The Summer of Gronk has come and gone. The days of shirtless partying and taking body shots off half-naked chicks are sadly over...for now. With the NFL season starting next week, Sports Illustrated has chosen to feature the big fella on the cover for their 2012 NFL preview issue. Sure Gronk is toning things down during the NFL season, but he has officially released his new work-out motto: "Do it for the chicks!" JUMP!
Once again it looks like the NFC North is the Packers division to lose. Aaron Rodgers and co. look ready to make another Super Bowl run in 2012, but the Bears and Lions don't look like they are too far behind. Matt Stafford will probably get hurt again by mid-season, but if Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall get on the same page the Bears should be dangerous. Which team will rise from the pack? Will the Bears overcome Rodgers? Will the Packers dominate? JUMP!
The AFC North has quickly become one of the toughest divisions in the NFL. We're just going to go ahead and gloss over the Browns because, really, are they even worth mentioning? The Bengals had a nice little run and were one of 2011's surprise teams. Andy Dalton and A.J. Green stepped up as rookies to bring the Bengals from obscurity to mediocrity. Can they compete with the Ravens and Steelers for a division title? Don't bank on it! JUMP!
Episode 4 of Hard Knocks aired last night and once again the WAGs stole the show. Lauren Tannehill and Jackie Long were doing their thing for some charity, typical WAG work. Then this caught our eye...was Lauren Tannehill checking out the reporters cans?! Can it be? In other WAG news, we saw the debut of Kristian Fong, Mike Pouncey's girlfriend. Oh, and Les Brown's girlfriend stole the show...again. JUMP!
Looking for a sweet new spot to hang with your bros on Sundays? The NFL season is right around the corner, so look no further than these six sweet, multi-million dollar pads owned by NFL'ers. Sure these money-holes have been on the market for quite a while now, but that benefits you! They've seen some serious price drops, so now is the perfect time for you to swoop in. Imagine watching football this Fall in Joe Montana's basement or Kurt Warner's prayer room? JUMP!
The 49ers surprised everybody last year with their run to the NFC Championship. Alex Smith and Coach Jim Harbaugh gelled and Patrick Willis led one of the most feared defenses in the league. Looks like the Niners will be back atop the division because everything else is looking pretty sad. John Skelton and Russell Wilson could be week one starters. As for the Rams? Matt Barkley is looking promising! JUMP!
Meet the NFL Cheerleader Rookie of the Year, Whitney Ward. This chick hasn't cheered in regular season game and BC is handing Ms. Ward the prestigious award. Name another rookie NFL cheerleader in college, who looks like she parties, is blonde and has bikini photos for you guys. You can't. Once again, BC Cheerleader Editor Asher goes out of his way to unearth a chick who's about to become an Internet legend. JUMP!
By now we all know the deal with Dez Bryant and his new rules. The guy can't go to strip clubs, has to be home by midnight, blah, blah, blah. It's pretty sad that it's come to this with Dez. The guy has all the talent in the world and just can't seem to get his sh*t together. The guy was sued by creditors, got in a nightclub fight with Lil' Wayne, then to top it all off, he went and beat his mother. The Cowboys have had enough. No drinking! No strippers! Babysitters! Twitter went nuts! JUMP!
The AFC West is always a question mark. Chargers-Broncos. Broncos-Chargers. Throw Peyton Manning into the mix and things get even hazier. DEN & S.D. are clear front-runners in the division, but will Peyton's neck stay healthy? Maybe. Will Philip Rivers be Philip Rivers? Probably. Going to go ahead and count the Chiefs and Raiders out already because how far can Carson Palmer and Matt Cassel really get you? 9-7 wins the division, right? JUMP!
Sorry to interrupt what was probably a great Monday. Could use some help here. Look at this Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader pic we found. LOOK AT IT. The picture was a screenshot from this weekend's game against the Patriots. Let's just say this girl has seen better days. Why can't we figure out who she is? Yes, this is our bread and butter, but this time we need your help. JUMP!
You know who nearly died during yesterday's Broncos-49ers game? This security guard taking a David Akers laser to the left shoulder blade. Even Joe Buck was concerned for Security Bro, thinking he was concussed from a shot to the melon. Replay shows it was a shoulder shot, though. You put Akers' left leg in the thin air and he's bouncing shots off people standing 10 feet behind the end zone. Thankfully Security Bro will survive and hopefully work a full season. JUMP!
Catch any of the Jets-Panthers game last night? Jets looked good right? This team is becoming more and more of a laughing stock with every passing week. Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano keep telling fans that things are fine, that they're waiting until the regular season to "unleash" their offense. The media is quickly becoming very critical and so are fans. They're sick of Tebow, sick of Sanchez and sick of the lack of scoring! JUMP!
Can we get past the notion that the NFC East is the best division in the NFL? Enough is enough. The Cowboys, like usual, look good on paper. Michael Vick will be on IR by week 10, leading to the Nick Foles era. RGIII and the Redskins are going to be a bright spot, but it looks like the division is the Giants to lose again. Even Vegas is saying the Cowboys are in huge trouble. The OVER/UNDER wins total is set at 7.39. Yet another year of mediocrity. JUMP!
What do we know about the AFC East heading into the 2012 season? The Patriots, with the addition of Brandon Lloyd, should sweep the division, win 12 games and have home-field advantage in the playoffs. The Dolphins will be lucky to win 3-4 games, the Jets will be lucky to break .500 and the Bills are still Bill Belichick's b*tch. Don't waste your time emailing us that the Jets can win the division. Look at the schedule. It's a mess. JUMP!
Of course you have a '69 Jersey' buddy. You know the guy: lives by YOLO. He's probably married; his wife hates him, too. But he's the hardo who'll walk into an opposing team's stadium wearing a 'Your Mom 69' jersey. Your goal is to not get stabbed or shot. 69 YOLO doesn't care. The wife is about to leave his ass and he's not at a football game to meet a wife. He's there to crush beers and maybe throw a couple punches. JUMP!
We had to wait until week three of the preseason for a brutal, cringe-worthy injury, but thanks to Marc Mariani we now have one. Mariani, a third year pro out of Montana, was returning a kick in last nights game against the Cardinals when his leg got tangled up on his way to the ground. The end result was something grizzly, something that would cause more pain than I hope to endure in a lifetime. JUMP!
