The NBA All-Overpaid Team

ESPN Insider Larry Coon wrote his annual analysis of the NBA's most over and underpaid players. Using a statistical regression model that I might have understood had I paid more attention to my Stats teacher in college, he breaks ...

Iker Casillas has hinted that a possible move away from Real Madrid. Where will he land?

Since breaking his hand last season, San Iker has been put through the Alex Smith treatment with Diego Lopez playing his Colin Kaepernick. Casillas has seen exactly 105 minutes of playing time this season, all of them in the Champions ...

I love that. Typical reactions from each country: American optimism and British self loathing.

Argentina's group is quite hilarious. Nigeria better not throw away their Round of 16 spot against Bosnia.

Isn't that the evil nature of the fickle World Cup beast? It couldn't have gone much worse for us.

-Mike Wallace
-Dannell Ellerbe
-Steven Jackson
-Jared Cook
-Greg Jennings

Through two whole games and parts of two others Josh McCown has proven that he deserves a legitimate shot at a starting job somewhere in the NFL in 2014.

So far only one person, @Josh Mahoney, has mentioned Manning's ankle. That could be a serious factor in the outcome of this game. Denver has one of the best o-lines this year, but all it takes is one breakdown ...

Mr. Mighty Wings definitely isn't going anywhere with that monster contract, which puts pressure on Newsome to nail the draft in the next few seasons. I agree with @Tyler Olson that the O-line is the place to start and ...

@Asa Beal I think the question isn't whether Bowe is elite statistically or not, but whether the Chiefs are better or worse without him at this current point in the season considering his recent arrest. We can't talk ...
