Orton a Better Fit than Kolb for Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals gave up the farm (a second-round pick and stud CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie) to acquire QB Kevin Kolb from the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday.  While I understand why the Cards had to pull the trigger, there was a much cheaper alternative out there. Denver Broncos QB Kyle Orton everyone! Seriously, Orton would have been…

Davis Firing the Right Thing at the Wrong Time

Let me start by saying I do not have a problem with the University of North Carolina firing Butch Davis. He has been connected to John Blake, a former assistant coach/recruiting coordinator who worked to steer players to late NFL agent Gary Wichard and reported Blake had received more than $31,000 from Wichard, though Blake’s attorneys…

Brown Doing the Right Thing in not Trading Palmer

Mark July 27, 2011 as an important day in sports history.  That is because this is the first time I will take Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown in ANYTHING. Brown has come out publicly and said that he will not trade Carson Palmer.  He said that Palmer signed a contract, and expects him to abide…

How I Would Fix the NBA

Now that the NFL is back in full swing (no credit to the owners, by the way), the focus (or lack thereof) is on the NBA lockout.  The NBA’s labor impasse may be nasty enough to last all summer and can potentially wipe out the entire 2011-2012 NBA season. I was reading Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s commentary…

Hey MLB: GET INSTANT REPLAY!!!

I am so, so sick and tired of these baseball “purists” who argue against instant replay, so I am going to keep this rant short. The more Major League Baseball argues against instant replay, it’ll risk having games end like the Pirates-Braves game last night.  I’ll let you guys see for yourselves… Memo to MLB:…

No Credit to the NFL for Doing the Right Thing

“WHOO-HOO!!!” That was what I yelled when the NFL and the NFLPA officially agreed on a deal that ended the NFL lockout earlier today.  Fantasy football players everywhere and yours truly are celebrating. Pleasant thoughts aside, now let’s get real on one thing: this damn lockout should have never happened.  How was it so difficult…

Woods Fired His Caddie: Who Cares?

I’m sure everyone knows about the “firing heard around the world” by now. Tiger Woods clipped his caddie/good friend Steve Williams, with Woods stating he needs to make “changes” in his life. Now people in the sports media are trying to interpret Woods’ rather cryptic statement and Williams’ candid response to see if there were…
