The Bengals get one of the draft’s top pass rushers with pick No. 41.

In the first round, Cincy Jungle swung for the fences for the Bengals in taking running back Leonard Fournette. It may not have addressed the team’s issues on defense, but Fournette’s addition could transform Cincinnati’s offense. Going into the second round, the Bengals are faced with issues on the defensive line, where they could use … Continue reading “The Bengals get one of the draft’s top pass rushers with pick No. 41.”

Ohio State’s spring game was 2-hand touch for a bit, and everyone was confused

Safety’s pretty paramount in spring games, and literally the worst thing is to have a player get hurt during a glorified scrimmage.

Here’s what it looked like, and it … Continue reading “Ohio State’s spring game was 2-hand touch for a bit, and everyone was confused”

the Ravens’ edge relies heavily on Sizzle

With his strong mechanics, powerful arm, and gaudy college numbers, it’s no surprise Mahomes has emerged as an early round pick in the 2017 draft. Once he gets to the big leagues, he’ll still have a lot to prove. A dodgy defense helped the nation’s No. 1 passing offense (by nearly 100 yards!) drop to … Continue reading “the Ravens’ edge relies heavily on Sizzle”

The legendary broadcaster has been with the Kings for 44 years.

The same goes for someone who grew up across the globe

The book about this mini-era in North Carolina Tar Heels basketball is still under construction.

The Raiders are trying to pretend social media is excited about their move to Las Vegas

The article, on Raiders.com features cherry-picked tweets from the verified accounts of players, media, and a single fan (who doesn’t live in Oakland).

To be fair, there are some fans saying they’ll support the team no … Continue reading “The Raiders are trying to pretend social media is excited about their move to Las Vegas”

Adrian Peterson ‘bothered a lot’ by groin injury vs. Seahawks

Adrian Peterson said a nagging groin injury kept him from playing at 100 percent in the Minnesota Vikings’ 41-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, according to St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The NFL dispatched special counsel Ted Wells to investigate the matter.

Both Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson were ineffective against the Panthers, coming in under the 79.1 average mark. Despite having faced some of the worst offenses in the league, Carolina’s front seven is definitely legit. The mistake they can’t make is being too lax in the passing game while they concentrate on Gore, as tight … Continue reading “The NFL dispatched special counsel Ted Wells to investigate the matter.”
