NFL needs to adapt the AFL’s overtime rules

Saturday night’s playoff game between Arizona and Green Bay was epic. But the ensuing overtime period lasted just three plays and left something to be desired. So maybe now’s a good time for the NFL to adopt the AFL’s overtime rules.

Despite struggles in Philly, Chip Kelly has potential in NFL

Last week, the Philadelphia Eagles released Chip Kelly after three years and mild success. But the end of the road in Philly doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the road for Kelly’s NFL coaching career.

Setting up the NFL for promotion and relegation

With the European soccer season beginning this month, I’ve decided to explore what promotion and relegation could do to a top American sports league, particularly the NFL and how it could make it more exciting.

NFL needs to suspend Tom Brady

The report has all but admitted that Brady broke the rules by deflating the balls. Now that in itself wouldn’t be the cause of many, including myself, calling for him to be suspended. Instead, Brady has lied what knowledge he had about it and stood in defiance to the NFL, and that is why Brady should be suspended for a considerable amount of time this season.

Give Chip Kelly’s mad scientist approach a chance

Sunday evening, the Philadelphia Eagles signed Tim Tebow as a quarterback. Or more appropriately, Chip Kelly signed Tebow as a quarterback.

I would say that I’m surprised by this move, but after what’s already transpired this offseason in the City of Brotherly Love, it’s kind of hard not to be surprised. LeSean McCoy was traded to Buffalo. Nick Foles was traded to St. Louis for Sam Bradford. He signed former Cowboys players Miles Austin and DeMarco Murray.

So when I heard the news about the Eagles signing Tebow, I wasn’t really that shocked about the move.

Aaron Rodgers winning NFL MVP not shocking, but J.J. Watt was more deserving

If you ask me who should win the MVP, I, like so many other people, would say that the award should go to Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt, despite the fact that his team didn’t quite end up in the postseason.

Belichick, Patriots don’t have benefit of the doubt

While in the grand scheme of things it didn’t really matter with New England winning 45-7 and Indianapolis never really having a chance, it’s a clear violation o the rules if it was done on purpose and head coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots don’t really have the benefit of the doubt here.

Despite needing comeback, Seahawks will be stiff challenge for Patriots

After needing a dramatic comeback with a fair share of help from their opponents and the New England Patriots completely destroying the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC title game, it would be easy to think that Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona will be a blowout. But we’ve learned anything from these Seahawks before, it’s to never quite count them out.

Rex Ryan will put Buffalo Bills back in national media spotlight

With the signing of former New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, that just might change. The move might not work on the field for the Bills, but they’ll be back in national spotlight with Ryan.

Egregious no call not a conspiracy, but certainly suspicious with NFL

I’m not really one to believe in conspiracies. They’re really nothing but speculation and simply a waste of time.

But what happened Sunday evening at Cowboys Stadium is really quite interesting.

Appeal ruling fine, but Suh has earned ‘Bad Boy’ reputation

Suh deserved to win his appeal. While it looked bad on television, simply stepping on someone, and now stomping with force, is the least worrisome attack a player can do in a football game.

But in the same breath, Suh has certainly earned this reputation as a “bad boy” and “dirty” player in the league, which no doubt contributed to his original one-game suspension.

Now is the time for Redskins to switch to McCoy

Despite injuries, the lack of results and now calls from their own fans, the Redskins, and more likely owner Dan Synder, continue to roll out Robert Griffin III in game-after-game hoping he brings back the magic and success he had in his rookie season. But time-after-time, the same thing happens: he fails and the team loses.

So it wasn’t too much of a surprise when the team was booed off the field at halftime of their loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and fans chanted “we want Colt,” in reference to back up quarterback Colt McCoy as well.

And you know what? They’re right.
