    SNIP The newly announced Colts head coach withdrew from the position hours later Tuesday, ESPN reported, choosing instead to remain with the Patriots as their offensive coordinator. McDaniels had been formally announced as the Colts’ coach Tuesday morning. The Colts not only confirmed McDaniels’ addition on social media, they announced an introductory press conference to be held at 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday. SNIP Patriots owner Robert Kraft reportedly had a hand in convincing McDaniels to return, offering to increase McDaniels’ salary if he turned down the Colts, according to ESPN. SNIP

  • So folks, what did you do instead of watch the Super Bowl?

    So what did you do? If you had a moment of weakness and watched the game, you can also confess here. My family? We ordered Out Back takeout and relaxed at home. Since we have never watched “Ash Versus Evil Dead” we started binge watching Season 1. It’s a hoot and the actor (Bruce Campbell) who plays the lead character bears an uncanny resemblance to Mitt Romney.

    No players knelt or sat during the national anthem as the Super Bowl kicked off in Minneapolis on Sunday, according to The Associated Press. Pop singer Pink performed a rendition of the song as players for the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles stood on the sidelines.

    President Trump and the first lady celebrated the Super Bowl at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. To kick off the celebration, Trump and Melania watched the Florida Atlantic University Marching Band and cheerleaders perform patriotic songs in front of the club. Trump, who is a big fan of the New England Patriots, wore a black suit and red tie. Melania was not so subtle. The first lady made sure to show who she was rooting for by wearing Patriots colors. Melania was wearing the red, white and blue of the Patriots as she watched the performance.

    This time, the New England Patriots were the victims of a Super Bowl comeback. MVP Nick Foles threw for three touchdowns and caught another as the Eagles defeated the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minn. Sunday night to win the franchise’s first NFL championship since 1960.

    If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl but you can’t stand the NFL take-a-knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not a single Eagles player sat or knelt during the national anthem, one of just seven teams with perfect non-kneeling records, in a season that saw 684 such incidents, according to a study released Thursday by Sports Pundit. The other Super Bowl LII team, the New England Patriots, landed in the middle of the pack with 17 incidents of anthem sitting or kneeling, wedged between the Buffalo Bills with 16 and the Cleveland Browns with...

    Here we are, Super Bowl Sunday. I have only watched 2 playoff games all year but I most assuredly will be watching the Super Bowl because, unlike some 84% of my fellow Americans, I’m a New England Patriots fan. Worse, for many of you, a Tom Brady fan. Been one since he took the helm as Michigan’s QB back in the 90’s. Hate me if you must, it’s a Wolverine thing. It is a shame that something as intrinsically American as a Sunday turf battle has turned into another political battleground. Not just because the NFL welcomed the #BLM premise...

    Pittsburgh and Philadelphia have always had a kind of love/hate relationship. We're joined by history and boundaries, but divided by more than 300 miles on the turnpike and more than 1 million people in population (we admit it, Philly's bigger). We might poke fun at the weird accents and food tastes of the other, but just like brothers, we'll defend those same idiosyncrasies against all outsiders. And this weekend, most Pittsburghers will take up arms to root on the Philadelphia Eagles against the much-despised New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. But there's more to love about the City of...

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said he won’t visit President Trump’s White House if his team defeats the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. “No, I’m not going to the White House,” Long said in an interview on Barstool Sports’ podcast Pardon My Take. “Are you kidding me?” Long, who was originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams and is playing in his 10th NFL season, played for the Patriots last season. He was one of several players who skipped the team’s White House visit after New England defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI....

    It wasn’t Tom Brady’s hand that set conspiracy theorists’ minds racing. After the Patriots’ come-from-behind, 24-20 triumph over the Jaguars in the AFC Championship on Sunday, an official walked over to the glove-less wonder and patted him on the back to get his attention. He then used the universal nice-job-man pat to the chest, congratulating the 40-year-old on clinching his eighth Super Bowl appearance. It was enough to gain notice of a few NFL players and enough to begin the complaints of every Patriots critic (meaning, every non-Patriots fan).

    There are many ways to respond to the rumors that Tom Brady might not be 100% healthy. After word circulated that the 40-year-old jammed his right hand and suffered a cut during a handoff Wednesday—and even more so after he missed practice Thursday—we saw just about all of those ways play out. From afar, Dr. David Chao suggested Brady may have an open finger dislocation. Riley McAtee investigated reports that Brady's thumb looked boxy in a glove during the open period of practice by looking at blown-up photos (then again, whose thumb doesn't look weird at 12x). Doug Kyed analyzed...

    This is a must read for both college and pro football fans. The best NFL coach of this generation has been friends for more than 30 years with the best college football coach, a fact that is remarkable but not entirely surprising. This is the story of a friendship that has made a lasting impact on the sport. They agreed to meet in West Point, N.Y., at a little hotel with a name neither can remember. For two men with deep connections to Navy, the locale was a surprising choice. All the better. This was in the late 1980s,...

    The Titans — and the officiating crew — played right into the hands of the Patriots in Saturday night’s 35-14 rout of Tennessee in the AFC divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium. The 14-3 Patriots, as defending Super Bowl champions, shouldn’t need such help. Not that they were turning it away or complaining. The first questionable call that went against the Titans came in the second quarter on a third-and-4 play from the Tennessee 27-yard line. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota connected with former Jets receiver Eric Decker on a pass that appeared to give Tennessee a first down to keep...

    It is, for now, a pipe dream that Giants fans can’t help but smoke: Bill Belichick in a blue hoodie standing on the sidelines at MetLife Stadium, chants of “Dee-Fense” erupting everywhere, reminding him of the way it was at Giants Stadium when Harry Carson owned the point of attack and Lawrence Taylor roared around the edge to terrify quarterbacks, providing cover for Eli Manning or Davis Webb or rookie Josh Rosen. SNIP But if you are the Giants … you damn well should throw it.

    Comedian and left-wing activist Sarah Silverman claimed “patriotism is perverted,” called President Donald Trump “childish,” and mocked what she called the “Christian fringe” in an interview to promote her new Hulu television series this week. In the first season of her 10-episode variety show, I Love You, America Silverman said there are “two kinds of patriotism.” “The right has perverted the meaning of being liberal, or being feminist. Even “social justice warrior” is an insult. We pervert language so much,” Silverman said in her interview with Vice. “Patriotism has always been a bit owned by the right. The last disillusion...
