It’s commendable that [Josh Hamilton] self reported the issue and admitted to the relapse. Hopefully he can keep his life together; baseball is secondary at this point.
15M for a QB is a steal these days. Wilson and Luck probably getting 20M per year
Speeding up the game would be tough. Aside from shortening the game length, only marginal changes can be made. The way to improve baseball is through the way it is presented.
One of Damian Lillard or Boogie Cousins will not make the Western Conference All-Stars, but both could’ve started in the East.
First round pick, $500,000 fine, and Belichick banned from the league and the Hall of Fame. I don’t think he’ll be suspended. But that would be the right thing to do. Cheaters need to be held accountable
I think Alexi Ramirez would have been a solid option for what [the Mets] need right now. He’s always been a high average hitter and a solid defender. I know he’s a little older but they could have signed him to a two or three year deal.
I think Seahawks-Colts is the least likely matchup
[The Braves received] a pretty strong return for a one-dimensional player.
Billy King’s job security is officially on the clock
Part of the reason I think Mariota is the fit is that TB’s offensive line is terrible. With him, you can move the pocket and improvise. They also don’t run the ball well. If you run the read option, you help your running backs. Finally, the best way to help average arm strength is big physical receivers who can go up and get a contested throw that’s a little short. Luckily TB has two of them.
It’s a lose-lose situation for the Bucs. If they draft either Winston or Mariota, people will make fun of them for drafting a “future bust”. But if they don’t draft either of them, people will say “Wow Bucs. You finally had an opportunity to get a franchise QB and you pass it up.” Ugh
If NFL scouts overlooked Ezekiel Elliott before, there’s no way they can now. Huge final three games will cause his draft stock to skyrocket.
I generally love taking underdogs but I’m taking none this week. The Packers had the same record, a higher scoring differential, and finished the season better than the Cowboys
The system needs to be adjusted, as it’s painfully flawed. The guys who get in deserve it for sure. However, some who don’t, or don’t even get 5%, are seriously snubbed because of ballot politics, personal vendettas against certain players, ridiculous suspicions, or displacement by those newly eligible. Some changes need to be made without a doubt.
He is kind of an afterthought when it comes to top goalies but without him, the Caps would be nothing this year. He is having an incredible year.
Even if Bell is unable to play against the Ravens, the Steelers have been playing excellent football as of late and should be able to replace some of Bell’s dynamism out of the backfield with the signing of Ben Tate. Without Bell, the Steelers just barely advance, but with Bell the Steelers are Super Bowl contenders.
Cowboys will win with Suh suspended
Joe Flacco is one of those QBs where when he is good, he is really really good. But when he’s bad, he’s really really bad. He had a good season. Not great, but good
With Alex Smith not playing, I think the Chargers have the last wild card spot locked up
I really hope when the O’Connell Center (Florida’s basketball arena) gets renovated, the court is named after Billy D. Without him, Florida basketball would be nothing.
