Why Ryan Switzer is More Than a Cole Beasley Insurance Policy in Dallas

By Lindsey Jones
PSDC Cowboys and Rangers Writer

The Cowboys drafted another slot receiver, Ryan Switzer, in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL draft even though their most productive receiver in 2016 was slot receiver Cole Beasley. Switzer and Beasley are very similar receivers and could make the Cowboys offense even more potent than it was last year which ranked fifth in the NFL in total offense with 26.3 points per game.

5 Actors Who Should Play Nathan Drake in the Uncharted Movie

By Darreck Kirby

Despite its efforts to bring Naughty Dog’s immensely successful franchise, Uncharted to the big screen, Sony has routinely been forced back to the drawing board. But, with the recent additions of Shawn Levy, producer of Stranger Things, in the Director’s seat, as well as Tom Holland of Spider-Man Homecoming being cast as young Nathan, things finally appear to be turning around. Hopefully, the other shoe doesn’t take long to drop and we get our leading man to play Nathan Drake. Who might that mythical casting be? Here are a few suggestions…

You Are Sick of the Cubs? TOUGH!

By Joe Hines

I’m sure Cub fatigue has set in for much of the baseball-loving world. As I’ve continued forth for the last 109 years, watching team after team, even the MARLINS, win world championships, the Cubs have lovably lost year after year. And when I say that I’ve proceeded for 109 years, it’s only partially absurd if you consider that each year counts as two for most of Cubs history. I’m only slightly older than halfway, so I can safely say that I have come along for each and every year. So when the Cubs won last season, I say I get to celebrate as long as I damn well want to.

Podcast Shanks – Mavs and Thunder Free Agency

NBA free agency is always one of the more excitement and in many cases, tense times of year. Contenders can be reduced to bottom feeders with the devastating loss of a superstar while other teams who may be on the bubble could surge ahead thanks to a key acquisition. Or, you could just be the damn Warriors and Spurs and sign everybody…

For teams who don’t have that luxury, however, Darreck Kirby and Brennan Scala of Podcast Shanks take a look at the prospects for the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder and discuss how they can try to get back in the thick of contention.

Why Joey Gallo Needs to Stay in the Big Leagues

By Lindsey Jones
Texas Rangers Beat Writer

There is a lot of talk these days on what the Rangers should do with Joey Gallo when All-Star and Gold Glove third baseman Adrian Beltre comes off the disabled list in a few weeks. While the easy decision would be to send Gallo down to the minors, considering he is boasting a .190 batting average, the Rangers need to look beyond the below-mediocre average and look at what Gallo has done to help them get back to .500 and how he could potentially help them catch the Astro’s for the AL West title.
