[ad_1] Let's face it. The guy that usually wins your fantasy football league is usually the one that can list the winner of the last 5 NFL Rushing titles of the top of his or her head (In case you're wondering, that would be LaDanian Tomlinson (2007 & 2006 ), Shaun Alexander (2005), Curtis Martin (2004) and Jamal Lewis (2003) .But the point is this: Usually the guy who knows the most does the best. ups and the latest injury reports or learn to play smarter. After all, you have work, family and other concerns that take enough of your time. So learn to do better at fantasy football and spend less time doing it. you can trust. There are literally hundreds of websites out there that have information you can look at in regards to fantasy football. There are giants sites and smaller sites. The giant sites are geared for the average player and are fairly generic. Smaller sites tend to be more specialized for the type or style of play you want. The important thing is to find two sites you like and trust. Then compare the two. If you start looking at 5 or 10 sites, you […]

[ad_1] One thing that confuses and angers me about 90%of the football strength training programs out there is that everyone does the same thing. The Wide Outs go through the same training as the QB’s. The Corners do the same exercises, sets and reps as the Lineman. And Kickers, who knows what the hell they do… It’s as if we’re weren’t different enough as individuals, now we’re going to take guys who perform extremely different functions on the field and have them all train the same way? Insanity, plain and simple. How can guys who perform duties that are in completely different worlds all do the same strength workouts? Sure, there are many similarities. There’s a base of movements and exercises that everyone should do…however, how, when, and how much of them is quite different, especially when it comes to the big guys up front! Some key points to remember about the Lineman are: They are much bigger than the rest of the team, recovery ability will either be much less or much more than the other guys (more on this later) Their job is to move another huge, strong and explosive guy using strength from their hips, legs, arms, […]

[ad_1] Rather than just randomly picking football matches to place your bet on, there is a recent trend in fixed odds betting to employ a ‘betting strategy’ or ‘betting system’. Almost all systems rely on some sort of points rating scheme where a team is awarded a certain number of points depending upon aspects such as home advantage, league position, recent form etc. You must know the rules and regulations of the sport you want to bet on in detail before you develop a strategy. This means that you have to be a football fan already. It is a lot easier for those who have prior knowledge of the sport whether as a player, spectator, or a tactician. For those without prior knowledge, watching and analyzing football matches can help you learn the rules of the game quite easily. There is no betting system that can achieve 100% success; however, some are far much better than others at predicting the outcome of games. One football season might see one betting strategy work and another fail, whereas the following season the roles can be reversed. For example, many punters study the rankings table in order to predict outcomes of games. One […]

[ad_1] John Elway was the type of player that people will still be talking out for future generations. He had what it takes to mount frantic last minute comebacks, and could move quickly out of the pocket buying extra time and to avoid the sack. Not only was he a great running quarterback, Elway had one of the strongest arms of any quarterback in history. To give you an example of what kind of player John Elway was, let me take you back to the 1986 AFC Championship game. The Broncos were losing 20-13 and were pinned back at their own two yard line. What did he have to say to his teammates in the huddle? Elway said, “We have them right where we want them”. A trip to the Super Bowl was on the line, and he had to work against the weather, the cold, the wind, the crowd, the clock, and the Cleveland Browns. With everything against him John Elway drove down the entire length of the field in 15 plays, ending with a Mark Jackson touchdown reception to tie the game. Just one possession into overtime he led the Broncos into scoring position to set up the […]

[ad_1] Winning the championship is the primary goal of any football team, or any sports team at all really. There is only one reason to go out and play and that is to win the championship. A championship season is not only rewarding to the players that duke it out on the field, but also to the fans that root them on. Cities and regions should be very proud of their championship winning teams. Baltimore is a great football town and professional football has been present there in one form or another for more than 60 years. Many people don’t know this, but four different professional football teams have won championships while representing the city of Baltimore. The Baltimore Ravens – 2000 The last Baltimore team to win a league title in pro football was the team that currently represents the city in the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens began as a franchise in 1996, having been active as the Cleveland Browns the previous year. They had a few tough years, but in 2000 everything came together behind a strong running game and an out of this world defense. They ended up defeating the New York Giants 34-7 in […]

[ad_1] The University of Arkansas Razorbacks running back duo of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones made a very big impact on the Southeastern Conference (SEC) with their Wild Hog formation (predecessor to the Wild Cat offense in the NFL) before making a splash in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Darren McFadden and Felix Jones were teammates who both very successfully played the same position (running back) at the University of Arkansas. Both players were All-Americans and this abundance of talent at the same position put the Arkansas head football coach in the position of having the very desirable “problem” of how to utilize having too many good players for one position. The solution to the dilemma of how to maximize the abilities of both Felix Jones and Darren McFadden by getting them on the field at the same time was to implement what the University of Arkansas program called the Wild Hog formation. The Wild Hog formation was not invented in the twenty-first century by the Razorback coaching staff but rather has its roots in the distant history of college football before spread offenses and passing the ball fifty times a game were common occurrences. Before Bill […]

[ad_1] So there’s tons of cheerleaders out there dancing on the field and we never bother to get to know them. All we do is just stare at them dancing, think ‘oh they dance good, look good, typical cheerleaders’ and move on without a thought as to what really goes behind the scenes of an NFL cheerleader. Well, I am here to tell you that there is a lot more than meets the eye. All those movies you saw like “Bring it On” and those television shows that showed a bunch of drama queens as cheerleaders have got it all wrong. Myth #1 – It’s easy being an NFL cheerleader. Um. No. There is no way that it is easy being a cheerleader. So much goes into the auditions, that you’re lucky to even make it into the squad in the first place. Hundreds of girls try out and you have to be in the top 3% to make it in the squad, no kidding. They all dance good, look good, are energetic, enthusiastic, and have a great personality on top of all that. After they get into the squad, it takes hours of practice almost every day in order […]

[ad_1] Joe Namath came out of the University of Alabama to become the darling of the AFL as the quarterback of the New York Jets. During his career, despite a number of injuries, he would develop into one of the better quarterbacks in the league and eventually get elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It can be argued that there was no more important football player in the American Football League than Joe Namath. He was brash and garnered a lot of press. He also provided a lot of legitimacy to the young league based on his talent. Predicting a Super Bowl II victory for his Jets over the Colts of the more established National Football League was just icing on the cake. Namath has not only gone down as one of the best is either league, he is also fondly remembered and always associated with the franchise he starred for, the New York Jets. During his career, Namath threw passes to a number of receivers. Some of those players were household names and some were just your average ordinary every day pro football player. Which one was his favorite though? Who caught the most touchdown passes from […]

[ad_1] The 16th edition of South Africa’s main international cycling stage race, the Cape Argus Pick ‘n Pay Giro del Capo, begins on March 6th and comes with some changes to its format. This year’s competition promises to be the best ever in its history. One of the changes is the number of teams to participate, instead of the usual 22; there will be 29 groups, by far the highest; also the number of cyclist per team will increase from five to six. The split between the international and the local teams is almost equal. Barloworld team just signed in the professional cyclist Robert Hunter, the fourth South African member of the team. Hunter is known as well as the rest of his new partners, as a great cyclist and it’s even considered a world’s top sprinters. Hunter is beneath the eye of the press and the Giro’s fans, but especially of the Barloworld’s followers. Everybody is expecting something impressive from him. And what else could be expected after his remarkable 23 victories, proof to his outstanding accomplishments. His most notable achievements include having competed in the world’s most important races with five appearances in the Tour de France; once […]

[ad_1] One of the biggest advantages of the 4-3 defense is its ability to adapt to any offensive attack. Whether you face a Pro-I, Spread, or Flex Bone you can adjust your base front without breaking your basic rules. Aligning your 4-3 Defense to stop Double Tight End formations, it takes some really simple tweaking to the Over front, or checking to an Under front to get strong against 2-TE sets quickly. If all else fails, we can also hop into a goal line set. We’re going to talk at couple of different ways we can hold two tight Ends for more defense of front here. Anytime that we see two tight Ends specially the two back set we’re expecting the run here. This is definitely a running situation force that we’re going to played as. This is duck formation two tight Ends we got the “I” back here. We got the single receiver split out to the right force. First of all, inside we’re going to still keep our 7 man front. We’re going to be able to play with here, two safety uptight they get a love that quarter coverage in the 4-3 because their ability did 9 […]
