Apologies as that headline should come with a spoiler alert, but it’s hard to fathom that Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) was not the top NFL player turned actor of all-time. The guy chosen by the “Total Access” staff is pretty good. Great even.
Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Munchak is visiting the NFL Network studios on Wednesday, so it feels like a natural for a Pick Six. Perhaps, the six greatest Hall of Famers turned NFL head coaches. That sounds like a great list, but who is the next guy after the clear runaway, Mike Ditka?
Chuck Bednarik made fans of people of never even saw him play. Thanks, of course, to some of his notable quotes on NFL Films.
The announcement for the Pro Football Hall of Fame is kind of tricky because as we celebrate the current class, we have to talk about those who did not make it.
Aaron Rodgers is pretty good. Last week, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to have a passer rating in each of his first two playoff starts exceed 120.

The Twitterverse has spoken. Marshawn Lynch‘s touchdown run was the greatest of all time. The Seahawks upset of the Saints was the greatest of all time. The Pick Six is the greatest internet creation of all time. Alright, I might only be trending that last one. But let’s have some perspective.

You cannot blame Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh for considering a leap to the NFL. The allure of an NFL coaching gig can be very strong.
But sometimes the grass is not always greener, Jim. This is the kind of thinking that compelled McLean Stevenson to leave “M*A*S*H” to star in his own sitcom, “Hello, Larry”. Sometimes the best job is the one you don’t leave.

Patriots QB Tom Brady is bald. That’s right, bald. Or so the reports in the National Enquirer suggests (via the Detroit Free Press). Brady reportedly is a patient of the Leonard Hair Transplant Association in Cranston, R.I. Meaning Brady’s gorgeous locks are nothing more than a façade.
