Cool As the Brees
Tuesday Morning Tailback

Less than halfway through the season, Drew Brees has 18 touchdown passes and leads the league with 2,477 yards, well on his way to his sixth consecutive 4,000 yard season, which will tie an NFL record. Yet t seems like this constantly underrated QB seems to once again be falling under the radar.

America’s Dumbest Vice President
Sinclair Soul

Vice President once again orchestrated a shameless display of demagoguery, the likes of which most of us abandoned in junior high school. But for good ole Joe, it is the just the latest in a long pattern of using his privileged position as a public servant to spit out asinine, outrageous, weird, and downright dumb things.

Nicknames Suck,
Let’s Shake On It

Tuesday Morning Tailback

Why can’t a serious football fan get serious analysis without the hype and marketing tie-in? I would just like to appreciate some of the fantastic on-field feats that Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been doing this season, but the sports media has insisted on blowing him out of proportion with the ridiculous nickname “Megatron”.

Commitment to Excellence
Tuesday Morning Tailback

The NFL lost a true rebel this week when Raiders owner Al Davis died on Saturday. If you’ve paid attention to the blitz of coverage on Davis’ passing, you will have heard his long list of accomplishments. But what truly made Al Davis an original was his fearlessness in making unpopular decisions.

Soft Pink Underbelly
Tuesday Morning Tailback

The flamboyant display of pink on the playing field has, frankly, run its course. I’m not in any way saying that the NFL should abandon the cause of breast cancer awareness, I just think it is a bit over the top to splash it around so prevalently, chipping away at the integrity of the game. On the field itself, it should be 100% about football.

When the Roof Caves In
Tuesday Morning Tailback

Man, you’ve got to feel it for the Minnesota Vikings fan. The team which has an infamous history of getting really, really close but collapsing at the end, has lived this out in a microcosm over the first three weeks of the 2011 season, as they’ve blown substantial halftime leads only to lose each game and start off the season 0-3.

Joe Sold His Soul for a Television Show
Ric Albano

What happened to Joe Scarborough? Did he really set aside all of his moral scruples just to “fit in” at the pathetic MSNBC?

Polarizing the Football World
Tuesday Morning Tailback

This past Sunday, the ESPN show “Outside the Lines” focused on Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow saying “this third-string quarterback polarizes the football world”. Yet this same network, along with the rest of the football press, rallies behind the “redemption tour” of Michael Vick, a figure who actually has done much to polarize.
