Seeing ESPN’s NFL Power Rankings for Week 2 had me asking some questions about the darlings and the cellar dwellers of the NFL.

The Winless Pathetic Crapola’s

The Buffalo Bills

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined writing about the Bills, but it’s quick hits, so it’s not like I’m writing in-depth. They’re absolutely awful. The hopes of using CJ Spiller in a Chris Johnson type role has failed, primarily because Chan Gailey refuses to use him. 8 carries for 9 yards is abysmal. But, you can attribute the ineptitude of the Bills to their offensive line and Trent Edwards suckage.

The St. Louis Rams

With the whole Ines Sainz/New York Jets debacle getting uglier and uglier everyday, here at TRSP we wanted to have some fun with it. So for your viewing pleasure, here are 10 reasons why you can’t blame the New York Jets for wanting to put their sports all up in and around Miss Sainz.

Reason 10: (the rest are after the jump…can’t make it that easy)

Her ass is definitely in grad school.

As many Packer fans and fantasy owners found out yesterday, Ryan Grant is done for the season with a torn ligament in his ankle. Initially I would’ve said this was a huge blow, but after watching Brandon Jackson in the 2nd half (14 carries/54 yards, 2 catches/12 yards) against Philadelphia, I could only chuckle at what his ceiling is.

I really like Ryan Grant…probably more than I should have. His first season with Green Bay was absolutely astonishing, but since then he’s just been serviceable. (Okay actually, he’s been good – but never amounted to the standards he set his first season.) Maybe my expectations were too high, who knows. But let me be the first to say, the drop off between Grant and Jackson is not a big one.

Greatest Season Opening Game Ever?

With all the hype surrounding the start of the 2010 NFL season with a rematch of last years NFC Championship, there’s a couple things to look for tonight that will set the tone for the season.

As many of you TRSP readers know, I am a Packers fan. This blog is just one in a series of future blogs that I’ll be writing in assessing the past/present/future of the Cheeseheads. Today is the first of two Super Bowl blogs…starting with why they will not win the Super Bowl.


Aaron Rodgers eating turf, still a problem.

Michael Vick fought and killed dogs. 23 months in prison. Not to mention, may face more punishment from the NFL.

Donte Stallworth was drunk driving, when he killed a pedestrian. Spent 30 days in prison. He is suspended for the entire 2009 NFL season, but is still serving a shorter suspension than Vick.

Plaxico Burress shot himself in the leg, with an unregistered handgun, in a New York nightclub. Will serve two years in prison, along with another two years “supervised release”. Not to mention, was suspended by the Giants toward the end of last season, and is suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

Now I know that all these crimes occurred in different states, but that’s the problem. If Donte Stallworth would’ve done that same crime in Texas, there is a very serious chance that he’d be on Death Row. Plus, the fact that Stallworth tested positive for marijuana after he committed manslaughter.

The legal system sucks. Free Plaxico.

I’ve been wanting to address this lately and even more so now, after a customer I had at work, harrass the idea of him in the green & gold. I know a lot of organizations do not want to sign him, because of the bad press. But, can you imagine the team that does sign him? Imagine if Mike Vick comes out and proves he is a quarterback and can still run better than ever? Then the entire front office looks like geniuses!

I will say this, I know a lot of Packer fans don’t want him around, because of what he did. I know there are some that are against signing him, because it would kill the confidence of Aaron Rodgers. I know there are some “experts” that believe even though Ted Thompson is probably very interested, that he won’t offer Vick a contract, because of the flak he’ll receive from the publicly owned Packers.

You’re all wrong.

Michael Vick isn’t going to be brought in to replace Rodgers or to even give him competition. Vick is going to be brought in to shore up the unsure backup quarterbacks. I was against the drafting of Brian Brohm and I’m a fan of Matt Flynn. But, I don’t trust either one in the case of an injury. Vick also helps the Packers add another aspect to their offense, with the Wildcat. Yes, a lot of teams are now using it. Why shouldn’t Green Bay follow suit? Instead of having an Isaiah Stanback (no offense Cowboys fans) type player, you have Michael Vick. A proven NFL quarterback and a great runner who can provide confusion for defenses.

Aaron Rodgers, Michael Vick, Greg Jennings, Donald Driver and Ryan Grant all on the field at the same time? Absolute sickness.

So to the customer I had come in to my work the other day. The angry female Packer fan, who said, “Michael Vick would be better served, if they chopped both of his hands off and then let him play football”, I say, you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. And to all the Vick naysayers, remember this:
