  "Breaking records is not something you expect to do.  That's a sports thing, not a comedy or writing thing." - Louis C.K.   So, Jeff sits down and says to me, "Julio Jones had a day, huh?"  Immediately, the 300 yard club came to mind.  Who are they?  How many NFL receivers have caught balls for that much yardage in a...
The final week of September always brings the dullest slate of NFL games and story lines. The euphoria of the new season has worn off, injuries start to pile up, and random teams play each other just to fill up the schedule. Still, it's better than baseball in September. I like baseball just fine, but nothing shows how dull it...

Let's face it — if you're not a Panthers fan, then the storyline to Super Bowl 50 is all about Peyton Manning. Winning his final game and retiring with the Lombardi trophy in his hand should silence all of his critics, even with his recent postseason letdowns. He would have a more legitimate spot in the "best QB of all time"...
Proud of my man, Darren Degaetano. Originally discredited in this post on Deadspin, it turns out he was correct in his original assessment of Kelly threatening to leave the Eagles. Great job — and thank you to Deadspin for the free pub. Do you support Jeff Lurie's re-org decision? [polldaddy poll=8557926]
It's Conference Championship Weekend, and what more could we ask for? Patriots, Broncos, Cardinals, and Panthers — they've been the 4 best teams throughout the year, no question. The ultimate gift: Brady vs Manning, the final chapter. The NFL and football fans alike deserve to see this matchup. The Cards & Panthers are loaded with stand-up guys that you...
Remember the dialogue between Rocky and Paulie getting off the plane into a snowy Siberian abyss in Rocky IV? The scene was the perfect foreshadowing for what was about to unfold during the rest of the movie. I picture Belichick and Brady strolling into meetings at Gillette every day this week listening to the “Hearts on Fire” and “Dead...
Everyone has to start somewhere right?  I had the privilege of covering the first professional football game played at Harvard Stadium since the 70’s on Friday night.  The mystique of the Harvard campus is not to be understated, especially the football stadium.  Walking up to the press box you get a bit apprehensive walking around each corner in the...
  Each week Mike Angelina will share his picks on the Eagles, a game against the spread in both NFL and NCAA, a Suicide Pool Pick, a 3-team tease, as well as a fantasy player to make sure you start. Follow Mike on Twitter @MikeAngelina Eagles Pick: Last week, the Eagles went up against one of the NFL’s better defenses, and...
One would think that NFL players would get by now that unless it makes them money, the League doesn't give a shit about their personal tragedies. Last week they told DeAngelo Williams, that while they were sad his Mom died and ruined their Cancer Awareness commercial campaign, he certainly couldn't continue to wear his charity cleats and cover up the...
