Look in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Carolina Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen’s hype crashing back down to Earth.

Cam Newton had a front row seat to the carnage that ensued on Sunday as the San Francisco … Continue reading Time to pipe down on Panthers QB Kyle Allen replacing Cam Newton talk
by Jordy McElroy The New England Patriots needed Josh Gordon until they didn’t. That’s the moment the former All-Pro wideout learned the Patriot Way wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows—a perpetuating narrative given life through the popped champagne bottles, confetti parades and Lombardi Trophies.
