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?
Baseball stole our Sunday Night Football. How is that fair? Give it back, World Series. I demand it. I’m fine with baseball as long as I don’t have to sit through an entire game. In my opinion, it should be played in highlight form, jumping to the major parts and leaving out all the rest.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Marc Bulger and Sunday Night Sadness
After going through the “pick or pass” of the average draft positions for running backs and wide receivers, we come to the next position on many draft boards, tight end. While there’s a top tier of elite options, the tight end position is pretty deep this year. Players that didn’t even make this list could…… Continue reading Fantasy Draft Day Pick or Pass: Top 12 Tight Ends by ADP
Is Matt Ryan really all he’s cracked up to be this season? I wasn’t much of a believer in the 2008 class of NFL quarterbacks.

It’s a debate that rages in my leagues just as the first league emails start to go out. The date of the draft hasn’t even been decided. The chips and beverages of choice are still safely on store shelves, but the league emails begin with the eternal debate: “Why don’t we change the waiver wire…… Continue reading To Waiver Wire or Not to Waiver Wire?
DeAngelo Williams and Michael Turner exploded out of their draft stock in 2008, much to the chagrin of the owners who didn’t draft them. Freed of DeShaun Foster, Williams still wasn’t supposed to put up enough of a fight to keep rookie running back Jonathan Stewart on the bench. Opposing defenses should have swamped Turner,…… Continue reading DeAngelo Williams vs Michael Turner: Truth or Fiction
Unlike me, you may not have been following all the NFL news since the offseason began. Sometimes people have lives. That’s okay — so I am told. In order for you to keep your edge and get in the right state of mind now that football is only a few months away, you just might…… Continue reading How about that Rundown: Things you should have known before the 2009 NFL Draft
First of all, why are you guys still having your championship in Week 17? That’s like playing a game of chess for hours only to bring in toddlers to play out the final three moves. Why would you do that? And where did you get chess-playing toddlers? This week, I absolutely love everyone involved with…… Continue reading Week 17 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Championship Edition?
It’s craziness in Week 17. Will the playoff teams even bother to start their studs? Will the backups be decent when they get in there? We can attempt to negotiate through the darkness of the last week of the season, but in reality, we’ll just be happy to be at .500 for the season with…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 17
