Gordon Hayward Is Back

Gordon Hayward continued his upward trend this season by putting together his best performance as a Celtic.

The forward scored 39 points, grabbed 7 boards, and dished out 8 assists.

Oh yeah, and it happened on the same court where he suffered a career-threatening injury over 2 years ago.

Poetic Justice.

Week 9 Takeaways (Special Edition)

I’m going to do this a little different this week. I usually focus on four different stories and give you insight on them. Instead, I’m going to give you my thoughts on the Patriots loss to the Ravens.

Why?

Because people seem to think every time the Patriots lose the dynasty is finally over… And they’ve been wrong every single time.

Why should we doubt them now? Continue reading “Week 9 Takeaways (Special Edition)”

Kitchens’ Nightmares

I understand talking about another person’s job so freely is a difficult subject. This is a person’s livelihood, a means of survival, and openly rooting for someone’s dismal on a whim is not fair. I do this with every belief that Freddie Kitchens is a good person, knowing he has been said to be a good coach countless times during his previous stops, and I would like nothing more to see him land another gig as an assistant… but for the sake of this piece, the relationship between he and the Browns does not seem ideal.

Lets just remember a breakup means one party loses a job…


If you’ve read my views on coaches in the past, I am very much in the camp where I believe if a GM hires a coach, they should get a chance to figure it out and develop, similar to a player.

Cleveland is becoming an exception.

Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Folks, we are halfway through the 2019 NFL season!

Well, in theory anyway. It’s been a fascinating season thus far, as we’ve seen the star power of old at the QB position take a hit due to injuries, and a rise in the significance of defense. It’s been a really fun to watch all this take hold, and the fun should continue in the second half. Before we get to my rankings, I thought I’d share the players I see in the lead for awards at the midway point of the season. Continue reading “Week 9 NFL Power Rankings”

Who to Watch (November 1 – November 7)

Welcome back to another edition of Who to Watch

The NFL trade deadline came and went, and we saw a monumental move… okay not really. Aqib Talib was traded from the Los Angeles Rams to the Miami Dolphins for a 5th round pick (the idea being Miami could receive a compensatory draft pick in 2021). The NBA is back in full swing, and Wednesday night saw fight night ensue between Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns. The fighting then continued on social media with loaded shots taken on Instagram and Twitter during the night; “this league!” The Warriors look to be in trouble, Aron Baynes might be the MVP this season, and LeBron James loves his tacos (oh yeah, Anthony Davis had a nice game too).

To our picks Continue reading “Who to Watch (November 1 – November 7)”

Mr. 300

Bill Belichick reached yet another amazing milestone this past Sunday as he won his 300th overall game as an NFL head coach. Belichick, in his 25th season as a head coach, became the third person in NFL history to win 300 games, joining Don Shula (347 overall wins) and George Halas (324 overall wins).

The fact Belichick has reached this point is a testament to the operation he has built in New England over the years. Continue reading “Mr. 300”
