The Colts Will Win Super Bowl XLIV

(Let me start by saying that I am not happy the Colts beat the Jets, I had a great title for a Jets Super Bowl preview: Get Ready for some REX on the Beach… but I digress) We were here recently. Just three years ago, the Colts were up against a team everyone was calling […]

The Experimental Pro Bowl Format was Better

To nobody’s surprise the offenses lit up the scoreboard in the 2010 Pro Bowl as the American Football Conference edged the National Football Conference, 41-34. It was a typical Pro Bowl. There were no hard hits, with the exception of San Diego wideout Vincent Jackson’s crack-back block on Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews. Most of […]

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW: Reliving History

What’s a better scenario then a Colts-Jets matchup for the AFC Championship game? Some would argue the Chargers would be a better team, or a Patriots-Colts showdown would be a perfect way to kick start a new decade of football, but honestly, there is not greater matchup then the one presented to us. This season […]

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 […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 17

The end of the year, the end of the decade, and the end of another fabulous fantasy football season is upon us. There is joy. There is pain. There is triumph. There is defeat. Ok, lots of defeat. After all, there can only be one fantasy football champion crowned in your league, and if you’re […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 16

Tis the end of the line for a lot of you out there. Most leagues have wrapped up their action in Week 16, leaving some to celebrate and others to plan for 2010. To those in leagues where Week 17 is the championship game, then you need to stick around and soak up all of […]

Be a Titans Fan For a Day!

Let’s be frank.  The New England Patriots had their chance to stop the Colts from making a run at its record 21 straight regular season wins.  They blew it.  Since then, The Colts struggled against the Ravens and, thanks to Ed Reed’s stupidity, squeaked away with a win.  Then they appeared to be getting blown […]

TGIF: What Has Become of Yahoo! Fantasy Football’s First Round?

Now, I am focusing on just one provider of fantasy football, so the rankings may differ from other leagues. Every season, for people who are not that familiar with the game of fantasy football, we tend to lean heavily on the rankings. Even if you are a seasoned veteran, you can’t help but be influenced […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots vs. Colts, Week 10

You probably didn’t think fumbles could happen from the sidelines, did ya? Well Sunday night in Indianapolis, that’s exactly what happened. Coach Bill Belichick, the infallible one himself, figuratively fumbled the game away, opting to go for the first down on 4th-and-2, at their own 28 yard line. And just like that, a great effort […]

Rebutting “Conventional Wisdom”

By Charlie This is in response to John, who thinks that going for it on 4th and 2 is too risky, and in accordance with George, who praised Bill Belichick for the move. The math has been done on Belichick’s already-infamous decision to go for it on 4th down on Sunday night. But, there are […]

4th and Too Much to Risk

George disagrees with John, and thinks we should be praising Bill Belichick. Charlie challenges John’s claim that Belichick’s call was “risky.” Coach Belichick fancies himself a powerful wizard when it comes to making gutsy but logical play calls, but on Sunday, the wizard didn’t find himself taken seriously. 4th and 2, up by six, 2:08 […]

Why We Should Be Praising Bill Belichick

John disagrees with George, and thinks going for it on 4th down was too risky. Charlie, meanwhile, feels that Belichick made a sound decision. When the Patriots’ offense took the field on fourth down in the fourth quarter, my initial reaction was one of shock and confusion. However, as time has passed and emotions have […]

Patriots are Ready for the 8-0 Colts

New England Patriots (6-2) at Indianapolis Colts (8-0) Time: 8:30 p.m. EST Place: Indianapolis, Indiana TV: NBC Radio: 98.5 FM – The Sports Hub It is the most anticipated match-up of the regular season. No two teams have exemplified what it means to be a champion this decade more then the Indianapolis Colts and New […]

A Better Look at the Brady vs. Manning Debate

I’m pretty sure everyone in the world is aware that the AFC East-leading Pats are taking on the undefeated Colts this Sunday night, even people on the other side of the world who have the misguided notion that football is a sport played exclusively with your feet by men who purposefully fall down anytime an […]

Patriots Gaining Momentum, Colts Facing Injuries

Bob Sanders tore his bicep last week versus the San Francisco 49ers and is out for the season—the usual. This is without a doubt a blow to the Colts defense, but something the Colts staff probably planned for since Sanders has missed 40 of 87 games in his six year career. The Colts still have […]
