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 […]

What Will Become of David Tyree?

He was a hero, a villain, and now he’s out of the job. David Tyree, the man who made the infamous helmet catch against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, was cut by the Giants to meet the 53-man roster requirement on Saturday. He wasn’t a starter, or even an everyday player. Believe it or […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Diving Deep into Depth Chart Battles

By now, many of your fantasy football drafts probably have come and gone. Sure, your Labor Day weekend may feature a last minute draft or two, but at this point, your teams are most likely drafted and you’re just sitting back, waiting for Thursday’s kickoff to the season. But if you are sitting back, you […]

UConn OT Beatty Goes to NY Giants

The Connecticut Huskies never had a draft pick higher than the third round in their history until today as William Beatty makes it three first day picks for the school.  He joins new Patriot Darius Butler, also in the second round, and now Colt running back Donald Brown in the first round.  Beatty is a […]

NFL Playoffs: Full of “Upsets”

Last weekend, it was ensured for another year that the Super Bowl Champion would not be the No. 1 seed from the AFC or NFC. This time we had the New York Giants being eliminated by the Philadelphia Eagles and the Tennessee Titans being eliminated by the Baltimore Ravens. Both the Giants and Titans were […]

So Long, New York Giants!

Continuing the trend of home teams in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs, the Giants lost to the Eagles Sunday, just like the Panthers and Titans lost on Saturday. The Eagles took care of Eli Manning’s crew 23-11. Eli Manning finished 15-29 for 169 yards and zero touchdowns. Manning was touched for two interceptions, […]

SoB Game of the Year: Super Bowl XLII

Boston teams played well over 300 games (the actual math would take way too long to calculate) during the 2008 calendar year, and the Sports of Boston staff was asked to choose the Game of the Year. Many chose games in which Boston teams were victorious (which happened a lot in 2008), but the clear […]

Everyone is Guilty in Plaxico Burress Incident

One of the major areas of criticism with sports teams is how they handled their own players causing trouble. Often, there is in-house fighting that we don’t hear about because the teams keep it from the public. But, when it happens in the public eye, we have a way to judge how a team disciplines […]

FOX: Plaxico Burress Shot Himself in Leg

According to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, Giants WR Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself in the right thigh Friday night. He was already ruled out of Sunday’s game with a thigh injury, but a bullet wound may push him out of action for much longer. Several reports aside from Glazer’s say that the Burress incident occurred […]

Giants: Best Team in the NFL?

One of the big questions coming in to the Monday Night Football game against the Browns (10/13) was whether the Giants truly were the best team in the NFL, since they were one of the two remaining undefeated teams and they were the defending Super Bowl Champions. A win, many speculated would guarantee that they’d […]

TGIF: OK, Who Else is Overrated? QB and RB Edition

A few weeks ago I mentioned how I thought Adrian Peterson was overrated. Again, I’d like to point out that I know he is an incredible athlete, I was just pointing out why he was not worthy of a top two or even three pick. This put the wheels in my mind in motion and drove me […]

Post Super Bowl Coverage

In one of the biggest upsets in NFL history, the Giants beat the Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII. We will never forget the Giants’ agonizing final drive, in which they took a 3-point lead with 35 seconds remaining. What did we learn from this game? Are you guys still down about the game? C’s […]

Oh My God

That was the most excruciating loss ever.
