Denver mayor adds injury to insult

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

There are many candidates for biggest chump in Denver this week following the Broncos' unbelievable playoff meltdown against the Ravens. Foremost is safety Rahim Moore, who forgot he was supposed to stay behind Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, then made a pathetic attempt at intercepting Joe Flacco's 70-yard bomb to Jones ...

NFL things we learned this weekend

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Excitement was nearly non-existent in this year's NFL Wild Card round, which featured four fairly dull games. Even the expected awesome showdown between rookie sensations Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson turned out to be a dud when we ended up with half a RG3 in the second half. However, an ...

Boners Burn Harbaugh Brothers

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

On Sept. 23, 1908 Fred Merkle became the first athlete to achieve national infamy for a gaffe that ultimately cost his team a shot at a championship. Merkle's Boner, as they called it back then, has been joined by dozens of choke-jobs in the century following — two of which came ...

The NFL’s Real Feel-Good Story

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

You just haven't heard all that much about him. No, really. You haven't. Because ...

Sunday's most stunning NFL development is not that Kyle Orton and the Chiefs beat the previously unbeaten Packers, nor that Dan Orlovsky and the previously winless Colts derailed Tennessee's playoff hopes. It's not even that the Bears thought there was a chance Caleb Hanie could pass off as a competent ...

Todd Collins: NFL Quarterback?

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

The Internet was on fire the past two days with everyone's take on whether or not Jay Cutler pussed out on Sunday. Whatever. I'm over it. His teammates are rather adamant that he didn't bail on them, and this story is already played out. The thing that blows my mind, and ...

Bears vs. Packers: The End Times Are Near

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Last week, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs opined that the Ravens-Steelers Divisional Playoff matchup would be "Armageddon," and he wasn't making reference to Steve Buscemi asteroid movies. But with all due respect to Mr. Suggs, Ravens-Steelers is the Falkland Islands War compared to what is about to go down on the plains ...
