If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

We’re getting close to January, and there is still much to be decided. Mathematically, every team is still in the race (even the Browns and Buccaneers, but we can forget about them). Several 6-4 teams are tied with each other for wild card slots. Two 10-0 teams remain, though only one of them is in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

More than half way through, the playoff situation is starting to take shape. The Colts are in reasonable command in the East (ick) over Cincinnati. The Vikings and Saints are still dueling for first in the West. The Wild Card races are the most interesting by far. At 5-4 after starting 5-0, not playing this […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

What a week. The Giants continued their fall from grace. Tennessee is trying to mount what would have to be considered one of the largest NFL comebacks ever from 0-6. New Orleans came back again against a team they probably should never have been trailing by a lot. Even Tampa Bay got in on the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

And then there were two. With Denver dropping to Baltimore, the Colts and Saints are left as the only unbeaten teams in the NFL. The Rams and Titans finally won, leaving the Buccaneers, on a bye week, as the only winless team left. The long-touted return of Brett Favre to Green Bay ended with the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Things in the NFL have remained more or less stable from last week, with the top dogs still in place. Though Brett Favre would probably have rather had more than a few mulligans. Each conference has seen only one potential playoff spot change hands; the NFC reformed itself to look more like last year while […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

The 2009-2010 NFL season is already full of surprises. Who would have thought the lowly Bengals would be so mighty, or the mighty Titans so lowly? Old Man Favre looks quite young and Tom Terrific set records like nobody’s business. Rookies Mark Sanchez and Matthew Stafford are starting to fail their fans. Put all this […]

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 […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 1

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. We’ve braved the brutal cold of winter. We’ve weathered the wet spring and early summer. And now that September is upon us, we find ourselves on the eve of yet another NFL season. And for you fantasy football freaks, this week marks the first of many where you’ll find […]

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 […]

TGIF: Brett Favre Fantasy Value

The Brett Favre media circus rolled into Minnesota in full force and left a devastating wave of damage. In the end, Favre signed a two-year deal with the Vikings and will be their starting QB for the 2009 season. My condolences go out to Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels who will never see the field […]

Favre Returns to the NFL…Again

Brett Favre announced on Tuesday that he would be returning to the NFL, signing a $25 million, two-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings. After last season, he announced that he would retire from the NFL in February, but he obviously cannot stay away from either the lure of football or money. At this point in […]

Brett Favre to Sign with Vikings

I can hear the figureheads at ESPN celebrating now, as their prodigal son hath returneth! Of course, I’m talking about Brett Favre, who again decided to postpone his retirement for one more season, one more big fat paycheck ($10-12 million), and one more chance at inflating an already huge ego. Pending a physical (which I’m […]

Brett Favre Should Stay Retired

Brett Favre has found a way to hijack more off-season football news once again after a retirement. His biceps tendon in his throwing arm is torn, but he won’t get surgery so that his hope of proving to the Packers that they need him will live on. Brett Favre has even tired out his #1 fan […]

TGIF: Is Adrian Peterson Overrated?

Adrian Peterson is not worthy of a first round pick. First of all, he plays for the Chicago Bears and they have not had an established running game in years…kidding. Yeah, I was going to waste space on THAT Adrian Peterson. Oh, its fun to laugh. Don’t confuse this piece with my man KC’s literary […]
