There is a lot of anger going around in the NFL lately, and some of it is quite justified. Some of it, on the other hand, is just incredibly strange and uncalled for.
All news about NFL isn’t always about football, and doesn’t always have to do with the action that takes place on the field. A couple of coaches dealt with some scares over the weekend. A teammate made another feel like an outsider. And a murder from years ago finally gets a conviction.
NFL football is always looked at as a violent sport, and it is due to the hard-hitting, big-time smacks, and all around tackling. One big problem is when some coaches and/or players take it a bit too far and start getting too serious.
The Cleveland Browns may finally realize that it is time to cut ties as Brandon Weeden is not the answer. Brandon Meriweather appealed to the masses and semi-won. The Dallas Cowboys may end up traveling to London to take on the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. You never really know what will happen in the NFL day to day.

Week 2 of the 2013 NFL season brought about so many close games that fans didn’t have a clue which game to tune into so they could get the best action. Now, Week 3 has come and gone, and it was full of so many upsets that no one knew what was going on or who to believe in.
The NFL is often filled with ups, downs, and everything in between. Week 2 of the 2013 season brought about two brothers battling for the third time in their careers, a huge day for a Packer, and a scary moment for a Charger.
The Redskins organization is hopeful that rookie CB David Amerson will soon become the remedy to a secondary that last season ranked 30th in pass defense. Team officials understand that a cornerback with elite talent can easily mask the deficiencies of an inept secondary.
The Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks played a game that seriously took a toll on the teams and players, but the field they played on may have delivered the biggest blows.
