Super Bowl XLV Wrap-Up: Final Musings and Rantings

Rest easy, Roger Gooddell: Your Super Bowl champions aren’t a pack of cheaters. They’re not a bunch of bullies, either. Your Super Bowl MVP isn’t an accused rapist, a dog murderer or a penis-texter. Though your season was plagued with publicity nightmares as varied as a concussion epidemic, a second illegal surveillance accusation and a […]

Poll Of The Week: Super Bowl XLV

The Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl on Sunday, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25.

Who Will Win the Super Bowl?

In recent years, the grand majority of Super Bowl predictions have always favored the same team. The New England Patriots were heavily picked against in their first Super Bowl appearance following the 2001 season, then were heavily favored in their next three. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were heavily favored over the Oakland Raiders in 2002, […]

Patriots Fans Should Wear Cheeseheads on Super Bowl Sunday

If Aaron Rodgers wins the Super Bowl, he will most certainly take his place in the uppermost echelon of quarterbacks. When ESPN and the NFL Network endlessly debate the best quarterback in the game, he will be considered with established greats like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Patriots fans should not feel threatened […]

How Does Ben Roethlisberger Compare?

Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV?  It’s not what anyone expected heading into the playoffs and is definitely not what we hoped for, but we’re all going to watch it anyway.  The stage has been set for a colossal battle between two great quarterbacks, Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburg Steelers, […]

Packers, Steelers Advance To Super Bowl XLV

With a 24-19 loss in the AFC Championship Game, the Jets did not qualify for the Super Bowl, and they have not been to the big game since 1969 (when they won Super Bowl III with Joe Namath under center). In his interview with CBS after the game, Rex Ryan looked as if he had […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

Just one week left in the season! Nine of the 12 teams have punched their ticket so far, and as long as the Rams lose or tie in Week 17, a losing team will make the playoffs. The AFC’s road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro, and unless the Falcons lose at home to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

Just two weeks to go until the playoffs are completely set. And after a concussion, Brett Favre won’t be there to see them. Both the Patriots and the Falcons have a magic number of one to clinch the #1 seeds in their conferences. And at 6-8, one of the Rams or Seahawks have to win […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three weeks left, and Favre and the Vikings are done. And New England is essentially a lock for #1. The Jets, despite doing so poorly, are also pretty well-ensconced in a Wildcard spot, as are the Ravens. The Colts are on the outside looking in, but they do have a home game against Jacksonville […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

Just one short month remains in the season, and still, no team has clinched a playoff berth. That’s not a surprise in the NFC West, where it’s still quite possible the division winner will have a losing record. Only in the AFC West does the division leader have a lead more than one game. And […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Things are getting really interesting. The four best teams in the AFC will all face each other next week, A team may win the NFC West with a losing record, something no division has ever experienced before. And defenses are starting to figure out Michael Vick a little bit. And the Colts and Packers are […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

We’re six weeks away from knowing who will face who in January, and Chilly won’t be around to see it. Houston fell yet again, and the Jets won late again, the Falcons came up big in St Louis, and the Panthers are the new Rams, thanks to Buffalo’s massive comeback over Cincy. Thanks to New […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

With less than two months to go now, the landscape has changed pretty nicely. The Patriots went from contenders to jokes, to contenders again with a defeat of Pittsburgh. Oakland is now in the playoff situation again, somehow. The Cowboys’ coaching change helped them, and hurt the Giants. The Falcons and Jets are back in […]

Gronkowski’s 3 TDs Lead Way as Patriots Win Big in Pittsburgh

Generally speaking, opposing teams rarely want to play the New England Patriots. But opposing teams never want to play the Patriots after a loss, when the Patriots are 24-2 since 2003. Unfortunately, that was the exact scenario the Pittsburgh Steelers found themselves in Sunday night at Heinz Field. Add to it Tom Brady’s 4-1 record […]

Patriots Keys to Victory: Week 10 vs. Steelers

The New England Patriots’ (6-2) five-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt last weekend in Cleveland, where they suffered a 34-14 shellacking at the hands of the Browns. Bill Belichick obviously didn’t read last week’s Keys to Victory column. His defense allowed Peyton Hillis to rush for 184 yards on 29 carries, and the offense […]
