[ad_1] When do historical figures become immortal? Arguably, that happens when they creep into our day-to-day lives. For instance, consider the Titans. In Greek mythology, the Titans included the twelve children of the gods Ge (Earth), and Uranus (Heaven). The Titans were huge and powerful. Thus, the Titanic ship was named as such. Today we say that “Jane is a business Titan,” or that “Shakespeare was a titan of Renaissance literature.” Here are some interesting facts about some other titans, the Tennessee Titans: 1. The origins of the “Titans” are Greece and Memphis The Tennessee Titans were formerly the Houston Oilers, where they played from 1960-1996. After relocating to Nashville, Tennessee in 1997, the team played two NFL seasons as the Tennessee Oilers. The team’s owner, Bud Adams, then decided […]

[ad_1] Yes Vick is a Hall of Famer and it’s really based on one specific point; you can’t tell the story of football history without mentioning his name; and trust me we’re not talking about a footnote. Michael Vick was a phenomenon on the field. No one had ever seen such athletic ability from the quarterback position. This was more than an Otto Graham, a Doug Flutie, Steve Young or even a Randall Cunningham. Vick had a sick juke equipped with tremendous vision and a great sense of pressure. Posting a sub 4.2 40 yard dash time doesn’t hurt either. Vick’s hall of fame career began with establishing a football hall of fame college career. Virginia Tech was the spot to be when Michael took the field. Hell Michael was […]

[ad_1] The University of Arkansas Razorbacks running back duo of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones made a very big impact on the Southeastern Conference (SEC) with their Wild Hog formation (predecessor to the Wild Cat offense in the NFL) before making a splash in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Darren McFadden and Felix Jones were teammates who both very successfully played the same position (running back) at the University of Arkansas. Both players were All-Americans and this abundance of talent at the same position put the Arkansas head football coach in the position of having the very desirable “problem” of how to utilize having too many good players for one position. The solution to the dilemma of how to maximize the abilities of both Felix Jones and […]

[ad_1] The most famous quarterbacks in Green Bay history are without a doubt Bart Starr, Brett Farve, and yes Aaron Rodgers. Even though Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have history and longevity on his side, he is still putting up some mind-boggling numbers. You really can’t compare the three quarterbacks. The careers of each quarterback came during different eras in football. Each had their own strengths, and played under different rules. The NFL has made a lot of changes over the years and to compare Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre to Bart Starr is unfair. Most Green Bay Packer fans are very knowledgeable about the historic career of Brett Favre, and the blossoming career of Aaron Rodgers. However, most are too young or don’t remember the amazing career of Bart Starr. Personal […]

[ad_1] The Washington Redskins, surprising to most who are unfamiliar with the NFL, are actually located in Washington D.C. They play their games at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, and are part of the NFC East in the NFL. The Washington Redskins are the second most valuable NFL team with more than $1.5 billion in worth. They have been a member of the NFL since 1932, although they weren’t always known as the Washington Redskins. The Washington Redskins team, which started as the Boston “Football” Braves, has played in 11 championship games, and won five. Three of those were Super Bowl titles, and they have played in a total of five Super Bowls. Four of those appearances occurred during the reign of coach Joe Gibbs.   Interestingly, the Redskins are […]

[ad_1] One thing that confuses and angers me about 90%of the football strength training programs out there is that everyone does the same thing. The Wide Outs go through the same training as the QB’s. The Corners do the same exercises, sets and reps as the Lineman. And Kickers, who knows what the hell they do… It’s as if we’re weren’t different enough as individuals, now we’re going to take guys who perform extremely different functions on the field and have them all train the same way? Insanity, plain and simple. How can guys who perform duties that are in completely different worlds all do the same strength workouts? Sure, there are many similarities. There’s a base of movements and exercises that everyone should do…however, how, when, and how much […]

[ad_1] Crisp fall days, the roar of the crowd, the aroma of the tailgate barbeques in the parking lot. If you can’t tell already, I am a football fanatic. I love the game, from my days playing in high school, to watching my favorite teams, to coaching and watching my two sons, I love everything about football. So it’s little wonder that I see so many similarities between the way a great football team runs, and a great business. Football is the greatest team game, and successful businesses aren’t successful without great teamwork. Let’s look at five ways you can get your business working like the most successful football teams. No football team, whether college or professional, gets anywhere on the field without first assembling a roster of top talent. […]

[ad_1] If we are talking about playing football, I think most of us want to be a striker or forward player, it’s because we think that the striker is the best position in the game and the others just for supporting the striker. And also we think that the striker is a hero for the team because he makes scores and finally wins the game. Sometimes common people say that they win only because of the Forward players or the strikers. But actually, their assumption is wrong, because the main thing that is important in football game is teamwork. Each player in the game must be discipline and do their duty based on their position. Without that, the play will be bad and the team won’t win the game. In […]

[ad_1] As school winds down and as the summer approaches, high school football players prepare for the upcoming year. Many of these athletes participate in summer sports camps to maintain physical shape, hone in on their skills and improve endurance and flexibility. Knee injuries, particularly ACL knee sprains and tears are a common occurrence during this time, and require medical attention and protection as competition to make the football squad becomes more aggressive. There is much controversy concerning the effectiveness of wearing braces for protection following a knee injury or used as a preventative piece of equipment just like shoulder pads, helmets and chest protectors. New knee braces like the Bledsoe NZONE have been designed specifically for football, addressing both the functional aspect of a knee brace and as a […]
