Joe Flacco’s brother catches passes from Jaguars scout

Representatives from 12 NFL teams gathered at the Star Hill Family Athletic Center in Tolland, Conn. for the University of New Haven’s pro day. The noteworthy participant of the pro day — which was held indoors on FieldTurf — was the brother of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, UNH tight end Michael Flacco. Flacco (6-foot-4 5/8, 251 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.74 and 4.78 seconds. He had a 9-foot-7 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.38 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.21 seconds. He performed 14 reps of 225 on the bench press. He was not able to do the vertical jump because the facility did not have a standard. Flacco only played one season […]

Jamaal Charles to see lighter workload

In today’s Three and Out: Jamaal Charles could have a lighter load this season while the Ravens could do a little more running.

Report: Cecil Shorts expected to go on IR

In today’s Three and Out: Cecil Shorts is finished, while Joe Flacco and Willis McGahee should be back on the field.

Jets go with Geno … for now …

Jets show lukewarm commitment to Smith: By now, you’ve surely heard that Geno Smith will be starting under center for the Jets against the Buccaneers in Week 1. Rex Ryan said the team isn’t committed to Smith beyond the opener. Well, that’s certainly reassuring. Whether the reason behind this decision is because Mark Sanchez’s shoulder is still healing really isn’t relevant. What is relevant is you shouldn’t have either Smith or Sanchez anywhere near your fantasy roster. The Jets offense is a mess from top to bottom, and it’s not easy to envision where their point production will come from. Maybe Smith’s game will evolve and develop after he gains some real in-game experience, but for now, he belongs on […]

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta to miss 2013 season

Vikings would like to lessen Peterson’s workload

Best Picture: Hollywood-worthy NFL stories for 2013

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 […]

The NFL “Goat Guide” for championship weekend

Year after year, when a team loses a big game the fans, and sometimes players, anoint a scapegoat, or more simply a goat, to carry the blame. Let’s take a look at the 2011 goats, and who might steal their crown in 2012.

The Unexpected (and expected) for the divisional round: Kaepernicking is the new Tebowing

The elite eight in the NFL have now been whittled down to four. But before we can look ahead to championship weekend, we need to look at what was unexpected (and expected) from the divisional playoffs.

Fantasy Post Mortem: Airing of Grievances

If you fine folks have followed along, you know I received a Festivus miracle last week when the Tennessee Titans defense scored 18 points (thank you, Mark Sanchez) to secure the win against Matt “Money” Smith. I ultimately fell short in that league (more on those circumstances in a moment). I went 2-2 on Championship Weekend, as I again took out “Money” in our NFL.com Experts League. So I’m stuck in kind of limbo, fantasy purgatory similar to the finale of “Lost.” But two championships is pretty cool. And to fight off my NFL Fantasy Live peers for the second time in three seasons is pretty cool, too. Moving on, it should be noted so many fantasy football championships were […]

“You can’t handle the truth!” 5 truths NFL teams need to hear

As the season draws to a close, many teams are left searching for answers as they prepare to watch the playoffs from home. But what many teams really need, is a heavy dose of the truth as they look toward the 2013 season. In honor of the 20th anniversary of A Few Good Men, here are five teams that are entitled to know the truth about themselves, but just might not be able to handle it.

Fantasy Post Mortem: This is why you start Calvin Johnson

You’ve heard this before, but this is why you always play your studs. Calvin Johnson has led the world this season in being tackled at the 1-yard line. No, seriously. Elias passed along this note before the start of NFL Fantasy Live on Sunday which said Megatron had been tackled at the 1-yard line after four of his catches. And each time, the Lions ran the ball in each time, and did not go to Johnson.
