Let Me Holla @You: @ChrisJohnson28

31 Oct

Johnson rushed for 34 yards on 14 carries in the Titans 27-10 win over the Colts Sunday. Through 7 games Johnson has 302 yards on 107 carries and 1 TD.

Dear Chris Johnson,

I understand you got your money, and probably didn’t stay in shape during the lockout, but I need you to start attacking the gaps on runs… my fantasy team will thank you… as well as Titans Nation. Nobody wants to sit in LP Field and boo you… but right about now you’re giving most of us an urge for A COUPLE OF REASONS.

I’ve been a Titans fan since Eddie George, and a fan of you since ECU #GOPIRATES #classof08standup, and am cheering for you, and going to bat for you… Make us all look good.

James P
Titans Fan

Mike Vick Graces The Cover Of Uptown Magazine

28 Oct

Oct/Nov issue

Check out Mike Vick on the cover of UPTOWN Magazine’s Oct/Nov Issue.

Victory, Failure, Deliverance: The Michael Vick story has all the elements that make an American classic. With his new multi-million dollar contracts, Vick is successfully reinventing himself on and off the field. Will a Super Bowl win be his ultimate triumph?

“I never thought this day would come,” Vick said.

“[Two years ago], I was happy just to be on a team. When I was in prison, I prayed for another opportunity. And when I signed with the Eagles, that opportunity had come. I was ecstatic at that point, and I’m even happier now.”

KJ Dillon Leaps From the 5-Yard Line To Score Over Three Defenders

25 Oct

By RJP Staff

KJ Dillon has super powers, or at least it might seem that way after you watch the following play. Kimlon KJ Dillon of Apopka high in Florida, dives for the end zone from the five yard line over three West Orange High defenders… AND SCORES. I’m pretty sure that’s not how this reverse was drawn up, but it worked!

Superman Admits Contemplating Flying Out Of Orlando?

19 Oct

Esquire‘s Scott Raab sat down with Dwight Howard for a candid conversation in the magazine’s new issue, and during their talk the Magic big man inferred that he’s been thinking about leaving Orlando once his contract is up.

Check out this excerpt:

SR: Do you think the players’ union can hold it together?

DH: We’ve got to. We’ve got to stick together. I know, as much as I try to do for the game of basketball and be an ambassador for the NBA, I don’t want my money cut short. I work hard. Not just in games, but off the court, too. When the NBA asks me to do something, I’m there.

SR: You’re representing.

DH: That’s my job, to motivate people. I can do more, show people more things. That’s really why I play basketball. That’s my whole purpose of playing basketball. I was supposed to be in the NBA. I was supposed to travel the world and make the world a better place.

SR: Do you think that the drive to represent, on an iconic level, will be a factor in your free agency? Do you see yourself in a much larger market?

DH: There’s more you can do in a bigger place. I’m stuck in a tough position because I feel like right now, where I’m at, I’ve done so much. And I just don’t know what else I can do. I can’t live for everybody else. I don’t know what decision I’m gonna make as of right now. It’s been crazy. Everybody wants me to come here, come play here, come to our team, do this. It’s a great feeling, though, to be wanted.

SR: You’re gone. I can feel it.

DH: The toughest part for me is the city — the people. They’ve got burgers named after me in Orlando, they’ve got a Web site saying, “Please stay.” I love the people in the city. I’ve literally sat on the bench with a towel on my head crying, because I feel the passion in the stands. I just think about what’s going to be best for what I want to accomplish in my life. And I don’t want that door to close on me, wherever that door is. I don’t want it to close. 

SR: Just don’t do it as an hour-long ESPN special. Please.

DH: That’s not me.”
