“You shall have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:3

Oakland Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell led his team to a 23-20 victory on Monday night against the Denver Broncos. Larry Campbell sighs wistfully and daydreams for a moment. His son, Jason Campbell, has been a star quarterback for much of his life. He took his high school team to the state semifinals and produced a 13-0 season at Auburn in 2004 when he was the SEC Player of the Year and MVP in the SEC title game. He is now a multimillionaire in the NFL. Yet Larry still wonders...

“Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ.” Colossians 2:16-17

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations . . .” Matthew 28:19

Webb Simpson shot a six-under-par 65 for a 15-under-par 269 to win the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday. The victory was his second win in three weeks. “I’m a big believer in prayer…” PGA rookie Webb Simpson told the largest room of reporters and television cameras he had ever faced in his young career. He had just earned his way into the national spotlight with a three-under 68 that placed him at the top of the leaderboard on the second day of the first FedEx Cup tournament of 2009. He would go on to finish eighth in a field that had some of the best and far more experienced players in golf...

The NFL season is just getting underway and with that comes fantasy football! Here are 10 quick fantasy football predictions from our own fantasy guru, Bryce Johnson... 1. Matt Ryan will be the sixth best fantasy quarterback this year. He has so many weapons to build on from last year’s success and the Falcons will put a bigger emphasis on the passing game this season, too. 2. Mark Ingram will live up to the hype this season and be the most productive rookie...

“Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.” 1 Peter 3:8 It’s not uncommon for conflicts to occur between players off the field. Sometimes it’s small, and is quickly resolved, but other times, if not dealt with, it can linger. These conflicts, although not on the field or court, end up affecting the entire team and how they play. Whether players admit it or not, their selfishness and stubbornness affect the team...

This is the first of what we hope to make a part of the regular rotation here on SportsSpectrum.com. Every Thursday we are going to dig through the Sports Spectrum archives to find one of our great features from yesteryear. We're calling it "Throwback Thursdays." Enjoy. Colt McCoy and Sam Bradford are – gulp – good friends. Wait! Take a deep breath. Don’t do anything rash. This might help ease the pain a bit: Both quarterbacks are also friendly with fellow signal-caller Tim Tebow, whose Florida Gators chomped the Sooners in last season’s Bowl Championship Series title game. “Sam, Tim and I have a lot in common,” McCoy says. “It was fun getting to know those guys at all of the award events last year, and we’ve stayed in touch. I don’t know if our fans would like it, but Sam and I have gotten really close. We talk pretty regularly.” A Longhorn (McCoy) befriending a Sooner (Bradford)? Will wonders never cease?...
