The NFL is in full swing and aren’t we all the better for it. We have already witnessed a repeat of last year’s Super Bowl, this time the Denver Broncos were beaten 26-20 by the Seattle Seahawks in overtime, instead of being humiliated again like they were in the 2014 Super Bowl final. Many see this game as a prequel to the 2015 Super Bowl.

However, analysts and pundits are giving too much weight to these two teams. We all know the NFL is far from conclusive, shocks are one-a-penny, and this year should be no different. At the beginning of last season the Seattle Seahawks were 17/2 to win the Super Bowl, proving that you do not have to be a favorite to get your hands on the Vince Lombardi trophy.

If you’ve been following TSB, you’re sure to have seen a few of my reviews for different types of kinesiology therapy tape.  Last week I had a chance to talk to Team USA member Dotsie Bausch, one of the most accomplished athletes in women’s cycling about her cycling career and SpiderTech pre-cut elastic sports tape.  Dotsie uses the tape to alleviate some of the aches and pains a cyclist experiences while training.  Check out my Q&A with Dotsie and some info about SpiderTech sports tape after the jump.

As MLB teams begin to clinch division crowns and playoff births, the tradition of celebrations continue. Beer and champagne gets thrown around and slugged down minutes after the teams realize “we are going to the playoffs!” Even though teams have made a significant accomplishment, the fact still remains that many of them have or had meaningful games left to play.

Remember back to the months leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft when there was a serious debate between NFL Draft experts on whether Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III should be the No. 1 overall pick?

The mere thought of that debate seems comical now, and the Colts absolutely made the right decision. It’s partly because Luck has turned out to be exactly what he was billed to be. It’s partly because RGIII can’t stay healthy. It’s partly because there’s a very good chance RGIII isn’t even the best quarterback drafted in 2012 on the Redskins roster. But the biggest reason the “RGIII or Luck” argument seems crazy today is the emergence of Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks drafted Wilson with the No. 75 pick in the third round of the 2012 Draft with the intention of sitting him behind Matt Flynn for a year or two before handing him the keys to the franchise. That plan never came to fruition, as Wilson beat out Flynn for the starting job as a rookie and quickly established himself as one of the premiere quarterbacks in the league.

Wilson and Luck haven’t been compared in the same way Luck was compared to RGIII prior to the draft, but a comment from Broncos’ cornerback Chris Harris following Seattle’s overtime victory over Denver this weekend started the debate.

Pee wee

A pee wee football team and a sturdy banner do not mix. The Wallkill Mighty Mights wanted to make a statement by bursting through a banner before their game. As the pee wee team charged toward the banner, there was an issue. The banner did not break.

The first two weeks of NFL action are in the books, and everything that’s happened on the field seems almost irrelevant at this point. The Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson controversies have overshadowed the league’s on-field product, but hopefully at this point next week, we’ll only be talking about real, actual football.

Let’s get that trend started now by focusing on some of the biggest head-to-head match ups in Week 3. These are the individual match ups that may end up determining the winner and loser in a number of games this weekend.

While watching some NFL action, these are the players you’ll be focusing on and for good reason. Here are the five must watch head-t0-head match ups in NFL Week 3. Read the rest of this entry »
