Titans DE: Johnny Manziel doesn’t deserve ‘Johnny Football’ moniker

With Josh McCown still going through the NFL’s concussion protocol, it remains up in the air whether or not Johnny Manziel will get the nod to start under center for the Cleveland Browns.

Mets announce end of ‘homophobic’ Kiss-Cam routine

The New York Mets may be in the midst of a near-miracle season but something the team has been doing during home games at Citi Field has been the target of criticism, particularly on social media.

Chip Kelly surprised by media’s interest in size of his play card

Chip Kelly couldn’t quite believe it that the media seemed so keenly interested in how it seemed he was wielding a much smaller laminated play card during Monday night’s 26-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. So much so, in fact, that he jokingly quizzed reporters on whether they noticed any other seemingly trivial details. The Philadelphia Eagles head coach’s back-and-forth...

Romo: Cowboys need 'other guys to step up' with Dez out

Tony Romo obviously understands that the Dallas Cowboys offense’s potency and perhaps even its productivity will be hamstrung due to the presumed lengthy absence of Dez Bryant in the coming weeks and perhaps months after the receiver underwent surgery to repair the fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot. But to hear the veteran signal-caller explain it, all the team...

Tabloids link Jarryd Hayne to pop star Dinah-Jane Hansen

Jarryd Hayne’s NFL regular season debut got off to an inauspicious start when he muffed up his shot at returning a punt by fumbling the ball during the San Francisco 49ers’ 20-3 win Monday night over the Minnesota Vikings. But the former Australian rugby superstar-turned-long shot training camp darling-turned NFL player is seeing his star rise Stateside. And it might have gotten...

In what used to be a bold move that now has become totally clichéd act of false bravado, Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen attempted to downplay the putrid performance he and his teammates put on Monday night in a 20-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers by guaranteeing a much-needed home victory over the division rival Detroit Lions on Sunday. “I feel that we’re...
