Ex-Bills WR: There’s Nothing To Do In Buffalo But Fuck Ex-Bills WR: There’s Nothing To Do In Buffalo But Fuck

Jordan Matthews signed with the Eagles today. The receiver, who was with Philadelphia for the first three seasons of his NFL career, was signed to boost the team’s depleted receiving corps. Matthews spent last season with the Bills—the Eagles had traded him and a draft pick for cornerback Ronald Darby—and today told…

Why An Ex-Jets Great Wants Nothing To Do With The Jets Why An Ex-Jets Great Wants Nothing To Do With The Jets

Texas School Superintendent Gets Racist On Facebook About Deshaun Watson Texas School Superintendent Gets Racist On Facebook About Deshaun Watson

Lynn Redden, the superintendent of the Onalaska Independent School District in Onalaska, Texas, was caught being racist online when he commented “When you need precision decision making you can’t count on a black quarterback,” on a Facebook post about the Houston Texans’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.

Report: Finally, A Reason To Watch The Super Bowl! Report: Finally, A Reason To Watch The Super Bowl!

Variety and Us Weekly report that adult contemporary group Maroon 5 will be the halftime performers at February’s Super Bowl LIII (pronounced “leeeeeee”) in Atlanta, probably because Imagine Dragons was already booked as the NHL’s in-house band.

Big Ben, Leader Of Men Big Ben, Leader Of Men

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger explained to reporters this morning how a true leader sets an example for his teammates with a tireless work ethic.

Oh Good, Time For Patriots Fans To Get Mad At ESPN Again Oh Good, Time For Patriots Fans To Get Mad At ESPN Again

Those were good times, weren’t they? When that big ESPN report on a schism between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, driven in part by Brady’s shady nutrition “guru” Alex Guerrero, dropped right before the playoffs and set off rounds of denials and non-denials and recriminations, and a whole lot of screaming from…

NFL Hall Of Famers Are Already Backing Away From The Letter Demanding Better Retirement Benefits NFL Hall Of Famers Are Already Backing Away From The Letter Demanding Better Retirement Benefits

The names of 21 NFL greats are listed at the bottom of the letter announced today demanding health insurance and pensions for Hall of Famers. By definition it’s an impressive list, but it’s getting less impressive by the hour: both Kurt Warner and Jerry Rice have now publicly disavowed the letter’s specific demands…

Uber Driver Sues Jameis Winston Over Sexual Assault Uber Driver Sues Jameis Winston Over Sexual Assault

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is currently serving out the end of a three-game suspension set by the NFL for groping an Uber driver. The league’s investigation over the offseason concluded that Winston had “violated the Personal Conduct Policy by touching the driver in an inappropriate and sexual…

Michael Dickson Is As Cool As A Punter Can Be

The Seahawks tore it down this offseason, and now they’re 0-2, with a bad offensive line and a goddamn Schottenheimer for an offensive coordinator. But they have Michael Dickson as their punter, and that’s more fun than it may seem—and not just because Dickson knows how to drop kick.

Steelers Somehow Get More Dramatic After Antonio Brown Doesn't Show Up To Work Steelers Somehow Get More Dramatic After Antonio Brown Doesn't Show Up To Work

In addition to being winless and grouchy, Antonio Brown is absent. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports today that the Steelers receiver was nowhere to be found at the team’s facilities Monday. No wonder he had no media availability:

The Bears Are Going To Need More From Mitchell Trubisky At Some Point The Bears Are Going To Need More From Mitchell Trubisky At Some Point

The Bears beat the Seahawks 24-17 last night, and did so while looking like a team a few weight classes above their opponent. The defense, led by all-world linebacker Khalil Mack, was particularly impressive, getting into the backfield at will throughout the first half and keeping Seattle’s offense pinned in its own…

Willie Taggart Pleads For Patience After Florida State Gets Boatraced By Syracuse Willie Taggart Pleads For Patience After Florida State Gets Boatraced By Syracuse

The start of the Willie Taggart era in Tallahassee has been quite the shitshow. The Florida State Seminoles entered this season ranked 20th, yet three weeks into the season, they’re 1-2 and look like they’ll struggle to even make a bowl game. Jimbo Fisher’s final season with the Seminoles went poorly, and the start of…

Sunday Was Hell Day For Kickers Sunday Was Hell Day For Kickers

“Professional football placekicker” has to be a tough job. Either you make all your kicks and people think you’ve done what’s expected of you, or you miss one (or two! Or three or four!) and you get trashed and maybe fired.

Mike Zimmer On Why He Cut Kicker Daniel Carlson: "Did You See The Game?"

Being a kicker in the NFL sucks not only because everyone gets mad at you when you fuck up, but also because nobody ever respected you all that much in the first place. How else to explain Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer answering a question about why he cut kicker Daniel Carlson—who missed three field goals on Sunday,…

Frank Gore Has Been So Good For So Long Frank Gore Has Been So Good For So Long

Frank Gore was not supposed to be in the NFL for over a decade. He was not supposed to recover from tearing both of his ACLs and then both of his labrums to build a no-doubt Hall of Fame career, and yet here he is, still a big part of an offense at age 35, still running, and still setting records. With this eight-yard…

Antonio Brown Is Winless And Grouchy Antonio Brown Is Winless And Grouchy

The Steelers don’t need Le’Veon Bell around to continue with the infighting and grumpiness; they’ve got that covered. The day after Pittsburgh was beaten 42-37 at home by Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, a former Steelers flack said that Antonio Brown’s success was solely attributed to Ben Roethlisberger. The receiver…

The Skins Didn't Sell Out Their Home Opener Because They Stink The Skins Didn't Sell Out Their Home Opener Because They Stink

Fresh off admitting that their 200,000-person season ticket waiting list never actually existed, Washington hosted the Indianapolis Colts in their home opener yesterday. The team’s stated 50-year home sellout streak has long been bunk, but if there was ever a time to see a big crowd at a Skins game, a home opener…

Yes, The Browns Are Getting A New Kicker Yes, The Browns Are Getting A New Kicker

The Browns lost by three points in a game they missed eight points’ worth of kicks. A particularly painful loss even for a team that’s had a lot of them, and a miserable game for second-year kicker Zane Gonzalez. This is of no consolation to anyone involved, but it’ll be Gonzalez’s last game as a Brown.

This Is Who The Giants Are This Is Who The Giants Are

I don’t want to hear a single reader complain about having to watch the Giants in primetime. Buddy, I live here; I’m forced to watch them every week. And yes, based on this extensive firsthand knowledge, they absolutely are this bad.
