Redskins Skip Robert Griffin III in Jersey Countdown

Just when you thought their relationship Robert Griffin III couldn’t get any stranger, the Washington Redskins found a new way to ostracize their former starting quarterback.  The Redskins have been running a series of social media posts this offseason using players’ jersey numbers to count down the days remaining until kickoff.  Nothing about the gimmick […]

Arkansas Tech Honors Late Teammate, Scores Touchdown

Sometimes things that only happen in sports movies actually do happen in real life. Earlier this summer, Arkansas Tech defensive lineman Zemaric Holt died in a pool accident at the young age of 21.  To honor their fallen teammate, the Wonder Boys (yes, that is the school’s mascot) chose to play their opening series with only […]

Judge Sarah Thomas as an NFL official, not a female NFL official

Women are making increasing inroads when it comes to the world of male-dominated sports. From Ronda Rousey being one of the best athletes in the world, period, to Dr. Jen Welter serving as a linebackers coaching intern for the Arizona Cardinals this summer, the “boys’ clubs” and “mens’ worlds” of professional sports are slowly being […]

Steelers defense is younger and faster but not better

The Pittsburgh Steelers franchise reached a turning point at Baltimore in the 2011 season opener. Fresh off their third Super Bowl appearance in six years, they were hammered 35-7 by the Ravens on a sun-splashed afternoon. Hall of Famer Warren Sapp’s words still hang in the air to this day. He said days later the Steelers were […]

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - SEPTEMBER 03: Quarterback Tim Tebow #11 of the Philadelphia Eagles warms up on the sidelines against the New York Jets in the third quarter during a pre-season game at MetLife Stadium on September 3, 2015 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. (Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images)

Tim Tebow is Not Worried about Being Cut

Tim Tebow has been here before.  After stints with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, the former Heisman trophy winner latched on with the New England Patriots during the 2013 preseason.  While his inclusion on the roster made headlines in New England, Tebow ultimately bowed out quietly when Bill Belichick released him during the […]

Will Jarryd Hayne make 49ers’ 53-man roster?

San Francisco 49ers running back Jarryd Hayne could educate NFL announcers this year. Some play-by-play guys like to use the word “scrum” when referring to a pile of bodies fighting for a loose ball. Hayne knows what a scrum really is. He’s played rugby. This year, he should be playing American football because he deserves a […]

Patriots Planned on Raising a “Brady” Banner on Opening Night

From the moment Roger Goodell announced the Patriots’ punishment for their role in the “deflategate” scandal, including a $1 million fine, two lost draft picks, and the now-reversed suspension of Tom Brady, New England fans have been adamant that the Patriots should not raise their Super Bowl XLIX championship banner on opening night unless Tom […]

Colts Fans Injured by Falling Bolts

Just days after an Atlanta Braves fan was killed after toppling from the upper deck at Turner Field, three Indianapolis Colts fans were injured last night when bolts fell from the ceiling at Lucas Oil Stadium. The incident occurred as the roof was being retracted just before halftime during the Colts’ final preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Fans […]

Nuggets Mascot Drills and Taunts Young Kid (Video)

Youth football has undergone a transformation in recent years due to the increased awareness surrounding concussions. Some parents have made the decision to keep their kids off the field, while those that do let their children play are doing so with an increased eye on safety.  While there are risks any time a player steps on the field, […]

Jim Harbaugh busts out Seahawks play card during game (photo)

Former 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh may have elected to leave the NFL for the collegiate ranks, but he still hasn’t forgotten about his old stomping grounds, apparently. The new head coach for the Michigan Wolverines showed he still has love for the NFC West in the team’s Thursday night game against the Utah Utes. […]

Utah RB hurdles Michigan defender (video)

Utah squared off against Michigan in Jim Harbaugh’s first game as the Wolverines’ head coach on Thursday night. It didn’t work out how he had hoped, though, as Utah jumped out to an early lead and held on to win, 24-17. At one point in the game, Utah RB Devontae Booker was determined to do everything […]

Jarryd Hayne flattens Chargers defender (video)

In case you didn’t already know, 49ers running back Jarryd Hayne is a former rugby player, which he made apparent in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Chargers. Hayne, who is quickly becoming a fan favorite, lowered the boom on Chargers cornerback Lowell Rose in the third quarter of the game. Check out how he […]

Judge Berman gets offered free coffee for life in Dunkin Donuts location

Life is good when you’re U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman, at least when you’re in the New England area. Berman ruled in favor of Tom Brady on Thursday and vacated his four-game suspension. As such, he’s a pretty popular guy in the Northeast. One particular Dunkin Donuts in Maine even offered him free coffee […]

Why Sarah Thomas working Giants-Patriots game is great for NFL’s future

Considering it’s a fourth preseason game, the Giants and Patriots will get a lot of attention tonight at Gillette Stadium. Sarah Thomas, the NFL’s first full-time official, will serve as a line judge. Oh yeah, Patriots fans get to greet Tom Brady fresh off his Deflategate victory. The NFL sure could use some good publicity. The […]

Can Tim Tebow beat out Matt Barkley to earn a roster spot?

Tim Tebow hasn’t played a down of regular season football since 2012, but if he beats out Matt Barkley for the Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback job, he’ll be just a Sam Bradford injury away from being a starter again. If Eagles fans aren’t scared by this possibility, they should be. Of course, the prospect of Barkley starting […]

Snoop Dogg Unhappy with Deflategate Decision (Video)

Fans are celebrating in the streets of Boston after Judge Richard M. Berman overturned the NFL’s four-game suspension of Tom Brady earlier today. However, there is no joy in Long Beach, California as famed rapper Snoop Dogg feels that the decision was unjust. Snoop took to Instagram to share his thoughts on Judge Berman’s reversal and how […]

Patriots may have bent the league rules, but NFL couldn’t prove it

Tom Brady has won four Super Bowls. Now he’s won Deflategate. Judge Richard M. Berman wiped out Brady’s four-game suspension on Thursday, and the star quarterback will take the field when the New England Patriots open the 2015 season against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sept. 10 at Gillette Stadium. We’ll never know if Brady orchestrated the deflation […]

Donald Trump Goes on the Attack Against Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Donald Trump has pulled no punches during his campaign to gain the Republican nomination in the 2016 Presidential election. While Trump’s attacks have mostly focused on his political opponents and the media, “The Donald” recently took his latest battle to court. The basketball court, that is. NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar penned his critical thoughts about […]

Iman Shumpert Will Name His Daughter Iman Shumpert Jr.

In 2015, naming your daughter “Nancy” will raise nearly as many eyebrows as going with “Apple”. Millennials aren’t known for sticking to convention and tend go with something unique when selecting the names that their children will carry with them for the rest of their lives. In a world where North West has become the norm, […]

Redskins GM’s wife accuses reporter of having affair with husband

The Redskins PR department has been working extra hard this week, and now they’re going to be working even harder. It started with their attempt to downplay how the team’s coaching staff handled the Robert Griffin III situation, and now they have a whole different beast to deal with. New general manager Scot McCloughan was […]

TV host suggests Roger Goodell should be murdered (video)

Certain TV guys will do anything to generate a reaction and drive ratings, but sometimes they take it too far. Such was the case on Wednesday night, when WEEI host Kirk Minihane provided what he thought was the best solution to the problems surrounding NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Minihane jokingly suggested that the best way […]

Eli Manning remains unfazed about poor preseason

The preseason is a fickle beast. Sometimes a poor preseason reveals major weaknesses that are exposed further during the regular season. Sometimes it means almost nothing and should be disregarded completely when looking ahead. Last year, the New York Giants were 5-0 in the preseason and finished 6-10. That’s probably why starting quarterback Eli Manning is unfazed […]
