Dom Capers, Here’s the Door

It’s pretty simple: Dom Capers needs to be fired, and he should have been fired awhile ago. The Packers have an elite quarterback. His three interceptions during a pretty rusty performance did this team no favors, but this is a defense that made DaShone Kizer and the winless Browns look competent on offense last week. This is also a defense that is the reason they haven’t won more than one Super Bowl with arguably the best or at-worst second-best quarterback in the league. Year after year, the defense has let them down. The one year Green Bay had a...

Saga Over: Duchene to Sens, Turris to Preds

It had been apparent for a long time: the Colorado Avalanche and center Matt Duchene needed to part ways. General manager and Avalanche legend Joe Sakic held onto Duchene past the 2017 NHL Draft in Chicago after the team had a dismal 2016-17 campaign, finishing with a league-worst 48 points. It created an awkward beginning to training camp and start of the 2017-18 season, where Duchene reported to training camp and said he basically was only there for his teammates. But his presence probably made it awkward for them, as well. Shortly into this season, the saga has finally...

Aaron Rodgers Broke Dallas’ Heart Again

When will teams learn? They just never may, I guess. Remember last year in the NFC Divisional Round when Aaron Rodgers found tight end Jared Cook for an improbably completion that set up Mason Crosby’s field goal to end Dallas’ season? The Cowboys forgot that Aaron Rodgers was a bad man in the two-minute drill. After blowing a 21-6 lead, the Cowboys had the ball deep in Green Bay territory, but a Dak Prescott read-option touchdown left 1:13 left on the clock for Aaron Rodgers. BIG mistake. Rodgers led the Packers down the field 75 yards in 62 seconds...

Connor McDavid Dominates Opening Night with Hat Trick

The Hart Trophy winner quickly continued where he left off in the Oilers’ 3-0 opening night win as they hosted Calgary. No Edmonton Oiler had ever recorded a hat trick on opening night. The young superstar had one hatty coming in, and he added another one to his name Wednesday night in the Battle of Alberta. Connor McDavid #1 on the year in the Battle of Alberta. #Oilers #Flames pic.twitter.com/EhZOWUsYJX — Go With The Flow (@GWTFpodcast) October 5, 2017 McDavid 0 to 100 real quick pic.twitter.com/fmNV8VZPUu — Dimitri Filipovic (@DimFilipovic) October 5, 2017 There is no defense for that....

Rodgers, Allison, and Banged Up Packers Find a Way Against Bengals

I’m still catching my breath. What an absolutely thrilling game. The Packers came into this game without one of their top corners (Davon House), a top receiver (Randall Cobb), best two defensive players (Mike Daniels and Nick Perry), their Pro Bowl left tackle (David Bakhtiari), and off a tough loss in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Green Bay went down 21-7 at halftime, with the deficit aided by Aaron Rodgers’ second career pick-six. It was looking like another daunting task for an injured Packers squad to try and compete. Good teams find a way, though, and the Pack...

UPDATE: It Happened, Verlander to Houston

In order for a player to be on a postseason roster, they need to be traded before midnight. The Astros and Tigers reportedly agreed on players and money, but one more component was needed to bolster Houston’s rotation in time for a deep playoff run. I have been told that Verlander deal is off. Apparently he didn't waive no trade clause. Again, Verlander deal has been nixed — Chris McCosky (@cmccosky) September 1, 2017 Detroit had already found a way to dump a huge salary by dealing Justin Upton to the Angels, but Verlander has nixed a deal to...

VIDEO: Yankees, Tigers Brawl It Out

Thursday is usually getaway day in Major League Baseball, but a few of these combatants will be getting on the team plane with a few extra bumps and bruises. Yankees catcher Austin Romine had some choice words for future Hall of Famer Miguel Cabrera, and check out the video to see what transpired. BASEBALL FIIIIIIIIGHT!!!! pic.twitter.com/gsLinJZ4Vr — Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) August 24, 2017 First off: how about those sprints from the bullpen? Olympian speed. And as Dallas Braden astutely pointed out, Gary Sanchez – the other New York catcher – came in for a piece of the pie. Replay...

Tiger Woods Was on a Shit Ton of Drugs the Night of His DUI Arrest

Well, as it turns out, Tiger Woods’ DUI arrest was probably warranted. The former golf star’s toxicology report was released to the public by the Palm Beach Sheriff County’s office, and get a load of the combination of stuff this cat was under: Hydrocodone, the generic form of a painkiller branded as Vicodin. Hydromorphone, a strong painkiller commonly known as Dilaudid. Alprazolam, a mood and sleep drug commonly known as Xanax. (The report also listed Alpha-Hydroxy Alprazolam, which is what Xanax becomes when it breaks down in the system.) Zolpidem, a sleep drug commonly known as Ambien. Delta-9 carboxy...

Yankees Get Touch of Gray at Deadline

The Yankees have made their blockbuster move at the trade deadline. With Michael Pineda going down for the season and Masahiro Tanaka’s struggles, it was inevitable that the surging-again Yankees were going to make a starting move for pitching. Source: Gray to Yankees done. Fowler, Mateo, Kaprelian coming back. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 31, 2017 Sonny Gray is a great gamble for New York. Although losing Jorge Mateo stings, the Yankees held onto their top-five prospects in the system, which includes Clint Frazier and Gleyber Torres. The AL East race between Boston, New York, and hey, maybe even...
