McCoy doesn’t see Murray as a rival for best back title

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has never run short on confidence, so it should come as no surprise that he doesn’t view Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray among those playing his position who are competing with him for the title of best running back in the NFL. McCoy made the arguably dismissive comments about Murray in GQ’s NFL preview issue, which hit newsstands...

Jeb Bush on fantasy draft, selecting ‘Too many Bills’

The standard adage when it pertains to matters such as these has always been, “No one cares about your fantasy team.” But in the wacky world of presidential race politics, even the fantasy football draft selections by a potential Republican nominee can make it into the news cycle, as evidenced by how Jeb Bush breaking down his draft picks on Twitter has become a topic of conversation...

Kirk Cousins doesn't mind 'game manager' label

Kirk Cousins understands all too well that he doesn’t bring the flash, style and sexiness that predecessor Robert Griffin III brought to the Washington Redskins’ starting quarterback position.

LeBron plays far better when wearing patented headband

Much has been made about LeBron James’ sometimes knee-jerk decisions to ditch his patented headband for certain games, but most of it appeared to be a stylistic choice and even an attempt to build team unity, as the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar once explained it. Perhaps most surprising is how fans and media become transfixed on such a seemingly innocuous thing. Well, it appears...

Rickie Fowler earlier this year was ranked far and above as the most overrated golfer in the world according to a Sports Illustrated poll of his PGA Tour colleagues.

Brandon Marshall: Weight loss was inspired by infomercial

Count Brandon Marshall among those individuals who have had their interest piqued by one of those infomercial ads that run incessantly on television. In the New York Jets wide receiver’s case, though, he actually did something about it.

Kevin Durant doubles down on ‘best player in the world’ talk

Kevin Durant may be coming off an injury-plagued 2014-15 season that saw him appear in only 27 games, but it hasn’t altered his perception regarding where he ranks among the top players in the NBA.

John Fox responds to Mike McCarthy’s smack talk

The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers enjoy the NFL’s longest rivalry, going all the way back to 1921, so it makes sense that over the years some serious smack talk has occurred between members of the respective, longtime organizations. With the teams renewing the rivalry with a Week 1 showdown, the trash talk trend continued when Packers head coach Mike McCarthy delivered a...

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels ‘happy’ for Tom Brady

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels became one of the few members of the organization who actually said something of some substance in the wake of Thursday’s ruling that nullified Tom Brady’s four-game suspension.

Bill Belichick on having Tom Brady back: ‘He never left’

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was at his patently contrite best when asked Friday about how it felt to have Tom Brady back in the fold as the team begins in earnest to prepare for Week 1 of the 2015 NFL regular season. In a distinctly Belichickian manner, the coach acted as if things haven’t changed one bit since Brady’s four-game suspension was nullified by U...

Kirk Cousins discusses what it’s like to be called ‘Kurt’

Kirk Cousins has been put in the unenviable position of picking up the pieces in the wake of how the Washington Redskins so completely bungled the starting quarterback position in benching Robert Griffin III and inserting him as the team’s starting quarterback. It might help his confidence a bit if people stopped calling him “Kurt” all the time. Cousins made his first comments...

Rob Gronkowski set to launch ‘Gronk’s Hot Sauce’

In a near-perfect match of endorser and product, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is set to launch his own brand of hot sauce. Fittingly, it’s called Gronk’s Hot Sauce, a “12-ounce sauce made from cayenne and habanero peppers,” per a WCVB report. Given Gronkowski’s fiery personality and the spiciness inherent to a typical hot sauce, it’s a brilliant marketing combination...

Given that there's a real good chance Robert Griffin III won't be with the Washington Redskins for much longer, one would expect a fan who named his son after the now-benched quarterback following a phenomenal rookie season would be feeling at least a tinge of regret. But to ask Emanuel Vega, the father of two-year-old Robert Griffin Vega, there is not one thing he would change...
