Good to here that Sully is back along with Sanford. dout Sully will play on Sunday but at least making progress. Can we just Cut that old man throw a pick from the team already? He is the biggest distraction that we have ever seen and he is finally showing his age. Not a good combination!

Nope but we can cut you from the base of knowledgeable football fans.

Kennedy is a good player. I feel as if he has earned more reps. I expect he will replace Williams next year so playing time will help him get to know the other defensive players. Someone has to get pressure on the QB and Pat isn't doing it. I do agree that Farve has become a distraction, time to sit for awhile. Plus more QB mobility will help the offensive line.

Kennedy is no rookie...he's pushing 30. Pat Williams is pushing 40, and he's just not in shape.

Kennedy is the better player, he should be getting more reps, in fact most reps. Use Pat on 3rd and short, and that's it.

"Honestly, I don't care," Kennedy said. "I don't care what they think because I know I'm going to go out there and do my thing to help this team win."

good guy and to be fair you would suck if you did care this aint indy

Jimmy Kennedy is as stupid as he is fat.

The guy was selected ahead of Kevin Williams. He's failed with 4 or 5 other teams already, and now this?!?!?

Jimmy --- You're a BUST. Shut the F up, loser. You're lucky to have a job in the NFL, and arrogant for thinking you deserve ANY playing time on a team with Pat and Kevin Williams.

Kennedy is hitting his stride, Pat Williams has lost his. Kennedy has his best years ahead of him, Pat's are behind him. No slam on Pat, but his position isn't for a 40 year old, and I don't think he can kick or play QB.

Why Kennedy went to the press is baffling, but he only said what the true fans are thinking. "Why isn't he getting more playing time"? He's a very talented defensive tackle.

Dude.

Dude, dude, DUDE!

Whatever it is you're smokin', please be sure you don't leave any leftovers in your glove compartment, because I'm sure the cops wouldn't let you off with a warning.

You really think Jimmy 'The Big Fat Turd' Kennedy is just hitting his stride?!?!?

EATING his stride, maybe. But hitting it? The guy's already an 8 year veteran. That's more than double the average career span of any position in the NFL.

He's as stupid as he is fat, and as fat as he is old.

Maybe he should have started 'hitting his stride' about 8 years ago. Bust.

The iron-man streak is not about the team so forget that. Nobody is going to break that record anyway so just let it go.

The Vikings picked up Pat Williams in 2005, when he was 33 years old. His best years were his first 3 with the Vikings. Kennedy hasn't been the every down guy...he's fresh, and (at this point), more effective than Williams.

Why is it you seem to hate Kennedy? What he do to you, steal your girlfriend?

If he was the better player, don't you think he would get more playing time? Don't start with the coach, he knows more than any fan.

The Steelers could sure use a guy like Jimmy Kennedy 6'5" 320lbs after losing Arron Smith for the year...
