CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus says recently retired tight end Tony Gonzalez will bring “a fresh and insightful perspective” to the network’s NFL pregame show.
Hut hut — roast! The Friars Club honored WFAN host and former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason at their annual roast and luncheon on Thursday, and we have the highlights.
Marino works with Boomer on Sundays on the “NFL Today” and they were quick to take some shots at each other.
Dan Marino is Mr. Miami, but he says that fact has no bearing on why he wants to see the Super Bowl played in southern Florida every year for the rest of time.
It’s not as toxic a topic as the New York/New Jersey border war, or as socially inflamed as the Richard Sherman saga. But, in a strictly sporting sense, it really is the topic du jour. If he wins Sunday’s Super Bowl, is Peyton Manning the greatest quarterback in NFL history?
Pete Carroll knows the Dan Marino-orchestrated play better than anyone. The Seattle Seahawks head coach was the rookie head coach of the Jets that day.
Manning and Brady will meet Sunday for the 15th time, and the fourth time in the postseason, when the Broncos (14-3) face the Patriots (13-4) in the AFC title game.
No matter who has the edge Sunday, it seems the nation is rooting for Manning, because it’s been harder for him to win, because he’s not so pretty, because he’s considered one of us, because you get the sense that his aw-shucks, southern refrain is real.
Boomer offered his take on the apparent budding feud between a couple of his NFL Today colleagues — Shannon Sharpe and Dan Marino — after the two Hall of Famers got into it a little bit.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said he plans to meet with Martin on Wednesday at an undisclosed location and that he has been in touch with the tackle through text messages.
The Giants need a lot of things to go right in order to reclaim elite status in the NFL. Having their quarterback return to his best form is one of them.
It just feels like the Super Bowl belongs here, the biggest game in the shade of the biggest city. We don’t need a Super Bowl. But it still would be pretty cool, even if it means a few aliens in our way for a week.
Here’s another story for this bizarre Super Bowl week.
With Championship Sunday right around the corner, Hall of Fame signal-caller Dan Marino called in to chat with Boomer and Craig.
Griffin III did what he was trained to do, as did the men who let him do it. Why can’t misfortune be enough? Why can’t we just leave it to the football gods? Because we’re too busy being gods ourselves.
