If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three games left and the playoffs can get underway. The Texans and Broncos continue to roll. San Francisco is slipping away from a bye. And the Cowboys suddenly aren’t looking their best. Indy’s magic number to clinch Andrew Luck is down to two, so that should be interesting to see what happens with Peyton […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

It’s just a month until the playoffs start, and the tension isn’t letting up. Houston is still winning despite being down to their third quarterback. New England is still having trouble playing 60 minutes. Even Green Bay is winning close games now. Both wildcard races are still very heated. And let’s not forget that it’s […]

Circular Logic: Patriots’ Playoff Chances are Anyone’s Guess

They were good. Then they were bad. Now they’re good again. That basically sums up the Patriots season so far. With the playoffs all but likely, there should be optimism across New England, yet this is not the case. And after following up a 14-2 regular season with a one-in-done in the playoffs, this lack […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Just over a month remains in the season, and plenty of teams are still fighting for position. The Colts are definitely getting Andrew Luck, but the wild cards and many divisions (as well as most of the byes) are still very much within reach. All of a sudden, San Francisco’s first round bye isn’t so […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

Coming up on Thanksgiving, the Lions will actually have a meaningful game. Both conferences are still in heated races for seeding, with the AFC turning upside down week by week. The Packers and 49ers are still the best of the best, but other teams are on the rise, too. Much has been made lately of […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 10

All is well in the world after the Patriots won Sunday night. My friend who happens to be a Jets fan might disagree (just a hunch based on the number of expletive-ridden texts he sent me over the course of the second half), but as far as I’m concerned, I have never had a more […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

With just seven weeks to go, and several divisions are still very much up for grabs. For that matter, the whole AFC is on the line, with going from #1 to #6 in a week becoming rather likely lately. The Packers are still the team to beat, but with San Francisco, Pittsburgh and even Houston […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

The NFL season is entering its latter half, and the race is just as exciting as ever. Two divisions have a three-way tie for the lead, and another has the third team half a game back. Both conferences have a division with three teams currently in the playoff bracket; a division has only finished that […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

The season’s about half-way over, and we’ve got a few serious contenders, a few who are losing for Luck, and a good portion still fighting within their division for position. This past week has given us a new AFC leader, confirmed enthusiasm for San Francisco and given us a reason to be bearish about New […]

New England Patriots Report Card: Week 8

I don’t know why, but football players more than any other athlete legitimately rally around negative press. So when the media almost universally gave Sunday’s New England Patriots-Pittsburgh Steelers game to the visiting Patriots, a Steelers victory became a near-guarantee. And the Steelers won in truly convincing fashion, doubling up the Patriots in both total […]

Brady, Offense Stymied by Steelers in 25-17 loss

The New England Patriots were blitzed early and often on Sunday, falling 25-17 to the Pittsburgh Steelers to fall to 5-2 on the year at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pa. Offensive Showing The Patriots offensive was ineffective all afternoon. Pittsburgh pressured the New England signal caller and bottled up the Patriots’ rushing attack in the […]

First Half Recap: Patriots Defense Struggling

It took just one drive to see what the Pittsburgh Steelers game plan would be against the Patriots on Sunday evening. Throw and throw often. So far it has worked as the Steelers are ahead of New England 17-10. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed for a career-high 32 passing attempts, completing 23 of them for […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Seven weeks into the season, some of the ties are just starting to break up. Others remain, but every division has a definitive leader, if only half a game. Cincinnati has come roaring back, while Detroit is on a losing streak all of a sudden. New Orleans is back on top of the NFC South, […]

A Look Back at the James Harrison Comments to Men’s Journal

Success breeds contempt, and contempt breeds irrationality. That’s truth. What the Patriots accomplished from 2001 – 2007 on the football field was unparalleled. The franchise broke the record for most consecutive regular season victories, won 3 Super Bowls, and captured the hearts of fans for the manner in which they operated. Unfortunately the adulation amassed was pierced when the “Spy-Gate” controversy surfaced. The “Patriot Way” […]
