NFL players don't trust the guys in the suits, tucked away in the big offices, removed from the locker room. There is no loyalty (or honesty) here when it comes to the relationship between players and management.
Produce on Sundays or call the moving...

We all should be so disrespected that our employer pays us $7.7 million.

Perhaps the reason Matt Forte is so sensitive to sharing the meeting room, shower area and backfield with Michael Bush is he knows Bush can be more than just his caddie.

One good thing about Jay Cutler’s near-Super-Bowl-dream-ending injury: The Super Bowl dream remains alive, even if it now might be wrapped in Kevlar and popping Vicodin.
