NFL and Concussions, Pt. II

In light of recent events in the National Football League, the focus on concussion trauma is even more under a microscope. The fire reignited recently when Colt McCoy of the Cleveland Browns was hit in the head by none other than Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison. While I defended Harrison’s fined hits in the past, I knew from experience playing football at any level that while Harrison could argue McCoy was a runner, he lowered his helmet but didn’t go low to hit McCoy in the midsection as has been specified by the NFL. While many of the rules for hitting “defenseless” receivers or QB’s are still extremely lousy there is no black & white on proper or improper technique, rather all gray area, I felt this hit was appropriately judged and interpreted on the field and after the game by refs and the league. The problem with the hit wasn’t even as big a problem which lead to this post as what happened with McCoy afterwards. We knew it was a violent shot to the he

Obesity Linked to Low Income [Duh]

So here I am sitting at the computer on Yahoo! the other day when I come across an article I found a little "interesting". It was more centralized to women, being one of those female-health online-magazine articles, but within the article, they argued with research that the results were consistent among men as well. So while nothing about this interested me to the point of "oh, this is something new to learn", I was interested in reading what I was sure would be classic, boneheaded comments from people interviewed on the subject (economists, scientists, and doctors). Among these putrid comments, stood one above all the rest. An economist had stated, "you would believe with all the money the high-income bracket obtains, they would be the ones more likely to suffer from obesity levels because they can afford more food." Clearly he's one of the high-income bracket members... I wouldn't have to do research or study anything on this topic

New Horizons...

...maybe they're not favorable. Kim Jong Il, the charismatic leader of the North Korean communist party, passed away over the weekend as a result of mental and physical stress. That means it's now time for his third son, Kim Jong Un, to take over the country. So here's to prayers he doesn't get too damn drunk and go fuck everyone up, because that's a crazy bastard right there.

Analysis of the Washington Redskins and Fans

Okay, it’s finally time I present this long-winded rant about the Redskins. Just a quick disclaimer, there may be some foul language, I may target some people, and this is not going to be a rant all about the team or coaches… “fans” are as open a target as any. First off, I want to point out the most apparent problem with the Washington Redskins this season, the offense. Even more important, the REASON for the problem, Kyle Shanahan. Sure, the players contribute, and for the last 2 weeks, everyone has said Kyle is not to blame for sacks, INT’s, deep attempts, balance, etc. I say to that, yeah right. And here, I provide the evidence to the theories I’ve been expressing here and on Twitter to which I’ve received hate for my opinion on the Kyle Shana-plan for 2011. It all started with...

RIP Al Davis

NFL-franchise Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis has passed away. He was 82. It feels absurd that I even begin to explain the legacy of Mr. Davis, I think that the best way to explain the man is "abnormal". That is intended in NO WAY as a knock against Davis, a former scout, coach, and GM... the Raiders were taken off by Al Davis and became one of the most feared franchises in the history of professional football. As commissioner of the AFL, he was a key proponent in the merger of the AFL and NFL, leading us to this wonderful league we've got today. Al Davis leaves us with his Oakland Raiders having won 3 Super Bowl's. Al Davis' legacy is the Will to Win and the Commitment to Excellence. While many point to the last decade as being a sign that Davis had been passed by the game, I say to everyone loo no further than Bill Belichick's words last week about the man. "He was the greatest football-minded owner." He was a polarizing figure, an

2011-12 NFL Season 1st Quarter Review

So far this year, the NFL has been a pass-happy league, very poor defense is being played, and run games are hard to come by. Some of the best teams are topsy-turvy and some of the worst teams are front-runners. Here, I’ll look through what I’ve observed so far this year for each team individually. Whether you agree with me or not (please use comments or hit me up on Twitter @Sean_Bishop if you’ve got something to say about my thoughts), I’m merely just speaking on behalf of what I see. AFC East: Buffalo Bills (3-1) – The Buffalo Bills are a surprising team, to say the least. They seem to be taking a more serious approach to the game and running the football a little more, and Ryan Fitzpatrick shows up. They’re not official yet, but they’re pretty good. They’ve got firepower on offense, and they make some plays on defense. New England Patriots (3-1) – Tom Brady is on fire this year, and is on pace to demolish the single-season passing yards recor

Washington Redskins Comments Cause Controversy

Okay, I’ve got to address two HUGE items of Washington Redskins discussion to make news today. First, Chris Cooley’s comments regarding Tony Romo, and Dan Graziano’s reaction. For those of you who didn’t get a chance to read Graziano’s thoughts or see what Cooley said, click here . First of all, I really enjoy reading Dan’s work on the NFC East blog on ESPN (and I hate 99.9% of everything ESPN does), so I was a bit shocked at his approach to Cooley’s comments and suggesting Cooley apologize to Romo for his actions. I was also baffled by his incredible exclusion of the fact that this is a rivalry! Chris Cooley should not be offering words of encouragement to a division rival, and a rival that transcends the division, the conference, the NFL altogether. When people talk about the greatest rivalries in sports, they talk the Redskins vs. Cowboys in the same breath as the Yankees vs. Red Sox, Michigan vs. Ohio State, Celtics vs. Lakers, Bears vs. Packers. Chr

Thoughts On Washington Redskins vs. St. Louis Rams

The 2-1 Washington Redskins traveled to St. Louis to take on the 0-3 Rams. The Redskins were coming off of their first loss of the season on Monday Night Football vs. the Dallas Cowboys. Washington tried to establish the run early, but it wasn't working ideally with Tim Hightower, so Mike Shanahan turned to Roy Helu hoping he could provide the spark. Rex Grossman eventually connected on a beautiful pass to the corner to Santana Moss with a defender right in his face, and Moss came up big for the touchdown. The defense was smothering, and punishing Sam Bradford all game.  Mike Shanahan eventually handed the keys to the run game over to Ryan Torain, and every opportunity he got to hug the football into his gut, he did what the run game in Mike Shanahan's system needed to do... read the defensive tackle, cut decisively and ran physically. On Torain's first four or five carries, he ran over St. Louis Safety Stewart and punished him. Torain broke the first hit in t

Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys - Thoughts

Okay, now that I’ve had slumber to rest on this loss to the Cowboys, it’s time I give my thoughts on the game. Nobody was expecting 16-0. Truth be told, I think it’s a blessing that our defense is playing as well as it has been so far, and offensively, I think we needed a reality check at some point. I hate that it came against a division rival, the Dallas Cowboys at that, but for the long haul, this is a team that believes it can correct their mistakes and rebound. The coming weeks will be what defines this Redskins team. The running backs in the first half were slipping left and right. I didn’t see much of that happening to defenders or even to receivers making cuts on their routes, so I don’t know what was up with Tim Hightower and Roy Helu. Receivers weren’t getting open. Looking back at Dallas’ first two games, a lot of the success in the passing game for those teams came on the receivers’ ability to beat the corners physically at the line of scrimmage. Th

Sean Remembers 9/11

September 11, 2001 – a day that will live in infamy. Everyone, including myself, remembers 9/11 as being a beautiful day. The only reason we remember this fact is the aftermath of the events that unfolded. Even the clear blue skies and perfect temperatures the rest of that day were darkened and disturbed by the horrible realization of what happened. What happened? Freedom was attacked, and in many cases taken. I, like everyone, remember the events of that day vividly. I was a freshman in high school, and we were in 2 nd period (gym class for me) outside walking around the track. I was walking with a friend, Mike Randall, when we were told the towers were both hit. Like everyone when they heard of the second tower being hit, the immediate realization was that we were under attack. We were pulled back into the school and brought into the locker room. I remember seeing Football Coach Perry watching the news on his television for my first view of the events. I rem
