Tweet Follow me By Don Stokes Senior Writer Mid West/Football Reporters Online   As we are well aware there have been those Wide Receivers who have all of the natural ability in the world but for some unknown reason do not adjust to the pro game or are allowed to grow in the right system for their talent set. Some of these young men in this group will have long careers or become consistent NFL Pro Bowl players. Maybe one will receive a yellow jacket to Canton. But in reality in a few seasons some will be looking...

Tweet Follow me Well, the NFL, via its media website, has announced that the one-year suspension levied by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, as well as the penalties are the Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis, and Assistant Head Coach Joe Vitt, were upheld without change. But, Payton did get two extra weeks to be the Saints’ Head Coach, since the suspension now starts April 16th, and not April 1st. That officially nixes any rumored celebration of an expected reduction in the suspension by Commissioner Roger...

Tweet Follow me Mike Silver’s relationship with film documentary producer Sean Pamphilon led to what may be this year’s biggest leak. This blogger met Mr. Pamphilon when he came to make a documentary of the 2011 “Little Game” – the annual contest of friends mostly from Cal (Berkeley). Pamphilon had two concerns, the game, but also talking with Mike about the NFL’s problem with head and traumatic injuries. So it came as no surprise to me that Pamphilon was reportedly “doing...

Tweet Follow me By Dr. Bill Chachkes-Executive Editor/Managing Partner-Football Reporters Online. (Photo-Wikipedia-Team staffs at the 2010 Draft) Loyalty: it’s a word no one associates with professional football any longer. Today it’s all about the “Dollar signs” ($$$). Usually when I read those I expect to pay more money for a meal in a restaraunt or for tickets to a show.  But with NFL player salaries going up constantly, the teams’ rosters should have $$$’s next to each player’s...

Tweet Follow me The New Orleans Saints soon-to-be-suspended Head Coach Sean Payton openly wants the legendary former head coach and NFL executive Bill Parcells to come out of retirement and coach the Saints while he’s gone. But there’s one problem: the NFL has said that, even in this case, The Rooney Rule still applies. The Rooney Rule, established and named to reflect its author, Pittsburgh Steelers Owner Dan Rooney, says that an NFL team must interview minority head coaching candidates from within...

Tweet Follow me By JP FOX-Contributing Writer-Football Reporters Online-Special to Zennie62.com November 28, 1998. Minnesota Vikings rookie Wide Receiver Randy Moss: 3 catches 163 yards and 3 touchdowns in a Thanksgiving Day game against the Dallas Cowboys. I was 8 years old at the time and about 2 or 3 years into my never-miss-watching-a-cowboys-game career. In the 1998 draft, Marshall Wide Receiver Randy Moss was probably one of the most talented players in the entire draft. Off the field problems had people projecting...

Tweet Follow me The National Football League owners will look at extensive changes to the page of rules that concern the use of instant replay at the NFL Spring Meeting to be held starting Sunday in Palm Beach, Florida, and to conclude Wednesday of next week. I’ve displayed the new rule proposal below, but only with the new language in, because the strikethrough did not migrate to the blog post when copied. The major change is that the NFL will now leave all instant replay actions and decisions to the “replay...

Tweet Follow me At 4pm Eastern Time on Tuesday 13th March the madness will begin…. Yes that’s when the new NFL season officially begins and that means the free agency market is open for business. If the free agency market was based in one place like the Draft it may look something like a Wall Street trading floor with traders or in this case NFL owners barging each other out of the way to hand their ticket with the name of their free agent target into the Commissioner, who would be some kind of modern day Gordon...

Tweet Follow me The classic 1981 NFC Championship Game between the Dallas Cowboys and The San Francisco 49ers is worth remembering not just because it was the San Francisco 49ers first NFC Championship win, or that it was the game that marked ‘The Catch,’ or that it had six lead changes, or that it pitted Bill Walsh and Tom Landry, but because a number of legends in that game are no longer with us. Bill Walsh, Tom Landry, Freddie Solomon, Harvey Martin, and Ron Springs are the top names in that contest...
