Now that Peyton Manning is “gone fishing”, KJ is sad and frustrated. He recaps his picks from last weekend and may start telling people that he doesn’t follow sports.
GG and KJ both went 3-1 in their predictions last week. They’ll try to duplicate that as they preview the NFL’s divisional weekend playoff slate.
For a guy who says he’s pop culture deficient, KJ is pretty up on pop culture. Find where Gangnam Style, and other phenomena, landed on his Best of 2012 list.
The Indianapolis Colts are surprising football fans this season, thanks to a hotshot rookie QB and a show of strength for their coach.
Photo via Bleacher Report There are 32 teams in the NFL. And by my count, there are at least 11 teams that have a chance to win the Super Bowl. Now, I don’t study the NFL for a living or crunch the numbers on a daily basis, but I’ve seen my fair share of quality football and have a pretty good feeling about this season. Heading into week 11 and based on what I’ve seen, here are the 11 teams [...]
DISCLAIMER: I have a Man Crush on Peyton Manning. I own two of his Colts jerseys (the Broncos one is currently being saved up for), a Colts hat and a sweet Colts helmet that my brother made for me out of metal. I love his commercials. I love the way he messes with the defense (except that pesky Falcons D from Week 2). I love that he’s all business and doesn’t showboat after one of his 400-plus touchdown passes. DISCLAIMER [...]
K-Daddy brings us his NFL preview. Better late than never.
The current saga of Peyton Manning, the surefire Hall of Fame quarterback who’s planning to continue his playing career despite a serious neck injury, certainly resonates with fans of the NHL. Not so much the specific injury, but the situation. When is the right time for an athlete to retire? The NHL has seen several versions of this scenario play out in recent years. Most notably, the case of Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby, the league’s best player, who has been out [...]
The NFL absolutely doesn’t make sense sometimes. A team can underachieve all season long, then play the best team in football and look like world beater. After being one of last year’s upstarts, the Chiefs have looked at times like one of the worst teams in football. But they have enough wins after beating Green Bay, that they still have a prayer of a shot at the playoffs, according to Peter King . And this is after getting rid of their head coach the [...]
Before I get to the nuts and bolts of yesterday’s games, I wanted to lead with something that’s not necessarily about football, but I will tie it into football at the end. This week’s 10 Yard Fight is dedicated to my Uncle Dave. For the last seven Septembers, my rather large family has gathered together at my Uncle Dave’s favorite beach to celebrate his birthday. On the drive home from the beach yesterday, JJ, my youngest son asked me if [...]
I think Thursday’s opening night shootout between the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints affirmed three things for us: Because of the lockout, veteran teams that didn’t change head coaches and didn’t have a lot of player turnover are going to do very well this season. The Packers don’t have a Super Bowl hangover and could have one of the best offensive years in recent memory. Red zone offense is where it’s at. The Packers were 4-4 in red [...]
The 2011 NFL season is nearly upon us. I do that Sweet Chin Muzak baseball column on this great website, so I figured that a NFL column was a natural progression. The column will be published on Sunday night/Monday morning and will discuss ten of the ongoings of the Sunday games. There will also be a heavy Fantasy Football slant to the column since I love me some Fantasy Football almost as much as Terrell “I love me some me” Owens loves himself. [...]
