NFL Stars Trading Places
In this week's Sports Illustrated, Greg Bishop and Emily Kaplan asked some of the NFL's biggest stars which position they really wanted to play. J.J. Watt throwing bombs to DeAndre Hopkins? Russell Wilson joining Richard Sherman and the Legion of Boom? Check out the gallery above of how those guys and more would look in their new positions. (Click here for full-size gallery.)
I Want A Recount
NBA writer Rob Mahoney and tofu enthusiast Ben Golliver have been ranking the Top 100 players in the NBA for SI.com. The top-10 will be revealed Thursday. Here is where you can catch up on the honorable mentions and players 11 to 100. (Dwyane Wade at 30? That hurts.)
We Are So Close
The wait is almost over. College football returns Thursday night. Soon it will be socially acceptable for you to wear your alma mater's garish colors and drink cheap beer without the judgmental comments of your sophisticated adult friends. Help yourself get ready for this week's biggest games with SI.com's college football podcast.
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
Australian model Miranda Kerr is this afternoon's LLOD. The Victoria Secret model will be the center of her own weekend special, The Story of Miranda Kerr, on Fashion TV this weekend. (Click here for full-size gallery.)
Everyone is scared of the NFL
The New York Times reports Sony Pictures Entertainment altered parts of the new film Concussion to avoid protests from the NFL. The trailer for the new movie, starring Will Smith, debuted over at The MMQB. Also be sure to check out Peter King's interview with director Peter Landesman.
Hulu In These Streets
Hulu is launching a commercial-free version of its service for $11.99 a month. That means Netflix, Amazon and now Hulu will all be offering commercial-free streaming options. Netflix has always been ad free and is cheaper than Hulu, but Hulu will let you watch many current shows a day after airing. Like a normal person, I only use Amazon Prime for the two-day shipping.
Don't Be That Guy
A bonus gallery today. Check out these alternate reality Sports Illustrated covers featuring some of the NFL's best quarterbacks.
