          I don't understand the dislike for Kiffin. He's the head guy in an absolute hell hole, yet the team has played pretty good ball since game one.

              Rodney Harrison says Ricky Williams is dirty, but not in the sense of 'he needs a bath'

              By MJD
              You can call Ricky Williams dirty if you'd like. But if you do, for the sake of accuracy, you should probably be calling him a "dirty hippie," not a "dirty football player." Patriots safety Rodney Harrison went for the latter. From the Boston Herald:
              Rodney Harrison, in fact, called it dirty. When asked if it was because Williams hit Vrabel below the knees after Brown already had scored, Harrison answered in the affirmative.

              “You said it better than me,” Harrison said. “There’s no place in the game for that. (But) it’s part of the game. You have to protect yourself. It’s disappointing that guys don’t take care of each other, but we’ll just have to be on guard, because there’s some dirty stuff out there.”
              I'm sure he's kidding. He has to be kidding. This is like Chris Henry saying that Warrick Dunn has character issues. It's like Scott Linehan saying Bill Belichick doesn't prepare his team very well. This isn't the pot calling the kettle black, this is the pot calling a snowflake black.
              This is the same Rodney Harrison who was voted by his peers as the league's dirtiest player in 2004. The same Rodney Harrison was given the same title by the same people in 2006. And the same Rodney Harrison who was voted in 2008 as the league's dirtiest player by the head coaches of the league.
              The Herald chose to play up the "OMG, Ricky Williams smoked marijuana!" angle, sneaking in a couple of clever digs like, "Ricky Williams hit a sticky issue," and "The Patriots weren't happy about getting smoked [by the Dolphins]."
              If you want to bring up the herb, it seems to me that it argues against Ricky Williams being a dirty player, as potheads are generally pretty mellow. Also generally pretty mellow are yoga instructors, vegans, and holistic healers, all areas in which Ricky has dabbled.
              Maybe Williams crossed the line on a play, maybe he didn't. You can make that call for yourself. But Rodney Harrison, who makes more dirty plays in a quarter of football than most guys make in a career, doesn't get the make the judgment call on anyone else.

                    Giants suspend WR Plaxico Burress for 1 game
                    By TOM CANAVAN, AP Sports Writer
                    1 hour, 24 minutes ago

                    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)—Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress was suspended for one game by the New York Giants on Wednesday for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

                    Since the unbeaten Giants have a bye this weekend, Burress will miss the Oct. 5 game against Seattle. The suspension takes effect immediately, meaning Burress will not be allowed to return to team activities until the day after the Seahawks game.

                    General manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin informed Burress of the suspension Wednesday morning before the team held practice.

                    Burress was not immediately available for comment. Drew Rosenhaus, his agent, did not immediately return a telephone call by The Associated Press for comment.

                    The Giants did not specify why Burress was suspended. FoxSports.com said that Burress did not show up for work Monday and did not telephone or answer phone messages to explain his absence.

                    Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon said the team was not confirming or denying any reason for the suspension.

                    Wide receiver is one of the Giants’ deepest positions. In addition to Burress, there’s Amani Toomer, Steve Smith, Sinorice Moss, Domenik Hixon and Mario Manningham.

                    Burress caught the game-winning 13-yard touchdown pass in the final minute of the Giants’ 17-14 win over the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

                    Burress was off to a great start this season with a team-high 18 catches for 259 yards and a touchdown.

                    The Giants signed Burress to a two-year contract extension that will bump his salary into the $7-million range over the next five years. The deal, which included $11 million in guaranteed money that will be paid this season, was signed just hours before the Giants kicked off the season on Sept. 4 against the Washington Redskins.

                    Burress then caught 10 catches for 133 yards in a 16-7 win.

                    Burress was upset that the Giants had refused to negotiate his contract after the Super Bowl, and refused to practice during a mandatory minicamp in June. He was fined about $25,000.

                    Despite playing on a sprained right ankle all last season, Burress had a team-high 70 receptions for 1,025 yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns. He added 18 catches for 221 yards in the postseason.

                    Burress caught 209 passes for 3,227 yards and 29 touchdowns in his first three seasons with the Giants, with all the touchdowns being thrown by Eli Manning.

                        Former Viking great Wally Hilgenberg passes away.


                        I remember Wally being part of the Puple People Eaters in the 70's.

                        Vikings linebacker Hilgenberg dies By AMY FORLITI, Associated Press Writer
                        Tue Sep 23, 4:25 PM ET



                        MINNEAPOLIS - Former Minnesota Vikings linebacker Wally Hilgenberg died after a battle with Lou Gehrig's disease Tuesday. He was 66.



                        Friend and former Vikings tight end Stu Voigt said Hilgenberg died peacefully surrounded by his family at his Lakeville, Minn., home.

                        "He'd say, 'It's not when you go, it's where you go,'" Voigt told The Associated Press. "He handled these last six months with a lot of dignity."

                        Hilgenberg played in college at Iowa and then spent 16 seasons in the NFL, including 12 with the Vikings from 1968 to 1979. Hilgenberg was a solid member of a feared defense that led the Vikings to four Super Bowl appearances.

                        Overshadowed by the Purple People Eaters playing in front of him, Hilgenberg started 116 games of the 157 he played for Minnesota, tied for 21st on the franchise's career games played list.

                        Hilgenberg led the team in total tackles with 110 in 1971 and his 13 combined tackles at Chicago on Oct. 23, 1972, remains tied with Scott Studwell for the most by a Vikings player in a single game. He ranks 12th on the team's all-time tackles list with 739.

                        Voigt and Hilgenberg met when Voigt joined the Vikings in 1970. Hilgenberg was already with the team, and because of their positions on opposite sides of the ball, the two "literally ran into each other every day for years" during practice, Voigt said.

                        "We were teammates and friends from the very start," Voigt said.

                        Voigt said Hilgenberg made him and other members of the team better players, but that Hilgenberg's strong faith and community involvement also made them better people.

                        "We were back in the era when athletes were role models," Voigt said. "He was a role model for myself and a lot of other guys."

                        Hilgenberg was active through his religious affiliations, in charity events and in his community. He was also an avid outdoorsman, Voigt said.

                        After the Vikings, Voigt and Hilgenberg remained friends and ran banking and real estate businesses together.

                        Voigt said the last few months were rough. Hilgenberg was in a wheelchair, crippled from the effects of Lou Gehrig's disease, also called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS damages the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, eventually leading to death.

                        "It takes away your body," Voigt said of the disease. "But I could tell the mind was there, and the twinkle in his eye. ... He was really quite a guy."

                        He is survived by his wife, four grown children, and several grandchildren. Funeral arrangements were pending.

                              Troy Brown retires:

                              FOXBORO - Flanked by his wife and two sons, as well as a video screen showing highlights from his career, Troy Brown [stats] announced his retirement this morning during a press conference at Gillette Stadium, ending the 15-year career of one of the most popular Patriots [team stats] players.
                              Brown, 37, who is expected to take a job in the media, retires as one of the most decorated players in Patriots history. The wide receiver holds the team record for most career receptions with 557 and is second in yards to Stanley Morgan with 6,366.
                              “It’s hard to let the game go,” he said. “It’s been a part of my life since the second grade but you can’t outrun Father Time no matter how much you try.”
