Jim Nantz has a mind blowing Super Bowl 50 factoid


Hello friends.

Jim Nantz, who will call the big game Sunday, offered this MVP race insight:

“As the game gets broken down a million different ways, and every possible conceivable story angle has been written before the kickoff, I want to be the first to say that if Star Lotulelei ends up the MVP, then the Super Bowl will have officially come full circle in 50 years.

Super Bowl peaked in 1991 with Buffalo Bills, Whitney Houston


Grandpa Abe Simpson may have hacked my website and penned the essay that follows. Or at least it might read that way.

Nine most overkilled Super Bowl 50 Storylines

favre-peyton-manning denver broncos season preview

The worst thing the Super Bowl ever did was add that “harrowing bye week, which no one enjoys.”

Seriously, the extraneous bye week is more outdated than All-Star Games. Because now every story line that will be beaten to death in the prelude to the big game gets double the over-promotion. It’s too bad they don’t give you any sports betting tips, at all during the incessant information overload. Those would be useful at least.

Philadelphia Eagles coaching hire ranked worst of the year


The Philadelphia Eagles completed their coaching search over the weekend, and the early returns are…pretty bad. It’s not something I think Philadelphia Eagles fans took very well; stable and reasonable lot that they are. According to rankings by ESPNPederson’s hire was the worst hire of a head coach to this point.

Carolina Panthers vs Seattle Seahawks Preview, Prediction


If you saw the Seattle Seahawks prevail over the Minnesota Vikings in the wild card round, thanks to a missed Blair Walsh field goal, then you, plus all the major online betting sites, might be tempted to think that the Seahawks are in for a long day when they take on the Carolina Panthers this Sunday in the divisional round.

Bill Cowher addresses New York Giants coaching rumors


Ever since Bill Cowher left coaching in 2006, he’s been linked to open NFL jobs every carousel. It makes sense that his name keeps popping up because he’s only 58, and still has potentially a lot of good years on the sideline left in him, if he so desires.

When he walked away in 2006, he was just 48 years old, but he had already won two AFC titles and a Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Has Lane Kiffin restored his tarnished reputation?


Lane Kiffin polarizes.

Period. Point Blank.

The internet obviously has a creepy obsession with his wife Layla Kiffin, but we’ve already discussed that enough in posts prior. Layla Kiffin is SEO gold and Lane Kiffin is probably SEO silver because calling him a polarizing figure is an understatement.

Chip Kelly wants to stay in the NFL, not return to college


Sorry Thornton Mellon (Rodney Dangerfield), but Chip Kelly is not interested in going “Back to School.” He’s apparently graduated beyond a return to the “amateur” ranks and wants to stay at the pro level. To do that, he’ll no doubt have to adopt a more decentralized power structure within his next regime.

Kelly was about as right-wing as a pharaoh in Philly, and he’ll have to be more democratic in his next gig.
