[ad_1] You go hard in your football training program…you do the conditioning…you get yourself mentally ready to play…then you still find yourself on the bench! High School Football can be a brutal experience when your coach doesn’t know you exist… We all want more playing time. If you’re a true competitor, you never want to leave the field…you want to be there to step up and make a big play when the game is on the line. But, that’s tough to do if you’re on the bench! We all go out and lift weights, condition, do speed training, football skill work… but, in some situations, especially in big High School programs, getting a shot at the starting line up can seem almost impossible. You may very well have 4 or 5 guys on a similar skill level (or better) at your position. If you want to beat those guys out, you’ve got to stand out. You may need to do a lot more than you’re currently doing…you may need to work harder than you ever thought possible… Here are the 7-Steps you need to take to get your Football Coach to notice you and help get you more playing time! […]

[ad_1] One word to sum of Joe Namath? Confidence. In football, it is what separates the run of the mill quarterback from the championship quarterback. When the experts talk about confidence, the discussion inevitably turns to Joe Namath. Three days prior to Super Bowl III in 1969, Joe Namath brashly guaranteed that his upstart New York Jets would defeat the might Baltimore Colts. With Joe’s confident declaration, Namath had broken the unwritten rule of professional sports: Never guarantee a victory. When the 17 point underdogs went out the next day and actually did humiliate the Colts, it was a defining moment for football and for the brash young star who made it happen. Super Bowl III in 1969 is considered a landmark event in football history. When Namath and the AFL’s Jets beat the Baltimore Colts of the NFL, it showed that the AFL had finally reached parity, ending years of dominance of the NFL. Joe Namath’s Biography Born May 31, 1943 Growing Up: Learns to throw from his three older brothers. Namath practiced throwing over telephone wires near his home. His goal as a kid was to be in the Air Force and fly airplanes. Age 17: Joe Leads […]

[ad_1] Duval Love is a former Offensive Lineman who graduated from UCLA and played 11 years in the NFL for the Los Angeles Rams, Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals and made the Pro Bowl. I was honored when he agreed to meet with me to answer some questions for the website. Who did you idolize in the NFL while growing up? Well, I was a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and a Minnesota Vikings fan. It’s kind of funny that I wasn’t really a Rams fan. I liked the Cowboys because the offensive line would do that little pause and go up, so I was immediately attracted to that. I was a huge fan of Harvey Martin, Too Tall Jones, Randy White, and Pat Donovan and those types of guys. I always liked linemen. One of my favorite players was on the Miami Dolphins, Dwight Stevenson. He always kind of catered to the linemen. Growing up, I always watched the linemen and as I was getting older I wanted to see if I was reaching 6’2 or 6’3. One day, if I got that tall, I’d be able to play in the pros. From High School to College to Professional, who […]

[ad_1] Right now, thousands of people from around the world, from professional authors to my sister-in-law, are using small, simple articles to make money on the Internet. How much money can you make writing articles? Well, that is going to vary from person to person, and a lot of other factors are involved as well. It's not simply how good a writer you are, but the subjects you choose to write about, how you address the subject, where you place your articles, how many sites you get your articles on, how valuable the information is, and the site ( s) you link to with your articles. A few small, 600 to 1000 words, articles properly placed can create regular customers and sales while enhancing an internet business website ranking within the search engines … which also increases traffic to the website. Increased traffic can translate to increased customers, therefore more sales, and, in some cases, repeat sales, which translates to residual (passive) Some people make thousands of dollars while others just make a few bucks.

[ad_1] The New Orleans Saints were the feel good story of the 2007 season. After having been the losers of the NFL for many years, the team suddenly found itself in the heat of a Super Bowl race in 2007, thanks in large part to Drew Brees, Reggie Bush, and Deuce McAllister. Hopes were high for this New Orleans team in 2008. Drew Brees was with the team for yet another season, Marques Colston was in his second year, more polished and stronger, and the acquisition of tight end Jeremy Shockey made this team even more dangerous. Somehow, the Saints lost any and all momentum they had established during the previous season. The team stumbled to an 8-8 finish, and missed the playoffs by a long shot. While their offense was effective, their defensive game was in shambles and something was missing from the team that had so powerfully established itself during the 2007 season. To begin the 2009 season, the Saints were given a very easy opponent in the Detroit Lions. As expected, they went on to win this game rather easily. Their week 2 matchup was somewhat tougher. Facing the Philadelphia Eagles, a team that had destroyed the […]

[ad_1] When do historical figures become immortal? Arguably, that happens when they creep into our day-to-day lives. For instance, consider the Titans. In Greek mythology, the Titans included the twelve children of the gods Ge (Earth), and Uranus (Heaven). The Titans were huge and powerful. Thus, the Titanic ship was named as such. Today we say that “Jane is a business Titan,” or that “Shakespeare was a titan of Renaissance literature.” Here are some interesting facts about some other titans, the Tennessee Titans: 1. The origins of the “Titans” are Greece and Memphis The Tennessee Titans were formerly the Houston Oilers, where they played from 1960-1996. After relocating to Nashville, Tennessee in 1997, the team played two NFL seasons as the Tennessee Oilers. The team’s owner, Bud Adams, then decided to change the team’s nickname. It is common knowledge that the Titans were powerful gods from Greek mythology. However, did you know that people often refer to Nashville as the “Athens of the South”? 2. The Titans have earned playoff spots in nearly half of their seasons Since moving to Tennessee, the Titans played 11 seasons from 1997-2007. Within that timeframe, the Titans have qualified for the playoffs during five […]

[ad_1] The NFL’s regular season contains 256 games and last Monday night’s game between the Giants and Cowboys marked the 100th game of the 2006 season. The 2005 season became known as the “year of the favorite” as favorites cashed at a near-58 percent clip, while home underdogs had their worst year in memory. Home ‘dogs’ finished the ’05 season at 29-48-4 ATS, just 43.3 percent. Favorites are not having that kind of success this year, as through 100 games, favorites are 48-51-1 ((48.5 percent) and home dogs are getting their ‘bite’ back. The last two weeks home dogs have gone 8-5 SU and an excellent 10-3 ATS, giving them a year-to-date mark of 24-14 ATS, or a winning percentage of 63.2 percent! Next week is the mid-point of the season (Week 9 of a 17-week schedule) and I’ll give a more detailed mid-season update. Week 7 was the highest scoring week of the season so far, as games averaged 46.7 PPG (Week 4 had been the highest-scoring week at 46.4 PPG) and eight of the 13 games went ‘over’ the total. Adding in the Week 6 games, the last two weeks have seen over bettors go 16-9-1. Weeks 1 […]
