Rate a cheerleader

I'm going to run another cheerleader vote again this season.

To start things off, you can rate them on a scale of 6-10 (hey, they've got to all be 5s or better!)

Later, we'll pare the list down and keep the vote going.

Saban punks lebron

This is a true classic!!!!!

How odd...

Jason Ferguson announced his retirement yesterday.  And we hear (seriously!) that it caught some of his teammates by surprise.
 
Ferguson, you may recall, was a stalwart at the nose position for a year and a half before tearing a muscle and missing the latter part of last season.  He was rehabbing, and at some point took a banned substance.  There were rumors about it being a steroid to help recovery, but he said it was an innocent mistake and that he took an over the counter medication that contained a banned substance he wasn't aware of.

And its totally plausible of course.
 
He was suspended for the first 8 games, but was looking forward to coming back strong, and finishing out the season.  My expectation was that Mike Nolan was going to come up with a more agressive defense for the first 8 games; and then he could put a big man in the middle to clog things up and change the scheme in mid-season, thus really crossing up teams who prepped based on what they *had* seen.
 
I guess that won't be the case anymore.  Unless Paul Soliai or someone really steps up to do the grunt work that Ferguson did.

As we hear it...

In an effort to get noticed in this town, Brandon Marshall signed with the Heat yesterday.

Jeff Ireland suggested the idea saying "we didn't want to draw attention to the Dolphins with our signing, but thought we could ride the hype surrounding the Heat and the big three."

Added Parcells "I was a little concerned that the Heat were becoming bigger news than the Dolphins.  People should just love the Dolphins, we're not about flash."

Marshall is expected to be a reserve 3-point shooter for the Heat this season.
