Since the 2013 NFL season ended 10 weeks ago, every team in the NFL has made changes. Both winners and losers from last year have been busy making adjustments.

During this firestorm of activity, every team believes they’ve...

One “expert” doesn’t think too highly of Keenan Allen

Pondering if rookie standout Keenan Allen is a No. 1 wide receiver has been a hot topic of discussion amongst those in the National Football League this offseason. And according to one NFL insider, the former California Bear has yet to achieve that mark.

Holler: Vikings should consider Chris Johnson

The Vikings could have quite a one-two punch at running back with Chris Johnson backing up Adrian Peterson. Is that worth at least making an offer in a buyer’s market?

The Atlanta Falcons were the only “fool” on April 1st

Halloween isn’t the only holiday for tricks. Yesterday the Atlanta Falcons attempted to prank fans with a few April Fools’ Day jokes, and much like the Falcon’s 2013 season, the jokes fell flat. Justin Bieber buying the team? That’s almost as unbelievable as Roddy White finally paying up his NCAA bet. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/04/atlanta-falcons-april-fools-day You may...

Power Rankings: Who’s the biggest fool in Atlanta Falcons franchise history?

Last week, we rated every team’s GOAT – the greatest of all-time. This time around, it’s a different type of goat; the kind who will live in infamy in the franchise’s annals. These are the players, coaches, administrators or other random people connected with a team who did something that will forever be remembered, but for all the wrong reasons. They brought shame on themselves...

Celtics can't complete comeback, Raptors win 99-90

Rondo was well on his way to a 20 assist game before he had to get 9 stitches. The Celtics couldn't stop the three(Raptors 11-23),and the Raptors ran passed the Celtics, 99-90. Jared Sullinger nearly willed his team to a win on Wednesday night. Sullinger had 19 points in the fourth quarter but Toronto hit clutch shots in the final minutes to put Boston away for good.Sullinger...

Celtics Keep the Losing Trend Going

The Boston Celtics rarely get blown out, but they do lose a lot of games. Down the stretch of close basketball games, the Celtics can never find the answer. The personnel in the fourth quarter against the Toronto Raptors was awful tonight. Brad Stevens had Rajon Rondo, Phil Pressey, Chris Johnson, Jared Sullinger, and Brandon […]

Despite strong fourth quarter, Celts fall to Raptors 99 - 90

Ready for war.From the tip, it looked like we were in for a vintage Rondo game. After opening the game with a crafty little scoop shot, he stole the ball and Bradley sank one for a Rondo assist.The theme remained similar the same and halfway through the first quarter Rondo tallied 5 assists, which included a beautifully fancy bounce pass to Chris Johnson for a transition three. After...

Celtics remain under the luxury tax after Babb signing

I was kind of shocked to see Babb signed for the remainder or the year. In six appearances since being signed from the Maine Red Claws earlier this month, Babb has averaged 2.2 points, 1.3 rebounds and 11.5 minutes per game. I wasn't overly excited with him when he was out there. I liked what I saw more in the preseason from Babb. I felt like Chris Johnson proved his case and...

Chris Babb literally has no idea where he'll be 24 hours from now. His second, 10-day contract expires Thursday and it's unclear if the Celtics intend on keeping him around for what will have to be the rest of the season.

Let’s Get Footloose

If you ever wanted to see a wild and woolly game, the Celtics and the Suns had one that was top billing. This one wasn’t easy on the basket(eye)ball at all. Boston turned in it’s worst shooting performance of the season (30.9 percent). The C’s have now lost 10 of their last 13 contests and from this outing, they don’t look anywhere close to registering a victory. There...

Suns pull away from Celtics, 87-80

The Boston Celtics had a chance to win this game. The game was tied at 80-80 with under a minute to go. But Alex Len of the Suns scored two in the paint, allowing with being fouled. Alex Len would hit the free throw to give the Suns a 83-80 lead. The Celtics turned the ball over on the next play, and the Suns iced the game on the foul line.

Record: 22-42After the way we played the last time we faced the Pacers, I expected a better game from the Celtics. Number wise though, it’s a pretty strange game: we’ve been closed in every quarter, not scoring less than five points than our opponent, but at the end of the game, Indiana shot almost 55% from the field, while our shooting percentage was 35%; our starting forwards...
