Re: NFL Week 11

Does Hill have comprising photos of Payton or something? Hill looked real good yesterday - he is a duel threat at QB. Winston does have the running ability of Hill and is a turnover machine. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if New Orleans uses both QB's in upcoming games depending on situat...

Re: Dictator Pritzker Holding Illinois Hostage!

Re: Packers Great Paul Hornung Passes

The most overrated Heisman trophy winner ever in my opinion. He is also one of the more overrated pro football Hall of Famers who got in because of being associated with the great Green Bay Packers. Hornung was a true golden boy who had a charmed life needless to say!

Re: La Russa back to the South Side?

Sad thing is that even the Sox wanted to get rid of La Russa or they lose him to suspension from MLB, the two best managers available have already been taken. Also, there are a few free agents that have spoken out and said they will not play for La Russa. Honestly, this was such a fun team to watch ...

Re: IHSA moves Winter Sports Decision to October 28

With this current surge, I would think most schools would say no to winter sports, especially since it is my understanding that insurance companies would not insure the events (correct me if I am wrong).

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

Why does it seem like every week the Bears fall behind by 14-17 points in third and early fourth quarters and then scratch and claw way back only to lose? Week after week...why are the third quarters so bad and then the Bears seem to get going in fourth quarter when it's too late?

La Russa hired today as White Sox manager. This ***! Many White Sox fans are not happy at all.

Even though I think there's virtually no chance that Nagy would do so willingly, he may need to give up play calling duties and have Bill Lazor call plays for the next couple weeks. I agree. Let Nagy sit back and let others run the offense and maybe just observe a few weeks. He might actually manag...
