Montana played in a league where the QB was demolished every game. Brady is a sissy and can't even come near Montana's jock strap. Its because of pansies like Brady and Brees we missed a chance to win it all this year.

f**k the new NFL. Its not football anymore. Its something else.
ESPN.com's Calvin Watkins suggests the Cowboys could consider trading Morris Claiborne.
Claiborne has been a bust through his first two NFL seasons and dealt with multiple injuries last year. He's currently behind Orlando Scandrick as the Cowboys' No. 3 corner and could be shopped for a mid-round pick. Claiborne is entering a make-or-break year in 2014. Mar 1 - 3:51 PM Source: ESPN.com

Very interesting. I'd take Claiborne for a mid-rounder. He'd be a good fit here. He's a off-man cover corner, miscast in Dallas as a Tampa 2 zone press corner.
Rams released CB Cortland Finnegan.

Finnegan, 30, was scheduled to count $10 million against the cap. The Rams clear a much-needed $4 million in cap space with the move. Before landing on injured reserve with a fractured orbital bone in November, Finnegan was getting routinely beat in coverage as the slot corner. He signed a five-year, $50 million deal ahead of the 2012 season and doesn't appear to have much left.

He looked pretty good in the limited time I saw him play but he did get hurt a lot.

Reid and Claiborne we're teammates for 2 years as well. Could be an interesting dynamic if they have quality chemistry.

Time for Reid to do some recruiting. Change of scenery and a better fitting defense could be just the thing Claiborne needs to fulfill the expectations of the sixth pick of the first round.

Last season, Claiborne was an emotional mess. While rehabbing from a hamstring injury, Claiborne's father passed away suddenly. And just days after losing his father, he became a father himself to a baby girl.

Dealing with the life of the NFL and the realities of the world can be difficult to do sometimes, especially for a player in his early 20s. The Cowboys can give Claiborne a pass for roughly the last month of the 2013 season due to his mental state. Claiborne wanted to play, but his body and personal issues prevented that for a time.

It's easy to focus on Claiborne and say he's come up short of expectations and you would be fair in saying that. Trading him could be an option for the Cowboys if they believe someone is willing to give them a third-round pick.http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/118694/is-trading-morris-claiborne-an-option

Damn that is a rough go of it for Claiborne. s***y few months with one happy ending to it though.

I'd do that in a heartbeat for real though. A 3rd rounder for a top 15 pick? Hell we did that to them for Reid. We'd fleece the Cowboys a 2nd time in 2 years, even if someone argues Morris was overdrafted lol.

This, what our team and coaches would do for this guy! Make it happen!

Baalke's got two 3rd rounders in his pocket #77(Tennessee's pick) or #94. Hell yeah why not?

NFL Teams May Try to Acquire Saints TE Jimmy Graham, but He's Not Worth the Cost

The New Orleans Saints recently utilized the franchise tag on tight end Jimmy Graham. This means any team that wants him needs to write a fat check and relinquish two first-round picks. That is the NFL equivalent of losing a body part.

But Graham still could leave without an issue.

Around the league, Graham is viewed by general managers, scouts and coaches as almost a tight end deity. They talk about him the way Wall Street dudes talk about a world without government regulations. It's astounding to hear.

The best way to state this: Word is beginning to leak around the league that one or more teams will make a run at Graham and are more than willing to give up two first-rounders to get him. What hasn't leaked yet are the names of the teams.

"I think the only players more valuable than Jimmy Graham are three or four quarterbacks," said one AFC general manager. "That's it."

It's true love.

Thus, several general mangers say the Saints will have to fight to keep Graham, and the heavy price tag will not be as intimidating to some teams. These executives believe a handful of franchises are preparing offers to get Graham. They say this isn't speculation. However, no teams have officially revealed their hand. So, for now, it's partially speculation.

Seattle? The Patriots? It's not certain, but the consensus seems to be the franchise(s) poised to make a run at Graham are among the bottom half of the draft. (A sleeper candidate I continue to hear is Baltimore.) And do not rule out teams that have salary cap issues, like the Patriots. I've seen it a dozen times—teams that want a player bad enough always somehow find the cap room. Even if they have to cut players, the lawn dude and the cheerleaders.


(A Packers official did tell me the idea of Green Bay salvaging its future for a tight end was "dumb beyond dumb…won't happen.")

And yes, as talented as Graham is, as game-changing as he can be, anyone giving up two No. 1 picks—even lower top picks in the 20s and 30s—would be a ding dong.
