Cleveland Browns earn praise for Shelton and Erving picks
isports web - almost 2 years
The Cleveland Browns finally get it! After years of whiffing on big name skill position players, the Browns finally addressed their needs and drafted top-tier prospects at their positions. From the start of the rumors of Cleveland wanting to trade up to get Mariota, I had a sick feeling in my stomach. Face it, last year’s team wasn’t in a “one year away” situation, it just didn’t make sense that they would want to give up quality picks in a loaded draft away when you just took a big name quarterback in the first round in last year’s draft. Manziel didn’t do particularly well in the games he started last season. (Understatement of the year) But in such a small sample size I don’t think that means the team should give up on him as a starting quarterback. Ray Farmer now looks great just by doing the simple thing and staying put and addressing obvious holes on the roster. Danny Shelton: 12th overall pick With the selection of Danny Shelton, the Browns’ run defense can only get better. ...

NFL Week 8 Football Picks
Huffington Post - over 3 years
While one wouldn't seriously suggest making one's Week 8 NFL picks using a dartboard, football predictions for the 2013 season have proven best made using the SAT method: make your choice and don't second-guess yourself by referring to facts. Okay, maybe that last part isn't recommended when filling in the circles that will determine one's collegiate future. However, this is the NFL season when sticking with the generally acknowledged better team has held true -- the recent Jets win notwithstanding. So, stop stressing and concentrate on getting the most enjoyment out of your Sunday (and Thursday and Monday) viewing experience. Those of us who love football need to pause and remember with gratitude Titans owner Bud Adams, one of the founders of the AFL, and longtime Oilers coach Bum Phillips. Both gentlemen passed away in their 90's last week. Mr. Adams made arrangements in his will for the team to remain in the family and Mr. Phillips' contributions continue through his son Wade, defe ...

The Most Hated Giants In Recent Memory
Bleeding Green Nation - over 4 years
5. This slot belongs to Michael Strahan. Honestly, he gave the Eagles fits for YEARS. The battles between him and Runyan are now considered legendary, unfortunately, Strahan got the better of that match up a lot. It's actually kind of hard to hate Strahan because he was really good and had an entertaining personality. The Gap also TRULY hated the Eagles. I remember my friend saw him at some event and he goes "hey Strahan, take it easy on my boy Runyan next game." Michael's response was a truly "HELL NOOO, God No." 4. Plaxico Burress has to be #4. I remembered when the Giants signed him I was like they over paid for an over rated WR. Unfortunately, he really came into his own as a Giant. And for whatever reason Sheldon Brown really struggled against tall WRs and this was one of the times that Sheldon was routinely beat. I'll never forget the week 2 game in 2006 where Sheldon caught the game winning TD over Sheldon Brown. That game vamped up the rivalry 10 fold. 3. Jere ...

Barbara Bruno: NFL Game Picks: Predicting Every Week 4 Contest
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
Amidst surprising and never-to-be-seen-again jubilation that the NFL/Referee lockout is over, 32 football squads must still prepare for Week 4 of the NFL season. That preparation now involves trying to shut the barn door on dangerously aggressive play as the league hopefully pulls back from the Wild West version of the NFL. Quote of the Week: "The game [was] going back to the 60's and the Kardashians [were] refereeing it." - Cris Collinsworth on Showtime's Inside the NFL Thursday Night Football Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens. While most of us wouldn't wish a trip to the Purple Hole on our worst enemy (well, maybe our worst), fans who think that Cleveland will be clobbered are in for a surprise.

Season in Review: Kyle Rudolph's Best and Worst Games in 2011
Daily Norseman - over 4 years
Let's break up all the Percy Harvin talk a bit, shall we? -Chris ESPN called 2011 "The Year of the Quarterback." While it's hard to argue that a focus on quarterbacks was wrong, one could hardly complain if ESPN had instead dubbed it the "Year of the Tight End." Yes, quarterback records were broken left and right, but the evolution in the game almost made that shift predictable. It was the tight end position, rather, that has evolved the most in recent years. And surprisingly so. Called to block, catch, and even run on occasion, the tight end is the most versatile and ambiguous position in the NFL. As the Vikings evolve towards multiple tight-end sets in Musgrave's offense, it's important to see what can be expected of the tight ends on the Vikings' roster. In the 2011 season, we saw two tight ends break Kellen Winslow's 1980 record of 1290 yards (Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski), one tight end break Tony Gonzalez's and Vernon Davis' touchdown record of 13 (Gronkowski, wi ...

Warren Sapp out at Inside the NFL
Awful Announcing - almost 5 years
Showtime's "Inside the NFL" has announced that Warren Sapp won't be back for this season after the network failed to renew his contract. Sapp came under fire last month on the NFL Network, his primary employer, when he outed Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey as the snitch in bountygate. After that was debunked, Sapp's appearances on the network dried up quite a bit. The pre-emptive move by Showtime to not bring him back for next year can't be good news for his future on the NFL Network, which is still up in the air. Sapp's contract expires in August, before the NFL season kicks off, and I imagine that the league would want their on-air personality lineup set in stone by then. But if you're a huge Sapp fan, don't fret. You can see him this summer on the Fox reality dating show "The Choice!" Maybe if that show works out well for Sapp, he'll have a new post-analyst career lined-up. With all of the baggage surrounding him following the Shockey allegations, and his bankruptcy proceed ...

The Best and Worst NFL Draft of All Time
G Men HQ - almost 5 years
I was asked a question recently about what would constitute a successful draft for the New York Giants this year, so I started to think about past drafts and what made them successful or not.  Here the Best and Worst from my list….as it applies to entire draft classes for a team.  There are certainly individual picks that boggle the mind further, but those are for another day. The Worst: Too easy here, The New Orleans Saints in 1999 traded away every pick they had in this draft and a 1st and 3rd rounder the following year to acquire Ricky Williams at #5 overall.  This is not an indictment of Williams, but to trade away that amount of picks for one player that never won you a championship must be considered a bust.  Maybe the only saving grace for the Saints was that Washington, although getting such players as Champ Bailey, Jon Jansen, and LaVar Arrington, and winning the division title in 1999, didn’t return to the playoffs until 2005.  This is quite clearly the worst overall draft ...

Warren Sapp Is Prepared For Jeremy Shockey To Sue Him
Sports Grid - almost 5 years
When Warren Sapp came out and said Jeremy Shockey was the one who blew the whistle on the Saints’ bounty system, both Shockey himself and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he was wrong. So that didn’t go so well – oh, and also Sapp filed for bankruptcy earlier this month and is probably done as an NFL Network analyst. So a lot of things aren’t going Sapp’s way – and he’s prepared in case another thing goes wrong, too. Specifically, he’s ready for Shockey to sue him, says TMZ. (The site said Sapp added Shockey to a list of potential creditors, as part of his bankruptcy filing.) Presumably, this is what Sapp thinks might happen if he doesn’t come out and apologize for the whole “labeling Shockey a snitch” thing – and if the time Shockey posted a text message exchange with Sean Payton to his Twitter account, in which Payton said he was sure Shockey hadn’t provided the bounty leak, taught us anything, it’s that Shockey is desperate to set the record straight. Even so, though, it’s no ...

And the winner is .... 2012 draft crush revealed
The Sacramento Bee - almost 5 years
I went into the Maine woods last week in search of peace, solitude and a draft crush. I emerged with poison ivy in the webbing of my fingers (it itches like the dickens) and a Stanford tight end clawing at my heart. Coby Fleener, please accept this metaphorical rose, for you are the 2012 Draft Crush (Wait several minutes for applause to end). Before I get into Fleener's merits, let's address a reason why the 49ers should not draft him should he be available at pick No. 30: They don't need him. The 49ers have perhaps the best tight end in the NFL in Vernon Davis and another very, very good one in Delanie Walker. Walker is the tight that moves around the formation -- in the backfield, on the line of scrimmage, as a wideout -- on various plays the same way Fleener did at Stanford. This, of course, is how Fleener would project for the 49ers, who run the same offense Stanford runs. That is, the 49ers already have two tight ends that are better than the best tight end on mo ...

Warren Sapp Is Broke, Probably Out Of A Job
Manolith - almost 5 years
Warren Sapp, the retired defensive tackle who once dominated the NFL’s best offensive lineman, has been on quite a run lately. During the “bountygate” scandal involving the New Orleans Saints being punished for paying their players to injure opponents, Sapp took to Twitter to “out” former Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey as the snitch who turned the tide in the investigation. Shockey denied that he snitched and nothing else ever came of Sapp’s claims, apart from him being removed from his on-air role at NFL Network. Now, it looks like Sapp is done as a television analyst for good. According to the guys at The Big Lead, the NFL Network hasn’t officially fired Sapp, but they won’t put him back on the air and they won’t renew his contract when it expires this summer. Sapp was making a reported salary of $540,000 per year at his NFL Network gig and he made millions during his playing career. Those numbers make the last bit of Sapp news all the more shocking: he’s apparently bankrupt. Ac ...

    More Details Hide Details
    On July 21, 2008, the Giants agreed to trade Shockey to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for second and fifth-round picks in the 2009 NFL Draft.
    More Details Hide Details He attempted to start the relationship with his new team on a good note, telling the Associated Press shortly after that trade, "The Saints have a lot of weapons, starting with Drew Brees, and I look forward to joining my teammates at training camp. This will be a fun year." In his first game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he had 6 receptions for 54 yards. After three games with the Saints, Shockey had a sports hernia and sat for 5 weeks.
    Rumors surfaced before the 2008 NFL Draft that the Giants were looking to trade Shockey.

But it was obvious that Shockey was upset during the team's minicamp in June. While teammates practiced, Shockey stayed in the locker room, much to the dismay of head coach Tom Coughlin.

After Shockey's season-ending injury, the Giants went on to win the NFC title and beat the previously undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

Shockey declined to participate in several Giants team celebrations, including a White House tribute for the new Super Bowl champions and the team's blue carpet ring ceremony.
    On December 16, 2007, in week 15 of the season, while playing the Washington Redskins, Shockey suffered a fractured fibula and damage to his ankle.

    Shockey was selected 14th in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the New York Giants.
    More Details Hide Details He quickly thrived in the NFL, receiving the inaugural Diet Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year award, and being named to the Pro Bowl in four of his first five seasons (2002, 2003, 2005, and 2006). He was one of the focal points in the Giants offensive passing attack. Possessing great athletic abilities to run routes and make crucial blocks, Shockey is equally known for his sometimes brash comments on other players and the media and for his antics off the field. During week 3 of the 2006 NFL season, he commented on a loss against Seattle by saying "We got outplayed, and we got outcoached. Write that down." Shockey apologized for the comment after speaking with head coach Tom Coughlin.
    In 2002, Shockey said in a radio interview that he hoped there were no gay players in the NFL. "If I knew there was a gay guy on my college football team, I probably wouldn't, you know, stand for it," he told Howard Stern, adding, "I think, you know, they're going to be in the shower with us and stuff, so I don't think that's gonna work.
    More Details Hide Details That's not gonna work, you know?" He later told the New York Daily News, "I guess I do regret saying it. I didn't think anyone was going to make a big deal out of it. I'm not prejudiced against anybody's beliefs or what they do in their off time. I do regret saying something like that. Whatever I did to offend people, I apologize. I'm not prejudiced in any way." A year later, New York (magazine) reported that he had mocked then-Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells as a "homo," a comment he later denied making. A New York Giants team spokesman later claimed Shockey had merely been quoting a friend.

    Age 20
    Having reached the status of national champion and All-American, Shockey declared himself eligible for the NFL Draft following the 2001 season.
    More Details Hide Details Shockey was interviewed about his time at the University of Miami for the documentary The U, which premiered December 12, 2009 on ESPN.
