The Top 2009 Headlines from Top NFL News for Dec


Clay Matthews was considered a top prospect for the 2009 NFL Draft.

The mission of this website was to provide all the news regarding the National Football League including the latest information of the games, the players of the teams, the injuries of the games, the new policy of NFL, and so on. It was easy to stay informed. Content below is from the site's December 2009 archived pages. Re-live December 2009 through these headlines.

December 2009 offered lots of great NFL fotball games. I was checking out the schedule on the site when my Maine Boone cat decided it was a ninja warrior and leaped up on my the back of my chair, then over my head, onto the computer desk and then flipped, I swear to god, onto the floor. He som startled me that I spilled my coffee on my antique oriental rug which resulted in a string of profanities since it had just come back from my favorite carpet cleaning company in nyc. I ran to the kitchen and grabbed a bunch of paper towels to soak up the black coffee. Additional sponging and more towels followed. Fortunately My Home Carpet & Upholstery Care who had cleaned the carpet the previous month had also ScotchGuarded it, so the coffee did not soak into the fibers and stain it. I'm so glad I paid the extra fee for ScotchGuarding the rug. The company's rep had told me that Scotch Guard was the best since it repels most liquids allowing for easy removal of spills before they turn into stains. Boy was he right. A half an hour after ninja cat did its trick I was back at TopNFLNews checking out the weeks games and deciding which I wanted to watch.

NFL Moves Signal a Truce on Concussions

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 It was November 2006. A neuropathologist soon discovered extensive damage in Waters’s brain tissue. For the next three years, as similar cases came to light and the hideous effects of football brain trauma were examined in newspaper articles, television features and one heated Congressional hearing, the N.F.L. and its committee on concussions vehemently fought suggestions that their approach to the injury was at all...

NFL: Challenges await league’s first 11-0 tandem

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  Never before has the NFL had two 11-0 teams. Now those teams go for 12-0. The New Orleans Saints head to Washington and must keep winning, because Minnesota is right on their heels in the NFC at 10-1. The Indianapolis Colts, who clinched the AFC South last weekend, host the Titans, who have five successive wins after dropping their first six games. A victory would give the Saints the NFC South crown. Their dynamic...

NFL Ranks

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  1. New Orleans (11-0) Drew Brees made Pats look like seven-on-seven drill. 2. Indianapolis (11-0) Can tie Pats’ record with 21st consecutive regular-season win. 3. Minnesota (10-1) With 283rd straight game, Brett Favre surpasses “Wrong Way” Marshall. 4. San Diego (8-3) No receiving tandem as imposing as Antonio Gates-Vincent Jackson. 5. Dallas (8-3) OK, ‘Boys, let’s see you do it in December. 6....

NFL concussion policy needs teams and players’ commitment

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner put into words what has gone on in the NFL for years but remained one of its darkest secrets. While discussing a concussion that had affected his vision, Warner pondered the team’s evaluation of his condition and conceded to reporters: “Do I want to stretch the truth a little bit? Do I not want to tell them everything so I can play? Because I know I could dictate...

Steelers’ Ward may miss Browns game

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  PITTSBURGH (AP) — Wide receiver Hines Ward strained a hamstring near the end of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 27-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders and is expected to miss Thursday night’s game in Cleveland. Coach Mike Tomlin says that with a short week of preparation, Ward is “very questionable.” Ward leads the Steelers (6-6) with 72 catches and six touchdowns and is 78 yards away from his sixth...

Titans hope to start new streak to finish season

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Tennessee Titans won’t be streaking their way into the postseason. They aren’t giving up even if the playoff math is complicated at the least and improbable at best. Call it the lesson learned from 2006. That year, the Titans started out 0-5 and still had a chance at a wild-card berth on the final day if three teams lost and they won. All three teams lost that day, but the Titans...


Game reactions from NFL players

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 As the NFL season progresses, each game becomes increasingly more important, unless you’re the Indianapolis Colts and already have a playoff spot wrapped up. Many teams got much needed wins (Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins & NY Giants), while others were not so fortunate (Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings &...


United States Anti-Doping Agency teams up with NFL

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  The United States Anti-Doping Agency is teaming up with the NFL, Major League Baseball and other sports organizations to pressure the federal government to crack down on rogue companies that manufacture supplements spiked with steroids and other banned substances. USADA’s “Supplement Safety Now” campaign won’t ask Congress to repeal the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, the 1994 law...

Browns showing fighting spirit despite 1-11 record, injuries

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 BEREA, Ohio — Beaten up and beaten down, the Cleveland Browns haven’t quit. Their embattled coach isn’t surprised. Despite a 1-11 record, mounting injuries and minimal progress in coach Eric Mangini’s first season, the Browns showed some grit in Sunday’s 30-23 loss to San Diego. Down by 20 to one of the NFL’s better teams, Cleveland scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, recovered...

Four reasons why NFL defenses stink

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  I have always thought of Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham as one of those cool, leathery, old-school guys with great stories; a perpetually hoarse, gravelly voice; and tremendous passion for the game. But after railing against the sad state of defense in the NFL in a recent story by Tom Kowalski, Cunningham is starting to sound more like an angry, confused old guy in plaid slacks yelling at you...

NFL Sunday Sleepers Week 13

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  Last week, we were unable to give you a waiver-wire stud who proved to be the top scoring player in fantasy football, as we were in Week 11. Sorry. But we did give you the third-best player — Seattle running back Justin Forsett, who racked up 130 yards and two TDs on the ground — courtesy of expert Jason Cole. We also predicted Vince Young’s breakout performance. This week, we offer a few more names...

NFL London: P.T. Barnum Was Right

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 Legend has it that circus man P.T. Barnum once said “A sucker is born every minute.” The NFL has proven that saying, if not Barnum, correct. This year’s version of NFL London was New England 35 Tampa Bay 7 at Wembley Stadium before a sellout crowd of 85,254. The average ticket price for this no-contest was $114, making it more expensive than any NFL ticket save the $160 at the new stadium in Dallas...

Mosley becomes fifth Browns defender placed on injured reserve

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  BEREA, Ohio – Cleveland Browns defensive lineman C.J. Mosley is done for the season with a leg injury. Mosley got hurt in the first quarter of Sunday’s loss to San Diego. The team placed Mosley on injured reserve, the fifth Cleveland defensive player to go on IR. Browns coach Eric Mangini did not specify Mosley’s injury, but said the 26-year-old will likely have surgery. Mosley left the stadium on...

Unfavorable calls in Seattle don’t sit well with 49ers’ Singletary

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  Mike Singletary is a little miffed by the number of calls he deemed “questionable” during San Francisco’s loss at Seattle on Sunday. Enough so that the 49ers coach planned to write a letter to the league office stating his case, something he does regularly but this time it will be longer than usual. “Every week we send a letter to the league about different calls that are made or not made in...

Week 13 bests + worsts

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  – Most clutch QB: Oakland’s Bruce Gradkowski threw three fourth-quarter TD passes, twice answering Steelers TDs, to power a 27-24 upset in Pittsburgh. It was the second time in three weeks since replacing JaMarcus Russell as starter that Gradkowski authored a come-from-behind win. – Most clutch WR: Raiders wideout Louis Murphy caught the final two of Gradkowski’s TD passes, including the game-winner...

Sunday’s other NFL games

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 INDIANAPOLIS | Peyton Manning keeps finding new winning formulas, and the Colts keep making history. Instead of another patented comeback or impressive air show, Manning opened December by playing keepaway from Tennessee and leading the Colts to their record-tying 21st consecutive regular-season win. Joseph Addai ran 21 times for a season-high 79 yards and two touchdowns. Manning was 24 of 37 for 270 yards and one TD,...


NFL Preview: Washington Redskins +9 1/2 hosting New Orleans Saints

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 The Saints, a warm-weather dome team, are traveling on a short week following a huge Monday night victory against New England. All the Saints have been hearing this week is praise and the possibility of them going unbeaten. But this won’t be a temperature-controlled climate game against a weak secondary for New Orleans. It’s cold this time of year in Washington D.C. It’s a grass field and the Redskins...

NFL Preview: Minnesota Vikings vs Arizona Cardinals

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  An NFL wagering match-up between two division leaders will take place in the desert on Sunday night football when the Arizona Cardinals (7-4 SU, 7-4 ATS) take on the Minnesota Vikings (10-1 SU, 7-3-1 ATS). Minnesota has won four straight and is undefeated against the football betting odds in those four wins, while Arizona had won three straight before falling to the Titans thanks to a miraculous comeback from Vince...

NFL Preview: Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  The New York Giants (6-5 SU, 4-6-1 ATS) are in a must-win situation this Sunday when they take on the Dallas Cowboys (8-3 SU, 6-5 ATS) in an NFL gambling affair.  The G-Men need a win to stay in the competitive NFC playoff picture, whereas the Cowboys can pretty much wrap up a playoff spot if they get the football betting win today. Wade Phillips and the Cowboys have been much maligned for their postseason woes, but...

NFL implements new concussion policy

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  The NFL is implementing a new policy it hopes will help in the fight to protect players in the issue of head trauma and concussion. NFL team doctors were informed this week that each team will now be required to supplement their medical staffs with an “independent neurologist or neurosurgeon” to specifically help with concussions, FOX Sports has learned. Teams were instructed to immediately find “independent”...

NFL Preview: Kansas City Chiefs vs San Diego Chargers

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  No doubt the Chargers are going to put up a lot of points against Kansas City. They scored 37 points when they met the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 7. It certainly wasn’t a fluke. San Diego’s strength is its passing attack spearheaded by Philip Rivers. The Chiefs have a slow secondary and lack a pass rush. That’s a bad combination and goes a long way in explaining why Kansas City has the third-worst...

Jets, Bills: The NFL’s Version of the McRib

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  There is a billboard near my local McDonalds in Los Angeles that exclaims, “It’s Back”.  The billboard is referring to the short-time promotional sandwich of the past, the McRib.  It’s back and I can’t for the life of me figure out why.  I know there are some people that like it and I’m sorry if I offend you, but I always felt it was one of the worst things I had ever eaten in my life.  It is slopped...

Bengals’ backfield may get crowded next week

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  CINCINNATI — Cedric Benson said he was healthy enough to play yesterday, but the Bengals decided to let the running back’s hip flexor heal for another week. “Now all of that is over,” Benson said after Cincinnati’s 16-7 victory over the Browns. “I’ll be back out there next week.” The question is: Will he still be the Bengals’ workhorse? Larry Johnson, who was signed Nov. 17 after...

NFL Stars of the day

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  QUARTERBACKS CHRIS REDMAN, FALCONS 23-of-41, 243 yards, 2 TDs The Falcons’ season looked to be toast when Matt Ryan left with an injured toe on the first series, but Redman stepped in and kept Atlanta within striking distance. His TD pass to Roddy White on fourth-and-goal from the 5-yard line with 23 seconds left rescued Atlanta in a 20-17 home win against Tampa Bay. VINCE YOUNG, TITANS 27-of-43, 387 yards, TD Much...

Peyton Manning , The Frontrunner For NFL MVP?

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  It seems like the overwhelming majority of people think that Peyton Manning is easily on pace to receive his fourth league MVP. They cite the fact that Manning is having one of the best statistical seasons ever while “doing more with less” in the receiving corps and taking his team to an undefeated record without any consistency from the running game and defense. However, upon closer examination, Manning’s...

Are NFL Fans Witnessing the Best QB Ever in Peyton Manning?

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  Pierre Garcon. Austin Collie. Joseph Addai. Three reasons why Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is not only the best quarterback in franchise history, even better than the infamous black high-top wearing Johnny Unitas, but the best quarterback in the history of the National Football League. You can make a solid argument pointing to Reggie Wayne as being an outstanding receiver for Manning, a valuable pass-catcher...

Rave Reviews for ‘The Blind Side’

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 Michael Oher is getting rave reviews, both on the football field and in movie theatres. Oher, a rookie offensive tackle, has started every game for the Baltimore Ravens, and has played very well. He’s played so well, in fact, some personnel people feel he deserves a trip to the Pro Bowl. Oher is making news off the field, too, as the film based on his life, The Blind Side, is one of the top movies in America. In its...

Jets’ Kerry Rhodes Says His Demotion Is a Timeout

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 In 10 games this season, safety Kerry Rhodes has recorded an equal number of interceptions, sacks, forced fumbles and fumble recoveries — zero. Because of that, and because the Jets are 4-6, Coach Rex Ryan has demoted Rhodes for their game Sunday against Carolina.Instead of Watching TV, Giants Will Be on TV (November 26, 2009) Safety Eric Smith will replace Rhodes in the Jets’ base defense, but Rhodes will continue...

NFL Issues New Guidelines on Concussions

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 Arizona’s Kurt Warner, the other Super Bowl quarterback last season, has also been hampered by a head injury this season. The league has maintained, despite widespread criticism, that it was safe to allow players to return to the field as soon as their symptoms were gone — even in the same game in which the injury occurred. It has not been uncommon for players to return, either after passing a sideline test...

New NFL Culture May Filter Down Slowly

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

  TUSTIN, Calif. — For years, as the National Football League steadfastly defended its policy of letting some players return to the field after concussions, independent medical experts warned that the league’s policy influenced the college and youth levels, which often take their cues from the professional ranks. Skip to next paragraph So when the N.F.L. reversed course Wednesday and said that players who show anything...

Patriots defense exposed even more by Saints

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 NEW ORLEANS – Now you all know why Bill Belichick went for it on fourth-and-2 in Indianapolis. The New Orleans Saints made that abundantly clear last night, if anyone really had any doubts. It was never a defensive vote of confidence, as Pats linebacker Jerod Mayo tried to turn it into several days after the Colts game. It was never a percentage play, as the mathematicians and sycophants tried to claim. It was...

NFL news : Concussion rules will expand

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

 The online bookmakers won nearly all the games vs. the betting public on Sunday Week 13 of the regular NFL season, including two of the biggest games. Around 90 percent of the backing was on the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints to cover in their respective games and that did not happen. The Patriots, in fact, lost to Miami on the road.  New Orleans managed to win in overtime and avoid a shocking upset on...

NFL May End $100 Million Revenue-Sharing Fund

Nfl owners are prepared to end a small sliver of revenue sharing that helps shore up the league’s lowest-revenue teams. Skip to next paragraph The owners informed the players union that starting with the next league year in March — which would be the start of an uncapped season if no new collective bargaining agreement is reached — owners will not share a $100 million fund.

NFL can’t ignore Jaguars anymore

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

Don’t look now, Jacksonville — and judging by a record-low attendance of 42,079 on Sunday, you obviously need no prompting to ignore the Jaguars — but the best-kept secret in the NFL refuses to fade away. Your pro football franchise is one stubborn, relentless bunch of loveable no-names, at least outside of fantasy-league star Maurice Jones-Drew. This overhauled team that most experts pegged as a bottom-feeder when...

Michael Vick has unforgettable return to Atlanta

Posted by beryl on Dec 14, 2009

Michael Vick had a feeling his return to Atlanta would be special. He could tell by the tears welling in his eyes even before he reached the Georgia Dome. “I’ll never forget this day,” Vick said after running and passing for touchdowns in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 34-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The touchdowns were Vick’s first two of his comeback season after he spent 18 months...

NFL players become more vigilant on concussions

Posted by beryl on Dec 11, 2009

TAMPA — Earnest Graham gave his response without hesitation or contemplation. Asked how he would handle a rash of concussions, the Bucs running back said: “I don’t think I’d continue playing. When you have kids, it’s really about quality of life.” In a sport in which players are taught to operate as if they are invincible, some are warming to the idea that taking precautions after getting...
