  1. “A fondness for wrestling alligators and wild boars is part of Dolphins LB Channing Crowder’s profile.”
    That explains his spat with Rex Ryan.

  2. The Chargers are the best team in the AFC? Haven’t they been the best team in the AFC for like 6 straight years, every offseason? How’d that work out for them?

  3. Good thing for Crowder that none of those alligators or boars were TEs. He would have never caught them.
    He sucks as a LB, this is a non-story.

  4. A fondness for wrestling alligators and wild boars is part of Dolphins LB Channing Crowder’s profile
    CC’s next endeavor is to battle the most shifty, dangerous creature of all: Mike Florio.

  5. Chargers the best team in the AFC? WTF? I’m afraid the wheels have come off that wagon. I see them starting this season like they have most under Norv — well under .500 about 10 games in. Only this time they don’t pull out of the nosedive. They finish 7-9, don’t win the AFC West. Miss the playoffs altogether.
