Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith gets full-time work in Oakland

Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith gets full-time work in Oakland SEATTLE — The only Super Bowl MVP the Seahawks have ever had walked off the plane Wednesday afternoon, hoping to gives the fans here and back in Oakland a fuller look at himself. Malcolm Smith, performance in Super Bowl XLVIII aside, was a part-time player in Seattle, starting 16 games in four seasons. His interception off Richard Sherman’s tip sent the 49ers home in the NFC Championship Game in January 2014. Smith laughed off the luck factor, saying, I have always put myself in position to make plays. In Sunday’s loss...

Former Falcon Donte Rumph reflects on being cut, remains hopeful about NFL future

Donte Rumph, who was waived by the Falcons during the 2014 preseason, hasn't given up hope on a future in the NFL. Falcons fans remember Donte Rumph from his turn on Hard Knocks last season.

Could Chip Kelly roll into the season with only two quarterbacks on the active roster? The Eagles play their final preseason game of the year on Thursday, and all eyes will be on the battle for the third string quarterback job. Incumbent Matt Barkley and challenger Tim Tebow have been locked in a tight contest, with all signs pointing to Tebow getting the nod when the roster is whittled down to 53 players this weekend. Despite reports to the contrary, head coach Chip Kelly has said that he needs to see both quarterbacks in another game before making his final decision on who to keep. But...

2015 NFL countdown: 11 days to kickoff and FITZ!

The other players don't really matter anyway. There are only 11 days left until the start of the 2015 regular season for the Arizona Cardinals. That means we focus on a number very near and dear to our Cardinals fan hearts -- 11. It is Larry Fitzgerald. All the others don't matter. Fitz is the guy, the most important figure in recent team history. Yes, some forgettable quarterbacks like Jeff Blake, Jay Schroeder and Kent Graham wore it, but all we care about is Fitz. Fitz was here with the worst. Fitz almost won us a Super Bowl with his touchdown catch and run. He is the all-time franchise...

Trio of rookies offer Giants hope of brighter future

Flowers, Collins, Odighizuwa impressing. During preseason you look for signs. Signs that certain players may be able to help more than you anticipated. Signs that clue you in that perhaps some guys aren't going to give you what you hoped for. Signs that your young players are catching on. Signs of what your team's strengths and weaknesses are. Signs that your team is getting better as the regular season approaches. Amidst all the negativity being spewed by some in the fan base, the fiasco that has become the Jason Pierre-Paul situation, the befuddling injuries that seemingly won't go away...
