Charlotte Hornets: Gary Neal is lighting it up

The Charlotte Hornets have been pretty awful so far this season.  Charlotte currently sits at 4-11 and hosts 11-3 Portland on Wednesday. The offensive performances and defensive performances have been spotty all season.  They are simply finding ways to lose games instead of finding ways to win them. Gary Neal has been playing great this season. One bright spot for the Hornets...

Nine years ago, a promising young shortstop named Hanley Ramirez was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Miami Marlins — back then known as the Florida Marlins — as part of a deal that brought in Mike Lowell and Josh Beckett to Boston.

Indianapolis Colts: GM and coaches should be on hot seat

I feel like I’ve written this before: the GM, head coach and offensive coordinator should be on the hot seat. Of course, if all of these guys were to be fired, the defensive coordinator would most likely be ousted as well. What has Chuck Pagano done other than be mediocre? What has Pep Hamilton done other than be infuriatingly frustrating? What has GM Ryan Grigson done other than...

Indianapolis Colts: Trent Richardson is a bust

Not that it needs to be said, but Trent Richardson is officially a bust. Great job, Ryan Grigson, spending a first round pick on a running back less talented than an undrafted guy. Richardson is averaging 3.4 yards per carry in 2014 and has averaged 3.15 since he arrived in Indianapolis. He looks like he’s running through molasses on the field, he has average to bad vision and...

It is hard to make predictions too far out, but by now, most NFL teams have identified themselves as a contender, pretender, or just an all around failure.
