Many people around the NFL were surprised on Monday night when Dolphins running back Arian Foster announced his retirement from the NFL at the age of 30. It shouldn’t be a surprise. ¬†Foster was nowhere near the player he was in 2010 and 2011. Foster just didn’t have it physically and you can see it from the first moment he stepped on the field with the Dolphins. He just wasn’t…


Dak Prescott is the Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. PERIOD!

October 20, 2016

I wish that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would just come out and say it. I wish that he would just admit that Dak Prescott is the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys moving forward. Prescott has earned the job and while I get that it is not fair to Wally Pipp Tony Romo, it is the right move for the Dallas Cowboys now and for the future. Romo has given his…


How is Charlie Strong on the Hot Seat But Brian Kelly Isn’t?

October 12, 2016

I am a little confused these days. I am trying to figure out how Texas coach Charlie Strong is on the hot season but Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly isn’t. After all, didn’t Texas beat Notre Dame to start the season? You can’t tell me that expectations are higher at Notre Dame than they are at Texas because that is simply not true. The fans base and alumni at both…


It’s Time Odell Beckham Jr. Started Acting Like a Man

October 4, 2016

The Minnesota Vikings beat the New York Giants 24-10 last night to improve to 4-0 on the season but that’s not what we are talking about this morning. Instead, most of the media attention once again centers around the antics of Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. who finished with 3 catches for 23 yards and acted like a complete tool. Beckham was out of control last night. He had…


The Vikings Don’t Stand a Chance Without Adrian Peterson

September 21, 2016

The Minnesota Vikings announced today that running back Adrian Peterson is going to have surgery on his torn meniscus and could miss several months as a result of the procedure. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer did not rule him out for the season but by all accounts, Peterson’s season is over. Peterson’s injury is a crushing blow to a Vikings team that expected to contend for a Super Bowl this season….


The Vikings Had to Overpay for Sam Bradford

September 4, 2016

The Minnesota Vikings found out yesterday that the cost of doing business in the NFL can be costly.  After losing quarterback Teddy Bridgewater last week to a season ending knee injury, the Vikings traded a 2017 first round pick and a 2018 fourth round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for Sam Bradford. Bradford signed a two year extension with the Eagles this off-season to be the place holder while Carson…


The Cowboys Don’t Owe Tony Romo a Thing

August 29, 2016

Tony Romo is hurt again and the prevailing thought nationally is that the Cowboys season is already over. That’s hogwash as far as I’m concerned. Contrary to popular belief, the Cowboys season is not over. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has shown that he is more than capable of leading the Cowboys the first six to ten weeks while Romo is out.  Why do I have so much confidence in Prescott…


Colin Kaepernick Proved This Weekend That He Doesn’t Get It

August 28, 2016

I can’t say I’m surprised that Colin Kaepernick refused to stand up for the national anthem the other night against the Packers. It’s par for the course for a guy who is immature and has a lot of growing up to do.  Kaepernick has been a major league bust since the 49ers rewarded him with a $114 million dollar extension in 2014. He has not lived up to the contract…


I Can’t Figure Out Why The NFL Reduced Le’Veon Bell’s Suspension?

August 20, 2016

The NFL suspended Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell for three games yesterday for failing to comply with the league’s drug testing policy. Bell was originally suspended for four games but the NFLPA negotiated to reduced the suspension to three . Why did the NFL reduce the suspension? Who knows? Your guess is as good as mine. When it comes to discipline, the NFL is all over the map. Giants…


Business Is About to Pick Up Between Goodell and the PED Three

August 18, 2016

It appears all of the players linked in the Al Jazeera America story that aired earlier this year are going to interview with NFL investigators. James Harrison, Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers are going to meet with league officials in the next week to clear their names. The only one who hasn’t confirmed he’s meeting with league officials is free agent outside linebacker Mike Neal. Let the witch hunt begin….
