The Atlanta Falcons current record of 6-0 may have been dismissed by many parts of the media much to the annoyance of Falcons fans, but the NFL’s last undefeated team has still been met with some caution by fans of the team from Georgia. There are two main reasons for this, the second, which we will come too later is this current teams recent playoff history, something that the media themselves have become a little obsessed with. The playoffs don’t start until January and therefore it is impossible for any team to improve their...

Robert Griffin III, the 2nd pick of the 2012 NFL Draft behind Andrew Luck, is leading his new team, the Washington Redskins, against the New Orleans Saints 33 to 17, while Luck and his new team, the Indianapolis Colts, are behind the Chicago Bears 34 to 14 as of this writing. While some may not like that comparison between Griffin and Luck, that’s the way it’s going to be for the entire 2012 season, and because they were picked 1-2. And… This blogger’s in Chicago at my folk’s home watching the Colts...

Julie Buehler is a one-woman army of awesomeness poised to take the sports media World by storm. I met Julie just before the 2012 NFL Draft, and the video above was made on the first day we met in person, at NFL Play 60. As you can hear, she’s more than informed about the Indianapolis Colts, because she covers the Colts during the NFL Season. In fact, she...

This second 2012 NFL Mock Draft for Zennie62.com (Zennie62 coverage sponsored by Tout.com) is a variation on my original combination of which top players this blogger thinks each NFL team will take, and who they should take. In this case, the Vikings at #3 pick in the 1st round are shaping up to be the swing point in the Draft. The entire direction of the NFL Draft will change depending on what Minnesota does at that point. While many want the Vikings to take USC Offensive Tackle Matt Kalil, the fact is they have other more glaring...

Michael Bush left the Oakland Raiders to sign with the Chicago Bears today and for five-years and $14 million, $7 million guaranteed. The reception was, from Oakland Raiders fans, ho-hum, whereasChicago Bears fans were happy. But the person most unhappy with the deal was Chicago Bears star running back Matt Forte, himself. Forte, who’s still without a contract as of this writing, took to Twitter to show his displeasure and concern with the Bears move:   @MattForte22 Just Keeping it real…hate it or love it @MattForte22...

At the start of Free Agency the Atlanta Falcons had a large number of potential Free Agents and after a few in-comings and out-goings around $7 Million in cap space. Before Free Agency officially started the Falcons signed two unattached players in Lofa Tatupu to a 2 year deal and also added former Jacksonville Guard Vince Manuwai however since Free Agency officially began on Tuesday the Falcons have been quiet. Let’s recap what’s currently happening with the Falcons in Free Agency.  Brent Grimes- Grimes was given the franchise tag,...

At 4pm Eastern Time on Tuesday 13th March the madness will begin…. Yes that’s when the new NFL season officially begins and that means the free agency market is open for business. If the free agency market was based in one place like the Draft it may look something like a Wall Street trading floor with traders or in this case NFL owners barging each other out of the way to hand their ticket with the name of their free agent target into the Commissioner, who would be some kind of modern day Gordon Gekko minus the oversized mobile phone...

The classic 1981 NFC Championship Game between the Dallas Cowboys and The San Francisco 49ers is worth remembering not just because it was the San Francisco 49ers first NFC Championship win, or that it was the game that marked ‘The Catch,’ or that it had six lead changes, or that it pitted Bill Walsh and Tom Landry, but because a number of legends in that game are no longer with us. Bill Walsh, Tom Landry, Freddie Solomon, Harvey Martin, and Ron Springs are the top names in that contest who have passed on. The most recent...

By Anthony Carillo Running a 4.3 second 40 yard dash in shorts is great, but how often does it translate to a great player in the NFL? The answer is rarely. The NFL combine is a great place for players to showcase their talents running, jumping, and show how strong they are, but NFL teams and fans need to remember that these players are doing all of this is shorts and t-shirts. The list of players that have had great NFL combines and did not pan out in the NFL is ever-expanding, and teams fall in love with the numbers some players put...

Jerome Simpson, the previously known only to Cincinnati Bengals fans, is now a man with a house hold name. Everyone wants to know who the NFL player was who just did the 360 over a defender and into the end zone, putting his team in the playoffs at the same time. The effort made his name the most-searched over the Christmas weekend. But something else that caught our attention was the awful rush to get a pair of Air Jordan Retro shoes. Why people feel they need this is beyond me, but hurting people to get them is just plain silly....

The surprising Houston Texans are dealing with a new surprise: starting quarterback Matt Schaub is out for the rest of the 2011 NFL Season with something called a Lisfranc Injury. Now, USC grad and National Champion Matt Leinart steps in for his first NFL regular season game start in two years. And what is a Lisfranc injury? Foothealth reports: LisfrancThe Lisfranc joint is the point at which the metatarsal bones (long bones that lead up to the toes) and the tarsal bones (bones in the arch) connect. The Lisfranc ligament is a tough...

In the “NFL Hand Shake Scandal” between San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh and Detroit Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz, who was right? An unscientific but hard to game poll at Zennie62.com reports that 58 percent of those who responded say Jim Schwartz was wrong. If you’ve not seen the incident, I talk about it here: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has essentially said that because no punch was thrown, there’s no basis for a fine. Thoughts? Here’s a sample of some thoughtful YouTube comments: It...

Carson Palmer is an Oakland Raiders quarterback as of today. And the man who was the long-time (2003) Cincinnati Bengals signal caller who went to USC, gets to stay out in the West Coast and play for Hue Jackson. (In fact, Palmer will be officially reunited with Jackson at a press conference set at Raiders Headquaters for 7 PM EST today.) The trade with the Bengals closes a relationship between Palmer and the Tiger Helmets that turned ugly. Palmer was sick and tired of always coming up short in Ohio, and demanded to be traded or he...

For five years, Ed Goines was the Senior Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs for the San Francisco 49ers. Now, Ed Goines has stepped over the line to become an Official NFL Players Association Contract Advisor, otherwise known as NFL Agent. For Ed, it’s a logical step. “I have corporate sponsor contacts, and know how the team organization works. I can see the player deal from both the players and the team’s perspective. As the 49ers point person for business affairs I was responsible for sponsorship deals...
