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

Monday, November 17th, 2008

One look at the standings in the NFC North will tell you a lot. There's a three-way tie between the Packers, Bears and Vikings atop the division at a very mediocre 5-5. Oh, and then there's the Lions in the cellar at 0-10. Let's not forget about our friends from ...

NFL Quarterbacks are No Longer Football Players

Friday, September 19th, 2008

The last time we checked, and this was in youth football in sixth grade, football is a physical, aggressive game. It's a game where brute force is king. That's why Americans love it. But after reading that Packers middle linebacker Nick Barnett has been fined $7,500 by the league for a ...

Tony Romo or…Aaron Rodgers?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Picture this, if you will: it's late August, and, like many of you, I'm sweating out my fantasy draft. I picked 12th in the first round, so it's not like I was getting one of the top guys (I ended up with Clinton Portis), but I was cautiously optimistic. When ...

Ari Fleishcer to the Rescue!

Monday, August 4th, 2008

As has been extolled in the blogosphere, on ESPN and pretty much everywhere, the Brett Favre saga is dragging on endlessly. I'm not even going to bother linking to any old posts. You know the damn story. We found out Sunday that NFL commish Roger Goodell officially reinstated Mr. Wisconsin and ...

The National Drama Continues: Brett Speaks

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

On a regular sports news day, I would totally avoid this story, for reasons I've already explained in this Internet space. But, alas, we're on the All-Star break and there's not much to talk about.I even considered posting about NASCAR. Yes, NASCAR.Anywho, Brett Favre came out and told his side ...
