Could Aaron Rodgers Actually Leave the Packers?

I’m sure you’re aware that Aaron Rodgers has been guest-hosting Jeopardy! and that he’s expressed interest in becoming the full-time host of the show. Many in the sports media have interpreted this as a veiled threat at the Green Bay Packers organization: if you don’t give me what I want, then I’ll just leave and […]

The Nets’ Fatal Flaw?

Over the weekend, the LeBron-and-AD-less Lakers blew out the Harden-less Nets by 25, surprising just about everybody in the basketball world, including, I suspect, even LeBron and AD, who were in street clothes on the bench and were clearly loving every single minute of the game. Andre Drummond bullied LaMarcus Aldridge inside, and Dennis Schroder […]

2021 NFL Draft QB Rankings: #3, Zach Wilson

I understand the hype around this kid. Really, I do. I get why people say he shares a lot of the same traits as Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers. He can throw on the run; he’s got that flair where he makes impossible throws look easy. Really, I understand the hype. I’m sure everyone has […]

The Lakers Somehow Just Blew Out the Nets

Wow: the final from Brooklyn, Lakers 126, Nets 101. The Lakers were obviously without LeBron and AD, and Kyle Kuzma, Marc Gasol, and Wesley Matthews also missed the game. The Nets, despite having KD and Kyrie, were missing James Harden. Nobody expected this outcome. I think most people expected this game to be Nets 126, […]

NBA Player Rankings: 4/8/21

I decided to tweak the TNC formula to factor in the percent of a player’s made field goals he is assisted on. I just feel like the current formula is still a bit skewed towards big men. A thought occurred to me, after updating the rankings and seeing that Bam Adebayo was ranked ahead of […]

The Jets’ Disastrous Draft History

Mike Florio shared this graphic on his show yesterday showing the fate of the Jets’ first round picks since 2013: Obviously there’s some busts in there. But there are also some good players in there, too: Sheldon Richardson, Leonard Williams, Jamal Adams. It’s not like the Jets pick busts every year. This is encouraging for […]

Could Steph Curry Really End Up on the Lakers?

Much was made of the fact that the 2021 All Star Game was the first time even that LeBron and Steph had been on the same team. Brian Windhorst of ESPN reported that LeBron picked Steph for his team because he wants Steph to join the LA Lakers. This set off a buzz in the […]

🚨 Jets Trade Sam Darnold to Panthers

Via Adam Schefter: Congratulations to Sam Darnold for getting out of New York. He now gets to play with Christian McCaffrey (who we all know is a monster), DJ Moore (who’s a lot better than people realize) and Robby Anderson (again). Those guys represent a massive upgrade over the skill players Darnold was working with […]
