Sports & Swag’s 2016 Football Preview: Top 10 NFL Quarterbacks

Despite the fact there are fewer elite QB’s in today’s NFL, it’s very difficult to win big without one. That is, unless you have an elite defense like the Denver Broncos had last season. Of course, it’s not like Peyton Manning wasn’t ever an elite QB, himself. He was one of the best ever. And despite a very subpar season statistically, he was good enough when he had to be. What the Broncos accomplished last season is far from the norm. A team’s chances of reaching a Super Bowl are…

Sports & Swag’s 2016 Football Preview first took a look at the Top 10 NFL Quarterbacks. Now, the preview turns from the players throwing the ball to the ones catching it.

#TBT: ‘The Fail Mary’

In light of this week’s Sunday Night NFL showdown between the Seattle Seahawks, and Green Bay Packers, today’s Sports & Swag Throwback Thursday moment focuses on the ‘The Fail Mary’. Some even call the play the ‘Inaccurate Reception’. Both names fit well. How can we not remember that infamous Monday Night? The 2012 NFL season began without its regular referees, who were locked out due to a labor dispute. While, there was obviously a huge risk that there would be blown calls by the replacement referees, that might eventually cost…

Sports & Swag: Weekly Rewind 8/6/13

Featuring: A-Rod, NFL Training Camp injuries, Johnny Manziel and 2 Guns movie review…. It’s very unfortunate for Major League baseball, that the biogenesis scandal is such a hot story right now.
