[ad_1] The most famous quarterbacks in Green Bay history are without a doubt Bart Starr, Brett Farve, and yes Aaron Rodgers. Even though Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have history and longevity on his side, he is still putting up some mind-boggling numbers. You really can’t compare the three quarterbacks. The careers of each quarterback came during different eras in football. Each had their own strengths, and played under different rules. The NFL has made a lot of changes over the years and to compare Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre to Bart Starr is unfair. Most Green Bay Packer fans are very knowledgeable about the historic career of Brett Favre, and the blossoming career of Aaron Rodgers. However, most are too young or don’t remember the amazing career of Bart Starr. Personal stats never mattered to Bart Starr. Even though he never had a 3,000 yard season or any 400 yard games to his credit, when it came to winning, he was peerless. Starr was a five time NFL champion and the MVP of the first two Super Bowls. He was known as being “Mr. Clutch” during critical games. The quarterback of the 1960’s, Bart Starr was the leader of one of […]

[ad_1] There are literally hundreds and hundreds of exercises out there. But which ones are will improve your performance on the mat. Here is a list of 10 fantastic body-weight exercises that will build strength, power and explosiveness for all Judokas. Body-weight squats Body-weight squats will develop strength and stability in the lower body. Strength in the legs is something the Japanese pride themselves on. That is one reason why they develop so much power when they execute a technique. Make sure when you are squatting that you get low enough so that your thighs are parallel to the floor. Drive through your heels, don’t fall backwards and maintain your balance. Burpees One of the hardest and best body-weight exercises on the planet. Burpees develop leg power and upper body strength and when done as part of a circuit or in a Tabata interval will dramatically increase your fitness levels.

Pushups Whether it is traditional, close grip, wide grip, box, or scooping pushups the fact […]

[ad_1] As the Commissioner of your fantasy football league, its your job to make sure people are playing the game fair and competitively, while having fun doing so. There are a couple scenarios that really get to me when doing fantasy and can leave me feeling sour at the end of the season. Firstly, I cannot stand when people forget, or just flat out refuse, to login each week and set their starters. Easy wins are easy and to me there is no gratification in that. Another thing that bothers me as a commissioner, mostly because of heart, is seeing people who really focus, do their research, make excellent moves on the waiver wire and just come up short at the end-of-season payout. Over the years, I’ve tried to make my leagues as fun as possible for a couple reasons; to attract new and interest players, and to sustain the focus from week to week. I’ve compiled a small list of things that I do to help keep people interested, which ultimately will keep them logging in from week to week. 1. King of The Hill(KoTH) – Side games are a great way to keep focus for your league players. […]

[ad_1] My name is Cecil “Martin” Chase and I played as a Defensive Tackle in the NFL for eight years. In this article I am going to provide you with techniques you can use to master your skills as a defensive lineman. There are four core qualities that a defense linemen needs to posses. These qualities are strength, speed, intelligence, and a fiercely competitive nature. If you do not have these qualities, you need to practice them over and over until you master them. By mastering them, you will be attractive to college football scouts as well as NFL scouts. Here are the reasons why you need to master the qualities of strength, speed, intelligence and a highly competitive nature: 1. You need strength to move past the opponents that are in front of you and who are trying to keep you from tackle the quarterback or running back. 2. You need speed to pursue and rush the quarterback and running back. 3. You need intelligence to react to different events that are happening all around you and you need to respond to them in a split second. If you hesitate, you’ll get burned. 4. Most important of all, you […]

[ad_1] The 4-3 Defense is undoubtedly the most popular defense in football in recent years. Most NFL and College football teams use the 4-3 Defense. A good number of High Schools use it as well. The proliferation of the 4-3 Defense is for 3 reasons. It can be adapted to defend all modern offenses. Using a 7 man front makes your choice of coverages very flexible. The 4-3 Defense is known as a run stopping defense too. Adapting to the Other Guys The 4-3 Defense was originally built to stop the downhill running game of the Wishbone offense. Because of this, it is a favorite scheme to stop the Option and other 2 and 3 back offenses. Aligning your players in the 4-3 Defense puts you in the best position to stop the I, Wing-T, Split Back Veer, and of course the Wishbone. Watching so many teams using Spread offenses today, this would seem to be a disadvantage. But the 4-3 Defense is simple to adjust. We know that you have a 7 man front (4 defensive linemen and 3 linebackers), so you have an additional player in your secondary compared to most defenses that are 8 man fronts. Along […]

[ad_1] If you are trying to find a player that really jumped onto the scene in 2006 you do not have to look any further than the Philadelphia Phillies Ryan Howard. Howard has been nothing short of spectacular from his first base position, and it appears that he has plenty of good years ahead of him. Howard has already become one of the best players in the league, and he is only 25 years old. Not only does Howard have a great glove at first base, but he can also take care of business when it comes to hitting the ball as well. At this point in time Howard is batting .294; not bad for a guy of his age. But this does not even show his power numbers. Howard has 47 home runs, as well as 122 runs batted in; talk about power! If he keeps up this pace he will easily finish the season with over 50 blasts, and 150 runs batted in. It is safe to say that any team in the league would be interested in having Howard play first base for them, and quite possibly bat clean up. If the Phillies want to continue to […]

[ad_1] Maybe you’ve been playing fantasy sports for a while and you’ve been asked to play in your first Confidence Pool. Or perhaps you’re new to fantasy sport games entirely. In either case, a Confidence Pool is actually a pretty interesting way to bet on games. We say “bet” because you’re picking a team to win each of each week’s games, though you are not actually placing a wager. The game is pretty simple. In a standard Confidence Pool, you’re asked to pick the winners of each NFL contest for the week (yep, all 16 games; less during bye weeks). Then you weight each pick with a number of confidence points between 1 and 16 (where higher is better). You can’t re-use a number, and you must use all numbers. When the team you picked to win actually wins, you get the points you assigned to that game. Scoring and Payouts So how do scoring and payouts work? Many pools will collect an entry fee. That fee is collected from all participants and dispersed in the form of weekly and/or season prizes. The weekly winner is the person whose coin flips yielded the most points from correct picks (as close […]

[ad_1] The Italian Soccer league is a series of matches played between various football clubs in Italy. They are all interconnected league matches among the various football clubs in Italy. The club that is at the top is Lega Calcio or the Lega Nazionale Professionisti. This club is divided into sections Serie A and Serie B The Second club in the ranking is Lega Pro; it rules first division and second division. The former has two parallel divisions and the latter has three parallel divisions. The next in the ranking is called Serie D, this is a league which is formed by nine parallel divisions and the clubs are divided according to their geographical location. The first Italian League came into being because of English emigrants in the year 1891. When the leagues began they were separate for Italians and for foreigners. Gradually they merged.

The league system began in the year 1978, when the semi-professionals ceased to exist. In the same year the Lega Pro […]

[ad_1] Most people are convinced that betting cannot earn profits to gambler in long-term perspective. It’s obvious even for those who are a great experts of statistics and probability theory. The only simple rationale here is: If bookmaker organizations exist, it means that they earn money from this business, and if they manage to earn then gamblers are supposed to spend. However this could be an absolute true if there would be only 1 bookmaker around the world. But its not like that and nowadays we have a hundreds of internationally recognized bookmakers. To see how it could be possible to earn risk-free money from betting, let’s look first at how betting works in general. Let’s say we have a following tennis match tonight: Nadal vs. Federer Bookmaker company A gives the following odds for this match: Nadal to win 2.50 – Federer to win 1.50 It means that if we stake on Nadal $3 and Nadal wins the game, we receive 3 x 2.5 = $7.5. Same happens if our stake on Federer and he wins: 3 x 1.5 = $4.5. Until now it’s pretty clear how betting system works. Now let’s assume, that there is another bookmaker Company […]
