Junior Seau death a testament to the pervasive nature of despair

Junior Seau was one of the greatest linebackers in NFL history. The hard-hitting phenom posted an astonishing 1,524 tackles, 325 assists, 56.5 sacks, forced 11 fumbles, and recovered 18.

2011 NFL Draft: Dallas Cowboys Top 10 Positional Needs

You kind of have to wonder whether, as the the Dallas Cowboys assemble their war room for the 2011 NFL draft, they will hang a few “Most Wanted” pictures up on the wall. After the Great Collapse of 2010 (a name I just made up for the disaster that was last season), this team has […]

I was invited by the NFL Players Association to cover the first annual edition of the Legends Brunch on Sunday morning. I don’t mean to name-drop, but Deacon Jones, “Mean” Joe Greene (a native Texan, you know), Jack Youngblood, Ronnie Lott, Floyd Little and John Lynch were there…along with others.

Workers clear snow from the sidewalk near the Super Bowl XLV Media Center in Dallas, Texas, on February 4, 2011. Five inches of snow has fallen on top of ice from earlier in the week leaving roads and sidewalks treacherous. UPI/Roger L. Wollenberg Dallas and its sister cities cannot seem to catch a break.
