    Report: NFL investigation has “zeroed in” on Patriots locker room attendant

    Last week, the NFL released a statement saying they were continuing their investigation into under-inflated footballs used by the Patriots during their AFC Championship game victory over the Colts to determine if the deflation was “the result of deliberate action” by the Patriots. Coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady both denied any knowledge of…

    Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett says there’s only one tight end in the NFL better than Rob Gronkowski: Martellus Bennett. Martellus, the Bears’ tight end, is Michael’s brother. So it’s probably safe to say that Michael is a little biased on that evaluation. “I think Gronkowski’s the second-best tight end. My brother’s first, obviously,” Michael…

  • newJosh Gordon Facing One-Year Ban
    Josh Gordon of the Cleveland Browns has failed an alcohol test and is now facing a likely one-year ban from the NFL. Yes, alcohol. Because of Gordon's previous positive drug tests and DUI arrests, he was not even allowed to drink alcohol. My response to stories like this used to be anger about how guys were wasting their talents, but I've learned over the last couple years that alcohol abuse is a lot more complicated than that. So now my reaction is just sadness. It's sadness that Josh Gordon can't beat these disease. I hope he can get the help he needs.read more

  • ESPN: Russell Wilson Following in Tom Brady's Footsteps
    "He just wins" is the most annoying thing someone can say about a quarterback, but the stats for Russell Wilson are too good to label him that way. Despite significant differences in how they play the position, Wilson's three-year start has been very similar to Tom Brady's first three years as a starter (2001-03). They both have an average rank of 10.3 in DVOA and DYAR (passing only) in those seasons. Fittingly, the Seahawks are looking to become the first repeat champion since the 2003-04 Patriots.read more

The television ratings, usually ahead of any NBA or Major League Baseball playoff game before the championship round, took a big dip for the second straight year according to Austin Karp of SportsBusiness Daily.The overnight ratings (wh…

    Somehow, we've turned Bill Belichick into a sympathetic figure

    PHOENIX – New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he was embarrassed about all the time he had to spend studying and discussing footballs after the AFC championship. He’s right. He’s likely not embarrassed for himself. He’s embarrassed over the insane overreaction to this deflate-gate controversy.Let’s get this out of the way so I can answer countless emails and tweets at once: I’m not a Patriots fan, I’m not from New England, I do not personally know Belichick and don’t really want to. I don’t care if the Patriots win or lose. They're just one of 32 teams to me.B…

"Then I moved past it, because it’s not serving me. What’s serving me is try to prepare for the game ahead. I’ll deal with whatever happens…

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — In a game with 1,063 combined yards of offense, it was a defensive play that was the highlight of the Pro Bowl.Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes — aka "Optimus Grimes" — was one of the few defenders who really showed up to play in the 32-28 Team Irvin over Team Carter game. J.J. Watt might have won defensive MVP honors, but Grimes' interception was ridiculous.Covering Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, Grimes never turned around to find the ball on a fade route in the end zone, instead playing the receiver. No problem — Grimes reacted to the ball whe…
