    This Day In Sports History (December 23rd) — Immaculate Reception

    It was on this day in 1972 that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders played in the AFC Divisional playoff game at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  The game is most remembered for the “Immaculate Reception” made by Steelers running back Franco Harris. The play occurred when the Steelers faced a fourth-and-10 from their […]

    Peyton Manning Adds Single-Season TD Record to His Curriculum Vitae (GIFs)

    You know, this Peyton Manning guy is kind of good. Sure, he’s got some critics. Some, for example, may knock him because he only has one Super Bowl ring. Others, meanwhile, have said Peyton is a dome quarterback who can’t play outdoors under adverse weather conditions. Of course, there’s nothing anyone can do to refute […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/22/2013 — Peyton Manning

    Peyton Manning‘s numbers against the Houston Texans were pretty impressive, as he passed for 400 yards and four touchdowns.  But this “Stat Line of the Night” is about more than just what Manning did this past Sunday.  It’s about what Manning has done throughout the entire 2013 NFL season, and all that he’s done is […]

    NFL Players Share Their Favorite Celebration Dancers

    It seems like every week we see several NFL players performing several different touchdown celebrations.  Some are obviously better than others, but which is the best? Pepsi was wondering the same thing, so they went to the source and asked the players themselves who they think has the best touchdown celebration in the league.  You […]

    NFL Quarterbacks Conversation on Facebook: Week 15 Round-Up

    In a week when the Green Bay Packers’ improbable comeback against the Dallas Cowboys—from down 26-3 at the half—stole the spotlight, it only makes sense that the quarterback who made it all happen, Matt Flynn, starts off this week’s edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Conversation on Facebook, brought to us via ProFootballMock (check them out […]

    Seven-Year-Old Bengals Fan Writes Letter to Injured Punter Kevin Huber

    Let this be a warning to you, Terence Garvin:  Seven-year-old Nicholas Andrew Johnson is a Cincinnati Bengals and Bearcats fan, and he doesn’t appreciate the illegal hit you laid on former Bearcats and current Bengals punter Kevin Huber during Sunday night’s game. In fact, he disapproves so much that the little guy actually hopes you lose your […]

  • 23 Times Tom Brady Looked Like a Complete Idiot

    23 Times Tom Brady Looked Like a Complete Idiot

    I don’t hate Tom Brady. A lot of people do, and that’s fine, but I don’t. Not even in a fun, sports-hate kind of way. I actually like watching him play, and despite the fact that I do hate Bill Belichick, I even secretly root for the Patriots to win sometimes. However, despite my respect for Brady, […]

    This video of a father training his five-year-old son for a future in football by making him run alongside his moving vehicle was released on WorldStarHipHop earlier today, and it already has 454,276 views as of this writing (at 4:30 pm ET on December 17th).  As a result, I’ll simply assume that child protective services […]

    Stat Line of the Night – 12/16/2013 – Justin Tucker

    If the Baltimore Ravens had to name their team’s MVP for the season today, who would it be?  Does Torrey Smith get the honors?  Maybe Daryl Smith?… …Or how about Justin Tucker?  After last night’s performance against the Detroit Lions, picking a field-goal kicker as the team’s MVP may not be such a bad idea […]
