While the NFL has taken the week to respond to critics and the public outcry over players taking brutal helmet-to-helmet hits, defensive players have complained that they’re being unfairly targeted. Count some offensive players who believe the problem doesn’t lie solely with headhunters on defense. Both Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and Dolphins quarterback Chad…Read More
I’m stunned. Shocked, even. How could something like this be true about such a nice girl? If Brett Favre truly did sexually harass Jenn Sterger, wouldn’t we expect a wholesome young lady like her to seek the proper legal resolution and not just try to fatten up her bank account?

We had the false alarm before the season began that Brett was retiring, and then the poor start to Minnesota’s season renewed speculation. Now, between…Read More
The bye week couldn’t have come at a better time for the Indianapolis Colts. Like a lot of teams, the Colts will have two goals in mind over the next week or so: get healthy and make adjustments.
