New England Patriots: The End of “Any Given Sunday”

"On any given Sunday, any team in the NFL can beat any other team". These words, spoken by former commissioner Bert Bell, started out as the NFL's boast during its meteoric rise to popularity and acclaim. Today, however, it seems it has become a promise unfulfilled. Roger Goodell and league brass have tried to implement a system that levels the playing field, to handicap the league, so that all 32

Tom Brady: What Legacy is he Leaving?

What does a professional athlete play for? Money? Power? Prestige? For the modestly successful athlete, perhaps it is for one of these three things. But these athletes seem to be quickly forgotten. Just last year, Cam Newton seemed to be more concerned with having fun than making a lasting mark, and already Carolina has slumped back to mediocrity.

Steve Jobs: Great Entrepreneur, or Vain Egoist?

Clemson Tigers: Memorable Champions, or Flash in the pan?

Many anticipated Monday's rematch of last year's Alabama-Clemson title game to be an even better game and sure enough it was, with Clemson pulling the shocking upset of the supposedly unbeatable Crimson Tide on a touchdown pass with a mere second left.

Detroit Lions: The Curse Of Bobby Layne Lingers On

Sports fans have always been a superstitious bunch. Whether it's lucky clothes, routines, or spots on the couch, fans have always come up with odd reasons for their teams' successes or failures. Yet in recent years due to some good general managing in baseball, some supposedly infamous curses-specifically the curses of the bambino and billy goat have been exposed as just silly stories. Yet in the NFL there's one curse
