    Getty Jimmy Garoppolo attempts to throw the ball against the Broncos on September 25, 2022. “Jimmy Garoppolo was Horrible:” Among four words straight from the mouth of a talkative San Francisco 49ers legend who brought the franchise Super Bowl titles. And this 49ers icon played with both Joe Montana and Steve Young — but didn’t mince words about the current QB1 of the 49ers following his performance against the Denver Broncos…even accusing Garoppolo of “sitting there posing” and saying on the radio “you do not smile and go handing the other team after the game.” 3-Time Super Bowl Champ Critical of Jimmy G Brent Jones scorched Garoppolo during his Monday, September 26 appearance on the Tolbert and Copes Show on KNBR 680 AM/104.5 FM. “I am laying the blame, I don’t do this very often, in fact I don’t do it hardly at all.

    Getty Steelers QB Mitch Trubisky is facing criticism following the team's loss to the Patriots. The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t happy campers after their recent loss. The Steelers fell to 1-1 following their 17-14 loss to the New England Patriots. Unlike the prior week in which Pittsburgh pulled off a dramatic 23-20 victory in overtime over the Cincinnati Bengals, there wasn’t much to feel good about in this one. The Steelers struggled on offense all game, with quarterback Mitch Trubisky turning in a sluggish performance. The veteran quarterback went 21-of-33 for 168 yards (5.1 yards per attempt), one touchdown and one interception for a 73.8 quarterback rating. Trubisky’s lack of aggression came under criticism following the game, with the most notable comments being from former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher. The current NFL Today on CBS commentator ripped Pittsburgh’s starting quarterback, claiming that he’s more concerned with not making mistakes rather than making plays.

    Getty Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was nearly without his star QB in 2018. The Seattle Seahawks parted ways with their greatest quarterback in franchise history this offseason, trading Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. However, the Seahawks nearly made a move that would have sent the Super Bowl champion to a different team in the AFC years earlier. Brady Henderson, ESPN.com’s Seahawks beat writer, shared some insight into what happened to cause Wilson to want to leave and seek a trade to play for a new team. According to Henderson, the Seahawks nearly pulled the trigger and shipped off Wilson back in 2018 to a different AFC team. “The Seahawks, according to someone in Wilson’s camp and the Seahawks’ front office, called the Cleveland Browns before the 2018 draft to discuss a trade that would have swapped Wilson for the No. 1 overall pick,” Henderson said. “Wilson’s agent, Mark Rodgers, found out. The Browns weren’t interested, but Seattle’s flirtation motivated Rodgers to secure a no-trade clause when he negotiated Wilson’s four-year, $140 million extension the following April.”...
    Len Dawson, legendary quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer who led the Kansas City Chiefs to victory in Super Bowl IV, has died, according to his family. He was 87. Dawson entered hospice care earlier in August after working for the Chiefs for nearly 50 years, 14 years as a quarterback and 33 years as a broadcast analyst after hanging up his cleats. The NFL legend retired from broadcasting in 2017 after dealing with a series of health issues, including prostate cancer and a quadruple heart bypass surgery.

    Texas football legend Vince Young believes Arch Manning will redshirt his freshman season. With Arch Manning slated to join the Texas football program in January, Longhorns legendary quarterback Vince Young expects for the five-star quarterback to redshirt his freshman season. Young appeared on ESPN’s First Take on Thursday morning to discuss the Texas football program. The 2005 BCS National Champion quarterback spoke with fellow college football legend and former NFL veteran wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson about the possibility that Manning actually redshirts. Doing so would create two years of separation between Manning and Quinn Ewers.“I really feel like Arch has a great opportunity,” said Young to Johnson on ESPN’s First Take. “One of the things that I’m hearing is that he is going to redshirt. That’s going to help out a lot, so you can understand how to travel with the team. Get the feel of the fans, the university.” Redshirting is dangerous in the era of NIL, but it worked out for Young back in the early 2000s.“So when you have those types of things and you take a year off like...
    If Najee Harris is like Hines Ward, then that is only a good thing for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Vince Williams expects running back Najee Harris to take on a bigger leadership role in his second year with the team to become somewhat of a Hines Ward. Williams appeared on The Arthur Moats Experience with Deke, touching on Harris being an ideal fit for the Steelers to build their team around “not only athletically, but also culturally”. Harris was a former first-round pick by the Steelers for a reason, as he took home the Doak Walker in his final season at Alabama. Harris has long been a team-first type of player, so this is not really a surprise. This is Williams’ quote of comparing Harris to Ward, a Steelers legend who belongs in Canton.“He gives me a lot of that Hines Ward-type vibe,” said Williams. “He’s smiling, he’s kissing the babies, but then he keeps it real in the interviews. He speaks true, he works hard, he’s dedicated to his craft, he’s no-nonsense. I think that’s gonna be...
    Getty Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph doesn't appear to have a great relationship with Ben Roethlisberger. It looks like Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph hasn’t forgotten. As Rudolph enters the Steelers’ offseason activities as the veteran quarterback in the system, he’ll be competing with first-round pick Kenny Pickett for the starting job. With that being said, he’ll also have to teach a thing or two to the rookie quarterback considering he’s the one with experience. It’s not exactly unfamiliar territory for Rudolph as it wasn’t too long ago he was the rookie to Steelers legend Ben Roethlisberger back in 2018. Needless to say, the relationship began a little awkward and Rudolph has not forgotten about it. As Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette mentioned during his column on Thursday, June 2, Rudolph managed to take a jab at Roethlisberger while discussing the idea of mentoring Pickett. “As a veteran now, does he find himself trying to take on the responsibility of helping first-round pick Kenny Pickett, as opposed to being … ‘Being like someone else?’ Rudolph said. Rudolph didn’t...

    Getty Images Kyler Murray scrambles against Jaylon Smith in 2020. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was born and raised in Texas. Unfortunately for Texans, that hasn’t stopped the young quarterback from being dominant against his home state. Murray was born and raised in Allen, Texas and was a Texas high school football standout. In college, he played for Texas A&M before transferring to Oklahoma. He is also 9-0 at AT&T Stadium dating back to high school and college. Murray has led the Cardinals in defeating the Cowboys twice in the last two seasons.

Former LSU football star and Cincinnati Bengals starting quarterback Joe Burrow is doing his part to help the Bayou Bengals land five-star Dante Moore‘s commitment. Burrow was present during Moore’s official visit to LSU this weekend. While it is a new regime in Baton Rouge with Brian Kelly taking over for Ed Orgeron, there may not be a better ambassador for all things LSU football these days than the 2020 Heisman Trophy winner. As with Moore, Burrow grew up in Big Ten country. The belief is he will help bring the five-star down to the SEC.

    18-year veteran signal-caller Ben Roethlisberger took time to speak about the life of a young man and fellow Steelers quarterback who left this Earth far too soon. It was the kind of news that left many in stunned disbelief. Former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, drafted in the first round by Washington in 2019 and a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2021, lost his life early Saturday morning when he was struck by a dump truck. There are still details regarding the accident that are unknown. The 24-year-old performer was in Florida along with some fellow Steelers for workouts organized by new Steelers’ quarterback Mitch Trubisky. The story was followed by a lot of emotion from both players and those close to the NFL in terms of media. As expected, there were many reactions to the news and the opinions it drew.Steelers: Ben Roethlisberger pays tribute to Dwayne HaskinsOn Sunday evening, recently-retired Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger turned to Twitter.

    Getty Head coach Kyle Shanahan of the San Francisco 49ers congratulates Jimmy Garoppolo #10 after a one-yard touchdown run against the Jacksonville Jaguars during their NFL game at Levi's Stadium. For San Francisco 49ers legend Steve Young, the Niners’ failure to win a Super Bowl is due to a lack of trust between Jimmy Garoppolo and head coach Kyle Shanahan. Despite an appearance in Super Bowl LIV and playing in the NFC Championship twice, the 49ers fell just short in 2019 and 2021. Now, it appears the Jimmy G “era” is coming to an end with San Francisco looking to deal the QB this offseason. Young went on KNBR to discuss the current state of the team, with the three-time All-Pro not holding back when assessing how Shanahan and Garoppolo performed together. “When he joined the team, the team needed a quarterback to make some throws, and they didn’t have that,” Young said. “Jimmy can make throws, he’s a starting quarterback in the league. How far he can go, I feel like in the end was limited by...

So now that Brady has called time on a record-breaking career, what next for the man they call The Goat? What next for Tom Brady? A devoted family man, it's likely Brady will take some time away from football to recuperate after a gruelling career which began in 2000.

    Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady announced that he still hasn't decided whether or not to retire on his radio show Monday night, after a weekend of conflicting reports about his future in the NFL. Brady, 44, left open the possibility that he might return to the field for a 23rd season.   'I'm still going through the process that I said I was going through,’ he said on Let's Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray. 'Sometimes it takes some time to really evaluate how you feel, what you want to do. And I think when the time's right, I'll be ready to make a decision one way or another.' Brady cleared the air after ESPN reported on Saturday that the seven-time Super Bowl champion was leaving the league, citing unidentified sources. The report was quickly denied by his father, Brady's agent Don Yee and a follow-up Associated Press report citing sources close to Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Getty New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson on January 9, 2022. As we know, the New York Jets have two top-10 draft picks in 2022 (No. 4 and 10). The burning question around Jets land right now seems to be whether GM Joe Douglas should use both of those picks on defense, offense, one of each, or trade one of the two further back for more selections.

    Pitt Panthers quarterback Kenny Pickett knows just how important Ben Roethlisberger has been to the Steel City. He’s ready to replace him. A tweet is merely a tweet, and a like is a like. We can’t possibly make too much out of it. Nonetheless, it’s tough not to notice Pickett’s social media trends as we near the NFL Draft in a few months. Pickett is just one of the quarterbacks who will be considered first-round prospects, and the Steelers are in need of one of those signal-callers. Pickett knows what it takes to win in Pittsburgh, and to do so as a Steeler would make him a whole other level of city legend. He’s up for the challenge, if the Steelers are into the idea.

The offense has looked good too as Zach Wilson threw well within Mike LaFleur’s system going 9-of-14 for 118 yards and a rushing touchdown.

    Najee Harris was an absolute legend for Alabama football but another all-time Crimson Tide great convinced him to choose Bama over Michigan.  Despite all of the Alabama football greats, particularly at running back over the past decade, Najee Harris stands above the rest — at least in the record books. The now Pittsburgh Steeler rewrote the rushing record book, finishing his college career as the Crimson Tide’s career leader in rushing yards (3,843) and rushing touchdowns (46). Oh yeah — he also helped Alabama to two National Championships in his time under Nick Saban. Back when Harris was a recruit, though, it wasn’t a foregone conclusion that he would end up with the Crimson Tide. The then-No. 2 ranked recruit in his class was making a decision between Alabama and the Michigan Wolverines. In the end, though, it was another member Alabama football (though not at the time) who helped the running back ultimately land with the Tide.Najee Harris chose Alabama football thanks to another Crimson Tide legendDuring an interview posted to TikTok (h/t Saturday Down South), Harris said a...
    The 49ers gave up a ton to trade up for Trey Lance in the 2021 NFL Draft but franchise great Joe Montana thinks they might’ve got the wrong guy. Joe Montana knows a thing or two about succeeding at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. The Hall-of-Famer led the franchise to four Super Bowl victories over his time there. But now he has an eye on their current quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance. As the 49ers have been frustratingly middling over the first half of the 2021 season and Garoppolo drawing the ire of many fans, many people are ready to hand the ball and the keys to the team to Lance, who San Francisco traded up for in the 2021 NFL Draft, making him the third quarterback off the board after Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson. However, if Montana were running the show, the legendary quarterback said he would’ve gone a different route with that pick. Namely, he would’ve taken Mac Jones over Trey Lance, as he said on College Football Live: Joe Montana on College Football...

    Bills’ all-time great Bruce Smith was unimpressed by Myles Garrett’s quarterback graveyard and, after seeing the Hall-of-Famer’s, it’s easy to see why. Earlier in October, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett decorated for Halloween with a quarterback graveyard on his front lawn. In essence, he had a headstone for every quarterback he had or will play this season. This apparently caught the attention of Buffalo Bills legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Bruce Smith. Smith even said it inspired him. Of course, that inspiration was to show Garrett “what a real quarterback graveyard” actually looks like.

    Getty Joe Montana believes Tom Brady could play as long as he wants. At one point in time, the benchmark for Tom Brady’s retirement was the age of 45. However, as time goes on, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback continues to push the belief that he can play even longer. After making headlines for hinting that he could play until the age of 50, Brady’s strong play at the advanced age of 44 is making people believe that he can play for as long as he wants. Count legendary quarterback Joe Montana as one of those people. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback — Brady’s idol growing up — believes that the veteran quarterback can play for as long as he can throw a football. The lack of physicality that quarterbacks face in comparison to year’s past leads Montana to joke that Brady could play until the age of 60. Montana explained his reasoning during an interview with USA Today Sports. “They don’t even touch him,” Montana said. “He’s hardly ever getting hit. So, he could play until...

With Giants quarterback Daniel Jones heading into what could be a make-or-break season this year, one former legend has fully bought in on him. Giants Super Bowl Champion and franchise sack-leader, Michael Strahan, played a round of golf with his friend in finance, Jones and wide receiver Sterling Shepard recently, and came away very impressed with the Giants’ third-year signal caller. According to Strahan, Jones took an interest in a number of different avenues, from financial advice from their fourth member, to leadership tactics from Strahan himself, a former captain of the Giants. “Daniel latched on to him, to ask him advice in that [financial] world,” Strahan said to NJ advanced media. “He and Sterling were asking me advice on the leadership role — and how to get guys to buy in to a system. “It wasn’t [just] about: ‘Oh, let’s go play some golf and have some fun.’ It was: ‘I want to ask things that are going to help us in our careers and as a team.’...
    We Never Knew How Much We Missed Sister, Sister Until Tia Mowry Squashed Our Hope for a Reboot 11 Home Renovations With the Worst Payoff For 15 years, sports fans everywhere have been talking about Tim Tebow. In two sports and across three leagues, the former Florida Gator has always been a story. However, his time as a professional athlete appears to be coming to an end. Tebow was attempting an NFL comeback this season after six years away from the sport. He came up short in his quest to convert to the tight end spot and found himself among the Jaguars' first cuts of the 2021 NFL season. It doesn't seem likely that another NFL team will sign Tebow. Perhaps he could play baseball again — or try another sport — but it looks like Tebow's time in the spotlight will be limited to the SEC Network. If Tebow's time as a pro athlete is done, it has been one wild ride. Frankly, there hasn't been a career like that of Tebow's, and there may never be one again....

Over the last couple of weeks, the Las Vegas Raiders have lost important members of the team in President Marc Badain and running backs coach Kirby Wilson. Though they have yet to find permanent replacements for those two guys, they have added to their coaching staff. According to Tashan Reed of The Athletic, the team is hiring former Canadian Football League quarterback Damon Allen this offseason as part of the Bill Walsh Diversity Fellowship program.

    Getty Quarterback Daniel Jones #8 of the New York Giants warms up against the Baltimore Ravens. The New York Giants have zero quarterback controversy this offseason. Although, depending on how things go throughout the year, they could soon have a quarterback dilemma on their hands. Daniel Jones is fully entrenched as the team’s starter. Yet, if he fails to show growth in season three, Dave Gettleman and company could easily be looking to move on from the former Duke Blue Devil come next spring. Whether it’s fair or not, quarterbacks are judged, at times unjustly, at a rapid rate these days — a practice that Giants legend Phil Simms is still trying to wrap his head around. “My favorite thing is listening to TV, reading articles — ‘make or break years.’ And when I say that, it’s like I’ve never seen so many quarterbacks, ‘This is it! Make or break! Gotta do it! Make or break!'” Simms told CBS Sports. “Well what does that mean, Super Bowl? These type of things, it’s crazy.” The latest Giants news straight...
    A true American football legend Tom Brady qualified for his top 10 on Sunday nighte The Super Bowl final with his new team, the Buccaneers. At 43, who already has a tremendous career, quarterbacks can never impress. Return to his exceptional journey. At age 43, Tom Brady continues to write his legend in American football. On Sunday night, the quarterbacks qualified for their 10th Super Bowl final with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Florida). The most successful player in the history of the National Football League (NFL), who has already won six Super Bowls, will try to win his seventh title against Kansas City Chiefs on February 8. In his early days, however, nothing foretold such a life. Born in San Mateo, California, near San Francisco, Tom Brady grew up with his three sisters and soon developed an interest in American football and baseball, showing himself to be very talented in both fields. Forced to make a choice to coordinate the university teams, the young man chooses American football and takes the direction of the Wolverines of the University of Michigan,...
    Getty Josh Allen throws a pass in a game against the New England Patriots. Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is making one more very important pass for the team. The Hall of Fame quarterback posed for a photo this week that showed him “passing the torch” to the team’s new signal-caller, Josh Allen. The two have forged a strong relationship over the last three years, with Kelly offering some mentoring and support to the quarterback who just led the Bills to the AFC Championship game for the first time since Kelly was at the helm.

    Getty Daniel Jones #8 of the New York Giants reacts against the Dallas Cowboys during the first quarter. While Joe Judge and Dave Gettleman remain firmly committed to Daniel Jones as their quarterback, the jury remains very much out on the third-year signal-caller. Jones has certainly had his moments in the league. With that said, they all too readily tend to come few and far between, leaving those in NFL circles and even some within the Giants‘ inner circle — hesitant to anoint the former Duke Blue Devil as the clear-cut answer under center.

    Getty Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon Chicago Bears fans could not have been prepared for all this. The only Super Bowl-winning quarterback in team history just blasted the entire organization, which is nothing new — but when Jim McMahon said the rival Green Bay Packers were the best team he has ever played for, Bears Twitter lit up Clark Griswold’s house on Christmas. In an appearance Wednesday on 1252 Sport Chicago’s FatMike Chicago Sports Show, McMahon gave unflinching and candid takes about everything from the current state of the franchise in Chicago to the decision to draft Mitch Trubisky, and while the former Bears quarterback is known for his blunt honesty, he has never said anything like this. McMahon, who started his career getting drafted by the Bears and finished it in Green Bay backing up Brett Favre, said this about his two seasons with the Pack: “It was the best team, or the best organization, that I’ve played for of the seven teams I’ve played for,” McMahon said. “By far, from top to bottom.” The latest...
    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones compared quarterback Dak Prescott’s injury rehab to a certain legend’s comeback. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not need the entire summer to negotiate a contract extension with quarterback Dak Prescott like last year. Prior to the start of the start of the 2021 league year, the Cowboys signed Prescott to a massive four-year, $160 million contract extension months after he suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. During an interview with USA Today’s Jori Epstein, Jones was asked why he felt confident in making Prescott one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in NFL history. The Cowboys owner replied by saying that Prescott’s injury rehab reminded him of how legendary Michael Irvin came back from his major injury. “We compared his rehab with a guy that I thought was legendary as far as how he handled his rehab when he was first injured, and that was Michael Irvin,” Jones told USA TODAY Sports. “Michael Irvin had the most conscientious work-hard at that time that most that were around his rehab said, ‘I’ve never...
    Getty Charlie Weis What will the New England Patriots do with the No. 15 pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft? That might be one of the biggest mysteries of the draft as we sit just over two months away. By the time the draft rolls around, the Patriots might have already addressed the starting quarterback position. There might be a trade for a big name like the Houston Texans’ Deshaun Watson or a second-tier option like the Las Vegas Raiders or the San Francisco 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo. Perhaps we’ll see a free-agent signing of a guy like Jameis Winston or Mitchell Trubisky. There is also the chance Cam Newton could be back as the team’s starter.  It would be a surprise if the Patriots don’t draft a quarterback at all, but it wouldn’t be a complete shock if Bill Belichick elected not to use his first-round selection on a new signal-caller. If his former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis had any say in the situation, it seems clear who his favorite would be, and that’s Alabama’s, Mac Jones.  Follow...
    Getty Dak Prescott Two of the most revered wide receivers in Dallas Cowboys history are speaking out in solidarity with Dak Prescott. Beginning with the “Original 88,” Drew Pearson, who issued a warning to the Cowboys’ front office over potentially franchise-tagging the previously-tagged quarterback, a repeat maneuver that likely would catalyze Dak’s departure from Big D. “Where do you go if you don’t sign Dak?” Pearson asked rhetorically in a recent interview with CBS Sports, via Inside The Star. “If you let him go, especially if you let him play under the franchise tag this season and you don’t sign him anywhere along the line to a long-term contract, Dak ain’t gonna be here after that. The man has a lot of pride and he sees what’s going on. He wants to be quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. It is a big deal.” “If he has to play the full season under that franchise tag, Jerry’s really taking a risk in that case … not only with Dak as a quarterback of the Cowboys but within the rest...
    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl 55, and did it with an incredible blend of diversity and greatness among the coaching ranks. Sunday night in Tampa Bay, the confetti that swirled through the air after Super Bowl LV was pewter and gold. Leftwich’s offense, against a defense that featured star defensive linemen Frank Clark and Chris Jones, and an All-Pro safety in Tyrann Mathieu, dictated to Kansas City from the opening whistle to the final gun, producing 340 yards of total offense, including 145 punishing yards on the ground. The Buccaneers so thoroughly dominated because of so much more than Brady’s 201 yards and three touchdowns. This was the Buccaneers’ most effective game plan, on both sides of the ball, capping a season that saw Tampa get better and better as the season wore on, culminating with this staff and this team’s Magnum Opus. “None of what we saw on Sunday was a surprise,” Arizona State head football coach, and former Jets head coach Herm Edwards tells FanSided. “Both of them are very talented and detailed. They do a...

    Russell Wilson has come out to complain about the Seahawks protecting him and Walter Jones isn’t a big fan of what he had to say.  Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has made plenty of headlines this week after he’s come out and complained about getting hit too much. In case you missed it, Wilson said that he’s grown frustrated over how often he’s getting hit and sacked. In other words, he indirectly called out the play of Seattle’s offensive line. At the same time, Wilson also said he needs to play better in order for the pressure to reduce too. Regardless, Hall-of-Fame offensive tackle Walter Jones has responded to Wilson’s latest comments, and the Seattle hero isn’t pleased at all.

    Getty Matthew Stafford runs on the field before his last game of the 2020-21 season. The future of Matthew Stafford with the Detroit Lions has become a big talking point lately, with seemingly everyone having a take on whether or not the quarterback should stay or go later on this offseason. A take hadn’t come from this point from someone close to the organization, but Barry Sanders changed that more than a bit while making the media rounds. Speaking with the Rich Eisen Show, Sanders was asked if he thought the Lions’ future should be with Stafford. As he said, in his opinion, that should be the case.
