chris johnson

Arizona Cardinals running back Chris Johnson signed a contract extension with $30 million guaranteed in 2011 when he was with the Tennessee Titans.

You have to read this frightening tale of how the smallest details in life and their coincidental timing can be a matter of life and death.

Take the NFL Draft aptitude Wonderlic test! HERE!


Ah, the mysteries of the Wonderlic Test. Pat McInally of Harvard is the only NFL Draft prospect to ever achieve a perfect score of 50 on the Wonderlic Test, the famous aptitude test administered to former college football players vying to impress NFL scouts at the Draft Scouting Combine. Boston College graduate/workout warrior/NFL bust Mike Mamula reportedly scored 49 on the Wonderlic test. Ryan Fitzpatrick, also a Harvard graduate and the Buffalo Bills starting QB, scored 48 in just nine minutes.

Former member of the New England Patriots and current Cleveland Browns tight end Benjamin Watson also scored a 48, tied with Fitzpatrick for highest among current NFL players.

Buffalo Bills: Vince Young’s last chance in the NFL?


In early July 2011, Vince Young was waived by the Tennessee Titans and promptly picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles, who agreed to a one-year contract with Young. Young played in only 6 games that season for Philadelphia, getting off to a very rough 1-2 start.

At present, Young is without a team, which seems a little preposterous at this point in his career.

When Will Philadelphia Eagles Start Mike Kafka at QB in a Game?


This week, Philadelphia Eagles superstar quarterback Michael Vick is mending from broken ribs. He stayed in the game, a season-deflating loss to the Arizona Cardinals, but he admitted to the media that his desire to play was a tad selfish and hurt the team. At 3-6, their season is over so there’s no reason to play Vick if he’s anything less than 100% this week. Vick is the franchise QB and needs to be protected. If not this week, then the final weeks of “garbage time” this NFL season is when we might see Vick rest.

The Eagles #QB2 Vince Young, has been inactive for much of the season. Meaning the emergency QB, the second year man from Northwestern Mike Kafka has slightly more playing time in 2011. His NFL debut came with a couple minutes left in the third quarter of the Eagles loss to the Atlanta Falcons in week two.

Philadelphia Eagles Fans, Here’s the Dossier on QB Mike Kafka

Last night, a neck injury to Philadelphia Eagles superstar quarterback Michael Vick forced him to leave the nationally broadcast night game at the Atlanta Falcons. The Eagles lost, and Vick’s injury was revealed to be a concussion. Who knows if he’ll be back for next week?

The Eagles #QB2 Vince Young, was not active. (Not sure when he’ll be back either) Meaning the emergency QB, the second year man from Northwestern Mike Kafka had to go in. His NFL debut came with a couple minutes left in the third quarter, and his performance drew favorable reviews.

Get ready for the most “Kafkaesque” post ever, this is what you need to know about the Chicagoan signal caller.

The 2011 Minnesota Vikings Starting Quarterback is…

There isn’t really a sense in denying the fact that the 2010 NFL season has been an apocolypse for the Minnesota Vikings. After being mere seconds away from a game winning field goal attempt in the NFC Championship Game last January, the downward spiral of the team has been swift and painful.  The explanation for the demise is so multi-faceted that it would be more productive to shove your face into your computer monitor and then spend the next 24 hours tediously putting the screen back together by hand. Instead, let’s look forward at what can be different.

(note: this is being re-run from December 5th, it’s very topical today with that whole McNabb thing)
