Megatron undergoing some major repairs

Admin | January 19, 2014

Tune up: So, yo know how Megatron had offseason knee surgery? Turns out that wasn’t all he had worked on. Calvin Johnson is also recovering from a finger operation, which may explain some of the inexplicable drops he had late in the season which he’d usually grab in his sleep. Both the finger and knee [...]

Time to do some scouting on Harvin for 2014

Admin | January 12, 2014

Save for later: Percy Harvin, who has been struggling with a hip injury since … forever, it seems … remained “full” in Thursday’s practice, and claims he expects to be active for the Divisional Round.

Now, he’d like to improve his compensation for doing so. Despite having two years left on his current deal with the Eagles, Jackson [...]

My story: Why the Cardinals have the right idea on their QB battle (unlike some teams)

Admin | August 9, 2012

The Cardinals have a quarterback competition… which you may have read about. Kevin Kolb, the high-priced veteran, vs. John Skelton, the interesting unknown.

Before quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers run 40-yard dashes and sprint around cones, they visited Cardinals strength coach John Lott in the weight room Saturday to bench-press 225 pounds as many times as they could. Here’s how they did Blogs

Some Thoughts On Bowls (the college football ones)

Admin | December 13, 2011

By now you have seen the bowl schedule for this season. Boring as usual. It’s funny, during the regular season the only games people pay attention to are the ones involving ranked teams. Those are the ones we pick on our predictions page. But during bowl season, suddenly everyone pays attention to them all. Why? [...]

Some Big Upsets and Big BCS Blunders

Admin | October 25, 2011
