Doing It With His Dez On

    ESPN has been milking the Dez Bryant controversy more than anyone. And not in a good way. But our good friend Michael Tillery has a different take. He’s taken the gloves off and throwing haymakers.

Head Hunters

    The violent hits continue on a weekly basis in the NFL. As Chargers’ wide receiver Malcom Floyd said to a group of reporters Monday, “It’s part of the game.”
    Unfortunately, it is. Football is a game of violence. Still, hits like the 1 Washington’s Brandon Meriweather delivered on Green Bay’s James Starks shouldn’t be tolerated. Anytime a player launches himself into another 1 helmet 1st he should pay for the repercussions, whether by suspension or a big hit to his wallet. For Meriweather and his stupidity, the blow cost him with his own concussion and he will be out for Week 3.
    Writers Erik Brady and Gary Mihoces deliver a thoughtful piece. I make some very small contributions with a few quotes from Floyd.

No Shit Sherlock?

    Reminds me of my field and of course life in general for black folks.
    African American coaches rarely get a 2nd chance, unlike their white counterparts, to land gigs as head coaches or coordinators in the NFL after they are fired, according to a study. What else is new?

Thug Nation

    Though they aren’t as ruthless and heartless as some of their good friends in the Republican Party, Roger Goodell and the NFL owners are close. Even before the players got a chance to see the proposed collective bargaining agreement, the owners paraded in front of the cameras to pat themselves on the back. Many in the media bought their line of crap and pressured the players to approve the deal.
    Not so fast.
