The Browns... won a game... I... well, I'm shocked. I was a little troubled by Richardson's lack of production in the game (apparently, he got hurt?).

Oh well, 10 games to go, I think I'm almost safe to collect on my bet.

Things you thought would never be said about the modern day NFL:

If the Ravens can't figure out a way to stop the run they don't deserve to make the playoffs.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Or, How in the world can you be a head coach in the NFL and continuously butcher how to win a game at the end? That's 2? 3? times that JG has lost a game because of clock management fail.

I don't know what's more impressive... Manning actually mounting a comeback when trailing for 20+ pts or Rivers going Delhomme

I think the "manning can't come back" is more a team problem than a manning problem.

I have never been the rivers fan that most are, but I think more of the blame needs to be laid at the feet of norv turner. you have a qb that throws for 4k yards a season, 20+ tds a season, avg's 1 int a game (not terrible), and they can't find ways to win.

Grats to the Giants.

Had to chuckle when Holliday popped out to Scutaro to end the series.

Giants Tigers World Series.

Could this series end up breaking the record for lowest scoring World Series ever?

There are some incredibly dominant pitchers and some pitchers with the ability to be dominant going in this series. I would LOVE to see a Pitcher's Duel of a World Series.

I suppose this article works here, though probably won't bring about as much discussion as some other threads.

Thoughts? Do you think "doping" should be made legit?

I have been a proponent of the use of HGH as a recovery drug in sports for a while. I don't know if I would go so far as to allow them to use anything and everything, because some of the drugs can and do, have just awful side effects. Heavy Anabolic Steroid use is tied to the deaths of a lot of people, ranging in causes from multiple forms of cancer (Lyle Alzado) to Depression, and Suicide (Wrestler who roid raged on his family, and then killed himself)

While I know there are purists who say that the records will never be the same again, I say "if you believe that every record from the 1960's on is without question, completely 100% done without drugs, you are insane. The amphetamine craze of baseball, steroids, etc... all matter. Hell, the invention of Gatorade changed things.

It's a tough line to walk, and I would say that in the right scope, with the right regulations involved, I could see an era where certain "PEDS" are legal.

The problem is the trickle-down to college and high school athletics.
