NFC East Predictions

What is traditionally known as the toughest division to win in football is no different this year as the NFC East contains: the defending Superbowl champion, two talented teams who have many key players in their prime all at once, and a young quarterback who has the D.C. area waiting to see what highlights he canprovide.

The writers here at Athlete’s Angle have a good idea of how the division will play Continue reading

Palmer A Perfect Fit

Quarterback Carson Palmer is introduced after being traded to the Oakland Raiders.

Carson Palmer is not just returning to the NFL but also to his native state of California. If only that was where the familiarity stops but wait there’s more. The Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson, who has credited himself with making this blockbuster deadline deal, has known Carson for a long time. Jackson recruited a young Carson Palmer to the University of Southern California. Hue Jackson coached Carson in college. Continue reading

Let’s go Climbing (air date: August 15, 2011)

This week on Athlete’s Angle with Ryan Karhut we are truly going beyond the box score as we take a closer look at a sport that doesn’t even have a box score:  climbing. Have you been paying attention to the growing popularity of this sport? What is all of the fuss anyways? Well, to help answer those questions, we called in Justin Jones, owner of Vertical Adventures in Winnipeg and an avid climber (actually, avid climber doesn’t even come close to describing Justin — this guy is a climbing superstar!). I don’t want to spoil the ending of the show, but I think Ryan and Dallas are pretty hooked on climbing and heh, if you are too by the end of the podcast, why don’t you call up Justin at Vertical Adventures and try climbing out for yourself!

Enjoy the show!

Winnipeg Roundup (air date: August 8, 2011)

The Athlete’s Angle crew gets back together to resume their regular sports-talk duties after taking the August long weekend off. And what better way to get you back into the swing of things than to give you, the loyal listener, an earful about the Winnipeg sports scene, which is alive and well to say the least. Ryan and the crew further discuss the most recent Jets news including a jersey scandal, the first-place Blue Bombers, and there may even be a Gold Eyes reference in there for your listening pleasure. Oh yeah, the NFL also got back to work a couple of weeks ago and free agency has been going crazy ever since — and well, we haven’t gotten through one show yet where the NFL didn’t get discussed so we figured why stop now.

Enjoy the show!

Mendenhall Loses Endorsement Deal Over Tweets

Last week, following the news of Osama bin Ladan’s death, Mendenhall put out some pretty interesting Tweets about the story and 9/11. Here are a few tweets from Mendenhall’s account:

“What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side…”

“We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane Continue reading

Grading The NFL Draft

1 – Carolina Panthers – Cameron Newton – QB – Auburn

The Carolina Panther Selected Cam Newton First Overall Last Thursday, As They Felt The Huge Risk Will Pay Off With Huge Rewards. Our Experts Do Not Agree.

After all the speculation the Panthers finally pulled the trigger on Cam Newton. Being a big Cam Newton fan, I think that if he truly has his head in the right state of mind, he’s going to be a big time asset for this Carolina team. They are going to let him ease presumably in, by running the football with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart a lot, and allow him to complete high percentage passes. The problem is that Cam Newton was far from the most talented player available on the board, and that’s why my grade doesn’t reflect a true number one overall quarterback talent grade.


2 – Denver Broncos – Von Miller – OLB – Texas A&M 

This is the pick that baffled me early on. The Broncos are making the switch from the 3-4 to the 4-3, and desperately wanted some new personnel. They select the best pure pass rusher in the Draft, who has played out of a 3-4 defense at Continue reading

Shocking Lawrence Taylor Interview

Here is the entire Lawrence Taylor interview on Fox News Studio B. The former NFL great pleaded guilty to soliciting an underage prostitute and receive 6 years probation for it.

He is now, and rightfully so, a registered sex offender in the U.S.A. This interview is so bizarre! Firstly, how uneducated does this guy sound? Secondly, did he say prostitution is like a box of chocolates? Pretty sure he said “You’re never sure what you’re going to get,” so what else could he possibly be referring to. I am speechless. So bizarre.

Name theory proved correct by sciencetician!

There is no way Mallet is better than me, I don't care what this so called "Name Theory" says!

After realizing the brilliance of my name theory formulated prediction that Arkansas QB Ryan Mallet will be a greater QB in the NFL than any other, simply because of the “Malletability” of his last name, I started some research on my new boy and found this.


Think of all the stupid puns that will be shoved down our throats by aging NFL announcers and color men.  Clearly I’m excluding Kornheiser here because he is free to pun with impunity and remains above reproach with the management of this site.
