Newton. Wilson. Kaepernick. These three names are united under one banner: dual-threat. Going against tradition, these three (among others) have gone outside the pocket and rushed for yardage just like a running back. Defensive Linemen and Linebackers alike have been stressed with moving backward than forward towards the QB, since the play-caller is rushing right past them. In recent years we've seen an emergence of these dual-threat QBs, most importantly 2012. In that year's draft, guys like RG3, Andrew Luck and Russel Wilson were drafted. Hoping to reinvigorate their legacy, the Colts...
Actor Chris Waters is finding himself in the middle of a couple controversial projects lately.
In an ironically accurate commercial, Waters stars in a spot for Beats by Dre opposite the polarizing NFL player Richard Sherman. The ad positions the Seattle Seahawks star as himself getting grilled by reporters, including Waters, in the locker room. Of course, no one knew the commercial, which premiered the same day as Sherman’s real-life outburst, would be so timely.

I love the idea that Brett Favre can live up to 275 (as random a number that is) years old, I love the idea that Brett Favre has never stepped a foot out of place, I even love the idea that he's been THE face of the franchise for the past 17 or so years, but come on... enough is enough! This is the guy year after year come the off-season becomes a part of the front office, feeling that he can make decisions on who the Packers should pick in the draft, who they should go after in free agency and who the Packers should cut or trade from the roster.

Let me first start by saying how happy I am that the Patriots finished the regular season 16-0. They have set the standard for every other team to follow in the future. Unselfish team play and a willingness to play a full 60 minutes week in and week out allowed this team to reach perfection. I did predict that this would happen in about week 8 or so, so I am also happy that I was right (it doesn't happen that often). Now they need to finish the job and win the Super Bowl to go 19-0. It won't be easy, and they are the hunted (as if they weren't before).
