Plaxico Burress Piles On Nick Saban, Rips His Ex-Michigan State Coach

Plaxico Burress didn’t have much invested in the Sugar Bowl, but it’s safe to say he likely didn’t mind the result. Nick Saban and the University of Alabama was bounced from the College Football Playoffs on Thursday night when they were upended by the underdog Ohio State in New Orleans. Burress used the marquee matchup — and Crimson Tide loss ...

Do Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and others play in 2015?

The National Football League has given plenty of people second chances. In the past, players such as Michael Vick and Plaxico Burress have been imprisoned only to return to an NFL field. In comparison, Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson, who struck their fiancee and child respectively, should have no problem getting a chance at redemption if history is a guide.

Beckham Jr.'s 'Fingertip' catch can't top Tyree's 'Helmet' catch

While Odell Beckham Jr.'s  one-handed, super-stretch touchdown grab against the rival Cowboys on Sunday night was a remarkable feat, it started a debate Giants fans will be having over at the office cooler for days to come. Was it the greatest catch in NFL history, as it's being called, or even in the Giants own glorious past? For the argument, one only has to look back at...

Plaxico Burress Wishes Michigan State Could Play Notre Dame This Year, Thinks Irish Are “Ducking” Spartans

No, this doesn’t make much sense, but it’s still amusing, nonetheless. Former Michigan State wideout Plaxico Burress is clearly impressed with the way his alma mater has been playing this season. In fact, he wishes that the Spartans could play Notre Dame this year – and he accused the Irish of “ducking” them. Too bad we @MSU_Football don’t get the chance to play Notre...

2014 Fantasy Football Profile: Steelers WR Martavis Bryant

By Tony DelSignore Jr. Ben Roethlisberger has been campaigning for a tall receiver for years.

Santonio Holmes has no excuses

This is it for Santonio Holmes. He’s 30 years old and given his injury history and sketchy character record, he’s most likely on his last chance in the NFL. He’s in danger of booting himself out of the league similar to Plaxico Burress, Terrell Owens and Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson. In this offense, Holmes has the perfect opportunity to reinvent himself and prove to everybody...

Work to Do, But Bryant is Emerging for the Steelers

There’s no reason for me to bring up the never-ending story of how the Pittsburgh Steelers need a tall, athletic wide receiver. You know the whole thing as well as I do. It’s been discussed every year since Plaxico Burress left for the New York Giants but perhaps, and I stress, “perhaps,” the search may finally be over. In the fourth round of this years draft, the Steelers...

Photo Credit: AP Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested on gun possession charges in February when he allegedly threatened his wife with a gun.

Carolina Panthers’ Super Bowl champion odds are one of NFL’s best value bets

This week, the wise guys in Vegas released the latest odds to win Super Bowl XLIX. And the usual suspects were at the top of the list, with the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers the co-favorites at 5-1 and the Denver Broncos just behind them at 11-2.
