Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon is a man of few words. His answers mirror his play on the field and that is he takes a straight line from point “A” to “B.” That’s it, don’t like it? Too bad. Vernon was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft. […]

Friend was deemed too short for major college football coming out of Mechanicsburg (PA) High School in 2011 where he was a two-time first team All-State lineman. But he was generously listed at 6-foot-2 and no D-1 schools came calling except Temple.
Friend proved the big schools wrong by becoming a four-year starter for the Owls and the face of head coach Matt Rhule’s program turnaround from doormat to national relevance.
Friend is hoping to find a home in Pittsburgh with the Steelers and prove all the teams that passed on him were wrong.

For those who detest the NFL preseason, the Green Bay Packers 24-9 win over the Eagles in the preseason opener for both teams, added plenty of fuel to your fire. Neither team played well really at all. The Eagles only highlight on offense was their opening drive when Carson Wentz led the Birds on a […]
