Michael Bush signed 'for the long haul,' but almost gave up playing in NFL again

What is the plan for the veteran back? The Arizona Cardinals signed veteran running back Michael Bush on Tuesday. Head coach Bruce Arians talked about the need of a big back to close out the game. On Wednesday, reporters asked Arians about Bush and also were able to talk to Bush himself. One thing was made pretty clear -- if Cardinals fans were expecting Bush to jump right in against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend, they will be disappointed. "The problem is we don't have many padded practices left and this will not be one of them, so it will be very hard to get him up to seed as fast as...

49ers address TE trouble; activate Celek, promote Cleveland

The 49ers addressed their banged-up tight end position before tonight’s game against the Seahawks by activating Garrett Celek from the physically-unable-to-perform-list and promoting Asante Cleveland from the practice squad. Celek and Cleveland will presumably take the spots of Derek Carrier (foot) and Vance McDonald (back) on the active 46-man roster against Seattle. The 49ers placed Carrier on injured reserve because of the injury he sustained in last week’s 17-13 win against Washington. McDonald will likely miss his second straight game tonight because an injury that limited in all...

Redskins Blog: Griffin: ‘I’m just focused on helping us win’

The interview, such as at it was, lasted 38 seconds and covered a walk of roughly two football fields, from the Redskins’ practice bubble, across the parking lot and to the team’s front door. But Robert Griffin III spoke publicly Thursday for the first time since Coach Jay Gruden announced he was benching the starter in favor of backup Colt McCoy and had a single message to impart.

Rex Ryan as TV analyst would be interesting

There is little doubt Rex Ryan will be in demand as a defensive coordinator when the Jets presumably fire him after another lost season. (Most delicious possible outcome: Taking over the Giants defense. He wouldn't even have to move!)

Saints Wednesday Injury Report: Khiry Robinson Still Out

The Wednesday injury report is out and still no official word on Brodrick Bunkley. After five weeks of inaction Khiry Robinson still does not practice. When asked about Brodrick Bunkley's status, Sean Payton said he should know more tomorrow. The fact that Sean even answered the question about Broderick says a lot. Also it's reported that they have signed former Georgia DE, Garrison Smith to the practice squad. From NFL.Com's 2014Draft Profile/Garrison Smith OVERVIEW 2013: Started in all 13 games he played in. Had 63 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and six sacks. 2012: Played in 14...

Saints Fans, We Have Plenty to be Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving Canal Street Chronicles and all of the Who Dat Nation! We all know our Black and Gold warriors aren't doing so awesome this year with a 4-7 record through 11 games, but trust me Saints fans, we still have plenty to be thankful for in 2014. Take a look. It's been a strange, strange ride for the New Orleans Saints in 2014: the team went from preseason darling and favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl to a 4-7 record and what amounts to a very disappointing season even with five games yet to be played. It could be doom and gloom at this point for Saints fans, but...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions final score: Bears lose 34-17

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions final score: Bears lose 34-17

The Bears needed a win in Detroit, but the Lions walked away the victor. The Chicago Bears entered Ford Field on a two-game winning streak, with hopes of turning their season around and trying to back their way into the 2014 playoffs.  But the Detroit Lions had other plans, imposing their will on Chicago, on both sides of the football.  The Lions left the building with a 34-17 win, bringing their record to 8-4. While the Bears (5-7) aren't yet mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, they would need to win out AND see about half the NFC have complete and utter meltdowns in order to...

Giants Morning Report: Beckham, Tyree debate catches

New York Giants headlines for Thursday, 11/27. Happy Thanksgiving, New York Giants fans! Here is your Turkey Day Giants Morning Report. Beckham, Tyree debate catches Odell Beckham is still insisting that the 'helmet catch' by David Tyree in the Super Bowl was better than his one-handed grab Sunday vs. the Dallas Cowboys. Tyree and Beckham have been debating the merits of each catch. "He was like, ‘You know, it may be better than mine,'" Beckham said today. "And I'm telling him, ‘No way, yours was in the Super Bowl. Period. Mine was just in a regular season game.' I still have to give my...

Former Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings finds home with Giants

Rashad Jennings of the New York Giants is eager to play in the good weather in Jacksonville on Sunday. “It’s snowing right now, and I know it’s not snowing down there,” Jennings said in a conference call Wednesday. “[I can] get out of the weather a little bit.” Still, that’s not the only reason the running back is looking forward to playing the Jaguars. He spent his first four NFL seasons as a Jaguar before he left as a free agent, spent a year in Oakland and then signed a four-year, $14 million deal with the Giants this year. read more
