CEO Jeffrey Lurie Explains Making of the Super Bowl Ring

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera // @rxnlzbth

There’s no denying that the owners of any professional sports team genuinely loves their team. They invest in their team, they market their team, they are proud of their team and they stand behind their team even through the darkest of times.

But since I’ve only followed one CEO, one chairman, for the past 15 years, I think it’s safe to say that Philadelphia Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie, takes the cake. I can prove it by how much effort he put into designing the Super Bowl LII championship rings. Read on to find out the amount of love he poured into each and every one.

The New Look of the Seattle Seahawks Defense

Senior Sports Editor

“Before the LOB [Legion of Boom] was the LOB, they were just a bunch of kids outta college trying to make a name on the field. They had to start somewhere, and I feel like why can’t we?”

Without knowing it, Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald possibly summed up the Seattle Seahawks 2018 defense in one quote.

The six-year vet is getting a lot of press lately due to the contract holdout of safety Earl Thomas and the medical status of S Kam Chancellor. However, he is not the only “new guy” that could be making a splash this season. There are a handful of players ready to continue the great tradition of defense for Seattle.

Can Trubisky Lead the Chicago Bears in Year Two?

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The hype train has made its way to Chicago. A new head coach, several new weapons added from free agency and the NFL Draft and a young second-year quarterback to lead them.  

It’s a lot to put on the shoulders of a 23-year old. But when this has been your dream since childhood, you better be ready.

Having been taken number two overall in the 2017 NFL Draft after only playing one full season at North Carolina, the pressure to prove himself was an understatement. Unfortunately, quarterback Mitch Trubisky was thrown in without a chance to learn a system and make it his own.

Poor coaching and play calling overshadowed his true talent. But this year is different. This year Trubisky will play with a swagger the NFL did not get to see. His love of the game will be on display and it will show in a big way.

Can Trubisky lead the Chicago Bears to a winning season in 2018? I tend to think so for several reasons.

NFL gives no R-E-S-P-E-C-T to Bears RB Jordan Howard

Official Chicago Bears Fan Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63  

Every year the NFL lists the top 100 players who were voted by players as a means of respect for what they do on the field. Some of those players don’t even have to play the whole season to get on this list. Adrian Peterson was on the 2017 list and missed the entire season. Since this article will be solely based on running backs currently mentioned on the 2018 list, it is a crying shame that Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard is missing.

So far on this list are RB Carlos Hyde, rookie Leonard Fournette, Mark Ingram, Ezekiel Elliott (suspension and all), and Devonta Freeman. The fact of the matter is that in 2017, nine running backs were on that list, including Peterson; LeGarrette Blount, Jay Ajayi, Freeman, DeMarco Murray, LeSean McCoy, David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, and Elliott.

100 days until football: How do we pass the time?

Senior Sports Editor

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

Today it is officially 100 days until the NFL kicks off its 2018 season. 100 days until our favorite sport returns to fill our Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays with gridiron goodness. What will the average sports fan do to pass the time? I have a few ideas for you.

If you are into repetitive sporting events, the NBA Finals are right up your alley! You may have heard, but the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are going to the NBA finals. Again. For the fourth year in a row.

The questions surrounding Earl Thomas

Senior Sports Editor Seahawks Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

 

Let me just say straight from the start, any questions that surround Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas have nothing to do with him as a player. He is, without question, a once in a generation safety. The only questions around Thomas have to do with his contract and his team.

With that out of the way…

I am a firm believer that once you have a player that absolutely dominates in his position within the NFL, you hold on to him. When a player has the term “Future Hall of Famer” attached to him, you keep him. You pay him. Of course, every player starts to decline at some point, but until that point (or even just slightly past), you keep him on your roster. In this reporter’s opinion, this is the case with Earl Thomas.

New Sports Betting Laws and the NFL

Kate Arhar
OTFB Browns Reporter

 

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8

On Monday, a Supreme Court ruling opened the door for states to legalize sports betting. Up until now, Nevada was the only state where you could legally place a wager on sports events. While the ruling itself does not make sports gambling legal, it does move the regulating of these wagers back to being a state-level issue.

The basic thought behind the ruling goes back to the U. S. Constitution: anything not specifically designated as being under federal jurisdiction belongs to the states. Meaning – the federal government can regulate gambling but since it has so far chosen not to, states can now enact legislation to legalize sports gambling or repeal previous laws making it illegal.

This situation begs a ton of questions. Socially, financially and game integrity issues must be considered.

Chicago Bears 53-Man Prediction and Then Some

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

With rookie mini-camp complete and OTAs underway, the Chicago Bears are slowly putting together a well-balanced team.  Ryan Pace and company have done their due diligence in signing key players that will have an immediate impact on the team.

But it’s those additional spots, the supplemental players that will have to be ready to step in on a moment’s notice.  Who will make a statement in training camp that they belong on this team? Who will shine when it matters and when it counts?

Bringing Up Matt Patricia’s Past

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN 

Late Wednesday night, an article was released on the Detroit News website regarding a sexual assault that indicated involvement by Lions Head Coach Matt Patricia.

The alleged assault took place in the spring of 1996, when Patricia and his friend, Greg Dietrich, “violently sexually assaulted” a victim on a spring break trip in Texas.  Both men were arrested, charged and indicted, but never got to go to trial.  According to the article, “the victim felt that she couldn’t face the pressures and stress of a trial” and the trial was dismissed.

Most Lions fans have chalked this up to clickbait, and a bunch of nothing.  Which surprised me a little, but that’s fine.  However, I think something to keep in mind is that if there was a “good” time for this to surface, the offseason is just that.  It’s the offseason.  This shouldn’t be a distraction later on down the road when the Lions are making a playoff push (I’m wishfully thinking here!).
