A.J. Green is just 30 years of age and presumably still has a few more years left in his impressive career. But as far as the Cincinnati Bengals star is concerned, he is basically “guaranteed” to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Although, Green doesn’t want to just be considered among the best; he […] The post Bengals news: A.J.

Kiszla: How to orange crush Hall of Fame’s bias against Broncos? Gradishar, Bowlen and Bailey kick down the doors.

After decades of being regularly and ridiculously ignored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, 2019 is the year when the Broncos finally kick down the door and have their long-deserved night at the museum.

Randy Gradishar’s place in the Hall is long overdue

The time has come to enshrine one of the greatest players in NFL history in Canton, Ohio. When the name Randy Gradishar is mentioned, the response speaks to the problems with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The words one should hear is, “Hall of Fame linebacker.” Or, “One of the best to ever play the game.” Instead the response is disbelief. There’s just no way a player that good could have played for the Denver Broncos. So the 2,000 tackles Gradishar racked up in his career are fudged. They aren’t real. Because, remember, there’s just no way a guy that good could have played...

Mr. Pace and friends: Roquan Smith is back with the Bears, so what happens next?

Smith’s preseason standoff with the Bears will soon be a distant memory. Everything should be back on track at Halas Hall. Forget Roquan Smith missing almost every practice in the month since Bears rookies reported to training camp in Bourbonnais. Forget Smith’s two missed preseason games, one which of being an extra in the Hall of Fame Game. Forget the subtle public relations battle held in the media between Smith and the Bears. And forget the hair-pulling and ludicrous trade scenarios rooted out of frustration over the course of the last four weeks. None of that matters now. And it...

2018 Hall of Fame Inductees Announcement

I would first like to apologize for the delay in getting the results up for everyone and we still have more voting to go which has also been delayed as life continues to get in the way. Also my AirBNB did not have nearly the solid internet that I needed to post consistently. So after that info that no one probably cares about we get onto our announcements. This years class is a list of people that all deserve to be inducted and there were many others that missed the cut that would also have been equally deserving but there is next year and hopefully we can get these up earlier in the year...

Vikings at Denver: Post-Game Thoughts & Depth Charts

The Vikings looked impressive for the most part in their first pre-season game - which was not the case last season - getting some good play from some surprising players while the starters took care of business in limited action. SPIELMAN OUTDUELS ELWAY This may sound like a strange opening, but based on this game, and maybe a little more, Vikings GM Rick Spielman clearly got the better of Hall of Fame QB and Broncos GM John Elway when it comes to acquiring quarterbacks for their roster. Cousins looked better than Keenum, Siemian looked better than Lynch, and Sloter looked better than...

The Real Rules of Preseason Football

Just because the games don’t count doesn’t mean that they don’t matter. There seems to be some confusion among 32 fan bases about how to react to preseason football games. Bears and Ravens fans, of course, have a one-game lead on the rest of the sports world because we got to ‘enjoy’ the Hall of Fame game, as well. Therefore, as a public service, I would like to offer the following six real rules for preseason football. 1. If a favored player plays well, he’s going to the Pro Bowl. This is especially true of high draft picks, players coming back off of injury, and recent free...
