Is Terrelle Pryor the Oakland Raiders' Savior?

Terrelle Pryor’s career at Ohio State can be summed up as a disappointment. On the field, he could have been the next Vince Young, and often looked the part.

FUMBLE!!!! (Week 2 Fantasy Football Stay and Plays)

My favorite guilty pleasure sports movie is The Replacements, which I usually will watch right as football season is upon us. I routinely visualize Shane Falco running awkwardly onto the field as the second half of the Sentinels-Ropers game begins to a mad ovation as a team of “replacement” players look to erase a seventeen point halftime deficit.
