I believe it was the great philosopher Harry Dunne that quipped to renowned bard Lloyd Christmas, “Just when I thought you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!”
That’s where we were last week after Good Andy Dalton’s appearance following a series of clunkers, trying to convince everyone that t
Somewhere between the time he graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale and the time he set foot on Georgia’s campus, Gene Atkins decided to drop the E in favor of an O. Thus, we now have Geno Atkins. (Check out the feature by Justin Williams in the November issue, on newsstands tomorrow, for more on this.) In the part of the program that lists n

To paraphrase the words of a lyrical luminary, one Mister Cool James, don’t call Geno Atkins’ performance on Sunday a comeback. He’s been here for years. Four years, to be exact. And over that span, we’ve come to expect the type of dominating performance Geno showed in Cleveland. Unfortunately for the team, his individual performance did not translate into a win.
