    As the parent of a soon-to-be 7-year-old son, I have to appreciate Cartoon Network references.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I'll jump in on the Ben-10 love. My 6 year old son AND 5 year old daughter love it.

    Good reference too. Now if only they had Alien-counterparts like Donte Stallworth and this would be even more fitting.

    The scary thing about the Stallworth story is that Niko was my nickname in high school (he spells it Nicco, but whatever). Perhaps I am the martian that takes over his body when he is on the football field. If so, I will be sure to drop every pass that comes my way when the Browns play the Steelers. I will also be sure to beat the pulp out of my own legs every time I get tackled from behind.

    That's just sick.
    That looks sweet, so why pay $1.4M to Washington who will rarely see the field?

    Because they had to tender him prior to the draft before they knew that Sweed would fall into their laps in the 2nd round. I realize that Dallas Baker has been impressive coaches recently at the post-draft minicamp and the OTA's this week, but when at the time they had to decide on their RFA tenders, Baker was just a guy who was on their practice squad last season. The tender given to Nate was the absolute right move (unlike the Starks transition tag).

    I guarantee you that Starks will have a bigger role in this teams success this year than Washington. Tagging Starks in the hope that a cap favorable long term deal could be worked out was the absolute right move.
