Jason Pierre-Paul thinks he’s ‘worth a lot of money’

There’s nothing doing with JPP and the NYG. Per ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Jason Pierre-Paul, in the final year of his rookie contract, has yet to receive an offer from the Giants, who appear poised to let the pass-rusher test the free agent waters. While a source tells me it's not a concern, the Giants have not reached out with an offer to extend DE Jason Pierre-Paul, at this...

Whisenhunt on Titans’ franchise-worst season: ‘Not fun’

The Titans’ trainwreck 2014 campaign hit a new low on Thursday night, when they were defeated by the equally-hapless Jaguars. It was the ninth straight loss for Tennessee (2-13) — perhaps more damnable, their 13th in the last 14 games. “It’s not fun,” Coach Ken Whisenhunt said, per The Tennessean. “But I am happy to be here in Nashville, working for this organization...

Titans’ Taylor Lewan: I’m not a scumbag

Titans rookie tackle Taylor Lewan put his court case to rest on Monday — receiving one-year probation for a bar brawl that occured last December — but he has other things on his mind.

Teammates gush about record-setting Odell Beckham Jr.

It was more of the same from Odell Beckham Jr. on Sunday. And the same is very, very good. The Giants’ electrifying rookie receiver had 12 catches for 143 yards and three touchdowns in the team’s 24-13 win over Washington. In other words, he single-handily defeated the Redskins. Beckham Jr. now has posted 90 receiving yards in seven straight games, adding an NFL record to...

Clay Matthews fined $10,000 for wearing white cleats

Just call him Clay “White Shoes” Matthews. The Packers’ star linebacker donned a pair of white cleats during last Monday night’s game against the Falcons. His fashion statement, though aesthetically pleasing, didn’t go over so well with the league office. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Matthews was fined $10,000 for wearing the white cleats — classified...

Frank Gore on loss to Raiders: Lowest point of the season

The 49ers’ 2014 season can only be classified as an up-and-down campaign. Sunday proved to be more of the latter. San Francisco was upset by the hapless Raiders, 24-13, in the Battle of the Bay. It was the second straight loss for the 7-6 Niners, who fell to third place in the ultra-competitive NFC West. Frank Gore didn’t sugarcoat the disappointment. “If we were to beat...

Oregon has scored more points in Levi’s Stadium than 49ers

On Friday night, the Oregon Ducks cruised to a 51-13 victory in the PAC-12 Championship Game at Levi’s Stadium. It was the second contest (and win) for the Ducks in Santa Clara. The stadium, of course, is also the new, $1.3 billion home of the San Francisco 49ers, who have played five games to date in the building, winning three.

Chargers guard concussed after slipping, falling in rain

Sunny San Diego was doused with a highly unusual liquid on Wednesday morning — rain, as it’s come to be known. Rather than head indoors, the Chargers decided to practice in the elements. The result was not a good one for Ryan Miller. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers guard suffered a concussion after slipping and falling to the ground, seemingly due to the...

It may not be a Lambeau Leap, but Josh Cribbs plans to make a similar splash in Cleveland. This time as the opponent. “If I had the opportunity to score, I would jump in the Dawg Pound to hug those guys who helped create me and helped give me the strength and the motivation to become what I am today,” the Colts return man said, per the Akron Beacon Journal.

Justin Tuck: 49ers-Raiders will be a ‘bloodbath’

There will be no love lost in the Battle of the Bay Area. The 49ers and Raiders currently are on different ends of the NFL spectrum; one team is fighting for a playoff spot, the other is the favorite for the No. 1 overall draft pick. You could probably guess which is which. Justin Tuck, like many of his teammates, is aiming to avenge Oakland’s 52-0 shellacking by the Rams in...

Mike Pettine rips Terrance West for ‘inexcusable’ fumble

Terrance West’s stock (and, likely, playing time) is heading south. The Browns’ rookie running back lost a fumble in the third quarter of Sunday’s 26-10 loss to the Bills. Unfortunately for West, the fumble was extraordinarily costly, as it was scooped up and returned for a touchdown. Seizing an incredible shift in momentum, Buffalo took a 14-3 lead and never looked back....

Sanchez on butt fumble: ‘It sucked. I ran into some guy’s butt’

This year, Mark Sanchez’s Thanksgiving feast included his just deserts. Sanchez, the Eagles’ de facto starting quarterback, played spectacularly on the Turkey Day stage, leading first-place Philly to a 33-10 win over the Cowboys. It was, as most realize, a departure from the last time Sanchez took the field on Thanksgiving — Nov. 22, 2012, or “day of the butt fumble.” ...

Jaguars coach calls out Blake Bortles: ‘We expect more’

Through eight starts, the question remains whether Blake Bortles is definitively the Jaguars’ quarterback of the future. What we do know is he’s struggling in the present. The No. 3 overall draft pick, who started off fairly strong in Jacksonville, has plummeted in recent weeks, regressing to the error-prone ways that are typical of rookie signal-callers.

Matt Forte: Bears coaches told us we played ‘worst half’

For the first thirty minutes, you wondered if the Bears even got off the bus. During Sunday’s home matchup against the rudderless Buccaneers, Chicago went into halftime with a 10-0 deficit and having been severely outgained in total yards, 211-68. Predictably, the team received an earful about their effort — or lack thereof — in the locker room, as told by running back Matt...
