Slice of Cheese for 1/22

New, comments

That's right, by popular demand, we'll be calling this segment the Slice of Cheese! If I'm feeling creative, I might try to label each post with a particular type of cheese that I think somehow matches the quality and type of the content.

But enough of my yakkin'. Whaddaya say? Let's boogie!

The Press-Gazette examines the relationship between newly-hired Seahawks GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll.

The Journal-Sentinel discusses how assistant coaches might be hit harder than players if there is a lockout in 2011.

More to come after the jump.

Packers lineman T.J. Lang has nominated his high school football coach, Albert Fracassa, for the NFL High School Coach of the Year. Fracassa is a finalist for that award.

Bears' RB Matt Forte had surgery on his left knee recently. Perhaps this is why he didn't look as explosive this season as he did in his rookie year.

The ESPN "experts" have made their picks for this weekend's games. Some interesting notes: The Saints have 6 of a possible 10 votes, but the public (SportsNation) seems to think that the Vikings will win. Adam Schefter solidifies himself in my mind as being a great rumor guy and a mediocre analyst by being the only one to pick the Jets.

As if the Michael Vick dogfighting ring and jail experience hadn't already been beaten to death (I swear, no pun intended), he's now signed up to do a reality show on BET that will tell his side of the story. At least it won't be on ESPN, cutting into my valuable women's basketball-watching time.

While I don't have a link to it (mainly because I haven't yet been willing to pay for an ESPN Insider account), draft "guru" Mel Kiper was on SportsCenter Thursday morning discussing his first mock draft for 2010. He specifically mentioned that he is projecting the Packers to draft USC safety Taylor Mays with the 23rd pick.

Finally, as you can see, I tend to make a lot of pop culture references in my posts. Starting today, I encourage you to try to identify where these quotes/images are coming from. The first person to correctly guess the source wins...bragging rights until the next post. If they're too easy, I'll stop putting up images and make the references more obscure. I'm hoping this will be a fun way to get some fun discussions going in the comments.
