Is Billy Bajema the best tight end the Baltimore Ravens have ever drafted?

No…but only because he wasn’t drafted by the Ravens. Alright that’s laughable as well. Bajema’s only true connection with the best tight end draft pick is the fact he wore 86 for Baltimore. As with most Super Bowl winners, the Baltimore Ravens offseason in 2001 saw them lose a number of key players from their team. Left and right, other NFL franchises picked away at the...

The idea of Todd Heap as a NFL Hall of Fame player is painful, like a giraffe with a sore throat.

Scrolling Craig's List can be fun.   There are missed connections to be browsed, haiku's to be discussed in the forums and collectibles to be sold. So, after confirming I was not a missed connection, I skipped the haiku discussion forum and found myself clicking an advertisement selling a playbook with multiple NFL players: (from Craig's List) Flacco/Anquan...

Mind-blowingly awful week for Cardinals

Lets review while stretching the definition of week in a Beatles, eight-days-a-week kind of way.

Injuries, innuendo tarnish Heap's Arizona stay

TEMPE, Ariz. This wasnt the way it was supposed to end. Not for a local legend. Not for Todd Heap.
