And the beat goes on. The sporting world is heating up as we near the end of what has been a great summer. Here is what has caught my attention.
John Fox finally made the official announcement today. Kyle Orton is the official starter in Denver. Also, most directions point towards Brady Quinn residing in the number two spot.

Following the introduction of all the players, Goodell took the stage to some loud and pronounced boos. As if nobody saw this coming. People in New York are generally unforgiving to begin with. With the current state of the NFL, I was surprised that the boos did not last even longer. Either way, Goodell handled it well. He and the owners want football too. I think we will have it come September. Continue reading
