It’s hard to believe, but it’s officially week 10 in the NFL, wow! Here’s some of the latest news and headlines from around the league.
* On Tuesday, Dallas Cowboys legendary quarterback Roger Staubach chatted with the Huffington Post about his former team, and quarterback Tony Romo. Here’s the 1985 Pro Bowl’s thoughts on his former squad, enjoy.
Wahoo! It’s “hump day,” which means it’s officially Wednesday! Here’s some of the latest news, headlines and more, enjoy!
* The New York Times reported on Tuesday that Penn State head coach Joe Paterno‘s exit would be within a matter of days or weeks, but now, there is a recent report that claims he is “the King of Pennsylvania.”
* The Washington Post published an interesting piece on the Redskins head coach Mike Shannahan, who apparently isn’t “Mr. Nice Guy.” Although, what exactly does that mean? Shannahan didn’t experience the greatest amount of success last season, especially since defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth stole a majority of the headlines before quarterback Donovan McNabb threw a tantrum in October and November. Shannahan knows how to win, so hopefully, this is a sign that things are turning around because otherwise, he, as well as his team will falter, again.
* Last Wednesday, I mentioned an interesting story about Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and his starting job. Well, once again, he’s another important figure this week, especially since Thursday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers will decide his role with the team. Yet, no matter the outcome, expect Newton to play a majority of the second half of the upcoming regular season, especially since they’ll have to play him at some point this year, right?
