Fantasy Football Report: Week 16

One more week to go. In reality, most of the NFL’s playoff spots have been determined and now those teams will be resting players. It is important not to get screwed over by coaches *cough, Andy Reid, cough* who choose to sit their star players. On the opposite side of the spectrum we also have […]

TGIF: Start Matt Cassel This Sunday

With news this week of the unfortunate passing of Matt Cassel’s father, the status of the Patriots QB was left up in the air. Understandably everyone in New England would and should understand if Cassel missed the start against the Raiders. However, Matt Cassel has returned to practice and odds are he will start this […]

Jets 34, Patriots 31 (OT) – The Verdict

Okay so it took a week to publish this, it won’t happen again! I have to say I nearly turned this one off when it was 24-6 and the Jets took over on downs late in the second quarter. You have to love the comeback by the Pats led by Matt Cassel and the final […]

Jets Beat Patriots Despite Cassel’s 400 Yards

Despite unkind weather, the Jets and Patriots combined to put up 65 points Thursday night, but the Patriots came up on the losing end in overtime, 34-31. Jay Feely hit the game-winner from 34 yards out, but Brett Favre led the way all game for New York with 258 yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions (shocking, I know). […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 4

Four weeks out of seventeen. Your season is just about 25% over. If your team sucks, then accept it. If you’re team is great, then bask in the glory. Some players have reached a point where they are just not going to come through for you (I am looking at everyone on the Bengals here). […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 3

Week 3 is all said and done, and the sting of the Patriots’ blowout loss is slowly waring off (unless you faced Ronnie Brown). Even if you’re 0-3 like SoB’s Geoff and reader Kris in the SoB Fantasy Football League, there’s still time to rebound and sneak into the playoffs. You just need to start […]

Patriots 19, Jets 10 – The Verdict

Against all odds, the Patriots defense stepped up and Matt Cassel controlled the game as New England took advantage of opportunities and beat the Brett Favre led Jets 19-10. Big plays all over the field from the defense led by Ellis Hobbs and Adalius Thomas. Here’s a look at The Verdict: How Will the Patriots […]

TGIF: Brett Favre and the Madden Curse

Consider this your final warning. The Madden Curse is one of the more heavily talked about occurrences in all of sports. It ranks above the dreaded Sports Illustrated Curse and my new personal favorite, the Gillette Fusion Curse. Starting in 1999, the Madden franchise began putting cover athletes on the front of the game. A […]

TGIF: OK, Who Else is Overrated? WR Edition

This is the second part of my two-part series that I started last week. Now, being considered an overrated player takes into account how a player has done in the past, who is the supporting cast, and where they should be drafted in your leagues. So, to clarify once more, Adrian Peterson is a great […]

Packers Trade Brett Favre to Jets

Breaking News According to Foxsports.com, the Packers have finally put an end to the Brett Favre era in Green Bay. It’s rumored that the Jets will send a conditional 2009 4th round pick based on their 2008 performance to the Packers. If Favre sees 80% of the team’s snaps at QB AND somehow the Jets […]

Should Brett Favre Come Back?

Brett Favre, you like the offseason spotlight, don’t you? Brett Favre’s desire to come back from retirement (Golf isn’t that good, I guess) has immediately taken precedence over any of the current NFL news. I think it’s safe to say that the guy who looked not so spectacular for a few years until last year […]
