Patriots-Packers Preview

Both the Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots carry the burden of history on their shoulders. The Packers used to be one of the great franchises in sports history.

The Couch Potato Report: NFL, PGA, MLB, VMAs, and More Fun with Acronyms

For weeks, writing this article was a challenge. The summer months brought little in the ways of big sporting events, making it difficult to hype up a lackluster docket of weekend TV each and every Friday. But now… problem solved. The NFL kicks off its 2010 season this weekend, and I for one am here […]

NFC North Fantasy Preview

Our fourth divisional fantasy preview takes us to the NFC North, a division that features heated rivalries and is filled with top notch fantasy talent.

High Five/Low Five – Week 14

Deck the halls, hang the mistletoe, and pour me some egg nog…it’s fantasy playoff time!

Last week, I got right down to business with a […]

TGIF: What Has Become of Yahoo! Fantasy Football’s First Round?

Now, I am focusing on just one provider of fantasy football, so the rankings may differ from other leagues. Every season, for people who are not that familiar with the game of fantasy football, we tend to lean heavily on the rankings. Even if you are a seasoned veteran, you can’t help but be influenced […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 8

I think it is time that we made it official. Next season, nobody should draft LaDainian Tomlinson in the first round. I know, I know, he used to be a great back and was fantasy football’s most dominant player. I myself never had the pleasure of having LT on any of my football teams, and […]
