Actually, Kitna is on I.R. and his backup, Dan Orlovsky, is now starting. It ain't a pretty picture out there, I tell ya.Originally Posted by papillonI'm with you 100% with this post (of course, a paragraph and a deep breath would have been nice. ) The only thing I differ with you on is that I haven't liked Goodell from the jump and now he's just turning the NFL into a cluster f**k.Originally Posted by BURGH86STEELAll about greed. Owners do not want to lose money by cutting back on an inferior product with the preseason games. The more games, the more likey the Tom Bradys of the world end up on IR. As a fan, I dislike the idea. I dislike the idea of playing regular season games in other countries. I dislike the idea of having a franchise in London or Europe. Maybe Canada or Mexico would be ok. I dislike the idea of expanding the league beyound 32 teams. There are not enough quality players (especially QBs) to go around now. Goodell seems to see himself as a visionary on the Pete Roselle level. Have to wonder if any of his ideas will be successful in long run. Will his tough policies on players clean up the game or bring down the NFL? Players are always going to find any advantage they can. They always have. There is to much money at stake. So many things to question about Goodell. At first I was indifferent to Goodell. Now, I do not like the direction he is taking the league.
The quarterback situation is huge. Look at some of the starting quarterbacks in this league right now; Tyler Thigpen, Jon Kitna, Derek Anderson, Ryan Fitzpatrick, JT O'sullivan, Kyle Orton and I'm sure there are more. These are backups playing as starters. Adding more teams is a real good idea maybe Vinny Testaverde can come out of retirement again.
