What Steven Jackson listens to on Gameday. It's not the Pointer Sisters.
The Cards are set to offer Bengie Molina the assistant hitting coach job vacated by John Mabry after Mabry took the job vacated by Mark McGwire.
Awesome article on Cortland FInnegan by USA Today. "Inside the Mind of a Troublemaker". Cool nuggets from the article ...
"Here's an amazing statistic: Finnegan has been penalized only once this year. Still, plenty of on-field stuff that draws a flag these days once was commonplace, which is why many of the Chicago Bears' alumni, who were honored before the Rams-Bears game in September, made a point of praising Finnegan.
Not to him, but to Rams defensive coordinator Dave McGinnis, the Bears' linebackers coach from 1986-95.
"Hey, we like this guy. We love the way he plays," McGinniss says they told him. "And he's not even a big guy."
And then there's much respect from Lions WR Calvin Johnson to Finnegan. Said Johnson:
"It's hard to find a lot of guys who are going to play every play like it's their last, and as much as controversy as he may cause on the field, he plays hard. I've got to give it to him. He's a good player, I can't lie."
