Forgive me for the punny title. I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend, and I think I’m still operating on Oakland time. But that said…don’t you want four time slots of NFL football EVERY Sunday? Personally, I loved being able to go straight into another one after Sunday Night Football wrapped up, even…… Continue reading Week 6 Pickups: Are you Keenan on these Chargers?
So Deion Branch is now a Patriot? That’s exciting for Bill Belichick and all — that man knows how to swing a three-way trade while moving up in the draft.

Time. I didn’t even need to drink coffee this morning. I’d already run out of walls. (Okay, that’s…… Continue reading Week 9 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Any Given Sunday
