Silverman: NFC Young Gun Will Eclipse An AFC QB Legend Come Feb. 2

Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are clearly football royalty. On the other side, you see two sleek athletes who represent the NFL’s future. Colin Kaepernick has already been to one Super Bowl, while Russell Wilson is trying to get to his first.

Silverman: Pats Will Rely On Running Game, But Broncos Have Physical Edge

Brady and Belichick will join the battle, but they don’t have enough weapons to overcome this problem. The AFC Championship looks like the end of the line for New England.

Silverman: Rangers Must Use Victory Over Blackhawks As Jumping-Off Point

One win against Chicago is nice, but it’s not enough. They must take advantage of this four-game homestand if they are going to rescue their season.

Silverman: Olympic Hockey May Be Superb, But It Simply Makes No Sense

The fact that the Olympic hockey tournament takes place in the middle of an NHL season basically defies explanation. Too many things can happen, and none of them are good.

Silverman: Jets Doomed To More Mediocrity With Ryan And Good-Guy Idzik

Now we know why the Jets hired John Idzik as GM a year ago. He’s a get-along guy. He wants to get along with owner Woody Johnson, and he wants to have a comfortable working relationship with Rex Ryan.

Silverman: Ryan Has Plenty Of Company On The Black Monday Firing Line

Rex Ryan is almost certainly in his final hours as the head coach of the New York Jets, but he is hardly alone. There are at least five NFL coaches who are on the firing line at the end of Week 17.

Silverman: Coughlin Can Still Coach, But He Needs An Upgrade In Personnel

The Giants need an upgrade in personnel, not on the coaching staff. General manager Jerry Reese needs to spend less time worrying about the salary cap and more time finding talent.

Silverman: Giants Have Chance To Put Lions Out Of Their Misery

The Lions have taken more undisciplined penalties than any other team in football throughout Schwartz’s tenure. Whether it’s a motion or offside penalty before the snap or an unnecessary roughness or a late hit call after the play, Schwartz’s team never seems to learn.

Silverman: Out-Of-Touch Snow Responsible For Islanders’ Collapse

The New York Rangers have been miserable, but at least they have hope of turning it around and saving their season. The New York Islanders are a different story.

Silverman: Panthers Will Make Life Miserable For The Jets And Geno

The Panthers’ second-ranked defense is just too tough and they are going to make life miserable for Geno Smith.

Silverman: Seahawks’ Trip To MetLife Is Nothing More Than An Appetizer

Nobody can come close to beating the Seahawks at home and they are going to clinch homefield advantage throughout the playoffs in the next week or two. They are one dominant team.

Silverman: Yankees Have Much Work To Do Following Cano Defection

The Yankees are going to try to spin the loss of Robinson Cano to the Seattle Mariners in the best way possible. But there’s no way to get around it. They have suffered a tremendous body blow.

Silverman: Ellsbury In The Bronx Will Make Boston Fans’ Blood Boil

Jacoby Ellsbury came through the Red Sox system and was beloved by Sox fans. Not anymore. He will be booed as loudly as Wade Boggs and Roger Clemens were when they came back to Fenway.

Silverman: Rangers Can’t Afford A Lost Weekend With Canucks Coming To Town

The Rangers didn’t need a win in in this game, but they had to match the Bruins hit for hit and show they could skate and play with Boston.

Silverman: Jets Never Really Had A Shot To Win In 2013, And Rex Knew It

Let’s get something straight: The Jets were never going all in this season. When they hired John Idzik as their GM following the disastrous 2012 season, he was not under any pressure to turn the Jets into a winner in 2013.
