Fantasy Football Sink Or Swim: Week 2

Friday, September 18th, 2009

OK, so my Week 1 forecast was a bit of a mixed bag. I had low expectations for Santonio Holmes and he basically pulled his pants down and showed me how wrong I was. But come on, Santiono and his snake, only had one 100-yard receiving game all last year. How ...

So, What Went Wrong?

Monday, January 5th, 2009

After what was arguably the most interesting final Sunday in NFL history -- The Big Lead at least had a premonition of this awesomeness, but it played out far wackier than any of us could have anticipated -- and a fairly decent Wild Card weekend, we're down the final eight playoff contestants. ...

The NFC North: Somebody’s Gotta Win the Thing, Right?

Mr. Rodgers, Lead Us Away from the Drama and Into the Light

Monday, September 8th, 2008

It's been a long, long offseason for all those associated with the Green Bay Packers. You might have heard about a guy named Brett Favre. But let's not rehash. Some of us are still bitter. Season openers, after all, are about new beginnings. And no, Roy Munson, that's not the new ...
