Did the Denver Broncos Really Lose to the St. Louis Rams?

The NFL is a league of parity. Just look at the New York Jets beating the Pittsburgh Steelers after Ben Roethlisberger had thrown for six touchdowns in consecutive weeks, or the Seattle Seahawks falling to 6-4 after being crowned one of the likeliest repeat champions in several years. Still, despite the knowledge that anything can […]

NFL Week 11 Betting Tips

The first week of November treated the so called “Betting Expert” rather rude, as I recorded a 1-2 record last week. The one win as well was not pretty, as Kansas City just squeaked by Buffalo 17-13. I look to make this week a lot more memorable for winning reasons. I currently am saddled with […]

Pats Pass on Welker, Sign Amendola for Five Years, $31M Instead

Well, it didn’t take long for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots to replace wide receiver Wes Welker. Within hours of Welker’s departure to the Denver Broncos on a two year, $12 million contract, the Patriots  have reached a five year agreement with former St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola, according to ESPN’s Adam […]

Week 8: Notes and Observations vs. St. Louis Rams in London

Allow me to do my best impersonation of Bill Belichick and try to find negatives in an overwhelmingly positive game. After all, I wouldn’t be a Boston sports fan if I still couldn’t find things to complain about…

Patriots to Return to London Next Season to Face Rams

Let’s hope the British don’t have any leftover grudges from the Revolutionary War, because the Patriots are scheduled to return to London next season for the NFL’s annual trip across the pond. On Oct. 28, the New England Patriots will square off against the St. Louis Rams at 1:00 p.m. EST in Wembley Stadium to […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 16: New Year’s Edition!

In honor of the ongoing holiday season and the impending arrival of 2012, I made the executive decision to continue the cheap gimmick approach to my column. Welcome to NFL Power Rankings: New Year’s Edition! (Insert pathetic party blower noise maker toot here.) Just one more week to go on this puzzling NFL season (a […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 8

Week 8 brought the trend of Tebowing to an end (I hope), gave us one less team without a win, caused me to scold Chris Johnson, and led to losses by three of my top ten teams. (I’ll get over the Patriots loss eventually hopefully please don’t talk about it.) Plus, I bring you the […]

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 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 […]

2010 NFL Predictions: NFC West

Everyone knows this division is the perennial weak link in the NFC. With the Arizona Cardinals officially hitting “rebuilding” status, by inexplicably giving up on Matt Leinart and finally letting Anquan Boldin go, the 49ers are looking to jump at the opportunity. Come to think of it, San Francisco seems to have the only team […]

NFC West Fantasy Preview

Today I bring you the eighth and final installment of our divisional fantasy previews, finishing up with the wild NFC West. For the last few seasons, it’s been the Arizona Cardinals who have had a strangle hold on the top spot in this division, two years ago advancing to represent the NFC in the Super […]
