Football Betting News – Bears Offense Show Big Potential...

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was a bit banged up and bruised days after battling it out with the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. As hurt as he was, Cutler got some relief from the early advantage brought about by the Bears’ fresh offense. The Chicago Bears are now 3-0 and the only unbeaten team in the NFC, with its offense providing its share of highlights under new coordinator Mike Martz. “We’re growing, we’re still young, we’re still pretty young in this offense,” Cutler said.  “I think Mike is still trying to figure out exactly where we’re at, what he can call in certain situations, what we can handle on a week to week basis as far as game-planning wise, what we can handle during the game, what he can go do, what doesn’t really work for us.  So, like everyone is still kind of growing and gelling together.” Even Martz isn’t sure how good the Bears’ offense can be. “I really don’t know, and that’s the fun part of this,” he said.  “There’s enough talent here, and it’s exciting because each week we continue to get better.” The Bears seem to have no difficulty getting the big plays, with 12 completions for 20 or more yards tying them for fifth in that category.  But when they needed a yard on fourth down at the goal line, like what happened against Green Bay or in the opener against...

Diet And Nutrition Tips For Basketball Players...

As a basketball player, I always wondered how vital of a role food and nutrition had in my playing ability. During a camp one summer there was a nutrition specialist there and I asked him this question, “does it really matter what we eat before a game?” All I can say is that he laughed for a bit and then compared our bodies to cars and the fuel that we put into them. If we put junk in our cars they don’t drive well and the same is true of our bodies. I took what he said very seriously and will never forget the recommendations he gave us. This article will summarize his advice and will serve as a guide for basketball players looking to improve their playing ability simply by being smart about what they eat and drink. When I was growing up Gatorade wasn’t nearly as popular as it is today. If you got Gatorade you were considered lucky. Today we have so many choices of products to keep us hydrated it is amazing. From Propel to energy drinks to regular water. I don’t and won’t ever recommend an energy drink as something to take immediately before a sporting event. I don’t think it is healthy and I don’t think we have enough study materials to prove if it is safe or not. The caffeine and sugars that are typically in those drinks creates a quick fix...

Football – The Oakland Raiders...

One of the most colorful franchises in all of professional football is without a doubt the Oakland Raiders. Based out of Oakland, CA, the Raiders are yet another original AFL member that came into the NFL during the merger in 1970. As a member of the AFC West, the Raiders have been to 5 Super Bowls, winning 3 of them. Let’s take a closer look at the history of the Oakland Raiders. Al Davis has owned the Raiders since 1972. Originally founded in Oakland, the team played there until Davis moved them to Los Angeles in 1982. Later, the team moved back to Oakland in 1995 and remains there to this day. The football team has had the colors of silver and black since Davis was general manager of the team in 1963. He used these colors originally because all TV’s were available in black and white only and these colors showed up better than others. John Madden became the head coach of the Raiders in 1969. He later guided the team to its first ever Super Bowl win in 1976. Madden stayed on as coach of the football team until 1979 when he left the team and the league, to go into TV broadcasting. In 1982, Davis moved the team to Los Angeles, due in part to the refusal of the city of Oakland to remodel the football stadium. In their first year in Los Angeles, the team...
