Before the New England Patriots faced the New York Jets in the postseason, there was a lot of trash talk, mostly from New York’s lockerroom. Antonio Cromartie had a lot of things to say about quarterback Tom Brady and Rex Ryan just had a lot to say period.
The team reflects the characteristics of their coach on both sides. Wes Welker, outside of Bill Belichick’s character, had a press conference where he made 10+ references to feet in response to the “Foot Fetish” scandal surrounding Rex Ryan’s wife. Was it disrespectful? A little. Was it hilarious? By all means. It was nice to see someone in the Patriots camp say something back for once. It would have been even better if they could have actually won the game.
Now that the NFL lockout is solid and in place, Welker is stepping back into the spotlight for a comment he made during a free football camp he hosted in Oklahoma City. Continue reading Patriot's Wes Welker Sticks His Foot In His Mouth…..AGAIN!
Although Cam Newton has yet to make a single dollar from his contract with the NFL due to the prolonged NFL Lockout, doesn’t mean Cam isn’t going to treat himself like the star he is. His cake for his 22nd birthday was lavish and looked like it cost quite a bit. Hope it tasted as good as it looked.

It seems like this will be one of the most controversial off seasons for NFL players. Not only because of the labor dispute that each side refuses to settle, but there seems to be a lot of arrests made in the name of the game. Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Sergio Kindle pleaded guilty to drunken driving on Tuesday and apologized for his actions. What did that get him? Well, a right on time apology landed Kindle with two years of unsupervised probation, a waived $1000 fine, an order to abstain from alcohol and self-help sessions on a weekly basis.
If you have never seen Kindle play, do not worry. You are not alone. Continue reading Sergio Kindle Pleads Guilty to Drunken Driving

Ocho Cinco is being offered $10,ooo to ride a bull.Would you turn down that offer?
For people who have yet to understand how much of a media whore Chad Ochocinco is, you should be ashamed of yourself. But, why should that be a problem? If you have the ability to show your face and get more money every time you do, why not? He is living every man’s dream. Well, besides the bull riding thing. Only about a handful of America, besides the professionals, would really cop to desiring to take part. Ochocinco should bull ride just because he wants to.

I have said it before and will say it fervently again. Reggie Bush is making his time in New Orleans shorter and more bittersweet than ever. The first notion that he would probably be on the first ship out of the dock was when he tweeted, “It’s been fun New Orleans,” moments after the Saints traded up to steal Mark Ingram from the draft list.
The move made by the franchise spoke volumes about how much they valued Bush’s efforts in the past season. Coming out of college he was supposed to be the NFL’s golden rusher, but he has yet to meet the potential everyone thought he had. Continue reading Reggie Bush Tweets His Foot in His Mouth
After an underwhelming season played for the Titans, Randy Moss is unlikely to be returned to the roster last year. Moss recorded only 6 catches for 80 yards and 0 touchdowns in the 8 games he played with the Titans. It’s safe to say that in his 13th year in the NFL, that age is catching up and Moss isn’t the same player he was with the Patriots.
On Friday, Tennessee Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt held a conference call with season ticket holders to discuss the team’s plans heading into the 2011 season. One of the main plans that is sure to catch headlines involves wide receiver Randy Moss–who fans shouldn’t expect back for a second season with the Titans.
