    Author Danielle McCartan Eric Webb Matt Berkson Nicole Monique Scott Thompson

    What makes a great sports year? Do we define a sports year when the unthinkable becomes reality? When we say goodbye to greatness?

As we turn the page on 2016 in to 2017, the contributors of Back Sports Page look back at the year that was 2016 with their highlights and memories. Today we start with the NFL:

    Big Blue Report: Taming the Lions

    Looking to the Final Home Game of the Season!!

    Author Randy Zellea

    Looking Back Against the Cowboys:

    The fans of the Giants understood why Jerry Reese put as much attention in the defenses during the offseason as he did. The defense forced three turnovers and held the Cowboys to seven points. Giants Head Coach Ben McAdoo was happy with the team’s effort: “What we did well, tremendous effort by the defense all night. We stayed in the moment the entire 60 minutes of the ball game. I really thought we put our foot down in the second half of the game. We tackled fundamentally sound. We held the offense to seven points, minimized explosive gains and forced turnovers. What we need to work on, we need to keep them under 100 yards rushing and keep them out of field goal range at the end of the first half.”

Winning a division title in 2014, playing under offensive juggernaut Chip Kelly, planning a trip to the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and his alma mater, Cincinnati, off to a great start in college basketball. But none of these things can provide Brent with the same satisfaction he receives from his true passion… the “Take Flight Foundation.

 

A Different Take On The Big Game!!!

Written by Todd Stauber on Saturday, 01 February 2014. Posted in Commentaries, Football

Amid the Super Bowl hype that has gripped the city of Seattle over the past two weeks, this Seattle Seahawk fan has become weary of what seems to be a campaign by the NFL to make this Peyton Manning’s Super Bowl. Remember 2005? Seattle v Pittsburg? The last ride for The Bus? I do, and so does everyone else in Seattle. This  feels all too familiar. Roger Goodell and the powers that be in the NFL taking a story line and making it reality. A conspiracy theory?? I think so….
