Roger Goodell Thinks There is a Lot of Interest in the Pro Bowl This Year

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Since he took over as Commissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell has done a number of very good things for the league. In fact, the NFL is more popular than ever. However, one thing that Goodell still has not been able to figure out is what to do about the ...

Ben Gordon: “We have good enough talent to make the playoffs”

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Last season was a disappointing year in the Motor City for the Detroit Pistons. After a 2007-2008 season that saw Detroit win close to 60 games, last year the Pistons earned just the eighth seed in the playoffs and were sent on vacation early by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Well this ...

George Karl: “I’ve given J.R. some freedoms I probably wouldn’t give most players because of his athletic skills. And has he abused those freedoms at times? Yes. But part of that is my fault…”

The Denver Nuggets keep plodding along nicely to the playoffs. They're getting bodies back healthy, and for the first time ever it seems, Carmelo Anthony is really playing like the star that he can be on a nightly basis. There's still J.R. Smith on the roster which means you never ...

Be Careful What You Ask For

Friday, January 29th, 2010

There has been much talk recently about the Lakers wanting to trade their young star, Andrew Bynum, for the Toronto Raptors All-Star, Chris Bosh. That would definitely make the Lakers an even bigger favorite to win the NBA title this year, but that would also mean the Lakers would be ...

Sean Salisbury Finally Comes Clean

Friday, January 29th, 2010

I always enjoyed watching Sean Salisbury and John Clayton go at each other during the football season but I no longer get to see that. Salisbury no longer works at ESPN as an NFL analyst due to a childish prank he chose to do back in 2006. He was out ...

Mark Brunell has Finally Gotten to the Super Bowl, Who Cares if He is Not the Starter

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Mark Brunell once was the starting quarterback for the Jaguars and Redskins. He took the Jags two times to the AFC Championship game and got to the playoffs three times in the first four years of their existence. Yes that’s a NFL record. An amazing one at that. As a ...

Joe Horn: “Once they get past all of that guys and they realize that Joe was a big part of this and we still love him, that’s all I care about.”

When the Saints won the NFC Championship, long time running back Deuce McAllister was there to celebrate and hand over the NFC Trophy to Saints owner Tom Benson. It was a great honor to McAllister, the former Saint to be there for the biggest win in franchise history. One guy ...

Tom Cable On His Future In Oakland: “I don’t think there was ever any question. I think that was more speculation than anything else…”

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Jeez, I hadn't read too much about the situation, but just a quick perusal of how Al Davis and the Oakland Raiders have handled the coaching situation since the conclusion of the 2009 regular season screams one thing, and one thing only: 'how typical of the Raiders.' Several media reports ...

The New York Giants Expect Perry Fewell To Bring A Fresh Energy To Their Defense: “I’m an emotional kind of guy. I might chest bump a player, I might slap a player on the butt. I get hyped. That’s me, that’s my personality.”

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Sure, former interim Buffalo Bills head coach may have gotten somewhat of a bum deal from Bills owner Ralph Wilson.  As far as you or I could tell, Fewell had the Bills playing competitively and passionately while leading the once-proud franchise to a 3-4 conclusion to its 2009 season. But ...

Kyle Turley: “I’ve got a lot of anger issues I’d say…”

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Remember Kyle Turley? If you're an NFL fan you most likely do. If you don't, a quick refresher - he was a former All Pro lineman for the Saints and Rams most famous for ripping the helmet off a Jets player at the bottom of a scrum back in 2001, ...
