HOF Case – Andruw Jones

John Lepore | January 22nd, 2019

Andruw Jones is looking to improve on the 7.3% of the vote he received last year. This is his second year on the ballot and he is not trending in the right direction. That is a shame as he was an amazing centerfielder but will he get that plaque in Cooperstown.

Lakers Lose Heartbreaker in Houston

Troy Pierce | January 22nd, 2019

The Lakers and Rockets squared off, each squad missing key pieces. The Lakers are still without LeBron James and Rajon Rondo while the Rockets are still without Clint Capela and Chris Paul. The Lakers would eventually lose Lonzo Ball. Lonzo would roll his ankle in the third quarter; he did not return to the game.

Not The 49ers We Expected

Matt Woolsey | January 22nd, 2019

2018 was not the year 49er fans thought it would be. A potential playoff berth was in the discussion, not a 4-12 season that would be good enough for the second-worst record in the league.

My Follow-Up on Demarcus Cousins

Liam Romero | January 22nd, 2019

How the QB position has changed: ’02-’18

Nickolas Loza | January 22nd, 2018

Now we’re getting to the juicy bits, all the prolific passers of this era have really changed things for the future of the NFL. Teams are now passing more than ever and running less than ever, like in 2011 when teams that year on average passed 105 more times than they ran the ball, and in 2012, when teams passed on average 120 more times than they ran the ball. The times had changed very noticeably.
