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 …

Nothing Like Laughing When You Losing #StoryTimeWithDJMoore

By DJ Moore We had just lost a couple of games in a row.  Practice after weeks of losing always carried a severe sentiment.  Game day finally arrived after a week of hard practices. I arrived at my game-day locker, where I daydreamed about my performance. You would have been hard-pressed to find a smile in the place. Everyone seemed to be on edge about getting off the losing streak. Coaches started to emerge from the back of the locker room. This typically meant the game was soon to begin. The final coach who emerged, as always, was Lovie Smith. He had his standard game day steel-face look.   His …

The Side of Joey Porter You Didn’t See #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong My first league experience was with the Dolphins in ’08. Bill Parcels and about half of the Cowboys staff made their way to sunny South Florida. A lot of vets came on board. I played Madden often, so I was hyped to share the field with names I recognized like Vernon Carey, Will Allen, Akin Ayodele, Jason Taylor and Ronnie Brown.   The highlight of it all was getting to know Joey Porter. We were actually locker neighbors. All I knew about JP was how loud his was, and he known for getting after quarterbacks. I didn’t rush to judgement, but assumed he would have an attitude …
