My friend Ralph Malbrough took the time to put this together so that we can finally put "Bounty Gate" to bed. Goodell shouldn't be allowed to ruin our 2013 season as well, which is already affected by the fact that Sean Payton can...
Besides the Falcons win at home, I think the Bucs win on the road was the most memorable Saints game of the season. This one was full of big plays and you will be able to enjoy a couple others as we get deeper into this series. For #8 on the year, though, I've picked the play that ended the game, with Patrick Robinson pushing Mike Williams out of bounds to seal the deal. Williams...
This is actually something I’d expect to hear from the likes of Mr. Skip Bayless. Colin Cowherd isn’t a stranger to his dubious opinions at times, but they are after all his opinions.
On Cowherd’s afternoon radio show on ESPN ‘The Herd’ he spent a lot of time heaping praise on rookie QB Russell Wilson. And to his credit, Wilson deserves that praise, despite the loss,...
