A lot of talk this week about NFL player protection and favoritism and making examples. Hines Ward of the Steelers saying the NFL isn't interested in player protection. Terrell Suggs of the Ravens saying that only QBs like Brady and Manning really get protection. James Harrison of the Steelers saying that the NFL is specifically targeting him to make an example. As always in things like this, the truth resides somewhere in the murky middle.

The NFL has selectively chosen to protect only certain players. The QB, WR, and TE position to be exact. They are not concerned with running... Read More

The NCAA celebrating its 125th year of indentured servitude today announced that a comprehensive and far-reaching investigation has determined that Cam Newton, along with every other college athlete received no money for playing college football. Evidently Cam was unaware his father tried to pimp him out to Mississippi State.

More perplexing, Turns out Cam’s father Cecil is a minister, a Bishop no less of the Holy Zion Center of Deliverance, former site of the Newnan Jiffy Lube. And while it is certainly true that the Lord works in mysterious ways, churches operate on cash and 10% of... Read More

The NCAA ruled today that Auburn QB Cam Newton is now eligible to play on Saturday and to participate in the BCS National Title game if Auburn wins the SEC championship game. This comes after Newton was ruled ineligible on Tuesday for violation of amateurism rules.

Today, on appeal, the NCAA ruled that Cam Newton had no knowledge of the pay-to-play scheme that allegedly involved his father and Kenny Rogers as a representative. The NCAA further ruled that no money changed hands in the attempted scheme. Newton was ruled eligible after the NCAA said they found no evidence of his participation... Read More

Those who follow Division one college football are no doubt aware that Boise State finally lost a football game to the University of Nevada. Let there be no misunderstanding here: with two seconds left in a tie game and with a “chip shot” of a field goal for the win, whatever happened in the game up to this point is simply moot: Every coach in the country would love to be in this exact situation; Kyle Brotzman missed the kick that would have won the game.

In the College version of overtime, each team gets an opportunity to score. Boise State had another chip shot for a three point lead... Read More

It is the early evening of Thanksgiving Day and I want fervently to recline in a blissful, gluttonous stupor and watch the Jets-Bengal’s Game. Shortly before the game is to start, I discover much to my chagrin that the powers that be at the NFL have decided I am to be denied the privilege of viewing this game. While I would humbly defer to the marketing geniuses employed at the NFL, it seems rather short sighted to be in the business of providing entertainment while carefully crafting a distribution network that denies access to potential customers…. Not able to watch the game, I now have about... Read More

Atlanta Falcons - 19-1 in their home dome. 9-2 on the season. They beat the Packers by coming back at the end of the game to secure the win in less than a minute's time. A complete team with both a running and a passing attack and a defense that really stood up in this game.

New England Patriots - 9-2 and keeping pace with the Jets. Patriots are improving at every position with each week. The balls thrown are spread out amongst about 6 players. The running game is moving. The defense is improving every week and Tom Brady had a perfect passer rating on Thanksgiving.

It seems that most people want to blame Boise State's loss last night vs Nevada on the Boise State kicker. Yes, he missed 2 chip shot field goals, but he didn't lose the game. Not by himself. Losing is a team sport.

Boise State had Nevada down 24-7 at one point. They had played the game they played all year. Get a big lead early. Have the defense hold the other team down. Manage the clock. It looked as if Boise had this game well in hand. Nevada couldn't get anything going it appeared. But then it was halftime and Nevada obviously made some big adjustments. They came out and...
