Aaron Rodgers Is Currently The Best Quarterback In The NFL

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

I'm going to preface this post by saying I'm not a Green Bay Packers fan. I have no allegiance to the team whatsoever. After the first four games of this season, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has proven himself to be the best signal-caller in the NFL. After a Sunday whipping of the ...

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 ...

Fantasy Football Sink Or Swim: Week 1

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Ah, TheBaker's fantasy football expertise. It's a Rumors and Rants' tradition. OK, so I didn't win the league last year. I inexplicably finished second (in a 12-team league) despite having a loaded roster. But that's how it goes in head-to-head leagues. Sometimes you put up 58 points when 80 is ...

Tony Romo or…Aaron Rodgers?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Rodgers and Favre: The Early Returns Are Quite Good

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Here's a thought that hasn't gotten a whole lot of traction in the whole Brett Favre-Packers-Aaron Rodgers fiasco: Maybe the situation will work out well for both teams. Huh. Seems kind of nice. Both quarterbacks acquitted themselves well in their regular season debuts. Favre led the Jets to a win and ...

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 ...

We Can’t Wait For The Fall

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

While the summer is great and all, it kind of sucks on the sports front. Everything slows down to a crawl with the lengthy basketball playoffs and the slow-paced trudge that are the dog days of the baseball season. But just around the bend is what likely comprises the greatest ...
