Week 2 Notes and Observations: Patriots Win Ugly Home Opener vs. the Jets, 13-10

I will preface this by saying that you don’t lose a season in September. No matter how ugly the first two games have been, keep in mind the Patriots are now 2-0 with both wins in the division. Yes they are banged up, and the offense has looked far from sharp, but the defense has […]

Big Words, Bigger Deeds: Jets Defense Stymies Brady, Patriots 28-21

For six straight days, the New York Jets did nothing but talk trash, building up their third match this season against the New England Patriots while putting down the Patriots themselves. At times, their talk was goofy, at times it was nasty, at times it was threatening. But all of it would have been for […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 13

Welcome to Week 13 of the NFL season. By this point, you and your fantasy team fall into one of three categories… you either A) have clinched a playoff spot and are sitting pretty, just waiting for the fun to begin, B) have fallen out of contention and have turned your focus to Christmas shopping, […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 16

Happy Holidays! Sure, that greeting could refer to Christmas, Chanukah, Boxing Day, Kwanza, Festivus, or whatever else you may be celebrating nowadays. But I’m thinking of a “football-ish” reason to celebrate…it’s Fantasy Football Championship weekend! Well, for most of us. If you’re in one of those loony leagues that use Week 17 as your championship […]

Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, Visanthe Shiancoe, Dustin Keller. What do these players all have in common? They are all on their byes this week. Why do you care? Well, you don’t really, but consider this – out of all the players on a […]

Week 3: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Twitter is a wonderful thing. I mean, who doesn’t want to know what everyone is thinking at all times? How else would I know that Rodney Harrison thinks the Patriots are going to have trouble covering Tony Gonzalez this weekend? Or that Jonathan Stewart ate some chunky soup last night and likes the new Jay-Z […]

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, […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 8

I am coming to you from a barely functioning keyboard that has a missing “A” key and every key on the left side stick because some Dr. Pepper got in there and everything is covered in a delicious dried up syrup. Add this to my hard drive crashing a few weeks ago and we can […]
