The Everyday Mailbag- 1/4/11

The NFL season has come to an end and the second season begins. The NBA is exciting a lot of people as well so far. And just like these captivating sports, the mailbag is full of excitement and interesting questions!

Q: Who has been the most disappointing team in the NBA thus far this season?
-Ryan J., Henning, TN

A: I think that the Mavericks have been very disappointing. With the pieces they have, they should be scoring more points and they should be able to outscore people. Instead, they look like they're asleep at the wheel a lot. Another team that I would say has been disappointing as well is the New York Knicks. They need to get it together as soon as possible to be considered a legit title contender.

Q: Which "big name" coach in waiting do you see taking an opening, if any which spot?
-Jabbar L., Nashville, TN

A: I know that Jeff Fisher will be the number one choice for a lot of teams and he will be the first coach that's waiting on a job to be hired. He's already reportedly interviewed for the Rams, Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers want to interview him as well.

Q: Should a player who gets ejected from a bowl game still win the MVP (ex: Alshon Jeffrey)?
-Ricky K., Syracuse, NY

A: No way a player that gets ejected win the MVP of a bowl game. In my estimation, for as much as you give your team, you also give a lot away and become selfish when you put your own personal agenda ahead of the team.

Q: ‎​What are the Colts doing? They fire their whole team management staff(the Polians). Anything to do with Peyton Manning and the NFL draft?
-Dallah S., Manhattan, NY

A: I think that if you lose one player and your whole team tanks because of one player, then that's an indictment on the GM and management staff as to what they have or haven't brought in to make the team complete. I think that's where this decision comes from, not what they want to do in the raft and Manning's future.

Q: How well do you think the Tennessee Titans will do in the upcoming draft?
-James R., Nashville, TN

A: I think the Titans will do just fine. Mike Reinfelt seems to pick the right pieces through the draft and I think he will find the safety and offensive line help that he needs in the draft or in the free agent market.

Q: Do you think tht the Colts made a bad move by letting their GM & Vice President go????
-Jason J., Memphis, TN

A: I think the Colts made a good move by letting the Polians go. Its time to turn the page.

Q: The New York Knicks made a nice move getting Tyson Chandler, but he's not a shooter. Would you say they need someone else to help Melo with scoring?
-Lee L., Chicago,IL

A: I don't think they need help with scoring. Amare will be back in a few to help that scoring out. Hopefully for Knicks fans, Tyson will get it figured out defensively because the Knicks are getting smacked around on the boards and not playing good defense.

Thanks to all that sent in questions and remember, if you have sports questions, I have answers.

    Just have to say I agree wow great start to new year colts management was being hidden by the great play of peyton manning the Knicks should learn to move the ball and the will become more dangerous team also if you dnt move the ball offense that affects the defense taking your teammates confidence on both ends

  2. Really surprised about the firing of the Polians. Reasoning behind it? It’s not their fault the Colts are 2-14. If anyone, it should be Jim Caldwell to blame, but still, even he is not to blame. There’s no way around it, with Peyton the Colts would have their regular 12-4 season and nobody would be talking badly about them.
