1. The Heisman is all his.
2. I just read the police report. You should too.
3. Heads will roll, because this should have been sent to the DA’s office last year.
4. Jameis isn’t innocent, there just wasn’t enough evidence to charge him.
5. The girl isn’t a liar, there just wasn’t enough evidence to prove she was telling the truth.
6. To the reporter that asked this question to Winston’s attorney during the press conference today, “Your client had a girlfriend at the time of this. What does that say about the character of your client.”
I’d like to ask that reporter if he knew that the accuser had a boyfriend at the time of this incident too. The same boyfriend that didn’t want to cooperate with police. The same boyfriend who had a girlfriend that was out drinking with some football players. I mean, mr. reporter, you are a reporter right. You knew these facts, correct? You are paid to collect facts and report. Did you ask the accuser’s attorney the same question about her character?Read more

The documentary, The Book of Manning, aired last week on ESPN. The Manning matriarch, Olivia, said her favorite moments involved watching her sons play high school football. Peyton Manning also expressed his sentiment, saying that he loved playing on the same high school football team with his brother, Cooper. Of course, we all know Peyton is in the NFL, as is his little brother, Eli. This isn’t another Manning story, however, it’s about where the Manning’s played high school football. It’s about a football hotbed that’s often overlooked — Louisiana.

The good folks at TheShadowLeague.com give me my own NFL column for reasons unknown to me. God bless them though. Check it out…
1. Baltimore Ravens – Joe Flacco misses Anquan Boldin like Dame Dash misses Jay Z.
He threw five picks, which led to 13 points by the Bills. The Ravens only lost by three points.
2. Bust Gabbert – Speaking of QBs…let’s just call a spade a spade. Blaine Gabbert is a bust. The Jaguars have weapons, MJD, Mercedes Lewis, etc. They just don’t have anyone that knows how to use those weapons properly. Gabbert has left us with this amazing NFL moment in his career.

The good folks at TheShadowLeague.com asked me a few questions about Week 4 in the NFL. Here’s what I had to say below.
1. Has Detroit turned the corner?
RICHARD BOADU: The Lions have been around the corner for a while, they just have been stalled out since they got past it in 2011. The talent has always been there. Chicago was due for a big loss too, so it was easy to see this one coming, especially against a division opponent.
BRANDON SCOTT: The Lions finally have a respectable running game with the addition of Reggie Bush. Not only does he add a new element to the offense in terms of weaponry, but the threat he presents makes the Lions passing game all the more dangerous. And if this group can keep other teams honest like that, they could be scary.
KHALID SALAAM: I’m still not 100% sold on the Lions. Detroit is one of those “Madden teams” that look great on a video game roster, but video games don’t take into account common sense. Frankly speaking, that’s been the Lions biggest issue over the last couple of seasons. They have plenty of talent, but don’t always play smart. On the bright side, it’s cool to see Reggie Bush taking it back to his USC days.
