This year’s Cover Story Interview revealed

It’s time to reveal this year’s Cover Story interview: it’s Marshawn Lynch.

Look, I don’t want to be accused of creating too much “hype” on Lynch. I know he’s not the most dynamic back in the league. But neither was Emmitt Smith when he played.

    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season.
