The Case Against T-MAC, C-WEBB, and VINCE

There's been a lot of talk around the basketball world about whether or not Chris Webber, Vince Carter, and Tracy McGrady should be inducted to the NBA Hall of Fame this year or ever. What do you think? I say no to all of them, and I have my opinion and statistics to prove it.

If you're a basketball fan from the 90's and early 2000's, you're probably screaming your head out at the computer screen. I know, I know, they were awesome to watch. Honestly, who hasn't seen Tracy McGrady go all Reggie Miller and score 13 points in 30 seconds.

Who is the Best Quarterback in the NFL?

This post was written before week three of the 2013 NFL season

Nowadays, there has been a ton of talk about what your team's QB should look like--Russell Wilson or Tom Brady? Andrew Luck or Peyton Manning? The NFL, which has progressively become a passing-dominated league, had 11 Quarterbacks throw for over 4,000 yards in 2012, an unthinkable statistic. How do you measure a QB's value to a team, because now some passers get it done with their legs too. Statistically, you could make the argument that Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Robert Griffin III was the best Quarterback in the NFL last year. Judging by QBR, a pretty good football saber metric, Peyton Manning was the best with Tom Brady and Matt Ryan at 2nd and 3rd. MATT RYAN?????
