Good quarterbacks are hard to come by in the NFL, and it has … Continue reading Are Dak and the Cowboys headed towards a Kirk Cousins – Redskins Split?
by Ken Napzok The first piece has fallen. Actually the first TWO pieces of the pitching free agent puzzle have fallen into place. Zack Wheeler is a Phillie and Cole Hamels will be firing strikes for Atlanta next season. And so it begins… I love the offseason.

by Jordy McElroy New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick might have constructed arguably the best defense in franchise history, but he also had a hand in deconstructing a prolific offense that has been humming for nearly two decades with quarterback Tom Brady behind center.
