That the NFL knew about the dangerous impact concussions have on players' brains long before publicly acknowledging the link doesn't sit well with Texans safety Ed Reed.
"The business of football is shady" Reed told ESPN.com. "The business of football is very shady. The fact that they would withhold information is bad. The fact that our CBA would not want that information the fact that our older players would take money instead of getting that information is bad. The business of football NFL football is shady. Now we can't get that information anymore? It's just swept under the rug? That's bad."
A two-decades-long campaign to deny scientific research that connected brain damage to football is revealed in the book "League of Denial" written by ESPN investigative reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Steve Fainaru. Excerpts of the book appeared in ESPN The Magazine and Sports Illustrated this week.
Its release will come about six weeks af...

Matt Schaub has had a tough week.
It has nothing to do with fans calling for the benching of the Houston quarterback and burning his jerseys. He has learned to tune out that kind of negativity.
But he's unhappy with his performance last week and can't wait to get back on the field against the 49ers on Sunday to help erase the memories and get the Texans back on track.
Matt Schaub blew a game, deleted his Twitter account, and saw his jersey burned all in the same week.
Schaub knows he needs to shake off the disappointment and criticism from last week. During an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Schaub promised to cut it loose against the 49ers this week.
“I’ve been around [criticism] enough that you just tune it out. You don’t even...

Part of the fun in going to the game is getting there. You talk about the game with your buddies; you talk trash to the one guy that's a fan of the other team; you drink beer (but only if your not driving and your state has no open container laws).
So if you are going to do it you might as well do it right--right?
The proud owner of this 1975...

The last two seasons have wound up being determined by average quarterbacks who were desperate to prove they were better than their reputation. Both Joe Flacco and Eli Manning won the Super Bowl to temporarily silence their critics who had said they were nothing more than pillars of mediocrity. This year one of the quarterbacks looking to complete the trifecta is Houston’s Matt...
