Red Zone

In football, the term Red Zone has become something of a two-edged sword. Of course, the term speaks of that part of the field inside the opponent’s 20-yard line, when the offense is moving in for a potential score. But, while the Red Zone is a place of opportunity for the attacking offense, the Red Zone is the Danger Zone…

Choices and Consequences

I am just enough of a football nerd that I love watching the NFL Draft. Last week was no exception. Teams made their picks, and I anticipated what the Browns might do to try and take another step forward next year. But, through it all, there was a sad, continuous theme. Repeatedly, players with the talent to be taken in…

The Joy Of Being Chosen

Tomorrow night at 8:00, the eyes of the sports community will focus on Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre where team officials from around the National Football League will gather for this year’s draft.

Fear and Trust

Opinions were strongly divided last week when a young NFL player suddenly announced his retirement from pro football—citing concerns for the game’s possible impact on his long term health. Some responded by applauding him for his self-aware decision and others accused him of being a quitter, but most recognized that it was a personal decision that had to have been extremely…

How Would Jesus Disagree? Podcast

Disagreements are a part of life. They happen in competition, on the job, and at home. Since we can't avoid conflict, how should we deal with it? This week on Sport.Org we will look to the pages of Scripture to see how Jesus handled disagreement. To help us, former college football coach, Tommy Bowden, and former Super Bowl referee, Dean Look, will…

"Come Unto Me..."

It is the NFL’s equivalent of NASCAR’s silly season, and players are moving from team to team so quickly that it seems impossible to keep up. Though the superstars in the NFL make millions, however, many players are just happy to have a job—and that is a sentiment easily understood in the light of the current economic climate.
