The Patriot-haters continue to be ever disappointed

The Patriot-haters continue to be ever disappointed

It was only a few short weeks ago that the Patriots were dominated on Monday night by the Chiefs, and when I went on social media after the game there were more than a few people ready to crow. They were more than willing to bury the Patriots and declare the Brady/Belichick era of excellence was [...]

A great big GOP wave sweeps many Dems out to sea

A great big GOP wave sweeps many Dems out to sea

Most analysts thought the GOP was likely to take the chamber, but it seemed it might be only at a 52-48 or 51-49 margin. Instead the Republicans have already wrapped [...]

Catching up with the heroes from 1981′s ‘Stripes’

Still Sleepwalking in Seattle

Still Sleepwalking in Seattle

The Seattle Seahawks are the defending Super Bowl champions, but something is amiss with the team that many expected to have a good shot at repeating this season. The Seahawks have stumbled out of the gate, and as a result they are a 3-3 team right now. They made a rare midseason trade of a high-priced [...]

Reader submission: Please grow a pair, Jay Gruden

Reader submission: Please grow a pair, Jay Gruden

Dear Jay Gruden: I’ve been a Redskins fan for 33 years. That’s 33 years more than you have been. I actually care about this team and feel we should use the weapons we’ve spent millions on acquiring. That being said, I believe you may want to take a trip to the eye doctor. You may [...]
