James Mungro Memorial Award Week 3 preview: The Lions’ final four could become a final one

Jed Collins, Greg Hickman, George Johnson and George Winn all showed up to Lions OTAs as nobodies. In the months since then they’ve sacked and celebrated and ran and Jedded their way into our consciousness. Now, in three days, it’s possible one of these players will never be anonymous again (in this small corner of […]

The story of Jacques McClendon and why it’s coming to precipice in the Lions vs. Jaguars game

Football came easy for Jacques McClendon. In high school he was a three-year starter on offense and defense at the Baylor School in Chattanooga, TN. He earned All-State honors twice. As a senior he played in the Army All-American Bowl. Gatorade named him their Player of the Year in Tennessee. Rivals ranked him a four-star recruit […]

An update on the former football winners of the JMMA: Jacques McClendon is in a fight for his career

Amid all the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) madness, we can’t overlook our former winners. Rodney Austin seems fine. He took 28 snaps on offense on Saturday, the seventh most on the team, and played well. At one point he even pulled off his patented move, plowing into a Brown after the […]

James Mungro Memorial Award Preview: The guide on which backups to watch when the Lions face the Browns

Your update on the baseball winners of the JMMA says it’s time to give Blaine Hardy the championship belt

The first year of the JMMA award, Chris Bootcheck obliterated the International League and led all Triple-A All Stars in votes. The second year, Jose Alvarez made the major leagues and took a no-hitter almost five innings deep. Then, Bootcheck got called up to the Yankees and spent one glorious inning pitching to the team that […]

The James Mungro Memorial Award finale: A sputter at the end and a controversial finish

The last time we checked in on our competition for the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending), we had the greatest comeback of all time still alive, a pitcher with a chance at a scoreless spring training and the people’s champ. Now we have none of those. Jhan Marinez started the spring competition […]

James Mungro Memorial Award update: The greatest comeback of all time is still alive

The finale is coming. We’re two weeks away from the start of the regular season and possibly one away from naming our fifth winner of the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending). Five players headed into this week. Three came out of it. One of them might be the most unlikely candidate of […]

Your James Mungro Memorial Award update: In which this turns into the best competition ever

This is the fifth version of the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending). While the award’s history is short in time, it’s long in events. We found what possibly could be the most entertaining pitcher of a generation in the first go-round and a fun-loving offensive lineman who has a fetish for weird […]

Your James Mungro Memorial Award update gets bad before it gets good

We’re one week into spring training and/or the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending) competition. The Tigers have played six of their 33 scheduled spring training games. There have been some spectacular performances and, for the most part, they haven’t been in a good way. But before we get to those, we need […]

Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Blaine Hardy

(Previously: Jhan Marinez, Craig Albernaz, Ezequiel Carrera, Trevor Crowe) Might as well close out the week with another nominee post. And since this is probably the last one of the season, we might as well close it out with somebody who has a legitimate chance at making the team. That man would be Blaine Hardy. […]
