Hey Look, the Indiana Pacers are the 3rd Best Team in the Eastern Conference

Just a year ago the Indiana Pacers were a rudderless team led by an inconsistent coach. Their rotations were deplorable and they had too many wing scorers and not enough ball-handlers. Danny Granger was their only go-to guy and they lacked any sort of defensive intensity. It’s amazing how much can change in just a few short [...]


Let’s all be thankful that the Detroit Lions are actually good

The Detroit Lions haven’t won a Thanksgiving Day game since 2003. Their streak of futility began in 2004, when they were pummeled by the Indianapolis Colts, 41-9. The Lions have played a home game on Thanksgiving since 1934. They’ve had some good years in there, but for the majority of that time, they have ranged [...]


The Indianapolis Colts need to clean house…yes, even Manning needs to go

Get out your brooms in Indianapolis; it’s time to clean house. The Colts’ decaying season is rapidly becoming farcical. Perhaps their best chance to steal a game this season came (and went) this past Sunday against the offensively-inept Jacksonville Jaguars. Instead of buckling up and pushing the Jags, they squandered a decent defensive performance and floundered on [...]


Tim Tebow is not the quarterback the Broncos are looking for

When pressed by storm troopers upon entering Mos Eisley, Obi Wan Kenobi waved his hand and said, “These are not the droids you’re looking for. Move along.” Similarly, John Elway, John Fox and Brian Xanders need to move along from the Tim Tebow experiment. While he hasn’t had enough time as a starter to definitively [...]


2011 St. Louis Cardinals are an Amazing Story

It’s confession time. I’m a life-long Chicago Cubs fan. I grew up loving Andre Dawson, Ryne Sandberg, Shawon Dunston and Jerome Walton (that quintessential flash-in-the-pan Rookie of the Year from 1989). My hometown (Terre Haute, Indiana) was almost exactly equidistant from Cincinnati, St. Louis and Chicago. In those days both the Reds and the Cardinals had good teams. [...]


No Peyton Manning, but at least the Colts have Jim Tressel in the booth

Disgraced former Buckeye coach Jim Tressel is headed to the booth as a consultant for the Indianapolis Colts. This has been a rough year for the Colts, and having Tressel join the team is small consolation for a fan base who has suffered through some wretched play from their team. What does it mean that a guy who has [...]


The World Series is much better without the Yankees and the Phillies

It’s always a great feeling when the bullies get a comeuppance. It was thoroughly satisfying to watch the scrappy Tigers led by their always impressive manager Jim Leyland bounce the deep pocketed and unlikable New York Yankees. The Philadelphia Phillies have a killer rotation and good bats throughout their lineup. As such, they have been [...]


New Broncos QB Tim Tebow Will Prove His Worth in the Wake of Brandon Lloyd Trade

The Denver Broncos shipped Brandon Lloyd, their best receiver, to the St. Louis Rams for a draft pick next year. What does this mean for newly promoted quarterback Tim Tebow? The Broncos are 1-4 and heading nowhere. After Kyle Orton once again displayed his stunning mediocrity against the San Diego Chargers, head coach John Fox [...]
