Who Regressed More After His Rookie Year, RG3 Or Charlie Batch?

Since Robert Griffin's spectacular rookie season, there have been an previous few other things to talk about with regard to Washington—especially once he started to regress. Now there's speculation he could be traded. It's obvious his production has declined, but to what extent exactly? Is it as bad as it seems? » 11/27/14 9:15am Yesterday 9:15am

Darren Rovell Bravely Defends The Brands From Richard Sherman

Yesterday, Seattle Seahawks corner/provocateur Richard Sherman used a mandated media availability (and a life-sized cardboard cutout of Doug Baldwin) to mock the NFL for fining Marshawn Lynch $100,000 for refusing to talk to reporters two weeks ago, for blatant hypocrisy, and for expecting its athletes to behave like… » 11/26/14 12:36pm Wednesday 12:36pm

Devon Still's Ex Says He Hasn't Paid Child Support In Months

Bengals defensive end Devon Still's relationship with his cancer-stricken four-year-old daughter, Leah, has seemed to be perhaps the only true feel-good story in the NFL this year. Maybe not so much anymore, though, as Leah's mother, Channing Smythe, is claiming that Still has recently refused to pay months worth of… » 11/26/14 11:06am Wednesday 11:06am

Fran Tarkenton Spent A Season On Now-Banned Horse Painkillers

Earlier this month, federal agents raided the medical staffs of five NFL teams. They were looking for prescription drugs, on the heels of a class-action suit alleging that the NFL has been doping up its players for years, pumping them full of painkillers because it was the only way they could possibly stay on the… » 11/26/14 10:33am Wednesday 10:33am

Say Goodbye To RGIII In Washington

We have, unless and until Colt McCoy gets hurt, almost certainly seen the last of Robert Griffin III in burgundy and gold. Now benched for two different backups to end two consecutive seasons, there is nothing left in D.C. for the former second-overall pick. Not if Jay Gruden remains coach, and given that Griffin's… » 11/26/14 9:03am Wednesday 9:03am

Report: RGIII Benched, Colt McCoy To Start Against Indianapolis

Earlier today it seemed Jay Gruden really wanted to bench Robert Griffin III, and according to a report from Adam Schefter (and confirmed by Mike Jones), he's finally done it. Schefter, citing a team source, says that Colt McCoy will be Washington's starting quarterback when they take on Indianapolis on Sunday, not… » 11/25/14 11:29pm Tuesday 11:29pm

Richard Sherman Mocks NFL With Brilliant Press-Conference Performance

This is so good. At his weekly meeting with the press, Seahawks corner Richard Sherman, a cardboard cutout of Doug Baldwin, and the disembodied voice of actual Doug Baldwin teamed up for a skit that took shots at the money-hungry NFL and stood up for teammate Marshawn Lynch, who was fined $100,000 for failing to talk… » 11/25/14 4:31pm Tuesday 4:31pm

Man, Jay Gruden Really Wants To Bench RGIII

Last week, Washington coach Jay Gruden apparently won the power struggle with his quarterback for Dan Snyder's favor. On Sunday, Griffin kept the Skins in the game; he didn't do anything particularly well, but he didn't do anything egregious enough to warrant being benched for Colt McCoy. He'd better keep that up,… » 11/25/14 2:19pm Tuesday 2:19pm

MNF Praises Owner Who Tried To Abandon New Orleans

Monday Night Football spent part of tonight's broadcast practically blowing Saints owner Tom Benson, after it was announced earlier that he had donated $11 million to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Ten million dollars will go towards renovating Canton's Fawcett Stadium (including renaming it "Tom Benson Hall of Fame… » 11/24/14 11:18pm Monday 11:18pm

Chiefs' Eric Berry Has Mass In His Chest, Will Get Tested For Lymphoma

Chiefs safety Eric Berry will miss the rest of the season after doctors discovered a mass in the right side of his chest.

Dominic Raiola Also Punched Zach Moore In The Head

The Lions' Dominic Raiola was mad about the Patriots "playing football," so he went at defensive lineman Zach Moore's knees on the last play of the game. That wasn't Raiola's only cheap shot on Moore, though: Three plays earlier, the center—wearing No. 51—punched Moore in the back of the head as he got past Raiola's… » 11/24/14 3:59pm Monday 3:59pm
