If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

With just seven weeks to go, and several divisions are still very much up for grabs. For that matter, the whole AFC is on the line, with going from #1 to #6 in a week becoming rather likely lately. The Packers are still the team to beat, but with San Francisco, Pittsburgh and even Houston […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

The NFL season is entering its latter half, and the race is just as exciting as ever. Two divisions have a three-way tie for the lead, and another has the third team half a game back. Both conferences have a division with three teams currently in the playoff bracket; a division has only finished that […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

The season’s about half-way over, and we’ve got a few serious contenders, a few who are losing for Luck, and a good portion still fighting within their division for position. This past week has given us a new AFC leader, confirmed enthusiasm for San Francisco and given us a reason to be bearish about New […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Seven weeks into the season, some of the ties are just starting to break up. Others remain, but every division has a definitive leader, if only half a game. Cincinnati has come roaring back, while Detroit is on a losing streak all of a sudden. New Orleans is back on top of the NFC South, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

With another week done in the NFL, and teams starting to have byes, many teams are still fighting to take control of their divisions and conferences. The Lions and Packers remain unbeaten, while the Rams, Colts and Dolphins remain winless. At this stage, only San Francisco has a multiple-game lead in their division; three other […]

Are the Bengals the Worst Fantasy Football Team?

Sept. 8 marked the beginning of two things: the NFL season and fantasy football. While fantasy football success does not always translate to wins for NFL teams, it means there is productivity on offense. Unfortunately for the Bengals this year, it looks like they will struggle in both areas. The Bengals may have the least […]

Chad Ochocinco Interested in Joining the Patriots?

Two days after the 28-21 debacle by the New York Jets, the Patriots have turned their focus to the 2011-2012 season. One area of need is the wide receiver position. All season, the Patriots used the likes of Deion Branch and Wes Welker, both whom had great seasons. However, with Sunday as the prime example, […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots-Bengals, Week 1

And just like that, all hope is restored in Patriot Nation. Right? OK maybe not all hope, but Sunday’s convincing 38-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals at Gillette Stadium did a lot to calm the concerns of Pats fans, heading into a 2010 season that could go in a number of different directions. Call the […]

Patriots Impress Early and Often to Begin 2010 Campaign

After a shaky pre-season, the Patriots got off to a rousing start, beating the Cincinnati Bengals in Foxboro 38-24. The game was highlighted by Wes Welker’s return, Tom Brady’s return following a car accident, and the regular season debut of the most prolific trio of teammates ever: Terrell Owens (dubbed Batman), Chad Ochocinco (dubbed Robin), […]

2010 NFL Predictions: AFC North

No one really knows what to expect from the Cincinnati Bengals or the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The former has a lot of potential and an equal number of question marks, and the latter is coming off its biggest disappointment in the decade amidst rape allegations and a slap-on-the-wrist suspension for its quarterback. At least we can rely on […]

Ochocinco Already Planning Celebrations for New England

Chad Ochocinco is at it again. He’s well-known for his antics, and now he’s already preparing for the season opener in New England. On his twitter account, Ochocinco tweeted, “If I am able to score Week 1 in New England, I will be taking the Minutemen rifle and firing as they do when the Pats […]

AFC North Fantasy Preview

Into the second week of August we go, where NFL teams will all finally see action this coming weekend to open their preseason slate of meaningless games. We got our first taste of football season with Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game, which featured the Dallas Cowboys topping the AFC North’s defending divisional champs, the […]

The Couch Potato Report: Touchdowns, Tiger, and the first TJ

People call this time of year “the dog days of summer.” Looking back at the last few weekends of televised sports, I’d have to agree… there have been some definite dogs in there. But finally, this weekend, the best televised sport of them all returns to the air waves. I speak of course, about football. […]

Wes Welker Returns to Practice: Too Soon?

When the Patriots took the field for OTAs on Wednesday, a familiar, but unexpected face took the field with them. Only four months removed from major surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL, Wes Welker was just another Patriots player getting some reps in under the beating sun. Extent of Activity While he did […]

NFL Free Agency is Anyone’s Game

This has been some NFL offseason. Well, not quite for Patriots fans. I mean, solving the Vince Wilfork issue was a big accomplishment, as they got their man in the middle, but now need to look for some complementary pieces. They might have missed out on some big name players, but there are more fish […]
