If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

The pieces are starting to fall into place. Five of the eight divisions have been officially clinched. Once powerful contenders (Giants, Broncos, Steelers) and teams that once had high expectations (Titans, Falcons, Panthers) are faltering, while newcomers (Saints, Bengals) are making headlines. In the NFC, only the Giants are on the outside looking in, while […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three weeks left until the playoffs are set. Speaking of three, only three teams have guaranteed themselves a playoff spot. In the AFC alone, four teams are tied for the last wild card spot, and three teams are one game behind them. The Colts have already clinched home field advantage, and while the Saints […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

75% of the season is now over, but the playoff situation is still very much up in the air, with only the two unbeaten teams having secured spots so far. The Bengals dropped a spot, and the Pats showed why they’ll have a hard time advancing. We’re really seeing teams fight hard and fast for […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Two unbeaten teams remain, looking to be on a collision course for the Super Bowl. And the Colts have become the first team to guarantee themselves a playoff spot. As always, the wildcard spots are still very much up for grabs and are the most interesting race; six teams in the AFC alone are not […]

TGIF: Do You Smell What the Rock is Cookin’?

The Washington Redskins backfield has had a tough go of it this season. First off, Clinton Portis, after having 325+ carries in four of his last five seasons, seems to have finally hit the running back wall. He was struggling to hit 4.0 ypc and had just one TD on the season until he left […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Brady Impressive in Patriots’ 27-25 Win

All eyes were on Tom Brady for his first in-game action since tearing his ACL in Week 1 last season. Facing the Eagles in the Patriots’ first game of the preseason, Brady completed 10-15 passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw an interception, but was very effective while playing most of the […]

Michael Vick Signs with Eagles

So, all those rumors about the Patriots acquiring disgraced NFL quarterback Michael Vick were unfound and untrue. Vick instead signed a deal with the Patriots’ opponent Thursday night, the Philadelphia Eagles. Once the highest paid player in the NFL, Vick signed a one-year contract worth $1.3 million with an option for a second year at […]

Patriots Trade Ellis Hobbs

The Patriots have shaken up things even more on Sunday as cornerback Ellis Hobbs has been traded to the Eagles for two 5th round picks. We’ll have more on this in my draft analysis shortly. Hobbs was a starter in 2008 and was very valuable in the kick return game. With a lot of new […]

Patriots Trade for Greg Lewis, Sign Springs

The Patriots acquired WR Greg Lewis from the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday to help bolster their WR depth. The Patriots also received an undisclosed 2010 draft pick, and in return sent the Eagles in undisclosed 2009 selection. The Pats also reportedly signed veteran CB Shawn Springs from the Washington Redskins. Springs, 33, was released last week […]

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 […]
