A long time ago, 'Diva' wide receivers roamed the earth and these types of wide receivers are increasingly becoming added to the endangered species list according to every major sports journalist on the planet right now. With the recent releases of Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens, are diva wide receivers really on the endangered species list?
BEST OF MAXIM
Chad Johnson, who was recently let go by the Miami Dolphins a few weeks ago, used his Twitter to show how sad he is about not being able to play as himself in Madden 2013.
That awkward moment when you realize you're not on Madden13 and have to create yourself...— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) August 29, 2012
According to the tweet, Johnson is now forced to create a player, which...
According to the Palm Beach Post, the Miami Dolphins are fielding calls about a possible trade for QB Matt Moore. Would the Dolphins be interested in moving the journeyman quarterback? Miami is starting rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill this season but trading Moore would leave an experienced backup in case something were to happen to Moore. David Garrard is currently recovering...
Wide receiver Kris Durham, a fourth-round pick in 2011 who has struggled with injuries, was among the Seahawks' roster cuts down to Friday's 75-player limit, according to The Seattle Times. Durham had three catches as a rookie before landing on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. He has been struggling to stay on the field this preseason as well, and was expected to...
The Miami Dolphins just completed one of their worst preseasons in team history. For only the 3rd time in franchise history, the Dolphins failed to win a preseason game. The crazy thing is, the losses aren’t THAT terrible, but it’s how they Dolphins have looked that is troubling. Last night, in the 1st quarter, the [...]
A one-week hiatus from Hard Knocks for Lauren Tannehill sent men across America into severe bouts of deptression (or at least that’s how I imagined it).
Normally shown with her new buddy Jackie Long, Tannehill made a handful of appearances on Hard Knocks on Tuesday night, much to the delight of males on Twitter:
I would do horrible, immoral things to Lauren Tannehill. Unspeakable...
Big Red Bryant is a beast of a man. He can't jump to high. Today I bet he's wishing he could jump just a couple inches higher though.
HE chipped his tooth last night jumping, no wait, head-butting Jaye Howard after his 4th qtr safety.
Howard got the end zone sack for a safety to slap an exclamation point on the final quarter. It was a hell of a play.
He then ran...
I don’t know if it is the curse of Hard Knocks or the Dolphins are just that bad. At the beginning of training camp I thought they could be a sleeper team.
By the end of the training of camp, I am thinking they could be the worst team in the league.
They just have bad karma surrounding them.
This is not real life…team plane backed into another plane right before take...
In what was probably the best cheerleader showdown of the preseason, on August 10th the Dolphins took on the Buccaneers. Which means that the Dolphins cheerleaders and the Bucs cheerleaders were in the same building doing their thing on the same field. That to me is an event.
Boy is it hard to determine which squad is better. The fun however, is in watching them and not...
By 6PM Friday, all NFL teams need to cut down to a roster of 53 players. This means that NFL teams have to cut 22 players from their current 75-man roster. At first, 53 doesn’t seem like a very small number; there are only 22 people on the field at any one time. It would seem that a roster size of more than twice the number of people on the field would allow teams to have all the...
What’s this Jersey Kid doing in Texas Juan?
Reggie Bush has been hitting the malls and In N’ Out today as the Dolphins are getting ready for Cowboys today. Not exactly a pre-game meal, but it’s the fourth preseason game, so not much to learn about your starters at this point. It’s all about reps for the bubble guys.
Blast From The Past: CJ
Flashy camera angles and palm trees waving in the wind. Images conjured of neon lights and humid dance floors on South Beach. This is what one sees as the intro to the world that is the Miami Dolphins featured on Hard Knocks.The Dolphins have undergone a whirl-wind of adversity throughout the offseason heading into training camp. Whether it be missing on landing a head coach...
NFL teams have until 9 p.m. this evening to trim their rosters to 53 players. Hundreds of players will be released this afternoon but could the Miami Dolphins be looking at adding a wide receiver via trade? Miami has struggled this preseason to find a legitimate number one receiver. This week Miami worked out a trio of receivers.
Miami brought in veteran Donte Stallworth who was...
It’s just preseason

That was the negative chorus heard around Century Link Field Thursday night after the Seahawks beat the Oakland Raiders 21-3 to advance to a perfect 4-0 in preseason action.
The only other time in Seattle history the team has gone 4-0 was 2009, Jim Mora’s first (and thankfully only) season at the helm.
We all know how that year...
Seahawks Raiders Story-lines
I’m sitting here writing this at 1:00 Thursday morning, in large part because I spent the day traveling to Eastern Washington to pick up my nephew. He will be attending his first Seahawks game.
I have to be honest here, he is not a Seahawks fan, he’s a Buccaneer’s fan. Even-though he is not a member of the 12th man he has a deep hatred of the...
