Mike Shanahan's hair really is coated with teflon

Here's some insight into the tense situation at Denver that ended with the dismissal of the team's general manager (in name only, apparently). Mike Shanahan continues to skate.

This story asks if the Falcons have the worst group of quarterbacks in the NFL. I'd take it one step farther and ask, in all seriousness, do the Falcons have the worst set of quarterbacks in NFL history? These guys completely suck.

While we're at it, let's ask this question: Is Pat Riley the worst coach in NBA history?

Do not play a prank on Mets 2B Luis Castillo. Aw, hell. Why not? What's he going to do about it?

Meet the newest 100-mph man in Major League Baseball. And immediately wonder if he got there cleanly. Hey, it's the steroids era. No one is immune.

The Mavericks Mark Cuban banned all bloggers in reaction to a negative blog entry in the Dallas Morning News. Two days later, the Dallas Morning News struck back.

Even Syracuse's players know they're out of the NCAA Tournament after that loss yesterday to Villanova.

If UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is serious about boxing Roy Jones Jr., well, it sounds as if Jones is willing to make it happen.

Like him or not, and most of you apparently would say not, UFC weltweight Josh Koscheck gives great interview.

Morning: More strip joints for Pacman Jones

The Dallas Cowboys are thinking about making a run at Pacman Jones? Huh? Does Jerry Jones not realize there are 66 strip clubs in the greater Dallas area?

Trent Green returning to the Rams is like the Yankees exhuming Wally Pip and giving him a multi-year contract. Some teams should stay away from some players, and vice versa.

The Packers have a 30-year waiting list to get tickets. This guy tried to get around it by printing his own. So now he faces 30 years in jail. I'd call that irony. Not sure I'd call it justice.

Congratulations to the Seahawks for landing Julius Jones, but would someone in the front office please answer the phone? It's Seahawks RB Shaun Alexander. He'd like to know what the #&$! is going on.

The Cubs are going to replace someone named Felix Pie with someone named Elmer Fudd or Fuld or something like that. Forget Seattle. What the hell is going on in Chicago?

It was bad enough when Garth Brooks put on a uniform and played house with the Padres. Now Billy Crystal is going to do the same with the Yankees. At least Brooks resembles Mark Grace facially. Crystal just looks ... old.

The state of Arizona has declared open season on spring training in Florida. So what's the big deal? All the old folks are already moving to Scottsdale.

The Orlando Magic don't want to blame any one in particular for that disastrous home loss to Golden State ... but what the hell. Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson? It was your fault.

Shaquille O'Neal is gone. Dwyane Wade is now finished. The only question left for the Heat is this: How is Pat Riley going to pin the next 20 losses on Stan Van Gundy?

CBS has an agreement with an MMA outfit, which thrills me. One of the fighters for that outfit has a tattoo of a swastika. I'm less thrilled. Maybe even a little bit nauseated.

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva wants to box Roy Jones Jr. I love me some Anderson Silva, but Jones would knock him out in two rounds.

Morning: Pat Riley and Kelvin Sampson still suck

Pat Riley might miss a couple of games for the Heat to go on the road and scout college players. Because Riley is such a good judge of talent and chemistry. Jeez, Pat, do everyone a favor and take the rest of, oh, your career off.

Kelvin Sampson is already working on his next job in the NBA, where ethics are optional.

Concussion-bound LB Dan Morgan has settled on a new team to not play for.

Look, I like Eric Bynes as much as the next person ... but not as much as this person. Wow. And there's no excuse for the plaid pajamas on a grown man. Ever.

Johan Santana probably didn't sign with the Mets to be told to wear this particular strap-on. Only in New York. Or Port St. Lucie.

Aided by the Philadelphia media, which won't let this non-story go, Cole Hamels keeps on bitching about the horrific pay the Phillies keep forcing on him. Be quiet, Cole. Please.

You too, Donald Fehr. You lying, enabling, transparent bully.

This guy paid $10,000 to win the "bring a fan to work" promotion of the Detroit Tigers, and his reward was a spot next to Jim Leyland? Jeez, $10,000 doesn't go as far as it once did. I kid, I kid. I'm a big Leyland guy.

Pot-smoking David Harrison went mental in the locker room after getting a late technical foul for the Pacers.

One of the best lightweights in MMA will fight one of the best BJJ coaches later this month.
