2010 NFL Predictions: AFC West

The Chargers are the obvious favorite, but the rest of the division is full of mixed expectations. Some see the Chiefs as a young team ready to cause trouble, and some see them as a team stuck behind an overrated Matt Cassell. Some trust Jason Campbell in a new environment with the Raiders and some […]

AFC West Fantasy Preview

The West is best? Not in the NFL they aren’t. Today’s divisional fantasy preview takes us to the AFC West, where the Chargers reign supreme. And then there’s everyone else. You’re not going to find much elite talent in this division, but I’m here to point you in the direction of some solid middle round […]

TGIF: No Marshall? No Problem!

It has been speculation all week, but now the bad news is a reality. Broncos WR Brandon Marshall will miss the team’s season finale this Sunday against Kansas City after tweaking his hamstring in practice earlier in the week. Head coach Josh McDaniels made the decision today to bench Marshall before causing further harm to […]

Top Ten Shakeups for the 2009 NFL Season

The 2009 NFL Season starts Thursday, and everyone is excited about it. Which teams will be the heavyweights this year? Which players will be the standouts? Will all the teams with quarterback problems solve them? After both #1 seeds from the 2007 season failed to even make the playoffs in the 2008 season, anything can […]

I Called It: Vikings Beat Chiefs

As I predicted, the Vikings defeated the Chiefs in a close game, 17-13. In an odd twist of fate, though probably not too surprising because of Favre’s extensive time off, Matt Cassel showed more potential in more playing time. Both quarterbacks started, though Favre only played in two series, going 1/4 of passes for a […]

Favre Versus Cassel: The Rubber Match

After waffling more than an IHOP chef, Brett Favre is back in action. He picked a great time to do it, too. On Friday at 8:00, Favre’s Vikings will face Matt Cassel’s Chiefs in Minnesota. Last season, Favre’s Jets and Cassel’s Patriots split the season series one game each, with the Pats winning in Week […]

Matt Cassel: The New Chief Player in Kansas City

Former Patriots backup and 2008 starting quarterback Matt Cassel has signed a six-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. He will be paid $63 million over the six years, with $28 million guaranteed. This lucrative agreement is certainly due to Cassel’s breakout 2008 season and the franchise tag the Patriots placed on him before sending […]

Matt Cassel Trade: Controversial Dealings?

I know it’s logical given the history of Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli to assume that there was shenanigans going on the big trade between the Chiefs and Patriots, with Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel going to the Chiefs for the 34th pick in the draft. It seems laughable that a franchise QB and a […]

Matt Cassel Traded to Chiefs

Scott Pioli and Bill Belichick have made a trade for the second straight day, with the Patriots sending QB Matt Cassel to the Chiefs, according to the NFL Network’s Adam Sheffner. According to the Patriots’ team website, the Chiefs will send their 2009 second round pick (34th overall) for Cassel and Vrabel. Reaction: Oh my […]

Chiefs Hire Scott Pioli As New GM

It’s offical. Another big branch from the Bill Belichick tree has been cut down. The Kansas City Chiefs have hired Patriots VP of Player Personnel Scott Pioli to run their football operations in Kansas City. The hiring of Pioli likely means that head coach Herm Edwards will likely be fired as a new administration will […]

Why Have So Many NFL Coaches Been Fired?

We have entered the part of the offseason where NFL teams sends a few grown men to apply for unemployment, while simultaneously employing a similar number of men in a new role. What I’m referring to is when the teams fire their head coaches (and/or coordinators). It is an annual, unavoidable occurrence. So with that, […]

Tom Brady Injury Video

Tom Brady Video: Here is a clip that features the injury to Tom Brady’s left knee (presumed to be a Torn ACL)…and the Matt Cassell era begins. Note: This video may be taken down eventually by the NFL, but while it is here, enjoy.

Patriots Win 17-10 After Brady Injury

Game Update Without Brady, the Patriots managed to beat the Chiefs 17-10 for their NFL record 20th consecutive regular season victory. Their last two losses were in the Super Bowl against the Giants and the 2007 AFC Championship against the Colts. Matt Cassell stepped in to go 13-18 for 152 yards and one touchdown. He […]
