Super Bowl XLVI: Where Ankles Go To Heal

February 3rd, 2012 Author: Son Categories: NFL

The last time we had a Super Bowl rematch, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Buffalo Bills in their second consecutive meeting: there was a Democrat in the White House; Nancy Kerrigan, Tonya Harding, Jeff Gillooly, and Lorena Bobbitt were household names; Kurt Cobain sought his nirvana; Richard Nixon and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis passed away; North Korea’s President Kim II-sung died and was succeeded by his son Kim Jong-il; Jerry Jones had more plastic in his wallet than his face; O.J. Simpson single-handedly destroyed the market value of the Ford Bronco; and Deion Sanders violated the contrast settings of televisions everywhere.

NFL 2011 Week 4: What Happened To All the Running Backs?

Three 3-0 teams remain heading into week 4: the Green Bay Packers, the Detroit Lions, and the Buffalo Bills. Instead of the ghosts of Ahman Green, Barry Sanders, or Thurman Thomas leading the defending champs and two perpetual losing franchises, however, the undefeateds are led by slingin’ quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and Ryan Fitzpatrick. Last week, the usually pass-happy Packers managed to get a decent ground game from RB Ryan Grant for 92 yards on 17 carries. Yet his backup only mustered 5 yards on 11 carries while the Packers held the Chicago Bears to 2 yards on NINE carries by RB Matt Forte! Meanwhile, the feel-good Lions fed RB Jahvid Best 12 times for a fantasy football embarrassing (if you’re not in a PPR league) 14 yards.

NFL 2011 Week 3

September 25th, 2011 Author: Son Categories: NFL

Pressed for time last week (and this week, but that doesn’t stop my perpetual procrastination!), so last weeks picks are post-dated. If anyone wonders about the legitimacy of these picks, I can’t do anything for you. Enjoy the random picture instead!

NFL 2011 Week 2: Six Things I Learned About Week 1

Week One in the NFL started out with a bang, and provided numerous highlight reels and entertaining story lines for the early season. Both familiar faces and new faces dominated the box scores that left me wondering how players like Beanie Wells and Tim Hightower still have starring roles on certain teams. Their fleeting Week One production will tease most people into believing the best but I pessimistically expect the status quo as the year wears on.

Of course since it’s only one week, we should expect an overreaction to the Pittsburgh Steeler’s shellacking in week one, the Dallas Cowboys’ late game choke job, and the Philadelphia Eagles’ dominance. That being said, you should really overreact to the Indianapolis Colts’ huge loss to the Houston Texans because that team is finished faster than Ortiz’s 2nd apology attempt to Mayweather.

NFL Week I Kickoff Preview: More Picks Than the Season Stat Lines of NFC West Quarterbacks

Finally. Unless your name is Peyton Williams Manning, like me, you are ready for the start of NFL football today and the subsequent weekend. It’s hard to pretend that football is anything more than grown men violently hugging each other. Yet on any given autumn Sunday, the escape from reality for a few hours is a worthwhile obsession. Life’s tough enough as it is, and the only thing I want to see tougher is Dallas’s 3-4 base, 46 nickel defense.

So with further ado, I have made some BOLD season picks that would make Bill Belichick blush. Speaking of which, considering Peyton Manning’s indefinite absence, Tom Brady is definitely in the minority in terms of quality quarterbacks on the field this season. A reasonable person might agree that Brady, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers are the only active elite QBs left standing at the start of the new season. The next tier would consist of in no particular order: Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Schaub, Philip Rivers, Tony Romo, Michael Vick, and Matt Ryan. There are certainly young up and comers like Josh Freeman, Sam Bradford, and Matthew Stafford, but overall the league is lacking in decent signal-callers.
