One of my favorite things about Taylor Rooks (besides the obvious talent for what she does) was the sheer joy and enthusiasm she brings to it.

Natalie Weiner has been one of the best follows on Twitter for me for quite some time. Her insight is always interesting, and her takes always honest. Her background (Columbia grad, former Editor at Billboard Magazine) makes the sports media world that much richer with fresh takes and ideas. So we’re all better for her writing sports and culture for Bleacher Report. Continue reading “S2, Ep. 12: Natalie Weiner, Sports & Culture, Bleacher Report”

NFL Playoffs 2016: It’s Time For Matt Ryan, Alex Smith To Change Their Playoff Narrative

Alex Smith has guided the Chiefs to three playoff appearances in four seasons.

I’m currently reading the book “Rebel Yell”, written by S. C. Gwynne, about the life of Confederate General Stonewall Jackson. Early in the book it describes a time in Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia) in which Jackson established himself as a worthy war general and tactician to be reckoned with. He was unassuming, disciplined, and boring by personality, but was as gifted as any in field tactics.

There have been a lot of names thrown out regarding this seasons NFL MVP award. Ezekiel “Zeke” Elliott. David Johnson. Tom Brady. All of them have been discussed and all of that discussion had merit.

Emphasis on ‘had’.  Continue reading “The NFL MVP Race Is Between Matt Ryan And Aaron Rodgers, So Here’s Who Wins It”

The Falcons seemed to have figured out the Drew Brees problem (0-2, 646 yards, 2 touchdowns, 3 INT’s in 2014) that troubled them for so long. Can Brees be trusted to turn it around for fantasy owners against an improved Falcons defense tonight in New Orleans? (Photo: The Times-Picayune)

It’s funny how fortunes have changed in the span of 10 months for the Falcons.  Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2015: Thursday Night Football Audibles For Falcons Vs. Saints”
