In comments on Michael Sam, Tony Dungy is failing to look at the big picture

Yes, when Tony Dungy stated over the weekend that he wouldn’t have drafted openly-gay NFL rookie Michael Sam because “things will happen,” he was — somewhat refreshingly — breaking from the media status quo and saying something publicly that a lot of NFL front-office types have said privately and/or off the record. What Dungy was […]


Video: NFL rookies react to their Madden ratings

The connection between the NFL fraternity and the Madden video game empire is deep and fascinating.

Four years into what has already been a remarkably productive career, Jimmy Graham has received a fresh four-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. And although it is now clearly debatable whether or not he’s truly a tight end, we’re already in the mood to start forecasting Graham’s long-term chances of making a run at […]
