  • Fantasy Football: Who to start and sit in Week 4

    Ah yes, welcome to the start of bye weeks. Deciding who to start on your fantasy football team is only getting tougher. Here's my weekly take on some potential trust-or-bust players. Start: Alshon Jeffery If you're an Alshon Jeffery owner, you don't need me to tell you that Jeffery's numbers have been less than ideal for someone that you very possibly drafted as your WR1. In standard scoring, he has hit double digits just once this season-- and barely. But don't give up yet-- this week versus a WR-friendly Detroit Lions defense could be just what Jeffery needs to turn his season around. A home game against a secondary that has already allowed ten touchdowns to wide receivers this season should

  • Patriots have perfect attendance at Thursday walkthrough

    FOXBORO - A long, detailed, well-written, behind-the-scenes look at Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels achieves two things. The article, written for Bleacher Report by longtime NFL reporter Dan Pompei , investigates the growth of McDaniels as a person and coach since his ill-fated run as Denver Broncos head coach. And it serves as a de facto announcement of McDaniels’ suitability and availability as a head coaching candidate after 2016. McDaniels deserves the recognition and the second chance. Mistakes and miscalculations he made when he was 33 and 34 shouldn’t be a millstone for the rest of his coaching career. If second chances weren’t given to Bill Belichick, Mike Shanahan and Tony

  • Pitcher who allowed Tim Tebow's home run tweets funny response

    St. Louis Cardinals prospect John Kilichowski will forever be the answer to a trivia question no one thought would exist even two months ago. During Wednesday’s instructional league game against the New York Mets, he was the pitcher who allowed a home run to Tim Tebow in Tebow’s first ever professional at-bat. On the first pitch he saw, Tebow took a high-and-outside fastball from Kilichowski and basically tomahawked it over the fence in left-center field.

  • UFC Vet Held At Gunpoint For Alleged Hit-And-Run

    Somebody just got run over in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and believe it or not, the driver was not former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Instead, it appears to be ex-UFC welterweight Henry Martinez, who is accused of plowing through a bicyclist on I-25 and leaving the scene of an accident, in addition to driving on a revoked license, according to KRQE.com. But he didn't get very far. That's because a concerned citizen, who just so happened to be packing heat, was able to track down the inactive mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and hold him at gunpoint until police arrived.
