Ponder- 3 surgeries, Why I don't care.

As a redshirt junior in November 2009 Christian Ponder had a whale of a season going for him .  He was third in the country for yards per game.  A 68% completion percentage.  And then it happened. ...

DENIAL is not a river in Egypt

I have been trying to determine why fans are so upset about the Vikings selecting what they believe is a Franchise QB in the draft. The answer is pretty simple.  Many fans are still in denial that...

5 Quarterbacks in first 12 picks.

As I posted earlier Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning news is considered the best draft  prognosticator  over the last ten years. He doesn't evaluate players he simply uses his contacts with...

Peyton Manning is a free agent

As of yesterday at 6:00 PM Peyton Manning was made a free agent by the Federal Court's ruling that the lock-out was not legal and football should continue.  Now I suppose it's to much to hope but...

The Truth About The NFL Labor Dispute

With the NFL Labor situation basically being all there is to talk about, you can never have too many viewpoints on it.

NFL Owners finally show their true colors

Its reported that the owners planned the walk out of the last negotiating meeting. They previously stated that they wanted to bargain not go to court. Now they are suing the union for bargaining in bad faith. I guess the really are planning a lock-out. Although it makes no sense to me.

An Interesting Quarterback story

I keep thinking about the Miami Dolphins. In 1967 they drafted Bob Griese as the 4th overall pick in the draft.  He guided their team through 1979 with the benefit of Don Shula as the coach. The...

I always try to remember that I am not a football player.  Certainly not a coach or a scout. Just a fan. What I see on TV in no way allows me to truly evaluate a QB. But I do read.  And many have...

The Franchise Quarterback- How to Get One

  I have enjoyed the articles and comments concerning the QB myth.  Excuses why a team doesn't need to expend a high price and top pick on a  top level QB. False assumptions that a third round...

Confessions of a Sports Agent

This is a long detailed article by SI which details the payments to at least 30 players while they attended college.It also paints Mel Kiper in a very bad light. It strives to give the "dirty details" of the Sports Agent business. I highly recommend you read it if your interested in the inside details.
