Tweet EYE ON CAMP – COLTS.COM The heat has taken a toll on the Colts in the first two days of practice. A few players have left practice because of heat, and there have been times the tempo has been a bit less than Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy might have liked. Still, Dungy said Tuesday afternoon the first two days have been productive and that Training Camp 2006 is proceeding as planned. “We got a little sloppy at the end with some fatigue, but all in all, it’s been pretty good,” Dungy said after a...

Tweet Brady’s back, but the real story is Deion Branch. Ouch! $14,000 a day in fines? Deion Branch should tack the cost of each day he misses camp due to his poor contract to the level of increase he wants. It’s only logical. Think about it. Really. The Patroits know he’s unhappy with his level of pay, so why take more money away from him? That’s stupid. Brady back at Patriots camp after absence NFL.com wire reportsFOXBOROUGH, Mass. (Aug. 1, 2006) — Tom Brady returned to the field Tuesday...

Tweet Two years ago, Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick tore his hamstring during a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. On Tuesday, August 1st, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported a similar accident at this year’s training camp, but Profootballtalk.com says the AJC report is overblown. We have both articles here for you to read.

Tweet Read this carefully — Leinart has his own private jet from what this reads. Am I wrong about that? It says “One person spotted Leinart exiting his plane in the Orange County Airport, a long way away from Cardinals training camp.” Bush and Leinart in a role reversal By Adam Schefter – Special to NFL.com Adam Schefter’s “Around the League” reports and commentaries can be seen regularly on NFL Total Access.

Tweet Jets Training Camp-Captain Jet As I walked up and down the sideline in 90+ degree heat at Hofstra university this weekend, I kept hearing a voice in the back of my head saying ” Come on People, make some noise for your Jets, Let em know your in the stands.” Normally I would tell you that as a coach I’m used to hearing voices in my head, both my own and someone else’s. But this was different. This voice belonged to “Captain Jet” of Staten Island NY,...

Tweet Click to Play This is the third of a four part video series on my San Francisco Bay To Breakers run this year — my 18th time as a participant. I decided to take my camcorder and film as I went along; I don’t know that anyone’s done this before from start to finish. The Bay To Breakers run goes from the intersection of Howard and Spear Streets in San Francisco’s Financial District (Bay) to the Great Highway on Ocean Beach at the Pacific Ocean (Breakers). It’s a 7.7 mile course through the...

Tweet The Associated Press released this report based on Mel Gibson’s statement of appology. Well, at least he got it out there quickly; a great publicist, he has. But it’s too bad to learn that this is true. I wonder what was going through his head at the time? The following is the complete text of Mel Gibson’s statement regarding his arrest for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol: “After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for...

Tweet This video claims that police arresting Mel Gibson orginally attempted to alter the report they were going to file in the belief that if his anti-semetic comments his the public it would flame anti-Jewish feelings. This video features a South Park segment lampooning Gibson as a kind of backdrop with a collection of reports on the incident in the foreground. It also has a ticker explaining the details of what happened. I personally will not accept the charge that Gibson actually said this for one reason: the claim...

Tweet Joseph Addai could very well be the steal of the NFL Draft at least considering that he hung around long enough to drop into the lap of the Indianapolis Colts. This video you’re about to see shows a running back with a great combination of size and speed, who not only can catch out of the backfield, but has done this deep downfield several times. He’s not as quick as Reggie Bush in the video, but check the competition: Arizona State, Miami, and other speedy teams. Bush had his best games against teams like...

Tweet The Saints Joe Horn talks to the local media. Here is the transcript… Q: Can you discuss your first impressions of this camp? Joe Horn: “I’ve been in this game 11 years now, so it was camp. The first day of camp is usually like that. We ran a little bit this morning, so it was kind of hard, the evening practice. It’s football; it’s all a part of training camp.” Q: What was the first practice like under Coach Payton as opposed to Coach Haslett? Joe Horn: “It was fun. I was more...

Tweet And he did so, just as Profootballtalk.com reported that White was “supposedly” taking the whole deal of where he was going in the NFL Draft with a grain of salt, hanging out with Snoop Dog in the process. No kidding. Profootballtalk.com’s staff is so busy trying to afect that African American slang that blacks like me see through, they miss the story, again and again. Thank God. I’m not going to go on a rant, ….but maybe these guys will get a story right, eh? Makes you wonder what...

Tweet Profootballtalk.com reports that Indianpolis Colts First Round Pick, Running Back Joseph ADDAI signed for The deal pays $4.7 million in guaranteed money and has a total value of $11.165 million. That’s a steal, because Addai is as fast as Reggie Bush, has hands as good as Bush, and is going to a team that’s better than the one Bush’s on. Period. There’s no learning curve that everyone’s going through, unllike that for Bush and the Saints. It takes time to field a winning team. If...

Tweet The single best journalist in sports reports on the top deal; Fox Sports Jay Glazer says that the New Orleans Saints Running Back Reggie Bush signed a deal for six-years and $60 million. The agreement guarantees that Bush will not only be in Saints camp, but playing for the organization during the regular season, making several thousand season ticket holders and ticket scalpers happy in the process. I figured that Bush would sign a deal after Vince Young did, just because the QB arguably outplayed the USC tailback...

Tweet Conservative political pundit Ann Coulter gets a lot of airtime for being a jerk when the cameras roll (I don’t know her, so I can’t comment on what she’s really like, but I’ll bet she’s a blast in person). Ann makes comments that are designed to piss someone off, but in this media-driven culture she makes a lot of money doing it. It’s like I told my Mom, all a media producer cares about his that you’re talking about one of their personalities (and at times hating that person’s...

Tweet John Clayon and Len Pasquarelli For ESPN Roundup: Ravens reach agreement with NgataESPN.com news services The Baltimore Ravens reached agreement Friday on a five-year, $11.9 million deal with first-round choice Haloti Ngata, the 12th overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. Ngata, a 6-foot-4, 337 pounds defensive tackle from Oregon, was considered one of the key offseason additions to the Ravens’ defense because he is a big, body along the defensive line who will eat up blockers and make it easier for middle linebacker...

Tweet Leave it to former President Bill Clinton to shed light — a clear light — on the Israel-Lebanon conflict, as he does in this video. President Clinton informs us that Hezbollah presents a problem in that they hide within civilian communities as is the case in Lebanon and thus any attack on them will cause innocent people to die. If that’s the case — and the Israelis know that — then a sustained invasion is really almost a form of exterminating a whole group of people for the actions of a...

Tweet I had to post this because I just plain could not believe what I was seeing. Israeli kids — kids — signing bombs that were then sent over to Lebanon to kill. It’s painful not only to watch this go on, but to not only see one person’s inhumanity to another played out for all to see, but to witness youngsters doing something that they will certainly regret later in life. ...

Tweet You’ve got to see this. Someone decided to hook up the power wheel end of a motorcycle to a small kids carosel and in such a way that the playground machine spins. It seems the Crawley kids thought it was a good idea to sit in the middle of the carosel while it spun faster and faster. Watch what happens when it goes too fast… ...
