Shawn Bradley: Now that the former second-overall pick has retired, ESPN's Patrick Hruby says Shawn Bradley will always be remembered as a world-class dunk enabler, the ultimate posteriz-ee, and 7 feet 6 inches of feeble intentions.
Maurice Clarett: Bullz-Eye's Shawn Griffin quickly grew tired of hearing about Maurice Clarett and concluded that he'd rather sink with Jim Tressell than swim with Jim Brown.

Ten Observations from Championship Sunday in the NFL: 49ers 28, Falcons 24 1. The Falcons may have been overly concerned about Kaepernick. The Falcons went into the NFC title game knowing they had to at least contain Colin Kaepernick. They did that – it’s just too bad that they didn’t defend anyone else in the process. The Falcons were so concerned about Kaepernick [...] [Continued at The Scores Report. Comments?]
NFL Playoffs: Quick-Hits from the Divisional Round: + Everyone thought the Ravens’ game plan on Saturday would be to take the pressure off Joe Flacco’s shoulders by making Ray Rice the focal point of the offense.

Ten Observations from Wild Card Weekend in the NFL: 1. Mike Shanahan cost both his quarterback and his team on Sunday. That was a shameful display of coaching on Sunday by Mike Shanahan.

Ten Observations from Week 17 in the NFL: 1. Adrian Peterson is this year’s MVP. It wouldn’t be a travesty if Peyton Manning were to claim this year’s MVP award.

Ten Observations from Week 16 in the NFL: 1. Nobody should sleep on the Ravens. The Baltimore Ravens could go from playoff afterthought to Super Bowl contenders very quickly. Their fate depends on Joe Flacco, who finally awoke from his month-long slumber to complete 25-of-36 passes for 309 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Ravens’ 33-14 rout of the Giants [...] [Continued at The Scores Report.

Ten Observations from Week 15 in the NFL: 1. Adrian Peterson is this year’s MVP if… Nobody doubted Peyton Manning’s ability to lead the Broncos to an AFC West title this year. The biggest question surrounding Peyton was his ability to absorb a hit, not fill the one need Denver desperately needed on offense. People assumed he would do that. But nearly every [...] [Continued at The Scores Report. Comments?]
Ten Observations from Week 14 in the NFL: 1. The Redskins dodge two big bullets. It’s ironic to think that back in April Mike Shanahan and the Redskins were blasted for drafting quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round instead of filling one of their many needs. Because just over five months later Cousins wound up saving a game for the Skins, if [...] [Continued at The Scores Report. Comments?]
