    Last season, young Reds left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani was viewed as ready for a full-time spot in the rotation and a central piece in the club's plans. It enabled Cincinnati to bid farewell to Bronson Arroyo and feel good about its starting five. Then Cingrani struggled early in the year and missed most of the season with a shoulder injury. Before the Winter Meetings last week, he appeared to be on the outside looking in -- the sixth man on the depth chart for the rotation.

My computer is very uncooperative at the moment and so I am limited in the number of things I can have open at one time to be able to flip back and forth among them. This is either going to require significant professional treatment after the Holidays or perhaps a new machine. In any event, last week’s results boiled down to the weekly Mythical Picks going 9-7-1 bringing the total season record to 103-137-5. The Curmudgeon Central Coin Flip Games were 3-1-0 for the week edging the coin closer to the expected .500 level. The season total…

    18 Dec 2014 | 7:59 am
    A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that there had been stories in Chicago that the Bears had contemplated benching Jay Cutler back in Week 12. I said then that the idea of turning the season over to Jimmy Clausen with 5 or 6 games still to play would not have been a positive step for the team. Well, the Bears are now out of the playoffs by a significant margin and there are only 2 games left on the schedule… Last night, Adam Schefter reported on ESPN that the Bears would indeed put Jay Cutler on the bench this weekend and start Jimmy Clausen against the Lions. I am not going to try to…

    Just as it makes no sense to put out pre-season rankings for college football and basketball teams in advance of any live action, it always seems to me to be premature to think about which coaches in the NFL might not be back with their teams the next year until about now. For about half the teams in the NFL, the die is cast; those are the ones that will definitely not be in the playoffs. There are still a few teams clinging to playoff hopes by their collective fingernails. The playoff coaches are most likely to be returning. Therefore, I want to take a quick tour around the league and ponder…

The tournament he won recently is just a tad less widely known than the Buick Open. Daly won the Beko Classic. The Beko Classic is a tournament held at the Gloria Golf Club in Belek,, Turkey. For those of you who did not major in geography, Belek is a city on the south coast of Turkey about 500 miles southeast of Istanbul. The tournament was a 54-hole event and Daly’s first prize purse came to $8,000. In 2004, the prize money for the Buick Open was $4.5M. Using the…

    Playoff re-seeding in the NFL has always been a hot topic every time someone brings it up. Whether it’s something to do with a double digit playoff team missing the playoffs, or a division champion with a worse record than a wild card team hosting a playoff game, this is a topic that forever will be water cooler talk. Until now. I wrote recently about how great parity is in the NFL and how it makes it better than any other sport. Teams can go from worst to first in just one season. Except parity was never meant to include a horrible, and just plain sad division. I’m looking at you…

    With the rumors of San Francisco 49ers head coach, Jim Harbaugh leaving at the end of this season lets take a look at their Harbaugh could possibly land. Oakland Raiders: First team I believe where Harbaugh will go to is the Raiders. Harbaugh loves the bay area, he has mentioned it in dozens of interviews and press conferences. Lets not forget four years ago Harbaugh left Stanford University to come to San Francisco, which is less than a 40-minute drive. San Francisco to Oakland is only an 8-mile drive. Is his love for the bay area enough? How about having the first-round draft pick? With…

This season has been all over the place (you may have seen me write that before) as it is, so the win wasn’t exactly a shock. Shocking is when the Jaguars top the Giants and the Saints grab a win…on the road! Since the Cardinals did in fact lose, the Top Five saw a lot of movement this week. The playoff picture is starting to unfold more and more. I will be talking about all the teams in the race in this week’s rankings. Well, most of them anyways. I dove into the…

I'm pretty great, Jim, and I think you are, too. Which is why right after I climbed through this second-floor window I've forced open using a crowbar, I was sure to wipe off the windowsill. I sprayed down the window, too. With Windex. No streaks for my good friend Jim Harbaugh. I've already made sure…

    HELLO JACKSONVILLE TURN UP JACKSONVILLE What doe this have to do with college football right now, you ask? Our hangover. That's how this has anything to do with college football, and the meetings we're sitting through today in lieu of dicking around on the internet all day. Also this provides us with a reminder that Georgia lost to Florida this year and lost very badly to a very bad team. They lost. The Bulldogs. In football. Aspirin. THE GAWD BO PELINI. The best way to exit a job is the Pelini way, forever, and make sure someone tapes it. WE MAY BE APPROACHING THE GRUDEN ENVELOPE. Michigan…

So we're giving you the chance to identify which of these quotes from Pelini or from Joe Pesci in one of his many fine movie roles. (Answers at the bottom of course.) 1. "I'd rather fucking work at McDonald's than work with some of those guys. Not that there is anything bad about working at McDonald's." 2.

  • What Are Critics Who Saw ‘The Interview’ Saying About It?

    Dariel Figueroa
    19 Dec 2014 | 3:30 pm
    Sony Despite what North Korea wants, despite what its mercenary hacking army wants, what the Supreme Being Leader Of Almighty Power Of God Voice wants, what even some pundits from Fox News want — somehow, someway, we’re going to get The Interview. Because, as Mr. Universe said in the indispensable cinematic marvel known as Serenity, “You can’t stop the signal.” (He also said, “Guy killed me with a sword, Mal,” but that’s neither here nor there.) The film is out there in the ether; it’s draining itself down the sloshing path of a rocky…

    Sony The Order: 1886 is looking fairly solid, but it seems like Sony is looking to drum up interest in the game with something other than regular old gameplay footage. They’ve put together a faux news report about a mysterious skeleton being discovered in London that’s pretty realistic and actually quite creepy (it was originally released in Japan, hence the Japanese subtitles). Check out report from “BCO News” below… Wouldn’t mind if Sony popped off a few more of these viral vids – as long at they’re not hinting at a modern-day component to The Order. Had…

    The Tennessee Volunteers' 2014 regular season is in the books, and now the team is preparing for a matchup with the Iowa Hawkeyes in the TaxSlayer Bowl on Jan. 2. The Vols did well to achieve a 6-6 record in 2014, and considering how many freshmen head coach Butch Jones played throughout the season, it took some serious overachievement from a few position groups for the team to break even on the year. Of course, those overachieving groups were also paired with units that simply didn't live up to expectations, whether it was because of youth, inexperience or injuries—or in some cases,…

    Well, there goes that golden piece of parental logic.  For years, we’ve been arguing, imploring and threatening our kids to get off their Xbox, PS4 or even Wiis (are those still around?) and get outside for some fresh air and reality.  It isn’t healthy, we argued, to sit in front of that TV and play video games for hours.  While we still have the cardiovascular argument in our corner, new research just confirmed that gaming actually improves our kids’ ability to learn new sensorimotor skills.Playing “first person” games, like Call of Duty or Madden, drops the user…

    On the road to sports success, young athletes need two ingredients, innate skills and the willingness and determination to get better.  We all know boys and girls who showed early promise that got them noticed but then didn’t have the drive to practice every day to develop that talent.  Often labeled lazy or unmotivated, the assumption was that they chose their own path by not working hard.  However, new research shows evidence that genetics may play a role not only in the natural abilities of a developing superstar but also in their practice persistence and…

    Going into the start of football season, there is plenty of expert commentary on what makes up the “right stuff” when evaluating quarterbacks. Everything from arm strength to height to foot skills to the size of their hands was measured and dissected to find the magic combination of variables. While the body mechanics of delivering a football on target are vital, QBs rely even more on their vision both before and after the ball is snapped.It’s not just knowing where and when to look at an opposing defense but also understanding what to look for across the line.

    As productive human athletes, we just assume that we can knock down any walls put in front of us and conquer new feats of greatness if "we just put our mind to it."  Our conscious brain sets goals, gives pep talks and convinces us that with the right training plan, we can finish a race of any distance. But, when we're stretching our training run farther than ever before, the little voice in our head pops up to try to talk some sense into us; "that's enough for today" or "there's a lot of pain happening right now, time to quit."  As I discussed in last week's post about the…

    For many individuals, particularly under the age of 25, earning a career as a professional poker player seems incredibly appealing. For players with the ideal set of skills, a successful professional poker career typically doesn’t come with the boredom of a 9-to-5 existence — a lifestyle that many of us can only dream of. And let’s not forget the opportunity for international travel. However, the world of professional poker is not for the faint of heart, and even the most experienced players may take a break from the game at one point or another to explore other career options.

    I made the mistake of watching a few Boston Celtics games this past week (the wife was at school/clinical and there was no college football games during the week) and was absolutely disgusted by the effort put forth by Rajon Rondo. After eight years in the NBA, Rondo is in position for free agency this off-season. In the last four seasons Rondo--rather than entering his prime from age 25 to 28--instead had injury-plagued campaigns topped off by his missing almost all of last season. Rondo has gone from one of the five best point guards in the NBA at age 23 in 2009-10 to a 25% three-point…

Are the players buying in and engaging in the team concept? Like the patriots, Packer, and Broncos. Talented…

Yes and no.  Peer pressure can destroy a team.   Team culture will dictate the outcome.  Culture and work ethic are viral. When you have individual players that negatively influence the team, you lose the team.  Do you have a team virus? As a coach, you want your players to talk, to communicate, to give each other information and feedback about the situation at hand. However, you don't want players to "throw each other under the bus" during…

You’re not going to be very consistent, The good teams establish how they’re going to go about their business. They do it day after day. That’s how you build your mental toughness, that’s how you build your conditioning, that’s how you build your discipline, and that’s how you win.“You start off the season, and you have everybody saying they want to win a championship, but very few are willing to pay that price every single day.

  • WNBA makes rule changes for the 2015 season

    18 Dec 2014 | 6:19 pm
    Here are the changes that the WNBA made for next summer. On Thursday, the WNBA announced some new rule changes for the 2015 season. The most significant changes will involve the increased use of instant replay Next summer, instant replay triggers (for out of bounds, restricted area violations, shot clock violations) can now be used by officials during the last two minutes of a quarter and for each overtime period. Before, they could only do so in the last minute of a quarter and overtime periods. Officials can also use instant replay to review all off-ball fouls, whether on offense or…
  • What should we take from Miller's firing?

    18 Dec 2014 | 9:37 am
    This post will start cynical  (it has not been a great week for discrimination against women in sports) but I will try to end on an up(ish) note.So we can now add to the list of things that will get female coaches fired/dismissed/forced into retirement: having too high of a salary. This joins such explanations (which range in legitimacy--I'm not commenting on whether or not they are true, just that they have been offered in some suspect dismissals): having a family, not having a family, pulling a player's shirt, banning white bread, reporting gender inequity,…
  • Stanford Can’t Score Against Chattanooga

    17 Dec 2014 | 10:41 pm
    So the Stanford Women’s Basketball Team traveled to Tennessee and played an unranked team they have never played before, and…lost. Stanford, ranked #7 lost to Chattanooga (UTC) 54-46 (and just what is a “Moc,” that school’s nickname?).So what happened is…well, I don’t know what happened really, as my boss pulled me into an impromptu meeting at 3 PM Stanford time, just as the game was starting (and we hate these starts during work hours). When I came out, Stanford was down by 1, 29-28 at the half despite going on a 10-0 run.
  • LSU's Sheila Boykin defeats life-threatening illness

    Here's a day-brightener:As the effects of the syndrome left her body, Boykin was determined to come back. Collins and the team’s staff put her on an aggressive rehab program, as the muscles in her legs had wasted away. She started lifting weights to get the muscle back, and soon, she was practicing again.Her coach was impressed, but not surprised. “Sheila has a different level of fight in her,” says Caldwell. “That’s one of the first things that attracted us to her when we were recruiting her. She’s not a quitter. Even when things were looking as bleak as…

    17 Dec 2014 | 8:12 am
    Tweet During the Black Friday / Cyber Monday marketing blitz, several teams used the offer of “No Ticket Fees!” as their main promotional message, and for good reason. Customers HATE paying ticket fees, and the removal of these fees as a way to “discount without discounting” leads to strong conversion rates and ticket sales. Well the fact that this works should tell us something about the model teams use with their ticketing partner to sell tickets. Simply put… If consumers hate ticket fees, then let’s stop using them!

    Here goes nothing. I'm not predicting who wins shootouts or not, so this is regulation points only. Add in six points to every team if you want to give them all an average number of shootout wins. Since coaching and goalie changes are typically the biggest wild cards (i.e. Bishop/Cooper in Tampa and Roy in Colorado last year) when it comes to predictions, figured I'd note those as well. And

    6 Dec 2014 | 3:05 am
    JASON Gillespie has urged Australia’s pacemen to maintain their trademark edge in order to honour fallen mate Phillip Hughes against India in the series opener at Adelaide Oval. While former Australian speedster Gillespie envisions 26-Test batsman Hughes eventually being immortalised at Adelaide Oval, there’s little room for sentiment in the make-up of a fast bowler. Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Peter Siddle and/or Josh Hazlewood will be forced to find the fire within from Tuesday against India despite Hughes’s tragic end.Gillespie was devastated to leave close mate and former…

Because any sign of weakness will be ruthlessly exposed, according to former Australia coach John Buchanan.While Clarke’s side will be motivated to honour Phillip Hughes, Buchanan says if they go into the five-day match not fully prepared mentally and physically they risk letting their late former teammate down.

    “My guys are legit, end of story” Bobby Shmurda and 12 of his associates–GS9 crew members–were arrested at Quad Studios Tuesday night as the result of a long-term investigation conducted by the city’s special narcotics prosecutor, Bridget Brennan.

    The Red Sox have traded third baseman Will Middlebrooks to the San Diego Padres for catcher Ryan Hanigan.  Middlebrooks became a trade chip once the Red Sox signed Pablo Sandovol to play third base.

  • Goodbye to Allen Webster

    Michael Passanisi
    17 Dec 2014 | 7:34 am
    Along with Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster was the first of the “prospect hurlers” to be dealt away by the Sox. Obtained from the Dodgers in the 2012 megatrade, Webster pitched well at Pawtucket the last two years but was wildly inconsistent at the big league level. Nearly everyone who saw Webster pitch was impressed by his stuff. Signed by LA in 08, the 24-year-old pitched well in every level of minor league competition. In 7 seasons, he went 46-33 with an ERA of 3.40. His ratio of hits to innings pitched and walks to strikeouts were also very good. Webster may have fallen victim…

This is understandable; with Rafael Nadal out due to an appendix operation, Djokovic’s competition has been diluted. It seems as if the main challenge will come from veteran Roger Federer and UK hopeful Andy Murray. As things stand the pre-tournament betting, Djokovic is a 5/6 chance, followed by Roger Federer at a best-priced 4-1 and Andy Murray available at a maximum of 7-1.

  • Football Trick Plays: 5 of the Best Ever

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:10 am
    When football trick plays work, they’re a lot of fun to watch. A well-run trick play might make the local news, and the better ones can go from a lot of hits on YouTube to a viral sensation. Trick plays can also change the outcome of games. In addition to plays resulting in scores, the plays can be demoralizing for opponents. From PeeWee games to the NFL, you’ll find coaches trying to outfox the opponents with some trickery. Personally, I’m not a big fan of the trick plays that attempt to deceive opponents by pretending that play has been stopped. Perhaps you’ve seen…

I know the “West Coast Offense” term is vague by now because of how many changes have been made to it by different coaches, but the offense’s foundation is grounded in rhythm passing and its precision. If it’s a three-step drop, the ball goes here. If it’s a five-step drop, the ball goes there.

    Louis van Gaal has told his predecessor Alex Ferguson he is still far from happy with Manchester United’s performances despite an impressive run that has catapulted them into the Premier League top three. At least the United manager looks set to have record signing Angel di Maria available for the busy holiday schedule of games after his recovery from a hamstring tear. But, despite visiting Aston Villa at the weekend with six consecutive victories behind him, van Gaal insists he is still waiting for his team to put together the “perfect” performance. “I’m not only focused on results…

    European PGA golfer Nick Faldo has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Back in 2008, Faldo made a comment about Sergio Garcia and he has been paying for it ever since. First, fellow European Ian Poutler threw Faldo under the bus in his autobiographical book. Now another European golfer is upset with Faldo as well. Sam Torrance was part of that 2008 Ryder Cup team and he hasn’t forgotten about those comments either.

Wilson is in the last year of his rookie contract and most expect him to possibly be the highest paid QB in the NFL. So with his potential payday on the horizon, Wilson has started to make moves and it involves one of his agents. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Wilson has parted ways with agent Bus Cook.

    In the wake of the Chicago Bears' announcement that backup QB Jimmy Clausen would replace long-time starter Jay Cutler for Sunday's game against the Lions, it made me wonder what was really behind the move. Although the real reason is probably pretty straight forward, something like wanting him to remain healthy so they could trade him and his league-high contract after the season, it's possible there are more subtle reasons.After starting his career in Denver, it has become clear that orange just isn't his color. Of course that rules out a number of teams for a trade, including Miami,…

    The college bowl season kicks off in a couple of days, so we're left with one game tonight. Not a great one, not even a good one, but a game nonetheless. I'm hoping it's warm enough in Jacksonville so they show a lot of shots of the swimming pool in the end zone seats. Tennessee (2 - 12) 17 @ Jacksonville (2 - 12) 20: The season is winding down for most teams, but it's been over for a while for the Jaguars and Titan, who meet tonight with identically terrible records. They are also pretty close in their stats, with both giving up over 70 yards per game than they gain. That's really no way to…

    Not a bad week, going 14 - 2 after a frustrating 8 - 8 the week before. I wanted to go with the Bills, but just couldn't make myself count on their offense to produce points. Of course, had Jordy Nelson been able to hold on to a sure touchdown catch, the result might have been different. Without any real upsets, several teams were able to clinch playoff berths, but home field is still up for grabs in both conferences, as well as a number of divisions. Perhaps the most compelling race, despite the lousy records of the teams involved, in the NFC South, where 6 - 8 New Orleans sits on top. But 5…

    Three games left and only the New England Patriots look like a lock to win their division. We also have a race where the best record in the NFC South can only be 8 - 8, but in all likelihood won't be. When in week 15 we have a 4 - 8 - 1 Carolina team still in contention is strange, if not unprecedented. Meanwhile, in Cleveland, Johnny Manziel gets his first NFL start with his Browns probably needing a win to stay alive for a playoff spot, one of several 7 - 6 teams that face the same challenge. Pittsburgh (8 - 5) 37 @ Atlanta (5 - 8) 31: The Falcons have won three of their last five games to…

    Arizona (10 - 3) 16 @ St. Louis (6 - 7) 23: The St. Louis defense has recorded consecutive shutouts over Oakland and Washington. Not exactly Denver and New England, except they held the Broncos high flying offense to seven points. It's a short week for the Cardinals, who had a tough win against the Chiefs on Sunday. Jeff Fisher has the Rams playing great football, and even though they are out of the playoff hunt, they'll have a lot of input into the race. The offensive and defensive rankings for these teams are deceiving, since the Cardinals racked up good passing stats behind now injured…

    Are you a high school football player who wants to play in college? Do you think that you have the necessary athletic skills to play at the next level?

    The shutout by 24 points that the St. Louis Rams handed the Washington Redskins this past Sunday was about as frustrating a game as the team has played so far. Quarterback Colt McCoy was sacked six times. His replacement (when he had to leave the game due to a neck injury), Robert Griffin, III, was sacked as well. The running game was non-existent, the passing game was inconsistent and the defense featured the “same old thing” in terms of secondary breakdowns and poor tackling that spectators have become used to.

Feats of strength and coordination dazzle the eye in performances of spirit and positive energy. The sheer difficulty of the routines seen at national cheerleading competitions seem to dispel any prejudices against the sport; old ideas of pom poms waving are left in the dust.

  • Shoulder Mobility: Two Exercises to Improve Your Mobility

    High School Illustrated
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:07 am
    Good shoulder mobility can not only improve shoulder function, but also improve performance and limit injuries. With athletes now specializing in one sport at an early age and many of them increasing their training outside of their sport, their shoulders can lose the flexibility and strength needed to perform at their best. Since most sports primarily use the “pushing” muscles during competition, these muscles can get very strong, but many times at the expense of the pulling muscles. This creates a muscle imbalance and possible decrease in range of motion which can lead to…

    It’s official, or at least as close to official as we’ll get before the lineups are announced: Ricky Doyle will earn the first start of his Michigan basketball career Saturday against SMU. The reason, as John Beilein explained Friday afternoon, is pretty simple. He wants to have the five best players on the court at the beginning of each game, and, right now, Doyle is the Wolverines’ best option at center. “We watched film today. He’s really played very well,” Beilein said of Doyle. “He’s improved in a lot of areas. That would be good to assume [that Doyle is starting.” It…

Before focusing on improvement, though, he’s making sure his team is aware of upcoming obstacles. “You can’t shade the truth,” Beilein said Thursday on WTKA-AM’s Michigan Insider.  “You have to tell them where we are and what we have to do…

Most of your are in the semi-final rounds of your league championships, which means that every decision is crucial. My advice is to first check the NFL Betting Lines for the week to get an idea as to how the games are going to go and then cross reference the lines with these rankings. I use Vegas lines and projections from around the internet to create these. Vegas doesn’t have to create lines to get action anymore, because people are simply too good at…

  • 5 Tips for Taking Great Leads and Putting Pressure on the Defense

    17 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    As a player, I loved running bases. It’s so super fun to push your limits, make your opponents sweat a little, and take extra bases any time the opportunity arises. Good baserunners give defenses something to think about. They’re always a threat. They make things tough for the opposing defense and add pressure to otherwise “routine” situations and plays. All this distraction on the bases often takes focus off the batter. It can also open up holes for batters to hit through. When you… take extra bases every chance you get put added pressure on the defense open up…

    The Detroit Hustle -- Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and sometimes Pistons musings

  • Why does Henrik Zetterberg refuse to shoot high in the shootout?

    19 Dec 2014 | 9:35 am
    Henrik Zetterberg had to score. Boone Jenner had just beaten Jimmy Howard to give Columbus a 2-1 lead over the Red Wings in the shootout on Tuesday. Zetterberg was shooter No. 6. He skated in, faked a slapshot and then tried to slide the puck between Sergei Bobrovsky’s legs. It would’ve been slick if it worked. It didn’t. Bobrovsky calmly pushed the puck away. The Red Wings fell to 1-6 in the shootout this season. I know why he did it. Once upon a time Zetterberg was good in shootouts (or at least decent). Making a hard fake and sliding it five hole worked. But that was five…

    (Adam Glanzman) (Note: The following doesn’t include Tuesday’s Blue Jackets game. That was game No. 32 and will go into the next segment)  I stole the segment idea from Red Berenson who stole the idea from Mike Babcock. At the time (I can’t say for sure any more) Berenson utilized 10-game segments to evaluate his team, so I used 10 game segments. On December 4, Grand Rapids Griffins coach Jeff Blashill explained to that he uses five-game segments. That probably would’ve worked better when evaluating the Red Wings this time. In the Detroit’s first five…

This was a 68 yarder with no seconds left. This was a record. This is would be the defining moment of the Lions season. Three and a half hours earlier, the Bills beat the Packers.

    Imagine Plum Island as something other than the Animal Disease Center that it is today and people would think you’re crazy.

  • Caps reassign Andre Burakovsky to Hershey

    Mark Buterbaugh
    19 Dec 2014 | 8:04 am
    As expected, the Washington Capitals have reassigned 19 year-old rookie Andre Burakovsky to the AHL Hershey Bears.  Burakovsky has been a recent healthy scratch for several games and the Capitals would rather have him playing and getting ice time with the Bears. Burakovsky made the Capitals roster right out of training camp after putting together impressive rookie camp, training camp and a healthy preseason.  He netted his first career goal in the season opener against Montreal.  He went on to score eight points in his first nine games.  Since that time though, he has cooled off.  Since…

  • Wake ‘em up, Coach

    22 Nov 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Some members of the media will have you believe that the Giants players have stopped playing for their coach. While most of them are just stirring the pot, some of them are clueless. The Giants defense showed heart and played well enough to win under their embattled DC Perry Fewell. It was the offense, in particular Eli Manning, who gave the game to the 49ers. With Pugh out, Manning was under pressure all game and until the 4th quarter, the running game was no help. We have seen Eli have bad games but this was almost laughable. While I long for the days where the Giants would run it four…
  • Giants vs. 49ers Pregame Thoughts

    This week we’ll see if these Giants have any pride. Can you imagine how pumped Kaepernick is to run the read option against the Giants, who have had no answers to stop or even slow it down? The Giants must show discipline on defense this week or it will be another disaster. Can Perry Fewell put his defense in position to compete this week or will this team give another sub-par effort? On the other side of the ball, the running game should get a boost depending on how many snaps Jennings will play, but let’s hope Eli stays patient and doesn’t force the ball into double…

    The once proud Giants defense looked like a sub-par high school team on Sunday against an average Seahawk offense. The rest of the league knows you have to limit “Beastmode” and take away Wilson as far as the read option. For a while it looked promising and then, during a record setting performance by the Seahawks, it all collapsed drastically. I can’t believe at the highest level of football, the best coaches and players in the world, that the Giants had no adjustment to stop the “zone read.” When JPP was asked after the game, “Were there any adjustments…

Questions began developing over the club concerning many higher figures, the players and other aspects. Over our owner, Joe Lewis’ long term interest in the clubs success, as to us on the outside, it seems as though he’s more interested in keeping his grip on his money in his waning years, rather than push the boat out and invest.Furthermore, over Daniel Levy’s mentality to turn our club from an over…

Tom Coughlin’s bunch can not afford another 0-3 start to the season.   The Texans defense is a formidable group that can put pressure on the quarterback, led by the recent Powerball winner All-Pro J.J. Watt. He should have a clear path to the backfield against a patchwork offensive line.   Eli has to take advantage of the Texans secondary. If the Giants offensive line can keep Eli clean Manning can make plays in the passing game. The Giants defense have been stout against the run, and…
  • Gridiron Rundown Week Two ’14

    19 Sep 2014 | 5:53 am
    Embroiled in a national debate over a domestic abuse problem, the NFL rolled along to week two. Roger Goodell must be praying for Sundays to zip by as fans immerse themselves in the action instead of the growing off the field issues. Week two saw more of the craziness that week one brought as three prominent teams: Seahawks, Saints, Colts were upset in the waning moments of their games. The Packers, Eagles, and Bears also overcame multiple score deficits to win their games. The most talked about game after week two commenced was played in Lambeau Field as the Green Bay Packers rallied from an…

    14 Sep 2014 | 9:15 pm
    This week’s Gridiron Rundown features NFL Kickoff Weekend. Yet again in what seems like a never ending, pulse pounding, opening slate of games. The week started off in what seems like the inevitable quest of a budding dynasty in the Emerald City as the defenseless Packers had their asses handed to them by the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. It’s too bad Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy can’t clone ten more Clay Matthews replace the sorry sack of players they currently have on defense. Sunday brought the chaos we all love, as…

    18 Dec 2014 | 9:55 am
    I can see Madison Square Garden from my Manhattan apartment. This year, the arena installed LED lights along the exterior columns of the building — blue, red and white for New York Rangers games; orange and blue for New York Knicks games. They outshine everything else along a drab stretch of Eighth Avenue. When the Knicks colors shine, I’m reminded that there’s a dreadful basketball team playing a few blocks from me.The Knicks are 5-22 on the year, on pace for their worst season in the not-exactly-glorious history of the franchise. But unlike a lot of bad teams, the Knicks are not…
  • NFL Week 16 Playoff Implications: When Things Start To Shake Out

    17 Dec 2014 | 11:31 am
     The Arizona Cardinals continue to get no respect. Despite an NFC best 11-3 record, Las Vegas has them as eight-point underdogs, at home, against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Similarly, our rankings, which are derived from point spreads, have the Cardinals pegged as just the 19th best team in the NFL. Their “generic points favored”9 is essentially zero.The Cardinals are, quite literally, average.Of course, this is largely a reflection of the Cardinals’ starting quarterback situation. Because of injuries to Carson Palmer and backup Drew Stanton, Arizona will start Ryan…
  • Decades Before Moneyball, The Dallas Cowboys Used Advanced Stats To Win Super Bowls

    17 Dec 2014 | 8:00 am
    A. Salam Qureishi grew up in India and knew nothing about football — or America. And yet in the early 1960s, Qureishi, a computer programmer and statistician, helped the Dallas Cowboys overhaul their scouting system, replacing hunches with hard numbers.The result: five Super Bowl appearances and two titles. FiveThirtyEight and ESPN Films present “The Cowboys and the Indian,” directed by Mark Polish. It’s the second film in our short series “Signals.” (Watch our first “Signals” film, “The Man vs. the Machine,” here.)

    16 Dec 2014 | 3:00 am
    On Nov. 30, Kosta Karageorge, a defensive lineman for Ohio State, was found dead of a gunshot wound — an apparent suicide. His family cited his multiple sports-related concussions (Karageorge was also a wrestler) as contributing to confusion and depression that may have led to his death.If confirmed as a suicide, Karageorge’s death would be the latest in a series of suicides among current and former football players. As a result, players and advocates have increasingly linked depression and suicide to the long-term impact of repeat concussions. In recent years, the NFL has…

    AUSTIN, Texas — Beer miles are won and lost in the “party zone.” When participants in the world’s most athletic binge-drinking event cross into it, they stop running, hastily down a minimum 5 percent ABV beer and then take off again. The zone is only 10 meters long.The best male beer-milers spend somewhere between 4 and 6 seconds in their first stop in the party zone; the best women stay for about 11 seconds. By their fourth time through — the beer mile requires four laps of running, four beers of chugging — the competitors slow. With shaky legs and winded lungs, these…

    After an extended absence due to a combination of garbage lines and general apathy towards writing (or being productive in general); your boy Bobby Catz is back to share early Christmas love with some solid NBA picks. Being laid out on the couch for a few days due to an illness, allowed me the opportunity to watch some games and get a pretty strong feel for how certain teams are playing, the following lines are based on that information.NOP (+4.5) vs. HOUThis one is more about the Rockets than it is about the Pelicans.

    PHI (+5) vs. BOSAt first I thought this line was crazy (a common theme in today's pickz), but then I noticed the payout was -105! Meaning that Vegas actually expects this line to cover right?? And if I've said it once, I've said it a million times, Vegas knows their shit, the rest of us don't. Take the points.LAL (+5) vs. INDYThis line is a smidgen more sane than the one before. At least the Lakers are looking like a decent team these days, and the return of Swaggy P has been all smiles in Lakerland. But in the end you are taking a garbage defensive team on the road against a team that likes…

Rather than getting 9 on a garbage Milwaukee team and then watching them brick their way to a fifteen point loss; tonight you get three points for a team that features legends like Love, LeBron, and James Jones!! This should be a fun one, as the Cavs head into OKC looking to continue their recent string of success and show the Thunder and KD that LeBron still runs this league.BJ's Take: I love the Cavs here!

    The Sacramento Kings recently fired head coach Mike Malone, a move that surprised many. From the outside there seems to have been a certain level of distrust between Malone and the higher ups of the King’s organization. The General Manager Pete D’Alessandro didn’t have any part in hiring Malone (D’Alessandro was actually hired two weeks later) and the popular opinion is that Vivek Ranadive is a meddling owner that imposes too much on his staff. Moves like signing Royce White last season and talks of trading for Josh Smith this off season were opposed by Malone. Obviously…
  • Sacramento Kings Fire Mike Malone

    15 Dec 2014 | 3:40 am
    In what may be the biggest surprise of the young NBA season, the Sacramento Kings have fired coach Mike Malone. Despite a strong start to the season, the team had lost eight of their last ten, though a chunk of those games can be attributed to the illness of their superstar DeMarcus Cousins. The initial reports came from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. According to Wojnarowski, Malone was in jeopardy already, but the team’s quick start saved his job. Once they fell off that pace, ownership was ready to pull the trigger and pull it fast. Still, this is a shocking move, considering…

    After over a century of losing, the North Side of Chicago finally has something to be excited for. Over the past couple of seasons, Theo Epstein and Co. have been working to build the next powerhouse in baseball. While on the surface it may seem he hasn’t done much yet, a talented pool of prospects are on their way up to The Show. Players like Kris Bryant and Addison Russell lead that charge and now with some recent acquisitions, the Cubs are now even closer to contending. In the biggest signing of the offseason so far, the Cubs inked Jon Lester to a six-year, $155 million deal with a…

    One of the biggest (if not the biggest) names of free agency has finally made his decision. Jon Lester will be taking the mound on the north-side of Chicago next year, pitching for the Cubs, pending a physical. The lefty hurler has reportedly agreed to a six-year, $155 million deal. He was in talks with at least Boston and San Fransisco, but in the end, Chicago was able to make the most attractive offer. This also reunites Lester with president Theo Epstein who was there when Lester first pitched for the Red Sox. This is a huge move for the Cubs, who may be converting from a terrible…

But more than anything, I miss the fire.Don’t get me wrong; I love this current Buffalo Bills team.

But something it seems specifically the offense is so clearly lacking (other than points in red-zone trips) is a little…

    Last night the Kansas City Royals announced the signing of right handed pitcher Edinson Volquez to a 2 year $20 million deal.  Volquez will turn 32 this Summer and has been pitching in the big leagues since 2005.  Over that time he has posted a career 4.44 ERA, with a 1.454 WHIP and k/bb ratio of 1.8 .  In his career he has never gotten to the magical 200 inning mark GMDM said he was trying to find, but he has posted 170 innings or more 4 times.   So where are these thoughts I promised? First, Volquez had a pretty decent year last year (minus the N.L.
  • Royals Set Offense, Sign Alex Rios

    16 Dec 2014 | 6:46 am
      On Monday, the Royals went out and signed themselves a right fielder. Alex Rios has been a rumor the last couple of trade deadlines, and it seems Dayton Moore still had his eye stuck on him. Rios signed a 1 year deal worth $11 million. He will take over right field from recently departed Nori Aoki. There are two sides to this signing as Rios has displayed power in the past, hitting 17 or more home runs 6 times in his career. The caveat to that is the down season he had last year in which he only hit 4. He finished 2014 with a line of .260/.298/.394 and if he is to repeat that type of…

They fought so hard to get here, and by the end of the night, they’d either move on to the ALDS, or they’d go home. Naturally, both teams would have their aces on the mound. James Shields had an up and down regular…

After the disastrous last season in which Man Utd did not manage to qualify in any European competition, Louis Van Gaal was brought in to save the sinking ship.  After 10 matches in Premier League Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United was lying on an incredible 1oth place. Fortunately, the fate favored the 63 years old Dutch manager and he managed to lead Man United to the podium (after six consecutive wins – 2 of them against Arsenal and Liverpool). The Red…

He came to replace Txiki Begiristain, who joined Manchester City. After the successful Guardiola period, many experts questioned Barcelona’s transfer policy.

If Manchester United wins the Premier League this year, then David De Gea must be named as “Player of The Season“. That is of course, provided that he can continue with his current form, which is “Out of This World“. Currently the Spaniard is in a class of his own. Strikers will need to do something special to beat this guy. The picture below best describes De Gea…

Does that also explain the reason why the English team failed to get pass the group stages in 2014 World Cup final?

    Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has admitted he may sign a new striker in January, as reported by The Mirror. The Chilean-manager may be forced into the transfer market after Edin Dzeko joined both Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic on the injury-list. Pellegrini does have one striker left in 18-year-old Jose Angel Pozo, but his inexperience may prove to be an issue for City. Dzeko’s injury in the pre-match warm-up against Leicester on Saturday handed Pozo his first start for the club, and he is set to make many more in the run-up to January.

    Die Gäste hatten die Partie zu Beginn komplett im Griff. Defensiv ließen sie Panathinaikos nicht zur Geltung kommen und zwangen die Griechen zu einer grausamen Quote von 23 Prozent bei Zweipunktewürfen in der ersten Halbzeit, sodass sie bereits zur Pause mit 17 Punkten führten. Durch eine Bombendrohung wurde das Spiel insgesamt rund 50 Minuten lang unterbrochen, da die Fans zunächst evakuiert werden mussten. Im dritten Viertel startete Pana zwar noch eine Offensive und kam bis auf 6 Punkte ran, Barca blieb jedoch cool und gewann am Ende überzeugend. Roundup: FCB-Niederlage zum Abschied…

  • Ervin Santana Newest Member of Twins’ Crowded, Mediocre Rotation

    11 Dec 2014 | 3:16 pm
    Terry Ryan and the Minnesota Twins made their one move of the Winter Meetings, reaching an agreement with Ervin Santana on a four-year, $55 million deal that features a vesting option that goes into effect if Santana tosses 200 innings in 2018, which would make the deal worth $68 million. It’s the biggest free agent deal in Twins’ history, which says a lot. It’s a smidge bigger than what Ryan gave Ricky Nolasco this time last year, which says even more. Terry Ryan doesn’t dip his toe into the free agent market very often, and when he does, it’s just a toe. No…

    Minnesota Twins’ GM Terry Ryan is putting his neck out, again, signing Torii Hunter to a $10.5 million, one-year deal. Frankly, this Twins reunion shit is getting old – literally. Hunter will be 39 years old next year, is the worst defensive right fielder in the game, and will be severely overpaid. He should be making low-end DH money, yet he’s being paid ten times more than any outfielder the Twins have, despite being worse than any outfielder the Twins have (I think Arcia will hit much better than Hunter in 2015). Surprising, right? Not if you’re a Twins fan. As a fan…

Throw tropical humidity in the mix and you know it will be unbearable. Of course, that is the least of the worries for most people, especially police, protesters and civil liberties groups.

That number is bound to increase dramatically thanks to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently approving new services to be covered in 2015, including mental health services. Still, due to the limited number of mobile health services covered by American health insurance companies, the majority and most popular mobile health applications are designed to provide preventative care.

Whatever the case, the Lakers came out flat – and that may be an understatement. And it wasn’t like the Lakers were playing the Chicago Bulls 72-10 team from 1996. Instead, they were playing the Indiana Pacers who were riding an eight-game losing streak. At any rate, the Lakers scored only 27 first half points and trailed the Pacers by 33 points at half-time.

    15 Dec 2014 | 9:48 pm
    Jon Judd Following the New Orleans Saints destroying the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, Ray Lewis offered up his impartial and professional opinion on quarterback Jay Cutler. While half of Ray’s “expert analysis” could be construed as confusing, he definitely nailed it when he went off on Cutler. Ray Lewis was so emotional during his segments, that often times he was almost screaming over Cutler while calling him out for the huge contract he signed before this season started.

  • Walmart makes hilarious mistake with Carmelo Anthony doll

    15 Dec 2014 | 1:03 pm
    Jim Racalto is now offering plush dolls of some of your favorite athletes. Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony is one of them…except the doll offered looks eerily similar to Jeremy Lin, and also has Lin’s number when he was with New York. Lin hasn’t played for the Knicks in two years, but the disparities between Anthony and the doll are hilarious. Not only is it the wrong number, but the doll clearly looks to be Jeremy Lin in every aspect. For only $13.88, Carmelo Jeremy Lin Anthony can be yours!

    DUNK360 | Basketball, Football, Baseball, all sports lifestyle and fashion website Move out of the way Derrick Rose, there’s a new best player on the Chicago Bulls roster and he goes by the name of Butler, Jimmy Butler. In Chicago’s 103-97 win over the New York Knicks, Butler delivered in many ways, lifting the Bulls over the lowly Knicks. He had a career high 35 points,seven assists, and stole the ball four times. If that’s not remarkable, then nothing is. Chicago was without former MVP Derrick Rose while New York was without their leader, Carmelo Anthony. After the…

Brewer has been averaging 9.5 points per game, in the last 10 games, and should mix fairly well with the Rockets.

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:44 pm
    The NFL tag line Any Given Sunday has gotten its share of overuse, but in a week where an 0-10 Oakland Raiders team got its first win over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4), it’s hard to argue with the notion that the NFL has quality from top to bottom.   At the end of Week 12, the only certainties seem to be death, taxes and a convincing New England Patriots win. The Pats (9-2) have rattled off seven straight and have distinguished themselves as the only truly elite team in the league. Vegas odds reflect this as NE currently sits at around 3/1 to win the Super Bowl,…

After amassing an impressive 29 first-half points (Dallas led 73-29 at the half), the Sixers exploded for 41 in the second half en route to a 123-70 loss, their 8th straight to start the season.   Words like “laughingstock” come to mind and though the season is still young, discussions about this year’s Sixers being “the worst NBA team ever” are blooming among NBA pundits, including USA Today’s Mike Foss.

    If you’re a Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan, fashion mogul or sports fan, you love you some Air Jordans. The shoes have come a long way since MJ’s debut, but there isn’t much TV love for the iconic shoes nowadays.

    The Chicago Cubs have the “best farm system” in all of baseball. It’s no surprise by now they have been stock piling talent ever since Theo Epstein came to town. The White Sox, on the other hand, are also trying to stock pile talent, but just simply aren’t coming close to the standards the Cubs have set down in the minor leagues.

    13 Dec 2014 | 1:51 pm
    Photo Source:  There are a number of battle cry's and sayings around the National Football League that many fans are foreign to. Why do New Orleans Saints fans say "Who Dat"? Why do Chicago Bears fans say "Bear Down"? Why do Cincinnati Bengals fans say "Who Dey"? "Skol, Vikings" is another popular saying heard around the league. There are a number of stories about how the saying came about but we'll stick with the most consistent ones.

    Photo Source:  America loves their Dallas Cowboys. But aside from the Green Bay Packers, virtually no other NFL franchise can rival the Chicago Bears in overall history and legend. Once called the Decatur Staleys in 1920, the Chicago Bears have retired 14 jersey numbers; the most in the NFL and the third most in professional sports. While this is the ultimate tribute to the club's former players, a more significant tribute has been worn on the sleeves of the Chicago Bears' uniforms for 30 seasons now.

    12 Dec 2014 | 10:36 pm
    Photo Source: The chant "Who Dat" has been in circulation throughout the Southern United States for many years, some say even before New Orleans had an NFL franchise (1967). Many people reference the two words in poems, minstrel shows and even on an old jazz record. Others reference St. Augustine High School, LSU and Alcorn State University as the true creators. After all, that's how people in places like Louisiana talk, right? However, the most widely accepted time frame for the chant's creation was in October of 1983 following the New Orleans Saints' loss to the San…
