Ken Stabler in 1979

Silverman: Stabler Wasn’t The Best, But He Might Have Been The Most Clutch

Stabler may not have been better than Montana, Unitas or Manning, but would any of them have beaten him in the final moments of the biggest game? Very doubtful.


Kris Bryant

Silverman: Astros, Cubs, A-Rod Lead MLB First-Half Surprises

Unlike the Astros, the Cubs are not in first place. But they have a legitimate chance at winning a wild-card spot.


Martin St. Louis

Silverman: No Player Showed More Determination Than Martin St. Louis

From a championship perspective, the St. Louis acquisition was a failure. However, he brought energy, commitment and guts to the ice on an every-night basis.


Tom Coughlin

Silverman: Giants’ Tom Coughlin Is The Fourth-Best Coach In The NFL Today

While Coughlin may put away his whistle after this season or next, he is still among the best in the game right now.

Silverman: Rookies Cooper, Gordon, Beasley Will Be Worth Watching In Training Camp

We haven’t said this in a long time, but the Oakland Raiders did not fool themselves when they drafted Amari Cooper with their first-round draft choice.


Peyton Manning

Silverman: It’s Obvious That Broncos Would Love To Move Peyton Manning

Would the Denver Broncos like to trade Peyton Manning to the Houston Texans, or anyone else? You bet they would.


Tiger Woods

Silverman: It Might Be Time To Face Reality — Tiger May Never Be Tiger Again

At a certain point, all of the stragglers are going to let it go — the hangers-on who still believe that Tiger Woods has a chance to regain at least some of his past glory and start playing excellent golf once again.

Silverman: Washed Up, Huh? Richards Plays Key Role In Blackhawks’ Run To Glory

Brad Richards left New York in the most ignominious of fashions. The Rangers had no use for him and issued a compliance buyout of his contract.


Geno Atkins

Silverman: With NFL Season Around The Corner, Keep An Eye On These Stories

While training camp won’t decide anything, it will set the stage for the drama that unfolds during the year. Here are a few of the most worthy stories to follow.


Peyton Manning and Tom Brady

Silverman: Manning, Brady Are No Longer Elite NFL Quarterbacks

As long as Brady and Manning have been healthy, they have been elite quarterbacks in the league. That era is now over.

Silverman: American Pharoah Will Break The Triple Crown Drought

Is he strong enough to beat solid horses like Frosted and Materiality, who are rested and ready to roll? I say yes — we’ll see history Saturday at Belmont Park.


Adrian Peterson

Silverman: Peterson Returns To Vikings — As If There Was Any Doubt…

The key reason Peterson reported to the Vikings’ OTAs this week is the figure on the check he will see the day after the Vikings play their season opener.

Silverman: Top Lineman’s Injury Should Serve As Warning To Peyton Manning To Retire

The news of Ryan Clady’s torn ACL is bad news for the Denver Broncos and even worse news for Peyton Manning.

Silverman: With ‘D’ On Cruise Control, Rangers Poised For Another Cup Final

Momentum may look like it favors the Rangers after a huge Game 6 victory in Tampa, but it is a fickle ally. The game plan is what favors New York in Friday’s series-deciding matchup.


Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, Tom Brady

Silverman: The Patriots’ Dynasty Has Started To Crumble

The three-headed partnership of Bob Kraft, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady may go on for one more year, but that’s about all that is left for this team.
