Why Drew Brees’ Consecutive Games Record is Overrated

Kudos to Brees on a terrific accomplishment
This isn’t an entire post dedicated to slamming Drew Brees or the Saints – he should be recognized for what he accomplished Sunday night in New Orleans. Breaking a record that’s more than 50 yrs old is an achievement no matter how you look at it.
48 straight games w/ a touchdown pass… Let that sink in for a minute – 3 full years of at least 1 TD in each game. Brees passes Johnny Unitas for the NFL record in most consecutive games with …

New NFL Kickoff Rule Not Well Received

After the 2010 NFL season, league officials decided that kick offs were too dangerous. Too many athletes were getting up to full speed and running headlong into each other. Football is the American sport that showcases some of the most elite athletes on the planet, and kickoffs are an opportunity for fans to see this prowess exercised to its full capacity.
The ball is kicked and the returner gets it deep near his own endzone, and he has to decide if he should run it out and risk not making it …

Monday Night Football Shocker; Jaguars Upset Ravens

Tonight’s Monday Night Football game on ESPN was another showcase of just how strange the NFL can be at times.
Most sports betting sites had the Baltimore Ravens favored by at least 7 1/2 points (some 10 pts). The Ravens featured a high-profile offense – I think so at least – and a great defense that can (could?) hold it’s own against any team in the NFL. The Jacksonville Jaguars come in with a rookie quarterback in Blaine Gabbert at 0-5 on the season.
Picking Baltimore to win was a no-brainer.
Jacksonville Defense …

Aaron Rodgers

One of the most in demand football jerseys this year is the Aaron Rodgers jersey.  It shouldn’t surprise anyone, being that he won that little game known as the Super Bowl last season, leading his Green Bay Packers over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Aaron Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks in the game of football, and by the time his career is over, barring injury, he could go down as one of the greatest.

The statistics don’t lie.  Rodgers threw for just under 4000 yards in 2010 in …

8 Tactics for Surviving a Career Ending Sports Scandal

Pete Rose just spent his 70th birthday still blacklisted from baseball. As yet another milestone for one of baseball’s most storied, infamous player-coaches comes to pass, the debate about Rose’s past and future with Major League Baseball will once again fill the sports talk airways and interwebs. From gambling and steroids to sex and violence, throughout the last 20 years since Rose’s problems surfaced we have witnessed many athletes fall victim to their own self-made scandals, and yet just as many are able to walk away scot-free.
Had he played his …

2011 AFC Championship Preview – Top Selling Jerseys

This isn’t your typical football preview post, because there are enough of those out there for you to read, from people well more versed in the X’s & O’s of football than myself. Rather than focus on the game strategies, I wanted to help you understand who the fans think are the top players on the respective teams left in the AFC Championship game, to be played this Sunday.

[20 Jan 2011 | Comments Off on Tom Brady Foot Surgery Imminent After Stunning Loss to NY Jets | 82 views]

Quarterback Tom Brady will have surgery on his right foot as early as Monday to repair a “stress fracture” that he’s had for over 2 months. Despite leading the New England Patriots to a 14-2 record, a playoff bye & likely an NFL MVP award, Brady has reportedly been playing w/ the injury, but the time has come to get it fixed.
Brady’s foot injury first was listed on the injury report after the Patriots’ 34-14 loss at Cleveland on Nov. 7, New England’s final regular-season loss. He missed six practices …

NFL Releases Top Jerseys Sales Counts for 2010

NFLShop.com and the NFL announced the most popular football jerseys of the year (Apr 1 – Oct 31) recently and there are some interesting takeaways from the list. The most frequently purchased jerseys are essentially post-draft sales counts, but the draft started on 4/22 so there is some brief overlap and/or carryover from the Super Bowl & NFL playoffs most likely. Its clear, however, that the NFL Draft has had a large impact on sales as you’ll clearly see w/ the #1 overall player.

[14 Sep 2010 | Comments Off on New York Jets in for Long Season with Mark Sanchez at QB | 87 views]

As if last year wasn’t a good enough indicator of how bad Mark Sanchez is at quarterback in New York, the former USC stand-out showcased his great hot-dog eating skills last night… oh wait, that was last year. So what exactly did Sanchez do on Monday Night Football w/ his team trying to make a statement vs. the Baltimore Ravens?
Try 74 total passing yards.
Not in a quarter or a half, in the entire game – minus Ed Reed on the Ravens defense btw. The total is 2nd to last for week 1 …

Adrian Peterson Workout Plan – Diet, Muscle & Fitness Training

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was the clear choice for NFC Offensive Rookie of the year in 2007. With his superhuman like abilities, Peterson set the league mark for rushing in a game (296 yards) and also had an impressive 224-yard game against the Chicago Bears.
In an interview with Men’s Fitness, Peterson stated “I’m around 218 lbs right now. I want to keep my body lean, but I’d like to add a couple more pounds of muscle. If I get my weight steady around 222 lbs, something like that, …

2010 NFL Season Preview

With the NFL season kicking off Thursday, I figured what better time than now to do a quick preview of what might be to come. For all you fantasy football geeks (myself included), the season brings w/ it more than just the games themselves – it’s your time to shine & dominate your league.

[1 Sep 2010 | Comments Off on Honeymoon Over in Glendale – Matt Leinart Soon to be Ex-Cardinal | 63 views]

Much maligned quarterback Matt Leinart could be spending his last days as a member of the Arizona Cardinals football team according to Jay Glazer, who says the Cardinals’ front office is actively seeking a trade. Parting with Leinart would bring an end to an (un) storybook romance between Leinart and head coach, Ken Whisenhunt.
Nearly from the day Whisenhunt took over as head coach of the Cardinals, it seems Leinart has been in the dog house. Despite some solid performances over the past few years and the fact that future Hall of Famer’ Kurt Warner …

Terrell Owens Joins Cincinnati Bengals- Will Wear #81

The Cincinnati Bengals welcome a new wide receiver to join Chad Ochocinco (Johnson) and give Carson Palmer a viable second option in the passing attack – former Bills player Terrell Owens (#81). The Bengals are expected to announce the official signing of Owens today.
After searching and getting denied by as many as 4-5 other teams already this off-season, Terrell Owens finally landed with a team. He will reportedly be paid about $2 million in salary with some other incentives kicking in if he hits certain milestones throughout the 2010-11 NFL …

The NFL left us this week w/ no shortage of interesting stories and bylines from what was really a great weekend for football fans.  Ranging from record setting outings, quarterbacks feuding w/ their coaches or a head coach pulling one of the most boneheaded plays in recent history, the NFL is definitely the hottest discussion in sports this week – Tiger Woods’ indiscretions seem like a thing of the past already.
