  • • Report: Sean Lee will be healthy scratch for Cowboys
    Since 2010, linebacker Sean Lee has been a mainstay for the Dallas Cowboys when healthy. Today, even though he’s healthy, Lee is expected to be inactive.

What this really is about, however, is the rookie Dallas drafted in the first round this y...2018
  • • Jaylon Smith: Pro Bowl snub is ‘blasphemy’
    Jaylon Smith has done plenty to prove he was worthy of a second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft despite concerns over a chronic knee issue he was battling, and no one would have been surprised if the Cowboys linebacker was selected for the Pro Bowl this year. He was not, however, and he clearly feels he was overlooked. After the Pro Bowl rosters were announced on Tuesday, Smith sent a cryptic twe...2018
  • • Kyle Lauletta clearly not Giants' quarterback of the future
    We learned earlier on Sunday that Eli Manning is increasingly likely to remain with the Giants in 2019, and the fact that New York does not presently have a legitimate replacement on its roster is a big reason for that.

Thompson was a third-round pick of the Giants in 2016, but he has yet to find his footing in the NFL. Thompson’s would-be rookie season was mostly lost to a Lisfranc injury suffered in training camp. He started in all 16 of his games in 2017, but a hamstring injury held him back in...2018

    ARLINGTON, Tex. - This most intriguing of NFL drafts is finally upon us, and the unknowns still abound. Here's my final attempt at mocking out what will unfold Thursday night at AT&T Stadium.  Expect some trades, but I'm only predicting one for the purposes of this exercise, a swap between No. 10 Oakland and No. 12 Buffalo.

Will we trade all the current players for all the draft picks in the entire draft???? It's all a little nerve racking for the average fan.

    On the 50th anniversary of the Jets’ one and only Super Bowl season in 1968, highlighted by Joe Namath’s guaranteed upset of the Colts, it was pretty thoughtful of New York’s vanquished Super Bowl III opponent to aid the Jets in their never-ending quest to find the next Namath. And that is what that Jets-Colts blockbuster trade last Saturday was about, New York’s attempt to position itself to sele...2018

    Mock drafts before free agency even opens are inherently flawed exercises, given that a team’s offseason needs can fluctuate wildly depending on how active it is in the market. But with the NFL’s Scouting Combine in the rear-view mirror, we’re at least starting to get a sense for how the league’s 32 teams view this year’s incoming class of prospects. While the free agency fate of quarterbacks like...2018

Based on his own timetable, that means another five years or so of us all keeping track of TB12’s race against Father Time. According to coaches that have to deal with the reigning NFL MVP’s success on the field, there is very little expectation that Brady’s on-fie...2018
