The Future of Flash Gordon

From November 17, 2013 to December 8, 2013, Josh Gordon was the greatest receiver in NFL history. He went for 125 yards in Week 11, followed that up with 237 yards in Week 12, somehow outdid himself the next week going for 261 yards, and closed with 151 yards against the Patriots. In true Browns...

Legion of Bust

The Seattle Seahawks. Just hearing their name should cause an immediate response: you either love them or you hate them. Even when I could not differentiate between the Seahawks and the Eagles, I was able to guess who the Seahawks were based on people’s reactions. They are the team you love to hate, yet being...

Eight-Win Jacob DeGrom is Your Obvious Cy Young Winner

On Sunday, Jacob DeGrom had another magnificent outing for the New York Mets. Facing the MLB-leading Boston Red Sox, he surrendered just three runs over seven innings pitched, extending his single-season record of consecutive starts allowing three or fewer runs to 27. He allowed just one walk and recorded 12 strikeouts against one of the...

Bell’s Unwell: Le’Veon’s Potential Landing Spots

Week 2 of the NFL season is already here, but Le’Veon Bell is not. Begrudged over his third straight franchise tag from the Steelers, Bell has hidden behind agent Adisa Bakari. As both parties – Bell and the Steelers – seem to be in a stalemate, it is unclear when we will next see No....

Why the Raiders won the Khalil Mack trade

Reactions to the Oakland Raiders’ trade of superstar defensive end Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears on September 1st have poured in from every corner of the NFL world. The consensus on the deal is that Mack’s move to the Windy City is equally as damning for the Raiders as it is thrilling for the...

Out West, A Mixed Bag for PAC-12 New Hires

The Pac-12 promised to be one of college football’s most interesting conferences in 2018 after five new head coaches were hired this offseason to lead their programs to “After Dark” supremacy – and what a quintet we have on our hands. First-time head coaches Mario Cristobal and Justin Smith were tabbed at Oregon and Oregon...

This is a column written for the Georgetown Voice. It can be found on their website here. While many of my fellow Georgetowners escaped to tropical paradises in the Caribbean for spring break, dropping serious coin on beachside resorts and fruity alcoholic drinks, I flew out to the aesthetically bland Phoenix, Arizona. Far from any…

Manziel, Bridgewater, Watkins, Clowney. These are the names that come to mind when thinking about this year’s NFL draft. These players have been in front of the ESPN cameras for almost the past two years due to their professional potential and even more so for their actions off the field. It is often the case,…

Halftime is extremely excited to get off of the European continent and review a team with a little more spice. Colombia’s footballing stock has risen over the past few years with the advent of players like Jackson Martinez, James Rodriguez, Fredy Guarín, and of course Monaco frontman Radamel Falcao. Colombia placed into a relatively even…

Today, it is impossible to read an article about sports and avoid having a bunch of numbers thrown in your face. In the last ten years, the way that sports is analyzed and reported has completely transformed. In a business that used to be centered on great stories, it is interesting that data analysis has…

Odds are, your bracket has fallen apart.  Maybe you had Duke in the Final Four.  Maybe you had Wichita St. proving all of its critics wrong and winning it all.  Maybe, you had a perfect first day bracket until New Mexico St. had to go ruin an incredible comeback in the night’s final matchup and…

As the NBA season begins to wind down, the teams like Philadelphia and Milwaukee that have successfully gone about demolishing their rosters have distinguished themselves in the race to tank. Other squads like Detroit and Cleveland now find themselves in the NBA’s unenviable middle ground. They’re not bad enough to get a valuable draft pick,…

When it comes right down to it, the Croatians are a fun team to watch. Sadly, despite putting on good shows, they have performed less than admirably these past 12 months against national squads like Scotland, Switzerland, and Serbia (something about S countries gets ‘em). Despite faltering, the Mediterranean’s boast an impressive squad and will…

Michael Vick’s Second Chance is good for the NFL

Michael Vick’s Second Chance is good for the NFL

By:

The New York Jets recently released former AFC champion contending quarterback Mark Sanchez and signed former Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. Both these moves were hopefully made with the sole purpose of fixing what was essentially a dumpster fire at the quarterback position. However, just like the signing of TIm Tebow, many will wonder if the…

Jabari Parker does not lose often. During his four years of high school, it only happened fifteen times, nine of which came during his freshman year; otherwise, Parker accumulated 118 wins and four state championships with Chicago-based Simeon High School, earning him the opportunity to attend (on athletic scholarship) any university in the country. Parker…
