Transactions....

So which prognosticator picked the Rays in 7? Tim Kurjian? Steve Phillips? Tom Verducci? No. Me, baby. Just me.


Hey T.O. I know you badmouthed Bill Parcells and said everyone was a lot happier and looser now that Wade Phillips was in charge. So, let me ask you: How's "looser' working out for the Cowboys?


What the heck is wrong with the BCS? How do you rank Florida State—who's beaten exactly nobody—at 25 and leave Boston College off, even though they just upset no. 17 Virginia Tech. Oh that's right, because of the huge Southern Bias (or should I say, and anti-Northeast bias) in college football, and the fact that "Shoot, Florida State is supposed to be good." Collegefootballnews.com gets it right—ranking BC at 17 and not ranking Florida State at all—why can't the real polls?


Brett Farve looks old. Real old.


This comes just a few days after I nominated him for the Biggest Jerk in Sports, and this puts him in the lead for now, but Jeremey Shockey is already mouthing off against his new team. Shockey is saying the team botched the diagnosis of his sports hernia. Keep reading for the loud and stupid:

“I’m worried that this thing could have been taken care of in camp, like it should have been,” Shockey said after Sunday’s 30-7 loss to the Panthers. “If it wasn’t misdiagnosed in camp like it was there’d have been no problems. . . . Next time I know. When I get hurt I’ll get three or four opinions besides just the team’s.”
Well played Mr. Shockey. Well played.


Yup, there it is. The Fire Wade Phillips Watch started.


This week's Man of the Week Award goes to Trent Edwards of the Buffalo Bills. Coming off a concussion, Edwards played a super game, going 25 for 30 for 261 yards, one TD and no interceptions against a tough Charger defense. He also wasn't sacked at all and spread the ball around to 7 different receivers. Good job up there in northern New York, Trent.


And finally, in complete Tool news of the Week, Jose Canseco says he's sorry.

"...Jose Canseco...now says that book about steroids in baseball was his "biggest mistake." Canseco, charged last week with a misdemeanor after U.S. immigration officials said he returned from Mexico with a drug that is illegal without a prescription, says in Monday night's A&E Network's The Last Shot special that he shouldn't have written the book and "regrets mentioning players (as steroid users). I never realized this was going to blow up and hurt so many people."
He didn't realize it was going to hurt people. Get the heck out of here, Jose. You knew it was going to hurt people, hyped it as such, and fed off the proceeds. now that the money's all goone, you're sorry. Take the lies elsewhere, Jose and go away. Forever.
