Lots of big-time stories are going around as the 2013 NFL year is entering the final month of the regular season, and there is a lot more going on than just the playoff races. Those things include a Dolphin being done, a coach getting a hefty fine, and a Seahawk having a short return.
The NFL is looking to make its global following much bigger than it already is, but they’ve got to have some things straightened out before people will accept it. That includes having some incredibly strange happenings going on around the different teams.
The NFL has a lot going on as the season prepares to get ready for the final quarter of the year. Playoff races will be heating up and teams are going to start battling it out for a spot, but there is a lot happening off of the field as well.
The Dolphins (5-5) beat San Diego 20-16 Sunday to remain in the race for an AFC wild-card berth and cap an eventful week.
Whatever playoff hopes the San Diego Chargers had when they got off the plane to start the weekend in Miami were certainly not encouraging going home with them come Sunday evening.
Miami held San Diego without a touchdown over the final three quarters, and Brent Grimes broke up Philip Rivers’ final pass in the end zone as time expired, giving the embattled Dolphins a 20-16 win Sunday.
Chargers left tackle King Dunlap has been ruled out of Sunday’s game at Miami because of a neck strain.
Don’t call this just another game for the San Diego Chargers. For all intent purposes, Sunday’s game in Miami against the Dolphins is an AFC playoff game.
We should be disgusted by anyone who condones Incognito, excuses Incognito or ignores Incognito. We should be disgusted by anyone who blames Martin, teases Martin or trivializes Martin.
All news about NFL isn’t always about football, and doesn’t always have to do with the action that takes place on the field. A couple of coaches dealt with some scares over the weekend. A teammate made another feel like an outsider. And a murder from years ago finally gets a conviction.
While the weekend’s action brought about a lot of rare occurrences and big-time happenings, there were also a number of situations that turned rather ugly. If there is an NFL weekend that includes a complaint filed against one’s own team, a player entering rehab, and a starting quarterback getting injured, then it’s not the best weekend in the world.
Guard Richie Incognito has been suspected indefinitely by the Miami Dolphins after allegations surfaced about his suspected bullying of teammate and former Harvard-Westlake student Jonathan Martin.
The NFL is filled with every type of emotion imaginable, but sometimes, there are those emotions that just take over and get to the forefront. At times, anger can take over an NFL player and it can just get to be too much for someone to take.
The NFL isn’t always fun and games as sometimes it can lead to some scary, frightening and downright sad situations. This week was filled with court cases, injuries and Europe getting NFL action that they may not even want anymore.
The first week of the NFL season often brings forth a lot of info about how the rest of the year could go. It shines the light on those that look like contenders and focuses on those that are pretenders. Week one also brings about injuries that could really hurt a team for the rest of the season.
