Reportedly, the Raiders say they are willing to trade anyone on their roster, excluding (CB)Nnamdi Asomugha. Well, their division rivals, Kansas City Chiefs are also in “fire-sale” mode. It’s being reported that they are willing to trade anyone on their roster excluding (QB)Matt Cassel. So it looks like we may see some deals coming from these 2 teams in the coming days. One specific player the Chiefs are trying to trade is (S)DaJuan Morgan. He was almost traded to the Detroit Lions earlier this season. I’ve heard that the Rams have no interest in trading (RB)Steven Jackson. I’ve also read that there have been no takers for Browns (QB)Brady Quinn so far. I will go in depth with a huge report on all the rumors tomorrow. Got the flu, and need some rest, because I know tomorrow will be a crazy day in NFL news. There was so many key injuries today, which is going to make this deadline even more hectic than it was previously.

When I got off work today, I did my usual search of the web for some interesting material to bring to the readers of this blog. Everyone enjoys a good rumor (including myself), so I’ll bring you this one I stumbled across today. Supposedly, the Baltimore Ravens are trying to swing a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs to acquire their true #1 Wide Receiver, Dwayne Bowe. The rumor even went as far as saying that the Ravens would be sending the Chiefs a future 2nd Round Draft Pick along with a future 5th Round Draft Pick. Sounds like a little more than a rumor if you are stating exactly what rounds the future picks would be….right? We’ll see…..If it does, then congrats to the Ravens. They would be getting a young star wide receiver (taken in the first round of the 2007 draft), who has proven he has the talent to become a top wide receiver in this league for years to come. I just don’t understand why Kansas City would give up on him so early. I know that new Chiefs head coach Todd Haley wasn’t big on Bowe since his arrival, due to Bowe’s work ethic. He has slowly worked himself out of Haley’s “doghouse” though, and is becoming a top target for Chiefs (QB)Matt Cassel. Honestly if I were the Chiefs, I would hold on to Bowe. I understand that they are in a re-building process, and 2 more draft choices may sound enticing, but Bowe should be one of the cornerstones to their re-building process.

If the Ravens hauled in Dwayne Bowe, it would give them a receiver who would be able to fill the shoes of (WR)Derrick Mason once he retires. The Ravens have been in search of a young star wide receiver ever since the off-season, so this rumor doesn’t really come as a surprise. They were linked to Broncos (WR)Brandon Marshall, and Cardinals (WR)Anquan Boldin for much of the off-season. When Derrick Mason temporarily retired, they signed former Rams (WR)Drew Bennett, who just a couple of days after being signed retired himself. They were also linked to bringing in former Colts (WR)Marvin Harrison, but age and money i’m sure were the turn-offs to signing Harrison. We will find out soon enough though if this trade will take place. If it doesn’t, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were able to complete a trade for another young receiver before the deadline.

Here is a link to the rumor so you can check it out for yourselves.

WHO’S HOT :

1) (QB)Tom Brady – New England Patriots (vs. Tennessee Titans)
Why : The Titans are ranked (#31/32) in pass defense, giving up an average of 287.6 yards per game. They have also given up 13 touchdowns to pass attempts this season which is second worse in the NFL, to the Lions 15. The Titans are an unbelievable (0-5) and have had so many problems against the pass due to the early season injuries to (CB)Cortland Finnegan, (CB)Nick Harper, and (S)Vincent Fuller. This week they went out and signed, now journeyman, (CB)Roderick Hood to shore up their unit a bit, that consists of rookies (CB)Ryan Mouton and (CB)Jason McCourty, as well as (CB)Cary Williams who has spent time on the Titans practice squad this season. Look for Brady to exploit them, and owners of (WR)Randy Moss and (WR)Wes Welker will benefit.

2) (RB)Rashard Mendenhall – Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. Cleveland Browns)
Why : The Browns rank dead last (#32/32) in run defense, giving up an average of 170.4 rushing yards per game. They also have given up 8 rushing touchdowns this season, which is second to worst in the league (the Texans have given up 9). There are early reports that (RB)Willie Parker may play in this one but I don’t think it will matter if he does, or doesn’t. Either way Mendenhall should have a big game. He has shown he can be the Steelers #1 back, and if he has a good showing this week, I don’t see how there is any looking back as far as Willie Parker is concerned.

3) (WR)Greg Jennings – Green Bay Packers (vs. Detroit Lions)
Why : The Lions rank (#27/32) in pass defense, giving up an average of 244.6 yards per game. They also have given up a league worst in passing touchdowns which is a whopping 15 total. The Lions can’t seem to decide if (CB)Anthony Henry or (CB)Phillip Buchanon will be their starter. They play musical chairs with those 2 constantly. No consistancy at all. Earlier this week the Lions placed (CB)Eric King on Injured Reserve and signed free agent (CB)DeMarcus Faggins to take his spot on the roster. None of these options will put a stop to a hungry Greg Jennings this week.

4) (TE)Jeff King – Carolina Panthers (@ Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
Why : The Buccaneers rank (#21/32) in pass defense, giving up an average of 227.2 yards per game. They also have given up 12 passing touchdowns on the year, which is third worst in the league. I can say that this pick is a risky one, but it seems to me that Jeff King is becoming someone (QB)Jake Delhomme can rely on more and more with each passing week.

5) (WR)Donnie Avery – St. Louis Rams (@ Jacksonville Jaguars)
Why : My sleeper pick this week is going up against a Jaguars pass defense that ranks (#30/32) in the league, giving up an average of 273 yards per game this season, as well as, 11 touchdowns. (QB)Marc Bulger will be returning as the Rams starter, and looked really good in his short return last week. Donnie Avery will be the Rams #1 receiving option this week, and look for Avery to show this week, that last year was no fluke. This kid has talent!

WHO’S NOT :

1) (QB)Matt Cassel – Kansas City Chiefs (@ Washington Redskins)
Why : The Redskins rank (#3/32) in pass defense, giving up an average of 171.2 yards per game with 5 touchdowns allowed. The Redskins have a lot of drama going on with their team right now. Questions have come up about firing Jim Zorn, the players are blaming upper management, and players are blaming other players due to their lackluster performance so far. Despite all of that, I think the Chiefs offensive line will not be able to hold up the pass rush of the Redskins, which will force Cassel to make bad decisions.

2) (RB)Julius Jones – Seattle Seahawks (vs. Arizona Cardinals)
Why : The Cardinals rank first (#1/32) in rushing defense, giving up only an average of 71 yards per game, and a total of 2 rushing TD’s this season. The weird thing about this is the Cardinals rank dead last (#32/32) in pass defense giving up an average of 303 yards per game. Look for (QB)Matt Hasselbeck to stick to the passing game. The numbers say it all!

3) (WR)Terrell Owens – Buffalo Bills (@ New York Jets)
Why : The Jets rank (#8/32) in pass defense, giving up an average of 194.4 yards per game, with 3 passing touchdowns allowed. Don’t let these numbers fool you though. They should be a lot better because they have been without (CB)Lito Sheppard, and (CB)Donald Strickland. Both are expected to be back this week, and after the beating they took last week by the Dolphins offense, head coach Rex Ryan will not let that happen again. Terrell Owens has been practically non-existant this season, and I don’t expect him to be any more visable this week. I expect the Jets to be on shut-down mode, and they won’t take Terrell Owens’s bad season lightly what-so-ever.

4) (TE)Zach Miller – Oakland Raiders (vs. Philadelphia Eagles)
Why : The Eagles rank (#4/32) in pass defense, giving up an average of 171.5 yards per game with 7 touchdowns allowed. 7 touchdowns may seem like alot but it falls in line with the top 3 passing defenses. The Giants (#1) have allowed 4 TD passes, the Panthers (#2) have allowed 6 TD passes, and the Redskins (#3) have allowed 5 TD passes. Then you have to factor in the terrible performance from Raiders (QB)JaMarcus Russell this season and that is why the talented Zach Miller falls under the Who’s Not catagory this week. Zach Miller has so much damn talent, and it’s a shame it’s getting wasted away with such a poor QB. The Raiders need to get a new QB under center for the rest of the season, even if it’s their #2 (QB)Bruce Gradkowski. Maybe JaMarcus Russell just needs a change of scenery to help his cause, because as long as Al Davis is alive……the Raiders will be a terribly run franchise.

5) (RB)DeAngelo Williams – Carolina Panthers (@ Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
Why : My “beware” pick of the week is going up against the Buccaneers who rank (#28/32) in the league in run defense, giving up an average of 152.6 yards per game this season. Now, that is a pretty bad ranking for the Buccaneers, and you would think because of those numbers, “I’m starting DeAngelo Williams this week”. DeAngelo hasn’t put up huge numbers yet this season. Then again, he didn’t really get “hot” until the last half of the season last year. The Buccaneers have only given up a total of 3 rushing touchdowns this season, despite their lowly ranking. Another reason I say beware, is because (RB)Jonathan Stewart has been sneeking in some of those goal-line carries. So if you have a more viable option this week at RB, start him instead.
