This week in the NFL: Bruno Boys Ziza Sounding Off (7/19)

Another week has gone by in the preparation of what is leading up to training camp in the NFL and of course the league did not disappoint when it came to head scratching news. Some of it borders on the funny side, whereas others just make you want to scream, “What were you thinking?” Let’s jump into this weeks’ topics as I bring it to you the only way I really know how: In Bruno Boys Ziza fashion.

-The Washington Redskins selected defensive man Jeremy Jarmon out of Kentucky in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft this past week. He was made eligible when he failed a banned substance test, leading to his dismissal from school. Leave it to the sports world to reward someone with good money for making a bad mistake.

-Talking about mistakes, I think the Minnesota Vikings are about to make a big one if they do bring in Brett Favre at quarterback. He has opted to semi-retire in each of the past two seasons and has been talking about retirement for many seasons beyond that. He was a great quarterback back in the day, and there is no doubt in my mind that he would be an upgrade for the 2009 season, but what happens when he wants to retire once again? Tarvaris Jackson will still have very little starting experience. I am all for upgrading your team if you think it will put you over the top to win the Super Bowl. Favre does not do that for the Vikings in my mind.

-Although Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall has asked for a trade, he has at least been wise about it and said that there is no way that he will hold out. That is a good thing. Beyond already being a bit banged up and needing extra time in camp, Marshall doesn’t want to go the way of Larry Johnson, Steven Jackson and fellow receiver, Javon Walker. All three have held out recently, and none have bounced back as they should. For once, something a little positive is coming out of Denver.

-This story hits a little close to home as I just lost a buddy in a firearm accident. The Steve McNair saga has taken another turn as it turns out that his mistress, Sahel Kazemi, purchased the pistol that took both of their lives from a convicted felon named Adrian Gilliam Jr. He has been charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

This is pretty unfortunate for Gilliam as he has kept his nose clean for the past seven years and has been a model citizen and parent during that time. He had sold the gun for $100 in an attempt to get the gun out of his home. Not only are two lives ruined because of Kazemi’s psycho ways, but Gilliam will most likely be used as an example in this case. The law must remember though, people kill, not guns. Gilliam had a major lapse in using his brain, but is it really enough to ruin his life as well as his families because of it? We will find out. There should obviously be some punishment, but because of his past convictions it will probably be pretty harsh.
