Week 3: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Twitter is a wonderful thing. I mean, who doesn’t want to know what everyone is thinking at all times? How else would I know that Rodney Harrison thinks the Patriots are going to have trouble covering Tony Gonzalez this weekend? Or that Jonathan Stewart ate some chunky soup last night and likes the new Jay-Z […]

What the NFL Kickoff Special Taught Us

You have to hand it to the NFL; they know how to put on a show. The NFL Kickoff Special had it all: fireworks, huge musical acts, and a hard fought, old-fashioned game of football. The Steelers and Titans duked it out in what was a battle of the defenses. There were four Titans sacks, […]

OMG! Tom Brady is HOTT, or Not, LOL

According to recent research, apparently from teenage girls across the country, Tom Brady is only the eighth best looking quarterback in the NFL. At least BC alum Matt Ryan tops the list, with a 99.82% symmetrical face, compared with 99.14% for Brady. But, does it really matter at all? Beauty is only skin deep, and […]

Roethlisberger Accused of Sexual Assault

Multiple news sources report that Andrea McNulty, an employee of Harrah’s Casino, filed a lawsuit last week in Nevada accusing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her in July 2008. Roethlisberger is not under criminal investigation, and it is not yet clear if Ms. McNulty filed a criminal complaint. Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett […]

Super Bowl XLIII Storylines to Watch

Sunday, February 1st is the 43rd Super Bowl and the two teams facing off are the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers (in case you’ve been asleep for a week). Now, many people think this matchup is going to be boring as the teams have not played recently. And, to top it off, the Arizona […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 17

The season has come to an end. Was it as good for you as it was for me? Hopefully a lot of you are celebrating fantasy championships and are currently rubbing it in the faces of co-workers and/or schoolmates. If you were lucky enough to nab DeAngelo Williams off of waivers then good for you. […]

Steelers 33, Patriots 10 – The Verdict

Well, that was a kick in the teeth. The final score doesn’t nearly indicate how close the game was in the first half – if not for the Stephen Gostkowski missed chip-shot field goal the Pats would’ve been ahead at the half. The third quarter was as ugly an offensive performance as you will see […]

Turnovers Kill Patriots in Loss to Steelers

The Patriots pulled their best Plaxico Burress impression by shooting themselves in the foot in a 33-10 loss to the Steelers in a cold rain at Foxboro. New England had five turnovers, including three lost fumbles in a disastrous third quarter. Matthew Slater fumbled a kickoff deep in Patriots territory, which led to a touchdown […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 9

I am part of two fantasy football leagues and it is a good thing I only report in detail on the Sports of Boston league. I am not ashamed to admit that I am in dead last in the other league. In terms of points, my team is not the worst. In fact, the team […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 5

Tom Brady, Brain Westbrook, Peyton Manning, Carson Palmer, Steven Jackson, and Randy Moss. What do they all have in common? They all went in the first round in the SoB Fantasy Football League. Guess what? They have performed far below expectations. Seriously, the first round is supposed to set the pace for your whole draft. […]

TGIF: OK, Who Else is Overrated? QB and RB Edition

A few weeks ago I mentioned how I thought Adrian Peterson was overrated. Again, I’d like to point out that I know he is an incredible athlete, I was just pointing out why he was not worthy of a top two or even three pick. This put the wheels in my mind in motion and drove me […]
