On Wednesday, the same day the Baltimore Ravens announced the passing of linebacker Jaylon Ferguson, Super Bowl champion turned sideline analyst Tony Siragusa passed away at the age of 55. Following the passing of former NFL standout Tony Siragusa, the American football community is in sorrow. NFL Legend Tony 'Goose' Siragusa Dies At Age 55 After going undrafted in that year's Draft, "The Goose" signed with the Indianapolis Colts and played for them for seven seasons before switching to the Baltimore Ravens. Before quitting in 2001, he went on to assist the Maryland team in capturing their first Super Bowl. Siragusa, a former defensive tackle, went on to have a prosperous career as a sideline analyst for FOX, in addition to presenting a number of television programs and dabbling in acting. He turned 55 in May, and according to Aaron Wilson of the Pro Football Network, he passed away in his sleep. Ravens legend Ray Lewis said that From the first day they met, he knew that life was different. He knew that Siragusa was someone who would change his life forever. He was a one-of-a-kind individual who gave you a sense of significance and exclusivity. A man like that is impossible to replace. He was the ultimate competitor on the field, inspiring the best in each of us. Brad Jackson, a different ex-Ravens teammate, claimed that Siragusa "was the leader." Our captain, he was. To everyone, he meant the world. Sad day today. They recently spoke on Sunday and this sudden loss was awful. After Baltimore was mentioned in the first season of HBO's Hard Knocks, many NFL fans began to respect Siragusa. The native of New Jersey developed a reputation as a practical joker when he reportedly locked up several of his teammates in a trailer before Shannon Sharpe retaliated by driving his car to...

Tony Boselli’s HOF Eligibility Has Been Questioned By NFL Legend Bruce Smith!

If you are a hardcore football fan, it's very likely that you've heard of the Hall of Fame controversy between Bruce Smith and Tony Boselli. Let's take a sneak peek into what actually the matter is.  The Pro Football Hall of Fame dignifies remarkable football professionals. As of 2022, there are a total of 362 members in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Bruce Smith's Underhanded Moves Went Wrong! Tony Boselli, a former American Football player is one of those enshrined members this year. Boselli played in the National Football League for seven seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He's also the first player on this team to actually make it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Bruce Smith, a former American Football player (defensive end) who played in the National football league for 19 seasons, however, has a different opinion on this matter. In a lengthy Instagram post, he clarified how Tony Boselli is 'incapable' of receiving this honor of being in the Hall of Fame.  Smith played against Boselli in a 1996 playoff game as he mentioned in the post. He also said "Tony was a dangerous opponent during his brief career, but I find it impossible to compare the entirety of his body of work with that of the NFL's best-left tackles," Smith says, indicating that he is not pleased with Boselli's Hall of Fame induction. Bruce Smith is regarded as one of the all-time best defensive linemen in the NFL. From 1995 through 2001, Boselli was a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played three games in 2001 before being drafted in the expansion draught by the Houston Texans in 2002 and retiring due to injury. He was a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro First Team pick. He was selected to the Hall of Fame's All-Decades Team in the 1990s. On...

2022 NFL Season: Which Team Will Dominate This Season? Which Team Will Perform Less? Bold Pre-Season Predictions!

With the 2022 NFL season officially underway, it's time to go all out. My bold predictions for the 2022 NFL season are as follows. "This is how I informally interpret the AFC hierarchy at the moment!" Kansas City ChiefsBuffalo BillsTampa Bay BuccaneersGreen Bay PackersLos Angeles RamsLos Angeles ChargersDallas Cowboys San Francisco 49ersBaltimore RavensCleveland BrownsCincinnati BengalsDenver BroncosIndianapolis ColtsTennessee TitansPittsburgh SteelersMiami DolphinsPhiladelphia EaglesArizona CardinalsNew England PatriotsLas Vegas RaidersNew Orleans SaintsMinnesota VikingsWashington CommandersNew York JetsSeattle SeahawksChicago BearsAtlanta FalconsCarolina PanthersNew York Giants Jacksonville JaguarsDetroit LionsHouston Texans I believe the first dozen teams on the list will win more games than the Patriots. Given the likely suspension of Deshaun Watson, I suppose Cleveland is a bit of an unknown, but those 12 are just superior to New England's Patriots. No. 13 is, of course, Jacksonville, which has taken the first overall pick in each of the last two draughts. Trevor Lawrence, in my opinion, still outperforms Mac Jones. And I believe Travis Etienne, who missed the whole 2021 season due to a Lisfranc injury, will have a breakout season in his first season.  Whatever you think of Christian Kirk's deal, he's an upgrade in Jacksonville, and he'd be the No. 1 wide receiver in New England. The Jaguars bolstered their offensive line this summer, most notably by signing free agent Brandon Scherff. Meanwhile, the defense bolstered themselves through free agency and selection. No. 1 overall pick Travon Walker, as well as linebackers Devin Lloyd and Chad Muma. The Chiefs' selection of Skyy Moore after a great first round to address other pressing defensive concerns at cornerback and pass rusher, on top of acquiring JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, returns their receiving pop for Patrick Mahomes.  Andy Reid's squad usually has a high floor near the ceiling because of Mahomes' presence and a good complementing defense. Finally, while I believe Bill Belichick is the greatest football coach...

Terry McLaurin, the ace wide receiver for the Washington Commanders, is one of several top-end players at his position vying for a new deal this summer. The former third-round choice from Ohio State appears to be underpaid in the great scheme of things after straight 1,000-yard seasons. As a result, McLaurin has avoided volunteer off-season activities. Terry McLaurin will not attend the club's minicamp on Tuesday after a dispute with his team over a contract extension. The discussion got moving, but MacLaurin decided to return to Florida to practice alone.

Baker Mayfield To The Minnesota Vikings Is Seen As A Possibility This Year

Baker Reagan Mayfield is an American football quarterback who plays for the Cleveland Browns (NFL) of the National Football League. He was selected by the Browns with their first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. This Year, It Was Assumed That Baker Mayfield Will Go To The Minnesota Vikings!! Mayfield broke the record for a rookie quarterback to throw for a touchdown in his NFL debut, leading Cleveland to its first win in 19 games, slip and lose 635 days. Speculation about the future of quarterback Baker Mayfield has swirled since the Cleveland Browns decided to sign DeShawn Watson from the Houston Texans. The former first overall nominee is definitely out of place in Cleveland right now and doesn't seem to want to see if Watson will be suspended for long before making a decision. The Browns are definitely aiming to move Mayfield to another club, but which team could they be? The Minnesota Vikings aren't the first team that comes to mind, but Dan Graziano has heard rumors that the Vikings could be an "outside-the-box" suggestion for a potential Mayfield trade. Minnesota Vikings is a professional football team based in Minnesota. They are members of the NFC Northern Conference of the National Football League (NFL). The team was founded as a development team in 1960 and started playing the following year. With 30 losses, the Vikings hold the NFL record for the most losses after a season in league history. They are the only NFL team to win a combination of regular season and records that haven't won the Super Bowl yet. Kwesi Adofo-Mensah was vice president of football operations for the Cleveland Browns for the past two years before becoming general manager of the Minnesota Vikings this summer. So it's no surprise that the Vikings have been named a potential destination for some current...
