In this age, we have a tendency to only remember things which happened five seconds ago. Everything is the greatest of all-time. Current scandals will tarnish legacies forever. Last night’s game was a watershed moment. In reality, most of that talk is utter nonsense. Events are blown completely out of proportion, because so many don’t understand its context within history.

San Diego Chargers QB Phillip Rivers Broke Record Previously Held By Johnny Unitas and Kurt Warner Last Week

Phillip Rivers is awesome. The fiery veteran has given bloggers all sorts of material over the years with his wild displays of emotion. When this guy is happy it's obvious; angry--ditto. When he is pumped up there is no one in the league that is as animated as he is, and we love him for that. It's provided us with countless seconds of entertainment.But--did you know he's actually...

Week 3 (9/14) – Seahawks Win!

Hell.  Yes. As he’s done so many times before in his short career, Russell Wilson came through in the clutch, taking advantage of a tired Denver defense by chewing up large chunks of real estate on the ground for first down after first down.  Sure, the Broncos were able to take it down to the wire thanks to a comeback that wiped out a two-score lead by Seattle in the fourth quarter...

Morrall just seemed ready, always ready… In that sense, I guess he was the earliest example I had as a fan of the consummate NFL professional. In Baltimore today there is still a...
