Greatest running back dealing with dementia

On June 6, 2019, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover It was with tremendous sadness that I read Gale Sayers has severe dementia. The 6-footer is down to 130 pounds, hardly talks and can’t write anymore. How good of a football player was Gale Sayers? “His like will never be seen again,” George Halas said of Sayers. That’s true. But I will […]

RIP Bart Starr

On May 26, 2019, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover Bart Starr was Joe Montana before Joe Montana. Starr was that good. Outstanding leader, tremendous accuracy, exellent play-caller, clutch performer. Starr, 85, had been in ill health and died today. These were Starr’s postseason numbers: 9-1 record, 15-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio, 8.2 yards per pass. Mind you this was in the 1960’s when […]

By Stephen Nover Tony Romo has rapidly become one of my favorite NFL analysts. But if a Rams defender breathes on Tom Brady and a roughing-the-passer penalty is then called, don’t blame Romo for not mentioning there was a yes/no prop bet if this would happen to Brady. Sports wagering is now legal in seven […]

On January 21, 2019, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover How can you not have strong feelings after watching Sunday’s NFL title games? Here are mine. NFL officials call every tick-tack penalty from phantom holding calls to bogus roughing the passer calls. Then, in the biggest NFC game of the season, they blatantly miss the most obvious pass interference call of the […]

Stephen Nover Free Sunday NFL Play

On December 15, 2018, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover Packers at Bears Under 45 1/2 There is a big reason why you can’t take the Packers in this game. It is the same reason why Under the total is the best way to get involved in this matchup. That reason goes by the name of Jason Spriggs. He’s an offensive right […]
