2017 AFC West Preview

08 September 2017

  Oakland Raiders (12-4)   The Raiders will look to take the next step and be serious title contenders this season, and hopefully, a late season injury to Derek Carr will not derail that.  Carr has the weapons he needs in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree at receiver and those two should put up big […]

2017 NFC South Preview

07 September 2017

  Carolina Panthers (11-5)   I expect a bounce back season from both Cam Newton and the Panthers this season.  Carolina is switching to a more short passing orchestrated offense to alleviate the hits Newton has suffered and also reduce his running responsibilities.  The draft pick of running back Christian McCaffrey will help in both […]

2017 AFC South Preview

06 September 2017

  Tennessee Titans (10-6)   I have liked the way Tennessee has progressed and, while Houston has had the advantage on this division in recent years, I think the Titans break through this year.  A lot depends on how Marcus Mariota responds from last year’s injury, but it appears he is all set to go.  […]

2017 NFC North Preview

05 September 2017

  Green Bay Packers (10-6) Expect another playoff run from the Packers again this season with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback.  Rodgers makes all the plays and carries this team with spectacular and sometimes unbelievable play.  Randall Cobb is a quality receiver and look for Geronimo Allison to elevate his game at that position as well.  […]

2017 AFC North Preview

01 September 2017

  Pittsburgh Steelers (10-6)   Despite Ben Roethlisberger and his talks of retirement, he will be under center for the Steelers this year and take this team to a division title in a pretty weak division.  Le’Veon Bell should be on the field all season long (meaning no suspensions coming into the year) and his […]

2017 NFC East Preview

31 August 2017

  Dallas Cowboys (9-7)   The story of the Cowboys offseason is the recent suspension of star running back Ezekiel Elliott.  That suspension is another topic for another day.  Assuming the suspension is upheld (I expect a reduction from six games to four) the Cowboys win total will suffer somewhat.  There is enough offensive talent […]

2017 AFC East Preview

28 August 2017

  New England Patriots (14-2)   The defending Super Bowl Champions come into the 2017 season as clear-cut favorites for a repeat.  Tom Brady did turn 40 early in training camp but don’t expect any slowing down from likely the greatest quarterback ever.  Even with the recent season ending injury to Julian Edelman (ACL) there […]

Cavalier Attitude

19 April 2017

  The belief that the Cleveland Cavaliers can still walk through the Eastern Conference is Ridiculous The Cleveland Cavaliers enter the playoffs as the defending NBA Champions looking to repeat en route to reaching The Finals for a third straight season.  LeBron James is gunning to make it to The Finals for an incredible seventh […]

Todd Bowles: Victim of his own Success

09 January 2017

  Indications are that Jets Head Coach Todd Bowles will return for a third season despite a 5-11 year   Much to the chagrin of the desperate Jet fan base, it appears Todd Bowles will be back for a third season.  Had Todd Bowles not gone 10-6 his first season, however, would the fans still […]

2016 NFC North Preview

07 September 2016

  Green Bay Packers (11-5)   The Packers schedule is very favorable throughout the season, which will make it easy for them to regain the division title.  Aaron Rodgers is an elite quarterback, and the return of Jordy Nelson to go along with Randall Cobb will have this passing game hitting on all cylinders.  Eddy […]

The Summer of 1945

  Summer is, for many, a period of relaxation and reminiscence on the times and events that have impacted our lives.  A time that had a profound impact on my life was the summer of 1945.  On January 18, 1945, I had been inducted into the U.S. Army at Indiantown Gap in Pennsylvania.   My […]

Jobs in big cities often have attractive salaries and room for advancement.  What they often don’t have, however, is affordable housing.  Some people deal with the housing costs or live in houses with roommates.  Others choose to commute varying distances.  The U.S. Census reports that the average commute for workers is 25.5 minutes.  However, 8.1 […]
