Tiger Woods is in the middle of a career crisis - hurt, rebuilding his swing, and playing so badly that he doesn't feel he even belongs on the PGA Tour right now. That realization, however, might be the only thing that lets him ever win again. #TigerWoods   #Golf   #PGATour
Tiger Woods has been hurt and playing badly, but his admission that he can't just force his way through it - as he might have before - may be the best chance he has to ever win again on Tour.

no one can perform at the pga level if they're not healthy. so many haters were desperately waiting for Tiger to fall. He didn't let them down by his sexual bliss. everyone makes mistakes. he has more than paid for those he made. it's now time to stop trying to please everyone of most who have no bearing on his life. and just PLAY.

Tom Brady may well go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, but don't point to Super Bowl XLIX to make that argument. #SBXLIX   #SuperBowl   #NFL   #NewEnglandPatriots   #TomBrady  
Tom Brady has entered the record books with his fourth championship at Super Bowl XLIX, but in the end, this game shouldn't change what his lasting legacy will be.

Jimmy Walker set aside any memory of his loss at last week's Tournament of Champions, and powered his way to a dominant win at the Sony Open. Could becoming the "King of the Hawaii Swing" lead Walker to even bigger things in 2015? #PGATour   #Golf   #FedExCup   #SonyOpenHawaii  
Jimmy Walker set aside any memory of his playoff loss last week, on his way to a nine-stroke win at the Sony Open. Could this dominant Hawaii swing lead Walker to even bigger things in 2015?

Adam Scott believes that having amateurs play in the 2016 Olympic Games will help grow the game of golf. In 2016 at least, people must see the best of the best on the course, and that means letting pros play. Beyond that, however, there's plenty of room for changes. #Olympics   #Golf   #PGATour   #AdamScott   #Rio2016  
Adam Scott believes that amateurs in the Olympics will help grow golf, but leaving the best of the best at home would just be wrong.

Terrance West has a great Fantasy matchup in Week 12, but the Browns' committee backfield with Isaiah Crowell makes him a gamble to keep in your lineup. +RantSports  #FantasyFootball   #NFL   #ClevelandBrowns
Terrance West has a great Fantasy matchup in Week 12, but the Cleveland Browns' committee approach with fellow rookie Isaiah Crowell makes West a gamble in your lineup.

Ted Bishop may be near the end of his two-year term as the President of the PGA of America, but that doesn't make starting a Twitter battle with Ian Poulter a good look. #PGATour   #IanPoulter   #Golf  
Ian Poulter has never been known to have much of a filter, but PGA President Ted Bishop was out of line in calling him out on social media.

Between Tiger's back problems and his inability to adapt to the new swing with Chris Como, could his hopes of a 2015 comeback be in jeopardy already? #FarmersInsOpen   #PGATour   #TigerWoods   #Golf  
Tiger Woods was battling his swing all day at the Farmers Insurance Open, but a sore back has forced him to withdraw once again as his disappointing comeback continues.

J.J. Watt has become the most feared defensive player in the NFL since Lawrence Taylor, but that won't be enough for him to break the streak of offensive players winning the NFL MVP award. #JJWatt   #NFL   #NFLMVP   #NFLHonors   #HoustonTexans  
J.J. Watt is one of the most feared players in the NFL today, but playing on the wrong side of the ball will keep him from winning the NFL MVP award for 2015.

It's Championship Week in Fantasy Football, and it's time to make the tough lineup decisions. With that in mind, forget about these big names if you can, and realize that there are some stars who just won't help you win the title. #FantasyFootball   #NFL   #Fantasy
These ten stars have huge talent. However, with your fantasy championship on the line, they're too risky to trust in Week 16.

The Chicago #Cubs  just made their biggest free agent signing in team history, and starter Jon Lester is ready to step in and - hopefully - end the 107-year title drought for the North Siders. With $155 million on the table, it's now or never for the Cubs. #MLB   #WinterMeetings   #JonLester  
Theo Epstein and the Chicago Cubs got their man, signing pitcher Jon Lester to a huge deal. Will it pay off with a title in 2015?

I can't believe he didn't go back to the BoSox. Him and Theo have always been close.

An injury surprisingly cost him his Week 11 start, but if he's able to play, RB Arian Foster should run wild on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12. #FantasyFootball   #NFL   #StartEmOrSitEm  
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster missed his last game with a groin injury, but if he's healthy, he's set to run wild on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12.

Peyton Manning is on pace to break even his own fantasy records from 2013 this year, but what does a short week mean for his matchup with the San Diego Chargers in Week 8? #PeytonManning   #Manning510   #FantasyFootball   #DenverBroncos   #SanDiegoChargers
QB Peyton Manning continues to produce prolific numbers for fantasy owners. Will the streak extend in a Week 8 matchup against the San Diego Chargers?
