    Just watched the overly sanitized opening festivities. "This Kiss" by Faith Hill? That song's like 10 years old.

    Go Colts. I have Peyton in my fantasy league.

    I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I really want Denver to win their opening game tomorrow. They've lost their home opener 2 years in a row and it's time they break that streak.

    GO BRONCOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

    Bucs just lost... didn't go in expecting a W, figured Seattle would probably beat us, but they got my hopes up by the way they played in the 1st quarter. Just to have everything turn around afterwards, with stupid penalties and a couple injuries thrown into the mix. Caddy took a shot to the ribs-- don't know how bad it is-- and Garcia doesn't look like he can last the season with the beating he is taking.

    Don't look to be doing too well in either of my FF leagues this week either.

    Luckily though, my 2nd fave team, the Pack, beat my least favorite team, the Eagles.

    Jason Elam redeemed himself in the final second of yesterday's game, and it was fantastic! I am so happy that they won their first game - and on the road against a good team! GO BRONCOS!

    Still waiting for an update on Kevin Everett - had spinal surgery last night, no updates since around 9:30pm pacific.

    Oh my gosh!! That was such an exciting game yesterday. It was definitely a nail biter.

    I'm glad my Broncos won. Next they get Oakland at home. That should be a great game.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the injured Bills player. Unfortunately, it doesn't look good. There's speculation that he might not be able to walk again. I hope that's not true.

    Bills' Everett likely to be paralyzed after 'catastrophic' neck injury
    By JOHN WAWROW, AP Sports Writer
    September 10, 2007

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Kevin Everett sustained a "catastrophic" and life-threatening spinal-cord injury while trying to make a tackle during the Buffalo Bills' season opener and is unlikely to walk again, the surgeon who operated on him said Monday.

    "A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely," orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino said. "I believe there will be some permanent neurologic deficit."

    Everett was hurt Sunday after he ducked his head while tackling the Denver Broncos' Domenik Hixon during the second-half kickoff. Everett dropped face-first to the ground after his helmet hit Hixon high on the left shoulder and side of the helmet.

    Cappuccino noted the 25-year-old reserve tight end did have touch sensation throughout his body and also showed signs of movement. But he cautioned that Everett's injury was life-threatening because he was still susceptible to blood clots, infection and breathing failure.

    Everett is in the intensive care unit of Buffalo's Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital, where he is under sedation and breathing through a respirator as doctors wait for the swelling to lessen. Cappuccino said it will take up to three days to determine the severity of the injury and the recovery process.

    Cappuccino repaired a break between the third and fourth vertebrae and also alleviated the pressure on the spinal cord. In reconstructing his spine, doctors made a bone graft and inserted a plate, held in by four screws, and also inserted two small rods, held in place by another four screws.

    Doctors, however, weren't able to repair all the damage.

    Bills punter Brian Moorman immediately feared the worst when Everett showed no signs of movement as he was placed on a backboard and, with his head and body immobilized, carefully loaded into an ambulance.

    "It brought tears to my eyes," Moorman said after practice. He said the sight of Everett's motionless body brought back memories of Mike Utley, the former Detroit Lions guard, who was paralyzed below the chest after injuring his neck in a collision during a 1991 game.

    Utley, Moorman recalled, at least was able to give what's become a famous "thumbs up" sign as he was taken off the field. Everett didn't.

    "That's what I was waiting for, and that's what everybody else was waiting for," Moorman said. "And to have to walk back to the sideline and not see that made for a tough time."

    Utley, who lives in Washington state, was saddened to see replays of Everett's collision.

    "I'm sorry this young man got hurt," Utley told The AP. "It wasn't a cheap shot. It was a great form tackle and that's it."

    Cappuccino said Everett was alert and aware of the extent of his injuries.

    "I told Kevin that the chances for a full neurologic recovery were bleak, dismal," said Cappuccino, who works for the Bills as a consultant, specializing in spinal surgery. "I was honest with him, and he told me, 'Do everything you can to help me."'

    Cappuccino received permission to operate from Everett's mother, Patricia Dugas, who spoke by phone from her home in Houston. She and other family members arrived in Buffalo on Monday.

    Buffalo's 2005 third-round draft pick out of Miami, Everett missed his rookie season because of a knee injury. He spent most of last year playing special teams. He was hoping to make an impact as a receiver.

    The Bills now attempt to refocus while preparing to play at Pittsburgh on Sunday.

    "It's difficult because you know the situation," said running back Anthony Thomas, one of Everett's best friends on the team. "We have to move on. But he'll always be in our thoughts and in our prayers."

    Quarterback J.P. Losman said it was difficult to concentrate during practice.

    "It seems like every couple of seconds that go by it's always popping into your head," Losman said. "Going through a walk-through, we're looking for him, wanting to hear his voice."

    Coach Dick Jauron said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell called him Sunday evening, offering the league's support.

    "We honor ourselves by our work, and we honor Kevin by moving forward and working while never forgetting Kevin and never getting him out of our thoughts and prayers," Jauron said. "We're going to wait and see what the outcome is here and we're really hoping and praying for the best."

    This is just heartbreaking - my prayers go out to him and his family. I saw the hit and knew the instant he fell to the ground that it would be disastrous. The fact that he did have touch sensation and slight movement is good news, perhaps he will not be completely paralyzed. I will continue to check for updates on his progress daily. Such a young kid, such a shame.

    Browns Trade Frye

    Please don't throw Brady Quinn under the train. Let the young man get a chance to learn pro ball first.
    Browns trade Frye to Seattle
    Tuesday, September 11, 2007 1:59 PM
    By James Walker
    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
    BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns have reportedly traded quarterback Charlie Frye to the Seattle Seahawks for an undisclosed draft pick.

    The trade report comes 48 hours after Frye was benched in the second quarter of Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and could signify the beginning of the Brady Quinn era.

    Frye spent the past six weeks winning the open quarterback competition over Quinn and Derek Anderson, but the team quickly scrapped those plans Sunday after Frye failed to move the football on seven straight possessions.

    The third-year quarterback out of Akron was a third-round draft pick in 2005 and had 19 career starts with Cleveland. He was 6-13 in those games.

    Browns officials refused to confirm the trade when contacted today. But the fact that veteran quarterback Ken Dorsey arrived at the team's training facility Monday signified that something was in the works.

    Dorsey is expected to sign with the Browns today and replace Frye on the 53-man roster.
