One problem with McNabb, he is so biased against the Redskins, it is hard to know if he is telling the truth or just tying to pile on.
Here is what he had to say about the RG3 situation.
“This is about Mike Shanahan. Mike and [offensive coordinator] Kyle Shanahan trying to show why they feel like Kirk Cousins gives them the best chance of winning. So many things have leaked out...
Aaron Gordon might get all the pub for the Arizona Wildcats, but I promise you Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is going to become the better player.
Hollis-Jefferson was a McDonalds All American, and the next in a great lineage of players from Chester high school to go on to greatness.
Rondae displayed his future dominace with this amazing facial dunk against New Mexico State. Hollis-Jefferson...
When Madden calls something baloney, you know it is serious business. Here is what he had to say about RG3 and the Redskins courtesy of DC Sports Blog.
“I mean, you know it’s baloney,” he said, his strongest words on the topic. “I like Mike Shanahan, and I’m not talking behind his back, but when you say something like that, you know that’s not right — you’re not going...
Poor Mack, just twisting in the wind while Texas offers up the Dallas Cheerleaders and $100 million to Nick Saban.
He is currently taking the high road.

Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans are having a good time down in Orlando for the Home Depot College Football Awards show. Yesterday we showed you the pictures of Johnny photobombing a fan and posing with Disney characters.
Now Mike and Johnny are having some more fun, asking fans with an iPad to judge who worked harder on a few touchdowns. For what it’s worth, I think Mike got screwed...
Yesterday it Jim Brown expressing his dislike for Kobe Bryant spread around the internet like wildfire. Now that we have entered the phase in Kobe’s career where he admits he listens to all this stuff and is really honest about his thoughts, he has fired back:
Hey if Brown had the right to say he didn’t like Kobe, then Kobe can disagree.
Steve Spurrier is basically the Godfather of coach trolling. Steve might be towards the end of his coaching career but he hasn’t lost his fastball when it comes to getting the jabs in when he wants to. Here are his thoughts on the 4-8 Florida Gators being at home for the bowl season:
Spurrier: "Somebody told me the Gators are staying home for the holidays, maybe we can get...
Another day passes by, and another epic quote from Carmelo Anthony. Carmelo tries to say the right things, but when he makes the comments, it sounds worse than what he’s really trying to say. The Knicks almost blew a lead, but held on to defeat the undermanned Chicago Bulls. Anthony meant to say that the coach will get the blame anytime the big market Knicks lose, but said that...
Doc Rivers is the ultimate optimist, so it shouldn’t have been surprising when he blamed the lack of two other title rings on unfortunate circomstances.
Rivers and theCeltics won the 2008 title and very nearly won again in 2010. Kevin Garnett’s health prevented a repeat of that run in 2009, causing Rivers to say that the Celtics would have won two more had Garnett not been hurt...

Pau Gasol will become a free agent in the offseason and is all but assured of not return to L.A.
Gasol reportedly has not ruled out a return to the Memphis Grizzlies among what will be many options for the veteran power forward.
“It’s appealing,” Pau Gasol said. “One of the best centers in the NBA, one of the best interior players, is my brother. There’s a lot of attractive...
This news won’t make the Alabama people feel at ease at all. Geoff Ketchum of Orangebloods.com is reporting their sources saying Nick Saban is starting the process of vetting potential members of a Texas staff:

Now in the Rangers defense, Russell Wilson was a pretty good baseball player at one time, and he probably could make more in the Major Leagues if things were to pan out right.
Even though football seems to working fine for Wilson, The Texas Rangers chose the Seahawks quarterback in the minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft Thursday morning, spending $12,000 to get his rights...
The best shooter in the league once again showcased his skills last night on ESPN. Steph Curry dropped 33 points, 16 of them coming in the most important quarter. The biggest two points of the night, was the game-winner that Curry hit to win the game.

In this video/GIF taken from an exhibition match Ali fought against Michael Dokes in 1977, you can see the great Muhammad Ali dodge 21 punches from Dokes in a 10 second span, and then stick his tongue and shimmy like it was nothing.
Ali was reportedly 35 during this exhibition, Dokes a young 19.
Just some shade being thrown or is there some true merit to what Scott Boras has to say?
The relationship between super-agent Scott Boras and Jay Z has been strained to say the least. Hov threw shots at Boras on his latest album and ultimately stole his client Robinson Cano from him. If you have been following the news, you know Cano just signed a mega-deal deal with the Seattle...
There are people who are very passionate about their teams. Most people buy a har or a jersey to represent their favorite team. One Jaguars fan decided that wasn’t enough to show his loyalty so he decided to get his car painted to match the Jags helmet.
It seems that people either love or hate this helmet. I happen to love it but I wouldn’t want it on my car.
Of course it was a hummer.
It’s a shame that the biggest and probably toughest guy in the NBA is also one of the nicest.
Zach Randolph was in the giving mood after the Grizzlies loss to the Thunder, and a gave young special needs kid the shirt of his back.
Z-Bo gave the young fan his Grizzlies pre-game shooting shirt.
The little things are sometimes most important.

Wow, Paul George may have fired a single shot at 6 different people.
George and the Pacers are hell bent on dethroning LeBron James and the Miami Heat. George doesn’t want people to get it misconstrude that he and LeBron have any type of chummy, Kevin Durant type relationship.
Some people point to game two of the Eastern Conference Finals and that hand slap of respect George...
We all remember the game. The game when the G.O.A.T. looked in the eye of the debilitating flu and said, Not Tonight. The game where despite being sick as a dog, Michael Jordan had 38 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists. The game where Jordan, fatigued from illness left the court in the arms of Scottie Pippen. One of the most remembered games in the NBA…The Flu Game.
The list of quarterbacks Mike Shanahan has turned off or alienated is as long as his career wins list is. It’s absolutely astonishing that the man won so many games as a coach, albeit ruining almost every relationship he may have had with the quarterback on those teams.
Plummer walked away from football partly because of Mike Shanahan.
Plummer let loose on Shanahan during a recent...
Last night former Boston head coach Doc Rivers returned to the Garden for the first time since leaving the team to coach the Los Angeles Clippers. You might think that the passionate Celtics crowd would boo Rivers, especially after he admitted that he walked out of the team, but Rivers was welcomed back with a standing ovation.
Rivers’ his gracious reception did not surprise...
Christopher McComas believes that his years of dominating on Madden and the now departed NCAA Football series (RIP) will lead him to great success as the new head coach at the University of North Dakota. It appears he saw on Twitter that they were looking for a coach an decided to write a letter to Athletic Director Brian Faison along with a 9-slide PowerPoint:

Jim Harbaugh may have the best job in the NFL, so I can’t really see him running back to college football just because.
Adam Schefter is reporting that Harbaugh actually turned down the USC job a few weeks back. Things must have happened quietly, because Harbaugh wasn’t spoken of or mentioned as a serious candidate.
49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said to be on Texas' wish list but...
