Ravens 2017

Official Baltimore Ravens Reporter

By Yvette James // @lissalisa29

In recent news, the Baltimore Ravens signed FA Jeremy Maclin after having him visit us last week. He also had a visit with the Buffalo Bills as well. His signing was a much needed addition to our wide receiver corp. His veteran presence is a good fit only if our offensive coach uses him correctly.

How many times have we had good wide receivers and they were not used properly? Either we are going to use them correctly or we will be in the same position we were in last season.

Who will step in at the tight end position now that Dennis Pitta has retired due to his injury? We have plenty to pick from, hopefully, they will step up and produce. We will see come training camp who steps up and make plays.

NF: Where did you learn about football – When? and from Who?

CC: I learned football on my Pop’s knee. He was a semi-pro player, and our family went to football games all the time.  It is woven into the very fibre of my being. We went to high school games on Friday, Tiger Stadium on Saturday and before the New Orleans Saints came into existence, we rooted for the Detroit Lions.  

My Dad took us to the first Saints game in Tulane Stadium, and he has been a Saints ticket holder since day one.  He would put two TVs side by side to watch two games at once and have the radio on as well.  He is a wild man when it comes to football.  On Thanksgiving he and my younger brother come over and we watch football all day together.

Chicago Bears Share the Bear Facts

Chicago Bears Official Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The shock of the NFL Draft is over for Chicago Bears fans and it’s a good thing. The Bears can now focus on developing a team whose goal is to win games and make last season’s horrible 3-13 nightmare disappear.

Despite the “wonderful outlook” for the 2017 season by ESPN, Sports Illustrated and the NFL Network, (sarcasm intended), the Bears are not taking anything for granted. According to bearswire.com, general Manager Ryan Pace was graded with a D+ by 15 NFL Executives for his off season moves.

His grading was based on lack-luster veteran free agent signings and the gutsy moves in “selling the farm” for the second overall pick in quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Frankly, these owners see the Bears transactions as “scrambling to get to 6-10 or 8-8.” As a matter of fact to them, the offseason was the signing of “a lot of mediocre players on mediocre deals.”

Tell that to the face of defensive backs Prince Amukamara and Quintin Demps or wide receivers Marcus Wheaton or Kendall Wright. The only way these players are going to prove they deserve a shot is to show it on the field. The voluntary OTAs proved to be an opportunity for players and rookies to show that they are ready and hungry to win games. To assume that these players have nothing to offer is absurd and disrespectful.

Quick 5 with Teverly Lazenby, Raiders OR

Come chat Raiders with me // @teverlyl

NF: Where did you learn about football – When? and from Who?

TL: I began to learn about football from watching my father coach a local high school football team.  I was just a kid, about 4 or 5 years old. My father would take care of me on the weekends. In addition to watching him coach I would watch USC football and Rams games with him.

NF: Priorities of Life – What are your top 3?

TL: My top 3 priorities in life are my health, my closest friends and family, and obviously my life revolves around sports (More specifically football).
