Tom Brady’s Cuss-Fest Draws FCC Complaints

This blog is about the sideline rant that won't go away. I should say, this sideline rant is the one that the sports media won't let disappear. Yes, that cuss-fest on the sidelines of the November 30th Green Bay Packers vs New England Patriots game has reared its ugly head once again. I wish that this bit of news was a joke, but it's not. I still can't believe I am going to write about it.

Jarvis Landry one of the many rookies making an impact in the NFL

It’s no secret how much of a great player Jarvis Landry has been in his first year in the NFL.

Do the Miami Dolphins have the creepiest mascot in the NFL?

Chances are if you’re here it’s because you watch sports, which have been known to be pretty awesome from time to time. One thing that’s not-quite-so-awesome about sports though are mascots. Why do we need them? What’s the deal? I get it for a high school football team that needs to raise morale for the big homecoming game, but why do NFL teams representing millions of fans...

It also means that the NFL landscape looks different than most people would have predicted. As the final two weeks of the season get underway, there are a slew of big games involving teams...

Column: The reality of things with the Miami Dolphins

A butt kicking on par with any in history was delivered to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and along with it, a lesson about winning in the NFL. What separated those two teams yesterday was not talent or depth or scheme or any of those tangible things that people like to point to when trying to actualize outcomes. What was on display yesterday were all the intangibles that coaching...

Is Jarvis Landry of the Miami Dolphins a top ten punt returner in the NFL this year?

The last time we talked about the best kick returners in the NFL it was back in October, when Devin Hester of the Atlanta Falcons took home the number one spot in our power rankings.
