Good Morning Giants fans, its Wednesday, and its time to take our weekly look at some of the stories making headlines around the NFL:
- Rodney Harrison of the Patriots is expected to announce he is retiring today. Normally I don't use the Toronto Globe and Mail for football news, but I thought you would all like the picture in the story.
- In the USA Today, "The Commish" says the NFL is not trying to be "high and mighty" about gambling.
- Former kicker Billy Cundiff, remember him and his seven field goals in one game against the Giants? Well, he earned an online degree. I'm not telling you this because I think its news, I'm telling you this because I think its funny that someone else thinks its news.
- Santa Clara, CA has approved a financing plan for a stadium for the 49ers. Now on the other side of that coin, apparently the rollout of the plan was so successful that Good Ol' Al Davis may want in. Apparently Al is receptive to sharing a stadium. Now he tells us. Two years ago he could have had the Jets.
- The Panthers staff has been staging their own version of "The Biggest Loser" and so far its working, they've all combined to lose 500 pounds, or one Andy Reid.
- Vince Young of the Titans is wearing out his welcome in Tennessee.
- Finally, from the Philly Daily News, the NFL seems to have a better handle on the steroid problem than Major League Baseball. Is there a steroid problem in MLB? I hadn't heard.
- Ok one more thing, this has nothing to do with football, unless you count a "Frank Gifford" reference. If you haven't see this yet, check out the latest "Celebrity Jeopardy" clip from Saturday Night Live. I'm a longtime SNL fan, and to me, the Jeopardy sketches are some of the funniest of all time, and this one just might be the best. I always like to leave you guys with a laugh.
