If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

We’re halfway through the season for many teams, and many divisions are starting to open up. The Wildcard races are still pretty interesting, being continually shaken up with new teams. Some teams are in a tailspin, while others are picking up steam. In the ever volatile season we’re seeing so far, let’s look at what […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Seven weeks into the season, and there’s still no shortage of dramatic games. The Patriots barely avoided another upset. So did the Giants, for that matter. Houston took command of the AFC. San Francisco took over their division. The Wildcard situation, tight as it is, makes for a constantly shifting group of teams. With everything […]

NFL Replacement Officials Wear Out Welcome During Seahawks-Packers on MNF

Everyone is talking about how poorly the replacement officials are doing, and I can’t say I’m surprised at how bad the first three weeks of the season have turned out. No one could have thought these refs, who are mostly from high school, junior college, or even arena football, could handle the speed and pressure […]

NFL Power Rankings through Season’s End

The regular season has come and gone, the playoff field is finally set, but none of it matters compared to where these teams stack up to finish the season. So I lay it on myself to lay it on you, my faithful SoB readers: I bring you THE FINAL NFL POWER RANKINGS OF THE 2011 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

Just one more week left, and the playoffs will be finalized. New England survived a scare to maintain the top spot, while the AFC West and NFC East will be decided in the final week. The AFC North is still up for grabs; Baltimore is currently in line for a home playoff game for a […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 15: Christmas Edition

Just in time for the celebration of the birth of the Son of God, the crazy improbability of Week 15 in the NFL arrived. A number of teams kept their improbable playoff hopes alive, the Colts managed to win, and the Packers found a way to lose. Did the Colts and Packers hold onto their […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

There’s just two weeks left in the season, but five playoff spots remain un-clinched. The NFC Wildcard race is pretty much locked up, but the AFC race is as heated as ever. New England and Kansas City took advantage of their competition losing to improve their standing. Ditto for Dallas, who reclaimed the division lead […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three games left and the playoffs can get underway. The Texans and Broncos continue to roll. San Francisco is slipping away from a bye. And the Cowboys suddenly aren’t looking their best. Indy’s magic number to clinch Andrew Luck is down to two, so that should be interesting to see what happens with Peyton […]

Green Bay Packers on Track For The Perfect Season

Aaron Rodgers marched the Packers down the field for a game-winning field goal against the Giants in under a minute. It only took two plays to get down the field, that must be a scary thing for NFL teams. That win gives the Packers a 12-0 record so far with four games remaining. Usually undefeated […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

It’s just a month until the playoffs start, and the tension isn’t letting up. Houston is still winning despite being down to their third quarterback. New England is still having trouble playing 60 minutes. Even Green Bay is winning close games now. Both wildcard races are still very heated. And let’s not forget that it’s […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Just over a month remains in the season, and plenty of teams are still fighting for position. The Colts are definitely getting Andrew Luck, but the wild cards and many divisions (as well as most of the byes) are still very much within reach. All of a sudden, San Francisco’s first round bye isn’t so […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

Coming up on Thanksgiving, the Lions will actually have a meaningful game. Both conferences are still in heated races for seeding, with the AFC turning upside down week by week. The Packers and 49ers are still the best of the best, but other teams are on the rise, too. Much has been made lately of […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 10

All is well in the world after the Patriots won Sunday night. My friend who happens to be a Jets fan might disagree (just a hunch based on the number of expletive-ridden texts he sent me over the course of the second half), but as far as I’m concerned, I have never had a more […]

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 […]
