Ten Takeaways from the 2013 NFL Combine

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 1,000 times: The NFL Combine is the best mindless programming on television right now. Ok, so maybe I’ve never said that. And maybe I never even thought it until this week. But either way, it is. Really, the NFL Combine is right in every sports commentators wheelhouse, […]


Hanging with Herm Edwards   For those who were paying close attention, you may have noticed that I spent most the last week at this year’s NFLPA Bowl. The game, which is put on by the NFL to try and get a handful of college football players noticed by pro scouts held events all of last weekend, and […]


Tim Tebow and the Jets: A Match Made In Heaven

I still remember the day Rex Ryan was hired as the head coach of the New York Jets. At the time I was lost (not literally, but figuratively), living with three buddies, spending my night’s bartending to pay the bills, and passing time during the day trying to figure out any conceivable way to get […]

50 Reasons To Embrace Tim Tebow

Simply put, Tim Tebow is the most polarizing athlete of my lifetime. Despite never breaking the law, doing anything morally or ethically wrong, or hell, even winning a professional championship, people have stronger opinions on him than anything athlete I can ever remember. You either love or hate him, loathe or appreciate him. He elicits […]

Tim Tebow: The Perfectly Imperfect Quarterback

In a weird way, it seems appropriate that I’ve had so much trouble starting this column. I’d tried 100 different beginnings, and come to 100 different dead-ends. I’ve tried to be funny and serious, goofy and grim. And so far I’ve got nothing. Then again, it’s hard to blame me. I am trying to write […]


Deion Sanders Hall of Fame Speech: It Had To Do With Everything But Football

When I was a kid in the early 1990’s, the professional athlete pecking order went a little something like this: Michael Jordan was the greatest; Ken Griffey Jr. (and his backward hat) was the coolest; Mike Tyson was the scariest; Shaq was the biggest; Pete Sampras the most mysterious; and Michael Irvin the loudest, with […]


Terrelle Pryor Goes To Camp Gruden: A Running Diary

On Friday, July 1, 2011, America woke up to a sad reality: The NFL is locked out. The NBA is locked out. And Major League Baseball just…won’t…go…away. Add in a summer with no Olympics or World Cup (unless you include that cute tournament the gals are playing), and these really are tough times for sports […]


NFL Draft: A Recap Of The Entire Weekend

After covering the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday, it’s time to take a look at what happened over the weekend in Round’s 2-7. Now if you’ve never read me before, understand that I’m no draft expert. I have no qualifications to evaluate these teams and picks beyond, “I watch way too much […]


2011 NFL Draft: Picking Up The Pieces After Round One

A lot happened in last night’s draft. Here are some of my thoughts through the first 32 picks… Let’s Start By Talking About…Jake Locker?: Quick, in a straw poll, how many of you thought I’d be starting off this first round recap by talking about Jake Locker? Unless it was for something like, “Jake Locker […]

Why Cam Newton’s Shoe Contract Says More Than You Think

With the way the sports world is today, nothing slips through the cracks. There are simply too many blogs, too many radio hosts, too many Around the Horn panelists and too many know it all’s at the barber shop to ever let that happen. Only, something happened on Monday afternoon, that for once, I feel […]

Super Bowl Picks: Prop Bets, A Championship Pick and Much More

It’s Super Bowl week, and you know what that means, right? Like every reporter, journalist, blogger, radio host, ex-player, columnist and lingerie model, I need to have an opinion on the game. After all, isn't forcing our opinions on one and other until everything turns into one big blur, what Super Bowl week is all […]
