Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 15)

Well the honeymoon phase is over in Cleveland after Johnny Manziel got his first start for the Browns in Week 15. There had been plenty of build up after Manziel dropped to 23 in the 2014 draft despite his great playmaking ability in college. He was not considered the most pro-ready quarterback in the draft though. His size scared many and his multiple issues off of the field made a lot of teams pass on him.

NHL Week in Review (December 7-13)

When tragedy strikes and someone passes away the effect is felt by anyone who was helped by that person. Generally that means family and friends who have lived or worked alongside that person who are effected by the death. When that death reaches into the public space the list of people effected grows beyond the immediate friends and family. When that death is a hockey player in one of the most loyal and dedicated fan bases in the world that list grows to an entire province.

History Made in Vegas (TUF 20 Finale Review)

Women’s fighting in the UFC took another huge step in Vegas as the year continues to come to a close. It wasn’t long ago that women in the UFC were not even thought of as the executives at the promotion refused to consider them. That has changed in recent years and a division that was said to have nowhere near the talent has become one of the most entertaining divisions in the UFC. Ronda Rousey rules the division with little to no competition but her star power alone can boost any weight division. Aside from Rousey though, the division has shown its true colours putting on close fights that have been some of the best on every card they are involved in.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 14)

The Battle of the Bay has not been the usual close battle that many fans have hoped for time and time again. A big part of that is the evolution of the 49ers into one of the elite teams of the NFL. They have been close multiple times in the last few years to winning a Super Bowl but have fallen just short. Despite their inability to win the big game the Niners have remained one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL and have consistently been the better team in their matchups with Oakland.
