The Indianapolis Colts are coming into the 2017 NFL draft with many holes to fill, mostly on the defensive end. New GM Chris Ballard will be looking for some hidden gems in the later rounds of the draft.

The Washington Wizards are hoping that after the All-Star break, they are able to pick up where they left off.  Since Jan. 14, the Wizards have a record of 15-2 and their both losses could have been victories but a buzzer beater shot by Marcus Morris and the miraculous shot by LeBron James to send the game into overtime resulted in those losses. Their first game after the break...

How the New Orleans Pelicans now pose a threat to Golden State

A few weeks ago after the Warriors suffered a frustrating overtime defeat at the hands of the Sacramento Kings, I wrote an article discussing how versatile big men like DeMarcus Cousins could pose a threat to Golden State in the playoffs. However, I assured Warriors fans that this was a minor weakness, and that the rarity of a center with Cousins’ all around skill would preclude...

Will Coors Field help or hurt the Colorado Rockies in 2017

Among the green seats in the upper deck of Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, there is a row of seats going around the stadium that are painted purple. This symbolizes the exact elevation of 5,280 feet above sea level, literally a mile high. At such high elevation the air is thinner, breathing is more difficult, and baseball, well it seems to be played a little… differently...

Horse Racing: A very special racing debut this Friday…

There are a lot of moving parts, and a lot of people involved, in this story. To protect the guilty, I’m going to either change their names or not mention any of them at all. But I will start from the beginning. In May of 2015 a friend of a friend, who was an assistant trainer at the Finger Lakes in NY, called me and asked if I were interested in doing a “split” on a two year...

Michigan Basketball: Tournament outlook

At this point of the season, with four games to go in the regular season, Michigan is sitting on the bubble. In my latest bracket projection, this past Monday, the Wolverines were located on the 10-seed line. Not too far off the “last four in” group of 11 seeds. If Michigan wants to hear their name called on Selection Sunday, there are still a few things they need to take care...

What the DeMarcus Cousins trade means for the Brooklyn Nets

It’s the eve of the NBA trade deadline and the Brooklyn Nets are making moves. Good moves too. Borjan Bogdanovic for a first round pick in this stacked draft? As a franchise with no playoff aspirations within the next few years, I’d take that anyday. The Bogy deal is good but, and I’ve said before, who the Nets really need to get rid of is Brook Lopez. He’s a top ten center...

San Francisco 49ers: Prepping for free agency, Part 2

Continuing on from part one, with the re-signings out of the way, it’s now time to look at free agents from other teams the San Francisco 49ers could target. Again, with almost $100 million in cap space, I expect the 49ers to be big players, or at least more so than last year, when their efforts netted them Thaddeus Lewis and Zane Beadles. Let’s look at who’s available. I won’t...

After their first winning season in five years, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers view themselves as a team on the cusp of joining the postseason for the first time since 2007. With young pieces Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, Gerald McCoy, and Lavonte David already on board the Bucs are legitimately a few moves away from being perennial contenders in the NFC. Finding a number two receiver opposite...

Three defenders the Green Bay Packers should sign this offseason

The Green Bay Packers are in a bit of trouble this offseason because their defense failed them once again in a big game. This isn’t the first time it has happened to this team, and it won’t be the last time unless the Packers become active in free agency and reinforce their defense with some playmakers. There are plenty of defenders the Packers could sign, but they should focus...

Analyzing the Chicago Bears options at quarterback

The Chicago Bears are at a crossroads when it comes to the quarterback position. Jay Cutler has no more guaranteed money on his contract, which means that the Bears can cut him this offseason without a cap penalty. The Bears had a revolving door at quarterback last year. Jay Cutler, Brian Hoyer, Matt Barkley and David Fales all had time under center. There is a chance that some of...
