My top 10 Scariest NFL Defensive Players of All-Time

On October 31, 2016, in NFL, by Stephen

In celebration of Halloween here are the top 10 scariest NFL defensive players I ever saw play: 10. Ted Hendricks: His nickname was the Mad Stork. That says it all. 9. Rich Jackson: A knee injury cut his career short in the early 70’s, but for five years this Broncos pass rusher was as feared […]

Stephen Nover Free Tuesday NHL Play

Sharks plus $1.02 at Islanders San Jose owned the best road record in hockey last season. I like the Sharks in this road setting following their first defeat of the season. San Jose is stewing from an embarrassing 7-4 loss to the Rangers at Madison Square Garden last night. So this is a short trip […]

10. Same old Raiders. 9. Like him or not, Colin Kaepernick is a huge upgrade on Blaine Gabbert.

Capitals minus $1.15 at Penguins I’m not in love with laying a road price against the defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins, who have won 25 of their last 33 home matchups, but I want the Capitals going for me in this opening game of the season. And it’s not just because Sidney Crosby is out […]

10 NFL Observations from Week 5

On October 10, 2016, in NFL, by Stephen

Here are my 10 weekly NFL observations from Week 5: 10. Jim Schwartz still can’t win in Detroit. I’m being a little snide here as I haven’t liked a Lions coach since Buddy Parker. Schwartz is an early candidate for Defensive Coordinator of the Year for turning around the Eagles. 9. The NFC East is […]
