By Jaboner Jackson 830 pm | As training camp gets underway for all thirty-two teams, free agent players continue to find teams at a late date in the AFC West. (If you missed our 2011 AFC West Predictions, Lockout Edition, catch them here.)
By Jaboner Jackson 12 pm | For ninety minutes on Saturday night, it was 1993 all over again for the FOOTBALLPHDS, as Rage Against The Machine (RATM) lit up and tore down the Los Angeles Coliseum at LA Rising Festival in front of 100,000 fans. A wide section of Angelenos—eastside hipsters, fraternity boys, eses, surfer dudes, and former rebels turned family men—attended LA Rising yesterday, many of them coming early in the day to catch The Muse and Ms. Lauryn Hill. But for the FOOTBALLPHDS, we showed up at 9:30 p.m., to watch and mosh the only show that mattered: Rage Against The Machine.
By Cousin Felipe 10:45AM Jaboner, Rock and DoubleTap are always talking about their ex wives, cheerleaders, Kush girls and everything but they never put nothing up for the ladies. They always say the footballphds are supposed to be about equality and everything, so I found some pictures for our lady readers. I am not sure if these QBs are hunky but my mom tells me they are.
By Jaboner Jackson 10 am | Even though it was the easiest prediction to make after the Oakland Raiders extended a big money contract to cornerback Stanford Routt before the NFL Lockout began, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha did not officially become an ex-Raider until yesterday, when he signed a 5-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles worth $60 million with $25 million guaranteed. The most surprising news regarding the official changing of the cornerback lineup in Oakland is not that Asomugha left but that the Raiders essentially paid the same to retain Routt as the the Eagles did to snare Asomugha.
By Jaboner Jackson 12 pm | This week, the NFL officially shed its winter weight and the NFL Lockout ended. We prognosticated Free Agency, delved back into Pac 12 NCAA football, found Sasquatch, and put the booty on clap for another Mas Malo Booty Battle. With the start of training camps underway in the NFL, our weekends are no longer free. (We apologize to our wives in advance but it's almost Football Widow Season.) It’s Friday, which means it’s time to Roll Call our Colleagues, Wonderful Readers, and Peeps.
By Jaboner Jackson 8 am | Last month the FOOTBALLPHDS stack ranked the teams possibly headed to Farmers Field in downtown Los Angeles. A lot has happened since then. A new Collective Bargaining Agreement was reached between the NFL and NFLPA which included a 1.5% stadium building credit, a Memorandum of Understanding was created (but not signed yet) by the City of Los Angeles and AEG, and legislatures in California and Minnesota had budget hiccups. It’s time to Stack Re-Rank The Teams Headed to Farmers Field. And if you want to play along at home, feel free to check out our old rankings here and our Definitive NFL Stadium Guide here.
