Big Ben has been spotted, and cleared for take off. Mike Tomlin announced earlier today that the formerly accused rapist will assume his role as starter for the Steelers after there bye week. Pittsburgh has done a great job this season without Ben, one can only hope the ball continues to roll in the right direction with the former crash test dummy.
Carolina also made news today when it released former USC wide receiver Dwyane Jarrett after failing a field sobriety test in the early morning on Tuesday. This being Jarrett’s second DWI, it was only logical for the Panthers to move on. One can only wonder what will become of Jarrett, maybe Pistol Pete in Seattle would like to add a second Pac 10 alum to his roster today.
Speaking of Pete, he and the Seahawks made a splash this afternoon while releasing RB Julius Jones and trading 2 draft picks to Buffalo for Marshawn Lynch. Marshawn will now compete with fellow Cal teammate Justin Forsett for carries. You have to wonder what Buffalo was thinking or what Pete doesn’t know about his newest acquisition.
No matter who the Seahawks bring in, nothing will cover the stain that Sam Bradford and the St Louis Rams left on Seattle last Sunday. That game was a clear indication that Pete has a long way to go to bringing a quality team to the Pacific Northwest.
