  2. "Dallas fans have always had mixed feelings toward Romo due to his playoff record and quantity of interceptions " Ignorant Dallas fans might have mixed feelings because they listen only to the media. Knowledgeable fans know that Romo has a lower INT rate than both Aikman and Staubach.

  4. It would be surprising to tell your 2015 self that Landon Collins just won NFC East Defensive Player of the Year. A season ago, Collins was a rookie safety who looked lost and out of sorts. Because of the travesty that was the rest of the defense surrounding him, Collins was forced to play out of position at free safety. He was not equipped to play in space or defend the pass. He also wasn’t being utilized in the box or on the blitz as often as he should have been. That all changed this season. Collins was slid over to strong safety, playing to his strengths as a football player. He became a force all over the field, at one point leading the New York Giants in tackles, sacks, and interceptions. That do-everything production helped carry the Giants to one of the very best defenses in the NFL. After being one of the worst the season before, Collins had flipped the script on himself, as well as the team at-large. He was rewarded by the ESPN journalists by being named the division’s Defensive MVP. As the Dallas Cowboys beat writer reluctantly rewarded Collins, he reiterated that Collins “was the only player in NFL history to record at least 100 tackles, two sacks, five interceptions, and 12 pass deflections [in a season].” He owned his position and made headlines for a team that had spent major dollars to improve the spots surrounding him. Now, the question becomes, what are Collins’ chances of taking home this award league-wide? Unlike some of these other NFC East awards, Collins is certainly in the discussion for NFL DPOY. The Pro Football Writers of America gave out their awards, with the big defensive honor going to Khalil Mack. Though this honor can often align with the AP award at the end of the postseason, it doesn’t always. Collins is still in the running. The expert panel at Sports Illustrated did not at all agree with the PFWA choice. However, it also didn’t favor Collins. Most of the writers selected Von Miller to take home the hardware, with one citing Collins, and no one picking Mack. The discrepancy actually favors Collins. In a year where there was no clear winner, an up-and-comer has a good chance of breaking through. It is the case of improvement in production overshadowing an equal output; why Shaquille O’Neal or Mike Trout didn’t win as many MVP’s as they should have. Voters are always more entranced by the new guy who becomes elite rather than the old guard who stays elite. That course of human nature could pay off for Collins in February.

  7. Boras becomes the TE coach for Bills, heading back to where he belongs It’s official: Rob Boras is no longer the Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator. Boras left the Rams to become tight ends coach with the Buffalo Bills. It’s a position he’s held practically everywhere he’s been to, including with the Rams. But when the team moved to Los Angeles following the end of the 2015 season, Boras was the offensive coordinator. He originally applied to be the offensive coordinator in 2015, but lost the job to Frank Cignetti. When Cignetti was fired from that post with a month left to go in the season, Boras was named the interim coordinator. Then, Jeff Fisher just kept him there. The Rams were the first team, at any level, to see Boras as their offensive coordinator, and it showed. The Rams offense finished this season at the bottom of the barrel, again, for the second year-in-a-row. Dead last. Their best offensive player, Todd Gurley, took a nose dive in rushing production, the offensive line seemed to be completely clueless as to what the play was (or what the concept of blocking was), and the two quarterbacks the Rams started could not get anything done. The Rams kicker, once again, was their best chance at scoring points in 2016. While many want to rejoice as Boras heads out the door to settle in up north, there should be some context. Boras was not the sole reason, and not even the biggest reason why the Rams offense was so bad. He was a victim of circumstance and wasn’t given the proper tools to succeed. A coach’s role is to instruct their players and make them better, yes, but when you have the youngest, and most inexperienced squad in the league, that is easier said than done. A lot of Boras’ plays were blown up, sometimes almost immediately following the snap of the ball, thanks to the offensive line. Boras leaving the team is the best option for both parties. Boras was in over his head, hindered by Fisher’s inability to adapt the team’s offense and remove the weak players from the unit, and Boras didn’t seem to have an answer for the many puzzles facing this offense.

  9. @FFDynasty260 you're probably right, I can see Henry getting a bigger role in TEN too. Hard to bet vs. Jordy tho, he's Rodgers RZ guy

  10. @tacobell thank you for what you have done tonight. 🙏❤ https://t.co/59sFgAoilu

  11. @bricco24 I don't see him playing. I hope he can tough it out and contribute, just don't see it. Packers tend to error on side of caution

  12. Be safe tomorrow. Every single one of you. I got nothing but love. Signing out for now.

  13. @BHeintzSKOL despite their hot streak, the Wild dropping easy games and giving up big leads worries me

  14. Dallas Cowboys legendary receiver Michael Irvin has been a huge supporter of America’s Team this season. Focusing on the impressiveness of the rookie-led offense, Irvin has sung Dallas’s praises to the masses. Irvin expected a Super Bowl from this year’s Cowboys team. When they lost Sunday night in the divisional round of the playoffs to the Green Bay Packers, Irvin was crushed. "I am in a state of depression," Irvin said on 105.3FM The Fan, via Dallas Morning News. "Devastated. Really, really devastated. I told you before, in this state I just got to lay down and try to get past the moment. I find myself waking up and watching the game again. Like why am I watching the game still? There's nothing we can do about it now.” Irvin is not just upset the team lost. Rather, he’s upset because of how they lost. "I was expecting victory all day. I got in a state of doubt at 21-3 'cause it looked like, okay, this thing here is over," Irvin said. "But then they fought back so I was happy about that." "I hate to point it out because it's probably a small play," Irving began. "But at the end of that game when we got it all tied 31-31 and they had a few seconds left. I think it was Ty Montgomery, (Rodgers) gave the ball to [running back] Ty Montgomery for a pass or something. [Cornerback] Brandon Carr knifed in and he broke that tackle and he went running for another I don't know how many yards and he went out of bounds. "I said to myself, 'Darn it. That's the play. That's the play right there.' Because if you stop them there, maybe they call a timeout. But he got the extra 15 yards plus out of bounds to set up the play to Jared Cook." Many Cowboys fans have quickly moved on from the heartbreaking loss already. Choosing to focus on the positives, most of Cowboys Nation is excited to see what the future of this young team holds. Not Irvin. He’s still upset. "A lot of people are saying, 'What about next year? What about next year?' I'm not ready to start talking about next year right now. I'm still mourning this year. I'll move to next year sometime later on. Right now, probably at least through the Super Bowl, I'm just going to stay in mourning about this year." View full NFL news story

  17. RT @NFLFilmStudy: I just looked up Reuben Foster's stats. He had 0 career forced fumbles and interceptions. He's hard to not love but that'…

  21. Following the Houston Texans' AFC Divisional loss to the New England Patriots last weekend, defensive tackle Vince Wilfork told reporters that he had most likely played his final NFL game. Apparently, it didn't take the big fella too long to shift his attention elsewhere. Just this week, the 35-year-old posted this commercial on his social accounts: Wilfork, who spent his first 11 seasons in New England from 2004-2014, pokes fun at his good friend Tom Brady in this promotion for Intel's new 360-degree instant replay technology. This isn't Brady's first tie to Intel either. The Patriots signal-caller will be featured in this ad during the Super Bowl. If Wilfork has officially hung up the cleats, it looks like he could have a future in television. It's always wise to have a backup plan, Big Vince. View full NFL news story
