Phil Simms might avoid using “Redskins”

If a major broadcasting voice refuses to use the name “Redskins” when addressing the Washington football team, anger and venom from fans of said team will flow. That broadcaster would be following a decision made by some who write about the league (most notably, Peter King), but he’d be doing it repeatedly, and in real-time, increasing the impact of his omission. Soon we might...

Dean Blandino: NFL 'not going to change how we're calling the game'

It's pretty swell that football is back and all, even if it's the preseason. Not so swell: the barrage of penalty flags we've seen in the first two-and-change weeks, most of them on the defense for things like illegal contact and defensive holding. Bad news: the NFL's head of officiating, Dean Blandino, told Peter King of theMMQB.com the league is "not going...

Sports world mourns the loss of Robin Williams

This is one of the hardest posts I have ever written. Now that it is confirmed that legendary actor and comedian Robin Williams has passed away at the age of 63 from an apparent suicide, the shocking news has hit pretty much all of us at the same time.

Chiefs Could Try To Trade A Tight End Or Kicker Before Cutting Roster To 53

  According to Peter King of MMQB.com, the Kansas City Chiefs could make one of their tight ends and/or kickers available for trade before teams are forced to trim their rosters to 53 players. King expects the Chiefs to target a “low-round pick” in return for one of their tight ends or kickers. It seems unlikely that the Chiefs would be able to do any better than a sixth...

The importance of what Donte Whitner said about Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer

Everyone’s talking about what Donte Whitner was quoted as saying to Peter King’s MMQB this morning. The quote was this. “It’s been fierce,” Whitner said. “Two guys fighting for their lives. It’s close. I’d say [the locker room] is split about 50-50. We know they both can play.” While I think a lot of the focus has been on the split within the team and the report...
