Six weeks after he had a stroke, which he revealed publicly Wednesday, Henry Anderson said he's ready to return to playing action, potentially Sunday. "If I'm cleared to play, I want to be out there and play football because that's what I love to do."
Jason Garrett was in the running for the Duke head coaching job last year and he’s reportedly a top candidate for another college opening this year.

The reports generated in connection with the investigation of the Commanders by the House Oversight Committee will contain plenty of interesting nuggets. Here’s one, as flagged by the keen eye and diligence of attorney Dan Lust. Lust points to page 42 of the Democratic report regarding the investigation. That’s where the report explains that, after […]
The Lions have a big game on Sunday against the Vikings and may get a little boost to their offense from a young receiver. First-round pick Jameson Williams made his pro debut last week in the win over the Jaguars. He was on the field for eight offensive snaps and received one target in his […]
Giants safety Xavier McKinney‘s season was interrupted when he broke multiple fingers on his left hand in an ATV accident during the team’s bye week and the injury may wind up ending his season altogether.

Competing reports have been issued regarding the House Oversight Committee’s investigation of the Washington Commanders. Before turning to the report from the party that controls the Committee through the end of the year, there’s one more significant nugget in the Republican response, beyond the effort to place blame on former team executive Bruce Allen. The […]
Last week was a good week, for both of us. I went 12-2-1. MDS went 11-3-1. And we disagreed on six games, which means that as to the nine agreements, we were 9-0 each. Along the way, my lead increased to 11 again. I’m 127-66-1. MDS is 116-77-1. This week, we differ on only two […]

The Titans selected Farley with the 22nd overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, but he hasn’t […]
Former Washington executive Bruce Allen may soon be rethinking his membership in the Republican Party. The GOP’s version of the House Oversight Committee report regarding an extensive investigation of the Washington Commanders takes aim at Allen, arguing at pages four and five that a properly thorough investigation of the situation would have included a “full […]
The Bills won’t have Von Miller for the rest of the 2022 season after he underwent surgery for a torn ACL. The news was surprising when Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott announced it on Wednesday, given that there initially seemed to be plenty of optimism Miller would return at some point this year. But now […]
Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson played in a regular season game last week for the first time since the end of the 2020 season and it was a rocky return to action. The Browns got a win over the Texans, but they did not score an offensive touchdown and Watson was 12-of-22 for 131 yards and […]
The Chiefs are dominating the AFC West like few teams have ever dominated a division. If the Chiefs beat the Broncos on Sunday and the Chargers lose to the Dolphins, then the Chiefs will clinch the AFC West. That would make this the seventh consecutive season that the Chiefs have won the division. And that […]
As the Republican Party prepares to take over the House of Representatives, power over the House Committee on Oversight & Reform will shift from Democratic control.

Indeed, we’re told […]

Falcons head coach Arthur Smith said after last Sunday’s loss that “everything is on the table” when asked about the possibility of making a quarterback change when the team returns from their bye in Week 15 and it appears he has decided to make a switch. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Falcons […]
Baker Mayfield‘s whirlwind week could see him start on Thursday night for a team he just joined. Rams head coach Sean McVay told reporters on Wednesday that he was leaning toward having Mayfield being active on Thursday night. That’s in part due to the health of backup quarterback John Wolford, who is questionable with a […]
Given his success in 2022, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had an uncharacteristically poor performance against the 49ers last week. He finished 18-of-33 for 295 yards with two touchdowns, a pair of interceptions, and a lost fumble. Tagovialoa hadn’t thrown an interception since September. He hadn’t had a game with multiple giveaways since the Week Two […]
December is the month for extreme procrastination. How long can I wait to mail that package? How long can I wait to buy a tree? How long can I wait to go shopping for my spouse? Are any stores open on Christmas morning? One specific store is closing soon. If you want to get a […]
Lions coach Dan Campbell ignored the analytics and attempted a field goal late in Detroit’s Week Three loss at Minnesota, and he still regrets it. In fact, he’ll always regret it. The Lions were leading 24-21 with 1:14 left in the game when Campbell decided to try a field goal on fourth-and-4. Going for it […]
The Steelers will be hoping that recent history repeats itself when they face the Ravens this weekend. Pittsburgh swept the season series from their AFC North rivals in each of the last two seasons, which leaves the Ravens trying to avoid the third five-game losing streak against the Steelers in franchise history. That record is […]
Last year, when the midseason free-agency adventure of receiver Odell Beckham Jr. languished, we said this: Watch the Rams. This year, as the midseason free-agency adventure of OBJ languishes, we said on Wednesday, “Watch the Eagles.” The goal wasn’t to stir the pot and/or the shit. The goal was to analyze a situation and predict […]
