san-diego-chargers-season-preview

#NFLtoLA was top five trending nationally Tuesday night as the NFL approved the move of the St. Louis Rams to Los Angeles, and gave the San Diego Chargers the option to follow suit. You’re probably old enough to remember one of those teams being in L.A. and then moving out. (the Rams) If you’re too young, then you’ve read been told about it.

Turns out the Chargers actually began in L.A. and then moved out. It’s way before my time, but yes the Chargers played a season in Dodger Stadium and the USC Coliseum (1960) and then set up shop further south.

oakland-raiders-jim harbaugh

The NFL moving back to Los Angeles is one of the major consistent storylines this football season. We’ve been following it pretty closely since last spring, as it’s an extremely fluid situation. The Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams are all still moving full speed ahead towards Los Angeles.

Of the three teams, the Chargers are the closest to making it a done deal. It seems to pretty much be a fait accompli for them.

jim-haslett-london-fletcher

As we’ve said before, London Fletcher is our favorite NFL pundit. He’s quite good at what he does, and he appears each Sunday on CBS Sports Network’s “That Other Pregame Show.” With the news today that the San Diego Chargers are moving back to Los Angeles, it’s anybody’s guess who the second team will be sharing the stadium with the Chargers in Carson, California.

It will either be the St. Louis Rams or the Oakland Raiders.

2016 NFL mock draft 12-8-15

joey-bosa--ohio-state-football

This 2016 NFL mock draft order is loosely based off the order derived at SB Nation. They took current record plus strength of schedule into account. We then made a few changes based on how current injuries could impact the team and their final season record.

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.”

jon gruden chicago bears
As we reported on Saturday, some of the most visible NFL media personalities are stating publicly that a team moving to Los Angeles is a near certainty. It could happen by 2016, but most likely the deal gets done in 2017. Whether it’s the St. Louis Rams, the Oakland Raiders or the San Diego Chargers, is a question that still needs to be answered.

Randy Moss challenges Stl. Rams players to help Ferguson

randy moss

Fox Sports Analyst Randy Moss presented a challenge to the St. Louis Rams players who made the ‘hands up’ gesture in protest of a grand jury’s decision in Ferguson not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Randy Moss puts it out there: actions matter much more than gestures. True activism is what an individual does when no one is looking. It’s about being productive and contributing; not commanding attention.

michael-sam-jack-burkman

Every great story needs a villain, and the Michael Sam tale indeed has a few. The worst? Probably Jack Burkman, who you remember as the guy pushing a bill that would possibly ban openly gay players from the NFL. He’s a powerful right wing D.C. lobbyist who received a lot of publicity right after Sam came out. Today, ESPN and their reporter Josina Anderson, joins Burkman on the Michael Sam story bad guys list.

Rams Coach Jeff Fisher ripped Josina for her shoddy “reporting.”

VIDEO: Stl. Rams RB Tre Mason refuses to be rookie hazed

rams tre mason

St. Louis Rams running back Tre Mason is not down with the idea of hazing. Of course, that may not be up to him really. You know what NFL players can do. You’ve seen how brutal they can be. Tying players up to the goalposts and what not.

However, the rookie out of Auburn says he will have none of it.

Thankfully Football Saves Us From Football

Stephen A.Smith

Everything gets pushed aside for the start of NFL training camps.

Is Kevin Love getting traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Not nearly as important as a cocky, highly questionable rookie quarterback for the lowly Cleveland Browns. The size of the most recent Jose Abreu home run? Psshh.

Was it bigger than Jay Cutler’s new shaggin’ wagon?

Much like the way the commencement of baseball Spring Training fills us with a sort of revitalizing vigor every year, this version of the start of the NFL season (not to be confused with the draft or minicamp or the Hall of Fame Game or your team’s first preseason game or the third preseason game that’s like almost real football or the Thursday game of Week 1 or Sunday of Week 1 the next week) stirs up those savage desires to watch controlled violence.

Football makes everything better.
