Here’s an interesting look at the rise of flag football, and the attention and money it receives…

Ass Team Of The Week: You And The Philadelphia Eagles Will Be Trampled By The Stampede Of Time And Left For Dead Ass Team Of The Week: You And The Philadelphia Eagles Will Be Trampled By The Stampede Of Time And Left For Dead

Here is an easy prediction to make: the Philadelphia Eagles are certainly not going to repeat as Super Bowl champions. It’s very unlikely, at this point, that they will even return to the playoffs. Their 4-6 record relays that information plainly enough, but the 48-7 loss they suffered at the hands of the Saints on…

Samson Ebukam Stole The Show Samson Ebukam Stole The Show

Specifically, it was second-year linebacker Samson Ebukam—a fourth-round pick…

Was That The Future Of Football? Was That The Future Of Football?

“I might need a couple beverages to relax tonight,” Sean McVay said after the Rams’ 54-51 win over the Chiefs in one of the most satisfying and exhilarating football games ever played. Maybe a cigarette? MNF viewers are walking around this morning like we got laid last night, and you know what? I’m not able to look…

Well That Was Exhilarating As Shit Well That Was Exhilarating As Shit

The Rams and the Chiefs played the highest-scoring contest in the history of Monday Night Football tonight, a 54–51 barnburner in which every play seemed to go for 18 yards, and every third play seemed to produce a touchdown. It was maybe the most exciting football game I’ve ever watched. Did you miss it to watch…

We’ve got controversy in the Illinois High School Association Class 7A football playoffs, folks. Two controversies, in fact. One is a fairly mundane case of disorganization in high school football. The other involves costuming and bad parenting and a lawsuit, and a father boasting on social media about how he may have…

Lamar Jackson Is Way More Fun Than Joe Flacco Lamar Jackson Is Way More Fun Than Joe Flacco

After half a season of waiting, we finally got our first full dose of Lamar Jackson in the NFL on Sunday. With starting QB Joe Flacco injured, the first-round pick and former Heisman winner at Louisville battled past a stomach illness to take advantage of the opportunity, leading the now 5-5 Ravens to a 24-21 win over…

This Shit Is Corny This Shit Is Corny

You may have seen a quote from Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. going around this morning, about the New York Giants’ chances of winning the rest of their games and making the playoffs at 9-7. “Six games left, it’s really only crazy until you do it,” Beckham told reporters, as if he were in a movie.

Malcolm Jenkins Flipped Off Sean Payton After Alvin Kamara Burned Him

The Saints spent their entire Sunday afternoon embarrassing the Eagles, but the most humiliating moment might have come early in the fourth quarter of the eventual 48-7 win. Up by 31 already and facing 4th-and-7 just outside of field goal range, the Saints elected to go for it. Drew Brees hit Alvin Kamara on a fly…

Khalil Mack Unleashed The Long Arm Of Destruction Again Khalil Mack Unleashed The Long Arm Of Destruction Again

Washington Needs A Quarterback. I Know A Guy! Washington Needs A Quarterback. I Know A Guy!

If you saw what happened to Alex Smith’s leg, you didn’t need the updates. Watching the video was enough to tell you that his tibia and fibula were broken, and that he needed immediate surgery, and that he’s out for the year. It was one of the more gruesome football injuries in recent memory, and came 33 years to the…

On a third-and-nine play in the third quarter, Kareem Jackson and J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans sacked Washington quarterback Alex Smith in the backfield for a big loss.

Rookie offensive lineman Quenton Nelson had a highlight go viral this week that featured him hilariously yelling as he drove right into Jaguars linebacker Barry Church. Apparently, during the height of its popularity, the video made its way to the desk of the league’s head office. The NFL announced Friday that it was…

How Much Longer Does Mike McCarthy Have Left? How Much Longer Does Mike McCarthy Have Left?

On its face, losing by three points on a Thursday at one of the most notoriously difficult stadiums to play in as a visiting team isn’t cause to sound the alarm. But after the Packers went down against the Seahawks, 27-24, head coach Mike McCarthy’s grip on his job is looking more and more tenuous, as—once again—the…

Matt Patricia Made The Lions Practice In The Snow For No Good Reason Matt Patricia Made The Lions Practice In The Snow For No Good Reason

The Bill Belichick coaching tree has produced a bounty of dullards and faux hardmen, and it’s beginning to look like former Patriots defensive coordinator and first-year Lions head coach Matt Patricia is the juiciest offering yet.

The Ravens Might Actually Have To Start Robert Griffin III On Sunday The Ravens Might Actually Have To Start Robert Griffin III On Sunday

Hidden behind the cloud of an injured starting quarterback was a brief glimmer of hope for the Ravens on Wednesday. With Joe Flacco missing practice because of an injured hip, rookie Lamar Jackson became the likeliest candidate to take the helm of Baltimore’s offense on Sunday against the Bengals. Jackson says he’ll…

You Wouldn't Want To Work With Draymond Green, Either You Wouldn't Want To Work With Draymond Green, Either

They have been historically great for years and are, when at their unholy apex, probably the most beautiful and terrifying basketball machine ever constructed, but the Golden State Warriors are kind of a corny bunch of dudes. This is nothing on them, really: it’s not their job to be interesting, or anyway it’s not as…
