As the 2016-2017 NFL regular season comes to a close, fans are either happy with how their teams did or extremely disappointed with some of their favorite players. Every year, Super Bowl dreams are crushed because of season-ending injuries, bad luck, and of course, disappointing players. Whether it's a top prospect not meeting expectations or last year's MVP letting his team down, this list of the most disappointing NFL players in 2016-2017 includes a mixed bag of trophy winners, first-round picks, and even all-time greats. 

2015 MVP Cam Newton was expected to lead his Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl again, but due to a major drop in his accuracy, last year's NFC champions did not even make the playoffs. Other disappointing quarterbacks include the Houston Texans' Brock Osweiler, who had more interceptions than touchdown passes, and the Jacksonville Jaguars' Blake Bortles, whose stats heavily regressed in 2016.

Vote up who you think was the most disappointing player in the NFL in the 2016-2017 season. The list features the Dallas Cowboys' injury-prone quarterback Tony Romo, 2015 Offensive Rookie of the Year Todd Gurley, and the Arizona Cardinals' aging QB Carson Palmer. If you were let down by any of these NFL players who didn't live up to the hype in 2016, vote them up and hope they don't end up on this list next season.

<![CDATA[Who Will Be the 2016 Season AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year?]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/nfl-defensive-rookie-of-the-year-2016/ranker-sports

With the NFL playoffs starting this weekend, it's time for the Associated Press to cast their votes for the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year 2016. A nationwide panel of 50 AP members will decide which NFL player most helped his team on defense during his first season. This could include any defensive plays like interceptions, sacks, and defensive touchdowns. And while there are plenty of AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year predictions written by sports journalists out there, this list is all about what you think.

In the 2015 season, cornerback Marcus Peters of the Kansas City Chiefs won the Defensive ROTY award for his eight interceptions (two of them returned for touchdowns) in his rookie season. In the 2016-2017 season, the award might go to defensive end Joey Bosa of the San Diego Chargers. Although he missed his first four games due to injury, he had 10.5 sacks and 21 quarterback hits this season. 

But those aren't the only NFL rookies most likely to be Defensive Rookie of the Year. Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey is also in contention for the award. Even though his team did not perform well in the regular season, Ramsey has shown great promise as a young cornerback when shutting down the opposing team's primary receiver.  

Who do you think will be the AP 2016 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year? Will October's Defensive Rookie of the Month Joey Bosa be the ROTY winner? How about New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple or Chicago Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd?

Vote for the NFL player you think will win the AP NFL 2016 Defensive Rookie of the Year award!

<![CDATA[Who Will Be the 2016 Season AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year?]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/nfl-offensive-rookie-of-the-year-2016/ranker-sports

With the NFL playoffs starting this weekend, it's time for the Associated Press to cast their votes for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year 2016. A nationwide panel of 50 AP members will decide which NFL player most helped his team on offense during his first season. This could include any offensive plays like rushed yards, completed passes, and scored touchdowns. And while there are plenty of AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year predictions written by sports journalists out there, this list is all about what you think.

Last year, running back Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams won the Offensive ROTY award after rushing 1,106 yards in his rookie season. However, 2016-2017 rookie Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys passed the 1,000 yards rushed mark in just his ninth game. The running back ended his rookie season with 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns, making him the frontrunner for 2016's Offensive Rookie of the Year.  

Other NFL rookies most likely to be Offensive Rookie of the Year include Elliott's Dallas teammate, quarterback Dak Prescott. After Tony Romo got injured in the preseason, rookie Prescott became the starting back for the 2016-2017 season and led the Cowboys to a 13-3 record, which ties for the best record in team history. Completing 260 passes and winning Offensive Rookie of the Month in November, Prescott is also a strong contender to be the 2016 NFL Offensive ROTY. 

Who do you think will be the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year? Will the ROTY winner be between Dallas Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott and Dax Prescott? Don't forget about quarterback Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles, who set an NFL record by throwing 379 pass completions, the most by any rookie. 

Vote for the NFL player you think will win the AP 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year Award!

<![CDATA[Who Do You Think Will Win Super Bowl 51?]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/who-will-win-super-bowl-51/ranker-sports

Who is going to win the Super Bowl LI? Since the best NFL team doesn't necessarily win, nobody really knows. Fans can speculate all day and night, but all their Super Bowl 51 predictions won't change the outcome when two of the heaviest hitters in football meet in Houston, Texas. At this point, any one of the teams in the playoffs has a shot to go home with one of the handsomest championship trophies in sports.

Obviously, once there are answers to who is going to win the NFC and the AFC, everybody will have a better idea of where to place the smart money. Until then, though, anxious pigskin fans can only wonder if Eli Manning's Giants will face off against Tom Brady's Patriots or if Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will battle Ben Roethlisberger's Steelers.

Who do you think will win Super Bowl 51? Put your votes where your opinions are and vote up the teams you reckon have the best shot at winning the 2017 Super Bowl. Or skip the voting entirely, because you're clearly watching this year's climactic NFL game for one reason and one reason only: that Lady Gaga halftime show extravaganza.

<![CDATA[The Most Over-the-Top Hilarious Touchdown Celebrations of All Time]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/funniest-nfl-touchdown-celebrations/jacob-shelton

If you’re reading this, you probably don’t remember a time in the NFL before end zone celebrations (and if you do, then take a nap, Grandpa). End zone celebrations became a thing in the late '80s with ball-spiking and slowly ramped up into incredibly elaborate performances based around players machine-gunning each other or trying to topple a field goal post with their masculinity and touchdown prowess.

The NFL finally started handing out fines for excessive celebrations, but that hasn’t stopped players from getting H.A.M. after an especially good play. For some players, the $10,000 fine (!) is totally worth twerking in the end zone, or taking a phone call after scoring six quick points, but you know there’s at least one player on this list who’s regretting their celebration now that they want to buy a new jet ski.

It’s ridiculous to tell an adult football player that he’s being over the top after scoring a touchdown. When your adrenaline is through the roof, and you’ve just caught a 47-yard pass or barreled through a defensive line to turn your enemies into dust, you have to let off steam somehow, or else the one thing you love will quickly become a joyless slog like the rest of your life. These touchdown celebrations may be over the top, but most of them were well-earned.


The Most Over-the-Top Hilarious Touchdown Celebrations of All Time,

It Turns Out Lance Moore Watches Comedy Central

After catching a 44-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees, Lance Moore showed off his basic cable subscription by performing the Hingle McCringleberry excessive celebration from Key and Peele.


John Brown Has a Seizure

While playing against the Rams in 2014, John Brown scored a 48-yard touchdown and had what can only be described as a "dance seizure." This was Brown's rookie year so don't judge his spastic dance moves too hard - but judge him a little bit or he'll never learn to feel shame. 


Randy Moss Moons the Packers Crowd

What's the deal with Randy Moss? In 2005, he and his Vikings were playing against the Packers at Lambeau Field when Moss mooned the Packers fans after a TD. Joe Buck called him "disgusting" and he received a $10,000 fine. That's one expensive eclipse. 


William Gay Dances So Hard He Gets Flagged

You guys, William Gay can't stop dancing. It doesn't matter that he got a penalty for an excessive celebration, a flag won't stop his hot dance moves coupled with very cordial handshakes. If Gay and the Steelers were playing against any team other than the Bengals, it would probably be a big deal that he got a flag on a touchdown interception - but come on, no one cares about the Bengals. 


Jimmy Graham Dunking on the Field Goal

At some point in his NFL career, Jimmy Graham became addicted to dunking on field goal posts after touchdowns. And who can blame him? It looks like a lot of fun! It also looks like it's about to kill ten people, but that's not that much different from anything that happens in football. The NFL finally made a rule against dunking on the field goal post and while Graham "wasn't happy about it" he said that he would chill and move on to his new form of touchdown celebration, throwing rocks into the crowd. 


Joe Horn Hides a Phone in the End Zone

At a game between the New Orleans Saints and the New York Giants, Joe Horn caught four touchdown passes, but no one remembers that. What they do remember is that someone handed him a flip phone after one of his TDs and he supposedly called his mom. He somehow didn't receive an excessive celebration penalty, but he was nominated as the NFL's biggest momma's boy of 2003. 


Ezekiel Elliot Donates Himself to the Salvation Army

So first of all, this is amazing. Of course Ezekiel Elliot jumped into a giant Salvation Army bucket after scoring a touchdown in a Sunday night game against Tampa Bay. Why put the bucket there if you don't want someone to jump into it? The great thing about this story is that the Salvation Army reported that by Tuesday they had received $850,000 in donations.

Skeletor impersonator and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called in from his lair inside a volcano to say, "We have those kettles there because we do want the visibility of reminding everybody, certainly at this time of year, how doing the most good is putting a dollar in that red kettle. To have gotten that attention in front of probably 20 million or so people last night for the Salvation Army was just wonderful."


Antonio Brown Duck-Walks

In a game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots, Antonio Brown scored a nice little touchdown and then lost all of his cool points by celebrating with a duck walk? Or maybe a rendition of Charlie Chaplin's tramp dance? Speculate amongst yourselves as to what Brown is doing but if there's one thing that's for sure, it's that what he's doing is definitely not good. 


Doug Baldwin Sh*ts Bricks

Hop in your Deloreans and go back to the 2015 season to Seattle's game against the Patriots and watch as Doug Baldwin catches a three-yard pass for a touchdown and then pretends to either sh*t a football or lay an egg. Either way, it looks weird, not cool. Not in a "not cool, Doug" way, but in a "Hey, you're a professional athlete and you're supposed to act like you're cool, not like you're the weird kid in class." When asked about the gesture after the game, all he said was, "That's between me and the person it was directed at." Whatever, Doug. 


Is Antonio Brown the Road Runner?

Once again we join an Antonio Brown touchdown already in progress. This time, in a game against the Indianapolis Colts, Brown celebrates by jumping junk first into the goal post. Didn't he see Concussion

<![CDATA[The 20 Most Brutal and Gruesome Football Injuries in NFL History]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/brutal-football-injuries/laura-allan

Football is a pretty rough sport, there's no denying that. The hits can be positively bone crushing. . . literally! While there haven't been any football deaths directly caused by on-field injuries, there have been some pretty shocking football accidents that will make even the toughest fans cringe. But there are some people who can't help watching these kind of football player injuries on the field, and those people might be wondering which are the worst football injuries of all time. Wonder no more, because this collection contains pictures and descriptions of the sport's most gruesome blows.

With all the hits to the head, broken limbs, and neck injuries over the years, some people may be surprised that there haven't been any deaths. Football equipment has progressed drastically over the years, and even now the league is pushing for better concussion policy. That being said, its hard to keep injuries out of such a physical sport, and many players pay the price.

Be warned, the footage shown here is incredibly graphic, and not for those with weak stomachs. After all, these are the worst nfl injuries of all time, so be prepared for some hard hits, broken limbs, and even a little blood.


The 20 Most Brutal and Gruesome Football Injuries in NFL History,

Jeff Fuller Breaks His Neck Right After an Earthquake

The Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989 left the Bay Area of California in tatters, but things were actually about to get worse for one young football player. Jeff Fuller was playing for the 49ers, at Stanford Stadium, on October 22, just a few days after the devastating earthquake, when there was an awkward helmet-to-helmet collision with an opposing player. The impact with a Patriot's player broke his neck and partially paralyzed him on one side, and he was unable to rise from the field. The play ended the young man's career, and though he went through decades of rehab, he still does not have use of one of his arms. While there is no graphic footage of the injury, it is still regarded as one of the worst in history. 


Johnny Knox Bends in Half (the Wrong Way)

There are times when you just have to acknowledge that the human body is not supposed to bend that way. Such was the case with Johnny Knox in a 2011 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Knox was running the ball up field, when he fumbled as Kam Chancellor knocked the ball loose. He tried to leap onto the loose ball, but as he slid forward, he hit Hargrove, who was also trying to recover the fumble. The impact sickeningly bent Knox's torso in half, so his back was touching his rear. The injury caused Knox permanent nerve damage, and he needed surgery to fuse parts of his spine back together. He never returned to the NFL.


Ronnie Lott Opts for Amputation After an Injury

Ronnie Lott was a rough and tumble kind of player all throughout '80s and '90s, and he's still renowned for some of his plays even today. Unfortunately, one play he is known for is hardly pretty. During the 1985 season, on December 22, Lott was playing hard in a game against the Dallas Cowboys, when an awkward collision crushed his pinkie finger towards his chest. The blow almost completely severed his finger, and both flesh and bone fragments were left on the field as he went running off. Witnesses couldn't initially see how bad the injury was, but doctors saw quickly enough that it was going to be a long recovery.

Lott had two decisions. They could either fill his hand with pins, and graft bone from his wrist, which would be an intensely long recovery, or he could have it amputated just above the first joint. Lott chose amputation, and still went on to play football, minus the tip of his finger for almost another decade.


Destry Wright's Career Ends Before It Even Begins

Destry Wright was a blossoming young running back, and was just about to start his pro career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Things were going fine until a pre-season game against the Dallas Cowboys on July 30, 2000 stole his future from him. During a play, Wright's ankle became caught up and twisted, not only dislocating at the joint but also breaking his leg. A reporter snapped a photo during the preseason matchup, and it clearly shows Wright's feet pointing in completely opposite directions. The play ended his career before it ever really started.


Bo Jackson Tries to Walk Off a Hip Fracture

You have to be tough to play football, and few players knew that better than Bo Jackson. Not only was the man a football player, he was also a baseball player, making him one of the most sports-diverse people of his era. During a game against Cincinnati, in January 1991, Jackson was involved in a vicious tackle, as he often was, but this time things went wrong. The impact dislocated and shattered one of his hip bones, and even as Bo rose from the field to try to walk to the sidelines, he had to pop the bone back together more than once. The injury caused him to lose all cartilage in his hip, and it ended his football and ultimately his baseball career.


Kuper's Leg Breaks So Badly, His Teammates Feel Sick

During the Bronco's last regular season game of 2011, Kuper was on the receiving end of an awkward hit by the Kansas City Chiefs. As players came together, Kuper's leg was twisted and broken, to the point where his foot was pointing in the opposite direction of his other foot. You can't initially see what breaks Kuper's leg, but in the replays it's pretty obvious where things go horribly wrong. The injury required surgery and Kuper's game was never quite the same, though he didn't retire until 2014.

As you watch the video, pay attention to the reactions of his teammates and the opposing players in the first few seconds. You can see some of them turn away and grab their faces, feeling sick from seeing how bad his leg looks.


Joe Theismann's Leg Bone Breaks on National TV

The Joe Theismann injury is one of the most famous in football history, and it's also one of the most graphic. On November 18, 1985, the New York Giants were playing against the Redskins, and they were part way through the second quarter when something awful happened. The Giants went for a blitz, and Lawrence Taylor came barreling into Redskins quarterback Theismann, dragging him down for the sack. As it happened, Taylor's knee drove into Theismann's leg, shattering it in a spectacularly graphic way. Taylor instantly began calling for help the moment the play was over, rather than celebrating the hit, and viewers watched on national TV as Theismann lay on the field.

The play ended Theismann's career and left him with one leg permanently shorter than the other.


Darryl Stingley Is Permanently Paralyzed By an Awkward Hit

There are a lot of head and neck injuries in the NFL, and this has got to be one of the worst. On Aug. 12, 1978, in the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, New England Patriots player Daryll Stingley was going up to catch a pass when Jack Tatum ran into him with both speed and intent. After Stingley went down, he didn't get up, and he didn't move, even as medical professionals rushed onto the field. When doctors looked at him, they found that he could not feel anything in his limbs, and that two of his vertebrae had been crushed. From that moment on the field, Stingley became a life-long quadriplegic.

Tatum never apologized for the hit.


Napolean McCallum's Knee Bends the Wrong Way

This is another injury that looks so much worse thanks to slow motion. Running Back McCallum was playing for the Los Angeles Raiders against the 49ers, when Ken Norton Jr. got ahold of him during a play. As the two men went down, McCallum's left foot didn't move with the rest of him, dislocating the knee, hyperextending it, and rupturing an artery. The calf muscle and ligaments were ripped off the bone, and surgery was required to fix his leg, even up to possible amputation. Amputation was eventually avoided, but doctors told McCallum right away that his career was definitely over.


Dennis Byrd is Paralyzed on the Field

Stingley wasn't the only one to suffer paralysis on the field. During a game against the Kansas City Chiefs on November 29, 1992, Dennis Byrd went in to attempt a sack on Chief's quarterback, Dave Kreig. Unfortunately, he ran into his own teammate, ducking his head as he did so to try to avoid the hit. Instead, the hit broke one of his vertebrae, and Byrd found that he couldn't get up or walk. He was paralyzed, and left without the use of his legs for some time. Miraculously, in 1993, Byrd was able to walk to mid-field for an honorary coin toss, as he continued intensive rehab.

His career was ended and Byrd was killed in a car accident in 2016.

Every year, the NFL names one player as the league's MVP. It's one of the highest honors in sports, given to the best players in the game, whose skills, determination, and drive help win game after game.

<![CDATA[What Are the Seattle Seahawks Going to Do on 9/11?]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/what-are-the-seahawks-going-to-do-on-9-11/jacob-shelton

Predicting what the Seahawks will do during the National Anthem before their first regular season game is like predicting which way the wind is going to blow - you only know that it’s going to happen. When 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat during the National Anthem, his protest inspired athletes from diverse backgrounds to either follow suit in solidarity or publicly criticize his political statement. And now the Seattle Seahawks are planning something that will take place before their game on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil.

What are the Seattle Seahawks going to do during the National Anthem on 9/11? A protest? An act of overt patriotism? It's anyone's guess, as the team has been frustratingly vague. "It’s going to be a team thing," said linebacker Bobby Wagner. "That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”

Predictably, this has led to speculation, hyperbole, misleading headlines, and preemptive outrage. The fact is, however, that the world doesn't know what the NFL team is planning. Whether it's some form of protest or a new, politicized version of the Super Bowl Shuffle, the Seattle Seahawks September 11 move isn’t just a potentially important moment for sports, it’s an event that could cause people from all walks of life to think about what it means to be an American, as well as the implications of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Vote up the actions you think the Seahawks will undertake during the National Anthem at the 2016-2017 season opener.


What Are the Seattle Seahawks Going to Do on 9/11?,

Sit on the Sideline

Pray

Nothing, They're Bluffing

Introduce New Black Lives Matter-Inspired Uniforms

Take a Knee

A Group Hug

Wrap Themselves in American Flags

Eat a Piece of Apple Pie

Invite Members of Black Lives Matter onto the Field

Bust Out Their New Black Lives Matter Armbands

<![CDATA[Everything That Sucks About the NFL]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/worst-things-about-the-nfl/zachary-benau

NFL football is the most popular sport in America, but that doesn't mean there aren't things about it that suck. Every Sunday, Americans are glued to their TVs watching football, but unless you're watching NFL RedZone, which costs a fortune, you're probably watching a commercial or footage of a bunch of guys in uniform standing around waiting. That's because in a football game, there are only 11 minutes of action. Even the biggest football fans can agree there are plenty of reasons the NFL sucks.

For starters, commissioner Roger Goodell makes more than $30 million a year in salary. That seems a tad high for someone who seems to never do anything right. The rules are probably the least clear of any of the major sports, and it's certainly the most dangerous sport in the US. And these are just a few of the NFL complaints every football fan has. 

Here are things about the NFL that suck. Vote up the ones you think suck the hardest (and not in a good way). 


Everything That Sucks About the NFL,

Roger Goodell

The NFL Doesn't Care About Its Fans

The NFL Sucks the Fun Out of Everything

The Rules Are Too Convoluted

Quarterbacks Get Preferential Treatment

<![CDATA[The Worst Cases of the Madden Curse That'll Make You Believe]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/cases-of-the-madden-curse/cehudspeth
Even if you’re not a particularly superstitious person, there are some peculiar happenings that really can’t be denied when it comes the cover image of this particular video game franchise. The Madden Curse is the stuff of legend. The history of those who are featured on Madden covers is undeniably unsettling. Being featured on the game doesn’t gaurantee anything (except for more money), but there are certainly cases that make it seem like being the Madden cover athlete is the equivalent of making a deal with the devil. These are the worst cases of the Madden Curse.
The Worst Cases of the Madden Curse That'll Make You Believe,

Adrian Peterson
The year AP was on the cover he played in only one game before finding himself suspended for the rest of the season. He was indicted on child abuse charges.
Barry Sanders
After being featured on the cover, Barry Sanders suddenly retired before training camp even began.
Brett Favre
Favre was being featured on the cover as a tribute to his career because he’d told everyone he was retiring... but he didn't! Favre ended up playing for the Jets, where he’d play well at times, but eventually he tore a biceps tendon in his right shoulder, and the Jets missed the playoffs.
Donovan McNabb
After being featured on the cover of Madden 06, the season was unkind to McNabb. He tried to play through a sports hernia which only caused more damage that required season ending surgery. His Eagles were last in the NFC East with a 6-10 record.
Marshall Faulk
Prior to being featured on the cover, Faulk had five consecutive seasons with 1,000+ rushing yards. His season as the Madden Cover guy amounted to missing five games with an ankle injury, and ending his streak of 1,000 yard seasons. In fact, he ended up never rushing for a 1,000 yards again.
Michael Vick
Shortly after being announced as the cover athlete for Madden 2004, Vick fractured his fibula during a preseason game. He didn’t make it back until the final 5 games of the season, throwing for 585 yards and 4 TDs. The Falcons didn’t make the playoffs, posting a 5-11 record.
Shaun Alexander
After rushing for 1,880 yards, and being featured on Madden’s cover, Alexander injured his foot and missed six starts. This was his first time since the 2000 season that he didn’t reach 1,000 yards, only going for 896. After the cover and the foot injury he was injury prone and dropped off rather quickly, never reaching elite form again.
Troy Polamalu
Polamalu shared the cover with Larry Fitzgerald for Madden 10. Fitz had a good season, setting a career-high 13 TD receptions. Unfortunately for Troy, he sprained his knee in week 1, re-aggravated it later in the year, and ended up playing in only five games.
Vince Young
After leading the Titans to a 10-6 season, Young was featured on the cover of Madden. The following year he was benched in the preseason after violating team rules. He threw 17 picks and injured his quad before losing his job to Kerry Collins.
Peyton Hillis
After rushing for 1,177 yards in 2011, Hillis suffered from a bevy of injuries including strep throat, a sprained hip, and a bum hamstring. He only played in 10 games, racking up a measly 577 rushing yards, and 3 touchdowns. He has never returned to form since that breakout year.

<![CDATA[Concussion Movie Quotes]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/concussion-movie-quotes/movie-and-tv-quotes
Concussion movie quotes tell the based on a true story of pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu who discovered a connection between NFL players' concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). The biographical sports and medical drama was adapted into a screenplay by Peter Landesman based on the book Game Brain by Jeanne Marie Laskas. Landesman also directed Concussion, which opened in theaters on December 25, 2015.

In Concussion, pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) grew up wanting nothing more than to come to America from his native Nigeria. After he fulfilled that mission, he began a fellowship in pathology and neuropathology at the University of Pittsburgh and conducted an autopsy on local pro football legend Mike Webster in 2002. Subsequent testing of Webster's brain revealed a condition no one had seen before, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), and a link that his repetitive concussions caused the condition and his death.

But when Omalu shared his findings with other doctors (including Alec Baldwin and Albert Brooks) and tried to share the research with the NFL (including Paul Reiser and Luke Wilson, hilariously as Roger Goodell), it was he who came under attack. Through various methods of intimidation and public denial of his facts, the league used multiple ways of trying to silence Dr. Omalu while many more died. This did not deter Omalu from his mission to make these findings known to all and save lives in the process.

Concussion brought a very serious topic to theaters which were already showing some other lighter movies including Joy, Daddy's Home, Point Break, The Hateful Eight, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Sisters.
Concussion Movie Quotes,

They're Terrified of You
Dr. Bennet Omalu: What do they want?
Dr. Cyril Wecht: The NFL wants you to say you made it all up.
Dr. Bennet Omalu: I made it up?
Dr. Cyril Wecht: They're accusing you of fraud.
Dr. Ron Hamilton: If you retract, you'll be fine. This all goes away.
Dr. Bennet Omalu: Why? Why are they all doing this?
Dr. Cyril Wecht: They're terrified of you. Bennet Omalu is going to war with a corporation that has 20 million people on a weekly basis craving their product the same way they crave food. The NFL owns a day of the week, the same day the Church used to own. Now it's theirs. They're very big.

Dr. Omalu cannot understand why the NFL is battling his research so strongly. As Cyril explains, they're an insanely big company and this could shatter their profits.
This is Bigger Than They Are
Dr. Bennet Omalu: They have to listen to us. This is bigger than they are!

Dr. Omalu persists that the NFL needs to be open to his findings. This is about life and death, which is more important than their silly little football league.
I Found a Disease That No One Has
Dr. Bennet Omalu: I think found a disease that no one has ever seen before. Repetitive head trauma chokes the brain! It turns you into someone else.

By examining the brains of several deceased professional football players, Bennet discovered a disease no one yet had identified. He determined that multiple concussions caused horrific long-term brain injuries with tragic results.
They Don't Want to Talk to You
Dr. Julian Bailes: Tape, needles, Torodol, Vicodin, whatever it takes to keep them in the game. It's business.
Dr. Bennet Omalu: Get me a meeting with the commissioner.
Dr. Julian Bailes: They don't want to want to talk to you. The NFL has known about the concussion issue for years. You've turned on the lights and gave their biggest boogey man a name.

While Bennet is eager to meet with the NFL about his findings, Dr. Bailes explains why he needs to simmer down. As Julian says, the league is quite aware of this fact and is in no hurry to make the public aware of it too.
Tell the Truth!
Dr. Bennet Omalu: Tell the truth! Tell the truth!

Dr. Omalu is shocked when folks from the NFL continuously lie about the facts behind the deaths linked to CTE. It's unconscionable to him that they could deny this, knowing that men died because of this alarming situation.
I Have to Keep Going
Dr. Julian Bailes: What you think they're doing to you now, that's nothing. You have no idea how bad this could get.
Dr. Bennet Omalu: I have to keep going.

Discussing how the NFL is coming after Bennet as a method of intimidation to get him to keep his mouth shut, Julian warns Bennet that it can get much worse. The NFL has powers to do many things in this world and that should scare Bennet enough to stand down.
If They Continue to Deny My Work
Dr. Bennet Omalu: If they continue to deny my work, men continue to die.
Dr. Cyril Wecht: Sometimes in life you're asked to leave it alone. But sometimes you can't.

As Dr. Wecht highlights, sometimes when people want you to do one thing, that nagging morality inside you prevents that. This is the case for Dr. Omalu, who knows that if this discovery is hushed, more will die.
Commissioner Goodell, I Asked You a Simple Question
Congressman: Is there any link between head injuries and professional football players?
Commissioner Goodell: The NFL, it's an entertainment product.
Congressman: When did you become aware of the concussion issue?
Commissioner Goodell: This is an evolving science.
Congressman: Commissioner Goodell, I asked you a simple question.

In what is likely an unconnected set of declarations by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the commish tries to weasel his way out of answering questions about CTE. One could argue that his lack of cooperation with Congress is conduct detrimental to the game.
No Proof Was Presented Today
Dr. Elliot Pellman: No proof was presented today because there simply isn't any.

An NFL-paid doctor tries to negate Dr. Omalu's findings about CTE by claiming there is no proof of his claims. With several deaths linked to CTE, proof is undeniable.
If You Don't Speak for Them, Who Will?
Dr. Bennet Omalu: When I was a boy, heaven was here and America was here. You could be anything, you could do anything. I never wanted anything as much as I wanted to be an American.
...
Dr. Bennet Omalu: I am the wrong person to have discovered this.
Prema Mutiso: If you don't speak for them, who will?

In speaking to his lady friend, Dr. Omalu explains how he wanted to much to be an American, yet what he found here would make him quite the enemy of the country. As Prema reminds him, he can save lives by sharing his discovery.

Outside of Gibbs, there have been no Washington Championships, with the team struggling to make a splash in the NFC.

If you follow football, you know that current Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has been a blessing to the franchise.

Coach Parcells was head coach of the Giants from 1983-1990, and also led the team to two Super Bowl victories. In fact, both Coughlin and Parcells currently hold a lifetime 8-3 record in the playoffs, making it hard to put one over the other.

Some say backup quarterbacks have the best job in the world - they get millions of dollars to hold clip boards. But some of the best quarterbacks of all time were backups thrown unexpectedly into a starting position. Tom Brady was Drew Bledsoe's backup before Bledsoe got hurt. Kurt Warner was Trent Green's backup before Green went down. The list goes on and on.

Which 2015 backup quarterbacks will see glory this season? No, we are not asking you to rank the best backup quarterbacks of 2015. We are asking you to rank the backup quarterbacks most likely to make an impact. Matt Hasselbeck is talented, but his chances of playing time are way smaller than Mark Sanchez's, since the Eagles' backup is sitting behind injury-prone Sam Bradford. 

Go ahead and vote up the backup quarterbacks you think will step up this season! Downvote the QBs who will stay in the shadows of starters. If we're missing any backups you believe in, add them to the list. And remember, Tom Brady is no longer suspended, so Jimmy Garoppolo my not be 2015's breakout backup QB after all.

It's obvious that Bill Belichick is the all time greatest Patriots coach if you're going by the numbers. This man led New England to 6 Super Bowl appearances, four of which the team won. He has been coaching the Patriots since 2000, and his 175 regular season wins are way more than any other coach has had in the history of the team.
 
That being said, there are still some other great coaches that have coached for the New England Patriots. Bill Parcells captured an AFC Championship in 96, but was unable to win the Super Bowl. Other famous names include Raymond Berry and Chuck Fairbanks.

It's hard to argue that Bud Grant isn't the greatest Vikings coach of all time. Boasting a .635 regular season win percentage, Grant led Minnesota to the Superbowl 3 out of 4 years between 1973-1976. Unfortunately they lost all three times, leaving them stinging almost as bad as Buffalo.
 
Although Minnesota hasn't played in a Super Bowl since, they've still had some great coaches who have almost gotten there. Coach Dennis Green took the Vikings to the playoffs many times during his 9 season run with the team, with an impressive 97-62 regular season record.

Since 1996 there have been 8 different Lions head coaches, including names like Dick Jauron, Bobby Ross, and most recently Jim Schwartz. The current head coach of the Detroit Lions is Jim Caldwell, having been with the team since 2014.

Mike Shanahan is widely regarded as one of the Denver Broncos top coaches, winning two back-to-back Super Bowls in 1997 and 1998. Although the team had the legendary John Elway as their quarterback, Shanahan's coaching was still instrumental in the team's success.

Other coaches to take the Broncos to the Super Bowl include Dan Reeves, with three AFC Championships under his belt, and John Fox, who took the Broncos to the big game in 2013. Who is the greatest Denver Broncos coach of all time?

There have been many New York Jets coaches since the team got its start, but who is truly the best New York Jets coach of all time?

Upvote your favorites on this list of New York Jets coaches, and downvote any that you believe brought the team down.
 
Rex Ryan served as the Jets coach from 2009-2014, leading the team to two AFC Championship games with rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez. They never made it to the Super Bowl under Ryan, but had a decent few years of being a contender in the NFL.
 
The Jets won their only Super Bowl under coach Weeb Ewbank. They were victorious in Super Bowl III, the game where Joe Namath famously guaranteed that the Jets would win.

<![CDATA[The NFL Player Most Likely to Get Injured in 2015]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/nfl-player-most-likely-to-get-injured-in-2015/ranker-nfl
There's nothing more devastating to a fantasy football team's momentum than to have the perfect draft followed by debilitating injuries. It's the one factor that you can't predict. But some players are more likely to be injured, whether from age, the nature of their position, or just that gut feeling that they're "due" for an injury that will have them riding the pine all season.

Despite NFL referees taking a harsher look at pass interference in the past decade, wide receivers tend to be injured more often than other offensive positions. But the reality is that all offensive positions are always in danger of an injury, simply because they're a target the moment they have the ball. None of the best quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, or tight ends are safe.

So here's a handy list of football players likely to be injured in the 2015-2016 NFL season! Take a look at our list of football players most likely to get injured, vote up the ones you think are going to get hurt and downvote the ones you think are more durable.

The NFL Player Most Likely to Get Injured in 2015,

Ben Roethlisberger

We want you to help us answer that question by voting for your favorite Chicago Bears coaches, keeping stats like Super Bowl wins and playoff runs in mind.

It's hard to argue against George Halas being the greatest Bears head coach in the history of the team, seeing that he coached the team to 6 NFL Championships as a coach, and saw two more as the team's owner. He was an innovator and left a lasting impact on not just the Bears organization, but the entire NFL in general.
 
Mike Ditka is another legendary Chicago Bears head coach, winning Superbowls with the team as both a coach and player. In fact it was George Halas who offered Ditka the head coach position in 1982, where Ditka quickly turned the team into a major threat.

It's really hard to argue that Tom Landry isn't the greatest Dallas Cowboys coach of all time. With 2 Super Bowl wins and 5 NFC Championships, he coached the Cowboys for almost 30 years and left an amazing legacy behind when he died in 2000.
 
Jimmy Johnson was another incredible coach for the Cowboys, leading the franchise to back-to-back Super Bowl Championships in 1992 and 1993. Just two years later coach Barry Switzer won a Super Bowl with the Cowboys as well, making him one of only three coaches to win both a college national and NFL Championship.

We want you to help us answer that question by voting for your favorite Cincinnati Bengals coaches, keeping stats like Super Bowl wins and playoff runs in mind. The Bengals unfortunately don't a national championship under their belt, but they've had a couple of close chances.

Forrest Gregg is not only a NFL Hall of Fame player, but he was a fantastic coach for the Bengals as well. He led the Bengals to a Super Bowl appearance in 1981, where they lost to the 49ers by a score of 26-21. Cincinnati had significantly more yards gained that game, but still ultimately ended up losing by just 5 points. Sam Wyche also led the team to a Super Bowl appearance in 1988, but again the team lost to the 49ers.
 
If the Cincinnati Bengals had a best of all time team, who would coach it? Would you put Marvin Lewis, their coach since 2003, above the others who have given team a Super Bowl shot? Vote for your favorites below, even if the coach never won a championship with the Cincinnati Bengals.

If you told a Dolphins fan that Don Shula wasn't the greatest Miami Dolphins coach of all time, they would probably look at you confused and ask if you know anything about the team's history. Shula led the Dolphins to back-to-back Super Bowl Championships in 1972 and 1973, and is the only head coach to win a Super Bowl with the Dolphins.

The worst Heisman Trophy winners certainly excelled in the college game but failed at the next level. The biggest Heisman disappointments hail from some of the most storied programs in college football, and while many Heisman Trophy winners had great NFL careers (players like Barry Sanders, Marcus Allen and Tony Dorsett), others peaked in college and were just never the same. The biggest Heisman busts were of course high draft picks but quite obviously failed to live up to expectations. Heisman busts like Matt Leinart and Andre Ware could fall into the category of enormously disappointing QBs. Other Heisman Trophy failures in the NFL were running backs (like Rashaan Salaam and Archie Griffin) that never matched their college success at the pro level. There have been many Heisman Trophy busts over the year but which one do you think is the biggest? Vote now for the most disappointing Heisman Trophy winner!

Guys like Jim Plunkett, Joe Theismann and Archie Manning fall into this category. Many of the best college QBs of the 70s played for traditional powerhouses like Notre Dame and USC.

It is arguable that the top 70s college running backs are some of the most legendary players in the history of the game. The greatest college running backs of the 1970s were a truly historic group when you think about it. Ohio State's Archie Griffin is still the only player to win two Heisman Trophies, making him one of the best college running backs of the 70s. Other top running backs of the 70s include guys like Billy Sims and Charles White. A pair of other top college running backs from the 1970s include fellow Heisman Trophy winners Tony Dorsett and Earl Campbell, who are both enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But the list of top college running backs of the 70s includes players that didn't win the Heisman. Tailbacks like Ed Marinaro and Greg Pruitt fall into this category. Some of the top college running backs of the 70s went on to star in the NFL. This group includes Freeman McNeil and Joe Cribbs. The best college running backs of the 1970s played for a variety of schools too.

Every season a select number of NFL quarterbacks lose their jobs. Some due to injury, others to performance, and some for their off the field antics. Often times this is impossible to predict. No one would have imagined Tom Brady playing during the 201 season - until Drew Bledsoe went down with an injury. The same could be said for Kurt Warner entering the 1999 season, at least until Trent Green was lost for the season. The 2015 season could very well see a different backup quarterback lead a team to a Super Bowl.

Which NFL quarterbacks could lose their jobs this season? Can Sam Bradford go a whole season without getting injured? Will Marcus Mariota start 16 games for the Tennessee Titans as a rookie? And how long will Josh McCown play before Cleveland Browns fans demand to see “Johnny Football”?

Vote up the starting quarterbacks who could lose their jobs this season. Who knows? Maybe a seasoned veteran will have a bad year. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees - none of them are getting any younger.

Quarterbacks Most Likely to Lose Their Jobs in 2015,

Jay Cutler
Could be replaced by: Jimmy Clausen

This is a list of the best Baltimore Ravens of all time. After they left Cleveland after the 1995 season, the Baltimore Ravens were given a fresh start and were considered a new franchise. The Ravens first draft in 1996 brought two of the best players in team history to Baltimore. Ray Lewis and Jonathan Ogden were drafted by the Ravens in the first round of that year's draft and are two of the greatest Ravens ever. Ogden is in the Hall of Fame and Lewis is considered one of the best linebackers all time who will be joining Ogden in Canton in the near future. The duo were the anchors on the Ravens Super Bowl winning team in the 2000 season. Though the Ravens offense wasn't the best, they had one of the best defenses in NFL history.

Baltimore's defense is usually one of the toughest in the NFL. Many of the top Ravens are on the defensive side of the ball. Ed Reed, Haloti Ngata, Terrell Suggs and Peter Boulware have won multiple awards for their defensive prowess. Joe Flacco is easily the franchise's best quarterback. Flacco led the team to a Super Bowl victory over San Francisco in 2013 and was named the MVP of that game. Along with Flacco, Ray Rice and Jamal Lewis are two of the greatest offensive players in Ravens history.

This list of the best Baltimore Ravens players of all time. If you think someone should be on this list and isn't, please feel free to include him on this. Vote or rerank the list according to how you think the greatest Baltimore Ravens should be.

They have featured a number of Hall of Fame players and some of the best players ever, especially on offense.

Another position of strength for the Redskins has been its offensive line. Nicknamed "The Hogs," the Redskins teams of the 1980s had one of the best offensive lines in the league, and easily one of the most memorable nicknames ever. Along with a superstar receiving cores with Art Monk, Gary Clark and Ricky Sanders, the Redskins won three Super Bowl titles in nine seasons from 1982-1991.

<![CDATA[The Best Detroit Lions of All Time]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/crowdranked-list/best-detroit-lions-of-all-time
This is a list of the best Detroit Lions of all time. Formed in 1929 in Portsmouth, Ohio, the team known as the Lions put down roots in Detroit in 1934. Despite the failings of the past half century, the Lions have won four NFL championships with the last being in 1957. Despite having only one playoff win since then, the Lions have had several Hall of Fame players on its roster, including debatebly the best running back of all time. There is a long period where the Lions didn't have any of the best players in team history, but in recent years, the Lions have made up for their lean years by drafting some of the best young talent in football.

The 1950s and early 1960s were a prosperous time for the Lions. With quarterback Bobby Layne at the helm, these Lions teams featured some of the best players ever. Doak Walker, Dick "Night Train," Lem Barney and Joe Schmidt all played for the Lions during this time. In 1989, the Lions drafted running back Barry Sanders, who is not only one of the most popular star players the Lions have ever had, but one of the best ever. Those Lions teams also had great Lions players like Herman Moore as well. Today, Lions stars Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and Ndamukong Suh all have potential to be some of the best players in Lions history.

This is the list of the greatest Detroit Lions of all time. If you think someone should be on this list of the best Lions of all time, then feel free to add him to the list. Vote or rerank this list of the greatest Detroit Lions ever.

<![CDATA[The 24 Worst Arena Football League Team Names]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/arena-football-league-team-names/jordan-bates
Arena Football is something we've all probably heard of. It's the Arena Football League and there are teams all over the country. There's even the Arena Bowl, which is like their Super Bowl. The only difference between the NFL and AFL is that we've all not only heard of the NFL, we've seen an NFL game. We've probably been to one in person. We probably even have a favorite team, and even if we don't, we're at least aware of some or most of the teams.

That's why this list exists. The teams in the AFL deserve to be written about. They deserve to be talked about. They deserve to be examined in a scholarly manner and made fun of.

The following is simply a list of some of the current and defunct Arena Football teams and my thoughts about those teams as far as their names are concerned.  Vote for the most embarassing name in the AFL.

It's American football and it isn't the NFL. Everyone WANTS to make fun of it. It's their fault for making it so easy.
The 24 Worst Arena Football League Team Names,

Los Angeles Kiss
Turns out the band KISS owns this team. Go figure.
New York CityHawks
Shedding light on the often overlooked hawk problem running rampant in the Big Apple.
San Jose SaberCats
Alright cool your jets, San Jose. You can't just go around slamming two slightly aggressive words together.

Is it a saber-toothed tiger? Is it a cat with a sword? Is it a sword made of cats?

It is your responsibility to answer these questions now.
New Jersey Red Dogs
Seems like they threw darts at a wall for this one. The New Jersey (Color, Animals).
New Orleans VooDoo
Admittedly, this is better than the Pelicans.

Admittedly, it also just makes me think of The Princess and the Frog.
New Orleans Night
Night. You know, like, dark and brooding. Like... night. Like an 11-year-old emo girl.
Dallas Texans
WE. GET. IT.
Sacramento Attack
Euphemism for genital warts.

Ohhhhhhhh...cuz you make cars.

Well, you used to.

<![CDATA[Who Will be the First Pick in the 2015 NFL Draft?]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/2015-nfl-draft-first-pick/the-120-sports
It's a burning question that has been on the minds of both NFL insiders and fans alike: who will be the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on the clock - and as of now - they appear to be keeping that selection. The team has plenty of options when it comes picking a player that will immediately change their fortunes. There are two solid quarterback options with Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota as the prime candidates to be picked at the top. That said, neither is a can't miss prospect that would leave little question of whether or not they would be a franchise player. 

Though it's popular to pick a quarterback at the top of the draft, there are other extremely talented players as well. For now, we'll list five of the prime prospects, but, that doesn't mean a team won't trade up and shock everyone involved with the draft.
Who Will be the First Pick in the 2015 NFL Draft?,

Marcus Mariota

<![CDATA[The Absolute Worst Hairstyles in NFL History]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/worst-hairstyles-in-nfl-history/brandon-oliver
The NFL is a statement league in so many ways. From tattoos, to touchdown celebrations, to extreme hair styles, the NFL has it all when it comes to making a style statement. Despite wearing helmets, NFL players have always managed to have their hair become a part of their personal story, but not always in a good way. These athletes with bad hair will go down in history as the football players who took to the gridiron with some of the worst hairstyles in all of sports.

From Johnny Unitas and his legendary buzz cut, to Tom Brady's Bieber haircut, and the Pacific Islanders in the league today who wear their extremely thick and long hair with pride, bad hairstyles have carved out a place in the history of the NFL. Like with any sport, there are some players with great hair and some players who were not so blessed. And then there is always that the group of players who have great hair, but chose to make some very questionable decisions with it, whether turning to dyes, horrible designs, or ragged looks.

The number of awful hairstyles to choose from throughout the history of the National Football League is actually quite remarkable and most of these unfortunate styles cannot be hidden by simply wearing a helmet. While hair might tell a story for some of the players, it doesn’t always work out, and the results are often the worst hairstyles in all of professional football.
The Absolute Worst Hairstyles in NFL History,

Antonio Garay
Antonio Garay has had a number of crazy haircuts, which are usually paired with his facial hair to form an interesting look encompassing his entire head. He usually adds some color to all the crazy designs because shaving the face of another man into the back of his head just isn't enough.

Chris Kemoeatu
A thick beard, shaved sides, and thick, fluffy hair on the top and in the back all combine to give Chris Kemoeatu an interesting look. Tongan players often have a lot of hair and Kemoeatu is no different. But it's the style in which he wears his voluminous hair is what makes him stand out from the crowd. it isn't often that a Tongan mullet pops up, but when it does, it's a sight to see.

Freddie Mitchell
Freddie Mitchell was a star wide receiver at UCLA and had a decent, but mostly pedestrian NFL career. While he was never a star in the NFL, Mitchell still found a way to get into the spotlight. He was most well known for his wild personality and his outlandish hairstyles.

Pat McQuistan
No matter how offensive lineman Pat McQuistan chose to wear his hair, it's likely that he would have made this list. NFL rookie hazing made a serious impact and the result is what can be seen above. Pretty!

Tim Tebow
Tim Tebow's rookie hazing resulted in this fabulous hair cut, courtesy of his teammates in Denver. They left the beard on Tebow's face, but shaved the entire top of his head, leaving a halo of hair around the outside.

Fui Vakapuna
Putting Fui Vakapuna's hairstyle into words is a daunting task, so feel free to stare at this beauty as long as necessary and try to come up with the best explanation for what exactly he has going on above the shoulders.

Mike Iupati
At first glance, Zak Keasy doesn't look like your average Ivy Leaguer. Based on his long, thick dreads, trying to convince anyone that Keasy went to Princeton might be a lost cause. He did in fact attend the Ivy League school, but that doesn't give him a free pass on the hair.

Preston Parker
Preston Parker decided to go with multiple thick braids that stick straight out of his dome. It's unclear whether or not he ever wore this hairstyle under his helmet in a game, but if he did, it would be nice to know how he got all that to fit underneath a tight helmet.

Lucas Nix
By all accounts, Lucas Nix had worn his hair in a respectable manner until he made it to the NFL. Upon joining the Oakland Raiders, Nix was greeted with one of the traditional rookie hazing traditionss. The beefy offensive lineman had the top (and a few other random patches) of his head shaved. The result was memorable, and truly awful.

Dion Jordan
Dion Jordan was the number three pick in the 2013 NFL Draft because of his potential as a pass rusher. However, his development hasn't happened as quickly as the Miami Dolphins were hoping it would. Perhaps all the dye on his head is keeping his brain from operating at the level necessary to succeed in the NFL?

<![CDATA[24 Reasons USC Is Better Than UCLA]]> http://www.ranker-dev.com/list/reasons-usc-is-better-than-ucla/danielle-dauenhauer
Saying that USC is better than UCLA is like saying the sky is blue - most people will accept this as fact while a select few will try and tell you that sometimes it's cloudy so you're wrong. THOSE people are Bruins, and they are salty they are not Trojans.

The USC-UCLA rivalry is one of the oldest, most storied rivalries in college sports (one of the biggest rivalries in ANY sports, for that matter) and those in the middle of it will never hesitate to tell you which side they support. As a Trojan, I will give the evilest eye to even my closet friends when they utter any matter of sympathetic words about that crappy state school on the other side of town. As a love letter to USC, I have created this list of reasons USC is superior to UCLA.

From bars to sports to famous alumni, there's no shortage of reasons to point out that the rivalry between USC and UCLA heavily favors USC as the better school. Trojans are powerful awesome, as you will soon learn reading this list of reasons USC is greater than UCLA. You can feel free to vote for the most apparent reasons Trojans are better than Bruins, or you can just nod and agree with all these reasons UCLA sucks.
24 Reasons USC Is Better Than UCLA,

With regards to their mascot, they apparently believe quantity trumps quality.
The UCLA History Project details how Joe and Josephine, the Bruin mascots, evolved from a tradition of having live bears perform at home football games to entertain the crowd. Fitting seeing as their football program often bears an uncanny resemblance to a circus.
It is impossible to stumble from campus housing to a football game.
Unless, of course, you want to take the 405 to the 10 to the 110 to the Rose Bowl on foot. In which case, game on.
Their mascot is a bear? That's so every team in the UC system.

Okay, not every school, but both Cal and UC Riverside have bears for mascots making the Bruin as unoriginal as every director who comes out of their film school.


You want to get a drink in the area around UCLA? Better put on your anti-scumbag jacket.
According to Complex.com, 5 of the 25 Douchiest Bars in all of Los Angeles are located within spitting distance of the UCLA campus.
The Heisman trophy. Singular.
UCLA's only Heisman was produced in 1967 by Gary Beban, according to Heisman.com. He played with the Washington Redskins until 1970 and then became a real estate agent. USC's Heisman winners may be (alleged) murderers and lovers of the Kardashians, but at least there's been more than one.
Without the USC film school, there would be no Star Wars.
Legit. Without the professors of USC to guide him, George Lucas might have started in chronological order with Epidode 1 (The Phantom Menace, aka The One with Jar Jar Binks). You're welcome, world.
USC is UCLA's only rival.
Probably because they're so close we can't ignore them completely. Everyone else in the country, however, understands they are a non-threat.
The only way UCLA could win a conference title in football was for the division to split into two during a time of USC bowl sanctions.
And they still finished that season with a losing record (6-8). CollegeFootballPoll.com records the Bruins' last division title win as happening in 1998.
U$C
My keyboard doesn't even have a cents symbol to replace UCLA's "C" with. That's how little it cares about UCLA.
20 years.
That's the head start USC athletes had on UCLA when tallying the gold medal streak at the Summer Olympic games. Yahoo Sports reports the USC streak is now at 100 years.
