Sports Bio

I follow the teams from Dallas-Fort Worth because I grew up with them, but I've adopted the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only pro team my new hometown is ever likely to get. The most memorable sporting event I attended live was game 6 of the NBA Western Conference finals in 1988 at Reunion Arena -- Mavericks vs. Lakers -- when Mark Aguirre and his prodigious caboose received half the game MVP award, and the 17,007 fans in attendance received the other half.

NFL Pick 'Em Week 15: NFC Least Edition

Oh and DUUUUVVVAAALLL!!! (Man, we suck, but I just can't bail on them.)

Hard to believe they've fallen so fast. When Minshew came in I thought if he could just be average the great defense would be enough to win some games. Now I watch the defense with hands over my face.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

As much as I like hating the Patriots, this one seems like an unintentional error. Maybe I'd be more suspicious if they filmed the Ravens instead of the Bengals.

The NFL should make a division ineligible for the playoffs that season if no team finishes with a winning record.

During Sunday's Jags game and after the final whistle, Yannick Ngakoue and Philip Rivers had a lot to say to each other. We get to hear it because Ngakoue was mic'ed and it's funny. Tyrann Matthieu calls Rivers the "funniest trash-talker ever".

NBA Pick 'Em Week 8: 50 Points No Threes Edition

The networks flexed two games this week. TNT swapped out Heat/Hawks on Tuesday in favor of Nuggets/76ers and ESPN dumped Warriors/Jazz for Clippers/Timberwolves. You know things have changed in the NBA when Golden State is a team ESPN doesn't want to broadcast.

The Niners/Packers game tonight is appealingly close in predictive expectations: San Fran by 3 (Vegas), 3 (538) and 56% (Yahoo). George Kittle is expected back along with Deebo Samuel and Emmanuel Sanders. I'm picking them at home by that field goal.

Another close one is Raiders at Jets, with Oakland by 3 (Vegas), 54% (Yahoo) and Nate Silver's Atari XE punting by calling it a 50/50. Sam Darnold's not seeing ghosts any more but I'm picking the Raiders.

Picking Cleveland by 7, even against Miami, seems overexuberant given the way the Browns season has gone. But at least I'm not locking it. Myles Garrett throwing away his season in the waning seconds of an in-your-face victory over the Steelers has to be the biggest bonehead move in the league this year.

I'm locking Tennessee to beat Jacksonville, the first time I've done that all season against the Jaguars. Jacksonville's run defense has become a soggy paper bag.
