It’s now been a decade since then-New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini set off Spygate by alerting the NFL to the New England Patriots videotaping opponents’ signals. And he still wants to repair his friendship with Bill Belichick, who hasn’t talked to him since.
The Raiders are in the market for a head coach. Their list of candidates, however, is proof that owner Mark Davis is his father's son.
This morning, Ravens coach John Harbaugh went on a Baltimore radio station to say that the Patriots' championships have "asterisks" and that those titles have been "stained" because of Spygate. It didn't take long for Harbaugh to issue a statement clarifying his remarks to say he was referring to "the perception out…
Sal Paolantonio reported one of those stories this morning that forced Philly's football media to ask the kind of question Eagles coach Andy Reid might actually have to answer. According to Sal Pal, the Eagles had tried to bring in former Browns coach (and current ESPN analyst) Eric Mangini to jog along and hold…
The Joke That Started It All
Shortly after 9 a.m. Friday, in a big gray conference room in a big gray convention center, 1,500 people—mostly white, mostly male, mostly clad in business suits—roar with laughter. Jeff Van Gundy, the former Knicks and Rockets coach and current ESPN analyst, has just cracked wise. Jeff…
We know it's exciting that the Mangenius is gone in Cleveland, but that's no reason for Hannah Storm and Adam Schefter to high-five over it. They quickly apologized, but still: high-five!
On Monday afternoon, the New York Times website published a William Rhoden column titled "The Day the Patriots Empire Began to Crumble." But it was actually The Day the Patriots Earned the NFL's Best Record. The Times regrets the error.
The Cleveland Browns are not the worst team in the NFL. Yet, front office chaos, locker room drama, and a lot of lousy football have made them exemplars of what it means to be a terrible sports franchise.
In these trying times, it's hard to know who is actually in charge of your awful NFL team. We'll do our best to keep you informed of these frequently changing and occasionally riveting announcements.
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
Rolling Stone magazine's insult comic dog Matt Taibbi recently took a break from his assault on capitalist swine like Goldman Sachs to turn his wrath on a bigger and more menacing target—Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini.
Eric Mangini wants to bring a fresh start to the Cleveland Browns franchise. And he won't have any pesky tributes to team luminaries interfering with it.
The Cleveland Browns have come to terms with deposed Jets head coach Eric Mangini, and will formerly announce his hiring on Thursday. And Romeo Crennel may be staying around as well!
I'd always thought that Bill Cowher looked the most natural in New York, where his scowl seems the most at home. Now, he and the Jets are talking, apparently.
OK everyone, act surprised. Not only did Chad Pennington knock the Jets out of the playoffs, but he appears to have scuttled its head coach as well. Mangini, gone!
There was a time, not that long ago, when the Jets were on top of the world and area fans were seriously considering an all-Jersey Super Bowl. Boy, those were the days.
