Rothlisberger, Jarrett, and Lynch

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.

  1. The Rams have lost 10 of 11 to the Seahawks, and I don’t think it breaking news that the Hawks have a long way to go.

    Pete is finding ways to compete WHILE rebuilding. He deserves SOME credit (wins vs. division favorites SF and SD). This team is decimated of talent and Pete needs a couple more drafts to build it.

    By the way, have you seen the rookie Earl Thomas? 3 INT’s in 2 weeks. 1 returned for a TD. Keep up with those drafts and we’ll be back on top of the division in no time.

    • Tho you make some very valid points about the Seahawks, you seem to forget that tho you may call it a team victory against the Chargers, it was more like Leon Washington have the game of his life. And 2 of the 3 picks that Earl Thomas has came at the hands of Phillip Rivers being forced to throw, due to Leon placing 14 unanswered on him..

      I will agree Pete is a great coach, this I know from having watched him for several years at USC. But dont drink the Kool Aid so quik. The Rams could easily be 3-1 if it weren’t for a late missed field goal by Josh Brown versus the Raiders. The Rams are fair more under rated than you or anyone gives them credit for. Far more under rated than the 49ers are over rated. And lets not forget each team plays in the weakest of any of the divisions in football.

      Time will tell for both teams,
