Used under Creative Commons License.by Adam Carman, BGB Assistant EditorWith the advent of baseball season, it's been harder and harder to focus on the world of football.

Good quarterbacks win games. 20 of the last 21 Super Bowls were won by teams starting former Pro Bowl quarterbacks...

First Eli, Now Flacco?

Is this just a supersticious thing?  Self-proclaim you’re the best or elite in hopes you can become the next Super Bowl champion.  Everybody thought Eli Manning was out of his mind when he self-proclaimed himself to be elite.  Manning wasn’t elite, but the NY Giants were the best last year.  The defense stepped up and became the reason they won the Super Bowl, Justin Tuck...
