Notes and Observations Week 8: Brady, Gronk Dominate Bears in 51-23 Patriots Win

Games like Sunday against the Bears highlight just how different the Patriots are than the rest of the NFL.

New England Patriots Report Card: Week 16

The Miami Dolphins narrowly avoided disaster Saturday against the New England Patriots. Somehow a group of talented, motivated football players broke into their locker room, knocked everyone out, stole their uniforms and took the field for kickoff. The “Dolphins” went into halftime up 17-0. Luckily, the true – and truly terrible – Dolphins regained consciousness […]

Patriots Clinch First-Round Bye, Overcome 17-Point Deficit Against Dolphins

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 9

This week, I’m going to attempt to put the “fast” in “Fantasy Fast Forward.” Why? Because as I’m typing this, I’m just a few short hours away from jetting off to Las Vegas, and like any other guy I know, I’m a procrastinator and haven’t packed a darn thing yet. So instead of racking up […]

Chung and Tate Lead Way as Special Teams Dominate Dolphins

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall bailed out on his rout, but quarterback Chad Henne still threw it to where he thought Marshall would be.

Ok, who’s ready for a Chiefs-Bears Super Bowl? We all know that the likelihood of that happening is still very slim, but with the opening three weeks of the season in the books, the odds of Kansas City and Chicago meeting in February has gone from “no way in heck” to “so you’re saying there’s […]

Week 4 Pickups

With no major injuries this week, the choices on the waiver wire are slim, particularly amongst running backs. A hot pickup in past weeks, Peyton Hillis, had a huge day for Cleveland this past Sunday with Jerome Harrison sidelined.  Hillis is currently available in about 25 percent of league, and is an obvious person to […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 3

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 2-0. So are the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears, for that matter. The Minnesota Vikings are 0-2. So are the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers, all three predicted to be 2010 playoff teams. So what does that all mean, really? Are the Bucs and Chiefs bound […]
