You’ll Pay For This, Jaguars

Via Twitter Really, is a little attention from the national media really worth prostrating yourself to the Nugget Baron?

Chip Kelly is right about the draft being overhyped

At the risk of biting one of the hands that feeds me as an NFL writer, I can’t help but admit that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is bang-on in regard to his view of the NFL draft. Here’s what Kelly told Peter King of the MMQB Saturday: What’s the worst thing about the league? I said the draft. I mean, the hype that goes into the draft is insane. Totally insane....

Cam Newton Continues To Be The Best, Gives His Cleats To A Fan In A Wheelchair

Cam Newton has been picked apart in the media for smiling too much, not smiling enough, not being a leader, being too much of a showman and for supposedly hiding underneath his Gatorade towel. Of course, all those narratives surrounding Cam’s “attitude” are incredibly silly and Cam has shown, time and time again, that his actual actions speak far louder than other people...

Peter King believes the Giants may end up cutting Ryan Nassib

Peter King of TheMMQB.com wrote in his Monday Morning Quarterback Column that he wouldn’t be surprised if the Giants cut Ryan Nassib. “I think Doug Marrone sure looks like the smart one for passing on Ryan Nassib, his quarterback at Syracuse, in favor of E.J.

New York Giants: 5 Questions Heading into Training Camp

The 2013 season was an absolute disaster for Big Blue. The New York Giants came out of the gate by losing their first six games, ruining any realistic shot at the playoffs.
