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.

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 […]

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 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Things in the NFL have remained more or less stable from last week, with the top dogs still in place. Though Brett Favre would probably have rather had more than a few mulligans. Each conference has seen only one potential playoff spot change hands; the NFC reformed itself to look more like last year while […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

The 2009-2010 NFL season is already full of surprises. Who would have thought the lowly Bengals would be so mighty, or the mighty Titans so lowly? Old Man Favre looks quite young and Tom Terrific set records like nobody’s business. Rookies Mark Sanchez and Matthew Stafford are starting to fail their fans. Put all this […]

Roethlisberger Scores Big On Raw

Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was well-hyped heading into his stint as guest host on Monday Night Raw, and he lived up to it. The night started with “Big Ben” coming out to a mixture of cheers and boos (which he attributed to the mixture of Steelers and Eagles fans in attendance). His first official act […]

Roethlisberger Goes Raw

In recently announced news, Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be the guest host of WWE’s Monday Night Raw next week. It appears that Big Ben won’t be coming alone; the entire offensive line will be joining him. Roethlisberger will join an already lengthy list of entertaining celebrity guests as the host of WWE’s premier […]

What the NFL Kickoff Special Taught Us

You have to hand it to the NFL; they know how to put on a show. The NFL Kickoff Special had it all: fireworks, huge musical acts, and a hard fought, old-fashioned game of football. The Steelers and Titans duked it out in what was a battle of the defenses. There were four Titans sacks, […]
