Significant injuries from the weekend:
Greg Olsen - broken foot - 6-8 weeks
Vic Beasley - torn hamstring - 4-6 weeks
If the Falcons season goes to hell as a result, DFO CALLED IT!
HODOR - out for Week-3.
The NFL was denied an injunction to relieve the
Scotchy worked hard all weekend on the liveblogs - 2149 comments! - so I thought I'd give him a break and tie tonight's matches into my usual falderal.
The NFL has filed an appeal of the injunction that's allowed Ezekiel Elliott to remain eligible to play the 2017 season.
[blatantly ignores the long days and nights since the Super Bowl] Wow! It seems like just yesterday that I was watching relevant football being played and here we are again. The good folks of Canton, Ohio might just see a game in their backyard for the first time in two
Hi, tonight is the night I am stepping in for BeerguyDan who is just back from Chile trying to sell stolen phones or something along those lines. This would be my virgin Open Thread blog and there is very little sportsing going on so I will just ramble then go
As you may recall about a month ago I put together a somewhat researched mock draft, doing the best I could with several hours of research and writing and stuff. It was actually a fair amount of work and gave me a new appreciation for all the work that the
Seriously, there's too many of these. Anyone who watched last night's Foster Farms Bowl saw a near-empty stadium
and a meh football game. Actual attendance wasn't announced, but they did tarp off the 18000-seat upper deck. As always, let's blame Jed York for this failure.
I doubt this many fans will attend
Aren't breasts of all kinds completely amazing in every way? Let me tell you about my latest experience that occurred just hours ago. I was at the grocery store and I was completely blown away by a perfect set. They were sticking out like a sore thumb at the deli

There's a ton of fantastic sports action going on right now for a guy that may have skipped work to get day-drunk. Here's what's on tap/currently tapping-
Badminton, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Boxing, Canoe/Kayak, Cycling, Diving, Equestrian, Gymnastics, Handball, Field Hockey, [takes a deep breath] Sailing,
My tv preview thingy tells me that this game is being shown on The NFL Network. This is the game that was chosen to be highlighted for the first Sunday-Nighter of the exhibition season? This game. This game? One of these teams doesn't even exist!
Texans/49'ers-After getting kicked to the curb
The Olympics are blessing us with Synchronized Swimming, Tennis, Equestrian, Boxing, Golf, Basketball, The 100 Metres, (328.084 feet for the Americans out there) Shooting, (No-not the kind you're accustomed to, Americans) Badminton and Sailing. There's the U.S. Senior Open as far as professional golf is concerned. I've heard a rumour
It's been a bit hard summoning enthusiasm for these pre-season affairs. Don't get me wrong-I love football but the second half of these games look like a bunch of anonymous wrestling fans enjoying their day-pass from some anger management facility. The thing is...there's a ton of compelling drama going
Although his powers of evil are completely capable of making it happen, not even RGshithead (that's Roger Goodell) would cancel six games. Right? (my glass is half full btw) So here we are-cheering for football itself, our fave teams and most importantly, NO INJURIES. This is who we are, folks.
