NFL Week 2 Thoughts & Recap – Inside The Wheelhouse


gostowskiLet’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 2 in the National Football League!

– So it looks like Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall’s trash talking motivated the Packers defense. I wonder if the Packers defense will now turn the corner from their 2011 ways and look more like the 2010 defense that helped them win a Super Bowl.

– Jay Cutler is one of the most overrated Quarterbacks in the NFL and he clearly showed it this past Thursday night. He entered the game “talking the talk” and left the game “limping the limp.” If you want to talk like a top notch QB then you need to play like one.

- Buffalo carried over that 2nd half against the New York Jets into their game with the Kansas City Chiefs with a good bounce back victory here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Top 20 Fantasy Football 2012 Quarterback Rankings


Drew Brees & Aaron RodgersWelcome back seekers of knowledge and those who are just totally freaking out about who to take when for your upcoming Fantasy draft. I have already brought you the Top 20 Running Backs for 2012, and now we look at a position that gets to be more and more important every year, the quarterback! Yes the NFL has become a pass-happy league, so it has become essential to get a top signal caller early on and not settle for a guy who can get you average numbers.

As I have always said, the league is always changing, and every few years something new comes into the mix. Where teams were using 3 running back systems and going all screen pass happy just a few years ago, now it is all downfield, and teams like the here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Fantasy Football 2012 Sleepers: Quarterbacks


Blaine GabbertIf there is one intangible that repeats every season in fantasy football it is value. Successful fantasy players are usually those who generally got the best value out of their draft picks. That is what makes sleepers so key, especially at what has become the most important position in the game.

Just a few years ago fantasy football was about the running back. The strategy was to take an RB with your first, second, and maybe even your third pick. Thanks to committees and a shift in the passing game, those honors have gone to the quarterback. In just a few years the quarterback has become the most important position in my opinion in fantasy football.

Having a great QB in your lineup can be the difference in the 10 or 15 points that win or lose your games. It doesn’t take here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Fantasy Football 2012 Sleepers: The Comeback


reggie wayne fantasy footballThe 2012 fantasy football is full of former early-round busts. Yet many of these busts are poised for big comebacks. Here are just a few former fantasy boom to bust sleepers that have the potential to bring you back major value in your fantasy football season.

Everyone loves a good comeback right? The NFL is full of comeback players and these comeback players generally turn into fantasy football sleepers in the preseason. For one reason or another, these are players that are coming off of highly disappointing seasons. Tarnished as frauds, these players didn’t just lose their talent overnight. You need to look hard at their situation last season and evaluate all circumstances surrounding the poor production. That time spent analyzing last year’s busts could bring you the highest rewards this season.

The NFL & The City Of Angels: The Battle For Los Angeles


Roger GoodellAppropriately, the city with the recycled-plastic conveyor belt that pumps out our movies and television shows would be the second largest television market in America. With 5.7 million households wired for everything from local news to late-night “As Seen on TV” infomercial murk, Los Angeles, California accounts for five percent of America’s home media spectatorship.

Only New York has a larger piece of the ‘idiot box’ pie (6.5%); only seven other metro areas can claim more than two percent each (Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, California’s Bay Area, Boston, Atlanta, and Washington, DC).

Those nine cities are represented by ten different NFL franchises, and yet one city listed has no team to call their own.

By now, you’ve heard that particular song, as well as its hook-wielding chorus. Since 1995, when Los Angeles lost both its NFL franchises, the Raiders and the Rams, many have here to read more , , , ,

Not-So-Top 10 Worst Super Bowl Games


Super Bowl XXYou prepped so very hard. You got your party favors, your wings, pizza, beer, snacks and on and on. The hours of preparation and hard work seem to be just the beginning of a fun-filled football evening, full of excitement and cheer, big plays and the 2 best teams letting it all hang out. Sadly, it turns into card games, girl talk and soggy left overs sometimes, when one of these 2 great teams kind of leaves the “A-Game” at home, and we are stuck watching a dud.

Sure, over the last few years we have had some excellent games, and as we look ahead to this year’s Super Bowl XLVI match-up between the AFC’s New England Patriots and the NFC’s New York Giants, chances are we will see another good one. We also have to be ready for here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

2011 Fantasy Football All Waiver Wire Team


The 2011 fantasy football season may go down as one of the least predictable years ever. Looking back at this crazy year, most fantasy drafts ended up being busts.

The so called fantasy football experts got most of it wrong missing out on guys like Cam Newton and over valuing players like Felix Jones. Interestingly enough you had a better chance building your championship team this year through the waiver wire than the draft.

Playing the fantasy football waiver wire is a tricky game. It requires patience, foresight, and the ability to look at a player’s situation objectively. Remember, any starting quarterback or running back can look like a monster for one week in the right situation. Having the ability to see through that and find that diamond in the ruff that will shine for an entire season is a talent all in itself.

The season may not be over yet but I here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Week 14 Thoughts – Inside The Wheelhouse


Todd Haley firedLet’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 14 in the National Football League!

– The win may have not looked pretty against a below average team in Cleveland but a win is a win and the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to roll as we are now three weeks away from the playoffs beginning. It hasn’t looked pretty in the process nor dominating but the Steelers have now rolled off 8 wins in their last 9 games making them the hottest team in the NFL sans the Green Bay Packers. This team looks to taking a slight edge as a potential AFC favorite as we get closer to the playoffs.

– Whether or not Peyton Hillis returns to the Cleveland Browns won’t be their biggest off-season storyline yet whether or not Colt McCoy is here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Week 12 Thoughts – Inside The Wheelhouse


Stevie Johnson Plaxico Burress TDLet’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 12 in the National Football League!

– Green Bay improves to 11-0 on the season after a pretty big win against the Detroit Lions. Many people the Lions were the team to beat and this was the game to do it this season. The Lions still have one more chance to knock off Green Bay this season but they can’t let their emotions get to them like they did in this one.

– The Lions defense plays extremely dirty. Case in point, the Suh stomp on Thanksgiving; a very costly immature play for the youngster but he will definitely learn & bounce back from this one.

– Miami is becoming one of the best pesky teams to watch play these last couple here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 12 Pickups


Kevin Smith, Waiver WireFantasy Football owners in need of a running back or quarterback may be in a lot of luck this week. Searching for help on the waiver wire in Fantasy Football Week 12 is never easy. However, a few injuries have presented owners with some rare opportunities this late in the season.


Jake Locker, Tennessee Titans - Take a look around the NFL this season and check out Cam Newton and Christian Ponder. Rookies can play in the NFL (well not if you are on the Jacksonville Jaguars). Locker was a hell of a quarterback in college and may wind up turning into the next Aaron Rodgers or Peyton Manning if the Titans can surround him with the right talent. He stepped in Sunday and threw for 140 and two TDs. Not bad for a guy that has here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
