The NFL is home to some of the world’s most amazing athletes. The demands of various football positions make year-round training absolutely essential, whether it’s a lineman trying to hold back more than 300 pounds or one of many wide receivers that eclipse the 20 mph mark. Professional football players constantly have to face one […]

The term “Footballer’s car” gets thrown around quite a bit in Great Britain — but considering that what the Brits call “football” is completely different than American football, it’s funny how the term applies regardless of where you are.

Those three wins have given the Colts a 3-2 record and made many forget about their worrisome season openers. Lost in all of this though, […]
