Is Tony Romo One Of The Top 10 Players In The League?

Is Tony Romo one of the top 10 players in the league? After the 2014 season, this one was a no-doubter, but how about now? Matt Hasselbeck seems to think so. "In my opinion, he's one of the top 10 players in the league." - Matt Hasselbeck on Tony Romo pic.twitter.com/xZY120PHL6 — NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) August 13, 2016

Russell Wilson moves ahead of Andrew Luck in Mike Sando’s 2016 QB Tier rankings

A lot of fans have grown tired of not just the constant comparisons of Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck, but also all the talk about the comparison of Wilson to Luck. But this is not a concept that’s new to the NFL, by any means. Fans have been comparing who has the better QB since the beginning of football, but what is new is that the Seattle Seahawks have never had a QB worth mentioning in such debates. Matt Hasselbeck may be my favorite Seahawks of all-time, but nobody would have ever mistaken him for a “Tier I QB.” At most, we just hoped that national media would give him any...

Jacksonville Jaguars top 25 plays of 2015: Andre Branch's touchdown

We're counting down the 25 best plays of 2015. Who made it to No. 8? Matt Hasselbeck getting Don Quixote'd. The Jacksonville Jaguars are eight days away from their preseason opener against the New York Jets and that means we're counting down the top plays of last season. Yesterday was Aaron Colvin and Chris Clemons combining for a touchdown against E.J. Manuel and the Buffalo Bills in London. Today's top play? No. 8: Andre Branch changes the game vs. Colts Andre Branch was not good in Jacksonville, but he flashed moments of brilliance as any mediocre player given hundreds and hundreds...

Seahawks tickets: Only Patriots games more in-demand for 2016

The Seattle Seahawks are not only good, but they feature everything you would want in a watchable football team: A great quarterback, an interesting sideline head coach, a talkative superstar defensive player, a fantasy beast at tight end, running back, and wide receiver, a wild card defensive end who could do anything or say anything at any moment, and success in recent seasons in the form of two Super Bowl appearances. Because of that, it’s no surprise then that the Seahawks are now the second-most wanted tickets in the NFL this year, after only the New England Patriots, per SeatGeek....

Peters gives Chip shots, praises Pederson

BY ALL ACCOUNTS, including his own, Jason Peters did not play very well last season. The $9.7 million question, which is the amount of Eagles salary-cap space he'll be occupying this season, is why.

North Dakota TV stations chronicling Wentz

THREE NORTH DAKOTA TV stations made the trek to Philadelphia for Carson Wentz's first week of Eagles training camp. (Are there more than three TV stations in North Dakota? Was anyone left at home to chronicle progress toward the impending flax and soybean harvests?)

Matt Hasselbeck on Andrew Luck: “He takes pride in not showering”

Andrew Luck is a unique guy. We all know that by now: I mean, how many NFL quarterbacks have their own book club? How many quarterbacks congratulate defenders on a nice hit? How many quarterbacks show up to training camp saying he loved being able to wear the same clothes for two weeks? That’s the Colts’ franchise quarterback, and it’s easy to understand why people love him. But that orneriness? That’s genuine. Former Colts backup quarterback and Andrew Luck’s friend Matt Hasselbeck appeared on Mike and Mike in the Morning this morning as he begins his job at ESPN, and he...

Colts will be on hand at Hall of Fame induction “out of respect” to Tony Dungy, Marvin Harrison

On August 6, two of the pillars of one of the greatest eras in NFL history will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as former Colts head coach Tony Dungy and wide receiver Marvin Harrison will be enshrined in Canton. The entire Colts team will be in Canton preparing to play their first preseason game the following night, the Hall of Fame game against the Green Bay Packers. But make no mistake: despite all of the preparations for that game (ok, not really that much for the first preseason game), there will be plenty of time for the Colts to take in that...

Colts Camp Notebook: Day Two

The Indianapolis Colts returned to the practice field on Thursday afternoon for their second session of training camp, and it was a much better and sharper practice than it was yesterday. In yesterday’s session there were some obvious miscues that could simply be attributed to the first day of camp, but today everyone seemed much more crisp - starting with Andrew Luck, who had a nice bounce-back performance today after a rough one yesterday. Once again, there were some notable injuries and absences today that bear noting, so that’s where we’ll start our camp notebook. Injury Update....
