Peyton Manning NFL Career nearing the end

peyton manning

Thanks for the memories Peyton Manning. Although we know you’re not really going way, as we’ll see you in every other commercial on television. Manning is to the NFL what comedian Craig Robinson is to entertainment; they’ll shill anything and their ads run incessantly. Of course, don’t hate the player; hate the game.

I’d take those nice fat paychecks too. In terms of actually watching Peyton Manning play football though, it appears we’re nearing the end. What a great journey it has been.

Joe Flacco’s little bro backup QB at WMU; not “Elite” Yet


Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (who went down with a season ending knee injury yesterday) has a little brother who also plays quarterback. Tom Flacco, a freshman at Western Michigan University, is the WMU Broncos QB2.

Unlike Joe Flacco, Tom Flacco is a run first quarterback. He’s inserted into the game to provide more of a dual-threat/wildcat kind of option at this, the most important position in all of sports.

Greg Hardy wearing out welcome with Dallas Cowboys


Greg Hardy was given a second chance by Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys this season. Picking him up was one of the slimiest transactions made by a NFL franchise this season, and that really says something given how many morally repugnant things have occurred in Roger Goodell’s league lately.

Oh by the way, the Cowboys are 0-5 in games where Greg Hardy has played. So much for Jones’ endorsement of Hardy’s “leadership” and “winning attitude.”

Chicago Bears vs Denver Broncos: more series memories


With the Chicago Bears playing host to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, we have been revisiting memorable meetings between the two franchises.

The Bears spoiled the Broncos’ 1981 playoff chances and rudely welcomed John Elway to the NFL in 1983 and 1984.

Chicago Bears vs Denver Broncos: more memorable moments


The Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears series has produced a long line of memorable moments, and we anticipate more this Sunday.

Previously, we reminisced about the Bears’ shellacking of the Broncos in the final week of the 1981 regular season, leaving Denver’s playoff hopes on Lake Michigan’s thinnest ice.  We also revisited the Bears’ demolition of Denver and a young John Elway in the 1983 and 1984 seasons.

2016 NFL mock draft 11-17-15

nfl draft town 2016 nfl mock draft

This 2016 NFL mock draft order, #1-#10 at least, is derived from Niners Nation, the 49ers community on SB Nation. They took current record plus strength of schedule to determine the top ten.

Picks #22-#32 were based on a composite of current NFL power rankings. Team needs were sometimes, but not always taken into account. We played fast and loose with that because it’s still quite early. So many of these picks are “Best player available.”

Football is not meant to be played safely. Gargantuan athletic phenoms constantly colliding with each other creates a recipe for pain.

Latest on Dez Bryant Mess; Cowboys Just Overall Hot Garbage

Dallas Cowboys are marketed as “America’s Team,” but they’re pretty much America’s scourge right now. Signing Greg Hardy has made them America’s villains, or at least it would if the New England Patriots weren’t also so detestable. You can also have to be formidable in order to be genuinely hated and the Cowboys are still winless in five tried since they signed Hardy.

Last Sunday all the NFL talk shows were ripping Jerry Jones’ team over Hardy. This week, the melodrama was all about Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.
