After being down 28-3 in the third quarter of Super Bowl 51, the Patriots stormed back and took the game to overtime. At that point, Patriots’ safety Nate Ebner felt New England had the Falcons right where they wanted them. Ebner, in an interview with Go4it host Paul Gant, felt the Patriots were in a good shape once they received the ball first in overtime:
“I mean when we won the toss, with the momentum that we had, I think a lot of us would say there was no doubt we were going to go down and score,” said Ebner. “We were prepared to fight for however long it took. Obviously the offense took care of business, and the way they started moving the ball we just kind of wore them down, and it was just too much for them to handle.”
Former NFL quarterback Vince Young is attempting a comeback. According to his agent Leigh Steinberg, Young has been in talks with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL, and apparently there is some interest from the new Spring League. Also, Young has a trademark application out there for the slogan “Make Vince Great Again.”
I’m not sure at 34 Young can be great again, but I am rooting for the guy. Canada is a good start, and who knows what could happen from there!
Watch what you do on social media! According to former NFL player Fernando Bryant, his wife’s Instagram post from three years ago cost him his job. Bryant, who was drafted in the first-round by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1999, was the head coach for Strong Rock Christian School. Bryant’s termination letter cites social media as a reason for his firing.
This has been out there for awhile now, but don’t be surprised if Desean Jackson is wearing midnight green again. Jackson was a guest on Adam Schefter’s podcast “Know Them From Adam” where he had some interesting things to say about a possible return to Philadelphia:
“It definitely is a great story, I guess you could say. Starting your career somewhere and obviously going to a division rival team and having the possibility of maybe going back. I mean you kind of just think about all of that, where you started from and maybe where you want to finish it. It’s just a lot of speculation of a lot of thoughts. It almost sounds good but you never really know until the final decision is made. But I’m just a firm believer of you work hard, you put in the work, and continuously go out there and show everyone what you’re capable of doing. I think the sky is the limit for me. My agent, Joel Segal, is in a great position. I’m in a great position. Really I’m just going to let him be the expertise guy. He’s the one with all the experience. He’s been doing this for plenty of years. With the conversations we’ve been having, it’s great on our end. The best thing we need to do is stay under the radar, me continuously working out, and from there we’ll just sit back and see what teams are putting out there.”
The Eagles need a wide receiver, and Jackson might fit the bill. We’ll see how this plays out!
Listen to our interview with the newest member for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Kenny Easley. Kenny discussed many interesting things; including why the Pro Bowl should end, how God took the love of football away from him, his belief that the Patriots are the greatest franchise in the world, his belief that he would have been in the HOF sooner if he was a Free Safety, and so much more!
