  1. No Hernandez is not representative of all football players in that he may have actually killed someone where the average player just threatens to kill people so he can get to the thing he wants or have his own way. It doesn’t happen to me anymore cause, well, I will chop your head off.)

  2. Mike Freeman and everyone criticizing Brian Cushing’s comments that JJ Watt “could” become the best defensive player in history are stupid.

    He didn’t say he WAS the GOAT, he didn’t say he WAS GOING TO BE, he said he COULD be. He had one of the greatest seasons ever for a defensive player so its not out of the realm of possibility that that COULD happen.

    I know that other than Aaron Hernandez its slow news time in the NFL but people need to take a chill pill.

  3. I never would have imagined that John Sullivan would be one of, if not the, best center in the NFL after watching him in college. Granted, it’s a team sport & ND horrible in his final season 2007. That was the worst team in ND history and I distinctly remember Sully sailing shotgun snaps over the QBs head. Kudos to him for overcoming an underwhelming college career and becoming one of the best at his position in the NFL.

  4. Kurt Becker as a high school coach is Great. I remember this guy as the enforcer. He would kick some serious ass when he played for the Bears.. I can remember his attitude as being one bad ass dude. I’m sure he’ll be successful. Good for him and the high school ….

  5. For the most part it seems that NFL Players are generally nice, caring and good people. Every once in a while you’ll see a bad apple fall from the tree, but its a pretty rare occasion.

  6. Packer fans don’t necessarily want to see “extra hungry” used in a story involving B.J. Raji.
