The Raiders have parted ways with guard Robert Gallery, who was regarded as one of the bigger draft disappointments in Raiders history. But was he the biggest?

Congratulations to Vernon Gholston who officially became one of the game’s biggest draft busts after being released by the Jets on Wednesday.

Steelers WR Hines Ward is in for “Dancing with the Stars,” joining the cast of has beens and who is thats which includes Ralph Macchio, Kendra Wilkinson and Chris Jericho (the favorite to take the thing). But who would you have rather seen?

I have a bone to pick with the combine. What a seemingly useless exercise. Sure it’s fun to see guys in shorts run the 3-cone drill, compete in the bench press and exhibit their hops. But does any of this really translate to football?

Who is the best basketball player in the NFL? Let’s put it to the test.

The biggest story in sports this week is the return of The Rock to the WWF. The news sent waves around the world, not only was The Rock trending on Twitter, but so was his alter-ego Dwayne Johnson. That, my friends, takes star power.
And it got me thinking, is there anybody in the NFL who carries the Rock’s charisma? Some might say Chad Ochocinco, but that doesn’t really work. Mainly because The Rock was once a champion.

Vikings DE Ray Edwards told the Pioneer Press that he plans to pursue a career in boxing if there is a lockout. And the good news for Edwards is that he will only need to last about 40 seconds in the ring to be considered a bigger success than Johnnie Morton.

As the 2010 NFL season has officially closed, I am comforted by the words of the immortal Stork who, when Delta was kicked off campus in “Animal House” uttered, “Well, what the hell we s’posed to do, you moron?

The Steelers have the most Super Bowl championships of any franchise and, not surprisingly, some of the most iconic moments in the history of the game.

Here is something surprising: NFL players don’t always sire the best NFL sons. There have been a lot of sons of former players who have received the hype, but failed to deliver the goods. But who takes the crown when it comes to NFL blue bloods?

The race for top quarterback in Steelers history is a two-person race. If it is even that close. But trying to fill those last four spots, that is where you earn your money. Without further ado, here is the top six quarterbacks in Steelers history.
Posted: Tuesday, February 1st, 2011 | Adam Rank Tags: Pick Six, Aaron Rodgers, Arnie Herber, Bart Starr, Brett Favre, Don Majkowski, Green Bay Packers, Lynn Dickey
The lineage of the Packers quarterbacks is rather impressive — a pair of Hall of Famers, another certain to be joining them in Canton, and another who is just starting to carve out his place in NFL history. But when it comes to the Packers and Titletown, there is really only one way to judge these quarterbacks.

In some respects, Media Day has become an industry self-congratulatory event, where members of the media jostle for attention to try to show just how clever they can be. Kind of like the Golden Globes.
Here is a look at the top six moments.

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.

Some rivalries come and go, but bitter divisional rivalries always continue to fester.
