Buffalo Bills wasting their time on Josh McCown

The Buffalo Bills might only be a quarterback away from contending, which explains why they’re reportedly in talks with free-agent pivot Josh McCown. But the reality is there are much better options out there than a 35-year-old coming off a season in which he posted an abysmal passer rating of 70.5, ranking 32th among the 33 qualified quarterbacks.

Death threats show why some fans take sports too seriously

Once in a while I like to take a step back and remind myself and anyone listening that this world has a lot to offer. So many things can and should give inspire us — love, sex, money, food, travel, work, music, cinema, physical exercise, and of course sports.

Why the Lions should let Ndamukong Suh walk

The Detroit Lions are reportedly pulling out all the stops to keep superstar defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in Motown. They should relent and allow him to leave via free agency.
