Why Can't We Just Leave Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman Alone?

Ken Reed | Posted 03.17.2015 | Sports
Ken Reed

Collectively, we love to make snap judgments about people based on what they say (see Sherman) or what they don't say (see Lynch). The media have made caricatures out of these two guys the last couple of years based solely on how much they talk or don't talk.

This week the sun shines a little bit brighter, food tastes just a little bit better, and a stranger's scowl during the morning commute seems just a little bit less menacing. The world is a happier place this week, as the Dallas Cowboys were eliminated from the NFL playoffs.

Though a Pats fan dare not criticize beloved Bill, we hate to say that an end zone catch could have proven fatal for New England's prospects for the Super Bowl. Monday Morning quarterbacking is so much easier!

We should not disparage what was a quality season for the Cowboys -- including just their second playoff win in six years -- but it's hard not to ask, "What if?"

The NFL's Officiating Problem Has Become Laughably Awful

Jordan Schultz | Posted 03.07.2015 | Sports
Jordan Schultz

Unlike every other professional sport in North America, pro football does not provide full-time employment to its officials. As a result, it does not hold referees to the same standard of excellence found in other sports. For example, even if an official has a pattern of making inaccurate calls in game after game, he still won't be demoted. In fact, he can actually be promoted to a postseason opportunity because there is no threat of unemployment. In other words: A player can make one poor play and get cut, but a referee can make the same mistake over and over and be rewarded.

Tony Romo May Not Be NFL MVP, But He Has Become An Elite Quarterback

Jordan Schultz | Posted 02.16.2015 | Sports
Jordan Schultz

Tony Romo is not going to win the NFL MVP this season, that much is clear. There are too many other great quarterbacks having monstrous seasons: Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck, to name a few. And his teammate in the Dallas Cowboys backfield, running back DeMarco Murray, is firmly in the conversation as well. But at 34 years young, Romo, fresh off his second serious back surgery, is enjoying the best season of his illustrious (if highly criticized) career, and he has most definitely earned the right to be at least in the conversation about MVPs and elite quarterbacks.

Johnny Manziel's Time Has Come In Cleveland

It was "too fresh" in August or maybe September, but this is December, where the playoffs are decided. Pettine's choice of vernacular is downright laughable and inexcusable, and a reminder that he remains out of his league, quite literally. Johnny Manziel may not turn out to be the savior for the Browns, but now is the time to find out. The clock is ticking on the Browns season.

Richard Sherman's Big Mouth Will Pay Dividends in the Super Bowl

Richard Sherman's iconic postgame interview with Erin Andrews was candid, emotional, unsportsmanlike, and definitely EXTRA. Even so, as a sports fan, I loved Sherman's interview because it captured the heart of a city with a big mouth.
