DeSean Jackson FAQ: What the Eagles Were Thinking and Where We Go From Here - Bill Barnwell
I mean, I used to have a reference to Stone Temple Pilots in my AOL screen name in the mid-’90s and I’m sure I’ve thrown up the Roc a few hundred times, but I’m not in the Illuminati and I’m not about to go take out Chester Bennington, either, you know?

The Action Hero Championship Belt - Bill Simmons (non-football)
The action-hero equivalent of Barry Sanders retiring in 1999, then returning to the 2011 Lions and rushing for 2,500 yards. And actually, that’s an understatement.

Ranking The Almost Dynasties - Chase Stuart
Today, I estimate the chances that different teams had of becoming the Team of the Decade (the TOD) for the ’70s, ’80, ’90s, and ’00s. Some of the results are surprising. One of the teams that became the TOD was actually much less likely than another to dominate that decade. Only two of the four teams truly stand out as being clearly the single most-likely team to be the TOD.

I've used his vertical and 40 yard dash from his pro day.
