Sports writers willfully missed Canseco and the birth of the steroids era. They gleefully overlooked the McGwire/Sosa arms race. They myopically focused on Barry Bonds,because he was churlish to them, while they romanticized the Red Sox winning the two steroids augmented sluggers (David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez) who powered the race and were accompanied by [...]
Peyton Manning didn’t get bulging disks in his neck mowing the lawn and four surgeries later he’s leading a new team to a familiar place: the playoffs. Steve McNair was never healthy and had considered retiring. A young Donovan McNabb hopped around on a broken ankle for most of a game where he threw 4 [...]
Chip Kelly was just a flirt with the NFL and will remain the Oregon Duck Whisperer. Good.
really. Someone actually wrote that garbage. A guy who should be named Rick Reilly Jr narrates a video in which he decides to walk right past the assertion that Ray Lewis has equally the same amount of homages to Jesus Christ and Tony Montana in his living room. That needs to be reconciled 1st if you [...]
Eagles are reportedly hot on Chip Kelly, and will interview Broncos Coach Mike McCoy. I’m for Broncos OC Mike McCoy. Any guy that can make offenses work with Orton, Tebow or Peyton Manning can coach.. Also, I would hope McCoy would be cool with having a strong GM, not a co-signer GM that basically launders [...]
An article jumps to a dubiouys conclusion when reviewing weight gain of college football players between their last year in high school and first year of college: 4. I’m also sure of what an SEC strength and conditioning coach told me is another confounder, and I swear this will be the saddest thing you hear [...]
Garrett Reid was on the Philadelphia Eagles strength and conditioning staff. When he died of an apparent drug overdose with a bunch of syringes and vials of an unnamed drug in his room, a bunch of people guessed steroids. Well they were right. The amounts Reid had in the room was the amount that when possessed would [...]
Goodell has a lot more PR background than Tagliabue has and it creeps into his operations roles far too much. That is now evident in this case.
We won this weekend! What does that mean? We lead the league in over the top celebrations. OMG WE won a f*cking game! YESS! YEeeeeeees! Wooooo! Eagles lead the league in vegetarian cuisine! Eagles lead the league in clean energy (they actually look pretty cool…saw them at Maryland @ Temple game earlier this year) Eagles last [...]
Josh Brent made an awful decision to drive drunk with his friend Jerry Brown in his passenger seat. This was made worse by his decision to speed while he was drunk and his friend was in his passenger seat. The accident is his fault. His friend and teammate is dead because of him (regardless of [...]
I think in the end, Andy Reid is a good coach who in some way is trying to salvage something out of this season for everyone. Playing time for players he drafted. Good tape for coaches he recruited into this mess. Jim Washburn calling Juan Castillo “Juanita” in meetings is workplace harassment, it’s sexist, extremely [...]
A gun quickens an arguments most violent conclusion. Costas and Whitlock are very right there. I would argue that your rationalizations speak to how numb we are in this society to gun violence and murder. We’ve come to accept our insanity. We’d prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that [...]
In Tokyo this week. Had to watch my Eagles find ways to lose to the Dallas Cowboys in Hooters in Akasaka-Mitsuke: Despite all of this, the Eagles lost their eighth straight game on Sunday night, a streak that Philadelphia hasn’t seen since losing the first 11 games of the 1968 season. The Dallas Cowboys emerged victorious [...]
Sanchez benched for McElroy. Much to the crowd’s dismay, McElroy stood idly by on the sidelines as Sanchez scuffled through the first three quarters. And the more he struggled, the louder the “Mc-El-Roy” calls grew. But despite the boos for Sanchez, Ryan stayed with his starter. Sanchez’s poor play turned what should have been a [...]
