Football is a violent game and always will be, but that does not mean steps should not be taken to lower the risk of injury.
Thomas, Wagner and Hillman are distinctly individual guys. However, none of them exhibit the thoughtless, carefree immaturity usually associated with American males in their 20s.
According to the NFL, "Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size."
The Seattle Seahawks -- already with one of the most dominant offenses in the NFL -- arguably just became the most complete, as well, by acquiring speed demon Percy Harvin from Minnesota.
Being a die-hard fan is almost masochistic. But that won't stop you next year from starting this process all over again.
Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson pulled off the greatest playoff comeback since 1957 ... and lost.
The Falcons' defensive priority is going to have to be shutting down the Seahawks' read-option plays. The Seahawks' offense is normally a fairly good unit with some very good pieces, but is nearly unstoppable when able to successfully sprinkle in a spattering of zone reads.
As a sleep researcher who focuses on how sleep affects elite athlete, I have studied the effects of travel and disrupted sleep on athletes for many years. The combination of cross-country travel and athletic performance is not pretty. Travel and circadian timing matter.

With a bye week in the Wild Card round and no real surprises to-date in the playoffs, the Denver Broncos are our favorites to win the Super Bowl, making the Super Bowl 50.2 percent of the time and bringing home the title 28.2 percent of the time.
People value professional athletes based off of winning and their respect for the game that gets them paid. Robert Griffin III has shown his understanding of that, whereas Royce White has simply looked like an immature kid in a grown man's world.
Wilson, a dark horse for Rookie of the Year, controlled the tempo with mostly sound decisions through the air and another 67 yards on the ground, showing that the read-option duo of him and Pro Bowl running back Marshawn Lynch is as good as advertised. Lynch, for the 11th time this season, topped the 100-yard mark, including a fantastic go-ahead 27-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter
The Redskins' offense has been a powerhouse at times this season, but the unit opens the playoffs against the defense perhaps best suited to stop it. And the Redskins' defense is at its worst when defending against the type of things the Seahawks are capable of doing best.
If you've never seen a Lytro picture before, you're in for a treat! Lytro pictures are interactive photos built for the web.
The Jets are a team that has no leadership at QB or at head coach, has no running game and is so downright dysfunctional they make the Sopranos look like the Swiss Family Robinson.
Republicans' reaction to last week's Monday Night Football debacle was record-breaking given their decades of hating on union workers.
