Was the fix in for the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys wild card game?

I don’t believe in sports fixes or WWE-like conspiracies to pre-determine games or seasons. Never have. Never will. Can you imagine the work that would have to go into such things and all the whistle-blowers who would have had to remain silent all these years? Remember the hilarious Dana Carvey stand-up bit about all the people who would have had to have been involved in framing...

Three cornerbacks the Steelers should target in free agency

The Steelers secondary has been criticized a lot this season. However, the play of William Gay, Antwon Blake, and Brice McCain of late has been more than stellar and that should not be undermined. While I think it is possible Pittsburgh looks at a top corner in the draft, it’s not very often rookies at the position make immediate, significant impacts. This brings me to believe...
