Chasing the Ghost

Did Los Angeles Take Away Russell Westbrook's Joy for the Game?

In the halftime show of opening night between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers, Charles Barkley had to get something off his chest and I didn’t see it coming on the first game of the season.

Every NFL Team's Best Franchise Quarterbacks in History

Recently I wrote about the quarterbacks for the Pittsburgh Steelers and noted that Terry Bradshaw and Ben Roethlisberger were probably the only true franchise QBs to ever play in Pittsburgh. That leads me to wonder, of all 32 NFL teams, who was (or is) each club’s “franchise” quarterback?

Replacing a Pittsburgh Steelers Legend

In a previous article, I wrote about Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky and the chances of losing his job to rookie Kenny Pickett. In week two of the NFL season, the Steelers lost to the New England Patriots in Pittsburgh’s season home opener. Many fans were chanting “We want Kenny” as Trubisky had his second straight mediocre game. As Ben Roethlisberger retired af ...

Patrick Mahomes vs Tom Brady: Who'll Come Out on Top in 2022?

Prior to last season, the two teams that were said to be going head to head for Super Bowl glory were the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As it turned out, neither team made it through the playoffs, and the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in a title decider that no one would have predicted. Key to the rivalry between the Chiefs and the Buccane ...

The Superstars Competition

If you were watching sports in the 1970s and 1980s then you were lucky to have witnessed perhaps two of the best decades in sports history. During those 20 years, the world got to see some of the best players and athletes in history in an array of sports. In baseball, Pete Rose was in his prime and Hank Aaron was breaking the all-time home run record. They were just two of man ...

Will the Real NFL G.O.A.T. Please Stand Up

For years I’ve contended that Tom Brady is NOT the G.O.A.T. There will be tons of fans and critics who think I’m crazy. However, my belief has always been that Brady, while a great quarterback, was more a product of his system and the talent put around him rather than having pure athletic or quarterback skills. He certainly has not been or is as physically talented as, say, Joh ...

A Fresh 2021 New England Patriots Look to Bounce Back

Newton’s lack of consistency and inability to be healthy plagued New England. As the Patriots dynasty era hit a wall. Missing the playoff for the first time since 2007, going 7-9 in 2020. This ...

Comparing the Greatest Quarterbacks of All Time

Leading up to Super Bowl LV nearly all the conversation is centering around Tom Brady and his 10 Super Bowl appearances and by winning six thus far, he is the greatest of all time at quarterback. There are few that will disagree with that assessment however I’m not ready to crown Brady the all-time king. I’ve seen discussion boards where fans have declared Tom Brady the greate ...

The Greatest NBA Players of All Time

There has been much conversation this year about how LeBron James is the greatest player in the history of the National Basketball Association. Most of the discussion centers around a comparison between “King James” and the great Michael Jordan. The debate rages almost daily but unfair to some of the other all-time greats is the fact they aren’t thrown into the mix. If you had ...
