This year’s Cover Interview Revealed

In case you haven’t had a chance to check the previous post – and by the way I’m honored so many people were interested and we had almost 100 posts to it — this year’s cover story interview has been revealed: Maurice Jones-Drew.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
