Why does Brett Favre believe Aaron Rodgers’ time with the Packers is over?

If there is anyone who is an expert on the subject of controversy with his continuity as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers during the offseason it is Hall of Famer Brett Favre, who justly was Aaron Rodgers' predecessor at the helm of the home team's offense at Lambeau Field.Favre believes Rodgers will play for another teamSo when Favre openly shared his thoughts on "A-Rod's" future with the Packers after a painful 13-10 Divisional Round exit at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, it's a perspective to consider."Where do the Packers go from here? That's a good question," Favre said. "I think we may have seen the last of Aaron in Green Bay. I don't know that for certain, it's just a gut [feeling].

Lakers can’t get past the Philadelphia 76ers without injured LeBron James

Los Angeles Lakers had an important visit on Thursday against the Philadelphia 76ers in what would've been a great battle between LeBron James and Joel Embiid. However, the 'King' was reportedly feeling pain on his knee and he was left out of the squad just hours before the game started. With no Bron, this Lakers team loses a player who has been scoring 25+ points in the last 18 straight games. It was obvious they would feel his absence and maybe even lose the game against Embiid and company. From the very start of the game, it was clear that the Sixers were going to run the show tonight at Wells Fargo Center in Philly. Even though anthony Davis returned to a fraction of his best self with an impressive 31 points and 12 rebounds. Despite Russell Westbrook scoring 20 points as well. Not ha...

Ja’Marr Chase, the Bengals’ big receiver who wasn’t appreciated by everyone

Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase has become one of the rising young stars in the NFL, his speed and natural talent suggesting that the combination he makes with second-year quarterback Joe Burrow will be one of the most fearsome for a long time. The heartwarming story of Ja'Marr ChaseHowever, according to Chase's own words, not everyone trusted him early on in his journey to, the NFL, when he was a standout with the LSU Tigers."I can tell you honestly, one of my best stories ever. Les Miles told me I couldn't play receiver when I was coming out of high school," Chase said. "So that was something I had on my shoulders growing up. Les Miles told me he thought I could play cornerback. I wasn't really at the full position of receiver yet so I just kept working at my craft...

Conmebol Qualifiers: Argentina wins in Chile with Di Maria and Lautaro’s goals

After the Brazil vs Ecuador game ended, it was time for Argentina to face Chile in a gruesome fight for the last two tickets to the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Lionel Messi could've been part of this game but he is just getting out of the COVID-19 restrictions. He is no longer contagious but he still tests positive in the PCR, which means he isn't eligible to play until he tests negative. Coach Lionel Scaloni was also positive and didn't even make the trip to Chile for this match. Chile was in dire need of three points if they wanted to keep hopes for a spot to Qatar, they felt a victory was possible with Argentina not having Messi on the pitch. But they thought wrong. During the first half, Angel Di Maria drew first blood with a spectacular long-range goal that put the Albiceleste ahead in the...

USMNT 1-0 El Salvador: Player ratings as Antonee Robinson delivers vital WCQ win

The United States Men's National Team took another huge step toward World Cup qualification with a 1-0 win over El Salvador on Thursday night.

Timothy Weah and Ferreira deserve huge credit, with the former making a driving run to disrupt the El Salvador def...

How have Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce become the perfect pairing for the Chiefs?

The combination that quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce have in the Kansas City Chiefs offense has long made them the most fearsome pair for opposing defenses around the NFL, however, those talents do not work alone, it is a very well meshed machine.For Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, the productivity of this offensive core is due to the work, but also to the intellectual communion of these three figures of the team that plays at home at Arrowhead Stadium.The 13-second offensive seriesAnd this was more evident than ever during the final offensive series of regular time in which with just 13 seconds left, Mahomes connected first with Tyreek Hill for a 19-yard gain and then with Kelce for a 22-yard gain to set the table for the tying field goal.On that 22-yard pass, Reid ta...

Conmebol Qualifiers: Wilmar Roldan steals the show in Ecuador’s draw vs Brazil

PAVEL IBARRA MEDAActualizado 28/01/2022 - 01:34 With no Neymar to help them, Brazil barely managed to get a draw at Ecuador in the first Conmebol World Cup Qualfier for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. This is the final stretch before the massive tournament takes place in December of this year. Just as it tends to happen in these types of games from South America, the Ecuador vs Brasil match was an all out war. In fact, there were far more fouls than usual that got Emerson and Alexander Dominguez. But the biggest protagonist of the game was referee Wilmar Roldan, who showed Alisson Becker the red card twice and retracted his decision twice due to VAR. This had never occured in professional football before, Alisson only finished the game after over 100 minutes with a yellow card. No joke, the f...
