Marcus Mariota: the next New York Jets starting QB?


marcus-mariota-2015-nfl-mock-draft

Now that Marcus Mariota has won the Heisman trophy, the Heisman trust got exactly what they wanted right now- a very inoffensive and bland personality taking home the award. From Cam Newton to Johnny Manziel to Jameis Winston, the Heisman has seen lots of controversy, off-the-field issues and polarizing figures. Now, in Marcus Mariota, they have someone as vanilla and corporate as it gets.

So now the question is, who will get to draft Marcus Mariota with the top NFL Draft pick?

2014 Chicago Bears: seven things that actually went right


Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler

Chicago Bears, way to be disappointing. The 2014 season wasn’t supposed to go like this. Chicago’s record is 5-8, and because of tiebreakers and other fancy stuff, the Bears are mathematically eliminated from postseason contention. The players will “play for pride their jobs the final three games. That is all well and good for them, but it’s also clear that losing out and getting a better draft pick is the best case scenario at this point.

The list of what went wrong this season is far too long for your attention span right now. You have checked out of this Chicago Bears season, so the only Bears related content you can enjoy at this point is something quick and to the point.

Here’s what actually went right this regular season.

Jim Haslett hilariously SHREDDED TO PIECES by London Fletcher


jim haslett

Former NFL Linebacker London Fletcher played under Coach Jim Haslett for four years.

So Fletcher knows a thing or two about what Haslett is, and what he is not. Washington is having a very rough season; this isn’t news. The Skins have had some issues everywhere, but especially defensively. Much of that obviously falls on Haslett. Yesterday on CBS Sports’ “That Other Pregame Show” Fletcher totally shredded Jim Haslett to pieces, and it was quite hilarious.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota: very likely #1 overall draft pick


marcus-mariota

Can the Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota pull a Cam Netwon? By becoming the Heisman Trophy winner next week and then become the #1 overall NFL draft pick come April?

To go with his 190.2 QB Rating, 3,470 yards and 69% completion percentage heading into the Pac 12 Championship game.

Chicago Bears players as Thanksgiving Dinner items


Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears head to Detroit for a late Thanksgiving morning tilt against the Lions. For the sake of all involved (fans, players, coaching staff), the game should end before most eat their turkey, stuffing and other traditional Turkey Day dishes. No need to ruin the appetites of those choosing to watch the fools’ gold that is the Chicago Bears.

In an attempt to have a light-hearted look at a bad Bears team, why not compare players to some of the food that will be served on Thanksgiving? This will be fun; or a complete dumpster fire, which is how most forecasted the Bears’ season back in August. Remember, there was no in between.
