• One of the Kings biggest weaknesses entering the season was defense, so whats the real reason they gave up so quickly on forward Luc Mbah a Moute, arguably their best defensive player?
• When the Kings acquired forward Derrick Williams from the Minnesota Timberwolves for Mbah a Moute this week, was your first reaction, Who?
• With Bulls guard Derrick Rose out for the season (again), does Chicago have any hope of contending for an NBA title?
• The 49ers are one of the best rushing teams in the league, so why isnt Frank Gore near the top of every list of top running backs in the NFL?
• If Seattle beats New Orleans on Monday, could the Seahawks possibly be any more confident coming into the Dec. 8 game against the 49ers at Candlestick Park?
• After undrafted rookie quarterback Matt McGloin had another solid performance Thursday at least in the first half before the Cowboys came back to win have we seen the last of Terrelle Pryor?
• Even if Steelers coach Mike Tomlin didnt intentionally impede the Ravens Jacoby Jones on his kickoff return Thursday, shouldnt the NFL fine Tomlin for being on the field during a play?
• We admire Warren Smiths gumption for saying he can bring MLS to Sacramento for the 2016 season and look forward to eventually having a team here but isnt it a reach to land a team and get a 20,000-seat stadium built in just 28 months?
• By all accounts, MLS is very successful, with an average attendance of 18,500 per game and cities fighting to pay up to $100 million for a franchise, so why are ratings for its games on ESPN lower than the WNBAs?
• If Alabama beats Auburn today, wins the Southeastern Conference title game next week and advances to the BCS championship for the third consecutive year, shouldnt quarterback AJ McCarron be the start of any Heisman Trophy conversation?
