Bruce Carter Eats a Ton of McDonald’s

Former North Carolina linebacker Bruce Carter is a physical monster.  The 238-pound wrecking ball runs a 4.39 in the 40 and can bench press 440 pounds.  That alone could win him the title of biggest freak in the nation, but the UNC records Carter holds with a 40.5-inch vertical and 374 power clear were enough…Read More

Prince Amukamara Fell in Draft Because He Is Nigerian? Unlikely

Prince Amukamara slipped to the 19th spot in the NFL draft before the New York Giants finally picked him up. Amukamara was widely considered to be the second-best cornerback in the draft, rating just behind Patrick Peterson who went fifth overall to the Cardinals. Though no other cornerback was drafted between the two, 13 other…Read More

Jim Harbaugh Betting on Alex Smith to Start at Quarterback for 49ers

Here I was thinking Jim Harbaugh was some sort of genius coach only to find out he’s planning on having Alex Smith back as his starting quarterback this season. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Harbaugh gave Alex Smith the team’s playbook to prepare for the upcoming season even though he is a free agent….Read More

Rex Ryan Believes Jets Would Have Beaten Packers in the Super Bowl

The mouth of Rex Ryan has roared once again (insert foot here). We already knew from his harsh comments about Kerry Rhodes that Rex doesn’t hold back in his new book Play Like You Mean It, but even this wasn’t expected. Bob Wolfley at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel shared a clip from Rex’s book where he…Read More

John Beck Could be Washington Redskins’ Starting Quarterback

With Donovan McNabb set to leave the organization and Rex Grossman a free agent, the Washington Redskins do not have a clearcut starter at quarterback. Many analysts pegged them as a team interested in drafting a quarterback, but they completely ignored the position despite having 12 picks. It’s quite possible that the Redskins didn’t like…Read More

Ryan Mallett an Excellent Value Pick for the Patriots

Four quarterbacks were taken in the first round of the NFL draft, two more went in the second round, and perhaps the strongest armed QB of them all lasted into the third. It wasn’t until the 74th overall pick that Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett was finally selected, and it was by the team that already…Read More

Jake Locker, Christian Ponder Were Reaches for Titans and Vikings

James Carpenter going 25th overall to Seattle may have been a shocker, and the bounty the Falcons paid to move up and select Julio Jones was surprising, but nothing was more stunning than seeing Jake Locker and Christian Ponder go eighth and 12th respectively. I figured Locker would sneak into the back end of the…Read More

Julio Jones Is Good, but Atlanta Falcons Traded Way Too Much

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft was filled with surprises, ranging from Jake Locker going 8th overall to James Carpenter getting picked by the Seahawks at 25. While fans were shocked left and right, one move that stood out to me for its outrageousness was Atlanta’s decision to trade five draft picks for…Read More
