Packers Should Punt NFC North Title

On December 28, 2015, in NFL, by Stephen

Entering their bye in Week 7, Green Bay was in the discussion for best team in the NFL. Since then, the Packers have gone 4-5 straight-up and against the spread. The Packers’ offense got broken. It remains unfixed. So, what to do about it? Here is my suggestion: Tank this week. The Packers should sit […]

Clippers Christmas Rant

On December 26, 2015, in NBA, by Stephen

I wish the NBA wouldn’t schedule any games on Christmas. They just ruin the holiday. At least they ruined mine big-time. It started so well Friday with my three little girls gleefully opening their Christmas presents, followed by a great family meal and a relaxing family day.

Giants-Vikings Free Play

On December 24, 2015, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen

Giants plus 5 1/2 at Vikings Odell Beckham Jr. is suspended for this game as he should be for his disgraceful behavior and cheap shots against Josh Norman and the Panthers last week.

Hopefully neither will be the case today because I’m taking double-digits with Philadelphia hosting Memphis. The Grizzlies are just 15-14 on the season. That record is somewhat skewed by playing the league’s most […]

Punk Beckham Deserves Suspension

On December 21, 2015, in NFL, by Stephen

The New York Giants almost pulled a comeback for the ages coming down from 35-7 to tie unbeaten Carolina before losing on a last-second field goal. Unfortunately the Giants’ stirring comeback takes a backseat to the dirty, unsportsmanlike, cheap shot plays of Odell Beckham Jr. He was called for three personal fouls – and could […]

Falcons could set dubious record

On December 19, 2015, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover No NFL team has started 5-0 and finished below .500 since the leagues merged in 1970. That string could be broken by the 6-7 Atlanta Falcons. Since averaging 29.8 points during their first five games – all victories – the Falcons have averaged a puny 14.6 points during their last eight games […]
