His energy, hustle and discipline helped ...

What-If Wednesday, Part 6: The Final Five

With the NFL season about halfway over with, now is the perfect time to analyze the best teams in the league. The two best in the league don’t need anything to make them contenders, so I am not going to give them anything. As of the Week 9 games, I think that the Chiefs and the Patriots remain the ...


Pondering the Pacers: Way too early report card

The Pacers have been bad to start the season. Even with a win on Wednesday, it has not looked good. That being, beating Brooklyn while enduring the loss of Myles Turner impresses me as well.

Considering the Colts: Trap Game awaits Indy this week

Last time I checked, a win is a win and I’ll take it.  The Denver defense is not ranked 4th in the league for no good reason, and they gave the Colts offense fits all afternoon long.

Considering the Colts: Why is Indy being disrespected?

In ...
