WATCH: Jacksonville Jaguars Toby Gerbart Does Sweet Roll to Score Go-Ahead Touchdown

For years the first few years of his career Toby Gerhart had to be satisfied with garbage time and giving Adrian Peterson the occasional rest. This season he left the frozen tundra with hopes of actually playing and proving that he was a marquee running back in waiting. What better place to do that than the offense-starved and running back deficient Jacksonville Jaguars?So far it...

WATCH: Jacksonville's Jordan Todman Breaks Off Longest Run By a Jaguars RB in Four Years

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been in need of something--heck, many things--for some time: a running back. They thought they finally found one in Denard Robinson, but with him out for the season they had to look elsewhere Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans. They got it from the combined efforts of Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman, and Blake Bortles (174 yards combined).They got...

WATCH: Tennessee Titans RB Leon Washington With the Sweetest Moment of Thursday Night's Gamee

Leon Washington at one time was the guy you wanted to watch every time he got his hands on the ball, but that's not the case so much anymore. He's not lightning in a bottle like he used to be, but he is still a capable return man/running back. H just needs a chance to prove it.He got just such a chance Thursday night against the Jaguars, and even got the Titans on the board first...

WATCH: Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington is the Crazy One Talking To Himself on the Sideline

The NFL thinks that people would love to hear what is going on from the player's perspective during a game so the league will often mic'up a few players during the game. Sometimes it is pretty cool; often times all you hear is a guy breathing hard and grunting a lot. Then there are those times where you have to wonder if a player is just doing it for the mic.Like Nate Washington...

WATCH: Jacksonville Jaguars DL Sen'Derrick Marks Makes $600K Sack to End Game

Thursday night's game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans was not as bad as most people expected. I wouldn't call it a good game by any stretch of the imagination, but it was competitive. So competitive that with the final seconds ticking away Clipboard Jesus, aka Charlie Whitehurst, had the Titans within reach.That is, until Jaguars defensive lineman Sen'Derrick...

WATCH: NFL Network Crew Hitting Golf Balls in to the Crowd and on to the Field During Halftime

Thursday Night Football's final game (not including the Saturday one) was not expected to be much (and it wasn't), but you would have expected the NFL Network to treat it with a little respect, right? Well--they didn't. I suppose they thought they needed to do something goofy to make the broadcast a little more entertaining.So Marshall Faulk and Rich Eisen hit some golf balls in...

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce Has a Laugh Out Loud 'Touchdown Face'

The Kansas City Chiefs thought they had someone special when they drafted Travis Kelce in the third round of the 2013 draft out of Cincinnati. They just didn't figure they would have to wait till the '14 season to find out (injuries will do that though). Sometimes good things come to those who wait, and a player that has caught 56 passes for 747 yards and five touchdowns definitely...

Fun With Oakland Raiders Linebacker Sio Moore

It is a shame that Oakland Raiders fans are going to have to wait till next season to see linebacker Sio Moore play again. The second year player out of Connecticut--yes, good football players have come out of Connecticut--was put on the IR earlier this week ended his season. He finished the season with 90 tackled in 11 games and looks like he could be primed for a breakout season...

Cleveland Browns Offensive Lineman Joe Thomas Deserves to Be Fined For This

The way fines are doled out in today's NFL is ridiculous, but on some occasions it's actually good that the ability for the league office to hand them out exist. Not when it comes to handing guys $5000 fines for tossing a ball in to the stands (because fans are punks and may fight over it), but when it comes to guys doing dangerous things that the refs don't catch.Like Cleveland...

Did Tony Romo Reallhy Give Dez Bryant the Thumbs Up Prior to a Touchdown Pass Against Philly?

The big talk in Dallas this week is whether running back Demarco Murray is going to be healthy enough to be effective against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. With the division still not locked up the Cowboys need to have all hands on deck, and they may need Murray to help keep the ball out of Andrew Luck's hands.Should he not be able to go the Cowboys may look to simply to win a shoot...

Will This Be the Last Play for San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore?

Ever since San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore entered the league he has been one of the best and most reliable backs in the game. For the most part he could be counted on for at least 1,100 yards on the ground and a fair number of catches out of the backfield as well. Like many players he has missed time due to injuries, but he has always managed to come back and continue...

Did You See Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo Destroy Bengals QB Andy Dalton?

When it comes to Sunday's Browns-Bengals game the performance Johnny Manziel had has pretty much dominated the coverage. It's understandable to a degree; big name rookie making his first start and flopping in epic fashion. The only thing we like more than a superstar playing like he should is one playing like Johnny did.However, in the process a lot of other notable performances...

Will Indianapolis Colts LB Jonathan Newsome Be Fined For Leg Whip That Injured Ryan Fitzpatrick?

The Houston Texans were already facing an uphill battle against the Indianapolis Colts when Ryan Fitzpatrick was in the game. When he was knocked out fairly early in the second quarterback that hill turned in to a freaking mountain. It would not have been surprising if the game had turned in to a blow out from that point on, but instead it remained a tough, hard fought battle.During...

Ever since they moved it up to the week before the Super Bowl people have started to watch it even though the quality of play makes the preseason look stellar. So since fans and players already don't care the league might as well experiment with a few things to see how they work.One of the most notable changes...

Ever since his Heisman trophy season ended at Texas A&M the so called world wide leader in sports has made it a mission to troll Johnny Manziel as often as possible.
