Jets Sign Michael Vick, Cut Mark Sanchez

I figured this move needed its own thread rather than going in the big master free agency thread. Michael Vick signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets today for an undisclosed amount. This will of course do wonders for Geno Smith's confidence, I'm sure. It's not a terrible decision for Vick, however; he's reunited with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and the Jets will have a better defense and better chance to contend than, say, the Raiders.

Raiders Trade for Matt Schaub

Al Davis always liked the Raiders to have quarterbacks that could throw the deep ball, so, maybe it's best he isn't around to see this.

The Texans will get a sixth-round pick for their troubles. Blaine Gabbert currency!

They Coulda Been Contenders (But Fortunately Were Not)

If the NFL playoffs had expanded to 14 games in 1990, back when it expanded to 12, we would have coped with lots of 8-8 playoff teams in the last 20+ years. Here are some of the worst, including the Schottenheimer Redskins and Bubby Brister Eagles.

Eric Winston Elected President of Players Union

Offensive tackle Eric Winston is the new head of the players' union. He might be my favorite current player on Twitter, thanks to occasional actual insightful football comments. Let's hope he's as smart when it comes to labor issues. Winston played in Arizona a year ago and is currently a free agent.

Mandatory Monday: Worst Mock Draft

Somehow the "ever" got dropped from the tagline, or else editorial did not thing it deserved it. By striving to create the worst possible mock draft, I get to discuss some free agent moves while shining a light on teams' strengths instead of weaknesses.

A Night at the Bum Phillips Opera

The gang at Monk Parrots have been working on this production for so long that I think I mentioned it in a Walkthrough. Bum Phillips: All American Opera is the labor of love of some intellectual folks of diverse tastes who wanted to tell a football story in a totally different way. Kindred spirits to the Football Outsiders gang, in many ways.
