Drew Brees Isn’t Serious About Coming Out of Retirement

drew-brees

We can’t say for certain what Drew Brees will do next with his life, but we do know this- he won’t be returning to the NFL. Amid reports that he’s out, after just one season, as an announcer with NBC Sports, Brees Tweeted an intentional misdirection about his next career move. The man who is second in NFL career passing completion percentage, touchdown passes, passing yards,  completions and attempts said he might actually return to the league.

Those who know him best though say Brees was only tweeting that in jest. The idea of Brees suiting up again is not one to be taken seriously, they claim.

Analyzing the NFL Offseason, Previewing 2022 Regular Season

The Rams won the Superbowl to end last season and eliminated the upstart Bengals, who defied the odds while knocking off the Titans and Chiefs on the road. The Rams won it all the very same year they brought Matthew Stafford over from the lowly Detroit Lions. 

Head coach Sean McVay looked like a genius. Los Angeles celebrated their first Superbowl victory since the Rams returned there from Saint Louis a few years before. It has been a busy offseason, with Deshaun Watson going to the Browns, Carson Wentz going to the Commanders, Tyreek Hill leaving Kansas City for Miami, and Russell Wilson heading to the Broncos and the AFC West. We will talk about what to expect going into this new year as we gear up for 2022.

Looking forward to the 2023 NFL Draft, there are a lot of questions as to who might be picking first. Many experts suggest the Houston Texans, while others predict the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions or even the Carolina Panthers as potential options.

With that said, let’s look at which QBs are the most notable.

Notre Dame DB Kyle Hamilton a Great Fit for Baltimore Ravens

71 of the Worst NFL Draft Cliches, Buzzwords, and Assorted Word Salad

mike-mayock

By this week, all the soundbites for every NFL draft prospect now run together into an indecipherable word salad. Actually, it all becomes gobbedly-gook well before this week, due to the over-usage of cliches. All the Draftniks do it:

Mel Kiper Jr., Todd McShay, Mike Mayock, and Jon Gruden most of all. Gruden speaks with a much higher buzz word/NFL draft catch-phrase per sentence percentage than anyone. If I sat down and watched Gruden’s “QB Camp” show again, this list would be four times as long.

Super Bowl Peaked in 1991 with Giants-Bills and Whitney Houston

scott-norwood-buffalo-bills

As Super Bowl LIV arrives, it’s time to reflect on the best of all the big games. In the early 1990s, the Buffalo Bills went to four straight Super Bowls and lost all four, but man did they help to provide one of the best Super Bowls of all time. Like Tom Petty said, “even the losers- get lucky sometimes.”

Obviously, they never did, in the end, but sometimes history is better when it’s written from the point of view of the losers. It wasn’t just the Buffalo Bills who made that Super Bowl so special. You also had the New York Giants, the American cultural landscape at that time, the political climate of January 1991, the NFL still residing in its pre-degradation period, the Super Bowl being a less hyper-corporatized entity in a not quite as crassly over-marketed state.

The Los Angeles Rams are substantially favored to win Super Bowl XLVI over the Cincinnati Bengals, and a big reason for that because they have so much depth and talent on their roster. NFL on CBS pundit Brandon Marshall discussed what makes the Rams’ receivers unit special:

“What makes this team special is they know who the guy is. Odell Beckham Jr. is the No. 1 receiver on most teams…but here he knows that ‘I need to go pull coverage.’ When your time is called, then you may get the ball. But until then, do your job. That’s what makes this unit so special.”

The Rams are favored -4.5, but the Bengals have defied the odds all season long, and into the postseason too. This big game L.A. story could easily go either way; it could have a happy or sad ending.
