Patriots DC Matt Patricia takes responsibility for defense's failure

perth_map

This Patriots defense has not been great all year long, so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise that they were shredded as heavily as they were. By all accounts, the Lions' new coach indeed operates in his own way. That's exactly what Lions general manager Bob Quinn said he was looking for when he began the search for his next coach earlier this month - Someone who can take a good team and make it great.

perth_map

You have to wonder whether Smith's desire to go to a Super Bowl-ready (or at least playoff-ready) team was a factor in the Chiefs' decision to not send him to Cleveland.

Tottenham player ratings in 1-1 FA Cup draw at Newport

perth_map

Newport, 72 league places below Spurs , made life extremely uncomfortable for their guests from the off.

Amla makes lone stand as South Africa close in on India total

perth_map

Both teams have the chance to take control of the game on day three: Every precious run India makes on such a tough wicket for batsmen magnifies South Africa's already uphill task of batting last.

Rabada‚ who soaked up the pressure by playing sensible cricket and frustrated the Indian bowlers by leaving risky balls and punishing the bad ones‚ was removed agonisingly close to ... Read More »

The 2013 #Nl Mvp has had an interesting last few seasons. Pittsburgh doesn't get anything from playing guys like Freese or Cervelli next year. Overall not bad, but low for McCutchen Standards.
