New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan and San Francisco 49ers GM Trent Baalke were among those in attendance for Clemson’s pro day Thursday. All 32 NFL teams were on hand to watch 14 players work out indoors on FieldTurf. Here are some of the key workouts from day: Tajh Boyd, QB: Boyd (6-0 3/4, 221 pounds) kept all of his numbers from the combine. He’s fallen off a little bit in the last few months, but he had a very strong pro day, looking good moving around and completing the ball. I think he improved his draft position and has a good chance to be a second-day pick. Bashaud Breeland, CB: Breeland (5-11 3/8, 188 pounds) supposedly didn’t bring […]

With 85th Academy Awards happening this weekend, some of the best “true” and fictional stories told on the silver screen from last year will be honored with miniature gold statues of a naked man. What an honor! And with the NFL offseason just starting to ramp up at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis this weekend, we thought it’d be fun to take advantage of this down time to look into the future and see what remarkable story-lines we could be in line for next season. Last season featured a number of Hollywood-worthy tales, from the Harbaugh Bowl to the rookie sensations at quarterback to Ray Lewis going out on top and on and on. Below are a few highly speculative […]

By: Robert Karpeles As the last few weeks of the NFL season come to an end, it’s important to keep in mind that the most exciting football hasn’t even been played yet. Yes, the best is still to come and with good games come even better storylines. You know, the one’s about the Jets sneaking in at the last second, quarterback controversies in San Francisco and the health of the quarterback in our nations’ capital. We live for football. But we also live for the great stories that stay with us after the games have been played. Here our nine things we hope for nine teams with playoff potential: Jets – Make the playoffs. Please, these guys just have to […]

It’s week 13 and the playoff picture is becoming clearer, as the Falcons, Patriots, Texans, and Broncos all clinched a playoff appearance. What isn’t becoming clearer is the quarterback situation in New York. Or how in the world Adrian Peterson healed from his ACL surgery so quickly and continues to ravage opposing defenses. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s get to the Unexpected (and expected) from week 13.

The Chargers defense has played a single high coverage 76% (104/170) of the opponents drop backs. They will also be forced to stack the box due to RB Doug Martin’s presence.
Patrick Willis discusses Alex Smith‘s strong play over the past 22 games.
The Cowboys pulled out an ugly win yesterday over the Bucs, the kind of gritty, hard-fought battle that allows you to learn about yourself. For sure, they learned about their quarterback, though it’s something they already knew. Tony Romo is a tough dude. Yesterday, he was the symbol of toughness, rising again and again despite being brutalized by the Bucs defense. He was sacked and belted, hit helmet-to-helmet and flung to the ground. He kept getting up and was perfect in the fourth quarter despite all that. Teammates were impressed, and they took notice. “Some quarterbacks who take hits like that don’t want to go back,” Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said. “Not him.” The Cowboys fed off their quarterback. The […]
With training camp in full swing, we’re flying around the country to bring you all sorts of interesting (and non-interesting) stuff. Let’s pause this Sunday morning to embrace routine with our nine really random things. So, what’s been up? 1. NFL Training Camp is only a few days old, but already something fantastic has happened. I’ll say right now, we’ll be hard-pressed to find something better during the entire months of July and August. What was it? Tim Tebow ran shirtless in the rain. Our friend Bob Glauber of Newsday captured it brilliantly, showing the world the most highly publicized backup in history playing for the skins team. It rained at Jets camp, Tebow needed to go inside and he […]
Another day, another new city. We spent the last two nights in San Jose, which is right by Santa Clara, which is actually where the 49ers play despite being still called the San Francisco 49ers. Got all that? Me too. Anyway, now we’re in San Diego, preparing for tomorrow’s live practice that’ll be shown on NFL Network. I can’t lie, I’m excited for that. The Chargers are one of those teams that I’d imagine are fun to watch work out, mainly because of the talent and athleticism they’ve always shown. So, should be fun. But before we do that…. Here is one of my hits from 49ers camp yesterday on NFL Network. Some highlights of the trip to 49ers practice? […]
Well, this was a pretty wild leg of my 2012 Training Camp experience. And we’re only getting warmed up. From Charlotte on Wednesday to New York City to cover the NFL’s Total Wellness initiative on Thursday to San Francisco for 49ers practice today at around 2:30 p.m. Pacific. Whew. Want a quick recap of how we got here? Here we go… – I’d never been to the league office in New York, and I came away really impressed. I can’t be alone in that. It’s all football. An obscenely and awesomely large TV (right) showing NFL Network, a beautiful Super Bowl ring display with every ring, even a nice NFL shield on the conference table. It was new and sparkling. I even […]
