Malik Hooker: Putting The Game On Ice

Malik Hooker

We knew that we were in for a physical game against the Redskins on Sunday. They led the NFL in rushing in Week 1, so we were sure that they would try to establish the run early against us. Our goal was to stop the run and make Washington become a on...

Our Run Game

Our Run Game

Latavius Murray

I’ve heard that some people may be concerned a little about our run game since we haven’t used it much. Would it be nice to run the ball more? As a running back, of course I’m going to say yes. But the important thing is winning gam...

My Advice to Kids

Making it in this world as an adult is hard. But with everything going on these days, I’d say it’s even harder for kids. As adults, we should try to help the younger generation whenever we can whenever we can and however we can—even...

Week Two Recap; A Humbling Lesson

Richard Sherman

Whenever you are able to walk away from a close game with the win, you can’t help but feel a sigh of relief. We got off to a great start and a nice lead heading into the fourth quarter. But Matthew Stafford—he was not going to go down wit...

J.D. making a convincing case to be AL MVP

After 148 games last season, the Red Sox had a record of 85-63 -- and led the Yankees by three games in the American League East. A year later, after the same number of games, the Red Sox enter Saturday's games with a record of 101-47, and stand...

Taking On The Champs

Taking On The Champs

DeSean Jackson

We had a big win Week 1 and we’re looking to do the same thing against the Eagles this week. Yet again, nobody is picking us against the champs and that’s OK. We like everyone doubting us so we can have the chance to prove people wrong....

Focus is key, on and off the field

Focus is key, on and off the field

Latavius Murray

Focus—it’s an understated quality for successful NFL players. Without it, how can you train as hard as you can in March when you have months until training camp? Successful players, heck—successful people, are able to focus on their...

Looking Back: Week 1

Kareem Hunt

When you win a game like we did last week, you can look at the positives and move focus to next game, but I got to give credit where credit is due. My boy Pat balled out like we knew he would with 4 touchdown passes & our defense held the Charger...

Tackle Like I Always Tackle

Tackle Like I Always Tackle

Richard Sherman

I can appreciate what the NFL is trying to do with the new targeting rule. I get that the league and many others think it's going to be just like every other time they decided to focus on something. You know- things like pass interference, the il...

From Florida To The NFL

I knew playing professional football could be in my future once I was able to touch the field at UCF and be the player I knew I could be. I knew that if I work hard I could be unstoppable and maybe have a chance to make it to the next level. &nbsp...

Silencing the Doubters

DeSean Jackson

There was a lot of talk centered around us this offseason. People were doubting the fact that we were a team who could come together and take that next step. The experts wrote us off when Jameis was suspended and they said we’d finish last in o...

Catching and Cooking

Devin Funchess

When people find out that I am a NFL football player, few people act surprised. They see a 6’5” guy who is in top shape and they just figured that I play some sort of professional sport. However, when I tell people that one of my passions...
