The Couch Potato Report: Supersized Edition

Nobody likes a whiner. So I won’t start off this week’s “Couch Potato Report” whining about why there wasn’t a “C.P.R.” last week. I won’t tell you that my awkwardly big feet kicked the switch of my surge protector underneath my computer, powering down my PC and leaving my unsaved, nearly completed article left as […]

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. […]

Beasts of the East Defeat Best of the West in NBA All-Star Game

The Eastern Conference All-Stars defeated the Western Conference All-Stars 141-139 in front of the largest crowd to ever watch a basketball game. A record 108,713 NBA fans descended upon Cowboys Stadium to watch the best athletes in the world (the U.S. Basketball team – plus Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol) put on a […]

NFL Playoff Picture: Divisional Round

Well, the Patriots might be out of the running for a Super Bowl appearance, but there are still eight other teams going strong. Four teams in each conference will be matched up this weekend to see if they have what it takes to get to their championship game. Expect everything, including the kitchen sink, being […]

NFL Power Rankings: Make Your Super Bowl Pick

All the hard work from the regular season has come down to this: the playoffs. Four teams will get a rest, while eight others will play do-or-die games in the Wild Card weekend. Right now, Sports of Boston’s top football minds have ranked the remaining 12 teams and who they will see in the Super […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

With just one week left before the playoffs are set, this is the final installment of the NFL’s weekly playoff hypotheticals. Plenty of surprises have taken place this past week (New Orleans and Indy BOTH lose on home turf?) and many are yet to take place (seven, count ‘em, seven) teams are still alive for […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

The pieces are starting to fall into place. Five of the eight divisions have been officially clinched. Once powerful contenders (Giants, Broncos, Steelers) and teams that once had high expectations (Titans, Falcons, Panthers) are faltering, while newcomers (Saints, Bengals) are making headlines. In the NFC, only the Giants are on the outside looking in, while […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three weeks left until the playoffs are set. Speaking of three, only three teams have guaranteed themselves a playoff spot. In the AFC alone, four teams are tied for the last wild card spot, and three teams are one game behind them. The Colts have already clinched home field advantage, and while the Saints […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

75% of the season is now over, but the playoff situation is still very much up in the air, with only the two unbeaten teams having secured spots so far. The Bengals dropped a spot, and the Pats showed why they’ll have a hard time advancing. We’re really seeing teams fight hard and fast for […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Two unbeaten teams remain, looking to be on a collision course for the Super Bowl. And the Colts have become the first team to guarantee themselves a playoff spot. As always, the wildcard spots are still very much up for grabs and are the most interesting race; six teams in the AFC alone are not […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

We’re getting close to January, and there is still much to be decided. Mathematically, every team is still in the race (even the Browns and Buccaneers, but we can forget about them). Several 6-4 teams are tied with each other for wild card slots. Two 10-0 teams remain, though only one of them is in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

More than half way through, the playoff situation is starting to take shape. The Colts are in reasonable command in the East (ick) over Cincinnati. The Vikings and Saints are still dueling for first in the West. The Wild Card races are the most interesting by far. At 5-4 after starting 5-0, not playing this […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

What a week. The Giants continued their fall from grace. Tennessee is trying to mount what would have to be considered one of the largest NFL comebacks ever from 0-6. New Orleans came back again against a team they probably should never have been trailing by a lot. Even Tampa Bay got in on the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

And then there were two. With Denver dropping to Baltimore, the Colts and Saints are left as the only unbeaten teams in the NFL. The Rams and Titans finally won, leaving the Buccaneers, on a bye week, as the only winless team left. The long-touted return of Brett Favre to Green Bay ended with the […]
