Green Bay Packers A.J. Hawk prefers Johnny Utah to Shane Falco

Whoever is in the foursome with A.J. Hawk in next week’s American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe should be a little wary of the Packers linebacker, who recently showed he isn’t above shoving a friend into the water hazard.

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, on bounties and the NFC title game: “The NFL taught the entire league a lesson”

Much of the focus of the NFL’s bounty investigation has included talk of the 2009 NFC title game featuring the Saints and the Vikings. During that game, QB Brett Favre was repeatedly drilled, and he wound up limping from it. Unveiled yesterday was the NFL’s evidence that had Saints players and others pledging $35,000 to knock out Favre. Yikes. Our own Steve Wyche had a thorough look at all of this. Well today, after the Vikings’ walk-through, I talked with Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, who was on that team. We talked about plenty of things, including his knee, and a lot of our interview aired on NFL Total Access. There will also be an in-depth story on NFL.com Wednesday. But with […]

Adam Sandler: ‘Rex Ryan kills it’

Rex Ryan certainly wasn’t going to predict he’d win any awards for his performance in “That’s My Boy,” which hits theaters on June 15. But co-star Adam Sandler couldn’t heap enough superlatives on Ryan’s acting during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

Albert Pujols hit his first home run of the season. The Los Angeles Kings swept the Blues (we’re waiting for St. Louis to honor its obligation in a civic bet to send over its football team). And we got our first glimpse of some of the newest NFL stars. There is so much going on, let’s take a look at some of the top fantasy storylines.

Data Points: Brees in impressive company

Buried slightly among all the passing feats of Week 1 is the fact that Saints QB Drew Brees has now thrown at least one TD pass in 28 consecutive games. That puts him two games shy of the third-longest such streak in NFL history, the spot currently held by Hall of Famer Dan Marino. If Brees keeps his streak alive haflway through the season, he’ll reach Brett Favre‘s 36-game streak, which is second-best.
