Between the amazing regular-season statistics, the playoff stumbles, the injuries and the late-game heroics, reportedly retiring QB Tony Romo leaves behind one of the most complicated on-field legacies of any recent NFL player. I have no idea where I would rate him among the top quarterbacks of the past 20 seasons.
The Twins are on pace to go 162-0. Granted, it's the smallest possible sample size. But in winning their season opener Monday for the first time since 2008, at least they have some positive momentum. They'll go for two in a row Wednesday against the Royals (noon, FSN).
"Nice opening day win. Well-pitched with some patient at-bats contributing to a big inning. Glad to see someone else's bullpen melt down for once."

"I only remember one other quarterback requesting his release while simultaneously pledging that he was retired."
