Back To Work

NFL training camps open this week (for some teams, rookies have already reported), and these weeks of workouts in the summer heat will prepare players and teams for the heat of battle in the season to come.

Giving Our Best Effort

Measuring success in sports is often directly related to effort. This was certainly true of former NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice. In spite of what were considered relatively slow times in the 40 yard dash coming out of Mississippi Valley State, Rice’s work ethic showed his commitment to getting the absolute maximum out of his ability. His offseason workout regimens…

Balancing Life’s Responsibilities

One of the most difficult things in sports is multi-tasking. We see it in the NFL at a management level when head coaches try to also carry on as general managers—a strategy that usually ends badly.

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…
