Hines Ward Says NFL Hypocritical, Jeff Blauser And Honus Wagner, And The Crappy NFC West: Around The Perimeter

Dawgs: Hines Ward is mad about the NFL's hypocrisy towards pretty much everything. From policing hard hits while extending the season to discouraging gambling while lending the league's branding to lottery tickets, the former Georgia Bulldogs star was set off by repeated fines of teammate James Harrison.

Falcons: Did you know the NFC West's combined point differential since the Atlanta Falcons left in 2002 is -247? That number would be better if the Falcons had stuck around instead of any NFC West team besides the Seattle Seahawks

Also, on 790 The Zone, Tony Gonzalez says he feels like he did "five or six years ago." In the past, he's made it sound like he only had a year or so left to play, but this could be a sign we might get to hang on to him just a little longer.
