We want to take this time during the off-season to recognize broadcasters, commentators, and analysts. During this day and age of media and technology, sports talk is an aspect of the game that we really enjoy. For this segment of “Athletes Turned Analysts”, we discuss two guys that truly belong on the tube! Continue reading

Tomorrow kicks off the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine! We couldn’t be more excited to get a glance at tomorrow’s NFL superstars! Last year we were so impressed by guys like Cam Newton and Julio Jones. These guys took that final interview/try out seriously. Both players had monster rookie seasons to boot!
After checking Combine coverage on NFL Network and ESPN, I have learned all the top players most folks will discuss. I’m more excited about seeing players who are not on everyone’s radar…guys who will not go in the first round, but maybe do well enough to increase their chances in the 2nd and 3rd round. Of course, D and I are EXTREMELY interested in looking at play makers who can contribute to our favorite teams (mine, the Redskins and his the Cowboys).
We are going to have some fun! Live coverage of the Combine starts Saturday Feb. 25th. We will be watching Combine coverage and sharing with you our thoughts! In addition to blog posts, catch us on Twitter (@he_shesaidfball).
Last week, HE SAID She SaidFOOTBALL began to take a look at this year’s Heisman hopefuls not named Luck. We started it off with Clemson sophomore QB Tajh Boyd, who tonight leads his team against ACC foe Georgia Tech.
This week, we want to highlight Houston Sr. QB Case Keenum. In Keenum’s most recent performance, he led the Cougars in a 73-34 victory over Rice. “Led” is actually a complete fabrication and understatement. Keenum went on to throw for 534 yards and 9 TDs! He also broke the record for TD passes in college football with 139 career touchdowns, adding to the record he broke last week for total offense in a college career. Though he has a stellar career which has spanned over 6 years due to a horrific knee injury early last season, Keenum is considered a longshot for the Heisman. ESPN has him #7 on their experts poll. Houston is currently undefeated and has done so in convincing fashion. They have outscored their opponents 418-198, and with 4 games left, they have a good chance of finishing the season undefeated. Even with that, the Cougars will not be given any serious consideration for a National Championship. Also, because Keenum doesn’t face to any real competition in Conference USA, he may not receive the votes needed to win the Heisman. However,Case Keenum should receive notice from some of the voters, and even more important, NFL scouts. He may not be a household name now, but let’s see how things play out for Case.
Trick or Treat? That’s how I feel about the Miami Hurricanes. Today they had a Thursday night game on the schedule against UVA. We already had plans to check out a local performing artist (who we didn’t enjoy this week by the way) at the Socci Restaurant inside of the Arlington Renaissance Capital View Hotel in Crystal City VA. We went a few weeks ago and checked out another band that was OUTSTANDING! The place is GORGEOUS and the happy hour is great! Two large plasma TVs sit at the end of each bar. One TV with the pre game coverage of the World Series on Fox and the other had pre game coverage of both the World Series and the Miami vs UVA game on ESPN. Continue reading
I know exactly what you are thinking: who is THAT kid? Well #40 is my bestie’s son and today was his team’s Homecoming. He plays for the Spirit of Faith Warriors. Watching a kid like Amon play is really exciting. He captures the essence of football for me. At his young age, he has a passion for the game. In fact, the boy suits up and runs plays in his room. He is able to have competent sports talk with adults at the age of 11. He reads sports articles and watches ESPN, but he is also a scholar at school with EXCELLENT grades. I’m very proud of him!

HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL Week 2
Burgers on the grill is how we kicked off Week 2 of NFL games on a crisp early fall day in Washington, DC. Kudos to the NFL network and ESPN for starting game day coverage even earlier this year. It’s fantastic! I fully expected my Redskins to go 2-0 heading into Dallas and they did not disappoint…well sort of. They should have blown OUT the Cards but due to mistakes, they let them hang around the whole game. Still..a win is a win and now WE WANT DALLAS!
I continue to be impressed with Cam Newton! He certainly has that star quality! He still needs to learn personnel on the field though…Charles Woodson is pretty good. I think he must have forgotten.
As a Cowboy fan coming off another loss at the mistake prone hands of Tony Romo, it wasn’t a good week for me. I heard it from everybody and everywhere: people on Twitter, Facebook, co-workers, employees, customers!! I even see my boss’s boss and the first thing he says to me was, “Hey Daryle, HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS!”. Then he sends me a work related email using the tagline, HTTR. Since I wear my Cowboy colors proudly, I take it, but I also give it. I even got into a friendly twitter battle yesterday with a fellow blogger @Sports_R_Me_MP3, who loves his Niners, who happened to be playing my ‘Boys. Now before I get to the game, I ripped Romo last week for giving away another game. I wiped my hands of the QB. But yesterday, after being knocked out of the game with fractured ribs, Romo toughed it out to lead the ‘Boys back in an OT victory, after being down going into the 4th quarter. Romo is in no way off my Hit List, but he showed me and a lot of fans what he is actually capable of doing Continue reading
