5 Things NFL Players Can Do During The Lockout

Last week, we brought you the 30 expensive things you could buy with the estimated $12B that could be lost during the NFL lockout. With football no longer on their schedule, players must seek alternative means to pass the time and, in many cases, make a buck. Before we were internet moguls... we were career consultants! That's why we'd like to offer our services to the hundreds of pro football players who have grown tired twiddling their thumbs. As Tim Tebow or Kurt Warner can attest, idle hands are the devil's tools. See our top suggestions for things NFL players can do during the lockout after the jump!

5 Sleeper Picks That Will Be “Mad” Come March [COLLEGE BASKETBALL]

One of the great things about college basketball is with so many teams there is bound to be someone that comes up and outperforms expectations every year.

Where Will Vince Young Play Next Season? [NFL RUMORS]

If there were anyone with a more tense relationship with his coach and the fan base as Vince Young I would be surprised. Sure, Donovan McNabb's tumultuous tenure in Philly was bad, but he and Andy Reid were close. Vince, on the other hand, just can’t seem to handle the pressures involved with playing at the NFL level. While McNabb's at least lead a couple teams to championship games and a Super Bowl, Vince only has 1 Pro Bowl year under his belt and has zero playoff experience. See who we think Vince will play for next season after the jump!

College Football’s Most WTF Bowl Game Names

If you're like me you probably sit back at least once during the bowl season and think where in the hell do these guys come up with some of the names for these games? Some are ridiculous, others silly, while many are just plain stupid. While the sponsors pay big money to have the bowl named after (or presented by) them in an effort to increase awareness and recall for their product or service, more times than not it leaves a very bad taste in the consumers' mouth (we're looking at you Papa John's!). That being said, there've been some crazy names through the years that deserve recognition for their excellence or lack thereof:

The 7 Greatest American Spy Films Of All-Time

The Angelina Jolie American spy film "Salt" comes out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow (Tuesday, 12/21) so we thought we'd count down the 7 greatest American spy films of all-time.

Thankfully, Hollywood has given us plenty of great spy flicks throughout the years, so we can live vicariously. Here's the 7 best featuring red blooded patriots...

Casting The All Female A-Team [The T&A Team?]

The A-Team releases on DVD and Blu-ray today. Unfortunately, it underwhelmed at the box office and failed to meet expectations for most fans. It's another example of a Hollywood remake of a classic TV show that gets everyone super amped only to be disappointed with the end result. Why? Because for some odd reason studios seem to think they have to give the old formula a new twist. Too often it just doesn’t work. However, there's one twist that would most definitely rock: AN ALL-FEMALE A-TEAM!

NFL Teams That Need New Names (POLL)

So what’s in a name? Well, for sports teams, everything. The name is the rally cry, the identity, the face of the franchise, and the word that strikes fear in the opponent. A good name leads to a cool mascot, which leads to a source of inspiration for players and fans alike. However, there are some team names that are laughable and/or synonymous with failure and/or humiliation. These are those teams...

Celebrity WAGs Most Likely To Murder Someone

The Next Three Days came out this past weekend. The film stars Elizabeth Banks as a woman accused of murder. Her husband, played by Russell Crowe, attempts to clear her name. The thriller got us thrilled about all the crazy wives and girlfriends who could potentially murder someone, whether it be their mate, their extramarital date, or Jon and Kate Plus 8. Sure, we all get upset at our significant others once in a while and maybe we even fantasize about doin' some damage but a lil' thing called reason comes into our head and we chill the F out. We're not so sure the same would happen for these wild WAGs.

The NFL’s Worst TV Announcers, Analysts, & Sideline Reporters

Football is a beautiful game; The classic struggle of man versus man, the pop of pads hitting pads, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, and, of course, the cheerleaders and tailgating. As much as we might hate to admit it, the people networks pay to talk to us during the game are important to the whole experience. You get the right people in the booth and on the field and even the worst games can become worth watching. However, you get the wrong people in those spots and even the best games can become unbearable to watch.

Should Athletes Be Allowed To Tweet In Season?

This season, the NFL has responded negatively to athletes tweeting on the field and off. Plenty of guys break the rules (Ochocinco, T.O.) and have literally paid the price in the form of fines. In college, it's a different story. Coaches can’t fine these guys. So, what is a coach to do when players are tweeting prior to and during games? What if there are players tweeting inappropriate things during their free time?
