Cowboys Off To Best Start Since They Went 13-3 in 2007 Then Lost to Giants in Divisional Playoff…

Cowboys Off To Best Start Since They Went 13-3 in 2007 Then Lost to Giants in Divisional Playoff…

Regular seasons are overrated. Particularly, the first half of regular seasons are overrated. Peyton Manning has 510 passing touchdowns in his career. And 1 Super Bowl win. Favre 1 Super Bowl win. Marino 0 Super Bowl wins. It’s awesome to win in the regular season. Everyone talks about you and says how awesome you are. But, who remembers the best regular...

Santa: Saban Defender

Santa: Saban Defender

I agree, coach: Everybody…Calm…Down. I have this apparent reputation as the consummate ‘Saban Defender’, and it never ceases to amaze me. I mean, if I say Mike Krzyzewski is a great coach – after getting bounced from March Madness by Mercer – am I a ‘Coach K. Defender’? If I say Gregg Popovich is a great coach...

It’s Almost Like Stealing: My Week-8 College Football Picks

It’s Almost Like Stealing: My Week-8 College Football Picks

Two weeks ago, after I went 1-4 with my college football picks, I’ll admit: I needed a bit of a personal ‘pep talk.’ I was a little down in the dumps, but, I picked myself up by my bootstraps and got back on the horse last week – as I went 3-2. Not great, not awful. After you go 1-4, you’ll honestly take anything you can get. With...

Mississippi Magic

Mississippi Magic

It has been a long time since the Egg Bowl – the annual football contest between Ole Miss and Mississippi State – actually meant anything. In fact, in my thirty-four years on this Earth, I really can’t even remember the Egg Bowl being anything more than the game you would flip to when the Alabama – Auburn game went to commercial. Times...

Season Over

Season Over

At around 10:30pm on Sunday night, October 12th, 2014 during the third quarter of a divisional game against the arch rival Philadelphia Eagles, the New York Giants 2014 season officially ended. I think the majority of Giants fans would be fine with me ending this blog post right here, mercifully, unlike that waterboarding our eyes got last night. For any...

One Bad Week Can’t Stop Santa: My Week-7 College Football Picks

One Bad Week Can’t Stop Santa: My Week-7 College Football Picks

That picture is a good look into exactly how I felt putting together this week’s picks. It’s funny, too, because after a 5-0 week the Saturday before – and a 13-2 record the previous three weeks – I felt like my football-picking acumen would soon be known from coast-to-coast like butter-and-toast. And now, I feel like a nobody; a...

There’s Reason to be ‘Blue’ in Michigan

There’s Reason to be ‘Blue’ in Michigan

It’s taken me a while to fully formulate my opinion on the debacle that has become Michigan Football. But, I believe I’m there now. Brady Hoke (cover photo) is the easy target here, and I completely understand why Big Blue fans are exasperated with their head coach. Hoke seems entirely clueless – bordering on downright stupidity – both...

Giants De-feather The Falcons, But The Road Ahead Makes Me Queasy

Giants De-feather The Falcons, But The Road Ahead Makes Me Queasy

The Giants stormed back with 20 unanswered points in the second half after being down 20-10 to ruin Osi Umenyiora’s return to the Meadowlands. I gotta be honest, when Antone Smith took the short pass to the house to put Hotlanta up 10, I really didn’t think the Giants had it in them to come back. I don’t know why but they just had that old...

Can’t Get Much Hotter: My Week-6 Picks

Can’t Get Much Hotter: My Week-6 Picks

‘Duck Tales’ is back, sports fans – and I think we have a few more winners in store for you this week. Santa has been hot these past three weeks (13-2); including a perfect 5-0 last Saturday. This week we’ll venture into Fort Worth – for a marquee matchup between a pair of Big XII powerhouses; with a brief stop at our...

So, Are The Giants For Real?

So, Are The Giants For Real?

I know. The Giants win a couple of games and Neal’s nowhere to be found. Crickets from the most vocal and boisterous Giants fan on the TSG staff. Well, right after the Giants finished wrecking the Texans, I flew to Ibiza for a company retreat. Big things in the work for Dailymotion, folks. Get on the ground floor now. I somehow managed to catch a flight...

Cash…MONEY: My Week-5 Picks

Cash…MONEY: My Week-5 Picks

4-1 last week, 8-2 the last two weeks; you already knew we were going with the ‘Duck Tales’ motif again. Here are my college football picks for week-five. Let’s do it. Last week: 4-1 POTW: 2-2 Season: 12-8 Saturday, Noon, ESPN2 Wyoming at Michigan State (-28) Wyoming is a semi-interesting team for a few different reasons. The Cowboys are...

Monday Night Football Trivia

Monday Night Football Trivia

In honor of tonight’s big Monday Night Football matchup between the Chicago Bears and New York Jets, I thought I’d put together a mini, five-question trivia exam – with all questions based on MNF games. Answers found at the bottom of the page. Good luck, sports fans! 1) Who holds the record for the most made field goals in a single MNF...

And the Heisman goes to..

And the Heisman goes to..

That’s Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher alongside 2013-14 Heisman Trophy winner, Jameis Winston. Since then, Winston has gone a bit crazy (a crab leg heist, a less than impressive ACC Media Day, issues with cafeteria decorum, etc.), so don’t be surprised when you don’t see him on this list. But, the kid can really play, so I will reserve the...

My Week-4 Picks (Sponsored by Duck Tales)

My Week-4 Picks (Sponsored by Duck Tales)

Call it superstitious. Call it crazy. Call it whatever you like. I was 4-1 with a “Duck Tales” cover photo last week, so you can bet your sweet behind I’m sticking with the theme this week. Here are my college football picks for tomorrow’s games (fingers crossed): Last week: 4-1 Season: 8-7 Pick of the Week: 2-1 Saturday, 7:00,...

Giants Cardinals 2014 Week 2 Reactions: Bring On The Pennington Jersey

Giants Cardinals 2014 Week 2 Reactions: Bring On The Pennington Jersey

I took last week’s loss way worse than this week’s because last week it still hadn’t sunk in yet that this team, in its current iteration, is garbage. HOT garbage. And, to be honest, I should take this week’s loss way worse: HOME OPENER, 90th anniversary celebrations, backup quarterback (even though NYG smells against backups for some...

Swimming in Gold: My Week-3 Picks

Swimming in Gold: My Week-3 Picks

Swimming in gold and stacks of green bills, folks – that’s what I’m about this week. My picks have been kinda “meh” in the first two weeks, but I’m anything but a quitter. Here’s this week’s picks – short and sweet. Last week: 2-3 Season: 4-6 Pick of The Week: 1-1 Saturday, Noon, ESPN East...

College Football: 5 Players Worth Seeing

College Football: 5 Players Worth Seeing

That’s LSU freshman RB Leonard Fournette (cover photo), striking his best “Heisman Pose” (against Sam Houston State, no less). It was a ridiculous, but forgivable offense; mainly because he’s a young, exciting prospect in the talent rich SEC. Fournette’s youthful exuberance did, however, get me a-thinkin’ about the wealth of...

Giants Lions 2014 Week 1 Reactions: What’s The Gameplan, Man?

Giants Lions 2014 Week 1 Reactions: What’s The Gameplan, Man?

I put off writing this blog post an entire day so I could get my wits about me. If I’d written this immediately following the game, well, that wasn’t going to happen because I couldn’t feel my fingers, hands, arms, legs, or face. Or feelings. I just switched off as a human. My girlfriend was with me towards the end of last season, so she saw a...

Hypocrisy Machine Still Going Strong

Hypocrisy Machine Still Going Strong

As you may have heard, this morning TMZ released the additional elevator footage from the Ray Rice domestic assault incident from last February at Atlantic City’s Revel casino (which in an ironic twist of fate, closed last week). And as you probably have seen by now, it’s not pretty… Letting the formal legal process play out (even though it...

This Old School NFL Commercials Compilation Kicks My Nostalgia in the Dick Butkus

This Old School NFL Commercials Compilation Kicks My Nostalgia in the Dick Butkus

“To help kick off the 2014-15 NFL season we take a look back at some of the best retro commercials of your favorite NFL stars.” How come today’s NFL commercials featuring the league’s top talent can’t be as good as these? What is it about these ads that brings a Schmitt-eating grin above my chin? That Refrigerator Perry...

Five Observations: College Football, Week 1

Five Observations: College Football, Week 1

It’s been said that you can never have too much of a good thing and–when it comes to the opening weekend of the college football season–I would have to agree. It’s a beautiful annual rite of autumn, and I enjoyed every minute of it (estimate: 16-18 hours of college pigskin for this guy). And Week 2 could be even better. Who knows. The...

College Football is Back! Degenerates Beware!

College Football is Back! Degenerates Beware!

Last night, after finally (and exhaustingly) sorting-out my SEC Network issues, I was able to sit down just in time to catch the South Carolina Gamecocks taking the field. If you’re a college football fan, you know the drill–2001: A Space Odyssey begins to play, all of Williams-Brice Stadium comes alive to the point of goosebumps, then their beloved...

Washington Redskins Name Change: Top Options

Washington Redskins Name Change: Top Options

It feels like the Washington Redskins name change controversy is now a weekly news topic, refusing to go away, and causing my buddy Christian Matthews (new PR guy) to double down on the Advil. Now, 50 senators have come out in favor of changing the team name despite the Redskins’ best Twitter efforts to convince the Senate otherwise. I’ve gone back...

What Do You Think About the Redskins Decision??

What Do You Think About the Redskins Decision??

Social media erupted this morning after the US Patent and Trademark Office announced their decision to revoke the patent for the Washington Redskins’ logo. We’re going to open up the phone lines at 8:00 tonight to hear YOUR thoughts on the issue, and what it means for the future of the Skins. We’ll also discuss the passing of Tony Gwynn as...
