Will improved mechanics really improve Colin Kaepernick?

Many are involved with Colin Kaepernick’s throwing motion. (Photo by Stephen Dunn/)Former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Kurt Warner recently weighed in on his sessions with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. “We tried to engage his lower half,” Warner told the Boston Globe. “As a quarterback, when you can throw with your body, you don’t have to throw it 100 m.p.h. with your arm, and that’s where the touch develops.” Solid base leads to repeatable throws, which leads to greater accuracy. Makes sense. Of course Warner is not sure Kaepernick can correct the issue within the eight...

Wrestlemania 31 results: Seth Rollins pins Roman Reigns to take Brock Lesnar's heavyweight championship

After three months of build-up, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns finally squared off at Wrestlemania 31, and we got a stunning finish that will be talked about for some time. Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank contract and pinned Reigns while Brock Lesnar was laid out following a curb stomp and spear. It capped off a wildly entertaining Wrestlemania 31. Lesnar dominated virtually the entire match. He hit double digit suplexes, and nailed numerous F-5s on Reigns. However, just as he seemed ready to win, a reversal into a ring post outside the ring cut him open. He was woozy from...

Wrestlemania 31 results: Undertaker defeats Bray Wyatt after two Tombstone piledrivers

After a year of waiting, the dead man made his return to the WWE ring. Bray Wyatt spent the last two months demanding the Undertaker show his face, going so far as to show up in a coffin. Undertaker responded, accepting a match, but even amidst that he never made an appearance leading up to Wrestlemania. Finally though, he arrived, and he emerged victorious after a second Tombstone piledriver. Wyatt made his entrance to the ring, and after a brief pause, was followed by the gong of the Undertaker. He made his way to the ring, and they went right at it from the bell. Undertaker dominated...

Free Agency: Buccaneers overreact by pursuing familiarity on defense

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been oddly focused on players familiar with their scheme. Specifically, players who played for Lovie Smith in Chicago or Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli in Dallas, as the Tampa Tribune points out. Bruce Carter, Chris Conte, Sterling Moore and Henry Melton all fit that description. That's something they didn't do at all last year, and the result was obvious: a defense where players struggled to adjust to a new scheme. The Bucs were one of the worst defenses in the NFL over the first six weeks of the season, but then improved to a top-five defense over the second...

Who's Left In Free Agency That Could Help The Minnesota Vikings?

The big free agent rush has pretty much died down to this point, and everyone attention is officially shifting to the 2015 NFL Draft, which will kick off in Chicago exactly one month from tomorrow. Yes, we still have a whole month of mock drafts to look forward to, but it will be over quickly enough. I'm not sure how active the Minnesota Vikings are going to be in free agency following the veritable flurry of three signings over the course of a couple of days this past week. However, there are still some players out there that could help the Vikings. As of now, according to the folks...

5 Reasons the Rams Should Sign Michael Crabtree

Could Crabtree hold the key to the Rams offense? The owners meetings traditionally signal a shift in focus for NFL GMs. The high profile Free Agents have long since been signed while big boards and pre-draft visits begin to dominate the discussion. That doesn't mean that  there aren't free agents out there still worth the Rams attention. One of those free agents is former 49er Michael Crabtree. He entered the league with substantial hype after a prolific career in Texas Tech's high flying offense, eclipsing 3,000 yards and 40 TDs in only two seasons on campus. While he has largely failed...
