Sanchez recommends the chicken fingers to Nick Foles

Sanchez recommends the chicken fingers to Nick Foles

We like Mark Sanchez. For serious. Decent guy. Got a bum deal in New York. Still, not a very good NFL quarterback. That doesn’t stop him from making headlines — even as a backup signal caller in Philadelphia. Thank goodness for microphones on the field. And thank goodness for Sanchez continuing to feed whatever cravings […]

Jets fans' biggest nightmare: Thursday night in Foxboro

Jets fans’ biggest nightmare: Thursday night in Foxboro

Awwww, shucks. Figures. Brady and the Pats hitting their stride. A five-game slide for Gang Green that continually seems to find new depths in a seemingly bottomless barrel of crap. Why not have this be our Thursday night engagement? Pace is right. They DO have it out for us. The FANS. Forget about the game […]

Golden Tate is right about Jim Schwartz: total douche move

Golden Tate is right about Jim Schwartz: total douche move

Last weekend, Jim Schwartz was carried off the field by the Buffalo Bills following their 17-14 comeback win over the Detroit Lions. Schwartz served as the head coach in Detroit for five seasons, compiling a 29-51 record in the process. He was fired at the end of the 2013 season. Schwartz now plays the role […]

Tony Sparano looks to bury the past for Raiders...uses football to demonstrate

Tony Sparano looks to bury the past for Raiders…uses football to demonstrate

Tony Sparano has been handedĀ the reins of the Oakland Raiders…at least on an interim basis. The coach is ready to do anything to start to change the losing culture of the 04 silver-and-black. He is apparently starting with a metaphor. How powerful a metaphor…well, I’ll leave that up to you. You see? He’s BURYING THE […]

J-E-T-S: Just End the Season, Indeed

J-E-T-S: Just End the Season, Indeed

Six wins is a stretch goal. The Jets are that bad. I guess many of the pundits knew that going into the season. Maybe some of us fans simply got sucked into the sometimes mystical fairyland that one allows hims or herself to travel to when the record is 0-0 and there is no tarnish […]

Marcus Mariota is a top pick?

Marcus Mariota is a top pick?

Am I missing something? No, really. What gives? No offense to Mr. Mariota, but I though NFL Draft projections haven to to with professional football capacity and application of skills…or is it simply about stats that look good on a piece of paper? I’m starting to think it’s a little bit leaning towards the latter. […]

Devon Still Pep Talk Video; Her Diagnosis Made My Week

Devon Still Pep Talk Video; Her Diagnosis Made My Week

Devon Still’s story keeps getting better. In part, because he’s choosing to share it. Still is a defensive tackle with the Bengals. He’s made news for the reasons you don’t want to make news as an NFL player. His four-year old daughter Leah has/had Stage 4 cancer. The story got national attention in great part […]

FSU's #askjameis twitter party probably not such a good idea

FSU’s #askjameis twitter party probably not such a good idea

I’m consistently amazed at how dumb supposedly educated people can be. Yesterday, someone on the Florida State PR/communications team stood idly by and let an absolutely moronic idea come to life…like, in real life. The Seminoles, in an effort to “to continue to find ways to connect our fans and the players they support,” opened […]

Manning rap video sequel falls short

Manning rap video sequel falls short

If something works, you should just do it again right? Uhhh, not always. See Blues Brother 2000 for reference. DirecTV should peep the history books and learn that sequels don’t always mean “better.” Although, I guess you could argue that since I’m penning a post on this second Manning brothers rap video commercial, the marketers […]

Coach Strong Is Taking the Longhorns Out of Texas (for now)

Coach Strong Is Taking the Longhorns Out of Texas (for now)

Welcome to Strongville. In case there was any doubt, the Texas Longhorns are now coach Charlie Strong’s team. Even if he is removing those iconic ‘HornsĀ from everywhere you can see them. I’ll be straight up. I’ve long been a Charlie Strong fan for a long, long time. I’ve also spent a decent amount of time […]

Richard Sherman's Perfect Twitter Comeback to Patrick Peterson

Richard Sherman’s Perfect Twitter Comeback to Patrick Peterson

Patrick Peterson is a tremendous athlete and football player. In recognition of his skills, the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday rewarded him with a five-year contract extension worth $70M. It makes him the highest-paid corner in the NFL. Such contracts get people talking about the best corners in the league…a conversation that begins to naturally include […]

Thank Goodness for the Draft, So the Stinkin' Mocks Can End

Thank Goodness for the Draft, So the Stinkin’ Mocks Can End

Tomorrow night, Commissioner Goodell will welcome the world to Radio City Music Hall. The Houston Texans will be on the clock. The madness will begin. Thank. Friggin. G-d. Because with that declaration, it will signal the death of the far-more-insane mock draft phenomenon. It can’t come soon enough. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to […]
