All things NFL

I can certainly respect debate about who is better at many positions in the NFL. Some of the higher profile skill positions are certainly up for rather impassioned discussions. Is it Barry, Emmitt, Jim Brown, or, now, Adrian Peterson at running back? When it comes to signal callers, the debate rages between Montana, Peyton Manning, Brady, or Elway. One position, however, that of wide receiver, is as easy of an open and shut case for the number one spot as exists in all of professional sports. Jerry Rice is clearly the greatest of all time.

Right off the bat I am going to admit that this is an opinion, and I anticipate many skeptics, but this is what makes sports amazing, the ability to debate. Randy Moss was drafted by my favorite team in 1998, when I was just five years old. Unlike some Minnesota Vikings fans, I am still a Moss supporter; in fact, he is my favorite athlete of all time. I became a Randy Moss fan when I was in 3rd grade. Randy Moss was the type of athlete you wanted to play like. From eye popping catches to More >

The greatest game ever invented, played by finely tuned athletes who know the risks inherent to the game. A sport I grew up loving and dreaming of playing as soon as I was old enough. A sport with tough guys like Dick Butkus, Jack Lambert, Lawrence Taylor, Mike Curtis, Chuck Bednarik, etc. A sport that requires the player to put their health and well being on the line with each and every snap. A sport that captivates an audience that is looking for the big play or that big, bone jarring hit. A sport that glamorizes More >

If Brett Favre was considered too old to play in the NFL, somebody should have carted George Blanda off to the nearest retirement home eight years before he even considered it. Truly a force to be reckoned with, the Canton Football Hall of Famer was known as one of the most unbelievable players in all of football. Playing in four different decades (40s-70s), “The Grand-Old Man” made four AFL all star games, five All-AFL selections, two All- Pro selections, the UPI, AP, TSN AFL MVP in 1963, League champion in 1960, 61, and 67, and a More >

What could have been. John Greenleaf Whittier coined this phrase back in 1856. Little did he know, these words would end up meaning a lot in the world of sports. The poem is about a maid who meets a judge. They fall in love but end up marrying other people, while wondering their whole lives; ”what might have been?” . Similarly, in every day sports you find these guys. Not all of them are so well known. Everyone knows Drazen Petrovic, Len Bias, Armando Galragga’s perfect game. But there are so many of these players, these More >

Much has been written about the New Orleans Saints and BountyGate. While nobody asked my opinion, I’m going to offer it. I’m here to help, free of charge!
I’m listing a checklist of items that will put the New Orleans Saints organization back together. Once they hire me to implement the changes, I’ll be sure to report back to you on the progress made.
1.) They must admit their wrongdoing.
We, as a society, are forgiving people, especially in sports. When Andy Pettitte freely stated that he participated in taking steroids and said he was sorry, people forgave him. More >
