Week 4: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Fantasy football is a cruel sport. I find it to be very exciting, but it usually ends with me screaming at the television set because my player didn’t get the ball four plays in a row inside the opponent’s five yard line. It’s funny because most of us think that our player should be the […]

Top Ten Shakeups for the 2009 NFL Season

The 2009 NFL Season starts Thursday, and everyone is excited about it. Which teams will be the heavyweights this year? Which players will be the standouts? Will all the teams with quarterback problems solve them? After both #1 seeds from the 2007 season failed to even make the playoffs in the 2008 season, anything can […]

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 […]

Who Are Your Most Hated Sports Figures?

With the announcement this week that the third incarnation of Brett “Farv-ruh” is upon us, I found myself re-evaluating my feelings on the sports figures I loathe most. I quickly found that Minnesota’s No. 4 has vaulted to No. 1 on my list. I mean, come on Brett…go away already! I’ve never seen anyone who has reached […]

I Called It: Vikings Beat Chiefs

As I predicted, the Vikings defeated the Chiefs in a close game, 17-13. In an odd twist of fate, though probably not too surprising because of Favre’s extensive time off, Matt Cassel showed more potential in more playing time. Both quarterbacks started, though Favre only played in two series, going 1/4 of passes for a […]

TGIF: Brett Favre Fantasy Value

The Brett Favre media circus rolled into Minnesota in full force and left a devastating wave of damage. In the end, Favre signed a two-year deal with the Vikings and will be their starting QB for the 2009 season. My condolences go out to Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels who will never see the field […]

The Boys are Back: Brett Favre, Tom Brady, Michael Vick

A weekly column taking a look at the sports stories that left us asking the question, “did that just happen?” In no particular order… Brett Favre pulls another “just kidding” and is back from retirement Surprise. Since he’s only done this two other times (note: sarcasm), I think this latest move didn’t actually shock anyone, […]

Favre Returns to the NFL…Again

Brett Favre announced on Tuesday that he would be returning to the NFL, signing a $25 million, two-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings. After last season, he announced that he would retire from the NFL in February, but he obviously cannot stay away from either the lure of football or money. At this point in […]

Junior Seau Returning to NFL?

Say It Isn’t Seau? Will Junior Seau make a return to the Patriots during the season? Only time will tell. Seau told a radio station in San Diego that he will keep in shape should the Pats call during the upcoming season. “I‘ll definitely look at it at the end of October or November,” Seau […]

Brett Favre Should Stay Retired

Brett Favre has found a way to hijack more off-season football news once again after a retirement. His biceps tendon in his throwing arm is torn, but he won’t get surgery so that his hope of proving to the Packers that they need him will live on. Brett Favre has even tired out his #1 fan […]

Favre to Return…..Yet Again?

Please tell me this clown is joking. Brett Favre may be coming back yet again to the NFL, this time with the Minnesota Vikings. ESPN’s Ed Werder reports Favre will meet with Vikes head coach Brad Childress about possibly returning to the NFC North. The move would eventually pit Favre against his former team, the […]

Favre Set to Retire

In the on again, off again cycle of Brett Favre’s career the current mood seems to be off. Sources are reporting Brett Favre has told his agent to tell the Jets he plans to retire from the NFL – again. Favre did a similar song and dance after last season, only to come back and […]

ERIC MANGINI FIRED

Sweet vindication. A day after the Jets slumped to another late season defeat, reports out of New York are that Mangini will be fired today. The Jets were 8-3 at one point this season but slumped to a 1-4 finish, thanks in large part to Brett Favre who threw eight interceptions in the last few […]

Where the New York Jets Went Wrong

Thanks to the results of the Week 17 games this weekend, the New York Jets did not accomplish what they set out to do when they went on a spending spree this past offseason (that being making the playoffs). Now, some of it was bad luck. After all, if they were in the AFC West, […]
