Lockout looms but NHL has bigger problem

                Prior to the 2003 NHL lockout, concussions were not an apparent concern. Although the problem existed, it was not addressed to the extent it needed to be.

Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers Preview

                  The Bears did look good against the Colts last week, but there is one thing to keep in mind here – they were playing the Colts, who showed that they have one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL right now.  I like the Bears to put up some points against a questionable Packers secondary, and the combination of Matt Forté and Michael Bush will certainly...

New York Giants vs Dallas Cowboys Preview

                Although the NFL is restricted to such a small geographic fan base, I think that it is one of the most special sports of all. The NFL has something so unique that other leagues like the NBA, NHL, MLB, and more can’t really replicate as well as the NFL does – its culture.
