Getting drafted to the Buffalo Bills in 1999 was a privilege and honor for me.  That team was talent...

Doug Flutie: Tom Brady 'can play well into his 40s if he wants to'

Doug Flutie was lucky enough to enjoy an NFL career that stretched well into his 40s. He sees no reason why Tom Brady can’t do the same. “No doubt about it,” Flutie said Monday in a phone interview with NESN.com. As far as quarterbacks go, Flutie and Brady share few similarities. The former was a little guy — a 5-foot-9 scrambler known for his mobility and making plays with...

NBC’s Flutie-Mayock Switcheroo Is A Smart Move… For One Day Only

Mike Evans: Johnny Manziel is a “team player”

It’s the ultimate in biased quotes and nobody’s denying it. Tampa Bay Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans spoke to the media about his time with Johnny Manziel and didn’t hide the fact that he’s in the tank for his friend. That being said, after reading his quotes, you don’t get the sense that Johnny Manziel is being anything other than forthright when he’s saying all the right...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The statue of Doug Flutie outside Boston College's Alumni Stadium was playfully defaced this week when someone - presumably by a UMass supporter - draped a Minuteman jersey over it.
