NFC North QB Rankings: Kirk Cousins, Aaron Rodgers, or Matthew Stafford at No. 1?

Will Ragatz4 hours agoFor the majority of the last decade, there was zero question about who owned the title of best quarterback in the NFC North. Aaron Rodgers won two MVP awards and made seven Pro Bowls during the 2010s, establishing himself as arguably the best all-around QB in the NFL while leading the Packers to six division titles and a Super Bowl victory.As we enter the 2020s, Rodgers no longer has a stranglehold on that unofficial crown. Even as the Packers returned to the NFC Championship game in 2019, it's clear that the gap between Rodgers and his closest competitors in the...

Err Jordan: Michael Jordan's baseball adventure

This article originally appeared in the March 14, 1994 issue of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.He called the first base umpire "the ref." In the field, he played a single into a double and an out into a single. Though he moves well on the base paths, his best time to first base, 4.35 seconds, is slower than average.

Barely concealing their sneers, the scouts and players and writers ask one...
