Brown and Rice’s claims of Super Bowl sabotage absurd

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

As we've seen in the last month in the wake of certain traumatic national events, it's not too hard to get a conspiracy theory going. But these theories are generally easy to laugh off because they are started by anonymous idiots whose parents should have stuck to masturbation. But this week ...

Raiders defense continues putrid play

Monday, November 12th, 2012

They say Al Davis is dead, but from the looks of it he's been playing Bernie Lomax-style on the Raiders defense the past two weeks. (If you think that's a low blow, Raider Nation, at least I'm not running fake field goals against you when I'm up 24 points in ...

Is 2009 The Worst NFL Season Of All-Time?

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

The NFL is bigger and more popular than ever. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the league is better. There appears to be a large number of just awful teams this season. I’m talking absolutely putrid. Like teams you know are going to lose all week long. My roommate relayed a conversation he had ...

TheBaker’s Dozen: Favre, Swine Flu And Sonya Blade

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

1. I hate Brett Favre. I used to have an adversarial respect for him, being a Bears fan and all, but now this is just getting ridiculous. Talk about an attention whore. Oh, and Jay Glazer just bodyslammed the ESPN weasel trio of Schefter-Mortensen-Clayton at the same time, by not ...

TheBaker’s NFL Preview: Oakland Raiders

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Four coaches in four years. Four quarterbacks in four years. An average of just under four wins a season during that four-year stretch. That's not the type of forward movement Al Davis and Oakland Raiders fans are looking for.  Davis used to make the Raiders relevant. Now, he's made them inconsequential. But it's not ...

Darrius Heyward-Bey Is Doing Just Great

Monday, May 11th, 2009

When the Oakland Raiders selected wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey with the No. 7 pick in the NFL Draft, pretty much everybody on the planet's reaction was: What the f*ck? Heyward-Bey was listed as a late first round pick by virutally everyone, and with Michael Crabtree still on the board, no ...

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. ...

Tuesday Evening Punter: Week 4.5

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Last week was a bye for the Tuesday Afternoon/Evening/Whatever time of day I get around to writing this item Punter. It is our sincere hope that you noticed. Anyhow, before starting the Week 4.5 Report, here are some "I told you so's" from Week 2.5. Because I don't get to brag ...
