It is officially the NFL's "off-season" but as ESPN's Adam Schefter points out, is there really an off-season when it comes to the NFL? Between the NFL Combine, Draft, Mini-Camps, Training Camps, Free Agency, Coaching Changes, and Trades, there may be an off-season but there is never a dull moment.
Around The NFL:
ESPN NFL32 @NFL32
: Steelers introduce Todd Haley as new offensive coordinator. Send us your comments on how the Steelers offense can improve #NFL32-
BE- Am shocked
by this move by Pittsburgh. Tomlin and Haley may clash a lot behind the scenes.
OAKLAND RAIDERS @RAIDERS
: The Raiders have released cornerback Stanford Routt
BE- Get use to
seeing this a lot from every team across the league. Players will be cut, signed, extended, tagged, etc. Welcome to the Off-season.
: Thanks to all who gave to our #SuperBowl food drive! We sent 450lbs of food to Indy's Second Helpings, couldn't have done without u!
Warren Sapp @QBKILLA:
Peyton Manning To The Dallas Cowboys? #FoodForThought
BE- Rumors Rumors Rumors. Just get use to the idea of hearing Peyton Manning will play for NFL Team X in 2012. Because pretty much every franchise has been linked to Peyton (even the teams who don't need a QB, as shown here by Warren).
Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter:
RT @PeteHanabergh: What do u do now that nfl ended? .. Never ends. @BShah23 points out combine in 15 days, free agency in 34, draft in 78.
BE-Couldn't be more true. Never a dull moment with the NFL.
: Lawmakers say Sept 11 heroes deserve commemorative plates before Super Bowl champion #Giants: http://apne.ws/xLpQOY
Packers planning to raise season-ticket prices by $3-5.
BE-The Packers are one of the best"products" in the NFL. Good Product=Higher Price point. Simple Economics.
Reggie Wayne Likely To Leave Indy? bit.ly/y0Wu8f
BE-No Peyton and
now no Reggie. Say goodbye to the Colts of yesteryear.
WFAN Sports Radio 66 @WFAN660
: Victor Cruz: I Deserve To Be Paid More cbsloc.al/A0PAvm-
BE-He does. Plain
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM:
Jake Ballard said optimistically his rehab could be 6-8 months or so. But he does not want to rush back and suffer a setback.
Thanks to the magic of Sound FX, you can hear what the @Giants' #SB46-winning drive sounded like on the field: nfl.com/videos/nfl-fil…
BE-Sound FX is
one of my favorite shows on NFL Network and its highlights like this that remind me why.
Memo to new @Giants fans: your starting QB's name is "Manning". Not "Sanchez". blogs.nfl.com/2012/02/07/gre…
BE-Girls like this
RUIN the reputation of female NFL fans across the globe. What an embossment.
John DiTullio @JohnDitullio:
Rob Gronkowski is only guilty of being young. Told by father of a girl who was at the party that several girls ripped his shirt off.
off steam in their own way. Gronk does it by dancing like Frankenstein in the club. #DontHateThePlaya
Ralph Vacchiano @TheBlueScreen
: Belichick to Pats: 'Make them throw to Manningham' ... nydn.us/yyYL67
BE- Of the Giants
3 WRs, Manningham is the most inconsistent, so even though he came through with a big catch, Belichick's plan was correct in nature.
Bill Simmons @sportsguy33:
Just watched Inside the NFL's SB 46 recap w/ the NFL Films audio. I actually feel worse. Note to other Pats fans: don't watch.
fans should probably turn off TVs, computers, radios, etc for the next week or so.
Chadd Scott @ChaddScott:
Do you realize you're living through the most exciting, unsettled & historic times in college football history?
BE- Did not realize that, but thanks for the enlightenment.
Papa Cane @SaveUMFootball:
NFL Combine & Miami Hurricanes: 8 Miami Hurricanes have been invited to the NFL Combine. Only second to Alabama (9). #NFLU
BE-This year's combine will be filled with a lot of talent. #CANTWAIT
From Football Nation:
Kerry J. Byrne @footballfacts
: Not to nitpick, but it's 2 SuperBowls in 5 years for . Folks keep writing 2 in 4. 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 = 5 seasons.
