    5/4--hosting the Tigers

    He's not wrong. Vaz tried catching the ball cleanly. As early as little league, coaches teach their catchers not to try to catch balls in the dirt. You turn your glove over, drop to your knees like a goalie in hockey and make your body into a wall. You do that because, well, the ball sometimes...

    Classy Championship Game (NFC and AFC) Game Thread

    The Bill's plan to debunk the myth that you can't beat KC by scoring field goals isn't looking so good.

    Classy Championship Game (NFC and AFC) Game Thread

    I've counted at least four times a GB tackle came out of his stance before the snap. This time it was the RT. Time for the Zebras to start calling that a little tighter

    Super Wildcard Weekend Gamethread

    The real crime here is that McDermott had to call a timeout to initiate what should have been an obvious automatic booth review.

    RD3 #37/#101: TE Dalton Keene, Virginia Tech

    I watched every game he played his three years at VT. He started as a true freshman and left early so he's still very young entering the NFL. He had obvious improvement each year. What I can say is he's a better blocker than you would think, and was really good at setting the edge on off tackle...

    Celebrating What Is

    I've always thought Brady's playoff record is all the more impressive because so few of those wins came against 5 or 6 seeds The counter argument to the above is that by playing in the AFC east, the schedule puts them in a great position to get a bye every year and that equals rest. That coupled...

    The Nation's Tears: Volume II

    The pats, with their rediculous consistency, for sure threw a monkey wrench into the plan. At that time, her comment may have even made sense. It's interesting that from about that time, 12 different franchises have represented the NFC since the start of the 2000 season. In the AFC over the same...

    My Favorite Non-Pedro Red Sox Pitching Performance

    For one of my favorites I'm going to go with a relief performance I will always remember just for the wow, dominance factor. Very early in 2007 vs TEX.  Paps came in with 1 out in the 8th, first and third situation up one run, got M...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    I agree that it was going to be ignored. So where would we be today had Brady not thrown that pick? Or if he didn't throw it until the 4th quarter when the game had already been decided?

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    I need to put some coherent thoughts together as this subject has, quite frankly, taken over my life. I know I have better things to do and I need to stop focusing 80% of the useful portion of my brain to this. Before I get too far into it, I should say that my opinion thus far is formed out of...

    ALDS Gamethread

    Finally someone is warming. Once they had a five run lead I saw it as a no brainer. Yeah you can't bring him back if it goes to shit but he's already not used to going more than one inning and now his arm must be ice cold. No sense risking injury for whatever psychological advantage there is to...

    Spring Training 2014

    Unless spring training costs extra, I would sign up now. I've been a subscriber for 10 years, the only games that are blacked out are those that are available on broadcast or cable in your local market. They only know to black you out based on the location of your ip address, not what...
