    Good old Rob Ryan is one of the more well-known coordinators in the NFL. It’s not because he’s some kind of defensive genius, of course. From 2004 to 2012 he served as defensive coordinator for the Raiders, Browns, and Cowboys, and only his years with the Cowboys could be described as “almost decent”—because they won […]

    NFL Quarterbacks Conversation on Facebook: Week 6 Round-up

    Week Six of the NFL season produced plenty of interesting stories, including an epic game-winning drive from Tom Brady, another record for Peyton Manning, and a surprising 6-0 start for Alex Smith. It may seem like a lot to digest in just one Facebook Convo, but that’s what the NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano is here […]

    With the Indianapolis Colts trailing the San Diego Chargers by a score of 16-9 late in the fourth quarter, Andrew Luck and the Colts offense were set up with 1st & 10 at their own nine-yard line.  They needed to drive the length of the field and score a touchdown in order to tie the […]

    The 9 Best 4th Quarter Comebacks of Tom Brady’s Hall of Fame Career

    Tom Brady is pretty good at football. On Sunday in Foxborough, after Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints took a 27-23 lead with just 2:29 left in the game, the future Hall of Fame quarterback of the New England Patriots simply marched his offense down field—70 yards in eight plays—for the game-winning touchdown with […]

    Adrian Peterson Gives Emotional Pre-Game Speech To Teammates (Video)

    As you doubtlessly know by now, the Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson recently lost his two-year-old son in a tragic act of violence. On Sunday, he made the difficult decision to go ahead and play with his teammates against the Carolina Panthers, and he made a short but effective speech to his team before the game. […]

    Today I’ve written about broken legs, torn Achilles tendons, and rugby stiff arms, but the most painful image of all is probably this one.  It features Tom Brady trying to get a measly high-five from teammate Julian Edelman and being left hanging. The animated GIF of the incident, seen below, is an emotional roller coaster, as […]

    Here’s another reminder that it isn’t just the athletes who risk injury out on the field.   The people in ancillary positions, like the team photographers, also put their tendons on the line each and every week of the NFL season. That was definitely the case with Phil Hoffmann, photographer for the Baltimore Ravens. Hoffmann […]

  • This Day In Sports History (October 14th) — Joe Namath

    This Day In Sports History (October 14th) — Joe Namath

    It was on this day in 1985 that the New York Jets retired the #12 jersey formerly worn by quarterback Joe Namath.  Namath joined Don Maynard (#13) and Joe Klecko (#73) as the only other men to have their numbers officially retired by the Jets organization. Namath spent his first twelve seasons with the Jets […]

    NFL Quarterbacks Conversation on Facebook: Week 5 Round-up

    It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and NFL quarterbacks and other players around the league have been doing their part to raise awareness on the field by wearing the color pink on their shoes, gloves, towels and pretty much anywhere else that Roger Goodell will allow them to without deeming it a uniform violation. Off the […]

    New York Giants Games Banned at New York Strip Club

    Everyone knew one of the teams that play in MetLife Stadium would be awful this year. What’s really surprising is that it’s not the Jets, but the Giants. While Geno Smith has led the Jets to an improbable 3-2 record—miraculously keeping Rex Ryan employed into Week 6—two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and the sad-sack […]

    With the Atlanta Falcons facing a 1st & 20 from their own 27 yard line with 5:35 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Jets leading by a score of 27-20, it was time for a member of the Dirty Birds to step up and make a big play on offense. That someone was Julio […]
