Dolphins-Patriots Free Sunday Play

On December 29, 2019, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover Dolphins at Patriots Under 45 Now that winter is here the Patriots become more the Sony Michel Show rather than being about Tom Brady. Brady has had only one passer rating above 97 during his last 10 games. A combination of age finally taking its toll on the 42-year-old, only having one […]

Sad Demise of Cincinnati Bengals

On November 11, 2019, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover Some NFL teams never recover from a loss. The Atlanta Falcons blew a 25-point third quarter lead to the Patriots in the 2016 Super Bowl. In the 2 1/2-plus years since then they are 20-23 and Dan Quinn isn’t likely to return as head coach next season. Even sadder than the Falcons, […]

It’s a golden chance for the Dolphins to get their first and probably only victory of the season. The Dolphins are worse than an expansion team. But the Redskins could be […]

Bill Belichick vs. Vince Lombardi

On September 16, 2019, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover As far as poker rooms in Las Vegas, let’s just say the one at Sam’s Town isn’t the Bellagio. It was at Sam’s Town that I caught a bizarre argument during a poker tournament. A middle-aged guy was screaming at another poker player that Vince Lombardi was a far better coach than […]
