The average age of an NFL player is now just 25 years old. With that in mind, and with young coaching hires becoming in vogue, I ask, where is the leadership coming from in today's game?
For years I dreamt of taking the Rams to the Super Bowl and I'm so happy for the guys who brought them this far. Can they finish this dream season with a perfect ending?
I want to give the Rams front office some credit for the direction they took the franchise two years ago, when they took the leap and brought in an unknown commodity to run the team. Hiring Sean McVay was a huge project and nobody knew how it was going to turn out.
As a student of the game of football, especially at the running back position, I’m always watching the Super Bowl with a keen eye, excited to see how my fellow RBs are going to fare on the biggest stages.

Wild Card weekend always has the potential for some surprises, and I'm really excited about the AFC side of things with three newcomers in play. That probably bodes well for viewership, which has been down across [...]
I’ve been retired a year-and-a half now and I can tell you that the first year wasn’t easy. Fortunately, I had prepared for my career to end, mentally and financially. But my body was so used to the routine that in June and July, training camp months, I would just wake early and look at [...]
