Top 10 Sports Questions and Thoughts of the Week

For the week of December 16th, 2013


10) The Texas Rangers drafting of Russell Wilson doesn’t bother me at all. If you’re going to pull a stunt like that, why not use it to help inspire your team?

9) Nick Saban said he never considered going to Texas. Anyone believe that?

8) Looks like the Texas Rangers last outfield spot could come down to the signing of Nelson Cruz or Shin-Soo Choo. My money is on Choo. 

7) Andre Drummond honored the 26 people who were killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting last December by writing their names on his sneakers. He later donated his game worn gear to the school. Andre Drummond just became one of my favorite players.

6) Kudos to MLB for banning home plate collisions. Never understood why it's okay for the runner to basically plow over the catcher. Very few of the runners in this situation were actively "trying" to score. This is the equivalent of pitchers intentionally hitting batters. There is no place for either in baseball. 

5) Jamaal Charles won a lot of fantasy football playoff games this week for a lot of owners. Yours truly included. Sorry Ozman!

4) Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin's blindsided block caused punter Kevin Huber to suffer a season ending broken jaw. If you are going to start taking head injuries seriously, you need to start taking the penalties to prevent them even more seriously. Garvin should not play another game this season.

3) Apparently, the only person who didn’t want the Alamo Bowl to be Mack Brown’s final game as the head coach of the Texas Longhorns was Mack Brown. Sorry Mack, but it was time. If there was a coaching Mount Rushmore for Texas’ sports, you would be on it.

2) Congratulations to Peyton Manning on being named SI's Sportsman of the Year. Has there been a more positive role model to represent his sport or sports in general than Peyton?

1) So many things I would like to say about the Dallas Cowboys right now, but it would be impossible to summarize it all in a single thought or post. Instead, I will leave you with this…
