Rashad Greene making his presence felt for Jaguars

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Throughout his star-studded career at Florida State, Rashad Greene showed that he not only could catch the ball and score touchdowns; he showed that he was a winner. Ask Jameis Winston. During his senior season in 2014, Greene caught 99 balls for 1,365 yards and 7 touchdowns. As an enticement to an NFL team considering taking him in the draft, Greene also returned 15 punts, averaging 10.7 yards per return. When draft day 2015 came along, no one expected Greene…

Black Celebration: Jax Jaguars put up 51 on Indianapolis Colts

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The trajectory of a typical 21st century Jacksonville Jaguars season is familiar. Hope, during the draft, and the free agency class, and the preseason, as the best case scenarios swirl. Then reality hits. Not all at once, but like 16 punches to the face. The Jaguars had felt the full impact of eight of them this year, coming into a home showdown against the Matt Hasselbeck led Indianapolis Colts. On Sunday, they gave it to another team on the chin, for…

Not 4th down for LA, but surely 3rd and long

in Sports/Top Headlines by

If there’s one thing the NFL doesn’t want associated with moving a team or teams to Los Angeles, it’s confusion. Too late. With each delay in the process, as well-intentioned as they might be, the league perplexes residents of LA, St. Louis, Oakland and San Diego. Not to mention fans of the Rams, Raiders and Chargers, wherever else they reside. This week’s move to punt any decision to Jan. 13 in Houston, a delay of nearly six weeks, was deemed…

Matt Hasselbeck, Jameis Winston headline battle for the ages in Indy

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Matt Hasselbeck still plays young. The 40-year-old quarterback has won all three of his starts this season, kept the Colts in contention for a third straight AFC South title, and still enjoys life in the NFL. Jameis Winston looks more polished than a 21-year-old rookie. After a rugged start, Tampa Bay’s new franchise quarterback has rallied to win three of four and gotten the Buccaneers back into playoff contention. No, Sunday’s game might not be the marquee matchup between No.…

Even the Super Bowl has gone partisan

in Apolitical by

In a time of increasing political polarization, even the Super Bowl is dividing Americans along party lines. A new Public Policy Polling national survey finds that 32% of voters in the country are rooting for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, compared to 22% who prefer the Indianapolis Colts. Democrats strongly prefer the Saints, by a 36-21 margin. But Republicans are narrowly going for the Colts, 26-25. Independents lean toward the Saints as well, 33-20. Perhaps the most interesting thing…

Isn’t the whole Tony Dungy affair beginning to creep you out?

in Peter/Sports by

Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy rejoined his team Thursday, a week after his oldest son’s death of an apparent suicide. Dungy is expected to be on the sideline Sunday when the Colts (13-2) host Arizona in the regular-season finale. This story has bothered me from day one, especially because I have two teenage siblings, which makes me think, probably foolishly, that I understand how difficult it is for kids to grow up in this day and age. But to see…
