Drew Bennett Now A Raven

By Jesse Jones

Drew Bennett has now become Derrick Mason’s replacement, if Mason decides to stay retired.  The Ravens signed Bennett today to a one year deal.  Bennett was injured last season, but from ’04-’06 he averaged Pro Bowl type numbers with the Titans..

  • 907 yards per season
  • 61 catches per season
  • Grabbed 11 TD’s in 2004

Bennett is a tall WR that the Ravens have been lacking, 6 foot 5 and 196 pounds, and can help stretch the field for the offense and Joe Flacco.  Bennett will most likely become either the one or the two receiver on the team.  However, if Derrick Mason does decide to come back, look for a WR group that has depth and can help be more effective in the team’s search to where they were last year, and maybe even further.

Who cares?

By Ben Linton

So apparently at SEC Media Day there was all this fuss about which SEC coach didn’t vote for Tim Tebow as a unanimous preseason all-SEC. If you haven’t heard about this story already, its pretty rediculous. They have tried all week to find out the culprit of this auspicious crime. Each SEC Coach, one by one, even Lane Kiffin, stated they voted for Tebow.

Then today it was discovered that Steve Spurrier voted for Jevon Snead from Ole Miss instead. Tebow wasn’t phased really, of course the golden boy has bigger things to think about. Spurrier then went on by apologizing and praising Tebow as the best quarterback he’s ever seen and tried to sugar coat the situation. But the honest question is “Who really cares?” It’s the preseason. Nothing is won in the preseason. No real awards are given out. This is just all hype. We should just wait until the players earn these honors on the field before they are given out. I don’t even know why ESPN is covering this story, unless they are trying to turn Tim Tebow into the next Brett Favre. It’s really just not that big of a deal.

Wiz Fill They’re Big Man Need

Oberto Brings Veteran Presence

Oberto Brings Veteran Presence

By Jesse Jones

As of today, the Washington Wizards have signed the big man they want to back-up Brendan Haywood and JaVale McGee: Fabricio Oberto.  Oberto is 34 years old and weighs 245 pounds, and has played the past few seasons with the San Antonio Spurs, and even started the ’07 season when they won the NBA Championship.  However, last year his role was much more limited.  In about the same range of minutes Oberto is expected to play for the Wizards this year, around 10 minutes per game, Oberto averaged 3 points, and 3 rebounds per game.

As of now, the Wizards roster consists of 14 players:

  1. Gilbert Arenas
  2. Mike Miller
  3. Caron Butler
  4. Antawn Jamison
  5. Brendan Haywood
  6. Nick Young
  7. Randy Foye
  8. DeShawn Stevenson
  9. JaVale McGee
  10. Andray Blatche
  11. Dominic McGuire
  12. Javaris Crittenton
  13. Mike James
  14. Fabricio Oberto

**This is the roster that is expected to enter training camp**

With the addition of Oberto, the Wizards will no longer see this:

What’s Good ESPN??

By Jesse Jones

Some of you may know already the troubles associated with Ben Roethlisberger, but for those who do not, let me fill you in. Andrea McNulty, a 31 year-old woman, has filed a civil lawsuit against him for rape last summer in a hotel penthouse. To no surprise, Roethlisberger has denied the charge.

But I’m not here to talk about all the details. I could make this into a video of What Grinds My Gears, but I felt that it would be more appropriate to blog about instead of vlog, because of the seriousness of the case. These charges were made last weekend, but ESPN has not made any news of it until late. Why is that? I could guarantee that if this story was with Kobe, which we already know all the publicity that occurred when he had his trials, or with Terrell Owens, ESPN would talk about it nonstop.

So why not Ben Roethlisberger?? I do not really know the answer. That’s just something I wanted you, the viewers/readers, to think about. I’m not saying that ESPN is racist or favors some athletes over others, I just have no idea why ESPN is keeping this story on the down low for so long. Let me know what you think.
