Biggest NFL Draft Bust Ever?

Now that the Broncos and their Executive VP of Football Operations John Elway have secured Peyton Manning’s services, Tim Tebow quickly became expendable.  Peyton told us that he “found what he was looking for”, Elway certainly got what he wanted…..extinction of Tebow-mania in Denver, but where did all this leave Tim Tebow?……….off to the Jets and the Big Apple……………exactly what he did NOT need!   It wasn’t Tebow’s fault that the coach that wanted and drafted him (Josh McDaniels) was fired by the Broncos.  The new Broncos coach (John Fox) was subsequently forced to overhaul his offensive scheme and find something that worked for Tebow.  The Broncos stood at 1-4 when Tebow took over.  Nobody, including John Elway, liked it.  But, Tebow brought back a winning mentality to Denver.  Sure, it didn’t look pretty all the time, but in only his second year as a pro, Tebow provided the spark…

Should Sean Payton be Banned from Football?

If you look at Bounty Gate from a legal and ethical perspective, it appears to me that there is more than sufficient justification to ban Sean Payton from professional football.  Yes, ban from professional football!  Yet many seem to feel that a one-year suspension from football may be too harsh a punishment for the New Orlean Saints coach.  That’s because they seem to focus on the “bounty” side of the equation while failing to fully understand and appreciate what Payton’s lying and cover-up does to diminish this great sport! The issue here is ethics and the legality behind Bounty Gate.  Legally, Sean Payton does not appear to have a leg to stand on.  The Saints staff showed total arrogance to the both the league’s policy and its investigation; as if they weren’t responsible to the National Football League or its policies or to Saint’s owner Tom Benson.  As Dan Daly…

The NFL “Bounty” System is NOT Anything New

Football is a game of physical intimidation, and the violence of football is why it’s America’s #1 sport. Whether it’s $10K bounty to knock out Brett Farve, $500 for a forced fumble, or just another decal to slap on your helmet, a “bounty” system for big hits at all levels of this sport has always existed in some form or another.   For a real laugh, somebody should interview Deacon Jones to get his thoughts on all the latest fuss surrounding the NFL “Bounty” System, better known as “Bounty-Gate”. That man had quarterbacks for lunch! However, with all the recent studies on concussions and related lawsuits, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s attention has now been aimed squarely on player safety. Believe it or not, this can be a good thing or a bad thing……..depending on how Goodell reacts. He tends to speak out of BOTH sides of his mouth, and he…

Most of the NFL Combine is a Waste of Time!

Since 1982 NFL coaches, scouts, and media converge (in the city of Indianapolis since 1987) for one week in late February to conduct what is known as “The World’s Longest Job Interview” aka. the NFL Combine. Players go through extensive medical examinations, are pummeled with monotonous questions, subject themselves to every imaginable agility drill, and are required to complete the infamous Wonderlic (Cognitive Ability) Test at the NFL Combine. By the way, how come no other sport uses the Wonderlic Test? And who determined that football is somehow the only sport that should require a minimum aptitude? Do you ever wonder if the NFL Combine is a waste of time?   If you happen to have the NFL Network channel, you can watch much of the weeks’  NFL Combine events unfold live, and plans are in the works for further event expansion and even fan interaction. Why? The drills and…

This much I do know…….whenever they say it’s NOT about the money, it’s ALL about the money.  Following several career-threatening neck surgeries, Peyton Manning sat out last season (and received $23M while doing so).  Come March 8th, if Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay doesn’t cut him, Peyton Manning will be due the tidy sum of $28M as a roster bonus. If Manning is cut, he will instantly become a free agent at 36.  He says he’s NOT retiring!  The Redskins, Browns, Seahawks, Jets, Dolphins, and yes the Tennessee Titans too are all waiting in the wings if the axe falls (I’m betting on the Dolphins since he owns a condo on South Beach Miami).  Peyton Manning’s doctors have cleared him to play, but Jim Irsay says the Colts’ doctors have not yet examined him. As everyone knows the Super Bowl was just played in Peyton’s town and in the…

It’s official, Commissioner Roger Goodell has instantly made the NFL Pro Bowl the most meaningless All-Star game in professional sports!  We should crown it now for what it is; the Twitter-Bowl. For the first time ever, players will be permitted to tweet during the game from computers (one on each sideline).  It looks like the Twitter Bowl will be a controlled NFL experiment. At halftime, while coaches and players are working hard to re-adjust elaborate game plans (yeah, right), personal mobile devices can be used to keep those tweets coming.  You might be interested to know that during the regular season, NFL policy prohibits player tweets 90 minutes prior to kickoff and not before all their post-game media obligations are fulfilled.  This “experiment” is just plain ridiculous. Recently, I was one of about 10,000 spectators at Tropicana Field for this year’s East-West Shrine Game, and was flabbergasted to see tweets…

 Peyton Manning’s future will be decided in the next few weeks.  Where will the legendary future hall-of-famer be working later this year.  What do you think the ideal team fit might be for Peyton Manning?  Or, is it time for Peyton Manning to retire from football and find a new gig?   Related articles Irsay calls Peyton Manning a “politician” (profootballtalk.nbcsports.com) On the Dolphins, Matt Flynn, and Peyton Manning (profootballtalk.nbcsports.com) It Appears Peyton Manning is Finished in Indianapolis (mediarelations.typepad.com)
