Video: Chris Kirksey just 14 inches tall in Madden ’15 glitch

In EA Sports’ new release, rookie linebacker Chris Kirksey (which he now prefers to be called instead of Christian) showed up on the Tennessee Titans and inexplicably was just 14 inches tall. Kirksey is listed at 6-foot-2 (and not 1-foot-2) and is a card-carrying, pass-covering member of...

LaRon Byrd likes one-handed catches

LaRon Byrd was cut by the Dallas Cowboys and claimed by the Cleveland Browns. So what’s the big deal about a 25-year-old who went undrafted from the University of Miami in 2012? Maybe nothing. Then again, Byrd is big at 6-foot-4 and he has speed. He also has a propensity to work with the JUGS machine catching the ball one-handed. Contrast that with Greg Little having to work extra...

NFL Backup QB Barometer: Is Johnn Manziel the first backup to claim the starters job?

While it doesn’t warrant the fanfare that a ‘closer’s hot seat’ post would on the dawn of the fantasy football season, the Quarterback battles have now wrapped up for the summer and each team has determined their Week 1 starter. They won’t all be the man under Center in Week 17 though, and owners in deeper leagues would be wise to keep an eye on the players above, perhaps...
