It's the first day back from spring break and, as undergraduates in shorts and sundresses loll on the lawn outside, three Tulane football players are seated around a U-shaped table in a small meeting room. With marker in hand, sports agent Martin Fischman stands before them at a whiteboard and poses a question:"Ribbon sells for 19 cents a yard. How much will you save by buying 30 yards for $5?"There was no such scene in "Jerry Maguire," the 1996 movie that shaped many sports fans' perceptions of NFL agents. But here, on the second floor of Tulane's student union, the 34-year-old Fischman, a real-life Jerry Maguire, doubles as teacher, coach and cheerleader in leading a 40-minute test-prep session for the Wonderlic exam, which three of his clients will take the next morning as part of Tulane's pro day for prospective NFL employers.Working from a stack of sample tests, Fischman gives examples of the types of math, vocabulary and reasoning questions that defensive tackle Sean Wilson and … [Read more...] about ‘Super agents’ rep 75 percent of NFL players.

ORLANDO — It would have helped Pat Shurmur to have NFL tape of Davis Webb playing quarterback to have a better handle on whether the Giants even needed to draft a QB at No. 2 overall. But Shurmur doesn’t have that, through no fault of his own, so he’s doing the next best thing: evaluating Webb’s college tape in comparison to the members of this year’s class, then giving Webb one more opportunity in a pre-draft minicamp to wow Giants brass before they enter the war room. “As I was watching this year’s quarterbacks, I went back and watched (Webb’s) college film to compare him to the guys coming out this year, and I went back and revisited my notes from (scouting) him (for the Minnesota Vikings) a year ago. We had him rated highly,” Shurmur said Tuesday morning at the NFL coaches breakfast at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes. “The unfortunate thing for me is that there’s just not a lot of him playing football in a Giants … [Read more...] about How Giants will evaluate talent they already have in QB Davis Webb ahead of NFL draft

It seems like a given that Bill Belichick is the greatest NFL coach of all time.Search Google and you’ll find plenty of stories telling you so. Some even anoint him the best coach ever in any sport in this country’s history.But we might just want to tap the brakes, because Vince Lombardi’s case remains strong.Let’s start by saying that Belichick is exceptional, extraordinary, transcendent, whatever superlative you choose.His abilities to identify opponents’ strengths and weaknesses, and to find ways to take away what they do best and exploit their soft spots, is off the charts. His New England Patriots teams almost always play good defense even when their personnel isn’t that good.But let’s not let time dim Lombardi’s standing, either.
