Yes, all this and more in this clip from the color commentator as the New England Patriots shocked the Saints. http://soundcloud.com/airchecked/tom-brady-to-kenbrell I’d say that’s a lot of color for a commentator. Unicorns!
There are many ways to predict the outcome of an NFL game. Some sites bring out the animal mascots or flip coins. Some dig through the numbers. Some claim to be gut-instinct experts. So when we looked at how we might predict the winner of this year’s Super Bowl, we thought why not look to…… Continue reading Astrological Super Bowl Predictions: Who’s Dancing in the Bayou?
If I’m going to say Rob Gronkowski might not be all Yo Soy Fiesta in New England, I should probably explain where I expect those points to go. And besides the obvious choice in Brandon Lloyd, there’s another tight end in New England who had a not-too-shabby year in 2011. For some reason, ESPN has…… Continue reading The Case for Aaron Hernandez as a Sleeper Tight End
Those of you who follow me on Twitter have probably seen my running commentary on all of the ESPN Fantasy Football Roundtable discussions.

Is Twilight still a thing?…… Continue reading This Kevin Smith is not Too Fat to Fly in Week 12 Pickups
It’s getting to be that time. The fantasy playoffs are near. Records are shaking out. If you’re set to make a deep playoff run, you should be reshaping your team to play it’s best fantasy football in Weeks 14-16. Of course, that’s assuming you’re all playing championship games in Week 16, which is the only…… Continue reading Moore to live for in Week 11 Pickups
The first few days of NFL free agency are like sitting in Santa’s lap. You can ask for anything you want with the assumption that you’ll get it. And I do that every year. Ask for things in free agency, that is. Not sit in Santa’s lap. Since the NFL left us cold and alone…… Continue reading 5 Player Moves the NFL Owes Fantasy Football (And Me)
Week 6 dropped a few gifts into our lap as a result of recent injuries and trades, which comes at a very opportune time in the midst of bye weeks I normally do a little digging on players I list on the waiver wire in order to assess their potential. Sometimes I share a little…… Continue reading On the Waiver Wire: Week 7 Pickups and Who is Danario Alexander?
Get this: ESPN Fantasy Football has Rex Ryan’s favorite Little F-er Danny Woodhead classified as a wide receiver for the entire year because he started the season as a wide receiver on the Jets’ practice squad. I neglected to mention Woodhead in the waiver wire recs this week because he’s on a bye, and well,…… Continue reading That Little F-er Danny Woodhead plays WR on ESPN
