Back To Football

Every player, coach and fan is ready. Super Bowl 2010

The NFL returns this week. It’s “Back to Football” time. That means the next five months will be packed with the sizzle and suspense that comes only with the National Football League.

Everybody is ready for the unique unpredictability of the NFL. And every team enters the new season with hope.

Last year, 65 percent of the games were within one score (eight points or fewer) in the fourth quarter. Fourteen percent were decided in the final two minutes or overtime. And for the 14th consecutive year, at least five teams made the playoffs after missing out the year before, including the Super Bowl XLIV champion New Orleans Saints.

All the anticipation that started with the NFL Combine last February, heightened by the NFL Draft in April, and peaked with the opening of training camps in July comes to realization this weekend. It’s time to get “Back to Football.”

As the 2010 NFL season kicks off, it comes packed with changes, quests and questions:


It’s tough. It’s happened only eight times since the first Super Bowl in 1967. But the Saints are up for the challenge. “It’s going to be difficult to repeat,” says New Orleans quarterback and Super Bowl XLIV MVP DREW BREES, “but we embrace that challenge. We’re in the business of winning and we have an opportunity to create a legacy here that’s not just about one championship. We see what we have here and it’s something that can be really special.” Continue reading

College Football Odds: Handicapping the Big Ten

College FootballThough it wasn’t always the sexiest college football conference to watch take the field in 2009, the Big Ten was one of the most competitive leagues in the land. The Ohio State Buckeyes reigned supreme in the Big Ten once again and went to the Rose Bowl, where they knocked off Pac-10 champions Oregon.

The Buckeyes are back again to try to win the BCS Championship, and head coach Jim Tressel has to like what his side will be faced with this year. The two games to really keep an eye out for are against Iowa and Wisconsin on the road.

However, with a good chunk of a defense coming back that ranked fifth in the country in total defense at 262.3 yards per game and fifth in scoring at 12.5 points per game, Ohio State has a lot to look forward to. Continue reading

Browns suspend disgruntled Winslow one game

Tue 21st, October 2008

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – The Cleveland Browns handed Kellen Winslow a one-game suspension on Tuesday as a result of the tight end’s negative comments toward the organization and, specifically, team vice president and general manager Phil Savage.

“Kellen has expressed his desire to be a productive member of the Cleveland Browns,” said Savage through a released statement on Tuesday. “His comments and behavior on Sunday evening, however, were unwarranted, inappropriate, and unnecessarily disparaging to our organization. His statements brought unjustified negative attention to our organization, and violated the team- first concept of our football squad.

“Therefore, disciplinary action will be taken in the form of a one-game suspension without pay for conduct detrimental to the club.”

Winslow was hospitalized for three days and was treated at home for another three days because of a staph infection that kept him out of Cleveland’s 35-14 win over the New York Giants on October 13.

The team did not reveal the nature of his illness, however the Pro Bowl tight end was clearly unhappy with how the situation was handled.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Winslow specifically said he feels he’s been treated like a “piece of meat” and is unhappy that Savage didn’t call him while he was hospitalized. It was the second staph infection suffered by Winslow since 2005.

The 25-year-old Winslow played Sunday in Cleveland’s 14-11 loss at Washington. He finished with two receptions for 17 yards.

Winslow has collected 21 receptions for 187 yards and a touchdown this season for the 2-4 Browns. Cleveland is scheduled to visit Jacksonville on Sunday.
