The 2014 NCAA Tournament will be remembered for a long time. Here’s a look at the 10 best performers from this year’s event.
It’s easy to look at a draft immediately after it ends and declare a “winner” and “loser” because none of those draft picks have ever played a game. Now that those players have a full season under their belts (and with the 2014 draft right around the corner), it is a much better time to look at the outgoing rookie class and try to figure out which were the best picks.
There’s the old Seinfeld cliche that people are simply “rooting for laundry” when they cheer for professional sports teams. That may be true, but even the most adamant of Mets fans would agree there’s something about Derek Jeter that transcends the pinstripes that he has donned for the better part of two decades.
By now, Packers fans around the world have (likely) exhaled after their favorite team’s thrilling 33-28 victory over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.
I spent my Sunday afternoon like most Green Bay fans, alternating between sitting on the edge of my seat, pacing around the room and gesturing at the television.
But hey, it worked.
It’s felt like an eternity for Packers fans, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers will return to the playing field this Sunday for the first time since breaking his left collarbone in Green Bay’s Week 9 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced during his morning press conference on Thursday that “It’s time for Aaron to play.”
The Green Bay Packers have been without Aaron Rodgers for over 27 quarters of football so far this season, and it’s been pretty evident that the offense misses him. His absence has lead to some discussion on the word “valuable” and what it means to the Packers, and it’s also stirred debate as to where Rodgers fits in to the pantheon of the all-time great Green Bay players.
The NFL can provide fame and fortune for many of the people lucky enough to ever wear a pro football uniform. However, there’s an inherent risk that comes with each and every snap of the football.
Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley came face-to-face with that realization during. Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
