DeSean Jackson Would Look Great in Jets Green

DeSean Jackson Would Look Great in Jets Green

Come fly the friendly skies. News is out today that the Philadelphia Eagles are listening to offers for receiver DeSean Jackson. We know D-Jax already looks good in green, so why not the Jets? Like a lot of other Gang Green faithful, I’ve been waffling during this free agent binge period. I want to believe […]

How About Taking a Stand on Ray Rice...and Cutting Him?

How About Taking a Stand on Ray Rice…and Cutting Him?

Innocent until proven guilty. Yes, I know. Sure. And, alright, perhaps what’s to come in this post ┬áis not well thought out…or fundamentally sound logic. I don’t give a f&*!. Enough is enough. Plus, I’ve got a blog, so I am free to spout my opinion regardless of where it falls or does not on […]

Mr. Derrick Brooks heading to the Hall

In honor of Derrick Brooks’s election the Pro Football Hall of Fame… The inarguable best Derrick Brooks commercial ever made.

10 Reasons a victorious Peyton Manning should ride off into the sunset

10 Reasons a victorious Peyton Manning should ride off into the sunset

Peyton Manning will step onto the Super stage Sunday for the third time in his Hall of Fame career. While he’s declined to talk much about it, the much more interesting story for me is what Peyton will do if he leads the Broncos to a championship at MetLife Stadium. I’ve never known what it’s […]

Derrick Coleman and Duracell send hearing-impaired super-fans to the Super Bowl

Derrick Coleman and Duracell send hearing-impaired super-fans to the Super Bowl

More cool stories from the Super Bowl. The ones that have not a whole lot to do with the action that will take place on the field on Sunday. Derrick Coleman is a fullback for the Seattle Seahawks. If you’ve been paying attention, you know Coleman is the first legally deaf offensive player in the […]

Are Knowshon Moreno tears a sure bet during national anthem? Oh no you didn't...

Are Knowshon Moreno tears a sure bet during national anthem? Oh no you didn’t…

Knowshon Moreno’s tears (technically tear ducts?) are famous. When you cry a river like the Denver Broncos running back did in front of a national TV audience, isn’t the cover of Sports Illustrated the next logical stop? Truth be told. the story behind those tears is a good one. It’s about reflection. It’s about the […]

Forget the Interviews, Marshawn Lynch is here "just for the action"

Forget the Interviews, Marshawn Lynch is here “just for the action”

Seriously, are there many more colorful NFL characters than Marshawn Lynch? The man we knew personally as “Beast Mode” before many others had any idea what the hell he was talking about, is here in town for Sunday’s Super Bowl. He wasn’t too keen on making the rounds and yucking it up for the cameras […]

Denver Broncos' Mike Adams Planning "Walkoff" Super Bowl Win

Denver Broncos’ Mike Adams Planning “Walkoff” Super Bowl Win

Denver Broncos safety Mike Adams hasn’t had the easiest road to the NFL. He was an undrafted rookie out of the University of Delaware. During his nine-year career he’s been solid, not spectacular. He’s spent time with three different teams and always been productive, even if a starting job has always been a battle, never […]

VIDEO: Phish and the Seattle Seahawks come together for WIL-son

VIDEO: Phish and the Seattle Seahawks come together for WIL-son

As football fans, we can’t enough of Russell Wilson. From draft day to his rookie season to another stellar 2014 campaign, this guy’s narrative is just incredibly compelling — making him an increasingly rare thing in modern sports — the humble, extraordinarily likable superstar. Things like this only validate what might otherwise seem to be […]

MUST SEE VIDEO: Fighting, Flying ‘Bama Mom Throws Down with Sooners Fans

Oh, Internet. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. For those of you in need of a Friday treat, just check out the video below. It’s perhaps the best use of Miley Cyrus’s abused and overused “Wrecking Ball” maybe ever? Yes, maybe ever. We don’t have the back story here, but from […]

A Reason for 2014 Jets Optimism: Money to Play With

A Reason for 2014 Jets Optimism: Money to Play With

I am a John Idzik fan. I liken him, and my confidence in him, a bit to Sandy Alderson (although the rope grows significantly shorter with the latter after this season). Idzik is a very smart man. Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Dartmouth. A masters degree from Duke. A football man from […]

Loving the Idea of Lovie in Tampa

Loving the Idea of Lovie in Tampa

Nobody ever knows how things will turn out. But, for the record, I love the Lovie Smith hire for Tampa Bay. Some things are announced and you just think to yourself: “Yup, that one makes sense. That could work.” That sentiment was never widely embraced when Greg Schiano came to town, and it only got […]
