As the Patriots wait on Tom Brady’s free agency decision before moving onto a further quarterback search, many names have been thrown around as the heir to Tom Brady, including Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, and utility man Taysom Hill. While Bridgewater and Mariota have had success as starting quarterbacks, albeit limited success, Taysom Hill has not had that same opportunity. The Saints have used Hill in a variety of ways, as a running back, wide receiver, tight end and special teamer, but Hill has reiterated time and time again his desire to play quarterback in the NFL. While I hope he gets that chance, I surely don’t want that chance to be with the New England Patriots.
Why the Red Sox traded Mookie Betts has been subject to some debate. Was it to save money? Was it because Betts didn’t want to re-sign in Boston?

Before you dismiss this headline as an overreaction, it’s important to understand that the declining interest of fans when it comes to the Boston Red Sox is real. While this decline can’t be attributed solely to any one cause, there is one major factor that is helping slowly but surely drive the interest of the fans directly into the ground, and if those who are at the root of this problem continue to ignore it, rather than facing it and making the necessary changes, then we will continue to see ticket sales, TV ratings, and overall interest in the Red Sox continue to decline in the coming years.

After a Rare Loss of Composure, the Celtics Need to Focus on Controlling the Things That They Can Control
One of the most refreshing things about this year's Celtics team has been their ability to not let frustrating moments and mounting deficits rattle them. When opportunities have arisen for guys to point fingers and place blame upon one another, or to simply call it a night and mentally check out of a game that's getting out of hand, they have instead responded -- in most cases at least -- with the resiliency, toughness and composure that last year's team so obviously lacked. Unfortunately, last night in Houston was one of the rare moments in which that wasn't the case.

The most popular of those rumors, as of late, has been Brady signing with Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys.
