Who Makes Up Your “Mt. Rushmore of Hatred?”

Hatred. We all have it, whether we admit it or not. As sports fans, we’re fueled by hatred. There wouldn’t be rivalries if it weren’t for hatred. We wouldn’t get so emotional after big games, win or lose, if it weren’t for hatred of the opponent. This week, two of the world’s most hated athletes […]

Brett Favre Ankle Injury, Not Sexting, Threatens Streak

Brett Favre has been in the news a lot lately, and if you live in the Boston area, you’re going to hear even more about him over the next week as Sunday’s Patriots-Vikings game approaches. Last week, he met with NFL officials and admitted leaving those ridiculous voice mails on Jenn Sterger’s phone in 2008. […]

Et Tu, Brett? – Favre Scandal Disappointing

On December 21, 2003, Irvin Favre died of a heart attack near Kiln, Miss. One day later, his son Brett played one of the best games of his life. Against the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football, he passed for 399 yards and four touchdowns. His teammates rallied around him, catching bomb after bomb, sometimes […]

Vikings’ Childress the Essence of Idiocy on MNF, Jets’ Ryan a Close Second

I started this Tuesday the way I start all Tuesdays here in Istanbul, with a pot of coffee and an archived Monday Night Football game via NFL Game Pass. This week’s matchup featured the Minnesota Vikings at the New York Jets, a much-anticipated showdown between teams that both fell one game shy of the Super […]

Did Brett Favre Sext Jenn Sterger?

With a Monday Night showdown looming between Brett Favre’s Vikings and his former team, the New York Jets, allow us to revist the Favre “sext” saga. Don’t know what sext means?

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 1

We all love summertime. The mercury in the thermometer peaks, and so does the number of scantily clad women at the beach. But personally, I’m very happy to see the summer come to a close. Not because I want to see the lovely beach bunnies layer up for colder weather ahead, but because with the […]

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. Last season, the Vikings earned the top spot in this foursome, coming ever-so-close to a Super Bowl appearance, instead losing in overtime of the NFC title game at the hands […]

Favre Watch: 2010

“To be or not to be; that is the question.” – Hamlet “To retire or not to retire; that is the question.” – Brett Favre For the third consecutive year, Old Man Favre is at it again. Two years ago, he retired from the Packers after they didn’t want to put up with this from […]

Brett Favre a Grandfather?

Check your calendar. No, it’s not one of our April Fools Day posts. No, I’m not making a poor play on words and calling Brett Favre an old guy. Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, 40, is now officially a grandfather, according to multiple reports. Favre’s 21-year-old daughter, Brittany, gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday, […]

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW: A TALE OF TWO QB’S

It will also be the first time Brett Favre will play in the […]

Week 15: Start’Em/Sit ‘Em

Last week, I did the 2009 All-Disappointment Team because in most of my leagues I did not make the playoffs due to a lot of players underachieving or getting injured. Call it a bitter article if you want, but this week I’m doing a complete 180 and am going to list the players who far […]

Week 7: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Week seven marks the first of three weeks where six teams will be on their bye week. In these next three weeks you will have to scramble to find replacements for your starters. Word of advice: don’t be afraid to get creative. The typical move would be to replace your player on a bye week […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 6

The weather might be colder nowadays, but the fantasy football season is truly heating up! Also hot are my recent picks, as my “guru-nicity” and “expert-itude” are finally shining bright, after yet another successful week of fantasy prognosticating. Feast your eyes on my Week 5 results… Last Week’s High Five Donovan McNabb: 16 for 21 […]

Would the Real Steve Smith Please Stand Up?

It’s pretty funny how much everyone overreacts to a couple weeks of football. For example, I’ve been hearing a lot of debate this week about which Steve Smith is the better play for the rest of the season. Is this a serious question? Steve Smith (NYG) has been great this year but I am here […]
