Jadeveon Clowney should be in Madden ’14

By | Feb 14, 2013

You’ve seen the hit (if you haven’t, watch). So, that dude is a year younger, a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier than me. Can you even imagine bumping into him in the halls? Probably feels like you’re casually getting run over by a house. An absolute mammoth human being. Would go number one in…

The Extra Point is back with a Super Bowl prediction

By | Feb 1, 2013

Haven’t blogged in a while and, honestly, I’ve missed this venting space. Tons of things happened in the sporting world while I was gone. People realized cycling is synonymous with drugs; people realized it’s hard to date a significant other if you’ve never met; and people realized that maybe they need to start looking at…

When news broke last week that St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams had paid players to injure specific opposing players during his years with the New Orleans Saints and Washington Redskins, I can’t say I was surprised.

Ah well

By | Nov 26, 2011

I have a confession to make: I missed Thanksgiving football this year. It’s not like I wasn’t looking forward to Green Bay-Detroit because I was. It’s not like I don’t have relatives just as into football as I am either because I most certainly do. It’s just that it was really kind of nice out…

Bye Bye Now

By | Oct 25, 2011

When you think about it, the idea of the bye week in football is pretty unique within sports. Oh sure hockey, basketball and baseball teams all have their days off. But that’s just it, they’re “days off.” No big deal is made about days off in sports because in a sport where teams frequently every…

The…
