Todd Archer got a little time with Wade Phillips here, here and here

Key quote on Gerald Sensabaugh:

"Sensabaugh's a cover safety. He can play strong [safety] but he can cover well, so that gives us some versatility. They can't split out a tight end on us or a back. He can play the slot guy and play man to man so he gives us some versatility at strong safety that we hadn't had."

Nothing says Thanksgiving Day like a game with the...Raiders? Well, they've been the biggest turkey of a franchise over the last few years. (Weak joke, I know)

We won't be playing the Texans in pre-season this year but we do get to play a team in the regular season that was once called the Texans but now reside in Kansas City. And the teams will wear throwbacks

Sunday Ticket and the NFL re-upped with DirecTV through 2014. I love my Sunday Ticket. It's one of the joys of my life. (That's kind of sad)
