49ers make Scott Brown their new defensive line coach

The 49ers' Midwest regional scout for the past three seasons will continue with the team as its new defensive line coach. The San Francisco 49ers made another addition to Jim Tomsula's coaching staff on Saturday, hiring Scott Brown to be their defensive line coach, according to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports. It's an internal hiring, as Brown has been serving as the team's Midwest regional scout for the past three years. Obviously, this is notable given that the defensive line job is the one Tomsula held prior to getting his head coaching chance this offseason. For all of the controversy...

This Place, This Day

A Championship Will Be Won For a half million years past, human success and failure were equivalent to life and death. A few centuries in the future, machines will be the sole necessary producers, and success and failure will not even be possible outside of a completely synthetic framework. Today is a curious blend. Today, we must still exert ourselves for survival, but we are safe from sudden starvation. And while NFL teams compete within the artificial structure of a football game, the prerequisite achievements to reach that game are wholly organic. Rules constrain the number of men...

Super Bowl odds, Patriots-Seahawks: Close line hopefully means a close game

It seems that the oddsmakers aren't wrong very often when they put a line down on a game (and then the money coming in moves it). However it works out, the sportsbooks seem to know what's up. That's why I'm excited to see such a close line on the 2015 Super Bowl this Sunday between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. New England is currently a 1-point favorite (depending on where you look) after the Seahawks initially opened as a 2-point favorite. Click here to keep an eye on the odds. The line has been moving. This line tells me that folks are expecting a close game, which is...

Marshawn Lynch offered "huge" new contract extension, per report

The Seahawks have offered running back Marshawn Lynch a new, multi-year contract contract extension. According to Ian Rapoport, Seattle "not only wants Marshawn Lynch around next year, but they've made a significant commitment to keep him on their team, possibly, for the rest of his career." The new deal is expected to be worth north of $10 million in 2015, more than double his $5 million salary number on his current deal. The Hawks believe that Lynch has outplayed his contract, and want to reward him for that. The new offer also comes as an enticement to Lynch to put off retirement,...

2015 Super Bowl: Patriots vs. Seahawks breakdown

Super Bowl XLIX is coming. Enjoy it tonight. The end is nigh, friends. After tonight's Super Bowl 49, the 2014 season will finally be over, and the long offseason awaits. Given what the 2014 season brought for the Falcons, that will likely be a mercy. Tonight the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks will compete in a legacy-defining game, as loathe as I am to toss that weighty term around. A Patriots win will mean Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will be one of the winningest quarterback-coach duos in NFL history, and for many it will cement them as the greatest quarterback and coach in...

NFL Comeback Player of the Year voting features Jeremy Maclin tied for second place

The Eagles wide receiver probably should have earned more votes. The annual NFL Honors Awards Show was held in Arizona on the ever of Super Bowl 49 on Saturday night.

One Eagles player did finish in second place, however.
