With another week done in the NFL, and teams starting to have byes, many teams are still fighting to take control of their divisions and conferences.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

We’re already through a quarter of the NFL season, and we’ve already seen a lot of surprises. Some people though Detroit would be good, but I don’t think anyone thought they’d be 4-0 good. Buffalo finally knocked off New England. Philadelphia has been quite lackluster. Tampa’s holding their own in the ultra competitive NFC South. […]

Reche Caldwell Latest ex-Patriot Arrested For Marijuana Possesion

First Laurence Maroney. Then Mike Vrabel (felony theft). And now Reche Caldwell. According to the Gainesville Sun, the former Patriots wide receiver was arrested after police pulled him over for a suspended license. The report says that deputies found a bag of marijuana next to the driver’s seat. Caldwell never lived up to the hype […]

PATS on the Back – Week 7 vs. Chargers

A win is a win, and that’s what the New England Patriots have to take from Sunday’s 23-20 victory over the mysterious San Diego Chargers. Why mysterious? Because how does a team rank at the top of the NFL in total offense and total defense (based on yardage), and still have just a 2-5 record? […]

Patriots Survive Chargers Fourth-Quarter Surge, Win in San Diego

In key situations in the fourth quarter, Stephen Gostkowski is the perfect field goal kicker. Kris Brown… not so much. Brown’s 50-yard field goal attempt, pushed back 5 yards by a San Diego false start penalty, bounced off the right goal-post, and the New England Patriots held on to beat the San Diego Chargers, 23-20. Brown’s missed field […]

With no major injuries this week, the choices on the waiver wire are slim, particularly amongst running backs. A hot pickup in past weeks, Peyton Hillis, had a huge day for Cleveland this past Sunday with Jerome Harrison sidelined.  Hillis is currently available in about 25 percent of league, and is an obvious person to […]

2010 NFL Predictions: AFC West

The Chargers are the obvious favorite, but the rest of the division is full of mixed expectations. Some see the Chiefs as a young team ready to cause trouble, and some see them as a team stuck behind an overrated Matt Cassell. Some trust Jason Campbell in a new environment with the Raiders and some […]

AFC West Fantasy Preview

The West is best? Not in the NFL they aren’t. Today’s divisional fantasy preview takes us to the AFC West, where the Chargers reign supreme. And then there’s everyone else. You’re not going to find much elite talent in this division, but I’m here to point you in the direction of some solid middle round […]

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 […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-16-10

The races are starting to open up. Minnesota is 3.0 games ahead of their competition, and the Cardinals and Reds are a vast, vast 1.0 games apart. The NL Wildcard is now in a tie, while it’s still easily the Rays and Yankees in the American counterpart. San Diego did well against San Fran to […]
