Sam Mellinger: The film lies: why nobody defends the Chiefs the way they defend normal teams
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Football people love the film.Ask a coach a question after a game and he will tell you he’s gotta watch the film. Ask a player a question about the upcoming opponent and he will tell you what he sees on film.Eric Bieniemy, the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator, talks constantly of putting consistent behavior on film. When players talk about their performance, it’s often in terms of putting their resume on film.The film don’t lie, they say, but what about when it does?What about when it’s a bald faced, hypocritical, can’t-trust-it-further-than-you-can-throw-it lying liar?Like it ...

Dave Hyde: He guarded Don Shula, married Jimmy Johnson and has 34 years of Dolphins stories from behind the curtain

Scott Fowler: 83-year-old Charlotte man shot a 69 over 18 holes. Has he figured out golf's secrets?
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Unless you’ve met him on a golf course, you’ve probably never heard of David Fairley.And even if you did, Fairley probably didn’t make much of an impression at first.Fairley is 83 years old. He is 5-foot-8. He weighs 148 pounds, which is exactly what he weighed in 10th grade.It would only be after you saw Fairley play a little while that you would realize that he has nearly perfected golf — or at least amateur golf played from the senior tees.

Ex-Eagle Nelson Agholor has found success and happiness far from the harsh spotlight of Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA — There were no tears shed by Eagles fans in March when wide receiver Nelson Agholor signed with the Las Vegas Raiders.Despite the valuable contribution he made to the Eagles’ 2017 Super Bowl effort — 62 receptions, including a team-high 22 third-down catches, and nine catches for 84 yards against the Patriots in Super Bowl LII — Agholor was viewed largely as a first-round disappointment (No. 20 overall in 2015) who had two good years out of five in Philly, who was paid $9 million last year and had three touchdown catches, who dropped too many passes, and who, during one bout of s...
