Jonathan Papelbon is the best closer in the game today

kenicks

Great closers in the game of baseball: Mariano Rivera, Dennis Eckersley, Rich "Goose" Gossage, Willie Hernandez, and Rollie Fingers. All are past their prime, and all are retired with the exception of Rivera, and at age 38 his years are numbered. But a new face looks to emerge out of the world of closing pitchers: Jonathan Papelbon. In fact, he's already emerged. Just two full seasons into his career, Papelbon has made 118 appearances, 81 of those being save situations, closing out 72 of them...

The 2000 Baltimore Ravens were the greatest defense of all-time

The 2000-2001 Baltimore Ravens were the greatest team defense of all-time. There are several points to back this statement up. 1. This 2000 Ravens were the greatest scoring defense of all time 2. They featured arguably two of the greatest players at their positions (Ray Lewis, Rod Woodson) of all-time. 3. They did not allow an offensive TD in Super Bowl XXXV against a solid Giants offense 4. Ray Lewis, Sam Adams, and Rod Woodson were all named to the pro-bowl They were clearly the best, but...

Eli Manning is Overrated

shlh1514

Hello I've been a Giants fan since as long as I can remember (2000 Super Bowl). I remember how good it felt when we got Eli and today when he won his first playoff game. There has been a lot of talk about how he's overrated, that is just false. Since Eli was a full time starter in 2005, he has -been to the playoffs every year (as of 1/6/08 1-2 rec.) -other teams to do that are the Seahawks, Colts, and Pats -won a division title in 2nd year -started every game since first start -other...

should an all girls football league be started

dpfreak93
Logical-Master

all men are created equal. so why is there not an all girls football league? girls are nearly as tough or tougher than men, and should be allowed to play football. All other sports have girl and boy leagues, even volleyball which some boys enjoy (though i will never understand why). Football is fun, and very playable to girls and boys. if boys don't want girls to play on their team, which they probably don't, then an all girls team needs to be started. I garantee many girls would play. Heck, i w...

The Patriots Will CHOKE!

FiredUpRepublican

After seeing The Patriots narowlly winning games these past few weeks, I firmly believe they are doomed to choke in the AFC Championship Game or the Superbowl. Just because they are undefeated does not guarantee a Superbowl victory, or appearance! It is quite funny how, before the Raiders got screwed over several years ago, no one knew who The Patriots were. Infact, I had never seen a Patriot Fan in my life. Now, everywhere you look there are fake fans out there on the Patriot Bandwaggon who...

steroids should be legal in baseball.

john f kennedy once said "ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country." now the best thing americans can do for their country is to accept and make legal steroids in baseball. i will have 3 main areas to affirm this resolution which are 1. It makes the sport more exiting 2. w/o steroids basball becomes americas pastime and nothing more 3.right to bear arms ( guns) now my first point is that it makes the sport more exiting. this is evident by the barry bo...

There should be a 2 strike rule for steroids in baseball

crazypenguin
defleppard1691

First thank you for joining this debate I will like to state my points just about steroids in general: 1) Multiple kids around the world are getting the wrong message from people such as Barry Bonds by taking steroids to do better in their sports. They not only end up getting caught, suspended and then they lose any respect they had for cheating. Also research shows that "Regarding the ease by which one can obtain steroids, 17.0% of eighth graders, 27.7% of tenth graders, and 40.1% of twel...
