Silverman: Packers’ Rodgers Rocketing To Top Of The All-Time QB List

He is not better than Joe Montana or Johnny Unitas, and he hasn’t had the longevity to his career that allows him to go by Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or even Brett Favre. But soon Aaron Rodgers will probably be ahead of them all.

Silverman: Dark Times When White Sox, Marlins Trump Yankees In Free Agency

When you are promoting Andrew Miller and making a run at Chase Headley, you might as well tell your fans you’re going to try really hard to finish in third place next season.

Silverman: Kelly May Look Like NFL Coaching Royalty, But He Has Lots To Prove

It’s still about winning in the NFL, and while the Philadelphia Eagles have made great strides under Chip Kelly, they still have not beaten any opponent of significance.

Silverman: Beliveau’s Dignity, Humility Defined Him As Much As His Success

There may have been a few that were bigger in the sport than Jean Beliveau, but there has never been a classier athlete in any sport.

Silverman: Don’t Even Think About RGIII In Green And White

If the Jets make a bid for the deposed Washington Redskins quarterback, that would be yet another mistake for Woody Johnson and John Idzik, or whoever turns out to be his successor.

Silverman: No Longer Upstarts, Islanders Ready To Kick In The Door

The Islanders sent a loud-and-clear message to one of the NHL’s top glamour teams, the Pittsburgh Penguins: “We can play any game you want, and we can beat you. Keep trying, but we are not going away.”

Silverman: Pac-Man Likely To Shatter Algieri’s Chance Of A Lifetime In Title Fight

If he lasts more than six rounds in this scheduled 12-rounder, he has every right to feel good about himself. But it would take a near-miracle for Algieri to get the upset.

Thursday Night Fantasy Starters: Jamaal Charles, Chiefs Defense And Andre Holmes

Head coach Andy Reid won’t let his team let up against the Raiders and blow an opportunity for a victory, and quarterback Alex Smith is too smart to take any opponent lightly.

Silverman: Reid’s Chiefs May Just Be The NFL’s Biggest And Best Secret

There’s a team that’s being virtually ignored in the AFC, and tit may be able to keep the Patriots from getting back to the top of the football world.

Silverman: Silver’s Gambling Stance Is Another Way For Pro Sports To Get Your Money

In this dangerous world, sports fans are responsible for their own sobriety, no matter how many temptations are put in front of them. And there are more temptations every single day.

Silverman: For Consistency’s Sake, Rangers Must Build On Blowout Of Penguins

The Rangers showed Tuesday night that they can look at themselves in the mirror, feel absolutely disgusted and then come back with a monumental effort that allows them to handle the best team in the league with ease.

Silverman: Giants Have Issues, But At Least They’re Not The Bears

Both teams are suffering through hard times right now, but at least the Giants are playing the game with effort and a desire to win. The Bears play as if pride doesn’t exist.
