You should probably never say “never” in sports, but there are some cases where the term’s use seems more than reasonable—and in some cases, it’s even necessary. That certainly applies to some of the records that have been set in various sports. After all, you can’t possibly believe some hockey player will someday come along and score 92 goals and 215 points in a single NHL season, or 894 goals and 2,857 points in their entire NHL career—especially with the way the game is played and the caliber of goalies nowadays.
Surprisingly, the aforementioned NHL records, which all belong to “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky, didn’t even make The Drop’s recently released list of “Sports Records That Will Never Be Broken.” So which records did the people at Champs feel would never be broken? Were Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hit streak, Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 undefeated record, Cal Ripken’s iron man streak, or Rickey Henderson’s 1,406 career stolen bases impressive enough to make their list?
You can find out the answers to all of these questions by checking out The Drop’s list of “Sports Records That Will Never Be Broken” here.
Week 5 of the 2014 NFL season was filled with many milestone moments, from Peyton Manning’s 500th touchdown pass, to Tom Brady surpassing 50,000 career passing yards. And that’s just the start.
Demaryius Thomas also broke the Broncos record from most receiving yards in a single game, the Cleveland Browns recorded the biggest come-from-behind victory in league history, DeMarco Murray became the first running back in 39 years to open the season with five straight 100-yard rushing games, and….well, I can go on forever, but I won’t. Rather, I’ll leave you with the latest edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation, courtesy of ProFootballMock.

Sports fans across North America will tell you that the fall season is without a doubt the most wonderful time of the year. Not only is it a time when our Saturdays and Sundays are taken over by the madness that is NCAA and NFL football, but it is also the season that is synonymous with the beginning of the NHL and NBA seasons, as well as the MLB’s World Series—which is referred to by most as “The Fall Classic.”
Because of this sudden influx of popular sporting events, it can be tough to keep track of everything that is going on in the sports world throughout the fall months. Luckily for us, the people at “The Drop,” by Champs Sports, have put together some predictions for the fall season in an effort to inform us about what is happening in sports before it even happens.
Their predictions range from the obvious (like Aaron Rodgers lighting up NFL secondaries), to the unimaginable (like the Buffalo Bills actually surprising us by being a good football team). To check out all of their sports predictions for the fall season, visit The Drop here.
The NFL and The Simpsons have been the source of two of Fox’s most popular television programs over the past couple of decades. So Bleacher Report and artist Adrien Noterdaem collaborated to do the obvious thing and mash the two together to create “The NFL Simpsonized.”
The NFL Simpsonized recreates popular players from the National Football League in The Simpsons form, and the results are pretty awesome.
Most of the pieces from the NFL Simpsonized collection are pretty standard.
There’s Peyton Manning doing one of his classic Manning Faces…
There’s Tom Brady looking handsome…
There’s Marshawn Lynch with a pack of Skittles in his hand…
And there’s even Colin Kaepernick doing his patented Kaepernicking pose…
And then, for some strange reason, there’s Jay Cutler smoking a butt…
Even though I’ve never seen it, for some reason smoking a butt on the football field seems like something that is sooooo Jay Cutler. So kudos to Bleacher Report and Adrien Noterdaem for thinking about it and applying it to their collection of The NFL Simpsonized images.
As for the rest of the images from The NFL Simpsonized, by Bleacher Report and Adrien Noterdaem, you can check them out below:
Social media has done many great things for society, but it has also come with its fair share of negative effects—one of those being the scrutiny and hateful comments that can easily be delivered from one individual to another. No one reminds us of that very fact better than Jimmy Kimmel, who enlightened us with “Mean Tweets NFL Edition” during his late night talk show last night.
In this edition of “Mean Tweets,” Kimmel enlisted the services of NFL superstars like Terrell Suggs, Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, Vernon Davis, and Clay Matthews. And in addition to those current stars, we also get to hear some mean tweets from a few former players like Terrell Owens and Keyshawn Johnson, as well as Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews.
You can see these and other NFL personalities read their own mean tweets by checking out “Mean Tweets NFL Edition” below:

We’re less than five hours away from the highly anticipated 2014 NFL Season Opener between the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and the four-time Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers.
At this point, you may find yourself scrambling to catch up on all of the offseason moves as you attempt to figure out which team is more likely to win you some cash if you bet on them tonight. Well, if that sounds like you, you’ll be pleased to hear that we have a way to save you some time: Just check out the Week One edition of the “NFL Prediction Showcase” below:
Okay, so that probably didn’t help you make a decision. In fact, it may have caused you even more confusion.
If so, I’m sorry. Here’s a better prediction for you: Seahawks 28, Packers 24.
If Marshawn Lynch has taught us anything, it’s that Skittles can be used for more than just satisfying your sweet tooth.
They can be the medium chosen by an artist for a specific work of art. They can be hurled at a football player to celebrate a touchdown. And, as we recently found out, they can be used by a Pro Bowl running back to prepare for another grueling NFL season.
Just watch how Marshawn Lynch is getting ready for the Seattle Seahawks’ upcoming title defense:
I wonder who got to eat all of those Skittles after they finished shooting this video.
