Shocking Cowboys News! The Dez Bryant Video Has Still Not Been Located!

The video that will reveal all about the horrible and shocking events in the WalMart parking lot is still nowhere to be found! In a development that must come as a complete and total surprise to anyone who has just emerged from a several month long coma, the incriminating, no, absolutely damning video of the Dallas Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant has once again NOT BEEN FOUND! Those individuals who were unconscious or have not seen any of the many, many reports about this much sought after bit of surveillance last heard how it was going to be released at any time, like the next day, or the...

Charles Haley to announce San Francisco 49ers second round pick

The NFL announced earlier this week that 32 former NFL legends will announce the second round picks of the 2015 NFL Draft. The league does this every year, and it affords some all-time greats a chance to get some air time. This year, Charles Haley is going to announce the San Francisco 49ers second round pick. Haley will be inducted into the Hall of Fame later this summer. The induction is long overdue, as Haley was one of the greatest pass rushing threats of all time, and the only person to win five Super Bowl rings as an NFL player. The Cincinnati Bengals will have their pick announced by...

The Atlanta Falcons' new, $1.5 billion stadium is environmentally friendly

Fact: the Dome is not ecofriendly The Atlanta Falcons' new stadium is expensive ... very expensive. No expense will be spared as Arthur Blank tries to one up Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. You can quibble about personal seat licenses and question the economic merits of a new stadium, but let's be honest, it's going to bankrupt us all be pretty freaking cool. But now there's an added feature every fan can love: environmentally-friendly design!

2015 NFL Mock Draft: Detroit Lions Select OT Andrus Peat at No. 23

With the No. 23 pick in the DBN 2015 NFL Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions select... Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford The selection and write-up were made by tmptplayer: The Lions have needs at DT (after losing Suh/Fairely), OL (after losing two starters) and WR.  Andrus Peat is evaluated by some as a top 10 talent and is an easy pick by the Lions here at #23. Peat, the son of former NFL Guard Todd Peat, is a 6-7 317lb OT Junior out of Stanford with elite size and solid technique. He is very good at both run and pass blocking demonstrated against first rate competition in the Pac-12, but has the...

Eagles Trade Rumors: Philadelphia targeting Marcus Mariota at No. 2 in three-way draft deal

Hey it's another 2015 NFL Draft rumor. There is less than a week remaining until the 2015 NFL Draft. This also means that there is less than a week of Marcus Mariota trade rumors to go. The latest rumor comes from Jason Cole of Bleacher Report. Cole reports that the Eagles want Mariota (surprise!!!) and are targeting a creative trade up to No. 2 to get him. "As the NFL Draft nears, one of the dream scenarios that is being invented among general managers and executives out there is the possibility of a three-way trade that would involve Tennessee with the No. 2 overall pick, and some...

Cowboys 2015 Draft: Can Dallas Continue Its Recent Success In The Draft?

At best the draft, any draft in any sport, is a crap shoot. Sometimes you win big, sometimes you lose your shirt, and most of the time it is somewhere in the middle. One thing that most of us can agree on is that Dallas has done fairly well over the past few drafts. One might even go so far as to say that the Cowboys have exceeded expectations in recent years. In the last few years the team has selected Dez Bryant, Tyron Smith, Morris Claiborne, Travis Frederick, and Zach Martin during the first round. Four of the five have earned their keep and then some, earning league-wide recognition...

Getting ready for Warriors basketball on an otherwise quiet Thursday afternoon

We are a week away from the 2015 NFL Draft, and things are a wee bit quiet. I figured I would put together an open thread to close out the day, assuming nothing of particular note pops up tonight. Famous last words, right? The Golden State Warriors are in action tonight, headed to New Orleans looking to take a 3-0 lead on the Pelicans. The game tips off at 6:30 p.m. PT, so feel free to chat about the game in here. The Warriors had to dig down a little bit in Game 2, so we'll see if they can push the Pelicans to the brink. The Giants won earlier today, beating the Dodgers 3-2 and completing...

Mocking the Draft's Dan Kadar stops by the Real in the Field Gulls podcast to talk his mocking of said drafts

Dan Kadar of Mocking the Draft, SB Nation's source for everything about the NFL draft, joined the Real in the Field Gulls podcast this week to talk about a number of topics. Most relevant of those topics? You guessed it: The 2015 NFL Draft! This is especially relevant to the Seattle Seahawks because of all the picks they have in the top 62. Dan's latest Mock Okay, so nothing going on the top 62, but after that, they do have considerably more picks than any other team. Kadar talked to us about sleepers, guys he thinks may be a good fit for Seattle with their late second round pick, why he...

NFL Mock Draft 2015: Mel Kiper-Todd McShay results in Eagles picking Marcus Peters at No. 20

Check out our (2015 Eagles mock draft central) for more opinions on who could be the #20 pick in April. ESPN ran a special SportsCenter segment on Thursday night that featured a live mock draft with draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay. Kiper already released his Version 5.0 earlier this week, but this live edition featured analysts alternating picks in the first round. Instead of Kiper projecting Landon Collins to the Eagles at No. 2 this time, he has them taking a different defensive back: Washington cornerback Marcus Peters. Here's his explanation: "Marcus Peters,...

Porous offensive line or not, Matt Ryan's decision making has to improve in 2014

Fact: Matt Ryan invented Cool Ranch Doritos Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is fantastic. Fans constantly debate whether he's "elite," but as franchise quarterbacks go, we could do much worse. But Ryan's decision making suffered in 2014. Ryan threw 14 interceptions in 2014. He has thrown 14 interceptions 3 times in his career. He threw a career-high 17 interceptions in 2013. That said, his interception total in 2014, while less-than-ideal, doesn't accurately depict his poor decision making. According to Football Outsiders, Ryan should have thrown a career high 18...

Justin Pugh: Murphy is going to love me no matter what

The Giants' Justin Pugh talks about the draft and the offensive line. With the start of the New York Giants' offseason training program has come a number of press conferences.

2015 NFL Mock Draft: Philadelphia Eagles Select OT La'el Collins at No. 20

With the No. 20 pick in the DBN 2015 NFL Mock Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select... La'el Collins, OT, LSU The selection and write-up were made by Matt Wood: I had WR Nelson Agholor penciled in here when I took the Eagles in this draft, but Collins falling into my lap was too hard to pass up. The Eagles need some OL help and Collins should play right away. While the Eagles need WR help, this is once again a deep class and help can be found later. The same cannot be said at OT. You have to take those guys early. Chip gets a bookend to Lane Johnson and whoever ends up taking snaps after...

2015 49ers' Opponents: Cleveland Browns Free Agency Edition

We take a look at what the Cleveland Browns have done in free agency and what needs they might have in the upcoming draft. Like the other three teams in the AFC North, the Cleveland Browns dived into free agency, addressing needs and adding depth. Unlike the other teams, the Browns have a bit of a bigger hole to dig themselves out of, and that hole only became deeper this offseason when WR Josh Gordon was suspended and quarterback Johnny Manziel checked himself into rehab. The QB position continues to be a problematic position for the Browns. Brian Hoyer, who started last season well, left...

2015 NFL Draft: Positional Big Board (OLB)

The Rams aren't in terrible need of an outside linebacker, but they aren't set at the position either. Let's look at this year's draft options. A week from the draft, it's safe to say anticipation is building. The Rams are sitting at ten with an entourage of potential moves available to them. It's unknown whether they'll move up, move down or even stay put. Anyways, let's look at one position that the Rams may be interested in drafting: OLB. Though Akeem Ayers was signed over the offseason, the Rams could still use an edge rusher. Jo-Lonn Dunbar is okay, but okay just doesn't cut it in the...

NFL Draft 2015: Pick #63, the last ten years

The Seahawks have the unfortunate disadvantage of being the last team picking in the 2015 NFL Draft, with their first selecting not coming until #63. Of course, they do have Jimmy Graham on their roster now, but seeing 62 picks go off the board before Seattle's name is called is going to be a very difficult exercise in patience. Nonetheless, there should be a great deal of talent once the Seahawks finally get to hand in their draft card, and to give you an idea of the type of contributor you'd expect a late second rounder to be (or hope for them to be), let's take an look at the last ten...

Mike Mayock suggests Arik Armstead is 49ers logical pick at No. 15

The San Francisco 49ers have needs along the defensive line, and people see them going defensive line early in the 2015 NFL Draft. Is Armstead the guy? Mike Mayock thinks it makes sense. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock had another marathon draft conference call on Thursday, and in it he had a chance to address the San Francisco 49ers needs. He suggested that the 49ers would look defensive line, inside linebacker and wide receiver in the first two days, and that Oregon defensive lineman Arik Armstead was the "logical" pick at No. 15. Mayock looks at Armstead from the perspective of his...

Jerry Reese: Takeaways from GM's press conference

Key points from GM Jerry Reese's press conference on Thursday. All kidding aside about the reliance on tired, predictable cliches by New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese, there were some things that could be learned from Reese's remarks on Thursday during his pre-draft press conference. Here are some of the key takeaways. Character counts ... especially early Every player the Giants took in the 2014 NFL Draft has been a collegiate team captain. Reese said that reliance on character is not new for the Giants. "We're always mindful of a player's character and background. That always...
