No scoops for you: NFL team media policy has many restrictions

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Don’t expect to hear or read anything about dropped passes or interceptions that take place during Buffalo Bills practices. Mentioning what might be said during a post-practice team huddle is also out. And forget about learning who opened practice at quarterback, or any other position for that matter. Those are among the items the Bills are restricting from being mentioned as part of their wide-ranging media policy unveiled Tuesday, when reporters began arriving for the team’s first week of voluntary…

Super Busts: The best teams to not win the Super Bowl

in Sports/Top Headlines by

They had the stars, the swagger and the sparkling record to prove it. Then, poof, it was gone. No Super Bowl ring, no parade, no trip to the White House. Nothing but a long offseason — or a lifetime in some cases — of what might have been. Cam Newton and the rest of his “Dabbin’” dancing, selfie-with-the-clock-still-running Carolina Panthers will try to avoid the same fate the 2007 Patriots or the 1968 Colt, teams whose seemingly inevitable coronation instead…
