Tweet After the Cardinals lost in shocking fashion to the Chicago Bears on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, Cards Head Coach Dennis Green came to the press conference and lost his composure. It was an unfortunate display, but also one that was appropriate for the situation. The Cardinals had a 20-point lead and simply blew it. Here’s the video ...

Tweet The silly way the Raiders treat star Wide Receiver Jerry Porter goes on. ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The NFL Players Association on Monday appealed Oakland receiver Jerry Porter’s four-game suspension by the team for insubordination, calling the punishment “excessive.” Porter, who has been inactive all season, was suspended by the Raiders on Saturday, a day after being kicked out of practice by coach Art Shell. “We believe that a four-game suspension is far too excessive at this point,”...

Tweet Given Profootballtalk.com’s habit of trying to call out African American players and coaches, I wonder how much of this matter regarding Greg Knapp’s alledged comments about “Michael Vick’s limited passing skills” is true. Any observer of the Falcons must note that their receivers don’t catch the ball in critical situations. When Vick puts the ball where it should be, it’s not caught, and this was glaringly obvious in the game against the New York Giants. Even Atlanta’s...

Tweet Monte’s column also reveals how terrible San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Mike Nolan’s management style is, where the players — who have to execute the schemes — are not consulted.

Tweet This isn’t an Art Shell move, it’s an Al Davis move and it stinks. More on this later. Raiders’ Porter suspended four gamesESPN.com news services ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders suspended disgruntled wide receiver Jerry Porter for four games without pay Saturday for conduct detrimental to the team. Porter, when contacted by ESPN for a response, offered a “no comment.” The suspension, which will likely be appealed by the union, would cost Porter slightly over $235,000 in salary....

Tweet Michelle Malkin’s a conservative columnist who I’ve always believed just became Republican to snag a white guy, and turned her initially personal scheme into this rather intense effort to make herself into a celebrity. She’s succeeded. (Now before you get after me, I’m going to explain that in my experience most of the time a woman said they’re “Republican” it was followed by the person’s expressed interest in someone white and male. Now there are exceptions to this,...

HILL JR.STAR-TELEGRAM STAFF WRITER IRVING — Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens said numerous times that he has learned from his past problems and wants to be a better player and better teammate in Dallas.

Tweet This article’s from Profootballtalk.com. It says they’ve been pestering a league source about Browns Offensive Coordinator Maurice Carthon’s job. My question is why pick on Carthon? Why not pick on Tom Walsh of the Raiders? Their own article states that the Browns’ offense is ranked ahead of only that of the Oakland Raiders in NFL statistics. Is it because Carthon’s black and Tom Walsh is white? In my view, although I like ProFootballtalk.com, there’s an annoying tendancy to be...

Tweet Texas’ Vince Young, the third pick in the first round of the NFL Draft and to the Tennessee Titans, hates being 0 and 5. He was so upset about losing to the Colts that he didn’t talk to the media. It’s understandable that he was as upset as he expressed with his silence. Several Titans receivers missed catchable passes Young threw that were difference makers in a contest they lost only by one point, 13 to 14. Today, on the NFL Network, he appologized for not talking on Sunday and explained that he...

Shut out of the end zone in his first four games as a pro, Bush took the punt 65 yards with under five minutes to lift the New Orleans Saints to a 24-21 victory over Tampa Bay.

Tweet SAN FRANCISCO (Oct. 8, 2006) — For the last three miserable seasons, the Bay Area has been home to two bad NFL teams. At least the San Francisco 49ers can prove they’re getting better.

Frank Gore rushed for a career-high 134 yards and third-string running back Maurice Hicks scored on a 33-yard screen pass for...
