Found March 15, 2012 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
The 49ers had been fighting to get a new stadium to replace drafty, MNF blackout-prone Candlestick Park for pretty much forever. Last month, the team finally got a site approved in Santa Clara for a stadium to be built by the 2014 season. So now comes the usual messy business of approving designs and dealing with cost overruns. It’s a shame they don’t have Peter King’s architect quarterbacks, Eli Manning and Andrew Luck, to take the lead on this. Anyway, people are flipping out because the cost has ballooned to $1.2 billion, with the odd side item that $50 million has been budgeted into the project for technology that doesn’t even exist yet. Makes sense, as the Niners home market includes Silicon Valley and fans are gonna need a place that accommodates the next eight generations of the iPad. But what other technological marvels could be on the way? While reports are vague on the matters, we pressed our many well-placed sources to clue us in on what’s to come. Automated clapping han...

Report: Patriots Expected to Pursue Seahawks' Defensive Lineman Red Bryant

Towards the end of Super Bowl XLVI, Eli Manning stood inside the pocket largely unpressured and nearly untouched by the Patriots' pass rush. That is certainly a void New England is looking to fill this offseason, and Belichick is reportedly looking outside the Foxboro fort for some fresh blood along the defensive line. According to a report from the Boston Herald's Ian Rappaport...

Tom Brady vs. Joe Montana vs. Peyton Manning vs. Eli Manning

2 Of The Best Ever A.B. I could sit here all day and talk about how I think Brady will go down as the best quarterback ever and how Eli Manning sucks.

(relax NY, Eli doesn’t suck) But before releasing the numbers I do have a point to make that I think is lost on many NFL fans in...
