Is the NFC East the NFL’s worst division?

There’s really no doubt this year that the NFC East is football’s worst division.  Lacking any real contention power at the top, the division speaks mediocrity top to bottom.  In one sense it’s a “toss-up” in that no one team is good enough to seize control and front run. But there’s just enough ability spread around that no one at the bottom is likely to make a run at a top 3 pick. Sleep your way through this season in the East. There’s some sentiment that the Dallas Cowboys mulligan their way to a division title since the loss...

OSU National Champ + Jags Michael Bennett Joins the Show

OSU’s — excuse me — THE Ohio State University’s DT Michael Bennett was drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Bennett joined the ladies of Helmets and Heels live at Whiskey Jax alongside THE Jax Buckeyes Club to talk football life on and off the field. During his first year in the NFL, Bennett started and played in 13 games on a Jaguars team struggling to take that next step. But in the offseason, the Jaguars had arguably one of the best offseasons in NFL history with the additions of Malik Jackson, Jalen...

How to create stadium seating in your home

For sports fans who prefer a slightly different take on furniture, try out this DIY collectible stadium seats frame designed for the home.

And because the city of Jacksonville owns EverBank Field, the city government strangely decided to trash the removed seats instead of donating or offering them up for sale to interested buyers. However, knowing someone “on the inside,” I was able to rescue a few seats before they were shipped off to a local landfill. Flash...

Football events for women are fun…when they’re done right

Texas A&M made a lot of people angry over the weekend when slideshow pictures were released from their “Chalk Talk for Women” event. The football terms used in the slideshow were correct in theory, but as with many things in life, context and tone are key. And this particular presentation in front of 700 women was filled with sexist remarks and wreaked of sexual innuendos only a 3rd grader would find funny. While it’s a bad look for Texas A&M, they aren’t the only organization holding events like this.  A simple Google search results in numerous schools from all...

Politics have always been in sports but athletes should do more

When asked during his playing days if he would comment on social and political issues, Michael Jordan famously said “republicans buy shoes too.” While Jordan is arguably one of the biggest athletes in US history, he’s always been relatively silent when it comes to giving his opinion on current topics. But sports now generate more money than ever and athletes like Serena Williams and LeBron James aren’t afraid of losing sponsors for standing up for causes they believe in. And that’s how it should be. During Tuesday’s live show, Helmets and Heels polled listeners on if they prefer to...
