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 4

We’re already through a quarter of the NFL season, and we’ve already seen a lot of surprises. Some people though Detroit would be good, but I don’t think anyone thought they’d be 4-0 good. Buffalo finally knocked off New England. Philadelphia has been quite lackluster. Tampa’s holding their own in the ultra competitive NFC South. […]

Super Bowl XLV Wrap-Up: Final Musings and Rantings

Rest easy, Roger Gooddell: Your Super Bowl champions aren’t a pack of cheaters. They’re not a bunch of bullies, either. Your Super Bowl MVP isn’t an accused rapist, a dog murderer or a penis-texter.

Poll Of The Week: Super Bowl XLV

The Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl on Sunday, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25.

Who Will Win the Super Bowl?

In recent years, the grand majority of Super Bowl predictions have always favored the same team. The New England Patriots were heavily picked against in their first Super Bowl appearance following the 2001 season, then were heavily favored in their next three. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were heavily favored over the Oakland Raiders in 2002, […]

Patriots Fans Should Wear Cheeseheads on Super Bowl Sunday

If Aaron Rodgers wins the Super Bowl, he will most certainly take his place in the uppermost echelon of quarterbacks. When ESPN and the NFL Network endlessly debate the best quarterback in the game, he will be considered with established greats like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Patriots fans should not feel threatened […]

Packers, Steelers Advance To Super Bowl XLV

With a 24-19 loss in the AFC Championship Game, the Jets did not qualify for the Super Bowl, and they have not been to the big game since 1969 (when they won Super Bowl III with Joe Namath under center). In his interview with CBS after the game, Rex Ryan looked as if he had […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

Just one week left in the season! Nine of the 12 teams have punched their ticket so far, and as long as the Rams lose or tie in Week 17, a losing team will make the playoffs. The AFC’s road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro, and unless the Falcons lose at home to […]

PATS on the Back: Week 15 vs. Green Bay

In between those obnoxious Hyundai commercials, the Patriots were able to squeak out a victory on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, edging out Matt Flynn and the Green Bay Packers, 31-27 at Gillette Stadium. That’s right… Matt Flynn, household name, right? There hasn’t been a quarterback that’s looked that good against the Patriots since… well… Cleveland’s […]

Dan Connolly Kickoff Return Helps Patriots Outlast Packers at Gillette 

The Green Bay Packers hit the New England Patriots as hard as they possibly could. But in the end, it was the Packers who found themselves on the ground. The Patriots sacked backup Packers quarterback Matt Flynn five times, including twice in the last four downs of the game, and the Patriots held on to […]

Packers vs. Patriots: Who’s Matt Flynn?

As the Patriots prepare for their Sunday night showdown against the Green Bay Packers, there will be an unfamiliar face at the helm for the Packers.
