NFL IS BACK! NFL IS BACK! NFL IS BACK! What are we watching for in Week One? Oh, maybe to see if Peyton Manning's neck will suddenly detach from his shoulders. Then there is the Saints vs. RGIII story. The rookie has to go into an angry Superdome (Fox, 1 p.m.) and run an offense that has been a disaster for the last 10 years or so. Let's not forget 49ers-Packers on Sunday with Erin Andrews making her NFL debut. Our heads are going to explode! JUMP!
So there was a wedding proposal during last week's final Colts preseason game. The cast was: Hannah Y., a second-year Colts cheerleader and Indiana student studying dentistry. The balding guy is @bradleycarrico, an Indiana bro who figured a meaningless Colts-Bengals game would be a romantic place to ask his girlfriend to marry him. Yes, Bradley is wearing loafters, khakis & a horrible Colts polo. Yes, we want to know why she said 'yes.' JUMP!
The NFC South could go any number of ways. Sure the Saints or the Falcons are the favorite, but Cam Newton and the Panthers look impressive. Supposedly Josh Freeman lost weight and the Bucs will be better? We'll believe it when we see it because, you know, the whole college coach switching to the NFL thing has worked so well recently. Is this the year Matt Ryan gets over the hump? Will Drew Brees overcome Bountygate? JUMP!
Congratulations AFC South, you are officially the worst division in the NFL. If the Texans don't run away with this division it's going to be a miracle. Matt Schaub should be grinning from ear to ear because he'll be facing off against one rookie and two second year QBs. If Chris Johnson returns to form, the Titans might win some games...but the Jaguars? Well, they might be Europe's first team sooner than you think. 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!
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!
Back in May we reported some big time WAG news. Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Ann Lux was reportedly engaged to Red Sox infielder Will Middlebrooks. It was an adorable story. The two met when they were 12-years-old and grew up together. It was practically a movie script waiting to happen. Until now. A seemingly normal photo surfaced of Lux out on the town with some friends...but look closer. No engagement ring! That's right, Lux ditched the rock! 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!
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!
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!
Where to start with the Indianapolis Colts cheerleading bikini shoot debacle of 2012? It was a year ago when I ripped the organization for sending its girls to the Ohio River for a bikini shoot. This year the team decided to class things up by holding the shoot at some giant house and a cesspool creek. At least at the Ohio River the girls weren't on their knees. Whose ass within the Colts organization needs kicked? JUMP!
Wait, did you hear that Phyllis Lapin from The Office was a St. Louis Cardinals cheerleader back in the 1970s? Yes, that was news in 2011, but Yahoo! entertainment writers brought back that news this week. Did you know Teri Hatcher was a NFL cheerleader? Did you know the L.A. Rams cheerleaders were in an episode of CHiPs where they're van was pulled over by Ponch & John? Shall we take a look at NFL cheerleaders who went on to TV success? JUMP!
BC Cheerleader Editor Asher sent me a gChat this afternoon asking, "So is this a nip slip?" There was a link to Facebook, which was perplexing. Next thing I know, there's a Vikings cheerleader on my computer with slight slippage. Of course, this being the Internet, preseason nip is a story. It's slight slippage so don't think your boss is going to fire you. It didn't take the Vikings brass long to delete the areola. It was gone after about 30 minutes. JUMP!
