49ers: The Curse of Jim Harbaugh?

By

The San Francisco 49ers were a goal line stand away from winning their sixth Super Bowl back in 2012. Jim Harbaugh took the team to the Super Bowl in only his second season as Head Coach. Now in 2015 the 49ers are looking at rebuilding.  While you can look at the positives of signing Torrey Smith to replace Michael Crabtree, the negatives are just through the roof. It seems as if Jed York was blessed with the gift of Jim Harbaugh, and when he didn’t want it, he fired him. I’m sorry, I meant “mutually parted ways” with Harbaugh. Thus the Curse of Jim Harbaugh was born. How else would you explain the recent retirements by Chris Borland and Patrick Willis. Well ok, Willis is retiring due to an injury, and Borland is retiring due to health concerns post-NFL. Justin Smith is thinking about retirement while LB Chase Thomas just tore his ACL working out. Yes, players...

NFL Free Agency: Overrated Free Agents of 2015

By

It seems like it was yesterday the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, yet here we are days away from Free Agency. NFL Free Agency, one of the big reasons why the NFL has so much parity. Even with the cap increase of ten million from last season, teams are struggling to get under the cap by the new league year. Each year players are let go and new players are signed, as teams look to fill a void before the start of the draft. Though, buyer beware as a player may not be who you think your getting. You see it every year where teams over pay to lure free agents, but also they just simply fall for the hype of some players. Next week will be no different as I present to you the top five overrated free agents of 2015. 5. Avoid Ravens Free Agents: There is one constant every March, the Baltimore Ravens have key free agents that 31 other teams drool over. They sign those players thinking...

Why the Bills won their trade with the Eagles

By

The Philadelphia Eagles traded All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy for Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso. Without a doubt a trade that came out of nowhere. Rex Ryan is certainly trying to make a splash in his first offseason as Bills head coach and without a first-round draft pick in this year’s draft, Ryan is doing whatever he can to elevate his offense. In his five season as a running back C.J Spiller has only rushed for over a thousand yards once and has never started a full season. He has shown signs of being an All-Pro but last season he only played in a total of nine games due to a broken collarbone. The Bills proved last season that they could be dominate without Alonso and it proved as Ryan made the call to trade Alonso.  Last year the Bills were without a doubt a top-five NFL defense and the best defense in the AFC and that was without rookie standout Kiko Alonso who...

Michael Vick’s latest mistake

By

Michael Vick will be forever judged as a man full of mistakes. A star-studded NFL player who made wrong choices along his career path. Michael Vick’s latest mistake might be the biggest one of his professional career. After five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Vick had his choice between the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  At 34 years old, none of the teams saw him as a starter. Plus, his history of injuries have prevented him from playing more than 13 games in a single season.  Instead of a starter, teams were looking for depth and the New York Jets got it. Michael Vick knows he’s better than sitting on the bench and playing the backup role, especially for Geno Smith. The Buffalo Bills have always liked Michael Vick. In fact, the story goes the Bills were the team who intended to sign Vick on his way out of prison, but the...

Jerry Jones only sees green in the stands

By

Jerry Jones doesn’t see Dallas Cowboys Blue, White or Silver. You see, Jerry Jones only sees green in the stands. AT&T Stadium has a main seating capacity of 80,000 but is expandable to seat nearly 100,000 fans for large events such as the Super Bowl. That’s just one reason “Jerry World” is a disadvantage for Cowboys players. We’ve seen it each week the Dallas Cowboys have played at home this season. There are almost as many fans for the opposing team than there are for the Dallas Cowboys. Can we blame this on Tony Romo too? According to this fan maybe? “I’m a season ticket holder. I paid $10,000 to have the right to buy tickets. If Jerry can charge $9 for a beer then, I can sell my tickets for a profit – its called business. If Romo doesn’t like it then stop going 8-8 every year.” AT&T Stadium has been anything but a...

The Football Addict: How to Cope

By

Every football fan/addict wants one thing… More Football!!!!! As the regular season gets under way, we get our fill with so many games going on at once, and depending on your TV provider, some are fortunate to be able to watch them all. What about after the final whistle blows? Where do football fans go once the confetti drops at the big game? After the end of the season, we are fortunate enough to be able to talk about the game for a while, and then what the next year has in store. But once everything is said and done, there is a serious lull for football fans. Myself, I also enjoy baseball, so I’m pretty much covered year round. But what about those that have no desire to see anything other than a pigskin? Where do they turn? It used to be that you were left with serious withdrawals. The letdown of it all, making you disheartened with everything going on in your world....
