Green Bay Packers: Good, bad, and ugly

Sometimes in sports, one week between games can make all the difference. The players are rested, more focused, and in some cases, play a team that isn’t as skilled. That was the case with the Green Bay Packers. In Week 1, they played the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and got outplayed in almost every way possible. In Week 2, they were matched up against the New York Jets, and after a half of worrying football, they came alive in the second half.…

Carolina Panthers must cut ties with Greg Hardy

As time goes on it’s becoming more difficult for the Carolina Panthers and Greg Hardy. His case is still in process and fans are already calling for his head. The Panthers recently stated they are sticking by the often troubled defensive end and will not part ways with him.

NFL Week 1 overreactions are simply that

After just one weekend of NFL action, over-exuberant and excessively despondent proclamations rule. The Seattle Seahawks are a dynasty! The Tom Brady, Bill Belichick reign is over! Andrew Luck is the next Peyton Manning!

Calm down…Only one week of the regular season has been played. It is illogical and, frankly, irresponsible to make such bold statements as if they are certain with a sample size of only one game. Such overreaction is more common among fans than the media, but writers, announcers, and pundits have been prone to making such claims as well.…
