    Hard-luck Vikings Finally Win Big

    (Randall Cunningham photo courtesy of the Minnesota Vikings) (Randy Moss photo courtesy of the New England Patriots)   Talk of Fame Network The Minnesota Vikings could never win when they reached a Super Bowl – but they found a way to win when they don’t get there. In this week’s poll, the Talk of Fame Network asked our listeners and readers to vote on the greatest team never to reach a Super Bowl and provided four options: the 1967 Cowboys, […]

    State Your Case: Duke Slater

    (Photo courtesy of Pro Football Hall of Fame) by Ron Borges Talk of Fame Network The Pro Football Hall of Fame is deservedly a place for firsts and finest. If you agree, one has to wonder why Duke Slater wasn’t enshrined in Canton long ago. Duke who, you ask? Therein lies the problem of being relegated to the dusty pages of long-forgotten history. Duke Slater was arguably the finest African-American football player of the first half of the 20th Century […]

    Moon: Put McNabb in the Hall

    (Photo courtesy of the Philadelphia Eagles) Talk of Fame Network It’s a question we often ask guests on the Talk of Fame Network: If you had a free pass to give someone not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame who would it be? Sometimes it provokes unexpected answers, and sometimes it doesn’t. And with Hall-of-Fame quarterback Warren Moon, it produced a response that, frankly, no one anticipated. “I would say Donovan McNabb,” Moon said on our recent broadcast. “I […]

    “Weight” of expectations felt every time Warren Moon took the field

    Talk of Fame Network   He’s in the Pro Football Hall of Fame now, but there was a time when quarterback Warren Moon couldn’t get into an NFL huddle. That was back in 1978 when Moon went undrafted out of the University of Washington, signed with the CFL and led the Edmonton Eskimos to five straight Grey Cups. His success there led to interest from the NFL, with Houston … and Moon … winning out when he signed with the […]

    Pereira: Don’t look for immediate change in pass-interference rules

    Talk of Fame Network The NFL is talking about making defensive pass interference a maximum 15-yard penalty, and the idea not only has the support of Mike Pereira, the league’s former supervisor of officiating; he would’ve been made it years ago. But while Pereira, now the officiating analyst on Fox, is “encouraged” by talk of a change and thinks one is overdue, he doesn’t see one happening. Not yet anyway. “I just don’t think they’re (the league office) ready to […]

All 12 of your draft picks weren’t expected to make your roster back in the 1980s, so a team could take a flyer on a deep snapper or a backup quarterback or a kicker. But when you only have […]

Our listeners and readers backed the Redskins with 59.1% of the vote to the Patriots’ 23.6% despite the fact New England was 18-0 and gunning for immortality when it lost the Super Bowl to the New York Giants, 17-14, when it took […]

    (Photos courtesy of the Minnesota Vikings) By Rick Gosselin Talk of Fame Network There was a three-year window in the 1990s when Terrell Davis was the best back in the NFL. Davis began his NFL career with four consecutive 1,000 yards seasons and got better with each year, rushing for 1,117 yards as a rookie in 1995, 1,538 yards in 1996, 1,750 in 1997 and finally winning his first NFL rushing title with 2,008 yards in 1998.

    (Photos courtesy of the Green Bay Packers) Talk of Fame Network It’s a logical question. Ron Wolf was such a superb judge of talent he was elected to the Hall of Fame. But it’s also a loaded question. As general manager of the Green Bay Packers, Wolf swung the deal that delivered Brett Favre to the Packers – a move that changed the face of the franchise. So now the question: You have three quarterbacks on the board but can […]
