The Media is Twisting Stories of Players Leaving Football

The Narrative 4 players walked away from their NFL careers the past 2 weeks without being cut. Of course all the news stations that rarely cover sports are jumping on this as “the end of the NFL and football!” The Truth I beg to differ with their conclusions.  Each one of these is different and unique on its own.

Football 101 For Women: Stop Politicizing Sports

Football 101 For Women has been around for 20 years at the University of Colorado. It’s marketed to women–hence the title. Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre and his staff teach the3-hour, voluntary, interactive clinic with meetings, film study, and skill stations, and the cost is $50.

Today we get watch what are considered 2 great defenses, the SF 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks.  But upon further examination what a difference in the make-up of the players!

The Jets started the game with a beautiful drive, taking the lead over the Patriots 7-0.  Marching down the field again, it looked like a minimum of 3 but maybe another 7.  Then, the dreaded Pick 6 going 80 yards the opposite way.  In the past, that was our recipe for continued disaster …

Jets Beat Bills With Defensive Brilliance and the Deep Ball

Well….. 8 Sacks, a RB going for 150 yards and a QB throwing for over 300 yards – sounds like an easy victory, right? But not with my Jets, they drain me of all energy and bring it down to the last possession. The New York Jets needed this victory or falling to 1-2 when Miami and New England are …

Connie’s Pep Talk: Week 3 – Jets vs Bills

Today’s Jets-Buffalo game is being covered on TV as the Geno Smith vs. EJ Manuel Bowl, but I’m looking at it as Rex Ryan vs. Mike Pettine instead.  EJ Manuel was taken before Geno (1st vs. 2nd round) and the Buffalo Bills have a definite advantage in their players at the skill positions, so if the Jets defense can rise …
