NFL Week 1 In Review

Packers 42, Saints 34
CHRIS PUMMER: The Packers opened the season where they left off, rolling past a very good opponent. Green Bay only narrowly made the playoffs last year and struggled at times, but that was after losing…

NFL Week 16 in Review

CHRIS PUMMER: Disappointing teams have been cleaning house early this season. The 49ers got started by making Mike Singletary the fourth coach dismissed before the end of the regular season.

When the pink slips get handed out is less interesting…

Todd Collins: Retired in 1998?

HOWARD MEGDAL: As reiterated by his 6-for-16, 4-interception performance on Sunday, my initial certainty that Todd Collins retired in 1998 has only been reinforced.

JASON CLINKSCALES: Why did we talk about Collins again? Well, he proved that he’s not retired since there’s nothing in the NFL like a second career as a backup quarterback… except for equally coveted long snappers, fifth-round change-of-pace running backs and slightly unhinged special teams linebackers.

Women and NFL Attire

KRYSTEN OLIPHANT:As someone who grew up owning at least two different T-shirts representing all of my favorite teams, I’m glad to see there’s some variety being put out there.

AKIE BERMISS: I find it kind of strange that its taken the NFL this long to put real effort into making good team apparel for women. Like Krysten, I find logos and words written across the butt to be alarmingly crass (I can’t imagine why anyone who wasn’t a stripper would want to wear a pair of pants that say “Juicy” across the butt!), but I do think there is something to be said for making something a little more… perhaps the word I’m trying to avoid is: feminine.

NAVA BRAHE: The first time I remember seeing a pink NFL t-shirt was my first semester of graduate school. It was 2002, and I was beginning the second leg of my “adult” education at Hofstra University. At the first meeting of one of my classes, I noticed a cute, petite blonde girl sporting a fitted pink New York Jets t-shirt; and a diamond engagement ring the size of a marble. She seemed nice enough, and I didn’t give it a second thought. It wasn’t until later that same day when I ran into the Chair of the English department, and was asked, “Is Wayne Chrebet’s wife in class with you?” My answer was, “Yeah, I guess she was the one in the pink Jets t-shirt.”

SHANNON MCCARTHY: It used to be you didn’t have very many options for team apparel if you were female; you could go for a larger men’s jersey or you could opt for the largest youth size, but either way, you were getting a dress, and not an attractive one either. When retailers finally came out with jerseys and shirts that were more fitted for the female form, it seemed these only came in pink (or if not pink, baby blue). Why is that? Continue reading

NFL Week 2 in Review

Falcons 41, Cardinals 7
CHRIS PUMMER:
Guess Matt Leinart wasn’t going to play any better than Derek Anderson.

ALEX PREWITT: Good that the Falcons got this out of their system after getting abused by the Steelers’ defense in Week 1.…
