Why Cam Newton Doesn’t Have the Right Traits to Remain in the NFL Very Long

Wednesday, August 25th, 2021

Colin Cowherd: “Sources in New England say there is a level of frustration internally with Cam Newton and it has opened the window for Mac Jones. New England wants this out there, you know why New England wants it out there? Because when they move off Cam, ‘Hey, we gave him a chance, COVID situation last year, COVID situation this year’, they’ll have a little protection and a little insurance so when they move off Cam players in the locker room and players around the league know.

Ranking the 2021 NFL potential starting quarterbacks into tiers

Thursday, May 20th, 2021

Instead of ranking them individually, we place the quarterbacks into five categories.

Mahomes leads Chiefs past Titans and into Super Bowl

Sunday, January 19th, 2020

Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes broke the Tennessee Titans' backs with a dazzling 27-yard first-half touchdown run as the Chiefs overcame a 10-0 deficit to win the American Football Conference title game 35-24 and return to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 seasons on Sunday. Mahomes, who also threw three touchdown passes, gave the Chiefs their first lead at 21-17 with the tackle-breaking run with 11 seconds left in the opening half. They went on to dominate the second half and grab a spot in the Feb. 2 Super Bowl in Miami against the winner of the San Francisco 49ers-Green Bay Chiefs game later on Sunday.

Buccaneers-Bills: What we learned (The SportsXchange)

Sunday, December 8th, 2013
TAMPA -- Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said Sunday's defensive performance reminded him of how the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' dominant units from their glory years used to play on a consistent basis, the group that included Derrick Brooks, Warren Sapp and Ronde Barber. The Bucs sacked Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel seven times and intercepted him four times in a 27-6 victory Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. In a sloppy game that featured seven turnovers, and six personal foul penalties, the Tampa Bay defense stole the show, swarming Manuel and holding the Bills' dangerous running back duo of Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller to just 34 yards. Manuel's four interceptions matched his total from his first eight games.

Receivers Viewers Guide: TE Bennett a missing factor (Comcast SportsNet Chicago)

Saturday, December 7th, 2013
The Dallas Cowboys have given up more than 380 passing yards in five games this season. The Bears rank in the top 10 of nearly every passing statistic, not unremarkable given the up-and-down state of their quarterback situation. The Bears have 22 passing touchdowns through 12 games, vs. 21 all last season. The question is whether the Bears will be able to be one on Monday night when temperatures are projected to be in single digits, or if the cold will blunt the Bears’ best chances for staying with a Dallas offense ranked No. 3 in scoring.

Struggling Texans fire head coach Kubiak (Reuters)

Friday, December 6th, 2013
(Reuters) - Gary Kubiak became the first coaching casualty of the National Football League's (NFL) 2013 season when the Houston Texans fired him on Friday with the team in the midst of a franchise-record 11-game losing streak. The decision comes a day after Houston lost to Jacksonville and fell to an NFL-worst 2-11, a huge swing from last season when they went 12-4 and won the AFC South Division. "This has been a very disappointing year," said Texans chief executive Bob McNair. To have this string of losses is unacceptable." Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will serve as interim coach for the Texans' final three games of the 2013 season, the team said in a statement.

Bradley to caution Jaguars about brash remarks (Comcast SportsNet Houston)

Friday, December 6th, 2013
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley let his players jump around on the field, dance in the locker room and hoot and holler as much as they wanted Thursday night. When they return Monday, Bradley plans to ground them a little bit. ''If we're going to boast, we boast our weaknesses to each other,'' Bradley said Friday, a day after Jacksonville's 27-20 win over the Houston Texans. The Jaguars (4-9) have won three in a row and four of five games since the bye, a modest turnaround that Bradley and players are enjoying.

Thursday, December 5th, 2013
The Packers' franchise quarterback expects a decision Friday -- Saturday tops -- whether he'll be medically cleared to face the Atlanta Falcons in a game crucial to the team's dwindling playoff prospects. If he can't go, Matt Flynn is back in again. But at least one person thinks Rodgers is a go, even if the Packers themselves aren't sure. The Packers fell from first to third in the NFC North, sitting at 5-6-1 behind the Lions and Bears.

Titans’ skid now at 2 straight losses, 5 of last 6 (The Associated Press)

Friday, November 15th, 2013
The Tennessee Titans have lost five of their last six games and are hoping to turn things around down the stretch with one simple message: The playoffs start now. The Titans have lost two straight, including a 30-27 loss to Indianapolis on Thursday night that ended hopes of challenging for the AFC South title. Tennessee remains confident and points to four losses by seven points or less as a sign of how close the team is winning. Coach Mike Munchak said Friday the Titans (4-6) understand the challenge ahead.
