New York Jets: Four problems bigger than a timeout

It’s true: The New York Jets lost their week two game to the Green Bay Packers because of a timeout. But not only because of a timeout. When the referees finally called Marty Mornhinweg’s fourth-quarter pre-play timeout (via Sheldon Richardson on the sideline), it was already too late to stop the play in motion, a play that would have been a 37-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith...

Analyzing the Lakers’ frontcourt depth

If there’s one thing the Los Angeles Lakers have always been known for, it’s for being a literal land of giants.

Detroit Tigers: time for Brad Ausmus to get a clue

The Detroit Tigers had a magical victory ripped from their grasp last night thanks to the continued failures of closer Joe Nathan.

He smashed a Glen Perkins fastball over the right field wall...

Denver Broncos: week two review

Another game, another 30 minutes of play for the Denver Broncos. They followed up a 21 point first half against the Kansas City Chiefs with a 3 point second half. Do it once and it can be written off as an aberration, but do it twice and it the beginning of a pattern.

Chicago Bears: Jay Cutler, Kyle Fuller shine in win

When the season started most people had the Chicago Bears penciled in with a 1-1 start. But nobody thought the win would come against a San Francisco team, on the road, and on the grand opening of Levi’s stadium.

In 2013, Matt Harvey burst onto the scene, earning a start in the All Star Game. In 2014, it has been Jacob deGrom. The rookie...

What Charles Tillman’s season-ending injury means for the Chicago Bears

In 2003, the Chicago Bears selected Charles Tillman from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in the second round of the NFL Draft.
