TweetDarren McFadden was ridiculed constantly during the first two seasons of his NFL career for being compared to Adrian Peterson in college and leading up to the 2008 NFL Draft.

TweetThe NFL has to be one of the most unpredictable sports out there. How many of you thought the Philadelphia Eagles “Dream Team” would be 1-2? Who else besides NFL Scout Jayson Braddock thought that Buffalo would be 3-0? There is parody all around the league and if you aren’t a fan of the Kansas […]

TweetWe’ve seen a lot of scary hits and injuries this year that make you hold your breath. Maybe we’re just more aware of those nasty hits these days, but players keep getting stronger and faster and such injuries are inevitable in today’s game no matter how advanced the safety equipment.

TweetThe Braves are moving precariously close to missing the playoffs. At the beginning of September, the Braves were 8.5 games ahead of St. Louis for the Wild Card. Today, the Braves are just a mere 2.0 games ahead with an 8-13 record in September. Of course, questions arise as to the reason, but I’m here […]
