What to Expect on Super Sunday

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Feb 1, 2014

... the end of Peyton's career on Sunday and the more-than-solid beginning of Russell Wilson's. But we'll also see the evolution of the quarterback position and how it's changed over the years, as Wilson will run and buy time for his receivers while Peyton will remind us that Omaha possibly needs an NFL team as he'll stay in the pocket and try to surgically dissect the Seattle defense.

The one thing both have in common is preparation. While most people know extensively about Peyton's preparation for a game, Wilson is no different. For the five-plus hour flight from Seattle to Newark... (more)

Raiders, Allen Ready to 'Rock and Roll' in 2014

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Jan 10, 2014

"We're ready to rock and roll."

Mark Davis' statement in a phone interview with ESPN.com Tuesday night confirming that Dennis Allen will not be fired and remain the team's head coach for a third season in 2014 could be the theme for the Silver and Black in 2014.

"We met this evening at the Raider facility, and the meeting went really well," Davis said to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez. "We talked about a lot of things, from personnel issues to the coaches to a review of the past season to the draft and our needs for next season.

Although rumor had it that Davis would let go of Allen... (more)

Not So Incognito

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Nov 6, 2013

...

This morning, a transcript of one of the voicemails Incognito left to Martin was released and in it, Incognito called him a half n-word, along with threatening to kill him and slap his “real” mother.

Incognito also threatened ESPN’s Adam Schefter along with several other NFL analysts, threatening Schefter to clear his name and to fight him, using the hashtag: #BringIt.

At least Martin isn’t the only one here feeling the “Wrath of Richard.”

Although the bullying is at the forefront of this entire situation, Incognito, if he pisses more people off, ... (more)

2012 NFL Year Kicks Off On a Suddenly Somber Note

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Aug 6, 2012

The NFL's Hall of Fame weekend usually signals the true countdown until the kickoff of the season.

This year's much-anticipated Hall of Fame weekend saw the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio induct six new members of it's prestigious Hall of Fame on Saturday night, leading up to the usually fun-to-watch Hall of Fame game Sunday.

However, despite the, also much-anticipated, Hall of Fame game between the post-bounty scandal New Orleans Saints and the Arizona Cardinals, the NFL suffered a tragic loss as news spread about the sudden discovery of the death of Garrett Reid,... (more)

Desperate Bears: Favre is just a phone call away

By SanityCheck2, published on Dec 8, 2011

...injury had many in the Bears front office scrambling for tee times and hotel reservations in January as playoff hopes dimmed. Then someone remembered Brett Favre was “available” and at about this same time, Donovan McNabb, another aging Viking cast off was released creating the very first NFL quarterback controversy involving a team that had no quarterback… except for Caleb.

Analysts at ESPN which is as generous as anyone should ever be to Michael Wilbon, claim that Favre isn’t a shoe-in for the job. Several sources in the Bear’s Organization and apparently Favre’s... (more)

Ray Lewis American Academy of Neurology's Man of the Year

By SanityCheck2, published on Nov 15, 2011

...speaking off the record and clearly fearing for the safety of his family, stated that Ray’s deliberate cheap shots have caused more head injuries than the revocation of Florida’s Motorcycle helmet laws.

Lewis who is not half the player he once was is still feared by most in the NFL including Baltimore Raven’s management. Apparently trade rumors swirled around Ray in 2010 but were quickly dispelled when Ray mentioned he knew where Raven’s General manager Ozzie Newsome lived. Not that any team in the league would have actually traded FOR Ray as Ray has all the charm of a ... (more)

Respect

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 29, 2011

... though, he has played very well this season. He has come back from injury, broken noses, and fighting through the division to come out on top. He will now take one of the most storied franchises in football history into the Super Bowl yet again. He will have a chance to join the elite ranks of NFL QBs with multiple Super Bowl rings. If he leads his team to a big victory he will be mentioned in the same breath as Brady and approaching Bradshaw. But will he be respected? Will he get the same fan adulation and media coverage as his counterparts? I don't think so.

In the NFL, just... (more)

NFL Championship Games Thoughts

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 29, 2011

I have had the flu for the past few days and have spent much of that time in bed sick. I did drag myself out of bed for part of the championship games on Sunday but from what little I saw, I missed little. The Packers and the Steelers won but neither team played to their potential while the Jets and Bears played exactly to their potential.

The Packers had their game well in hand as Jay Cutler exhibited the characteristic he is most known for and why he is so disliked by players and fans - narcissism. Cutler is all about me - not the team. He is not a leader. He is in fact a loser.... (more)

Follow The Money

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 24, 2011

It used to be that college football coaches were always looking to move up to the NFL. For the exposure, for the money, for the chance to be in the pros. That's not so much the way it is anymore. More and more NFL coaches are moving to the college football ranks and they are not taking that big of a pay cut to do so. In fact, some of them are getting paid MORE to move to college. College football is awash in money and more and more NFL coaches are cashing in.

Just this college football offseason several NFL coaches have made the move to the college ranks. Greg Mattison of the Ravens... (more)

AFC Championship Predictions

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 20, 2011

The AFC matchup this weekend is a rematch of the same two teams on December 19. On that day, the Jets came out on top 22 to 17. In that game, there were a lot of things that will have an effect in the upcoming game as well. I don't look for the same game, but I do look for a close final score.

The Jets are coming off a huge win over the Patriots. One in which they talked trash relentlessly in the lead up to the game. They took some new defensive schemes into the game and had the Patriots offense confused from the start. I look for them to do the same defensive things versus the... (more)
