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).

Celtics Fans: R-E-L-A-X

Opening Night.

Celtics fans have been waiting for this game since Kyrie Irving took a dump on their Finals hopes last postseason. A fresh start, less mouths to feed, and we get a better look at the young core of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Last night was a blur.

Foul after foul, missed shot after missed shot. What’s worse: losing 107-93, being out rebounded 41-62 or missing 14 free throws? Because the Celtics did both and shot themselves in the foot.

But you know what? This is the first game of the season.

81 games left to fix whatever is going on… and for Boston, it’s not as bad as you think. Continue reading “Celtics Fans: R-E-L-A-X”
