Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

The NFL has mandated that all stadiums display fantasy stats on the scoreboard but is that going to make more fans go to the games when the at-home/bar experience is far more entertaining?

The Saints and Packers gave us a great start to the 2011 football season.  They also showed us why defense and special teams matter.

Mike Tomlin, the Next Messiah?

Mike Tomlin, head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, is the coming of the next messiah. Well, the Black one.

Let’s Be Honest (Super Bowl Week Edition)

Our unfiltered thoughts on the biggest game in sports

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports.

Evander Holyfield had NO business back in the boxing ring this week.

The free midseason preview of the NBA League Pass is a waste when you get matchups like Suns/Wizards, Pistons/Nets, and Raptors/Magic.

Kevin Durant just keeps getting better and better.
