As the Dallas Cowboys jump to a 2-1 start, many have taken to the argument of who is a better quarterback, Tony Romo or Dak Prescott. Dak, a fourth round draft pick, has proven himself to be a solid replacement for the battle-tested Tony Romo while he recovers from a back injury. The question remains; is it time for...
For many players, week 2 has significant value in terms of carving out an important role in the team or showing that they can be consistent. Having a good first week does not necessarily mean that they will perform well throughout the season. Having played in 2 games now, players give a glimpse of whether or not they will...
If I had to choose one thing to take away from that NFC Championship game it would be this: Matt Ryan will mess your life up and have no regrets. This is not opinion, this is fact. Last Sunday, Matty Ice led the Falcons to their second Super Bowl appearance and their first appearance in 18 years. You can not merely...
On October 7th, the Dallas Mavericks will open up their 2014-2015 season with a huge game against their new rival, the Houston Rockets. The Mavericks have changed drastically since last season, losing some key players but compensating with major additions from free agency. After falling last year to the eventual NBA champions in a grueling seven game series, the Dallas Mavericks showed their...

The former Dallas Cowboy has been an unsigned player since...
They say you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. In the case of the Arizona Coyotes, the NHL simply dragged a dead horse into the middle of the desert and hoped it would sprout into a utopia. Ever since they were force-fed to the Phoenix area after being ripped from the heart of Winnipeg...
It's Opening Day, and as the Rangers begin their 2017 attempt to beat the Blue Jays in the playoffs (and also try to win the World Series but one step at a time), here's a look at the upcoming season. Sabermetrics say the Rangers were lucky rather than good last year because of their success in one-run games and +8...
The Context In major American sports, there’s a glass ceiling for the middle teams of the league. Too good to draft the next guaranteed superstar but lacking the tools to make a deep playoff run, these teams exist on the fringe of the league, trapped in a purgatorial status with success far away. From the retirement of Mike Modano in...
