Junior Seau’s daughter should be allowed to speak at Hall of Fame ceremony

Junior Seau suffered from C.T.E. causing wild swings in mood, depression, and anger. Seriously … how does the NFL keep bungling so many sensitive issues? From Ray Rice and their ignorance of domestic violence, to the Washington Redskin scandal, to the Adrian Peterson fiasco, the league appears out of date with the rest of society. In the upcoming pro football Hall of Fame enshrinement...

Junior Seau's family won't be allowed to speak at Hall of Fame induction: Report

And when Junior Seau enters the Hall next month, the scenario will be way more bitter than sweet.

Junior Seau falling prey to terrible Hall of Fame policy

Junior Seau‘s Hall of Fame enshrinement was not going to be a typical one. A stellar career at linebacker spent largely with the San Diego Chargers but a suicide and a posthumous diagnosis of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) that led to his family suing the National Football League makes for a potentially volatile time at the induction ceremony. However, a New York Times...

Les Miles lost Junior Seau to USC for a hilarious reason

Junior Seau was easily one of the greatest linebackers to play at USC. He translated that to a terrific career in the NFL, mainly with the San Diego Chargers. Sadly, Seau’s life ended too soon after he committed suicide in 2012 after suffering with head trauma from years of playing football. Sometimes, you have to look back at some of the funny moments in his life to get over the...

LSU Coach Les Miles Says He Lost Junior Seau To USC As A Recruit For A Hilarious Reason

Several SEC coaches are participating in ESPN’s car wash today in Bristol, where one of the topics has been “recruits who got away.” For Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze, it was Mississippi State defensive tackle Chris Jones back in 2013.  For LSU’s Les Miles, you have to go all the way back to the 1980s, when Miles was an assistant coach at Colorado.  Les Miles said Junior...

Such A Long, Long Time To Be Gone

I think this could actually be the longest I’ve gone without posting.  However, in my defense, I’ve had some good reasons.  Sam and I went to Aruba for a week without the kids, which was awesome.  But the first thing I saw when we got to the bar at the resort was an ESPN profile on which Chargers rookies could be starting in 2015.  Normally, I’d be psyched to see this. ...

It takes 53: Are star players overrated in today's NFL?

Lately I’ve come to the realization that most casual football fans don’t really understand football. It seems a lot of them think one guy can just magically win a game all by himself. You see and hear it all the time on social media, sports talk shows and even in bar room sports conversations. “Eli Manning has two rings and Tony Romo doesn’t, so Eli is the better quarterback”...

Ken Stabler donates his brain to CTE research

The situation with the NFL retired players and brain damage is a serious one. It made a move to the spotlight after Junior Seau committed suicide, and his brain showed symptoms of the ever-growing problem of CTE, or Chronic Traumatic Encephloapathy. In other words, serious damage from getting hit by large people at high speeds. Sounds a lot like the NFL to me. Ken Stabler is not...

How the Washington Redskins are changing up their rushing attack

One of the reasons why I think the Washington Redskins’ running backs are due for a big year in 2015 is diversification. Whereas in years past they have mostly used a power-run scheme, this year the plan is to include a wider variety of run schemes, including some zone. Here’s what offensive line coach Bill Callahan told the media during minicamp, per Rich Randler of CSN: ...
