It’s a common theme on The Daily Blender that I call for coaches to be fired when they aren’t cutting it. Hell, if you and I didn’t do our jobs well and we were overpaid, not to mention in the public eye, we would face major scrutiny as well!Read More Week 11 NFL Picks
It’s really a marvel in this day and age for teams in a power conference to be undefeated two weeks into November. I don’t care if your schedule is soft (a la Clemson’s), no team is immune from a letdown here or there.Read More Week 12 CFB ‘Expert’ Picks
We’re a little more than halfway through the NFL season and what have we learned? New England may be the best team in the league (and yes they still are after the loss to Baltimore) but the competition may not be as far behind as many, including me would’ve thought last week.

D-day finally happened for Arizona Wildcats’ defensive coordinator Marcel Yates, whose lackluster schemes were being torched by seemingly everyone in the Pac-12 for the last several years.Read More Week 10 CFB ‘Expert’ Picks
I think it’s fair to say that after 7 weeks of the 2019 NFL season, the New England Patriots look like the best team far and away. Their defense has been nothing short of ’85 Bears-esque while the offense is cruising with the ageless Tom Brady. But on the NFC side, multiple Super Bowl contenders seem to have emerged.
