These Sleeved Jerseys Must Be Stopped

I advocated earlier on this website for the Warriors to be pioneers of offensive basketball. They have indeed done this, but not with the right meaning of offensive. You see, the Warriors were the first NBA team to make the switch to a sleeved alternate uniform, and the rest of the league is quickly following […]

All Hail Anquan

Anquan Boldin wasn’t supposed to be an elite receiver this season. Despite a big postseason during the Ravens’ run to the Super Bowl, he was well on the wrong side of 30 and coming off a relatively quiet 2012 regular season that most pundits felt was indicative of his level moving forward. The Ravens […]

How Bad Could It Get For Cal This Weekend?

The Cal defense has been regularly victimized already this season, giving up an average of 42 points per game on their way to a 1-2 record. To make matters worse, they are now heading to Autzen stadium, home to an Oregon team that has averaged over 60 points per game thus far, while […]

Kaepernick Should Run Wild On Sunday

In the Niners’ first two games, we haven’t seen much of Colin Kaepernick: Read Option God.

While the A’s make their playoff push, the Giants are beginning to think about next season. Former MLB player Wladimir Balentien, who just broke the single season home run record in Japan, has reportedly become a major target for the Giants this offseason. Balentien was once a top prospect (he played in the […]

Davis and Kaepernick Build on Postseason Connection

Coming into this season, there were plenty of NFL experts who were still espousing the notion that Vernon Davis and Colin Kaepernick could not coexist within the same offense. There was some evidence: After catching 6 balls in Kap’s first start against Chicago, Davis had just six receptions in the next six games. […]

The lack of big-time prospects in the Giants’ farm system has been well-documented. Although Kyle Crick has emerged as a possible future star this season, there is still little to be excited about in the rest of the organization. This is why Giants fans have resorted to being excited about a relief […]

Preseason football is something I tend to avoid. I don’t think anyone who watches it is a loser (I’m the guy who watched the live draw for the UEFA Champions League group stage yesterday. The whole thing) but it just isn’t for me. That being said, I actually tuned in to […]

Going All-In On Quinton Patton

Coming into the Draft, Quinton Patton was ranked as the #58 overall prospect by ESPN, and was picked by with the 128th overall selection by the San Francisco 49ers. Still, the selection received nothing more than muted praise from any draft pundits. Now that Patton had a minor breakout in the third […]

It was an exciting offseason for Golden State Warriors fans. Although the Dubs’ Dwight Howard chase proved fruitless, the unexpected addition of Andre Iguodala gave the Warriors a player with bona fide big-game experience, and gave them a player with defensive credentials and versatility unmatched on the roster. That being said, the team […]
