TSF Friday Fire: Who Or What Scared You As A Kid?

Posted in Blogroll on October 29th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

In observance of Halloween I was curious to know who or what frightened our readers the most as youngsters.  I went into the ol’ memory bank and I resurfaced with someone that I had repressed for awhile. I was so terrified of this individual that whenever he was in the area I made sure that I didn’t wander too far from the house.

NFL Questions And (Maybe Some) Answers for Week 6

Posted in Blogroll on October 19th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

Good Morning TSF Family, player safety will be the issue at hand this week as the league has passed down a new ruling that will severely fine and suspend players for helmet to helmet contact and “devastating” hits like the one placed on the Philadelphia Eagles DeSean Jackson (above). “Flashin’ “Brett Favre meets with NFL Security today and does Andy Reid really think having Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb is a luxury?

Ron Glover’s Week 6 NFL Predictions

Posted in Blogroll on October 17th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

 

“I feel like we can continue to get better and really get this thing rolling,” the Bucs’ Josh Freeman, left, says of working with Mike Williams.

We’re six weeks into the NFL season and to be honest no one has really separated themselves from the pack, yes there are eight one-loss teams but half of them did not make the playoffs last season. Fools gold? We’ll see.

As for the matchups this week several of these games could honestly go either way: Miami travels to Green Bay to face the Packers as Aaron Rogers tries to shake off last weeks concussion. The Ravens take on the Patriots, the surprise Chiefs meets the Texans, Michael Vick will sit out this one as the Eagles take on the Falcons, the Redskins try to keep momentum going as they welcome in the Colts. The reeling Saints meet the Bucs who ended their undefeated streak last season. Who will win the battle of 1-3 teams as the Vikings and Cowboys meet in Minnesota?  The week ends with a battle for the AFC South lead as the Titans travel to Jacksonville to face the Jaguars.

Byes: Bills, Bengals, Cardinals, Panthers

The Black Quarterback: Change the Narrative

Posted in Blogroll on October 15th, 2010 by Michael Tillery

Denard Robinson has two games of 200/200 during the 2010 campaign…a record.

Quarterbacks are the most scrutinized athletes in sports. The great ones are deified while the greatly misunderstood are criticized. Young talent shredding veteran defenses are marketed for the next generation, while hyped former number 1 picks ride the pine making millions holding clip boards. The system of evaluating quarterbacks should be based on merit and not what our perception of what a quarterback should be. Times are changing and a new wave of athlete is poised to storm the NFL like never before. Over the horizon flies a crop of poised signal callers that will change the way we view the position and race is an issue whether you realize it or not.

History is documented through repetition. If it’s written, it will be remembered. These pieces should not have to be written but if the Black quarterback is to be taken seriously with history in mind, they must be penned…

This is not for those who are socially grounded but more for those who seek to divide true fans of sport.

Ron Glover’s NFL Week 5 Recap

Posted in Blogroll on October 12th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

What a day for the unexpected, and costly turnovers – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers go into Cincinnati and literally take one from the Bengals 24-21, the shaky Arizona Cardinals don’t score and offensive touchdown and still defeat the Saints 30-20 as Drew Brees throws three interceptions. In classic AFL style, the Raiders and Chargers had everything but the Holy Roller as the Silver and Black outlasted the Chargers in a shocker 35-27. Finally “Old Man Savvy” one ups a second up and comer in as many weeks as Donovan McNabb and the Redskins defeat Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers 16-13 in overtime.

Ron Glover’s Week 5 NFL Predictions

Posted in Blogroll on October 10th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

We’re a quarter of the way through the NFL season and there have been some surprises. The Kansas City Chiefs remain undefeated, Michael Vick has rejuvenated his career while he heals from a rib injury. The Albert Haynesworth/Mike Shanahan drama continues and it hasn’t really affected the Redskins – yet. But the biggest news came this week as Randy Moss returns to the Minnesota Vikings in a trade after three-plus productive seasons in New England.

Today’s games include the Chiefs at the Colts, AFC passing leader Kyle Orton faces his biggest test as the Broncos face the Ravens, Julius Peppers returns to Carolina as the Bears face the Panthers and Moss returns to Revis Island (provided he plays) as the Vikings and Jets square off Monday Night.

Byes this week: Dolphins, Patriots, Steelers and Seahawks
