As for the question about why he got so upset, I heard a few former pro athletes discuss this on the radio and ask the same thing, basically saying that it's something that happens regularly on fields and in locker rooms, sometimes in jest, sometimes to try and tweak an opponent, and in general nobody is truly bothered by it. (Whether or not its acceptable behavior is a different argument, but lets face it an NFL field or locker room is a bit different from most other components of society) Maybe Beckham is hyper sensitive, but my thought is that he (and the Giants) was using it (as well as the bat stuff) as a hindsight excuse once he crossed the line and realized a suspension was coming. So the real question was if he's not gay, why be so bothered by it....the answer is he wasn't but was claiming it to try and get the suspension overturned, and how far would that ruse go.

There have been rumors about Beckham since he was at LSU. Whether they're true or not, who gives a crap. That players use these rumors as a way to get under his skin is sad, but obvious.

Regardless of whether or not there is any truth behind these rumors, Beckham is clearly bothered by it and allows people to easily get under his skin. The more he shows it, the more it'll happen. It's like middle school all over again. He needs to be able to keep his cool and not lash out every time or this is going to continue happening. Easier said than done, and I don't know whether or not there are any inner demons that he's fighting on top of fighting his opponents. It's really sad all around.

The refs are definitely not getting enough credit for their FIFA-esque handling of the match.

What would possess Cousins to kneel on 1st and goal with 6 seconds left and no timeouts?

Why not? A division title nobody saw coming, a QB that looks like their future, some other great young players to continue to build around.

I'd be excited if I were a Redskins fan.

Wow, a rare mistake by the Pats. Electing to kick when they won the coin toss in OT and the Jets score a TD on their first drive down the field.

I wasn't responding to your post, that was just my reaction to this Eagles season. More of a "why do the Eagles exist" sort of "why."
