    15 Rapping NFL Teams and Players

      I been thinking about doing this list for a couple of months now, ever since a certain Eagles wide receiver dropped a new single featuring Snoop Dogg.

    Stat Line of the Night — 9/9/2013 — LeSean McCoy

    LeSean McCoy‘s name may appear in the headline, but there are a few Eagles players who deserve consideration for “The Stat Line of the Night,” thanks to the implementation of Chip Kelly‘s up-tempo offense. With Philly’s offense playing in hurry-up mode throughout most of the game, they were able to run 77 plays—despite having a […]

    During the offseason, the San Francisco 49ers traded a sixth-round draft pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for Anquan Boldin.  One week into the 2013 NFL regular season, it appears as though the Niners are the runaway winners of that trade. In his first game as a member of the 49ers, Boldin hauled in […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 9/5/2013 — Peyton Manning

    Entering the 2013 NFL season, Peyton Manning said he wanted to run an up-tempo offense in an attempt to maximize the number of plays he runs per game.  Many assumed that it would lead to an increase in offensive production from the Broncos quarterback, but I doubt anyone expected what they saw from the 37-year-old […]
