Get to know Ana Krasuski, our new Indianapolis Colts reporter

By Ana Krasuski //  @ana_krasuski

Let’s start with a little background. October 29, 2006 was my NFL epiphany.

On that day the Indianapolis Colts visited the Denver Broncos in week eight of their historic Super Bowl winning season. This is also the day that I fell in love with football and decided to become a Colts fan.

I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado but never felt that I belonged to the Broncos fandom, partially because my father is a die-hard Buffalo Bills fan and a bonafide Bronco hater. I never really knew which team to follow until that October day when I watched Peyton Manning rocket 345 yards and three touchdowns.

Green Bay Packers: News & Views

Contributor, Green Bay Packers

By Lucy Rendler-Kaplan // @LUCYrk78

2017 was a disappointing season in Green Bay. When Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone in Week 6, the situation was made even worse by it happening against our biggest rivals, the Minnesota Vikings.

It would have seemed that Rodgers going down was an opportunity for Brett Hundley to step up. Though we hadn’t seen much out of Hundley (players second to Rodgers rarely will, except in the case of extreme emergency), we’d heard great things.

However, there was nothing exciting or hopeful for the Packers’ season once Hundley took the field. In the 10 games that Hundley started and played in, the team made only 21 red zone trips, Rodgers made those same 21 trips in only six games. Of those 21 red zone trips, “the team was able to move the ball inside the 10-yard line only 42.8 percent of the time,” according to Fansided.

My Thoughts on a Shady Situation

Official Lions Reporter

 

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

By now,  you’re all aware of the news that broke Football Twitter yesterday morning around 11 am.  Just in case you’re not, here’s a brief recap.  Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy was accused by his ex-girlfriend’s best friend of beating his ex-girlfriend, beating a dog so badly that it put the dog into kidney failure, and beating his son for wetting the bed.  She also accused him of using drugs and PEDs.

McCoy then released a statement saying that the claims are false and that he hasn’t had any contact with the people who were involved for months.

Obviously, things are looking terrible for McCoy right now.  While yes, the circumstances are a little suspect around the entire thing and we don’t know the entire story, domestic violence in the NFL has been brought back to the forefront.

Three UFDA Players to Watch at Chicago Bears Training Camp

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Training camp couldn’t come any faster for Chicago Bears fans and it is earlier than usual due to the Hall of Fame game scheduled for August 2, 2018. The hype will be on return players, drafted players, and new additions.  The focus here will be on the undrafted free agents who are hoping to grab a spot on the roster or even practice squad. But most likely it will be a free-for-all audition with teams watching closely as to whom to grab when cut.

There are three UDFA that will need to shine in training camp and transfer it on the field. What better way than to display one’s talent than on national television. Let’s start with the offense.

Why the Lions are doing things right: An offseason story

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

It’s July now, and finally, the speculation can turn into reality.  Will linebacker Jarad Davis be a bust?  Will rookie running back Kerryon Johnson be the Detroit Lions first 100-yard rusher in about a jillion years?  AND…the one that’s been on my mind for the longest:  Do people feel that Matt Patricia can make a difference with this team?

No, I’m not doubting the hire at all.  I guess what I’m thinking is this.  Back in April (pre-draft), I was at an event, and as tends to happen when I meet people, the topic of conversation turned to football.

We started talking Lions, and he asked me if I felt that the Lions are really going to be THAT much improved with this hire.  I, of course, said yes, and he looked at me a little funny.

Kam Chancellor Leaving Football: A Valiant Decision

Senior Sports Editor
Seattle Seahawks Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

It was an announcement many expected, but no one was looking forward to. Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor, a founding member of the famed Legion of Boom, has decided to step away from football.

It was November 10, 2017. It will become a day that Seahawks fans won’t ever forget simply because, now, it marks the end of an era. It was a typical hard knock game between division rivals. Seven players left the game between Seattle and Arizona due to injury. Two of those players were cornerback Richard Sherman and Chancellor. Neither will ever see a Seahawk uniform again.

Chancellor sustained a neck injury, a “stinger”,  toward the end of that game. It’s the same injury that ended defensive end Cliff Avril’s career the same year. Head coach Pete Carroll said multiple times that it would be very hard to come back from this type of injury, but fans held out hope.
