If we build a retractable-roof stadium we can lure Superbowls (like Tampa) as well as the Detroit Lions to Orlando.

And don't forget major bowl games and March Madness tournaments and possibly baseball and the Olympics and business conferences and so on and so on.

Well, it is true, unfortunately for Flacco, being a good rookie QB, since he showed that side of himself against us. He still has next year.

Ya think Polamalu was listening to all the hype last week about how Ed Reed is the best safety in football?

I don't think the NFL has any interest in having four NFL teams split the Florida market. Still, though, how cool would that be! Baseball and the Olympics could be an outside possibility, though, but I don't think you'll get any funding without a guarantee from a regular tenant (meaning a major-sport team).

I don't know. I think he might have heard it, in talking w/other players, or maybe someone had brought it up in locker room talk. I think that what also makes this man such a great guy, is that he puts on NO false fronts, likes to enjoy his leisure time w/his wife(& now little baby), kick back & relax & not let trivial things get to him. He is SO focused on that field, has faith in God, himself, his team, & is very humble & so concentrated on his efforts when in motion. I think he just lets everything else bounce off of him.
(Kind of how he bounced Flacco off of him)
