Aaron Hernandez: No Longer a ‘Patriot’

by Kenny Ducey

This is commentary from Kenny Ducey, giving you a closer look into the Aaron Hernandez Scandal.

The New England Patriots embody everything good about football. Okay, maybe that’s not 100% true (Belichick is a little mean, sometimes), but they’re the closest to a perfect-run franchise as there is in football today. They’ve got a great no-nonsense policy enforced by the most no-nonsense coach of them all. This week, though, we’ve learned that even the Patriots can make mistakes.

Bob Costas: The Last Word

by Alex Smith

Bob Costas is one of the most awarded sports broadcasters we have ever seen. A winner of an incredible 25 Emmy Awards, Costas has also covered multiple World Series, NBA Championships, Super Bowls, and Olympic Games. While all of those accolades are certainly noteworthy, Costas recently took home what he calls one of the great honors of his career, WFUV’s Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award.

In addition, he paid homage to the award's namesake, in saying that receiving the award was truly one of the great moments of his life.

Pugh! Giants Take a Safe Pick and Deep Breath in the First Round

As the saying goes, Bigger is better. That seemed to be a theme at the 2013 NFL Draft Thursday night as nine of the thirty-two picks were offensive linemen, one of whom is on his way to East Rutherford to play for Big Blue. The Giants selected Syracuse left tackle Justin Pugh with the 19th overall pick in the draft, which was a surprise to many (cough cough, myself) who thought the Giants would take their chances on one of the athletic pass rushers who were available at number 19 (cough cough , again, myself) or Xavier Rhodes, the talented Florida State cornerback. But as General Manager Jerry Reese alluded to in his presser, for as long as the Giants have been around, and it has been awhile, they have always picked the best player available. Justin Pugh fits the bill.

The New York Jets have selected Dee Milliner and Sheldon Richardson as the 9th and 13th picks in the NFL Draft respectively. The selections are defensive heavy to say the least. Dee Milliner is a cornerback who will be expected to fill the spot that has been left with the loss of Darrelle Revis. But General Manager John Idzick said the selection of Milliner was not made just to fill shoes.
