Saints' Tight End Benjamin Watson's Post on Ferguson Unrest Worth Reading

Saints’ Tight End Benjamin Watson’s Post on Ferguson Unrest Worth Reading

I’ve admittedly read little of the post-non-indictment Ferguson commentary. This is purposeful. I’ve found so much of what I’ve read or heard — including media, friends on various social platforms and everday conversation — to be stupid, ignorant, misinformed, uninformed or, not atypically, some unique amalgamation of all of those things. So, I choose to maintain my […]

Richard Sherman Destroys NFL with Help of Doug Baldwin Cardboard Cut Out

Richard Sherman Destroys NFL with Help of Doug Baldwin Cardboard Cut Out

Richard Sherman is a very talented football player. He is also quite an intelligent individual. Did we mention he’s outspoken too? Sometimes these dynamic forces come together in very compelling ways. Today’s “press conference” was another sterling example. Sherman shines as he and a cardboard cut out of Seahawks teammate Doug Baldwin take the stage […]

Patrick Peterson Says DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace Have "Crackhead Speed"

Patrick Peterson Says DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace Have “Crackhead Speed”

Sometimes you miss great things, if you’re not looking. Like new terms. Phrases you’ve never heard. You know, like “crackhead speed.” Not following? Well, All-Pro corner Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals can help clarify. After holding Megatron largely in check this past Sunday, Peterson appeared on The Dan Patrick Show earlier this week. The […]

Georgia Bulldogs "We Are One" is Ultimate Pump Up Video

Georgia Bulldogs “We Are One” is Ultimate Pump Up Video

This Saturday night the #15 Georgia Bulldogs take on SEC foe Auburn down in Athens, Georgia. In an emerging new tradition of today’s digital age, the Dawgs have created a pump-up video to get fans and players geared up in advance of the evening showdown. I have to say, it’s one of the best I’ve […]

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 handed 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 […]
