Leonard Fournette ran a 4.51 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine

Former LSU running back Leonard Fournette ran a speedy 4.51, 40-yard dash at the NFL draft combine on Friday. He ran a 4.52 on his second attempt.

The 240-pound projected first-round pick was about as quick as we thought he’d be despite weighing in a bit heavier than anticipated.

Here it is again, from another angle.


The best part is Pat Connaughton standing there under the net, watching helplessly as the ball makes its way through the hoop to the floor, following it with his head.

It’s been a big week for full-court plays. Northwestern’s full court pass and buzzer beater is something we’ll remember for a long time.

Jared Sullinger: Phoenix waived Sullinger after getting him back as part of the P.J. Tucker deal. Obviously, the five-year veteran was just a fill-in for that deal, and there’s a good chance he’ll end up somewhere else. Sullinger proved he could score the basketball in Boston, but his career 27 percent three-point shooting might limit his usefulness for contending teams.

Mike Scott: Another player who briefly ended up with the Suns before being waived, Scott may be out of the league this year. However, if anyone wants to take a chance on the 28-year-old power forward who shot 29 percent from the field this season, he’s available.

As the Premier League became the hashtag Eee Pee Ell, Shearer became Shearer: surprise title-winner; serial snubber of Manchester United; and ultimately record-setter. The Sky Sportsification of English footballing history is annoying and at times vaguely sinister. But Shearer, despite his pleasantly old-fashioned playing style, is iconic not just of Blackburn and Newcastle but of the Premier League Years, and it’s futile to pretend otherwise.12

Vincent Jackson plans to play through fractured wrist, fantasy value holds steady

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has a small fracture in his wrist, according to FOX Sports. He plans on playing through it and is not expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Rex Ryan some how alternates being skinny and fat each quater.

In the latest 80s SNL State-Farm commercal, Bill Parcells makes his acting debut as the body double for “It’s Pat.”

Saints verse Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Between Sean Payton and Rob Ryan youve got coaches who were to competent for Jerry Jones to trust running his franchise making their triumphant return to Dallas. You have to imagine that Rob is literaly going to urinate on the midfield star during warmups and then Drew Brees will throw for 700 yds and 6 TDs to 5 diffrent receivers.

By the way what is Jerry Jones waiting for to activate Michael Sam? Theres no chance that his defense would be any worse then it is currently its just not mathmaticaly possible. In a week that is despereate for good storylines to be spoonfed to the liberal PC media this would be a welcome distracton, not that I care one way or the other about Michael Sam. Because I dont care and I wish that people would stop writing about him except for me when I’m telling everyone how little I care.

However- Woodheads lucky to have a guardian angel looking over him: Little did Danny know that the entire reason his teammate Phillip Rivers was squirting out all those kids was because he was growing a literal farm of tiny replacement bodyparts for Woodhead in the event of injury. Its too bad for Rivers son that hes going to lose a limb but he knew that was part of the deal all along.11
