Rob Lowe Stands By His Reporting Lacrosse Is The Druggiest College Sport

Rob Lowe Stands By His Reporting Lacrosse Is The Druggiest College Sport:  Today in sports: Rob Lowe defends his Peyton Manning retirement scoop, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco cannot recklessly ride his skateboard in peace, and the inventor of the football flak jacket has died.

Rob Lowe is aggressively defending his Peyton Manning-is-retiring Twitter scoop, telling NFL Network’s Rich Eisen that he got the information about Manning’s retirement from “a pretty darn good source.” While we want to live in a world where Rob Lowe scooped the entire pro football media fraternity about the future of one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, we wish the information came from a damn good source, or even a darn good one. That ‘pretty’ has us wondering if the tidbit came from the proverbial guy who knows a guy who sold Colts owner Jim Irsay a guitar pick that once belonged to Jimmy Page.
According to a hugely depressing profile in this month’s issue of GQ, former all-pro wide receiver Terrell Owens is broke, incredulous that no NFL team wants to sign a 37-year-old wide receiver with bad knees, and willing to do just about anything for a paycheck, especially if it will let him continue to plot his NFL comeback. Owens has responded to this unflattering portrayal by announcing that he’s going to play for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He’s also a part owner of the suburban Dallas club, which means he’ll be signing his own paychecks, which is exactly the kind of business logic you don’t want to display when GQ is saying you’re out of money and out of touch with where you stand professionally.

Giants Vs Packers Score

Giants Vs Packers Score: Giants vs Packers score: Eli Manning 37 yard TD to Hakeem Nicks ends half time

Eli Manning drilled in a 37 yard touchdown to Hakeem Nicks to distance the Giants against the Packers 20-10 in the first half of the NFC Divisional Playoff game. Manning already completed 14 of 24 passes for 274 yards to exploit the defense of the Packers. He threw two touchdowns to Nicks as the Giants continue to dominate the top ranked Packers.

Nicks already caught five times for a whooping 152 yards that included the 66-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter and the 37-yard at the end of the second quarter. Nicks has been extricating himself from the Packers defense that couldn’t keep up with the surprise offensive package of the Giants. Victor Cruz also caught three catches for 46 yards as the Giants have the edge in the passing game.

On the other hand, the Packers offense has been stagnant though it can explode anytime with Aaron Rodgers as the anchor. Rodgers completed 12 of 21 passes for 117 yards with only a touchdown. He is being harassed and pressured by the Giants defense that he struggled most of the time. The passing game of the Packers is being tamed by the Giants defense that it couldn’t be the same like the way people expected it to be. Continue Reading…

Patriots Rout Broncos 45-10 in AFC Playoff Rout

Patriots Rout Broncos 45-10 in AFC Playoff Rout: Tebowmania had no chance against Tom Brady’s playoff pedigree.

All the heroics, all the big plays and quite a few records belonged to Brady and the New England Patriots on Saturday night in a 45-10 rout of overmatched Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Brady threw six touchdown passes, five in the first half, putting the Patriots into the AFC championship game and silencing the nationwide frenzy surrounding Tebow.

The Patriots (14-3), winners of nine straight games, will host either Baltimore or Houston next Sunday for a spot in the Super Bowl. Saturday night’s romp snapped a three-game postseason losing streak, two of those at Gillette Stadium, and lifted the Patriots to the verge of their fifth Super Bowl appearance in 11 seasons. They’ve won three of those, two with Brady as the game’s MVP.

“We came in and started fast and it was a big win for us,” said Brady, who even got off a 48-yard punt on third down. Continue Reading…

Alex Smith 49ers Silence Their Doubters

Alex Smith 49ers Silence Their Doubters: Drew Brees piled up points, yards and accolades in a record-setting season for the New Orleans Saints. Much of the time, Alex Smith did just enough to get the San Francisco 49ers back in the playoffs for the first time in nine years while a dominant defence and kicking game did the rest.

Everybody is curious to see which of the contrasting styles works best in a classic playoff matchup.

Does that old notion that defence wins championships still hold up these days?

“We’re going to find out,” 49ers punter Andy Lee said.

Brees and the Saints (14-3) come to sold-out Candlestick Park on Saturday afternoon riding a nine-game winning streak after gaining 600 yards in each of their last two games, including a playoff-record 626 yards in last Saturday night’s 45-28 win over the Lions.
