    Yeah CB, them and west coast teams mainly. The split national games are almost all western teams. I saw a few Texans games last year, but now we don't have ESPN, so the choices are even more limited.

    Drew Bennett, still unsigned,is trying out for the Bucs. Gotta love this squib, which states that Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton are the starters for Tampa. Bryant is a huge head case, so bad that he was actually out of the league for a year, but still overall has gotten chance after chance and finally produced in a big way last year. Clayton had ahuge rookie year in 2004 buthas beenterrible for the past four seasons and yet is still somehow a starter. That's a joke, a really bad joke.

    <DIV =entry->


    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tomorrow will work out former Rams receiver Drew Bennett, according to his agent.


    Bennett was the Rams' No. 2 receiver last season after they released Isaac Bruce, but he broke his foot on the fourth play of the Rams' regular-season opener.


    Prior to that, Bennett had only missed five games in his career. He could provide the Bucs with a veteran at their No. 3 wide receiver, behind Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton.

    Drew is done:

    Drew Bennett retires.

    At only 31 years of age, Drew decided to call it quits when old injury flared up... [​IMG]

    i was hoping for him to have a huge year with Flacco and the Ravens, he could have easily gone over a thousand yards but seems like his body wouldn't let him.

    Its sad to see him go. Having to go through the Caste System's white WR apprenticeship program doesn't help either.

    I just hope Flacco can have a good season despite the lack of talent around him. if Flacco starts out bad due to the talent around him i am sure the dwfs will immediatley start calling for Troy Smith.

    Yes, Mason did unretire, and has reported to Raven's camp.

    I'm surprised this story hasn't received more attention here. What player signs a free agent contract and then retires two days later? How can anyone accept that at face value?

    Bennett has shown poor judgment previously; a few years ago, he was the highest profile free agent WR, yet signed a contract with the Rams knowing that he'd be the third receiver. No black WR with similar credentials would ever do that. Now he retires right after working out and being signed by a team that will probably feature him as the #2, if not the #1 WR? What is going on there?

    This is why I believe in conspiracies. Did the league mandate that he retire? Were they concerned that, with an already alarming number of white defensive players, an offense featuring a young white QB, prominent white TE and a go-to white WR would just be too much for Don King's America? Inquiring minds want to know....

    He reinjured his knee, got frustrated and retired. There is something certainly not right going on in the NFL but I don't see the league making a player retire two days after he signs a contract with the Ravens.


    ps by the way, welcome back bigunreal!Edited by: guest301

    Welcome back bigunreal! I hope you come around more often- especially during this football season- cause we enjoy your posts. But so you don't get too down on things- Forget the (N)ot (F)or Whites (L)eague, (N)ational (F)arce (L)eague, the (N)on-white (F)awning (L)eague or whatever you want to call it.

    Start avidly watching college football (like I have done). Merely follow the NFL for the few white skill players that actually get a chance to play in a game. And we all know what happens in that case. They prove their studs like Wes Welker, Kevin Curtis and Peyton Hillis. Heck, even the hated position switcher- Matt Jones- made the best of a bad team and situation last year and looked good.

    Another white receiver lost. [​IMG] I was expecting a good year from Drew if he was healthy.

    I wish my old external hard drive hadn't crashed, I had a lot of games from 2005 and 06 each year he went over 700 yards, only had a few from his 2004 season when he had over 1,000 and tied the record for most td catches in a 3 game span with 8
