    Kevin Durant left Thursday night's matchup against the Warriors with an ankle injury, and he will not return. Durant injured his right ankle late in the second quarter, when he stepped on Mo Speights's foot as Speights slid over to take a charge. X-rays on the ankle were negative, but he was diagnosed with an ankle sprain. The injury is a bit more concerning than usual, as Durant missed the first month of the season with a Jones fracture in his right foot. Read more...

    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…

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…

Samuel doesn’t take a lot of shots for the Huskies and he certainly doesn’t take a lot of shots with someone like Justise Winslow chasing him down. The result was utter detonation of the layup attempt. A few minutes later, Duke won, 66-56.

    Rajon Rondo, the 28-year old point guard of the Boston Celtics, is about to get traded. And it looks like Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks are about to secure one of the best point guards in the NBA. Dallas is 19-8, which would be good enough for hosting a 1st round playoff series in the East … but in the West, they’re only the 6th seed, narrowly ahead of the Spurs. And don’t forget the Thunder are lurking (12-13), and barring more injuries, get in the playoffs. Last year, the Suns won 48 games and missed the playoffs. The Mavs’ weak link right now? Point guard.

    FULL TIME WORK IS OVERRATED The role of interim leader is a difficult one. You can't use long-term security to project authority. You can't approach things from a developmental perspective because you're expected to succeed right away - and even then, you might not get a full-time gig. In fact, the interim role is a lot harder than the regular one in a lot of ways. So let's take a moment to acknowledge those who were not expected to lead but found themselves forced to this season.

In addition to Manhattan’s current 20 bridges and tunnels, he estimates it would require 48 new 8-lane crossings, which are drawn arbitrarily in the image above. For parking,…

  • Talking Horses: Friday’s best bets plus a new tipping competition

    Greg Wood and Tony Paley
    19 Dec 2014 | 1:51 am
    The Colin Tizzard-trained Thistlecrack at Ascot is the value bet at 20-1The meat of the card at Ascot this afternoon is quite thin in terms of numbers, with a total of just nine runners in the two most valuable races and only five in the handicap chase. A schedule of five jumps races and a bumper is not exactly getting into the spirit of Christmas either with seven-race cards now pretty much standard at most racecourses, but at least the race without obstacles is worth staying behind for.

    The Stars look to build on their impressive shut out win over the Canucks in their last outing as they head into Calgary to take on the slumping Flames. The Dallas Stars earned perhaps their biggest victory of the season on Wednesday night as they blanked the Vancouver Canucks on the road and the win wasn't special just because of the quality of the opponent but the Stars earned a shut out in the most necessary of times. Dallas has been the league's worst team defensively for most of this season and were just recently surpassed by the Edmonton Oilers for that claim but for a team that was…

The Boston Bruins have had an off year but their standards so far in the 2014-15 season as they currently sit in sixth place in the Atlantic division and while there is a lot of hockey left to be played they certainly have to be feeling a little bit of pressure in the strong Boston market.

Anaheim continued their league leading pace with a win against one of the best in the East on Thursday night as they took down the Canadiens in Montreal by a 2-1 final in what was a very hard earned two points.

    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…

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.

There's a potential for two-to-three more names to be added the ledger but the defensive line and defensive backfield still remain the last two priorities. There may be no player ranked higher on the list than Juwuan Briscoe, the cornerback from Thomas Stone High School in Waldorf, Maryland. "Briscoe is, what we think, a no-brainer" one source shared.

    If you would have asked Urban Meyer back in September if he thought his team could compete with Alabama, he may have looked at you like you were crazy. Now, though? Not so much. "After Week 3, probably not," Meyer said Thursday when speaking to the media for the first time since the day after the Big Ten championship game. "I thought at some point we were building (an Alabama-level team), but I made the comment I thought it was a year away." But the fourth-ranked Buckeyes kind of skipped what was supposed to be their rebuilding year and now have a Jan. 1 date with No. 1 Alabama as part of…

    Assistant coach turnover is more commonplace in football than basketball. Thad Matta had to replace a few assistant coaches in his time as the Buckeyes' head coach, however. Offensive coordinator Tom Herman carries the cachet of building Ohio State's up-tempo offense and the ability to recruit in The South. Comparatively, it's difficult for a basketball coach to stake their reputation on one aspect of the game quite like a football coach can. Perhaps Matta will allow one of his assistants to take credit for implementing a zone defense, although he previously acknowledged Eastern Michigan…

    18 Dec 2014 | 9:15 pm
    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…

They are all loaded with talent and they all can’t get out of their own way. But why is that, is it coaching? , is it, the system they are using?

That's the difference."--Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver, who scored three touchdowns and 114 yards on six receptions against the Eagles in Philadelphia.After three consecutive mediocre, non-playoff 8-8 seasons (and much criticism from fans and the media), the Dallas Cowboys are back on top of the NFC East after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles this past Sunday…
  • The Team Virus: Have You Caught It?

    9 Dec 2014 | 8:01 am
    How quickly can a coach lose his influence on the team?   When teams lose, we tend to blame the coach.   Is it fair? 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…

As he works to help build a winning team and a climate of success in his return to Cleveland,  he may be back to thinking too much about his role, his teammates, how to facilitate, how to fit it. Of course those issues are…

    "Right now we've really figured out how to bond together as a group. True chemistry is built through adversity. It's tough because it could cut either way. It seems to have brought us together."--Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers, in an interview prior to last season (October 2013).And the adversity just keeps coming.  Many people have predicted another losing season for the Los Angeles Lakers, who have lost the first five games of the 2014-2015 NBA season.

    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…

    Lion Babe is Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman. They’re also your new go to artist to travel to new galaxies. The two of them combine to make music that every artist strives to create–something fresh and creative, yet familiar and comforting. Jillian’s voice is similar to Macy Gray’s in cadence and nuance but has the warmth and smoothness as if someone sanded down and applied a fresh layer of finish to Gray’s voice. Lucas squeezes out soulful production that complements Jillian’s singing instead of getting in the way. The two have a great harmony. You can…

    Chicago rapper YP releases a record produced by longtime No I.D. collaborator Xtreme, breaking his silence on the death of his infant son for the first time.   YP has been on a bit of an (understandable) hiatus after the death of his son, but he bares his soul in his bars and pours his pain on the new Xtreme produced track, “Let Us Pray.”  The heart-wrenching emotion brings something new to the table that we rarely hear from rappers these days–raw honesty.  YP is candid in his vulnerability, and it’s likely to be a therapeutic listen for fans, as well.  Listen…

  • 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.

At the point that you’re hired, you don’t really know what’s worked in the past and what hasn’t. You don’t even have a firm read on all of the people on your team. And yet, important decisions need to be made right away. That’s a tough situation. It’s not dissimilar to starting a new blog or…
  • 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…

Be sure to include travel time and a little extra time for inevitable surprises and delays. Most photographers should have a shot list of the most popular groupings you can review prior to the wedding to see what you would like to do. The first issue was the text-to-speech ability of the device. Authors went ballistic over it. They claimed the reading of the text was an attempt to get around paying royalties.

The Russian rouble is currently at its lowest value in over a decade, partly due to trade sanctions and the on-going production of cheap oil in Saudi Arabia. Bloomberg’s Billionaires index reported that a total of £5.53 billion was surrendered by 15 Russian billionaires in the space of just 48 hours, Abramovich and Usmanov amongst them. It has cost Abramovich £287m while Usmanov lost £516m, although their…

Arsene Wenger’s side were routed on their last trip to Liverpool’s famous stadium in February, when a devastating four-goal salvo inside the first 20 minutes left the north London club reeling. It was the start of an 11-game winning run that took Liverpool to within sight of the title. Their subsequent collapse has been followed by a wretched start to the current…

    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.

    Sometimes you just have to ignore the ridiculous behavior in youth sports. Going on a crusade to stomp out all that’s bad in the youth sports culture is a daunting task. You will do more by being a positive voice for what’s being done right and how to do it right, instead of constantly harping on what’s wrong. However, there are some behaviors that that cannot and should not be ignored. If you see any of these behaviors, do not turn a blind eye. It’s time to speak up. 1. Abusive or bullying behavior by anyone, kids or coaches or parents. This includes berating, cussing, as well as…

    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…

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.

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…

    “Once you choose hope, anything is possible.” – Christopher Reeve In 5 weeks on December 6th, 2014, my friend Jenifer and I will be running the St. Jude’s Marathon in Memphis. This will be my third time running this race. It is without a doubt the most inspiring marathon I have ever done.

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.

He proved that he can run over some of the best defenses in the country when he put up 7 big runs against Nebraska just last month. His long strides and speed make him difficult to catch once he gets beyond the line of scrimmage. His yards and touchdown totals have put him in position to win the Heisman Trophy at the end of the season if everything goes well.

Feats of strength and coordination dazzle the eye in performances of spirit and positive energy.

  • 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 finally winter break at the University of Michigan, which means one thing to John Beilein: finals are over, so his players have more time to focus on their game. And because his Wolverines are 6-4 entering what has become a crucial non-conference contest against SMU on Saturday, the coach knows there are plenty of challenges ahead. 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…

    Michigan big man Ricky Doyle could be set to make his first start of the season on Saturday. John Beilein said his freshman big man “will probably start the next game,” while discussing Doyle on his weekly radio show last night. Statistically, Doyle has been Michigan’s best big man. He’s averaging 17 minutes, 7 points and three rebounds per game, all best among Michigan’s bigs. He’s also shooting an impressive 67% on twos and has been Michigan’s lone presence on the offensive glass. Despite struggling against Arizona’s massive and athletic front line, but…

We just have to keep getting better throughout the process.” Beilein has been coaching for a while now and he’s learned a thing or two along the way.

    Ricky Doyle’s emergence as a go-to center by the Michigan basketball team’s fourth game of the season was surprising, to say the least. The last three games have been somewhat of a return to reality — not just for Doyle, but for all of the Wolverines’ big men. In losses to NJIT, Eastern Michigan and then No. 3 Arizona, their inability to establish or maintain an inside presence has proved to be an issue for Michigan. In the preseason, assistant coach Bacari Alexander told the trio of Doyle, Mark Donnal and Max Bielfeldt that he hoped they’d combine for 15 points and 15 rebounds per…

    In sports, it’s very common to complain about the refs – fans, players, and coaches all do it! The most talked about situation recently involved the Chiefs complaining about a fumble call they thought contributed to their loss to the Cardinals. Let’s face it, complaining is easy and in some ways lazy. Whether in sports or life, where does complaining really get us? I would argue that discussing concerns or having a hopeful conversation with someone about a potential change is productive…but complaining or whining is a dead end. This may seem impossible, but the Bible says:…

    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…

    (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 MLive.com that he uses five-game segments. That probably would’ve worked better when evaluating the Red Wings this time.

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.

  • Yoenis Cespedes is a Detroit Tiger; This could be the most entertaining team of all time

    Everybody say it together: WHO KNOWS? YO KNOWS! Yoenis Cespedes is a Tiger. Rick kind-of-handsome-but-boring Porcello is not.

    (Photo: Bridget Samuels) Brady Hoke was in his first year at Michigan when I covered the team. In that new period, before everyone figured out his style, it was amazing to watch him handle the media. He’d be engaging and interesting — and then when you went back to transcribe what he said you’d realize he said nothing. It was magic. I’d construct stories in my head and have a perfect spot for what he just said would fit in. When the quote went onto the page, I’d put realize it was nothing but cliches and generalities.

Everybody should take the positives away and go home: Things went as planned, other than maybe the feeble comeback attempt the Buccaneers made at the beginning of the fourth quarter. But I can’t do that. Usually on sometime on Sunday I head over to the Lions website to watch the press conferences to see if someone either says something interesting or uses their body language to speak for them. I…

    Long before Lyle Alzado was crushing quarterbacks and linemen in the National Football League, he was a strong and hard-nosed player at Lawrence High School in Nassau County. A native of Cedarhurst, N.Y., Alzado used to lift weights in longtime Lawrence coach Rich Mollo’s garage while staring for the Golden Tornadoes. He eventually went onto Yankton College in South Dakota and was selected by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the NFL draft in 1971.

Rob Nelson, a pitcher at Nassau County Community College and at Cornell University, partnered with former teammate and baseball notable Jim Bouton to launch the product in the 1970s. Nelson played with Bouton on the Portland Mavericks in 1977, an independent team founded by Bing Russell, the late actor and father of Kurt Russell, and grandfather of former big leaguer Matt Franco.

    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…

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…

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…

Monaco come from securing a last 16 place in Champions League after a 2-0 win over Zenit. The team have been struggling after Falcao and James Rodriguez moved to countries with a…

(Mandatory Credit: Adam Bettcher/Getty Images) Disaster, joke, laughing stock of the league; the New York Jets have become too familiar with these terms over the past few years. This 2014 season has been a nightmare and thankfully for the Jets it’s coming to an end soon. Owner Woody Johnson came out last week and commented on Rex Ryan and his situation: “I’ve always thought he’s a very good coach. He’s an excellent…
  • Should The New York Knicks Abandon The Triangle?

    Carmelo Anthony #7 and Jose Calderon #3 of the New York Knicks celebrate during a game against the Toronto Raptors at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. (Mandatory Credit: ESPN/Getty Images) We are a well into the second quarter of the NBA season and the New York Knicks are a franchise worst 5-21 with a brutal stretch of games upcoming. If rookie head coach Derek Fisher wants to last in the big apple he needs to stop running the triangle offense immediately and have this team start playing a quicker paced offense to prevent this team from completely turning on him. Phil Jackson…

    Jon Lester #31 of the Oakland Athletics reacts after the third out in the seventh inning against the Kansas City Royals during the American League Wild Card game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. (Mandatory Credit: ESPN/Getty Images) The Boston Red Sox did a disservice to their fan base this off-season as they strung them along and stayed on the back-page of the papers by making just enough of a bid to stay in the Jon Lester negotiations–without any intention of actually signing him. The Red Sox front office had painted themselves into a corner with some bad public relations work to…

That leaves an unfathomable number of nine teams still in the playoff race with two weeks to go. That’s right, only the Jets, Jaguars, Titans, and Raiders are eliminated from the AFC playoff race. It’s crazy to comprehend the parity of the AFC, but it was summed up pretty well…
  • Will Tim Hardaway Jr. Step Up For the Knicks With Increased Minutes While Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith Recover?

    Tim Hardaway Jr. #5 of the New York Knicks shoots against the Toronto Raptors at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. (Mandatory Credit: Getty Images/ESPN) The Knicks took another blow with the loss of possible up-and-comer Iman Shumpert. Shumpert dislocated his shoulder on Friday after colliding with Celtic’s small forward Jeff Green. The Knicks came away with their fifth win of the season after defeating the Celtics 101-95 just to turn around and lose to the Raptors 95-90 in overtime on Sunday. The Knicks reside at the 14th spot in the Eastern Conference, and 4th in the…

    16 Dec 2014 | 5:00 am
      Being a life-long fan of the Los Angeles Lakers, I usually have a general feeling of happiness about the NBA season and particularly about the beginning of the season. In years past the first quarter of the season was about how our new players would mesh, who would learn the triangle and who would become an important player in the rotation. I remember reading articles questioning how Kobe and Pau would bounce back after losing to the Celtics, if Ron Artest could replace Trevor Ariza and maintain championship form, and if the super team the Lakers assembled in 2012 could win 70 or more…
  • Jets Takeoff Week 3

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:58 am
    Gang Green squares off against yet another quality NFC North opponent on Monday Night. This time Da Bears coming off their amazing comeback victory against 49ers visit the Jets. The key matchup of this game is Da Bears offensive line keeping Jay Cutler off the ground. If he can stay clean, Cutler can tear apart the Jets young and battered secondary. The Jets have to take advantage of a weak Bears run defense. They also can not settle for field goals, the Jets must score touchdowns to win this game. Look for Da Bears to target tight end Martellus Bennett and running back Matt Forte in the…
  • Giants Gameday Week 3

    Joseph Marc
    21 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    The Giants season is on the brink of disaster this Sunday, as they host the Houston Texans. 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…

    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…

    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…

    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

     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…

    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…

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!!

    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…

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…

The foam roller that I previously owned was too soft and at the time I was not looking to spend $70- $80 dollars on one of those fancy shmancy new foam rollers. So I got online and started reading about various other types of massage therapy and decided to purchase the Tiger Tail. Tender “knots” in the muscle can prevent full range of motion, while causing…

    Ken Rosenthal reported on Thursday that the Royals have agreed with right-handed pitcher Kris Medlen on a 2 year deal. The 29 year old Medlen has previously had 2 rounds of Tommy John surgery, and missed the 2014 season due to the most recent. He will earn $2 million in 2015, $5.5 million in 2016 and there is a $10 million mutual option for 2017 or a $1 million buyout making the deal worth $8.5 million guaranteed. There are large performance bonus' included in this deal as well, which could push the deal up an additional $10 million in the first 2 seasons. Medlen provides an…

    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

    lukegoosen
    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…

    It’s December, and my baseball withdrawals are in full swing. I was having a bit of anxiety, so I decided to re-watch the 2014 Wildcard game. Let’s go back, shall we? Royal Rewind: This was the game that Kansas City fans have dreamed of for a very, very long time. For the first time in 29 tedious years, there was finally new life in the Royals fan base. 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…

      The Kansas City Royals have acquired free agent Kendrys Morales for 2 years and $17 Million.  The switch hitting DH split time last season between Minnesota and Seattle, and had a sub par year for both squads.  You may remember Morales set out until June of last season while waiting for an offer.  His price tag was considered to hefty then with a compensatory pick attached.  So after the June draft the Twins signed him to a one year deal, only to trade him away in July.  Kendrys is currently 31 and at this point in his career considered a DH only. This is…

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…

    Sergio Aguero – A Blue Talisman   Sergio Aguero is one of the best strikers in the world and undoubtedly the main goalscorer for Manchester City. The 26 years old Argentinian was the most prolific striker of the team since his arrival on Etihad in 2011 (30 goals in 2011/2012 season; 17 goals – 2012/2013 season; 28 goals – 2013/2014 season; 19 goals so far in 2014/2015 season).

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?

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.

    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.

Vergne was all over the back of Buemi on the penultimate lap of the race, but any chance of taking the victory was cruelly snatched away after a mechanical failure forced him to pull over. Title leader Lucas di Grassi took 3rd place to continue his run of podiums. The fantastic Punta del Este circuit on the coast of Uruguay has been said by…

    Jason Whitney The Los Angeles Lakers may have celebrated a bit too hard after Kobe Bryant broke into third place all-time in the NBA’s scoring record book last night. 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. That was good for their worst first half since the…

    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,…

    All anybody has talked about lately is the drama surrounding the key pieces of the current Chicago Bears makeup including quarterback Jay Cutler, head coach Marc Trestman and GM Phil Emery.  All are directly responsible for what has arguably been the most disappointing season in franchise history, which is saying something.  It’s also why all three are in danger of losing their jobs. Rumors continue to filter in that the chances are good the slate will be wiped clean in 2015.  Emery and Trestman will be fired and Cutler will be traded or cut.  However, at least one insider close to…

    Are the Bulls the best team in the East? Well Charles Barkley certainly thinks so…if Derrick Rose stays healthy.  In an interview with the Chicago Tribune Barkley said that the Bulls have no weaknesses, a great coach and are solid at every position; the key to them being the best in the east he says is a healthy Rose. A 15-9 the team has shown spurts of dominance; but they have also shown inconsistencies.  They are a team that can score, but have also struggled on the defense end.  The team is still trying to get completely healthy and comfortable with each other.

  • A Few Eye-Popping Stats Suggest the Chicago Bulls Have Changed their Identity

    Patrick Hughes
    18 Dec 2014 | 1:16 pm
    Since the Tom Thibodeau era began in Chicago, the Bulls have maintained a certain identity: defense first. Often undermanned due to injuries to their star players, the Bulls have finished as a top four seed in the East every single season with Thibs at the helm. They can largely attribute that to their defense. In the first four seasons under Thibs, the Bulls have ranked in top three in the NBA in points allowed per game in all four of those seasons. Their highest average points per game allowed under Thibodeau was in 2012-13 when they allowed 92.9 PPG according to ESPN. Fast forward to the…

    Photo Source: SportsWorldReport.com  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.

    Photo Source: StoryvilleApparel.com 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…

They placed the bets when Hazlewood was only 15 years old. Back in 2010, Hazlewood, at 23 years of age, made among the youngest player of one-day cricket in…

    17 Dec 2014 | 12:14 pm
    The Atlanta Falcons are now facing elimination from the division race and the postseason this weekend, and the two recent losses came with Jonathan Massaquoi watching from the sidelines.

PFF’s statistics show Massaquoi rushing the passer 100 times in those first 8 games.  Those plays resulted in 2 sacks, 6 QB hits, 9 QB hurries, and 1 batted pass, meaning that…

    The Steelers finally beat a losing team from the NFCS. In doing so, they moved up to the #1 ranked offense in the NFL. Hard to believe just a couple of seasons ago they couldn’t even dream of that. But they were the #1 defense for a few seasons before they went 8-8 two seasons in a row. Now they turn to their offense to try and get them their seventh Lombardi Trophy for their Heinz Field Trophy Case. The Steelers have only been #1 in offense one time in their history and that was when they won their 4th SB in 1979. The Steelers have a chance to clinch the 6th seed in the playoffs by…
