Retired Football Legends: Where are They Now?

2019-20 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fandom Player News  where retired legends football

When former NFL quarterback Brett Favre entered the Hall of Fame in 2015, he had not been out of the public spotlight for very long. His long, drawn-out retirement, which started in 2002 and continued into 2013, kept his name in the news. Unlike Favre, though, many other famous football players didn’t stay in the news after their retirement, even when their post-retirement achievements were newsworthy. That being said, here’s a look at what a few famous players of yesteryear have been up to since retiring.

Jim Brown

Many people consider former Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown to be the greatest player in NFL history. A multi-sports star and All-American lacrosse player at Syracuse, Brown entered the NFL as the first round sixth pick in 1957. His 942-yard rookie year earned him the league’s rushing championship, which he would win eight more times. By 1965, Brown held league records for 100-yard games, single-season yards, career rushing yards, average yards per carry and career touchdowns. In his final game, Brown scored three touchdowns.

Before retiring, Brown had already begun an acting career. He became the first major black action star, appearing in such classics as “The Dirty Dozen” and “Three the Hard Way.” In 1993, Brown helped kick off the Ultimate Fighting Championship as a commentator. Since 1988, he has helped kids from gang backgrounds through his Amer-I-Can program. He is part-owner of a lacrosse team, and remains an adviser to the Browns.

Tim Foley

A Purdue Boilermakers All-American defensive back, Tim Foley joined the Miami Dolphins as a third-round pick for the team’s first winning season in 1970. That year, the Dolphins’ defense allowed an AFC low of 11.6 yards per catch. The next year, Foley made an interception in three consecutive games for a total of four in the season, which culminated with the Dolphins going to the Super Bowl for the first time. In 1972, Foley added three more interceptions to his stats as the Dolphins won every game to take Super Bowl 7 from the Washington Redskins. In 1973, Foley returned two blocked punts for touchdowns in one game as the Dolphins won a second consecutive Super Bowl, defeating the Minnesota Vikings. Foley continued playing until 1980, going to the Pro Bowl in his second-to-last year and achieving career totals of 101 games started, 510 tackles and 22 interceptions. He was named the Dolphins’ 28th best player of all time by The Phinsider.

Foley went on to an equally successful career at Amway, America’s 30th largest private company. By 1998 Foley had qualified as a Crown Ambassador, which had been the highest possible level until Amway added a Founders Crown Ambassador level to recognize exceptional achievers. In 2005, Foley became a Founders Crown Ambassador.

Joe Montana

Following a come-from-behind Notre Dame Cotton Bowl win, the all-time greatest clutch quarterback joined the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of the 1979 draft. Replacing Steve DeBerg midway through 1980, Montana led the league with a 64.5 percent pass completion rate, scoring the first of 31 come-from-behind victories with an overtime win over the New Orleans Saints. In the 1981 NFC Championship, Montana marched the 49ers down the field from the 11-yard line to come from behind and defeat the Dallas Cowboys with a pass that would go down in NFL history as “The Catch.” The 49ers went on to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl 16, the first of Montana’s four Super Bowl victories. After earning three Super Bowl MVPs, Montana went down with a 1991 injury that took him out for the 1992 season, propelling Steve Young to starting quarterback. Requesting a trade, Montana ended his career with the Kansas City Chiefs from 1993 to 1994.

Today, Montana struggles with chronic pain from his football injuries. He and his wife, Jennifer, have been horseback riders since 1996, and they raise horses and produce wine in Napa when they’re not in San Francisco. This year, Montana tossed the coin to start Super Bowl 50


We want the REAL Johnny Football – Not the Coward. (archival article)

 I don’t know if Johnny Football’s fans are complicit in this scheme or are merely clueless. I do know, however, that we are at war. Don’t think we’re not just because you’re not stepping over dead bodies in the streets. We’re at war with Johnny Football’s sick publicity stunts. We’re at war with his chauvinistic slurs. And we’re at war with his maledicent histrionics. As in any war, we ought to be aware of the fact that my fantasy is to immerse myself in the grandeur and greatness of the college-Johnny Football world, a world in which it was unfathomable that anyone could desire to create an atmosphere that may temporarily energize or exhilarate but which, at the same time, will pose the gravest of human threats. As you’ve no doubt gathered, realizing such a fantasy requires honoring our nation’s glorious mosaic of cultures and ethnicities. Anyhow, I guess I’ve run out of things to say, so let me just leave you with one parting wish: Together, may we enlighten the mind of Man and improve him as a rational, moral, and social being!

OMG! Amazing High-tech Gifts For Football Fans of All Ages!

2019-20 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Personal Product & Services Promotions Technology  gifts football amazing   Football kicksoff the holiday shopping season as usual this Thanksgiving. Football and the holidays have become inseparable in America, with the traditional two NFL Thanksgiving games expanding to three in 2006. In fact, nearly twice as many Americans watched football than went shopping this Thanksgiving. The National Retail Federation reports that 43.1 million shoppers descended on stores as compared to 84.3 million who caught this year’s games.

All of this means that combining football and holiday shopping is a natural way to find the perfect gift for the sports fans on your shopping list. Here are a few high-tech items that make great Christmas gifts for football fans:

4K TVs for Watching Games in High Resolution

One of the hottest-selling items on Cyber Monday was 4K Ultra HD TVs, according to digital provider Adobe. With four times the pixels and twice the resolution of standard high-definition TVs, 4K TVs bring the football viewing experience to new levels of lifelike clarity. A few years ago UHD TVs were luxury items that cost thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars; however, this year prices have fallen to record lows with quality TVs available for $550 to $800. The website 4k.com provides a review of some of today’s top affordable options as well as higher-end models that can bring football to your favorite fan’s living room.

Mobile Devices for Playing Fantasy Football

The iPad Mini and iPad Air 2 were also among Cyber Monday’s hottest items, according to Adobe. For football fans, iPads represent an opportunity to watch games and get updates even when they’re not at their TV set. For instance, with NFL Game Pass, they can use any connected device to watch replays of all 256 regular-season games on demand as well as tune into radio broadcasts and watch Super Bowls and other games from the 2009 to 2015 seasons.

Mobile devices also provide fans with a way to keep up with their fantasy football leagues. T-Mobile’s website provides a holiday gift quiz you can use to find a wide selection of mobile devices and accessories for playing fantasy football. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S6 has a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display. TechRadar provides a rundown on the best mobile deals this shopping season, which includes the iPad Air 2 going for as low as $399 and Samsung Galaxy tablets selling for as little as $349.

Video Games and Consoles for Simulating Game Play

Video game consoles are also hot this year. Microsoft‘s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 came in high on Adobe’s list of Cyber Monday’s best-selling items. Both platforms support “Madden NFL 16,” which lets you bring your fantasy football picks to life with Draft Champions. “Madden 16” also gives you unprecedented new quarterback controls to let you control passing action along with letting you act as your team’s GM, watch highlight reels and build your ultimate team with history’s greatest players. Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are currently going for about $300, with some Cyber Monday sales going even lower. Madden 16 was selling for as low as $47 on Cyber Monday.

Workout Guide: Football Season Edition

2019-20 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Football Health & Fitness  workout season guide football edition

The 2019 NFL season is finally here. And that means instead of hitting the gym like usual, you’re going to be spending a lot more time on couch with your buddies in front of your flat screen, rooting for your favorite teams and fantasy players. The face-stuffing, beer-drinking, sedentary lifestyle that comes with every football season might leave you feeling a little heavier than pre-season. But the guys who follow winning teams might have an unfair advantage. And no, we’re not talking about Tom Brady’s balls and Deflategate.

A new study has shown that fans of losing NFL teams are more likely to be fat. According to a study from the Journal of Psychological Science, after a loss, losing fans eat 16 percent more saturated fats and 10 percent more calories, while fans of winning teams are more likely to eat healthy. If your team’s coach is in the hot seat this year, like the Eagle’s Chip Kelly or Jeff Fisher from the Rams, you better hide chips and dip. If you’re all about college football, prepare for this season’s biggest matchups. Whatever the outcome, win or lose, you should still be getting in some reps and staying fit this season. Here’s how:

Commercials: Push Ups

When it comes to hanging with the guys, even the littlest things can turn into a competition. Who can pick up that girl? Who can drink more beers? Who has the nicest car? A little competition is healthy, so bring that same competitive spirit to your living room while you’re watching the game with your bros. During each commercial break, challenge your friends to a push-up contest. See how many you can do. Whoever does the most reps wins. There’s not exactly a prize, just bragging rights.

Halftime: Touch Football

If you’ve got a crowd at your place, take everyone outside during halftime and toss-around the ol’ pigskin during halftime. Split everyone up into even teams and play a game of touch football. Moving a little bit, getting your heart rate up and breathing in some fresh air after two long quarters of sitting inside is good for you. Just don’t go too hard, you don’t want to pull something.

Timeouts: Planks

Work your core and pass the time during each timeout of the game. Like pushups, this exercise will spark a little competition between all the guys. See who can hold the pose for the longest time, with proper form, until play resumes. A little ab work never hurt anybody. Exercising during time out breaks will also help you cut back on snacking

Catch the Game at the Gym

For fitness junkies who are serious about breaking a sweat on game day, head to the gym and flip on the TV. Whether you’re using your home gym or you belong to a member’s only club, breaking a sweat and getting some cardio in while watching TV actually makes the exercise feel easier. A study from the University of North Carolina found that people who watched a video while working out had perceived less exertion. And, another study from the Journal of Behavioural Science showed that people who worked out in front of a TV actually exercised longer than people who weren’t watching. 🙂


Boost Your FANTASY FOOTBALL STRATEGY With These Tips

2019-20 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy Football Football games  winning strategy football fantasy

(from sporting news.com:)

Basics (If you’ve played for a few years, feel free to skip this section)

1. Knowledge is power. You HAVE to know your league’s settings. This is non-negotiable. Know what positions are required (2 QBs? 3 flex? No flex?), know how the scoring is broken down,  know if bonus points are awarded, etc. You can throw a wrench into your season from the very beginning by not understanding your league’s settings.

2. Do your research. You don’t need to know who has what assignment on an A-gap overload zone blitz (is that even a real thing?), but it’s important to know who the starting running back and receivers are for the Jaguars, who some of the backups are in Dallas and Philadelphia, and so on.

3. Personal touch. Make your own rankings. Yahoo!, ESPN, CBS, etc. are all going to have their own set of rankings, but yours may look a lot different — especially when you move beyond the top 30-40 or so. Your rankings will reflect your research and your strategy and will help you have an easier time during the draft.

4. Patience is a virtue. Don’t be the person who jumps on a kicker or defense a round or three too early. Not only will you announce yourself as fresh meat, but you could significantly lower your team’s ceiling.

5. Fantasy football “fitbit”. Everyone wants to get his and her steps these days. Use that same mentality in fantasy football. Be active on the wire, consume information, start players who are actually starting on game day. You’ll be surprised what simply being an active owner can do for you even if you had a lackluster draft.

Advanced

1. Pitch selection. One of the most basic things you’ll hear someone say regarding draft strategy is “get as much value as possible”. That’s certainly true, but “value” is such a fluid concept in a draft. At any point, the best value may be that boring, steady vet with the established ceiling and high floor. Sometimes it’s the flashy young player with high risk but an even higher ceiling. The key is knowing when to simply move the chains and when to toss the Hail Mary. Whatever you do, try to avoid “throwaway picks”. That’s not the official term, but you know it when you see it. “Oh, it’s the 12th round, Trent Richardson and his 3.3 yards per carry will come in handy at some point, right?” No! Even late in the draft, you want to avoid wasting picks on players that you know won’t give you anything. If you’re going to take a zero anyway, you might as well swing for the fences.

2. “Last man standing. In this day of specialization and committees, it can be difficult to sort through backfield pecking orders. It’s one thing if you know that Player A is going to handle early-down work and give way in passing situations or if Player B is a goal-line specialist, but how do you handle a situation like Cleveland or Dallas where multiple backs with similar skillsets are going to be battling for carries? Instead of guessing, just wait and pluck the second or third guy in the competition. Not only are you getting him at a cheaper price, but chances are solid that you’ll end up with the top option. You can also avoid these murky situations altogether, but it’s getting increasingly more difficult to build a team without dipping into these muddled competitions.

3. Stacking. While you shouldn’t necessarily set out to draft excess depth at a position or a number of players with the same bye, you shouldn’t be afraid to build on it if that’s how your draft has unfolded. Quality depth is never a bad thing, and you can usually trade from a surplus. As far as byes are concerned, I’ll reiterate that you shouldn’t go out of your way to have all of your players on one bye week, but sacrificing one automatic loss in exchange for a higher chance at a win in several other weeks isn’t an awful trade.
