Three Teams That the Patriots Should Worry About

I am a Jets fan, which I’ve shown in previous articles. The Jets are bad, and got worse after the injury to Josh McCown. They’re done and are doing what their original plan was: tank. But, still being a football fan, I’ll talk about the best team in the AFC. That’s the Patriots. They pulled off another miraculous comeback win against the Steelers, thanks to Rob Gronkowski and a classic Big Ben play. The Patriots look primed to make it to the AFC Championship again. Is there anyone who can stop the Pats from getting yet another AFC crown?...

Is Eli Manning’s Career Over?

The New York Giants’ coach Ben McAdoo announced around 3 PM on Tuesday that longtime starting quarterback Eli Manning will be benched for Sunday’s game against the Raiders for Geno Smith, as announced in a press conference held by McAdoo. This will bring an end to Eli’s 210 game streak of starting in an NFL regular season or postseason game. McAdoo also stated that rookie Davis Webb would get a shot to at some point this season.

AL Cy Young Reaction and Rotation Expectations for the 2018 Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox had some spectacular pitching performances this year. Many of them came from closer Craig Kimbrel and ace Chris Sale. These two stars led the Sox to the fourth-best ERA in the Majors this past year, and combined for 434 strikeouts this season over 283.1 innings.

Doing the math, that means that between Kimbrel and Sale would strike out, on average, more than half of the outs through a typical 9 inning game when they were the only two that pitched that game. Obviously,...

The Life of a Jets Fan: Why It Isn’t As Bad As You Think

I have been a Jets fan for about twelve years now. For all but three years, it has been a repetitive kick in the groin. The first year under Rex Ryan, 2009, the New York Jets defeated the Bengals and Chargers in the playoffs. Eventually they lost to the Colts in the AFC Championship game. The future looked very bright, the ground and pound offense combined with a stifling defense provided some hope. In 2010, the same Gang Green group defeated Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in back-to-back weeks in the playoffs. Sexy Rexy and Co. then lost to...
