Heat Ratio: The Brandon Graham dilemma

Greg Trott/AP

The Eagles are still feeling the joy of winning the Super Bowl, but some important decisions need to be made. One of those decisions is the fate of Brandon Graham. Do you re-sign the Super Bowl hero or let him walk away after this season? Is the age of 30 what scares you?

Speaking of 30, that number didn’t scare the Atlanta Falcons from making Matt Ryan the first $30 million per year quarterback in the National Football League. Ryan is steady, durable and consistent. Would you say he is underrated as an NFL play-caller?

When the Phillies traded Jonathan Papelbon to the Washington Nationals in 2015, did they realize what they were getting in Nick Pivetta? How good has he been and will it continue?

Has the art of base stealing been lost in Major League Baseball? From Rickey Henderson to Jose Reyes, base stealing has always been synonymous with the game. However, it seems to have lost its appeal over the years. Why is that? Who are your favorite base stealers and what are some of the moments you remember from your era of baseball?

While the Celtics are battling the Cavs for the Eastern Conference crown, the Sixers are thinking about their future. They will pick 10th overall and also No. 26 in this year’s NBA draft… for now. Will they package the picks and move up? Could the Celtics use the No. 3 pick the Sixers sent them for Markelle Fultz to go out and acquire Kawhi Leonard?

Fantasy Football is starting to heat up and the projections are starting to fly. ESPN came out with their Top 50 PPR players, and when it comes to tight ends, they have Ron Gronkowski, Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz ranked in that order. Do you agree?

Along those same lines of fantasy sports discussion, where do you stand on hometown fantasy drafting? Do you stay away from drafting players on your local squads or do you welcome the interest? If drafting from your local team, does it steer your focus of the actual game off track?
