Get out while you can

Standard

The Washington Redskins hired Mike Shanahan to be their head coach.

With what is coming out now Redskins players better get out if they can.

With Shanahan comes the polygraph as he used it on a player while as head coach of the Denver Broncos.

Now, comes an unexpected development as former National Football League linebacker Bill Romanowski, according to Fox’s Jay Glazer, has interviewed for the Redskins strength and conditioning coach position.

Romanowski played for Shanahan in Denver.

So, on top of polygraphs Redskins players have to deal with a nut case that will be in their face while working out.

In the end there will be one sure thing about the Redskins in 2010 and that is there will never be a dull moment.

The inevitable has happened

Standard

The Buffalo Bills have been a train wreck when it comes to injuries the last couple of years.

So, it is no surpirse that Bills head coach Chan Gailey has replaced former strength and conditioning coach John Allire.

Gailey hired John Gamble and Eric Ciano to be co-strength and conditioning coaches.

Ciano the past five years has been the strength and conditioning coach at Georgia Tech where he served under Gailey for three years.

According to the Buffalo News, Gamble was the number one ranked power lifter in the world in the 275 pound weight class from 1981-1983 and was inducted into the United States Weightlifting Hall of Fame in 1999.

For the past 16 years Gamble has been with the Miami Dolphins his first 12 as strength and conditioning coach and the last four in a role helping players off the field.

In the end considering that Gamble is the last remaining link to Hall of Fame coach Don Shula and that he was voted coach of the year in 1998 by the Professional Strength Coaches Society they were good hires.

The next step for the Bills

Standard

With the Buffalo Bills coaching staff all set it is time for the team to move to the next step.

That step being solving their injury problems.

The Bills had a ridiculous amout of players on injured reserve, which reached into double digit numbers by the end of the regular season.

Th thing is that it doesn’t matter how talented a team is if you lose that many players your going to stuggle on the field.

Also, this jas been going on for several years now and enough is enough.

In the end the Bills better start solving their injury problem or they are going to stink again next year.

Have Saints fans lost it?

Standard

When the New Orleans Saints won the Superbowl the celebrating started.

However, it has gotten to the point where you have to wonder if Saints fans have lost it.

According to ProFootballTalk,com, Saints fans have turned Saints quarterback Drew Brees’s house into a shrine.

Are you kidding me a shrine?

It takes a team working together to win a Superbowl not one person.

Also, the biggest play of the game was made by cornerback Tracy Porter when he intercepted Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

Its all good and well to celebrate a Superbowl victory, but not to the point od stupidity.

In the end cool it Saint fans as your only making fools of yourelves.

The end of ans era?

Standard

Chris Berman has been with ESPN since it first took to the air in 1979.

With Berman’s contract up in May it could be the end of an era.

According to Sports by Brooks, via ProFootballTalk.com, Direct TV and the NFL Network are also trying ascertain Berman’s services.

Apparently. ESPN will make a bid, but they won’t break the bank to keep him.

That means he is good as gone as he will get a ridiculous amount of money from the other two..

In the end it may be the end of Berman at ESPN, but as long as he is back to do a football highlight show it will be all worth it

Is Brees an anomaly or a trend?

Standard

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is not your prototypical quarterback at 6’0″ 209 pounds.

That leaves one to wonder if Brees is a anomally or a new trend?

The prototypical quarterback in the National Football League is over 6’4″ and 220 pounds.

The NFL is a copy cat league and now most likely other teams will be open minded about starting quarterbacks that are not tall like Baltimore Ravens quarterback Troy Smith.

That is the thing that pisses me off about the NFL teams get worried about stupid things like height, weight, and arm strength.

Playing quarterback is much more than that as Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has shown that the mental side of the game is a huge factor as well.

In the end hopefuly the Bills have learned how important it is to have a franchise quarterback.
