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 […]

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. […]

Fantasy Football: Houston Texans RB Arian Foster’s Woes

There is one word in fantasy that no one wants associated with their star player: injury. Arian Foster owners have been all too familiar with this word lately. After racking up 1,616 yards on the ground and 604 receiving yards with 18 total touchdowns in 2010, people were wishing for the opportunity to snag him […]

Where Are They Now: Eugene Wilson, CB, Illinois

Heading into the 2003 season, the Patriots signed veteran safety Rodney Harrison to play along side one of the league’s best in Lawyer Milloy. When Milloy wouldn’t restructure his contract, the Patriots released the Pro-Bowler just five days before the season. Milloy joined AFC east foe Buffalo. The immediate result? A 31-0 thrashing from the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

The Cowboys may not be in a good position to play in their home stadium in February, but the two Jersey teams are on track to face off at that time and place. The Chiefs are still holding on, and the Patriots, despite technically being the second-best team in football, are relegated to the Wild […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

As quickly as Week 5, no more unbeaten teams are left. Though there are three winless teams, and surprisingly, none of them are the Lions or Rams. The Chiefs defense looked pretty good, but after losing several gambles and not scoring a touchdown against the Colts, how long can the Chiefs keep it up? And […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

Who could have ever predicted that the Chiefs would be the last unbeaten team left? Or that the Colts wouldn’t be in the picture at all? Or even in 3rd place in their division for that matter? The Rams have an actual winning streak in place, too. The NFL has been turned upside down for […]

2010 NFL Predictions: AFC South

Big surprise:  everyone picked the Colts.  A battle for second should entertain this year, with the Texans and Titans both boasting capabilities to put up a winning season.  A second opportunity for Vince Young to prove his worth will make for an entertaining storyline, as will Chris Johnson’s encore performance and Matt Schaub’s push to […]

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 […]

AFC South Fantasy Preview

The next stop on the fantasy preview train brings us to the AFC South. This division has some of the best top shelf talent of them all, featuring one of the top 3 fantasy QBs in Peyton Manning, two of the top 4 fantasy RBs in Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew, two of the top […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 17

Quarterback: C I was tempted to cut Tom Brady some slack and give him an “Incomplete” on his report card this week, but the Patriots quarterback played most of the game on Sunday. He was replaced by rookie Brian Hoyer (Michigan State) in the second quarter, and on the Patriots’ last drive.  Brady’s stat line was […]

Welker Hurt in Patriots’ Loss to Texans

The New England Patriots faced off against the Houston Texans Sunday afternoon at Reliant Stadium in Houston. The Patriots were looking to build momentum for their trip to the playoffs and take steps towards clinching the 3-seed. The Patriots played well for three quarters, but succumbed to what has been a consistent problem all year: […]

Pats Meet Texans in Season Finale

Are you ready for the bye-week? New England has already secured a playoff spot and there is no big difference between the three and four seed. With the Bengals probably doing the same, New England will most likely play just a little to avoid rust, then the Brian Hoyer show begins. This is all good […]
