Football isn’t over!

We have the rare opportunity of watching a new league unfurl before our very eyes in 2019. It’s not the NFL, but it is 10 weeks of the game we love. Four games are played each weekend, two on Saturday, two on Sunday. CBS Sports Network will be broadcasting the games.

Players have been brought together from many sources to form this league. New rules have been utilized to add quickness to the game. Coaches have been busy testing personalities and strengths for the winning combination. It’s new and it’s happening.

Our Turf Football has a short 5-question, multiple-choice survey to help you get to know more about the league. Click the link below to get started.

2019 Reese’s Senior Bowl

Lisa
Lisa Johnson,
Miami Dolphins Reporter

By Lisa Johnson //@LJ1303

The Reese’s Senior Bowl has become the premier event to watch college football players, and I was lucky enough to attend this year. As I sit here and reflect on this past weekend, a few names stand out to me.

Those that know me, or who listen to our podcast regularly, know which group I went to first: the quarterbacks, of course. I didn’t get a chance to attend practices due to prior events so I had to play catch-up.

I found my source and started firing away.

I first asked which quarterbacks did teams seem to talk about the most. Surprisingly, it wasn’t the two most talked about among social media: West Virginia’s Will Grier or Missouri’s Drew Lock. I have to say, however, Drew Lock does have that typical pro-style passer physique.  At 6’4″,  225 lbs, he stands tall in the pocket.

The best of the best NFL celebrations so far this season

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

The best decision the NFL has made was going back and allowing touchdown celebrations.  It even has a Twitter page dedicated to celebrations called @GetYaPopcorn.

Glad they got the message that celebrations are fun.  Wish they could get the message about other things, but that’s another post for another day.

Bottom line, the best thing for a good celebration, is winning.  One of the more clever ones is from the Chicago Bears, Club Dub.  They turn their locker room into a mock club environment and celebrate the win.  To show what a big person I am, I’m posting Club Dub-Thanksgiving Edition, when they beat the Lions.

Remembering 9/11: The Year the NFL Stood Still

Official Reporter, Chicago Bears

 

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

*Editorial*

Seventeen years ago today, the unthinkable happened on American soil. The United States became the victim of a horrific crime on humanity when it was attacked on September 11, 2001.

Almost every American can remember that day as if it were yesterday. I remember it well. I received a phone call from a friend early that morning asking me to turn on the news. I was shocked to see that a jet airliner had hit one of the Twin Towers in New York City. We discussed several possibilities as to what lead to the crash. Did the pilot have a heart attack? Or did the plane malfunction?

It wasn’t until I was looking at the screen did I see the second plane come around the bend straight for the second building. My reaction was simple, “Whoa, this is bad. Amiee, America has been attacked!”

Bears Must Go Defense No Matter What

Official Chicago Bears Fan Reporter

by Wanda/Wiedman // @WandaW63

In the 2014 movie Draft Day, general manager Sonny Weaver Jr. is under pressure as to whom to pick at the number one spot. Throughout the movie, Weaver carries a Post-it note with something written on it. As the drama of his life unfolds, the camera reveals these words, “Vontae Mack no matter what,” linebacker with a chip on his shoulder. Thirty-two teams with thirty-two GMs and head coaches put their jobs on the line for that number one draft pick. The question is who will it be?

For the Chicago Bears, they must go defense no matter what. With the eighth pick in the first-round, they have the option of moving up or trading down, especially if they go defense. The Bears hosted the sought after and elite edge rusher out of North Carolina, Bradley Chubb, just a few weeks ago. They were not disappointed. But what are they willing to trade to get him? Well, with limited picks I don’t see that happening. However, it is the NFL and anything can happen, but Chubb falling to the Bears at eight is a stretch.

Fantasy Football 2017 Season Recap

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

I won! I won a championship!

My theory going into the 2017 NFL fantasy football season was to play the numbers. I drafted the highest I could when my turn came, focusing on wide receivers and running backs in the early rounds. Five of our six leagues did not have a kicker on the roster.

Each week, my starters were selected by using the players who had the highest projected stats going into the week’s games. When a player was injured and out for the season, I then replaced said player with the top player available in that position on the league’s list.
