If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

The Cowboys may not be in a good position to play in their home stadium in February, but the two Jersey teams are on track to face off at that time and place. The Chiefs are still holding on, and the Patriots, despite technically being the second-best team in football, are relegated to the Wild […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

As quickly as Week 5, no more unbeaten teams are left. Though there are three winless teams, and surprisingly, none of them are the Lions or Rams. The Chiefs defense looked pretty good, but after losing several gambles and not scoring a touchdown against the Colts, how long can the Chiefs keep it up? And […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

Who could have ever predicted that the Chiefs would be the last unbeaten team left? Or that the Colts wouldn’t be in the picture at all? Or even in 3rd place in their division for that matter? The Rams have an actual winning streak in place, too. The NFL has been turned upside down for […]

2010 NFL Predictions: NFC South

The NFC South is interesting as it holds last year’s Super Bowl champion entering its first post-Super Bowl season in franchise history.  Add to that a healthy, hungry Atlanta Falcons team coming off of a disappointing season last year, and we’re talking about a division that could hold two threats to go deep in this […]

NFC South Fantasy Preview

The NFC South is a story of two “haves” and two “have-nots.” The ultimate “have” are the reigning Super Bowl champs, the New Orleans Saints. From top to bottom, on both sides of the ball, the Saints are stacked with stars that will no doubt have New Orleans thinking repeat, all season long. From there, […]

Welker Returns, Pats Roll Over Falcons 28-10

I know these games don’t count. I know it’s just the preseason. But, football is football. It can be physical whether you’re playing two-hand touch or playing in the Super Bowl. That’s why Wes Welker playing on the second game of the preseason on Thursday night is so remarkable, just seven months after a major […]

Patriots Close to Signing TE Crumpler

Multiple league sources have reported that veteran tight end Alge Crumpler has informed the Tennessee Titans (his former employer) that he has agreed to terms with the New England Patriots. Crumpler, 32, is expected to ink an official deal with the Patriots later this week. The Patriots released free agent Benjamin Watson, who signed with […]

Pats See Perfection More Often Than Not

Has any team faced a tougher schedule then the New England Patriots this season? Consider this, the Patriots opened the season playing five undefeated teams in five straight games. Holy Schnikes! Then after playing two winless teams, they finally played a team without a zero in its record. One week later, they met the 8-0 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

More than half way through, the playoff situation is starting to take shape. The Colts are in reasonable command in the East (ick) over Cincinnati. The Vikings and Saints are still dueling for first in the West. The Wild Card races are the most interesting by far. At 5-4 after starting 5-0, not playing this […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

What a week. The Giants continued their fall from grace. Tennessee is trying to mount what would have to be considered one of the largest NFL comebacks ever from 0-6. New Orleans came back again against a team they probably should never have been trailing by a lot. Even Tampa Bay got in on the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Things in the NFL have remained more or less stable from last week, with the top dogs still in place. Though Brett Favre would probably have rather had more than a few mulligans. Each conference has seen only one potential playoff spot change hands; the NFC reformed itself to look more like last year while […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

The 2009-2010 NFL season is already full of surprises. Who would have thought the lowly Bengals would be so mighty, or the mighty Titans so lowly? Old Man Favre looks quite young and Tom Terrific set records like nobody’s business. Rookies Mark Sanchez and Matthew Stafford are starting to fail their fans. Put all this […]

Brady Improves as Patriots Beat Falcons 26-10

Best known for accumulating video game-like statistics in 2007, the Patriots offense is having trouble converting in the red zone in 2009. How can they solve that problem? Score before you get to the red zone, of course! Brady hit a clutch 36-yard touchdown down the right sideline to Chris Baker on 3rd and 6, […]

Patriots-Falcons Injury Report: Moss, Welker Questionable

The Patriots may be starting Joey Galloway and Sam Aiken at wide receiver on Sunday, and that’s obviously not a good thing. Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Julian Edleman are all listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. It’s likely that at least two of the three will play, but it’s still concerning. […]

Matt Ryan: The Road from Chestnut Hill to Atlanta

Saturday, April 26, 2008 marked the start of a profession, the start of a journey, and the start of a steady income for 99 college football players around the country. But, for Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan, this date meant much more. Born and raised in the small city of Exton, PA., Ryan was a […]
