All Jameis (Winston) does is win

December 5 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-Jameis Winston doesn’t have the turbo skates that Michael Vick used to have. He just gets the job done. Winston is not the chiseled Statue of Liberty Superman that Cam Newton has become.

Win does Chargers’ hearts good

October 18 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-Maybe the San Diego Chargers should play the Denver Broncos more often. Judging by their 21-13 win at home last week against their AFC West wolfpack rivals, the Chargers looked like more of the role of the pitbull going for the death grip on the throats of the Super […]

Goff is That Guy for the Rams

April 29 Dennis J. Freeman 0

LOS ANGELES-Picking the No. 1 overall draft pick in the NFL Draft is a lot like hitting the lottery, if you’re that lucky. It can also be a waste of time and money, if you are unlucky. The Los Angeles Rams have been down this road before. In 2010, the […]
