Brandon LaFell met the challenge of learning Patriots offense

FOXBORO, Mass. — Brandon LaFell didn’t single anyone out, but we all know the names. Joey Galloway, Torry Holt, Chad Johnson, Greg Lewis: veteran receivers who had success elsewhere but couldn’t catch on to the New England Patriots’ complex offensive system. When LaFell signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Patriots this offseason, he didn’t want to be known...

Photo: Joey Galloway Puts Georgia Tech As His No. 1 College Football Playoff Seed, Tweets That He Was Joking

Three-quarters of ESPN college football analyst Joey Galloway’s playoff bracket look solid. Michigan State at four? They may need some help from other conferences, but the Spartans look like they may run through the Big Ten. Auburn and Mississippi State at two and three? They do look like the two best SEC schools at the moment, so that checks out. So who is at No. 1 for Galloway...

Purdue vs Illinois: PILLOW FIGHT Preview

Here’s where the very resistible force meets the quite easily moved object. Purdue has an offense that would be horrendous by mid-major standards. However, now they face a defense that can’t stop a nose bleed (CC Bart Scott). We will not be held liable for any mental and physical harm you incur from watching this. The fact that it’s even televised in the first place is frightening...

College Football Week 4

Good Gawd.Well this was another great ******* week of college football, now wasn't it?  I did this post Saturday night because I left for Fort Myers early Sunday morning to drink until the announcement of Brady Hoke being fired was handed down (fingers crossed).  Hopefully I didn't miss it in between black outs.  So some of these late games I didn't stay up for, or...

ESPN’s Joey Galloway Calls Alabama “The Most Overrated Team In College Football”

One college football Saturday is in the books, which means we’ve seen every team that is considered “elite” play one football game. For most people, one game isn’t enough to totally form an opinion on a team and whether it’s overrated or underrated. However, ESPN’s Joey Galloway has seen enough of the Alabama Crimson Tide to bestow upon them the title of the most overrated...

It seems that LaFell has put his nose to the grindstone and really put together a solid camp, but he's not getting overconfident. According to the AP, he puts himself at a...

Dan Snyder once called up Mike Holmgren to yell at him

Back in 2000, the Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren traded Joey Galloway to the Dallas Cowboys for two number one picks. The other team Holmgren was negotiating with, the Washington Redskins, wasn’t too pleased about the trade. Redskins’ owner Dan Snyder then called up Holmgren and proceeded to have a screaming match with him. Here’s Holmgren on Sports Radio KJR last...

Bucstop’s Video of the Day: First Home Game of Last Playoff Team The year was 2007, the last time the Bucs were a playoff team. Coming off a disasterous 2006 year, the Bucs resigned new coaches including bringing back Raheem Morris as DBs coach.  The biggest disaster of 06 was not having a QB, something that Jon Gruden never really had in Tampa. He brought in Jeff Garcia past his prime, but Garcia had one more good...

Bucstop’s Video of the day: Joey Galloway

Basically the Bucs got Joey Galloway for Keyshawn Johnson. It looked like a bad deal in 2004 as Galloway suffered a hurt Hamstring opening day going for a TD pass at Washington (that had not been dropped would have tied the score) Bucs fans didn’t see Galloway until  End of the year when he caught a 3 yard TD pass from Brian Griese and just to show how far he was down the depth...

Herbstreit, Smith, Galloway debate college athletes’ compensation

You should definitely read the whole back-and-forth between former Ohio State players and current ESPN analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Robert Smith and Joey Galloway, but the part that I want to highlight comes from Herbstreit.  He seems to agree with my contention one of the NCAA’s biggest problems is perception, something it does little to help with its consistently tone-deaf responses...

BBQ: Dallas Cowboys Combine Edition

The NFL Combine is just a couple of days away and got a few questions regarding the NFL Draft and the Combine itself plus one is wondering about the playoffs.  Incidentally, Dallas got their first victory of the season as they won the coin toss to have the 16th pick in May’s draft.

Jerry Jones is due for a Blockbuster Trade

We now know the Cowboys will have the #16 pick overall for this May’s Draft, but what we don’t know is what they will do with the pick. Conventional wisdom clearly suggests the Cowboys will address a decimated defense with the pick. The wild card, as it is every draft is whether or not Jerry Jones will trade the pick to move up or down. As the GM, Jerry has been very active when...

The fact that Brady targeted Thompkins so much bodes well, right? Obviously only 4/14 connected, but Kenbrell must be doing something right to get so many passes from a QB who is notorious for taking whatever defenses give him.
