We are 3 days away from welcoming the newest class of players into the NFL at the 2012 NFL Draft. Each team, after months of going over almost every player in college football, will be ready to hunker down in the war rooms with their Top-Secret Draft boards. Teams will be calling other teams, they will be calling players, they will be calling agents. Teams will be getting calls from other teams offering trades of both picks and players to get “their guy.” Players will be waiting, either at home or possibly in the green room at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, for the phone to ring and the Commissioner, Roger Goodell, to read off their name and the name of the team they will start their future with.

The Washington Redskins have spent 27 years trying to find a replacement for Joe Theismann.
Not since Theismann's career ended with a broken leg in 1985 have the Redskins had a quarterback they could reliably count on as a reliable winner for the better part of a decade. He started 113 games from 1978-85, taking Washington to two Super Bowls. He remains the franchise career...

Despite being a Washington Redskins fan, I am able to set aside my loyalties to give thanks and praise when it is deserved - even if it is to a member of a team that rivaled the Redskins for a decade. Former Philadelphia Eagle and most recently Denver Bronos safety, Brian Dawkins was a great player for 16 NFL seasons.
After suffering a serious neck injury late last season, the...
