Doug Martin Is Now A Christmas Hamster

Buccaneers running back and notorious muscle hamster, Doug Martin, appears to have acquired a holiday appropriate onesie. Is he planning to reprise the role of of the angry midget elf from “Bad Santa”? I certainly hope so. Yeah, I know that, at 5’9″, Doug Martin is not actually a midget, just tiny relative to other NFL behemoths. But I imagine it’ll work because the rest...

No love lost between the Philadelphia Eagles linebackers and the departure of the Wide-9

It was no illusion. The Philadelphia Eagles defense played better than they had in weeks in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It couldn’t have all been because the death knell had been blown to the Wide 9 with the firing of Jim Washburn, could it? Not all, but it certainly didn’t hurt.
