  • Ron Brace stepping up would be nice. I liked him coming out but from what I've read, he didn't look too good last year.

      Actually, Warren has been constantly praised by the coaching staff throughout training camp and did a really nice job from what I heard in the preseason game as well. He's the one I'm most excited about, and I think he'll play well this year. On the other side, it seems like it'll be Mike Wright as the starter with Damione Lewis rotating in. Wright is a solid player, but probably not meant to be a starter. Lewis will have to be able to produce a little bit. I'm not holding my breath for Ron Brace making an impact this year. Myron Pryor seems to be playing more nose tackle than anything.

        If you don't love the type of work you do, than maybe it's not.

        I know we all love football and would love to play sports professionally. But it's often forgotten that it's ultimately a job for these guys. Some people love their jobs, some hate their jobs, and the majority just grind it out for a paycheck. I can't imagine that the dynamic of the NFL is that much different. For all we know, many lose their passion to play as early as college, but they stick with it because they know it's their breadwinner (whether they go pro, or play in order to pay for a further education in another field).

        I know that it's a game, and they should be incredibly grateful for getting paid a ton of money for it. But I have a lot of respect for a guy like Coffee, who can be honest with himself and know that he doesn't have what it takes to commit being a professional football player.

          Wow, ouch.
          Maybe they can trade back with Oakland for Seymour, add some veteran leadership.

            well it's good for them if Warren works out with not much else at DE. He's been a gap-shooting 4-3 tackle his whole career and was shipped out of Cleveland when they moved to a 3-4 b/c of this despite having a bad DLine, and wasn't great in Oakland in any kind of 3 man front role. Lewis I think can be a decent rotational guy in any system.

              • Buffalo is on the clock..... Jake Lockner.....

                BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson will have more tests to determine the severity of a left hand injury that will force the starter to miss at least the remainder of the preseason.

                Jackson's agent, Jerome Douglas, told The Associated Press by telephone on Saturday that it's too early to determine whether his client will require surgery on what he referred to as "a bone injury."

                Douglas added that depending on what team doctors inform Jackson, it's likely the player will seek a second medical opinion.

                "All the diagnostic tests have not been fully performed, but he's going to be out for a little bit," Douglas said, noting that Jackson is scheduled to meet with doctors Saturday.

                Jackson was hurt in a 42-17 preseason loss at Washington on Friday night. Following the game, coach Chan Gailey didn't divulge the nature of the injury, and would only say that Jackson will miss Buffalo's final three preseason games.

                "We hope to get him back for the first game," Gailey said, referring to Buffalo's regular-season opener against Miami on Sept. 12.

                Jackson was hurt during a 7-yard run on Buffalo's second play from scrimmage while being pulled down by the facemask by safety Kareem Moore, who was penalized on the play. Jackson had been using his left hand to stiff-arm Moore, and then landed on the same hand as he fell to the turf.

                Jackson did not return. A video on the Bills' website shows Jackson on the sideline wearing a cast on his left hand.

                    I think RB Ben Tate, the second-round pick from Auburn, is done for the year because of a broken ankle. We'll find out Sunday. 36 minutes ago via web

                    Dizon believed to be out for the season ... waiting for confirmation
                    He was backing up MLB, not big news but pretty much locks up Caleb Campbell making the team.

                    • Losing Tate sucks for the Texans.

                      • Damn, losing Tate for the year freakin sucks. I wanted the Lions to get him and I was hoping he'd do good for the Texans.

                        As far as losing Dizon for the year.. Eh. I feel sorry for him, but I'd be more upset if we lost someone that actually should've been picked by us. Such a horrible, horrible pick.

                              • Any word on Colt McCoy? He left the Packers game with what looked like a right arm/shoulder/rist injury. Speculating, it looked like he hit his right hand on a helmet and maybe bruised or possibly broke his wrist.

                                Thanks to BK for the sig
