Mondays and NFL Lockouts.  They're never a day at the beach.  Belive it or not, the 2011 NFL Season is scheduled to kick into swing in less than two and a half months, but that all depends of course on a new CBA.  In the midst of an offseason that forces some of us to cry our selves to sleep most nights, and another less-than-thrilling Monday, I thought an updated list of power ranking the 32 NFL cheerleader squads would help ease the pain. Everyone likes cheerleaders, and I'm sure no exception!  In this edition, everything to do with the players' performance is pushed aside.  It's all about the passion, love, skill and striking appeal the cheerleaders bring to the equation.   32. Detriot Lions [...] Continue reading → | , ,
One day soon, when the lockout actually wants to cooperate -- and you know, when we actually have a season and all to look forward to -- maybe then this Broncos vs. Raiders thing will actually matter. Maybe then,  it could actually match that of the Packers vs. Bears -- the rivalry the NFL constantly salutes, when Brett Favre is out of the picture of course. Or maybe then, it could even match that of the Patriots vs. Jets -- the rivalry that basically brings a week full of dazzling Rex Ryan quotes, and a stern Bill Belichick that seems unfazed by it all. Broncos and Raiders fans certainly do live in hope. But for [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
After a less-than-impressive cornerback class in the 2011 NFL Draft, many [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
It's been a very grueling off-season for all things NFL. There is no Brett Favre talk, no discussions of OTA's (Off-season Training Activities) and no big trades being made. Overall, it doesn't feel like football is still in the air. So I suppose all we can do is just pretend the CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) isn't an issue. I do have a quick question about both the players and the owners stance on the mess. Why can't they simply agree on the rules and just let the litigators and attorneys fight the money out in court? There should be some way to move the money to an escrow account and agree to the rules. If you both agree there should be a 16 game season, sign off on it. Move to the next agenda. Should there be a rookie cap in place? If you recall, there has always been [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , ,
The Denver Broncos finally have some blueprints down pat after four years of bludging, frustration and constant shoulder turning. Still spinning in circles from a 4-12 season in 2010, the march back to .500 now becomes one giant D.I.Y fix-up job for John Elway, John Fox and Brian Xanders. It was almost painful to watch [...] Continue reading → | ,
As the season approaches, hopefully, it is now time to better understand why the Bills will win at least four more games this season and quite possibly make the playoffs. With the top ten reasons always being used to identify how a team will or will not improve, it only seemed fitting to have the top nine reasons. Reason number 9: This season will have no uncertainties about who the starting QB will be (Ryan Fitzpatrick) and whether their starting defensive end will or will not retire (Aaron Schobel). For the [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , ,
Good cops: Tim Tebow, John Fox. Bad cops: Kyle Orton, Pat Bowlen. There's a game of good vs. bad in Denver right now, and it's intriguing to watch. Perhaps you wouldn't know it by looking at the Broncos starting roster, but beneath the surface, it's all fun and games until someone loses their job. After the draft concluded nearly a [...] Continue reading → | ,
You know, after I was able to sit down and really ponder the future of the Falcons organization and what they did on Thursday night I'm feeling better about it. I'll start from the beginning. With only 3 seasons under their belt, the Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff is a two-time GM of the Year andHead Coach Mike Smith is a two-time Coach of the Year. As a Falcons fan, I assumed I'd be buried androtting before something of that nature were to happen. So I have to say that they have earned my trust in their short tenure with the organization. Under previous regimes, I would expect poor drafts followed by even poorer seasons. So my instant anger at giving away half the 2011 draft and the first and fourthround picks in 2012 has subsided. I can think clearly now and now focus [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
When a team does something unusual, it's always interesting to me what reaction those loyal have to say. The monster trade the Falcons made with the Cleveland Browns on Thursday made for great quotes. I wanted to share some of the feelings I've encountered trolling the Atlanta Falcons message boards. Let me start with the places I have been lurking around. All of which are great resources for information on the Atlanta Falcons. I will start with my favorite place and home message board for over ten years now, the Falcons Roost. They also have a Facebook page for those Falcons fans interested in some of the latest articles and comments written about the team. There is also the official Atlanta Falcons message board. I found it to be crowded with immaturity so I stopped posting but [...] Continue reading → | , , ,
Well, I decided to wait until I calmed down and thought about this trade a little more before starting this article. As you all know by now, I was all about finding a way to draft Da'Quan Bowers. The need at defensive end is greater than any other need on the Falcons roster. So lets start with some facts. Mike Holmgren has naked pictures of Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff. Ok, maybe that's not a fact but I'm not ruling it out. I recently interviewed Michael Strahan who was advertising Vaseline for Men. I may call Michael back andask him to ship a case to [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
