Cleveland Browns Fan Sings 'The Ballad of Brian Hoyer'

For a couple of games last season there appeared to be a glimmer of hope for the long-suffering fans of the Cleveland Browns.

Atlanta Falcons Mascot Freddie Falcon Has the Solution to Idiot Field Streakers

One of the most annoying things in sports is the field streaker. No one wants to see the game disrupted by some moron running around in their underwear, naked, a pirate costume, or anything else for that matter. If the game is good we want more action; if its bad we want it to end sooner rather than later.Fans are not laughing with them either. They are laughing at them--like when...

Parents of Florida State QB Sean Maguire Need Tickets to Clemson Game; Gave Theirs Away

Florida State quarterback Sean Maguire was not supposed to play against Clemson. He was the back-up to the reinging Heisman trophy winner. It would take a minor miracle/catastrophe to occur for his parents to see him play. So they gave their tickets away to a relative like good relatives do.Sure enough--a minor catastrophe happened courtesy of Jameis Winston.@WarchantRead more »

Kansas State HC Bill Snyder: Auburn Didn't Win the Game; K-State Lost It

Instead, what fans got was an Auburn team that couldn't capitalize on K-State's many, many mistakes.K-State missed three field goals...

Deion Sanders Poked Fun at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Twitter During TNF Debacle

If you missed the Thursday night game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers you didn't miss a thing. Julio Jones, Matt Ryan, and pretty much everyone else on the Falcons team looked like MVP-caliber candidate against the hapless Buccaneers. As for the Bucs?The fans can't even line up the eye holes in their paper bag masks so they can see (than again, that...

Thursday Night Football's LOL Play of the Game: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Butt-Snap

Things did not go well for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday night. Part of it was because the Falcons are simply a better team (duh). It also didn't help that the Bucs could not stop making mistakes that were downright silly--like this play where Evan Dietrich-Smith thought Mike Glennon was going to be under center when he snapped the ball.But he wasn't.Read more »

Devin Hester and Lovie Smith Had a Nice Moment Prior to Thursday Night's Game

Prior to Thursday night's game Devin Hester and his former coach Lovie Smith had a nice moment on the field. After spending years together in Chicago the two are now in Atlanta and Tampa Bay respectively.Since Hester recorded 19 of his kick and punt return touchdowns under Lovie's watch it was only fitting that he broke the record with Smith in the house.@SBNationGIF/Twitter...

Isn't Tampa Bay Buccaneers HC Lovie Smith Supposed to be a 'Defensive-Minded' Coach?

During Lovie Smith's tenure with the Chicago Bears there was one thing you could count on from the Monsters of the Midway. Their defense was going to be tough. Teams knew nothing was going to be easy against the Bears D because they did everything well. Of course it helped that he had some great personnel, but after watching the abysmal performance his Bucs put on Thursday night...

WATCH: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Had a Little Trouble With the Snap Thursday Night

No. 20 Kansas State was able to move the ball against No. 5 Auburn in the first half of Thursday night's game, but there was one problem--they couldn't seem to score.

WATCH: Devin Hester Takes Sole Possession of KR/PR Touchdown Record With No. 20 Against Tampa Bay

For years Devin Hester has been one of if not the most feared return man in the NFL. During his years in Chicago he returned 19 kick-offs and punts for a touchdown tying the legendary Deion Sanders. However, at 31 the Bears didn't think he was worth the money anymore.Lucky for Falcons fans their team thought differently.via Bleacher ReportRead more »

Devin Hester has to be a happy guy. After landing in Atlanta upon leaving Chicago he had to be a little apprehensive--you know, new town, new fans, new offense, etc. However, two weeks in and he not only looks like he belongs in the ATL, but he looks like he's loving it!Did he ever hug a security guard in Chicago after a big play?via Bleacher ReportRead more »

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan Hit in the Eye By Some Pregame Pyrotechnics?

After flopping in epic fashion last season the Atlanta Falcons want nothing more than to prove that they are a force to be reckoned with; that they are competition that should be feared. What better place is there to set the tone than on national television on Thursday Night Football?Now if they could only avoid hitting their quarterback in the eye during the pregame intro pyrotechnics...

Eastern Kentucky's Football Intro is Straight Out of a Science Fiction Movie

At first thought you might think 'Eastern Kentucky--who cares?' It's not like they are a big school or anything--and that's true. What they are is a small school that plays it smart. Their schedule is full of other FCS teams and Florida. So since they don't get spanked twice a year by a power house they may not be familiar to a lot of fans.But if they are able...

Looks Like San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Did Use Some Naughty Language After All

One of the new things that the NFL's referees are supposed to be focusing on this season is the language used on the field in hopes that potential scuffles caused by trash talk will never happen. Being told 'you suck' just doesn't have the same bite as 'you f***** suck you stupid *** *****.'Good idea? Eh--sounds kind of silly, but don't tell Colin Kaepernick...

Sometimes under extreme circumstances people are capable of doing things that people refer to as 'super-human.' There are all sorts of stories about mom's going beast mode and lifting trucks off of their babies, but that is truly an extreme circumstance.
