Sat Sep 25 2021 01:38:41 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)

On one hand, Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey knows he’s facing the greatest quarterback of all time on Sunday. On the other hand, he’s taking the game no more seriously than any other.

Fri Sep 24 2021 23:46:48 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)

Alex Guerrero, not Tom Brady, had some pointed comments earlier this week about the manner in which Patriots coach Bill Belichick mishandled Brady.

Tom Brady should take a page from the Aaron Rodgers playbook and speak his mind

Fri Sep 24 2021 16:09:09 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)

Aaron Rodgers has had plenty to say in recent weeks. Although we reserve the right to disagree with the things he says, it’s great that Rodgers will say things directly. Clearly. With no one close to him speaking on his behalf. Yes, Rodgers used a few surrogates during the offseason (James Jones, John Kuhn, e.g.). [more]

In early 2008, a woman in a wedding dress at the Super Bowl media day asked Tom Brady to marry her. If only he’d accepted, she possibly wouldn’t be in her current predicament.

Thu Sep 23 2021 13:29:08 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)

Appearing on the Monday night Manningcast, Gronk said that he never watches film, that he simply asks Tom Brady who’s covering him. On Wednesday, Gronk [more]

Antonio Brown’s absence opens door for other Buccaneers

Wed Sep 22 2021 17:03:55 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)

On the surface, it hurts the Buccaneers to lose Antonio Brown to COVID reserve. At a deeper level, it opens the door for other receivers and tight ends to do more. Plenty of talented options haven’t gotten many chances. Receiver Scotty Miller hasn’t been targeted once in two games, and he has participated in 20 [more]
