Hey guys, I'm just letting you know this series did not stop. We had a bad storm rip through my neighborhood a couple days ago, and I didn't have access to a computer. I'm really sorry for not being able to get it up lately. And I won't be able to join the thread tomorrow, because I will be in Atlanta for the Orioles game. But alas, here's today's fresh-hot "Cup of Joe".

It’s not certain when the NFL’s work stoppage will come to a close, but many are hopeful its weeks away. With a much-shortened offseason ahead, league and club affairs will be kicked into overdrive. But Mike Duffy believes the #1 priority should be to begin contract talks with Haloti Ngata and Marshal Yanda. I have to agree with him seeing that these are two players we can't afford to lose.
