Roger Goodell channels Sergeant Schultz

Roger Goodell claims he didn’t see the Ray Rice video where he punches and knocks out his fiancee Janay Palmer (now Janay Rice). I guess I believe him, as there’s no way anyone would suspend that jackass for only two games after seeing this video.

What’s clear is that Goodell didn’t want to see it. Goodell employed the Sergeant Schultz strategy of closing his eyes to an obvious problem. Anyone with a brain would know that if Ms. Palmer was knocked out in the elevator, any footage of the event would be toxic and would require real punishment.

This mess overshadows some good things Goodell is about to do with the revision of the NFL’s marijuana policy, the implementation of HGH testing and (hopefully) ending the suspensions of Josh Gordon and Wes Welker who were punished under idiotic rules.

That stuff won’t get much attention now, as the footage of Rice’s brutal punch across the jaw of Palmer will be played over and over again, rightfully condemning Goodell and the NFL for the pitiful response to this shameful incident.

Seattle dominates Green Bay

The first game of the 2014 season is coming to an end, and it still looks like the 2013 season.

Seattle still tackles well, and the Packers still suck at tackling. And while Aaron Rodgers is still very good at playing quarterback, he can’t beat the Seahawks by himself.

I know the Packers won a Super Bowl with Dom Capers running the defense, but that unit has been a disaster ever since.

Meanwhile, with a healthy Percy Harvin, the Seattle offense is even tougher to stop, as Russell Wilson continues to do a good job distributing the ball to his playmakers.

It will be hard to bet against them at home.

Jadeveon Clowney unveils beast mode

Look who’s ready to wreak havoc on NFL offenses. Jadeveon Clowney is a beast and these two plays give a glimpse of the damage he can do. Pairing him up with JJ Watt gives the Texans some serious weapons on defense. Now, if they can just get a real quarterback . . .

Today, Braun unveiled its new branding campaign with the NFL and Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl champion quarterback, Russell Wilson.

The campaign, titled #FaceGreatness with Braun Confidence, was developed to encourage men to be confident, to chase their dreams, and to never give up on their quest to achieve greatness.

After leading the Seattle Seahawks to an impressive win in Super Bowl XLVIII, Russell Wilson is ready for another NFL season and wants men to know that achieving life-long dreams requires preparation and confidence.

Scores Report Interview with Carolina Panthers Luke Kuechly

Luke-Kuechly-Old-Spice

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly is the kind of impact player that NFL teams envision when they select a player in the top ten of the NFL Draft. Selected ninth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, he was named Defensive Rookie of the Year that season and NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2013.

What can he do for an encore in year three? Kuechly’s eyes are set on the Super Bowl. Kuechly’s old-school physical style and “Smelf-confidence” lends itself perfectly to a partnership with old-school icon Old Spice.

At every level you’ve played, you’ve been a tackling machine. How do you account for this? What do you do differently than other players?

“I’ve always had a great group of guys around me. At Boston College, Bill McGovern (former DC) did a great job and he is the reason why I developed in college. And when I got to Carolina, I had some older guys around like Jon Beason [and] Thomas Davis that taught me a lot, and I learned what it takes to be successful. So I owe a lot to those guys for the success I’m having today.”

Who was your favorite player growing up?

“Ray Lewis or Brian Urlacher. Those guys played hard and played a long time at a very high level.”

How do you feel about the Urlacher comparisons?

“I think you’ve got to look at how long Brian played, how high a level, the Pro Bowls, he’s been to a Super Bowl; I think that’s the most important thing. I’ve played two years and that’s it. It’s cool to look at it now, but I have to keep looking forward, keep working.”

Who would win an arm wrestling contest between you and Urlacher?

“Oh, man I’m sure he would. He is a big dude. “

Talk about the partnership with Old Spice.

“I partnered up with them to talk about the hair product that came out earlier this year. There’s shampoos, conditioners, different gels. The biggest thing behind them is the simplicity to use the product. You can use it real quick and don’t have to take a whole lot of time. We use it quite a bit in the locker room. I passed it out to some of the linebackers and everybody is loving it right now.”
