Aaron Rodgers’ 1970s mustache is the season’s grooviest new meme

The Packers have added a new piece to their offense: Aaron Rodgers’ rugged mustache. On Tuesday, the Packers tweeted this photo of Rodgers looking like he just got out of a Nazareth concert in the 70s. He’s had facial hair before, but never like this. The ‘stache is a throwback to a young Wilford Brimley. […]

the Jaguars paid a lot of money for Malik Jackson to play 3-technique for them.

My pick for the Houston Texans’ breakout player is a guy by the name of Christian Covington. Now, he isn’t really a household name yet, but I definitely think this kid is a rapidly ascending player. He will be going into his third season, and I thought he filled in very well for J.J. Watt […]

The Jaguars are our biggest rival

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t been to the playoffs since the 2007 season, but that’s not going to stop them. They came close last year, and with DeSean Jackson and O.J. Howard in the building, they’ve got enough talent to push them over the top. Jameis Winston should take the next step to becoming a […]

When you think of Philadelphia, you think of cheesesteaks.

The Raiders had one of the top offenses in the league last season and return all their big names. Derek Carr has made leaps each season, so there’s every reason to believe he will do it again. They added a few more weapons, too. Marshawn Lynch came out of retirement and is an upgrade over […]

Panthers’ Twitter acknowledges Deondre Francois’ resemblance to Cam Newton

On Saturday night, No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Florida State faced off in what many called the biggest college football opening game of all-time in Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Alabama got the best of FSU, and won the game 24-7. Kansas City shook off a 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS start last season to […]

Broncos cut T.J. Ward, but don’t expect him to be on the market for long

The Denver Broncos cut a key defensive leader, safety T.J. Ward, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Denver tried to shop Ward in the week leading up to his release, but no trade partners materialized. The departure of Ward will be felt in the Broncos’ locker room. Von Miller said this week that he hoped […]

Why Mike Bennett is the Jaguars’ breakout player this season

You probably haven’t heard much about the Michael Bennett playing defensive tackle in Jacksonville (not the guy in Seattle, who should still be playing for my Bucs.) The primary reason why is because he has been injured for much of his career so far. Ray Lewis – “When me and Steve Bisciotti were talking, this […]

I guess you could say I think this will technically be Brandon Oliver’s second breakout season.

See, in 2014, as an undrafted rookie free agent, Oliver burst onto the scene to start 14 games for the San Diego Chargers. He ended up running for over 580 yards and also caught 36 balls. Those numbers may not sound all that impressive on paper, but it was the way he played that jumped […]

Why Adidas is hesitant to give Andrew Wiggins a signature shoe

Signature shoes are reserved for the highest-profile athletes in the NBA — only 16 players have a signature model. So when it’s time for Adidas to re-sign Andrew Wiggins when his large rookie shoe contract expires, they’ll have to decide if he meets that criteria. Adidas reportedly has a “strong hesitation” to giving Wiggins a […]

You thought these NBA prospects would be busts. They turned into stars

Following a prompt from Celtics Blog, we wanted to know who your biggest busts were: players you thought for sure were headed for stardom but fell way below your expectations. It’s simple: There’s a lull in the NBA. Free agency is all but over, and aside from pending Kyrie Irving and Carmelo Anthony trades, we […]
