Would you Adam and Eve it?

-- Some guy who is old enough to be mentioned in the bible has apparently got to have surgery on his ankle. Yes, it's Brett Favre, everyones favourite ditherer. It seems to have not struck many people that the reason Favre waits so long to make his mind up is because he hates mini camps. Well to be honest, I couldn't care less about this story, which is more than I can say for anyone who considers themselves to be a part of the football media, as the Internet and television is close to a cataclysmic meltdown with all the Favre talk going around. Proof if ever it was needed, that the period between the draft and the start of season is unequivocally boring as hell. -- So Dez Bryant is still in the news as a large debate erupts about questions asked during his pre-draft visit to the Dolphins, mainly concerning his mother. Now dont get me wrong I've not suddenly turned into a Dez Bryant lover, but this whole media storm about his mother, prostitution and his father apparently being a pimp can at best be labelled "sick" and at worst "a down right f&*%ing disgrace to all journalism". This is the kind of story that comes with a big red button attached to it saying "push to remove all sense of honor and dignity that our reporters and news agency might have," and thus should be left well alone. It has nothing to do with Bryants playing career and so I refuse to even indulge in the very basics of it. There are many media people who should be hanging their heads in shame right now. I would be. -- Warren Sapp. He's back on the NFL Network and the network is the better for it. He's lively, passionate, down to earth and very knowledgeable. Basically a happy, smiley version of Rod Woodson. Cheer up Rod. You and Sapp together form probably one of the best pundit partnerships on telly right now. Right, I've had enough of jabbering about random news lately, so hopefully at some point this weekend I'm going to attack a topic that's very dear to my heart: how much offense is enough? With plenty of rookie QBs heading into to camp and picking up their playbooks for the first time, I feel it's a topic worth treading on, even if it's only briefly. Until then, have a great weekend everyone.
