The postseason is right around the corner and the Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, and the Minnesota Vikings all punched a ticket to the dance via division titles. The Dallas Cowboys got their ticket by virtue of the New York Giants taking care of business on Sunday night. Speaking of which, the NFC playoffs picture is crowded while the AFC playoff chase just became … Continue reading Overreaction Tuesday: Week 15
The Chicago Cubs have not been quiet in the offseason. They were not the Mets, who spent almost a billion dollars in free agency on top choices like Carlos Correa and Justin Verlander, but they definitely made moves. The Cubs were not completely silent last year with signings of Marcus Stroman and Seiya Suzuki. The idea of free agent signings is very simple, to make … Continue reading Cubs Scorecard: Offseason Moves Graded
A new era in Wisconsin has arrived. The Badgers added Oklahoma transfer quarterback Nick Evers to the roster on Saturday. Evers was a four-star recruit from Flower Mound High School in Flower Mound, Texas. Luke Fickell was in the market for a quarterback after three-year starter Graham Mertz entered the transfer portal earlier this month. Evers served as a backup to Dillion Gabriel at Oklahoma … Continue reading Is Wisconsin back?
The Green Bay Packers have decided to release veteran wide receiver Sammy Watkins ahead of Monday’s game against the Rams. Watkins caught 13 passes for 206 yards and zero touchdowns. Why make this move now? With rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs returning in the next couple of games, there was going to be a move made at receiver, and Watkins was going to be the … Continue reading Packers release veteran WR Sammy Watkins
The Packers are not dead yet. The Athletic’s betting model created by Austin Mock has the Packers’ chances of reaching the playoffs at 7 percent. But don’t let these back-to-back wins against the Bears and Rams fool you; this is not a good football team. Green Bay is 1-7 against teams with winning records, and there hasn’t been any indication they can bump that record … Continue reading Packers beat Rams 24-12 to remain in the playoff hunt.
How did the players fare after they were on the Worst list in Week 13? Let’s double check. Deshaun Watson had a serviceable fantasy game with 16.3 points and almost 300 yards passing. After two games with under 40 yards rushing, Derrick Henry broke for 121 yards rushing, 34 yards receiving on three catches, and a touchdown for 20.5 Fantasy points. Mark Andrews is still … Continue reading Fantasy Football’s Worst: Steffon Diggs took the Day Off
One of my earliest sport’s traditions with my dad is getting the local paper for the Bowl Schedule. My dad and I would go down the list, alternating picks, and place a penny on the winner of each game. Before I get any comments like “What type of father would teach his young kid to bet” or “Gambling at your age will cause you to … Continue reading Bowling for Incompetence
It’s December, which means the margin for error is smaller and smaller with each play. There’s a new front runner in the MVP carousel and I don’t think he’s giving up his spot any time soon. A quarterback change in San Francisco didn’t matter, it’s business as usual. A couple of teams are headed into opposite directions during the home stretch of the season. It’s … Continue reading Overreaction Wednesday: Week 14
This weekend, I watched the Army-Navy game, and every year it shows why it’s the most significant game in the history of sports. Throughout history, no game has been more significant than Army-Navy. Army and Navy have one of the oldest rivalries in college football with the Navy leading the series 62-54-7. When I think about this game, I think about the sacrifices people in … Continue reading Army-Navy is the most significant game played in College Football.
