Mayo on the Side: Michael Mayo | Sun Sentinel BlogsDon't know how excited you are about today's Republican presidential primary in Florida, but we journalists are supposed to treat it like the Super Bowl (or at least the NFC Championship game -- if football conferences were political paries, I'd......
Joe Flacco and the Ravens have to win one-on-one matchups in the AFC championship game at Gillette Stadium when the Patriots send pressure. Look for Cover-1 blitz schemes from Bill Belichick's defense in the red zone that test the ability of Ravens...
If Shea McClellin was a conservative pick in the NFL draft, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was a slightly risky one and safety Brandon Hardin was a daring one. It makes sense to go further out on the ledge in the second round than the first, and further...
INDIANAPOLIS — If the Bears are intending on drafting a receiver, they had to walk away from the combine workouts Sunday whistling and winking. A number of receivers, most notably Notre Dame's Michael Floyd, distinguished themselves at Lucas Oil...
Shea McClellin wasn't born wearing shoulder pads, but he plays like it. That's why the Bears general manager Phil Emery made him his first draft pick ahead of Whitney Mercilus, Nick Perry, Chandler Jones, Courtney Upshaw or any other defensive end who...

Last week in parenthesis 1. Broncos (1): They are 13-3 at home in the playoffs in their history, and have won 11 straight. Those are two strong trends. 2. Packers (2): They got revenge on the Vikings in the wild-card round Saturday; now they will...
1. Giants (3 last week): Is there a better quarterback in the NFL in the final two minutes than Eli Manning? 2. Bears (6): They have the best defense in the NFL by a wide margin, and the offense isn't bad either. 3. Falcons (1): The offense is...
