That Eagles team went to the NFC Championship Game. Our squad? We went home.

Yeah, we had some injuries. But so did everyone else. That’s life in the league. Talent? There was enough in our locker room to win. Coaching? I loved the defensive staff. And while Spurrier’s stock as an NFL coach never recovered, I’m not going to blame him. No way. Sure, I didn’t agree with some […]

Most of Detroit’s players have never been through something like this

This Detroit team, however, keeps winning. “It’s like a hundred different people won the lotto,” Orlovsky said. “A feeling you can’t describe unless you experience it. It’s pretty special. And when you’re able to go do something as a group with a bunch of other guys, it’s really special.” Most of Detroit’s players have never […]

The Lions came from behind for the seventh time this season and made the critical plays

Not anymore. Not with this team. The Lions came from behind for the seventh time this season and made the critical plays to win instead of what had happened so much in their past. It might not be time to retire “Same Old Lions” yet — but for this team, this season, it’s really starting […]

Roberts becomes the second different Los Angeles Dodgers manager to win the award

After José Ramírez tied the game in the bottom of the 9th with a solo HR, next up was the rookie Naquin, who had entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh. Naquin hit a walk-off, inside-the-park HR, the second in Indians history and first since 1916. Francona’s Richie Incognito Authentic Jersey team had […]

This could give speedier Astros like George Springer, Jose Altuve and perhaps Alex Bregman

Operating under the assumption that Jose Bautista is also headed out of Toronto, Encarnacion’s fantasy value would be best served in a new organization of his own, being that the resulting hit on Toronto Blue Jays hitters’ counting stats (runs and RBIs) would certainly decrease his stock. Houston, and its home ballpark, Minute Maid Park, […]
