Tweet I heard about this Monday on KNBR, the San Francisco Bay Area Sports Radio Channel. Ben’s lucky to be alive. I’m not a motorcycle rider and reports like this one are constant reminders why. But more to the point, Ben was careless: he drove without a helmet. This certainly puts a crimp in the Steelers’ pre-season plans and upsets the balance of power in the AFC Central Division. If Ben can’t make a timely recovery, the Black and Gold will have lost another field leader alongside the retirement...

Tweet There’s no better passing game technician and teacher than Bill Walsh, architect of the great San Francisco 49ers offense of the 80s and 90s and the system that’s become the standard in modern pro, college, and high school football.

Coach Walsh then returned to...

Tweet Leave it to Profootballtalk.com to get the skinny on SF 49ers Cody Pickett. Here it is: PICKETT’S DECISION NOT TO PLAY IN EUROPE WILL HAUNT HIM Last week, the 49ers signed quarterback Shaun Hill, expanding the number of quarterbacks on the roster to five. Along with Hill, the team has under contract Alex Smith, Trent Dilfer, Jesse Palmer, and Cody Pickett. Per a league source, the odd man out is and will be Pickett. And despite what anyone connected to the team might say publicly, we’re told that Pickett...

Tweet I personally was never really excited about Cody’s future as a star QB with the 49ers. Why? Poor coaching. I think it’s best he get a release and hopefully a chance to catch on elsewhere. I’m not convinced the 49ers under Nolan is the best place for a QB. Pickett’s future as 49ers QB in doubtKevin Lynch, Chronicle Staff WriterTuesday, June 6, 2006 Cody Pickett’s 6-foot-3 inch frame, powerful arm, fleet feet and toughness have made him a prospect and fan favorite. But with Friday’s...

Tweet The Seattle Seahawks have sold out their season tickets this year and for the first time. It’s a great sign that beyond just winning, Seattle has responded to the total product — team, stadium, and marketing. The stadium’s a great place to watch a football game. Probably the best place. The video below captures all the excitement of the Seahawks’ victory over the Carolina Panthers for the 2005 NFC Championship. Here’s the Seattle P.I. Article and video Seahawks Notebook: Season-ticket...

Tweet I purchased an Intel-based Mac out of pure need. For some reason my iBook G4 would not start with the AirPort card in it, but would with the card out of it. (The Apple Store Genius Bar figured this out, not me.) So I’m in the middle of adjusting this new Mac, while the “old” one is being fixed by Apple. I’m excited to have two computers and will dive into doing some neat things with them. ...

Tweet The NFL war on the “player with an attitude” continues — and rightfully so. Meanwhile the Pats trade a fast kick returner that can hurt a opponent — just ask the Colts.

Tweet The Academy Award-winning star of the motion picture “Ray” Jamie Foxx gave a hilarious performance to a sold-out crowd at the Paramount Theater. In this video he talks about how rapper LL Cool J treated him on the set of Oliver Stone’s movie “Any Given Sunday” — leading to a series of altercations — and that Jennifer Lopez (aka J-Lo) was upset with Foxx because he reportedly said she couldn’t sing.

Tweet Billy Preston — known for his massive hit “Nothin From Nothin Leaves Nothin” — passed away today at the age of 59.

Tweet Rick Smith was introduced as the Houston Texans second GM in its short history today. One can’t overlook his success with the Denver Broncos, or the fact that he’s got a great relationship with Charley Casserly. I will be happy when someone doesn’t ask a “How does it feel to be black” question, but for now it’s par for the course. What Smith does get is the chance to work for a really nice and pleasureable person in Texans Owner Bob McNair. It’s not a case of equal opportunity...

Tweet Seattle Seahawks install their passing game this week. I think the addition of Nate Burleson will give them the speed at wide receiver they certainly need.

Tweet I don’t normally post on matters of player conduct, but they seem to happen at such an alarming rate I’ve changed my mind. Plus, they seemed to have cropped up over the last week. I saw the following posts on two Cincinnati Bengals players, Chris Henry and A.J. Nicholson, the latter a rookie with the team. Henry was charged with drunk driving and Nicolson with theft — stealing. Henry has been arrested three times since December, which means he’s due for another scrape in August of this year,...
