Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 17 in the National Football League!
- Tampa Bay closes out the 2012 regular season with a nice win against a not-so-competitive Atlanta Falcons team in Week 17. I’ve said it all season long and it’s only fitting that I say it again, Tampa is a good team and one that people should look out for in 2013. Really like what they accomplished this season, would’ve loved to seen them compete for a playoff spot in the final weeks.
- Not the way Atlanta wanted to end the regular season I’m sure but now they can look towards the playoffs and hope that the defensive injuries they suffered on Sunday aren’t that bad. Not sure what to think of this Falcons team heading into the playoffs but I’ll tell you this much, they don’t look like a ..click here to read more

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 16 in the National Football League!
- Congrats to the Falcons on clinching the #1 seed in the NFC and having home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Personally, I believe while it’s a tremendous feat, they may be the weakest #1 seed in the NFL playoffs in some time. Their passing offense is great but their run game and defense can be shaky depending on the week. Let’s see if the ATL can make me eat my words yet again this season.
- Congrats to Calvin Johnson on breaking Jerry Rice’s single-season receiving record! Can we now say that the “Madden Curse” is done?
- Quietly, the Green Bay Packers are continuing to emerge in the NFC. While it is the Titans, they kept the momentum going throughout this one. Things are getting interesting for the Pack…

Welcome back owners. Here we are back for Week 10 of the NFL season, and wow, what a wild week we had for Week 9. Explosive days by many stars like Doug Martin, Adrian Peterson, Brandon Marshall and yes that Bears defense made some owners numbers boom! However some of us had to be on the losing end of those numbers. How about the days turned in by the Eli Mannings or Jamaal Charles? Well I fell prey to some of it, where in one league my whopping 166 points was still not enough to out do my opponent who posted a cool 173, topped by DeSean Jackson and only his second TD of the year! Hey, it happens.
Well back to the really good news where your good friend, The Shark had a really nice week. I am 3-1 in my 4 leagues and a cool season overall record of ..click here to read more

The run for the Lombardi Trophy is underway. The proverbial starting gate has been sprung open, and the 32 NFL teams are fighting for position. As it is said in the NFL, the season is a marathon and not a sprint. A team can not win the Super Bowl in four games, but an early loss can come back to haunt the team later when it comes down the stretch for playoff positioning.
There are 12 more games to go, and the NFL is at the quarter pole. Of course, my being a horse racing fan, I am going to use a little horse racing jargon. I can’t help myself.
The race to the Super Bowl to me is like the Kentucky Derby. After all, there is all the pomp and circumstance with both events, etc. As the Derby is 1 1/4 ..click here to read more

Since it is the off-season for the NFL, the “experts,” and bloggers like myself are coming up with items like lists, and power rankings. Even former NFL players who one would think would know something about the game make somewhat questionable statements, like former Giant receiver Amani Toomer did when he said that Dallas QB Tony Romo is a better quarterback than Giants QB Eli Manning.
I am guessing Mr.Toomer wants to be like former Giants teammate, the disgruntled RB Tiki Barber, and make controversial statements just to hear himself talk. Then again, I don’t remember Toomer getting a Super Bowl ring being on the same team as Tony Romo. I thought it was Eli Manning who led that magnificent 4th Quarter comeback in Super Bowl 42, and threw the winning touch down to Plaxico Burress. That team was the Giants, ..click here to read more

It seems hard to believe that this will be the 46th time that the NFL will be bringing us a Super Bowl. 45 other games have been played and through the years we’ve seen a lot of stuff to make us salivate and wonder, “What can possibly top that?”
In the spirit of the big game coming up this Sunday between the AFC’s New England Patriots and the NFC’s New York Giants, I have decided to take us all down memory lane and look back at my top 10 best Super Bowls and look back at some other stuff that makes Super Sunday great.

Well, as Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin said at Tuesday’s press conference, “It feels good to be in the field of twelve.” The “field of twelve” that Coach Tomlin is referring to, is obviously the twelve teams in both the AFC and the NFC who qualified for the post season. As the avid horse racing fan that I am, I call it the race to Super Bowl XLVI.
Being the horse racing fan that I am, I am going to model this blog somewhat like a racing program, and give my readers analysis, and the highlights and the low lights of the teams’ seasons, and give the final odds of the team winding up in the winner’s circle with the proverbial garland of roses on their proverbial backs, and holding up the Lombardi Trophy ..click here to read more

Defense wins Championships is not only true for the NFL, but also for Fantasy Football. I hear all these experts say that whatever defense you play does not matter well I beg to differ. I believe that playing a good defense is another great way to get extra points.
A good Defense with a good Special Teams is great to have on your Fantasy team. The perks to having a good all around Defenses are extra points with return yards, defensive touch downs/special teams touch downs, interceptions, sacks and fumbles.
I feel the best defenses to play this week are the Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers. The Texans play the Colts Thursday night. The Texans are the second best defensive team against the run in Fantasy Football, so don’t expect Donald Brown to have the kind ..click here to read more

Ah, late November football is here! The smell of Turkey, the gathering of family and friends, and of course some of the biggest fantasy games of the season. Yes it may all seem like cheer and thoughts of what we are most thankful for, but behind it all is the stress and strain of crunch time in fantasy leagues worldwide. Well I will take this time to wish all of you a happy holiday, and give you some advice on who to start this week, and who, well may just want to sit and enjoy the meal instead of playing.
I understand full well how many band-aids we are all putting on our teams. Big injuries have plagued many of us, and it is taking luck and being quick on the draw for pick-ups to save the ..click here to read more

Happy Halloween fantasy fans and friends. Mid-fall is here, the chill in the air, and the fun of dressing up in costumes to do the trick-or-treat thing. We all love a good dress up and a nice chance at make believe, kind of like the way we have all been dressing up our fantasy teams the last few weeks.
Yes even scarier than ghost and goblins has been the severe rash of injuries that has hit the NFL teams and is killing most fantasy teams. In a quick look at the list of players down or possibly down we see names that have been reliable such as Willis McGahee of Denver, Jahvid Best of Detroit, Tim Hightower of Washington, Earnest Graham of Tampa and now the likes of Darren McFadden in Oakland and Mark Ingram in New ..click here to read more

Here we go again fantasy football owners. The time to get cute is over, as is the waiting game for players to bust out. Even though you may be trying with all your might to root for your 3rd round pick, if he is not panning out, it is time to give him the bench. Yes we sit here at week 6, which in most fantasy leagues is the half-way point.
I totally understand that it is tough to just plug in people and hope for big time points, but some free agent players or later round picks are finding the end zone. With each year that passes more and more obscure players are stealing action from the top guys, you just have to know how to deal with this.
So for week 6 I came up with who I like and ..click here to read more

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 4 in the National Football League!
- How warm is that hot seat in Philly right now? The self proclaimed “dream team” now falls to 1-4 on the season and the Eagles are one more straight loss away from crisis time in Philadelphia to hit. If the Eagles lose three more games at all for the rest of the season, making a grand total of seven losses, they will need a miracle to then make the playoffs. Nobody saw this team performance the way they have so far this season.
- The Buffalo Bills are the most surprising 4-1 team in the NFL and had they played well against a not so good Bengals team last week they would be one of the surprising unbeatens. That is ..click here to read more
