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
