    The Yips, Explained. (Why We Are All Brett Maher)

    The Yips, Explained. (Why We Are All Brett Maher)

    We are all Brett Maher…and whether you realize it or not, you are too. Every human being is at least a little bit like the Dallas Cowboys’ Kicker and NFL’s current poster boy for choking, flop-sweating, crapping the bed, whatever word you wanna use…even if you’d never admit it. Even if the person we all dream of being is Joe Burrow. So, today, David Epstein, best-selling author of THE SPORTS GENE and RANGE, takes us inside the Yips — and our own brains. Where we learn actual lessons that apply to both the very best athletes in the world, and the people who watch them.

    The QB Battle that Unlocked Patrick Mahomes

    The QB Battle that Unlocked Patrick Mahomes

    Patrick Mahomes is undoubtedly one of the most talented quarterbacks we have ever seen in the NFL…but there was a chance that his meteoric rise almost didn’t happen at all. Back in middle school, Mahomes was locked in a QB battle with a kid named Ryan Cheatham that lasted for years until his junior season. Mahomes and Cheatham grew up playing baseball and football together, and despite how fiercely competitive they were…they actually became best friends. So Ryan Hockensmith tells you everything about the position battle that made Patrick Mahomes.

    Mina Kimes Deciphers NFL’s Conference Championships

    Mina Kimes Deciphers NFL’s Conference Championships

    This time of year, as the field of NFL contenders whittles down, the hot takes start to ramp up…and with it comes the usual tropes. Talk of quarterback legacies and the Cowboys’ never-ending failure abounds. But with Championship Sunday mere days away, we asked Mina Kimes to help us break new ground and get our heads around these two highly anticipated matchups. Can the Bengals’ depleted offensive line support Joe Burrow and overperform for the second week in a row? How much does Patrick Mahomes’ bum ankle hinder Kansas City’s offense? What gives in the strength-on-strength matchup between the Eagles O-line and the Niners D-line? Mina explains what we should really be paying attention to, and what we’ll be talking about after it’s all over.

    Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: Why MLB Spending is on the Rise, and What it Means

    Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: Why MLB Spending is on the Rise, and What it Means

    Just a few years ago in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Major League Baseball painted a picture of a dire financial situation across the league…but less than three years later, the finances – and the contracts dished out this offseason – paints the picture of a very healthy MLB economy: Aaron Judge reached a deal to stay in pinstripes for 9 years, $360 million. Trea Turner went back to the East Coast for an 11-year, $300 million agreement with the Philadelphia Phillies. Rafael Devers became the highest paid player in Red Sox history with his new extension…and even Carlos Correa himself signed over $500 million worth of contracts, before landing with the Twins. But not everyone is happy about the billions of dollars on the move this offseason. Jeff Passan returns to talk about baseball’s evolving economy, and the resentment it’s fueling…not among fans, but among the owners themselves.

    Alex Smith Untangles the NFL Divisional Round

    Alex Smith Untangles the NFL Divisional Round

    The NFL playoffs are cruel. Take Dak Prescott…last week, he had the best game of his life against the Buccaneers. This week, his season ends on an inexplicable trick play that humiliates you in front of tens of millions of people. Or, take the Buffalo Bills…who were licking their chops to face a banged up Bengals offensive line, only to look completely outmatched in front of their home fans. So today, we ask our friend Alex Smith, a quarterback who’s been there before, to tell us what impressed him during the Divisional Round this weekend. And how the four teams left standing managed to make it this far.

    Cornerback Confidential: Domonique Foxworth Defends NFL’s Most Underappreciated Job

    Domonique Foxworth has a theory. Our current ESPN colleague is convinced that the job he used to have––NFL cornerback––is more interesting than it has ever been.  
    So today, ahead of the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs, we summon the heightened and unparalleled confidence of Domonique Foxworth. He brings all his diva cornerback vibes to explain why his old job is the biggest hidden secret-to-success in the NFL. And why, during a weekend full of superstar quarterbacks and the people who obsess over them––we should actually be focusing on his position’s Golden Age.
