Anthems and Echoes

Find the flag, hats off, no pushing. That is the refrain that countless little league coaches utter as their team stands along the first and third base lines1 just before a YouTube version of the national anthem blares over out-dated and blown-out speakers. Most players, parents, siblings, and coaches might have their minds focused elsewhere during this ritual, but there is still...

Three problems Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has to tackle

By now you have probably heard that the experts are not that high on the Arizona Cardinals in 2015. ESPN thinks they’ll be lucky to win six games this year, USA Today has them ranked lower than the Rams, and Peter King seems to think without a healthy Carson Palmer they don’t stand a chance. For my money, the average analyst has been too hard on the Cardinals this offseason,...

Sports Illustrated MMQB writer Andy Benoit isn’t a fan of women’s sports

As the Women’s World Cup heads to the quarterfinal round, you won’t find Sports Illustrated’s and contributor Peter King’s MMQB Andy Benoit watching the event. Apparently, he finds women’s sports not worth the time. He said so on Twitter after MMQB editor Mark Mravic tweeted out a Vine of England’s go-ahead goal against Norway.

Exactly how that could come about is in dispute, with Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead writing that multiple sources told him Wojnarowski (whose Yahoo contract reportedly expires this summer), is being courted by several outlets to...

King: I have some growing doubts about Wilson’s long-term Seattle future

The Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson are playing a game of chicken which is starting to get interesting after the signal caller's agent submitted 'position' papers to the team explaining the quarterback's worth. Wilson’s agent, Mark Rodgers, is a baseball agent, who is approaching negotiations the way he handles his hardball clients, but the NFL is a different beast and...

The New York Giants signed running back Shane Vereen during free agency in March, and Odell Beckham Jr., the team’s budding star, helped move the process forward—and quickly. According to MMQB’s Peter King, Beckham offered his simple recruiting pitch to Vereen, who apparently didn’t need much convincing and signed within hours of free agency opening.

Despite Brady suspension and loss of Revis, Patriots land at No. 5 on offseason power rankings

The New England Patriots seem to thrive on controversy and while "Deflate-gate" has been the primary focus since the Super Bowl, it hardly deters from the fact this team is built to win. If the NFL suspends Tom Brady for his alleged role in the so-called scandal, don't expect the team to roll over in a ball until he returns. Remember Matt Cassell in 2008? The departure of...
