Conner Vernon: I'm not like Wes Welker or Eric Decker
2013-04-23

How can a single player be compared to Denver Broncos wide receivers Wes Welker and Eric Decker when their skill sets aren't exactly similar? Conner Vernon says it's all about complexion.

"It's funny how, nowadays, you're just comparing race to race here," the Duke wide receiver told USA Today's Mike Garafolo. "Aside from my skin color, I don't see where they got that assumption."
Welker is a 5-foot-9, 185-pound slot receiver. Decker stands 6-3, 218 pounds and is a physical option on the outside. Vernon splits the difference at 6-0,196 pounds. He's not as big as Decker, but doesn't have Welker's quickness.

This isn't a first. The quarterback position has gone through this for years.

Vernon finished his career as the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards. He'd love to be compared to Welker and Decker because of the numbers he puts up as player. Right now, Vernon just doesn't see it.

Culliver indicated that a gay player would not be welcome on the 49ers
2013-01-31

Culliver, 24, said Thursday that's "not what's in my heart" and he was "just kidding around."

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver apologized Thursday for anti-gay comments he made to a comedian Artie Lange during Super Bowl media day.

He also apologized to the city of San Francisco and added he would welcome a gay teammate to the 49ers, a reversal of his remarks to Lange two days ago. San Francisco and the Bay Area are home to a large gay community.

"Gotta come out 10 years after that," Culliver said.




McNabb returns to Philly to take on Vick
2010-10-02

Kickoff: Sunday, 4:15 p.m. EDT

Sportsbook.com Betting Odds: Philadelphia -6, Total: 43

Sure, this is a pretty significant early season NFC East match-up. However the real story here is Donovan McNabb’s return to the City of Brotherly love in addition to the resurgence of Philly’s new starting QB, Michael Vick.

Donovan McNabb faces his former team for the first time, while the Eagles are flying high under Michael Vick (750 pass yds, 7 total TD, 0 INT). Vick should continue to thrive against a Washington pass defense that ranks second-to-last in the league this year (326 YPG). Philly’s aggressive pass rush will have McNabb (833 pass yds, 2 TD, 1 INT this year) in the crosshairs against an injury-plagued Washington o-line.

Washington’s injuries extend elsewhere too. Clinton Portis has a bad wrist, but he will play Sunday. Portis has gained 873 total yards with eight touchdowns in 10 career games against the Eagles. The ’Skins also have special teams issues. Punter Josh Bidwell went down during warm-ups last week, and kicker Graham Gano punted four times with a miserable 24.0 net average.

Philadelphia has no significant injuries to report. TE Brent Celek has a bruised wrist, but he will not be affected much, if any, by the ailment. All the focus has been on Vick’s arm this year, but he has also rushed for 170 yards. The Eagles rank seventh in the NFL with 417 rushing yards, and LeSean McCoy has 209 of those yards on a whopping 6.1 yards-per-carry average. McCoy gained 168 total yards in two games against Washington last season.

The Eagles are 24-12 against the Redskins since 1992, but the teams have been more evenly matched recently with Philly holding a 5-3 edge SU and Washington with the upper hand ATS (4-3-1) in the past eight meetings. This NFL betting trend favors Washington:

Play On - Underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points (WASHINGTON) - an average offensive team (18 to 23 PPG) against an excellent offensive team (>=27 PPG), after a loss by 14 or more points. (28-8 since 1983.) (77.8%, +19.2 units. Rating = 2*).

While those that plan on betting the ‘total’ should consider the following:

PHILADELPHIA is 26-8 UNDER (+17.2 Units) in home games in October games since 1992. The average score was PHILADELPHIA 20.6, OPPONENT 14.7 - (Rating = 2*).
