    Michael Sam's Gay...Now, Who's Gonna Draft Him?

    The returns would seem to be in regarding the NFL's acceptance of University of Missouri senior Michael Sam, the league's first openly gay player -- or at least the man who would be the league's first openly gay player if he's drafted in May. Shannon Sharpe, former All-Pro and now commentator for C ... More >>

    Jets and Giants: A Depressing Post-Mortem

    The Giants were the smaller disaster, so let's handle them first. They were next-to-the-last in the entire league on defense, meaning 31 out of 32 teams in yards/allowed. That's going to take so much shoring up before next season that it's hard to know where to begin. And yet, that may not be Big ... More >>
