You have to respect Rondo for his heart

By Chad Garner
Fan Fanatic Sports Staff
The Boston Celtics might not be able to overcome the much more athletic Miami Heat in the NBA playoffs, but there's no questioning the heart and desire of Rajon Rondo.
The ultra-quick point guard showed all basketball fans why he's one of the premier point guards in the league.
We all know he's got blazing speed, the ability penetrate the lane and dish or score, and we also know his jump shot is ugly and inconsistent at best.
But we all found out in Game 3 vs. the Heat how much he cares about winning and not letting his team and the fans down.
Rondo got tangled up with Dwayne Wade in Game 3 and came down on his arm and suffered a dislocated elbow.
It looked gross on every replay in America, and no one thought he was going to come back into the game.
But Rondo returned minutes later, virtually playing with one arm and gave the Celtics and their fans a gigantic lift.
Rondo played great and inspired basketball -- yes, with one good arm.
So if anyone wants to question how tough and how much heart Rondo has, you better re-think blasting this kid any other time through his career.
He's what is right about all sports. Rondo showed his true colors on the court and earned a boatload more respect for playing through the pain and putting his team first.
Respect is earned. Rondo's got my full respect now!

2011 NFL Draft: Chad vs Jim Mock Draft

By Jim Ingram
Fan Fanatic Sports Staff
Well, it's that fun time of the year again. Yes, I'm talking about the 2011 NFL Draft. Lockout, or no lockout, this should be a fun, maybe even crazy couple of days for the draft. So, please check out below the final mock drafts from both Chad and myself. Unlike our picks for the NFL season, I firmly believe that I will lose this one. Either way, feel free to review and criticize our picks.

What's not to like about Tom Brady's passion for the game?

By Chad Garner
Fan Fanatic Sports Staff
This quick video piece from Yahoo! Sports on New England quarterback Tom Brady says it all. Take a look and you'll see why I consider him the best in the game.
Brady still has that burning desire to be the best. And he still plays with a chip on his shoulder for getting drafted in the 6th round.
After watching this, tell me he's just another pro athlete that's in it for the paycheck.

Red Sox fans need to calm down

By Chad Garner
Fan Fanatic Sports Staff
Relax.
That's the message I have for any Major League Baseball fan that has hit the panic button already.
This goes out, especially, to all these Red Sox fans -- and I use the phrase "fans" loosely -- who are also saying that this ballclub stinks.
Yes, they haven't played well during their 0-3 start against Texas this year, but as we all know, this is a very long season.
It's a marathon of 162 games, not a sprint. Teams will hit ups and down all season long. The Sox are on a mini-skid right now, but there's no need to panic.
I'm not saying you shouldn't be upset that your beloved Red Sox have started the season losing three straight, but just take a chill pill for a second and realize that this isn't the end of the world.
This team has talent throughout the lineup. Talent typically prevails in any sport.
If you want to start pointing fingers at certain players who haven't done well yet, then here goes -- Bard, Buchholz, Lester, Lackey and Crawford.
Besides Lackey, any team in the majors would be glad to trade for anyone on that list above. So if you want to run them out of town, that's fine, too, considering they all stink anyway.
Being a fan is a wonderful thing. But being a "fan" that has absolutely no clue about the sport just ticks me off to no end.
And sorry to say, if you think this Red Sox team "stinks" then you don't know jack about baseball.

Chad vs Jim: Super Bowl Picks

By Jim Ingram
Fan Fanatic Sports Staff
Well, the final game of the season is here, and if you're like me you are seriously hoping this isn't the last NFL game we see for a long time. Entering the Super Bowl I have a playoff record of 6-4 and Chad is 5-5. In my opinion, A winning pick for the Super Bowl is more important that anything else, so if Chad picks the winner, than he wins for the Playoffs. Now, onto the Picks

Jim's Pick;
Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-24

Chad's Pick:
Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Green Bay Packers 24-20

I think this is going to be a great game either way, so enjoy!

Get ready to apologize to Cutler, if he did tear his MCL

By Chad Garner
Fan Fanatic Sports Staff
Mind you, I'm not a Jay Cutler fan.
I think he's an average QB at best, and he makes way too many poor decisions for my liking.
But I'm really sick of everyone bashing him, especially after yesterday's loss in the NFC Championship game to the Green Bay Packers.
Yes, I was amazed when Cutler was yanked out of the game with an apparent knee injury.
Of course, just like everyone, I was thinking that he was soft for not being under center, but I also thought that if he was really hurt, I could completely understand that he wasn't in the game.
You know, if you simply can't help your team on the field -- due to poor play or injury -- I don't think you should be on the field.
That's the bottom line.
But Cutler got murdered in the media yesterday. From the talking heads on television to NFL players on Twitter, everyone had something really negative to say about Cutler.
But if all the reports are true now -- that Cutler has an MCL tear -- then people better apologize for accusing Cutler of wimping out and not battling to the end with his ballclub.
And I don't care what kind of tear he's got, if he's got any kind of MCL ligament tear, I'm backing him 100 percent.
This guy has been abused more in the media -- albeit some has been brought on himself -- than most, but it's only right to defend him if he's in the right.
Most will agree that Cutler will never be an elite QB, but no one's heart and desire to play the game should ever be questioned without merit.
If, indeed, he did tear something, no wonder why the Chicago coaching staff wouldn't let him back into the game.
Shame on everyone who questioned his heart. Can't wait to hear and read all the apologizes, if he did suffer an MCL tear. Even then, he'll still get tooled on, and that's not right at all.

Chad vs Jim: NFL Championship Round Playoff Picks

By Jim Ingram
Fan Fanatic Sports Staff
Well, last week was a disastrous week in the NFL playoffs for me, and for many reasons. Of course the main reason is the Patriots loss to the Jets, but it also hurt to 1-3 on the weekend with my picks. Chad fared better with a 2-2 record left. I now have a 1 game lead as I am 4-4 and Chad is 3-5. This week will not help as we are picking the same teams. See below and make sure you check for our Super Bowl picks in two weeks.
