SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

Zero doubt about that.

If he had been from a different country he would have been crowned as such by the media after the 1998 Olympics.

He's the Michael Jordan of track. Not an athlete in history that comes close. Hope we can see a whole lot more of him before he retires.

Hope Solo Calls Sweden 'Cowards' After U.S. Loses Quarterfinal

Bigger story, or perhaps non-story ...

Sweden players don't call Hope Solo a sore loser.

Tim Tebow Wants to Play Baseball

Flutie was good in the CFL because he thought the game quicker than his opponents and had an awesome arm. Yeah, he could run and that helped open up the field, but he ran to create passing lanes. Don't forget he was the best US College QB and the only reason he didn't get a shot right away in the NFL was his height.

Tebow can run, but he can't throw, and he's even worse throwing on the move. With his limited skill set he's actually better suited to the NFL game under an offensive coordinator who can dumb down the offense and give him 2 reads maximum on each play while sitting in the pocket (Andy Reid fits here). He played his College career behind an offensive line that was as talented as some current NFL teams have and that is the primary reason for his amateur success. I'm not dismissing the fact he's got a lot of winner in his makeup, he just does not have the skills or ability.

It's as much a reach to think Tebow could play in the CFL as it is the MLB.

Tim Tebow Wants to Play Baseball

Hard to imagine how an athlete who wasn't able to compete at the professional level due to a lack of both throwing accuracy and the ability to adjust to the speed of the pro game translates into someone who can hit pro or semi-pro level pitching.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I guess people know who the guy is today and that must have been his goal in life. Should have given more than 2 minutes thought to coming up with a meaningful message if he planned on changing lyrics so the entire audience wonder if the dude was stoned or something ... wtf.

Tim Duncan announces retirement

NBA : NHL :: Tim Duncan : Niklas Lidstrom

Like that.

How about NFL : Charles Woodson ?

Aside from the fact he's an incredible athlete, Woodson also does his job at the highest level playing wherever doing whatever is asked of him, wins, and makes everyone around him better.

Tim Duncan announces retirement

Slower, shorter, and less athletic than pretty much anyone he was matched up against yet dominated because he was so fundamentally sound. His presence made everyone around him better. He could score 12 points and be the key player on the court ... but he would never accept the credit for it. Signed team friendly contracts to enable his team to remain competitive.
