It's Now Even Harder For Former NFL Players To Prove They Have Dementia It's Now Even Harder For Former NFL Players To Prove They Have Dementia

PHILADELPHIA — In a ruling that will likely make it even more difficult for players with dementia claims to get paid under the terms of the NFL’s concussion settlement, a federal judge overseeing the settlement has given the NFL even more than it asked for and enforced a stricter diagnostic criteria to be used by…

The Chargers Smothered The Ravens With An "Insane" Game Plan The Chargers Smothered The Ravens With An "Insane" Game Plan

Today’s NFL might be dominated by creative approaches to offense, but the Chargers went to Baltimore on Sunday and won a playoff game with a daring and innovative blueprint for their defense.

Can Los Angeles Ever Love The Chargers?

CARSON, Calif. — I had been in Los Angeles for less than 12 hours, and the first indication I got that the Chargers even existed was when two dudes at a breakfast diner overheard me talking to a server about why I was in town, which was to write a story about the Chargers.

The Jets Failed To Clean House The Jets Failed To Clean House

Todd Bowles was doomed. That much was clear seven weeks ago, after a 41-10 home loss to the Bills, who were starting a fourth-string quarterback in another lost season of their own. The question for the Jets on this Black Monday is why general manager Mike Maccagnan got a reprieve.

Alabama Football Player Stops Himself From Saying Something Interesting About Kyler Murray Alabama Football Player Stops Himself From Saying Something Interesting About Kyler Murray

When asked a question about Heisman Trophy winner and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, Alabama defensive lineman Quinnen Williams almost gave an honest answer in advance of Saturday night’s Orange Bowl.

How Are Russell Wilson And The Seahawks Doing This?

With Sunday night’s win against the Chiefs, the Seahawks improved to 9-6 and locked up a playoff spot for the seventh time in Pete Carroll’s nine seasons as head coach. This was not exactly an easy-to-predict development. Injuries and age had taken their toll, so the defensive core of the roster—Cliff Avril, Michael…

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Brian Batko did an oral history of Pitt’s 3-0 loss to Oregon State in the 2008 Sun Bowl—the “worst bowl game ever”—and it’s great fun. There’s the game-week practice that had to be cut short because the Panthers players were hungover, the punter who broke a cinder block with his hand, and…

Louis Riddick Shares His Extremely Smart Thoughts About Addiction And Mental Health Louis Riddick Shares His Extremely Smart Thoughts About Addiction And Mental Health

Louis Riddick wasn’t responding directly to fellow ESPNer Stephen A. Smith’s latest dose of stupid, but in this clip from this morning’s episode of Get Up, it certainly seemed like that’s what Riddick was doing.

Man, Vance Joseph Really Messed That One Up Man, Vance Joseph Really Messed That One Up

It’s been nearly 48 hours since Broncos head coach Vance Joseph made what might have been this season’s worst coaching decision (non–Nathan Peterman, Starting Quarterback Division). But now there’s math to let us know just how brutal Joseph’s play-call actually was.

Bill Fralic Was A Real-Life Incredible Hulk Bill Fralic Was A Real-Life Incredible Hulk

Most legends grow to become something beyond their actual size. That never seemed to be true of Bill Fralic, the former University of Pittsburgh and Atlanta Falcons offensive lineman, who died Thursday at the age of 56. He was as big as he was often described to be, and if you’re a certain age and you grew up in…

How The Patriots Screwed Up In The Miami Miracle

After a brief hiatus for the Deadspin Awards, the Emergency Football Show Weekly is back, so try to contain your excitement. This week, Dan and I savor everything about the Miami Miracle and marvel at Mike Tomlin’s clock mismanagement. Also, Dan eats a little shit about the Cowboys, defenses finally get their due, and…

I Don't Think Stephen A. Smith Watches Much Football

On this morning’s First Take, an ESPN show for people who really should have slept in, Stephen A. Smith broke down tonight’s Chargers-Chiefs throwdown by reminding us to keep an eye on Spencer Ware (out with a foot injury), Hunter Henry (out since May with a torn ACL), and Derrick Johnson (no longer in the NFL).…

What The Hell Happened With Ben Roethlisberger On Sunday? What The Hell Happened With Ben Roethlisberger On Sunday?

Sunday’s loss to the Tankin’ Grudens has sent Yinzer Nation into a full-on panic. The Steelers are still in first place in the AFC North, but they’re only a half-game up on the Ravens and they’ve lost three straight after a 7-2-1 start, with the Patriots and Saints up next. But what’s had every Greg in Wexford…

In an interview that aired this morning on Good Morning America, Elissa Ennis explains the abuse she says she sustained from her ex-boyfriend, NFL linebacker Reuben Foster, her reaction to Washington’s decision to sign Foster just days after the 49ers released him following his second domestic-violence arrest, and why…

Jets Overcome 16-0 Lead With Thrilling Come-From-Ahead Loss

For once, everything seemed to be going against the Jets.

Sounds Like Aaron Rodgers And Mike McCarthy Are Pretty Well Sick Of Each Other Sounds Like Aaron Rodgers And Mike McCarthy Are Pretty Well Sick Of Each Other

Sports Illustrated’s Kalyn Kahler went long on the simmering frustrations inside the Green Bay Packers, who are 4-6-1 and careening toward a second straight playoff-less season. There are lots of juicy morsels in there about the staid culture that was created under longtime former GM Ted Thompson, who moved into a…

How Deshaun Watson And The Texans Finally Got Rolling

The Texans have rattled off eight wins in a row, which is extraordinary in and of itself. That they’ve done it after starting the season 0-3, with quarterback Deshaun Watson coming off ACL surgery in just his second season as a pro, is all the more impressive. They’re also doing it with Watson playing behind one of…

Here's A Really Bizarre Stat About The Steelers

The Steelers lost to the Broncos on Sunday in Denver, in a game that seemed to make no sense: They outgained the Broncos by more than 200 yards, with Ben Roethlisberger throwing for 462 yards—the fourth-highest total of his career. They lost largely because they turned the ball over four times, including twice right…

What The Hell Happened To The Jaguars? What The Hell Happened To The Jaguars?

In all seriousness, the Jacksonville Jaguars began the season as a possible Super Bowl contender. Coming off a run to the AFC championship game that was largely short-circuited by a lack of aggressiveness and some predictable offensive play-calling, the Jags seemed to have the defense and the all-around infrastructure…
