This is about the never ending search for the best beer in the world. And that beer is apparently everywhere. Want me to try the beer you like or make? Great, tell me how to get it.

December 20-- Buzbee was a Chief and Skin in the same day

The Skins signed S Omar Stoutmire to take the roster spot of John Eubanks who was released with an injured toe.. Stoutmire was with the team in 2005, also was with them during training camp and played a couple of weeks early in the season when injuries plagued the defensive backfield..

DE Alex Buzbee was actually in Kansas City when the team told him they would sign him to their active roster to avoid him becoming a Chief.. Teams are allowed to sign other team's practice squad players as long as they sign them to their active roster.. The former team can match and hang onto the player, but they have to know about it.. Vinny Cerrato said earlier today on Redskins Radio that WR Shaun Bodiford told the Skins he had signed with Green Bay off the Skins practice squad earlier this year without informing them he was going back there in the first place..
Cerrato said he was eagerly trying to get a hold of Buzbee's agent when he found out Alex had left to sign a deal with Kansas City.. They got to Buzbee and his agent before Buzbee signed and the player told me today he was happy the Skins wanted to keep him because he wanted to stay in Washington..

Clinton Portis said he sees a little of himself in Vikings rookie Adrian Peterson who is averaging over 6 yards a carry for Minnesota.. Portis said he likes Peterson's "cockiness" and his running style which has been decsribed by some around here as "violent." Portis didn't get his first start in Denver until week 6, yet he ended up with over 1500 yards as a rookie.. Portis has found the running room not as prevalent this year then in the past, he said he has never questioned his abilities through two seasons of dealing with injuries and a lack of overall productivity in the rush game.. He said he doesn't read or listen to opinions of his play but that even if he isn't getting the yards n the ground, he "has a smile on his face as long as he is able to help the team with blocking."
Portis and Santana Moss were both back at practice after missing Wednesday sick..

Where will Lorenzo Alexander play next year? Gregg Williams said semi jokingly he isn't so sure D-line coach Greg Blatche will want to let the offensive coaches use Alexander as they did last off-season to check his skills on the line.. Cerrato said Alexander and T Stephon Heyer both have multi year deals as undrafted free agents so both appear like likely back-ups, and maybe in the case of Heyer, a starter at a cap friendly price..
Heyer is going to have to increase his lower body strength to better his run blocking, but overall, the team is very satisfied with his progression and he appears to be a big part of the future for this team..

Andre Carter said he wasn't sure he was finishing off his best season as a pro.. But he feels it may be his consistent.. Carter is a pro bowl alternate with 10.5 sacks, his career high is 12.. Carter said he did not feel snubbed by not being voted into the pro bowl, that "the only thing that matters to me is getting that ring."

OK men

Check this out, a site formed to ruin Tony Romo..

I'd love to see thousands of Jessica Simpson masks at Fed Ex Field for the regular season finale..

Man, do I love to hear Portis talk about blocking, almost as much as I love watching him block. he's a beast.

Bram any word on that Sean taylor video. I looked a little more into it and it is definitely NOT on the official site. Cant seem to find it anywhere. Just to refresh. I believe it was the one shown at the bills game, approximately 5 to 6 minutes in length.
