Over at The National Football Post, our old friend Matt Bowen breaks down why rookie wide receivers struggle in the NFL and identifies a group of young receivers that need to take the next step this year. A pair of Redskins make the list...shocker. (National Football Post)
The Miami Dolphins' stadium will be named Landshark Stadium--for 2009 only. This is as part of a deal with Jimmy Buffett (who I like less than Rachel Nichols). I will say this though--it is a cool name for a stadium and actually ties in the team and mascot and area all in one. In classic corporate fashion, the cool name will last only briefly. Another drawback? Buffett wrote a song for Dolphins fans that they will hear probably 20 zillion times this season. Might make them long for the days of "Who Let the Dogs Out?" (CNNSI)
