Eli Manning Wants to be the Highest Paid QB in the League

Not only is Eli Manning the only QB to beat Tom Brady in a Super Bowl, but he has done it twice. He probably doesn’t get the credit he deserves and being Peyton Manning’s younger brother doesn’t help either. But don’t tell Eli that. He feels as if he should be the highest paid QB [...]

Jadaveon Clowney Returns to Practice

Jadaveon Clowney’s career has gotten off to a rough start. Injuries have had him in street clothes more so than a Texans uniform thus far. And he also underwent the dreaded microfracture knee surgery. But he’s back on the field practicing at least. Only time will tell if he’s still the player he was in [...]

The Portland Trail Blazers’ offseason did not go as planned, and General Manager Neil Olshey knows it.

Every participant walked away healthy, proving, once again, that Paul George’s broken leg in 2014, while tragic, was a freak anomaly. But that’s not why we’re here. Nor are we [...]

A great QB can make any WR look spectacular. While it may be a bit premature to label Andrew Luck, he’s certainly on his way. His play has made T.Y. Hilton look like a star. Not to take anything away from Hilton, of course, because he’s very talented. But this duo should be causing havoc [...]
