- Let's Not Dismiss the Packers Just Yet
I have to take this opportunity to own up to a mistake I made last week. On the webcast I do with my friend Patrick weekly, I picked the Minnesota Vikings to defeat the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon. The Packers defeated the Vikings 30-13 in Minneapolis, pulling into a first-place tie atop the NFC North division. So yes, I missed that pick, wh
- What Happened To All of the Dolphins talk?
Remember back on October 5, when the Miami Dolphins decided to fire head coach Joe Philbin and gave the job to tight ends coach Dan Campbell? Granted, it was probably time for Philbin to go, since the team didn't make the playoffs during his three-year tenure, but it was assumed things were about to change for the better when Campbell got the job.
- All Spoils Go To the Royals
Things have been pretty busy for me lately, but that does not mean I haven't been paying attention to what has happened in the world of sports. With that said, everyone knows I normally come on this forum and give props to teams who win championships. I have not had the chance to say congratulations to the Kansas City Royals for winning the World S
- Patience will pay off for Longhorns under Strong
For the first time in a long time, all is well at the University of Texas at Austin. The football team, who has been under heavy scrutiny after years of not living up to the lofty standards a school like Texas should be held to, is in the middle of a bye week after winning the Red River Shootout (I know it's known as the Showdown these days) over O
- Could this be the year the Bengals live up to the hype?
As the Cincinnati Bengals prepare for their contest with the Buffalo Bills on the road Sunday afternoon, the air around them has a different feel. Expectations for this team have not changed, as the Bengals have been looked at for years as a team that can make a run for the Super Bowl. In the previous four seasons, Cincinnati has made the playoffs,
- Could This Be The Best Team Peyton Manning Has Been On?
Throughout the first three weeks of the NFL's regular season, one of the biggest stories has been the status of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. There have been loud whispers saying we are seeing the end of Manning as we know him. After he failed to throw a touchdown pass against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1, it was time to declare one
- The Time to Break Up the Nationals Has Arrived
Remember this date: January 21, 2015. That was the day the Washington Nationals signed free agent pitcher Max Scherzer to a seven-year, $210 million contract. When news of this signing became mainstream, it was almost a forgone conclusion, at least in most people's minds, Washington would represent the National League in the World Series in October
- My Top 5 NFL Teams To Watch Out for This 2015 Season
After months of deflategate, court room battles between the NFL and Patriots QB Tom Brady, and speculation about Brady possibly missing the first 4 games of the season, the start of the 2015 NFL regular season is finally here and for me personally, it couldn't come at a better time. I can't believe the 2015 season is here. It just seemed like the o

After 8 months of waiting patiently and having no football to watch, college football fans can finally rejoice and celebrate as their favorite sport comes back. The 2015 college football season has officially began and based on what could happen this year, it could be as exciting and dramatic as last season was. Like any other year, this college fo
- The rise and free fall of Trent Richardson
When running back Trent Richardson was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the third pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, it appeared to be a smart choice at the time. The Browns were looking at Richardson as one of the cornerstones the franchise could build around, and why wouldn't they think that way? Richardson was coming off of a great junior season at
- Has RGIII officially hit lame duck status?
Remember back in 2012, when the Washington Redskins traded their whole future for the right to take quarterback Robert Griffin III with the second pick in the NFL Draft? The franchise, along with the great fans in the nation's capital, had hopes of Griffin III being the main building block to bring the team back to prominence. Based on the QB out o
- Finally, some good news in the NFL
After last year's rough campaign off the field, followed by an offseason filled with daily reports on Deflate-gate, the National Football league finally provided a little bit of good news over the weekend. Ironically, positivity came from where it should, on the field. We saw the first set of preseason games, which is a sign of we are getting close
