QB Revolving Door: A Receiver’s POV #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

Anthony Armstrong   November 18th, 2019    0
By Anthony Armstrong Every NFL season there are some significant roster moves that can affect the team’s ability to be successful - especially when the moves involve the quarterback position. It’s no secret that there is a direct correlation to the success of a team and the performance of the quarterback. In this 2017 piece, eight teams had the same quarterback for at least 10 seasons. Over that decade, those teams had more playoff wins than the rest of the…

When It Is Time To Let The NFL Go, The NFL Will Surely Let You Know #StoryTimeWithDJMoore

By DJ Moore I had just been released by the Carolina Panthers and had no team to play for. I called my agent about what my next step would be. He told me to sit tight, and he would make some calls. I was both nervous and excited about the opportunity to continue playing football. He finally called me and said, “I have a workout scheduled with the Detroit Lions.” I had never gone through that process and did not know what to expect. I packed a couple of things, kissed my wife and kids, and headed off to the airport. I arrived at the team facility, greeted by a …

Roy Williams Outfit #StoryTimeWithEarl

By Earl Bennett Fashion has always been a part of the NFL. Joe Namath with the fur coat to Deion Sanders with the gold chains and sweet pregame outfits. Now, players like Odell Beckham and DeAndre Hopkins are keeping the tradition going. Though some players can pull certain looks off, there are some who should stay away.   In 2011, we signed Roy Williams to the team. The Odessa product never failed to provide laughter whether it was intentional or not. Roy’s jokes or his unserious nature were constant — his outfits followed suit. Roy never tried to impress with his clothes. Whether it was his old school jeans or …

The One Man Gang #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong Finding your way in the league is not easy.  Coming in as an undrafted player makes it that much more difficult to find a “home.”  During training camp for the Odessa Roughnecks of the Intense Football League, I became the holder for extra points and field goals on accident.  There were two kicking units and only one holder, so I volunteered. The starter got injured, so I took over the duties. Doing what it takes to make the team was something I was used to.   During my time in Washington, I had the pleasure of playing alongside the epitome of this very ideology.  Whatever coach needed, …

Marshall Hide-N-Go-Seek ATL #StoryTimeWithEarl

By Earl Bennett After my 2007 season at Vanderbilt, I decided to forgo my senior year and enter the 2008 NFL Draft. After consulting with various draft analysts and experts, I concluded it was the right time for me to take my talents to the next level. I hired Bus Cook as my agent and we began to discuss training options for the combine. As I prepared for the next phase in life, Bus thought it would be a great idea to train with Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall in Atlanta. Since the Broncos were expected to draft a wide receiver, he thought it might be a good look. So, …

When your Head Coach is a “Dead Man Walking” #StoryTimeWithDJMoore

By DJ Moore It’s an eerie feeling being on a team when you know your coaches’ jobs are on the line. At the start of the 2012 season, we were very optimistic. We had finished a great training camp, and the defense looked good as usual. We came out of the gate immediately beating the Colts. Then we lost to Green Bay, as we often did during the time I was in Chicago. From there, we went on a six-game winning streak. Every year it seemed we started hot and then something went wrong and we ended up 9-7 to miss the playoffs. The coaches needed to do better because …

Jason Taylor: Miami’s Santa Claus #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong People often ask if I miss playing ball.  My answer is always the same. “Playing, yes.  The business side of it, not so much.” One of the biggest things I do miss is the camaraderie inside the locker room…and the crazy situations that can play out there.   My first “real” NFL locker room was with the Dolphins in ‘08.  The team had big names, big personalities, and plenty of roster moves.  Guys would come in for two weeks and then be let go for another Band-Aid until the problem was fixed.   Promo Code “Prostyle Podcast” Of all the guys at the Dolphins facility, one guy …

A Broken Thumb, A Ruined Season #StoryTimeWithEarl

By Earl Bennett Johnny Knox had world class speed. We often joked about his leg circumference and how small they were, yet he could outrun just about all of us. On the field, he was a crisp route runner using head nods and intermitting speeds to throw defensive backs off. But, Johnny had one Achilles heel, it was running a slant in cover 2 man. Green Bay always knew that if they ran cover 2 man on us, it would give us problems. Other teams took heed and started to do the same. You slow up the speedy receivers in Devin and Johnny and force them to run out routes …
