Who Needs Receivers?

Seth at MGoBlog took a look at conference receiving over the last decade, and I noticed something as I was scanning the table with NFL draft picks in it. No Boilers, no Boilers … hmm, no Purdue WRs drafted by the NFL in the last 10 years. So I figured I’d ask p-f-r, because it knows everything. Give me a list of all Purdue WRs drafted in the Zlionsfan Graduate Era, 1991-2015...

Happy Anniversary, or nah?

Today marks the 42nd anniversary of a date that will live forever in infamy with Raiders fans, at least those of us who were around and old enough to remember the Immaculate Reception. Or as we prefer to call it, the Immaculate Deception. For those who can bear to watch, here is the original broadcast of the play that ended the Raiders 1972 season in Pittsburgh: Immaculate Reception...

Shots From The ‘Shoe- Ohio State 4 Miler

To me, running for fun is nauseating at best. Growing up playing sports, I absolutely despised the running part of any sport I played, so when I saw the Ohio State 4 miler, the thought of running in it made me shake like Brady Hoke at a salad bar. The OSU 4 miler is a 4 mile run that starts on the east side of the Shoe, travels through campus and ends on the 50 yard line. The Ohio...

Raider Nation has dissected the number five pick and had many a debate about what general manager Reggie McKenzie will do when the Raiders are on the clock.

A little-known pro-Pittsburgh Steelers rule that should shut the Oakland Raiders up

The Immaculate Reception…nevermind a description of that play, because if you don’t know about it already, well, there are literally thousands of articles floating around the Internet (even one or two written by Yours truly) that will fill in the blanks for you quite nicely. However, in the event that one of those articles happens to be filled with pro-Raiders propaganda, claiming...

Should the Oakland Raiders have won the Super Bowl in 1972?

Since Steelers week on NFL Network has come and gone and the Immaculate Reception was shown again, I often wonder if the Raiders would have won their first Super Bowl instead of the Miami Dolphins having the first and only undefeated season in NFL history. Before I get into that, let’s quickly review some points on the play that ended the Raiders hopes. The debate over the Immaculate...

The NFL's 10 Biggest Villains Of All Time

A great story needs a worthy villain to sustain interest in the plot. It works the same way in the sports world. There’s nothing more satisfying for a team’s fans than when they’re beating an opponent that’s nearly universally despised (except by its own rabid fan base).Villains in sports can be an individual or team; owner, coach or player.

Buffalo’s free agency dilemma

Yep, it’s true the Bills have a free agency dilemma. His name is Jairus Byrd. I have not seen a safety cause this much drama since Jack Tatum patrolled the Oakland Raider secondary. The dilemma is this – the Bills have to sign Byrd and they will in all likelihood have to overpay in order to do it. Byrd may not want to play in Buffalo, and not for the reasons many of you think...

The 10 biggest bullies in NFL history

Being a bully on the football field isn’t quite the same as being a dirty player. There are similarities. Both stretch the bounds of what the rules allow. A dirty player will take handfuls of jersey, inconspicuous kicks or punches when they believe they can get away with it.The difference is a bully doesn’t worry about where the boundaries of the rules end.
