Actin Cordial: Talking Vikings vs. Saints with Saints Nation

Misery loves company, right? Well, the New Orleans Saints are in a KIND of misery, one where they somehow have a worse record than the Vikings at 0-2, yet are probably – probably EASILY – a more talented team. But, just for a good laugh’s sake, what if they aren’t? I mean, what if they lose to the Vikings and go 0-3? That would be disasterous for them, and for their fans...

Mike Pettine hints Rex Grossman might be back soon

We should have seen this coming. The NFL simply could not be without Rex Grossman for too long. The Browns cut Grossman earlier today during a spate of roster moves, but Browns coach Mike Pettine said that might be temporary. “I wouldn’t read too much into it right now,” Pettine said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Some guys could come back. It’s fluid.”

Can Johnny Manziel win the starting spot tonight?

Johnny Manziel has never taken a regular season snap in the NFL, but he is not that far behind the Browns so-called starter.

My esteemed colleague and Johnny Manziel supporter, Eric Johnson wrote a piece a few days ago saying how Brian Hoyer should be worried after the recent signing of veteran QB Rex Grossman. All due respect, that’s just dumb. As the news just came out that Brian Hoyer will start game two of the preseason on Monday, it became clear that Hoyer is still very securely a part of this team...

Rex Grossman doesn’t make Brian Hoyer expendable

I was listening to Kiley and Booms this morning and Chuck Booms was entertaining the idea that Grossman’s arrival actually makes Brian Hoyer trade bait.

Then again, I didn’t really think that I’d be looking at pictures of Grossman in...
