  • Drew Rosenhaus' newest client is Lions receiver John StandefordRosenhaus announced the news on his Twitter page, saying that he thinks Standeford "has a good chance to be a starter this season for the Lions."  I know it's Rosenhaus' job to say good things about his clients, but I highly doubt Standeford will be a starter.  His first goal should be to make the team, as that isn't even a certainty right now.
  •'s Don Banks thinks that out of four franchise QBs on new teams, Matthew Stafford has the highest chance of struggling through 2009 due to playing for the Lions.
  • Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh is boycotting Madden 10 because he is only rated a 91, making him the sixth-best wideout in the NFC.  The five players with a better rating, Calvin Johnson being one of them, all put up better numbers than Houshmandzadeh last year, so I don't know why he has such a problem with the rating.  He actually blamed his numbers on his offense last year, which I just find funny.  Calvin Johnson played in a crappy offense as well, but his numbers were quite a bit better.
  • Rich Eisen is going to host the Hall of Fame induction ceremony next month since Chris Berman, the usual host, is going to be Ralph Wilson's presenter.
