About

Having spent the better part of my life residing in Europe, I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur of fine foods, fast cars, beautiful women, and attractive football… unfortunately I cannot afford most of those things so let’s talk sports (which is completely free).

In spite of my nomadic lifestyle which has seen me live in four different countries over the last decade, I do have my allegiances but I ask that everyone leave their “fan ego” at the door and make way for unbiased discussion. While I believe it is safe to say that not all opinions are created equal, I would like to hear them all regardless so feel free to lambaste and/or praise me as you so choose haha...

    Yeah I noticed when I went on your article's history, although your piece showed up fine on my screen so maybe it was fine. That interview was an article that I edited, but I have no idea how it managed to get copied into yours! Thanks for your co-operation.

    Which one? I don't think I have edited any of your articles have I? I tried to get on your Tampa Bay one but it wouldn't open for me. Apologies for any inconvenience.

    Got to your article second, but enjoyed it thoroughly nonetheless. You did a great job combining information with some well-placed wit. I have a feeling that one's going to take off. Did you see Dan Wetzel's column on Brady last night for Yahoo! Sports? Fantastic stuff as well.

    Also, congrats on your graduation, man!

    Hey Justin, sorry I didn't get around to the Tevez article. Was in lab all day yesterday and it slipped my mind when I got home. Feel free to send the next one my way, though!

    Just read it good article Justin. You might want to take a look at this article on Frank Gore. It really opened my eyes in regard to how good a running back he really is.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcwest/post/_/id/50364/50364#comments

    Its just amazing that Gore is a top 5 back in yards when looking at what he has to face. Despite defenses stacking the box at an eye popping 28.6 percent Gore has an ability to thrive inspite of defenses doing everything they can to prevent him from getting yardage. Compare Gore to the other top backs and look at the percentage of how many 8+ man fronts they face in comparison to him. AP 27.2, MJD 20.7, Ray Rice 19.8, Arian Foster 17.3 Darren Mcfadden 13.0, LeSean McCoy 9.5, Matt Forte 2.1, Fred Jackson 1.9. Other than AP its not even close. Its plausible Gore would have 850+ yards at this point in the season if his percentage of facing 8+ man fronts were at Fred Jackson's level of 1.9% (of course the same could be said of AP).

    Of course this is nothing new if you've watched Gore over the course of his entire career.. Teams have been stacking the box against Frank Gore for years (probably even more so in years prior since Gore was the entire offense back then). Gore effects defensive formations more than any running back in the league! Other than AP no one even comes close. Gore is a beast!
