Cleveland Browns Head Coach Mike Pettine Takes the Team on a Paint Ball Trip

There is more to building a team than just drafting the right players and practice. You have to figure out how to get the guys to come together; to work together towards a common goal. That is something that is worked on during OTAs and mini-camp, but doesn't necessarily require football players play football. All they need to do is see and end goal and work together to beat it.That...

WATCH: New York Jets Rookie QB Bryce Petty Rocks Out to Phil Collins In the Air Tonight

One of the worst things anyone can do is take themselves too seriously. Life is hard enough as it is. While it may seem like guys in the NFL have it easy because of the money they make life is far from easy. Yes, you get paid, but you are constantly in danger of being deemed expendable, becoming obsolete, or losing your job to a younger version of yourself. Pressure is especially...

Dallas Cowboys Fans Drink a Lot (a whole lot) At Home Games

Being a fan of the Dallas Cowboys has been enough to make many a person want to drink. From the multi-interception games, the fourth quarter let downs, and the defense that couldn't stop a Pop Warner team--well, all that alone would be enough to drive you to drink--especially if you paid the freight to see those games in person.Last season was much better for the home team in Dallas...

Barry Bonds currently holds the record for most career home runs in MLB history. Should he still be given credit for it since he juiced? That's up to someone else too decide. The man is 50-years old now and has gone from being a big, kind of burly guy to a skinny little bike rider. He appears to be almost half the man he used to be. However, can he still swing a mean bat?Why yes...

San Francisco 49ers Want Defensive Lineman Quinton Dial to Play More Outside?

When it comes to the defensive line teams typically like to see the bigger guys inside stuffing the run and the smaller, quicker guys on the outside so they can use their speed to get around the end and rush the quarterback.
