When did football become a 365-day-a-year thing? Seems like they’re really pushing to keep it in the limelight just as the NHL and NBA are heading into their post-season and baseball is about to begin. Attention hogs.
Now that Geoff Schwartz is no longer playing, look for a lot more analysis and commentary, like this one in which he opines that his brother Mitchell’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs, should acquire Tony Romo, the quixotic QB for the Dallas Cowboys. Mitchell’s thoughts are closer to home.
He wasn’t picked for the Pro Bowl, but New England Patriots special teams star Nate Ebner picked up honors as “International Rugby Player of the Year” by the Samurai International RFC.
How long before Gabe Marks, formerly a star at Washington State University, joins the pro ranks? Seems like he’s got the interview thing down, although he might have to tone things down a bit as a rookie.
Marks may have some company in the NFL in Adam Bisnowaty, an offensive lineman previously with Pitt.
