Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns

Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo

In previous seasons if the Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo injures his back in a Monday Night Football game it would just be "pile on Tony" Tuesday. Not this season.

Patriots Trading Tom Brady to Texans? Interesting Idea

New England Patriots Tom Brady

With the NFL trade deadline approaching, the rumor mill is aflame with crazy ideas. On the surface, one such idea seems no crazier than ESPN's about the New England Patriots trading Tom Brady to the Houston Texans. Though the season started slowly for the Patriots, Brady and Co. now stand 5-2 and atop the AFC East. So why would ESPN even think the Patriots trading Tom Brady to the Texans makes sense? Because a precedent has been set with great quarterbacks, and the Patriots are a bit of a Machiavellian team. Great … [Read more...]
