Just when you thought it was safe to come out of your home, Oh No Romo continues its look at the 2008 NFL Season. Yes, I did take a week off from the preview. Now with the NFL Draft over, I can give a better preview. I preview three games from each week However, I am back and today I will cover weeks seven and eight.

Week 7- Oct. 19- Oct. 20

Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs- Two potentially playoff teams go at it in this midseason game. If Larry Johnson is healthy, if Brodie Croyle is good, if the Chiefs are good, this will be a good game- 1 PM ET on CBS

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys- The Tampa Defense heads to Texas Stadium to take on Tony Romo and the Cowboys. Two teams enter, one walks out- 1 PM ET on FOX

New York Giants at Pittsburgh Steelers- This is shaping up to be a great game. We have Eli Manning vs. Ben Roethlisberger, Willie Parker vs. *Insert Giants Running Back Here*, Plaxico Burress vs. His Former Team. This is a potential game of the week. I'm giddy just thinking about it- 4:15 PM ET on FOX

The Mondays: Back in Business

Happy Monday to everyone out there in happy land!

Report: Titans and Cowboys close to trade with Pacman- Adam Schefter of the NFL Network has reported that the trade talks between Dallas and Tennessee are back on again. Schefter has reported from a source that the two sides are "considerably closer" to making a trade that would send suspended Titans cornerback to Dallas.

The deal could go down as early as Tuesday, which is expected to be the time that Jones applies for reinstatement into the NFL. It's too soon to tell if this trade will be good for the Cowboys, considering that Jones hasn't played since the 2006 season. This would be a good second chance for Jones-

Shockey staying put in New York- Despite numerous rumors about the Giants possibly trading tight end Jeremy Shockey, the former U player seems to be staying put for now. Shockey is currently at home in Miami working out for the upcoming season. This is nothing new for Shockey, as he has done this every year since he's been in New York.

The Giants don't expect to see Shockey until some time in June when mini-camp starts. Unless things take a turn for the worse between Shockey and the organization, expect the tight end to be in mini-camp- New York Post

Naming rights for Cowboys new stadium still up in the air, The Oh No Romo Stadium still has hope- The Cowboys are talking with a few major companies in regards to the new stadium opening up in 2009 in Arlington. The leading candidate right now is AT&T, who is currently the official sponsor for the Cotton Bowl. Expect this deal to be huge!- Dallas Morning News

Giordano stays in Indianapolis- On Saturday, the Colts re-signed restricted free agent safety Matt Giordano to a one-year deal. Details weren't released as to how much the contract was worth. In 12 games last season, Giordano had 15 tackles and two interceptions, one of them an 83-yarder for a touchdown- Indianapolis Star

Sticking with the trend, Wilson stays in Detroit- The Lions re-signed restricted free agent cornerback Stanley Wilson to a one-year contract. Terms of the contract were not released. Wilson had 29 tackles in ten games for the 2007 season.

The Lions also signed punter Paul Ernster to a one-year contract and released cornerback Patrick Body- Detroit Free Press

Interesting profile on ESPN's Todd McShay- Boston Globe

Charley Casserly? A professor at George Mason?- New York Times

That's all I have for now. Enjoy your Monday everybody

Weekend Edition: Gumbel out at NFL Network

Happy Saturday to all!

Bryant Gumbel leaves the NFL Network, editor hopes he stars with brother in Gumbel 2 Gumble: Beach Justice- This is a big story that has been making the rounds. I first heard the story break on my favorite football site, Pro Football Talk. No doubt, he will be missed (not)!- Pro Football Talk

Packers Tauscher: Ready to move on- With all the talks about former Packers quarterback Brett Favre possibly returning, Mark Tauscher cleared the air Thursday night stating that the team was ready to move on with Rodgers at quarterback. Quote from article:

"I'm sure he loves playing, (but) he's made his decision and we as a
football team are ready to move forward," right tackle Mark Tauscher said
Thursday night at the Lee Remmel Sports Awards Banquet. "We're not going to
worry about all those speculations. We respect Brett. He was a great teammate.
But this is Aaron Rodgers' team right now."- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Chiefs pick up Sams- Specialist BJ Sams has a new home and it's in Kansas City. The former Raven signed a one year contract with the Chiefs on Thursday. The Chiefs needed a new specialist after not re-signing Eddie Drummond to a new deal- Kansas City Star

Kearse spending new time with old family- Jevon Kearse is back in Tennessee and is now working out with the Titans this time around. Kearse has been participating in offseason conditioning programs. In his previous stint with the Titans, Kearse would spend his workout time at his home in Florida. Things look to be different for Kearse and this could be a big year for him.

That's all I have! Enjoy the weekend!

Friday Briefs: Rhodes highest paid Safety in NFL

Happy Friday to all! It's the end of the week and I am back in business, baby! It's game time!

Rhodes signs 33.5 million extension from Jets- New York safety Kerry Rhodes signed a 5-year $33.5 million dollar extension on Thursday, making him the highest paid safety in the league. In three seasons with the Jets, Rhodes has recorded 213 tackles, eight sacks and 10 interceptions- New York Times

Another Bears linebacker wanting money situation???- The Bears are $16 million under the salary cap and Brian Urlacher wants a new contract. Urlacher didn't show up for the start of voluntary work outs. He's making close to $4 million this season (just like last season) and he is signed through 2011. A training camp holdout seems unlikely. This is certainly not the last you'll hear of the Urlacher contract situation- Chicago Tribune

Hobson signs with Patriots- Former Jet linebacker Victor Hobson signed a one year contract with the New England Patriots on Monday. Hobson had 48 tackles for the Jets last season- New York Daily News

Jurevicius gets staph infection several weeks after knee surgery- Get well soon, Joe!- Cleveland Plains Dealer via Pro Football Talk

Pompei: Best option is on the offensive line- Chicago Tribune
