Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 4

Ok, who’s ready for a Chiefs-Bears Super Bowl? We all know that the likelihood of that happening is still very slim, but with the opening three weeks of the season in the books, the odds of Kansas City and Chicago meeting in February has gone from “no way in heck” to “so you’re saying there’s […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 1

We all love summertime. The mercury in the thermometer peaks, and so does the number of scantily clad women at the beach. But personally, I’m very happy to see the summer come to a close. Not because I want to see the lovely beach bunnies layer up for colder weather ahead, but because with the […]

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 […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 18

Quarterback: B- If you told me Tom Brady had 42 attempts in a game, I’d tell you he easily threw for over 300 yards. And if you then told me he threw for 200 yards, I’d be surprised.  But 154 yards? On 42 attempts? You’re kidding, right? No, unfortunately not. This is what happened on […]

Patriots-Ravens: Previewing the First Playoff Meeting

They worked all season to get to this point. Now, the New England Patriots will have to best a perennial defensive power house in the Baltimore Ravens. It is one of the four rematches from the regular season being played this weekend. The Patriots will hope for a repeat of the 27-21 win during Week […]

Key Matchup: Ray Rice vs. Jerod Mayo

The Baltimore Ravens (9-7) come to Foxboro on Sunday to take on the AFC East Champion New England Patriots (10-6) in an intriguing Wild Card showdown. There will be many important match-ups in this game, but for the sake of time and space, I’m going to focus on the one match-up I think will have […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 13

In a lot of leagues, the playoffs have begun. This is because most leagues don’t play during week 17. I don’t see why. In the SoB league, we play all the way through to the end. This means that we are in our final week of our regular season. I think playing during week 17 […]

High Five/Low Five: Week 10

Dear National Football League, Before I begin, I would like to thank you for the many years of entertainment you have given me and the millions of other football fans in the country. Your league has surpassed the rest and is truly the new “national pastime.” For five months every fall and winter, you have […]

Week 10: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Have you watched that new show on ABC called Flash Forward? For those who haven’t here’s a quick summary. The whole world blacked out for 137 seconds, during which, everyone saw a vision that took place six months in the future. I’m going to stop right there because that’s all I need for this introduction. […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 9

I did it! I finally dropped Eddie Royal in both of my leagues. I am free of his crap! I feel like I’ve been in an abusive relationship for nine weeks and now have found the courage to rid myself of the pain. Oh god, just watch him take off now. Headlines Larry Johnson Released […]

Patriots Outlast Ravens, 27-21

Tom Brady was coming off the back of two shaky outings in a row, and you don’t need me to tell you how rare that is. The defense that had lost multiple leaders and was looking eminently mortal. But, Tommie and the gang were back in business against a tough Baltimore Ravens defense, and even […]

Week 4: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Fantasy football is a cruel sport. I find it to be very exciting, but it usually ends with me screaming at the television set because my player didn’t get the ball four plays in a row inside the opponent’s five yard line. It’s funny because most of us think that our player should be the […]
