    getting more and more comfortable with the playbook He did have a solid college football career with Texas A M Tony Care I ve got three words for all Cowboys fans including me deal with it We can yell and scream all we want but it won t do any good Jerry is as stubborn as an Arkansas mule and he will never admit that Romo isn t his guy We re all left with wanting to hanging him one week and singing his praises the next To borrow a line from Bill Parcells Romo is what he is Sadly I fear that will never change Jesse Campigotto It seems everyone s looking to bury the Cowboys but they re 2 2 and as Grantland football writer Bill Barnwell argued on Twitter on Sunday they could be 4 0 or 0 4 without having played any differently Dallas four games have been decided by 3 3 2 and 4 points All toss ups With Philly 1 3 struggling and Washington and the Giants both 3 1 hardly juggernauts the NFC East is up for grabs Romo is maddening yes but this is no time to throw in the towel on him Lions receiver Calvin Johnson is off to one of the great starts He s the first receiver in NFL history to score two touchdowns in each of his first four games With that in mind can Johnson eclipse Randy Moss s record of 23 touchdowns in one season Jesse It s possible but I wouldn t bet on it if only because Matthew Stafford would probably have to play all 16 games for that to happen But how about these Lions Next week s matchup against rival Chicago at home on Monday night feels like it could be Detroit s national coming out party and after that they host San Fran and Atlanta before visiting Denver 8 0 going into their bye week is a real possibility Jason Davidson Right now it looks like Megatron is definitely up to the task I m still slightly in shock that the Detroit Lions now 4 0 have pulled off back to back second half comeback wins both of them on the road Still we have to remember that when Moss set his record of 23 in 2007 Tom Brady was the guy throwing to him Brady also set a record with 50 TD passes that year We all knew Johnson had immense talent since he started his NFL career but he was stuck on a bad team This year obviously is different and you can t rule out the possibility of Johnson reaching 24 TD receptions He ll need Matthew Stafford to stay healthy to have any shot whatsoever Tony Care Oh he has the ability to take this record into the next stratosphere Calvin Johnson is the best receiver in the NFL That s right he s better than Andre Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald With his size and speed Johnson

  • FAQ: NFL labour agreement
    10 year deal and would run through the 2020 season Q How will the salary cap be determined The salary cap will be set at 120 375 million US for the 2011 season and at least the same amount for 2012 and 2013 As long as the league spends 99 per cent of the cap individual teams are required to spend 89 per cent 106 8 million It will be interesting to see how teams like the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals who are notoriously stingy with their finances cope with the new system For the 2013 2016 seasons and again for the 2017 2020 campaigns the clubs have committed to spending up to 95 per cent of the cap Each team will also spend 89 per cent of the cap during that time Q What percentage of all revenue would the players receive Players would receive 55 per cent of national media revenue 45 per cent of NFL Ventures revenue and 40 per cent of local team revenue Q Salaries for rookies were getting way out of hand How does this affect the new players coming into the league There will be a cap on spending for rookies No more will you see contracts like the one St Louis quarterback Sam Bradford received last year one where the Rams guaranteed their quarterback 50 million One of the side benefits that should come from the new cap on rookie contracts is teams will now be more inclined to trade up to the No 1 spot in the NFL draft more often because they won t have to shell out so much money to an unproven player Rookies will now sign a four year entry level contact with a team option for a fifth Q What are some other notable parts to this deal Veterans will earn free agency after four seasons In addition there will be later training camps and no more full contact two a day practices Somewhere Bill Parcells is choking on his muffin Off season team activities OTAs will also be reduced from 14 to 10 With files from NFL com Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback Latest football Stories NFL Roundtable Week 7 recap In CBCSports ca s weekly NFL chatter the guys dissect the problems faced by the Chargers and Lions discuss the arrival of a new Cowboys running back and debate Tim Tebow s resurrection of the Broncos more Ravens roll into Jacksonville for Monday nighter Having outscored their opponents 100 38 during their current three game winning streak the Baltimore Ravens head into Jacksonville on Monday night to face a Jaguars team that has lost five straight more Burris Jimenez bound for Argos The Stampeders and Tiger Cats both made bold moves this weekend by benching respectively Henry Burris and Jason Jimenez Could the Toronto Argonauts be eyeing those players for a run at the 2012 Grey Cup Greg Frers explores more Rodgers Packers top Vikings to stay undefeated Aaron Rodgers kept Green

  • Fear factor influences CFL passing game | CBC Sports
    think about it a big help to defences in this regard because long before the opening kickoff an offence has already had a chance to look at those big hits in the film room A little pre game propaganda can go a long way The Bombers defence beat on the Toronto offence in two straight games for example and that s going to be seen by everyone else When you go into the game and you expect to get hit and the offence knows you are that style of defence it makes them wary of where the defenders are Johnson says And it kind of throws them off An alternative view Now just a darn minute says Geroy Simon current president of the CFL s Receivers Who Aren t Easily Intimidated Union First of all those alligator arms aren t always because you ve conceded the courage battle he says Sometimes catching with your body is a smart thing to do especially in the dangerous middle of the field because you re keeping healthy Besides says the B C Lions legend who one day will reside in the Hall of Fame this smell of fear thing works both ways I know there are times when I come out and I m running a route and I look in the defensive back s eyes and you can see the deer in the headlights look and they aren t sure what they re going to do says Simon a 13th year veteran who had caught 872 passes in his career heading into Week 5 You can sense it OK but Geroy you ve seen young receivers come to the sidelines looking like they want to stay right there on the bench Then what The game of football is a very humbling sport he says And at times it can turn to cockiness and if something goes wrong you can lose confidence real fast For younger guys you can go talk to them and let them know you ve been through it or I can do something on the field that s positive and that can help them feed off of it Simon showed exactly how that s done on Thursday night in Winnipeg by making a one handed catch right in the middle of two Bombers defenders and running it down to the five from where B C would score Too many of his fellow receivers dropped balls that should have been caught in front of the same defenders however Follow the bouncing player There are ways to tell if a defence has already gotten into the heads of an opponent says Alex Suber who guards the Bombers bulwarks along with Johnson Watch for example for that guy who is jumping up and down and being really physical right before the game trying to psyche himself up Or someone who is being really loud that can be a giveaway B C head coach Wally Buono once pointed out that all sports including

  • CFL teams closer than records indicate | CBC Sports
    field There are five to seven plays in every contest that a team needs to make if it is to win a football game a big catch a key block or a momentum shifting interception When you are playing with confidence making these plays is the most natural thing to do You find yourself in such a rhythm that clutch catches are just expected plays for you to make When you are playing with confidence crucial plays become routine When you are winning it feels like everything even calls on the field are going in your favour Take for example this past week s game that Edmonton hosted against Toronto Reed decided to go for a touchdown with three seconds left and it appeared as though the clock had run out to end the half with Edmonton stuffed at the goal line Toronto headed into the locker room feeling great excited for to play the second half But players were called back out to the field as there was still 1 5 seconds remaining giving Edmonton another chance to punch the ball into the end zone The Eskimos capitalized on the opportunity cutting Toronto s lead to only two points before going on to beat the Argos 26 25 Losing also a habit Losing on the other hand is not a fun experience Unfortunately as much as winning is a habit so is losing After their 0 5 start to the 2011 season head coach Wally Buono has described his team as fragile The Lions came into the season with plenty of confidence feeling good about their veteran defence and a promising offence lead by an up and coming young quarterback Football is a result based business and if you are not winning games the pressure mounts as everything is magnified and placed under a microscope The personal pressure that you place on yourself as an athlete tends to be the most intense When you are working hard to accomplish something and you don t see success it is extremely deflating You begin the inner battle to keep your spirits up along with confidence in your abilities As the losses mount the intensity rises and the criticism starts to escalate Head coaches start to yell and scream for no apparent reason at their assistant coaches who then start to yell at players who then start to get intense with each other Soon you have a wonderful symphony of senseless yelling Let the good times roll As a player you find yourself struggling to get in sync with the rest of your teammates You start to scrutinize every step that you make in order to be perfect The harder you work to be correct the more you turn your once fluid natural athleticism into a mechanical mess because you over think every situation rather than simply react Your fear of making the wrong step makes you a step late When you are losing you don t seem to recover from the

  • New era begins in B.C. | CBC Sports
    and CFL fans I was very interested in what my first impressions would be walking into the stadium Immediately I recognized that it looked taller or at least less confined The nine metre band of windows that wrap the roof of the stadium noticeably added a natural feel The sightlines were enhanced by a 360 degree group of video graphics similar to Rogers Centre The focal point of the stadium was definitely the massive four sided HD video board The high definition details were crystal clear and often looked almost 3D As the roof opened the fresh air was welcomed as the circulation kept the temperature at a comfortable level The annoying confusing echo that had become a trademark of BC Place was no longer evident As a player the positioning of the lighting in the old stadium often interfered with your ability to see the ball Although I didn t get a chance to experience the game from field level on Friday the lights have noticeably improved The Lions marketing department did a very nice job of making the unveiling a special experience The theme of the day was to pass the game on from the past generation to the new one I was one of several B C alumni that was invited to participate in a reception It was great reconnecting with old teammates and rubbing shoulders with past Lion greats After the reception we were ushered through the crowd of people surrounding the newly designed Terry Fox monument and down the orange carpet into the stadium to enjoy the game Chilling anthem Canadian singing great Sarah McLachlan sang the national anthem along with 50 000 proud Canadians which gave me chills Call me a sap but I found the moment special Following the anthem Lui Passaglia ran onto the field to pass the game ball to quarterback Travis Lulay and receiver Geroy Simon signifying the beginning of a new era of football at BC Place Leading into the game the big video board was a novelty that I enjoyed as various footage enhanced the entertainment level of the football game However as the game progressed I found that the screen became a distraction for me Sitting 40 rows up my eyes would be drawn to the rolling graphics and replays and by the time I realized that the next play had begun I had missed most of the live action Although I feel the graphics were an amazing addition to the game I believe that those managing the video board will need to be conscious of the effect it has on the crowd More effort will need to be made to allow the giant screen to be a complement to the game rather than overshadow it The massive screen also magnified the images and it seemed to dwarf the play on the field for me Whether people packed the stadium because they were rabid Lions fans or simply curious the end result was a full house Hopefully
