Marion Barber Retires From The NFL At Age 28

When Marion Barber played football for the Dallas Cowboys it looked like we would see him for a long time to come. Barber had some great runs and it seemed everything was going well for him. Injuries and getting cut by the Cowboys landed him in Chicago, but when the Bears signed Michael Bush, Barber decided that he had seen a enough and called it a career. Barber combined quickness with punishing running that left defenders feeling they just got hit by a truck.

Marion Barber signature run was probably against the New England Patriots. It is a run that had to be seen to believe. I posted it below for everyone to check out. Marion Barber is only 28 years old, so maybe he will return you just do not know anymore. Check out the video below of the amazing run he had against the Pats.

NFL Fumbles Away The Hall Of Fame Game

The NFL has canceled the Hall Of Fame game that was slated for Aug. 7 pitting the St. Louis Rams and the Chicago Bears. This will mark the first time in 45 years that this annual game will be missed. It's a financial blow to the Hall of Fame, which could lose about $1.5 million out of its $20 million annual operating budget. And it's a big loss for the community, which gets more than just a financial boost from the event. The community rallies around this event and the enshirement will take place on Aug. 6th, but the football game will be missing.

In my opinion the NFL fumbled this away and should be ashamed of itself for doing it to the loyal fans in Canton, Ohio. If the NFL wanted to play the game they could have even if it would have only been a lite scrimmage. The City of Canton and people deserve lot better from the NFL. They should hang their head in shame that they let this game get away from them. Canton has always been their for the NFL, but now the NFL tells Canton too bad.
