If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

Things have suddenly gotten interesting. The Patriots are no longer the best team around, and the Rams are doing something right. And remember the Saints’ poor start? They’re now half a game out of the best record in the league. Ditto for the packers, and just one game back for the Colts. And three games […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

How about this for an ultimate rematch three years in the making. We all remember the day the undefeated season died, when the Giants beat the Patriots in a game in which New England could have tried harder. But they’re the best team in the league again this year, even without Randy Moss. It remains […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Something’s going on in the NFL. The AFC West is completely flopped from last season, New Orleans lost at home to Cleveland, and the Cowboys and Vikings are still not too good, and Green Bay is borderline. At least we still have one winless team in Buffalo to root for to fail. The Colts are […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

The Cowboys may not be in a good position to play in their home stadium in February, but the two Jersey teams are on track to face off at that time and place. The Chiefs are still holding on, and the Patriots, despite technically being the second-best team in football, are relegated to the Wild […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

As quickly as Week 5, no more unbeaten teams are left. Though there are three winless teams, and surprisingly, none of them are the Lions or Rams. The Chiefs defense looked pretty good, but after losing several gambles and not scoring a touchdown against the Colts, how long can the Chiefs keep it up? And […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

Who could have ever predicted that the Chiefs would be the last unbeaten team left? Or that the Colts wouldn’t be in the picture at all? Or even in 3rd place in their division for that matter? The Rams have an actual winning streak in place, too. The NFL has been turned upside down for […]

2010 NFL Predictions: AFC North

No one really knows what to expect from the Cincinnati Bengals or the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The former has a lot of potential and an equal number of question marks, and the latter is coming off its biggest disappointment in the decade amidst rape allegations and a slap-on-the-wrist suspension for its quarterback. At least we can rely on […]

The Couch Potato Report: Supersized Edition

Nobody likes a whiner. So I won’t start off this week’s “Couch Potato Report” whining about why there wasn’t a “C.P.R.” last week. I won’t tell you that my awkwardly big feet kicked the switch of my surge protector underneath my computer, powering down my PC and leaving my unsaved, nearly completed article left as […]

AFC North Fantasy Preview

Into the second week of August we go, where NFL teams will all finally see action this coming weekend to open their preseason slate of meaningless games. We got our first taste of football season with Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game, which featured the Dallas Cowboys topping the AFC North’s defending divisional champs, the […]

Roethlisberger Suspended Six Games By NFL

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has announced that embattled Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended for the first six games of the regular season. Some behavioral evaluation by medical experts will also be required. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last few months, Roethlisberger was accused of […]

The Law Doesn’t Care About Roethlisberger, But Does the NFL?

After his nth rape case has been dismissed, Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is now awaiting word from the NFL and the Steelers, who are planning a joint punishment of some sort against Roethlisberger, or at least that’s what they’re telling the media. Keep in mind, the league’s conduct policy does not necessitate charges be filed […]

Ben Roethlisberger Avoids Charges, Suspension Likely

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was declared innocent Monday afternoon, after he faced charges accusing him of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old female college student. He may not be totally off the hook, however. According to sources within the Steelers organization, the team will likely suspend Roethlisberger for 1 or 2 games this season. ESPN.com’s Chris Mortensen believes […]

Steelers Trade WR Holmes to Jets: Why?

What in the world is going on in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania? The Pittsburgh Steelers, a team that’s been under the microscope for all of the wrong reasons this offseason, made more news on Monday, trading Super Bowl-MVP wide receiver Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets for a fifth-round draft pick. Yes, you read that correctly. […]

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 […]
