More mediation on the way … If you’re a fan of football – which we assume, given that you’re reading this sentence – it seems that you should like Judge Susan Nelson. Although she hasn’t ruled on lifting the lockout yet, signs last Wednesday appeared to be pointing in that direction.

    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out?

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
