Bradford looks positively Flacco-esque to teams like the Bills and Browns

The Rams and Bradford are currently exploring possibilities for a contract fix, either through a renegotiation of his final year or even an extension that reduces his overall salary and cap hit but keeps him with the team beyond 2015. Fisher and Snead both made it clear at the Combine that Eric Dickerson Youth Jersey […]

The Redskins entered knowing they might try an onside kick based off a certain look that they received

“Maybe I should have punted, but I had faith that he’s going to make those kicks. I see him do it every day in practice.” The problem is, Hopkins has now missed five of nine field goal attempts of 50 yards or longer in his career. Yes, the conditions were perfect, but it’s still a […]

Going deep works well for Antonio Brown and Steelers

It’s hard for Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown to top himself, but on Thursday he did, with the first game of his career with three touchdown receptions. This was Brown’s second three-touchdown game. He had three against the Colts last season, but one of the touchdowns came on a punt return. Notable about the three […]

Kendricks has been receiving a steady dose of targets in the Los Angeles Rams offense of late

It’s rare we find a tight end dependent on big-play production, but with McDonald averaging 17.6 yards per catch while working with Kaepernick the past five games, such is the case. We don’t find a steady series of opportunities for McDonald — he’s averaging just 5.1 targets per game since Kaepernick took over starting duties […]

Hue Jackson says RG III will practice with Browns next week

Cleveland Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III will practice next week, coach Hue Jackson said Friday. Though Griffin will be able to practice, he needs to clear one more medical hurdle before he will be cleared for contact to play in a game. The Browns still must lose six more games to join an infamous club, […]

Does Mike Trout’s MVP win answer who’s most valuable?

In 2010, after years of rewarding the pitcher with the most wins, Cy Young voters gave the award to Felix Hernandez. The Mariners ace had gone 13-12, and the vote was celebrated by many as a victory not just for the King but for the voting process in general. The tyranny of wins was dead. […]

Tyreek Hill’s increased playing time shows his value to Chiefs

It’s interesting to chart the game-by-game snap counts for Tyreek Hill, because they show how the Kansas City Chiefs have so quickly come to rely on the rookie wide receiver. He was in for nine offensive plays in the season opener against the San Diego, followed by eight, 11 and 18 in the next three […]

Rams’ Jeff Fisher says DE Robert Quinn ‘feeling much better’ after hospitalization

Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher said “things look encouraging” for defensive end Robert Quinn, who was admitted to a hospital Monday morning with a non-football-related illness. Fisher wouldn’t go into details regarding Quinn’s medical condition but said it’s “highly unlikely” that it is related to the benign brain tumor he was diagnosed with in […]

Upbringing in military family shaped Deone Bucannon into man he is today

Deone Bucannon insists growing up in a military family wasn’t much different than growing up in anybody else’s family. By time the Arizona Cardinals hybrid linebacker/safety enrolled at Vanden High School, located midway between Oakland and Sacramento, California, he had moved several times. Bucannon was born in Oakland and moved to Hawaii. When his family […]

Detroit coach Babcock noted the similarities between the teams

Detroit Red coach Babcock, on a couple of recent occasions, has referred to the San Sharks as the best team the Conference. He saw further evidence of this Thursday. The faster, fresher, more physical Sharks exploded for three goals a span of 3 midway through the second period and dominated the Red a 4 victory […]
