Most people carry around inanimate objects as good luck charms. Things like a lucky rabbit’s foot, four leaf clover, or even wear a pair of underwear that seems to add an extra bit of fortune to their life. One NFL team can now say they have themselves a lucky kick returner. Denver Bronco rookie … Continue reading »
BEST OF MAXIM
Peyton Manning vs. Adrian Peterson: two historic seasons, one MVP. Scott Kacsmar puts voters to task with an in-depth review of the seasons and why MVP voting results (1986-2011) say you have to take the QB.
WHO SHOULD WIN IT?
Aaron Rodgers has won NFL MVP during his career. He weighed in with his selection for this season's MVP, and it might surprise you.
Peyton Manning will have to wait until next season to face the Indianapolis Colts.
His old team lost 24-9 at Baltimore in the AFC wild-card game Sunday. So the Ravens (11-6) will visit Denver next weekend to face the Broncos (13-3), the AFC's top seed.
Had the Colts won, there would have been a circus-like atmosphere all week in Denver in anticipation of the reunion between...
John Elway insisted that every one of the Denver Broncos was better the second Peyton Manning put his signature on that nearly $100 million contract last spring.
Indeed, all have prospered from the arrival of the meticulous quarterback whose work ethic generated, as coach John Fox also predicted, a lifting of all boats.
While Manning was turning what began as a season of mystery...
At the conclusion of the 2012 NFL regular season, schedules for the 2013 NFL season are known for the various teams of each conference. Exact dates and times of the schedule will not be released until sometime in April but home and away matchups are already known. The NFL schedule makers like to place popular teams and favorable matchups in prime time slots. Now that we have seen...
It’s 2006 again. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning appear to be on a crash course. Both quarterbacked arguably the best teams in the league (the Broncos and Patriots ranked 2nd and 3rd in the NFL in DVOA, but I don’t trust #1 Seattle on the road). Both are MVP candidates. Peyton Manning is currently viewed as the favorite, but I think that’s both undeserved and beneficial to the...
I’d like to start this off by saying the argument that Matt Ryan can’t go deep into the playoffs because he’s never won a playoff game is ridiculous. Peyton Manning was once 0-3 in the playoffs and he went on to win a Super Bowl. Plus, two of Ryan’s playoff losses came against eventual Super Bowl Champs. Finally, it’s just 3 games. It doesn’t really mean much. However...
The AFC Playoff Picture
The stage is set and the teams are locked in. Just like the good ‘ol days, Brady & Manning are resting up for divisional round match-ups at home next week. Who the future Hall-of-Famers square off against will be more clear following the first AFC Wild Card match-up:
(6) Cincinnati Bengals @ (3) Houston Texans – 01/05 – 4:30 – NBC
The 2012 NCAA Football season was an exciting one for Notre Dame and Irish fans. Living in Indianapolis, I can say that it’s been an exciting year. Super Bowl back in February, Colts lose Peyton Manning and gain Andrew Luck, Colts have a surprisingly good season at 11-5, Indiana Hoosiers basketball is back up in [...]The post BCS National Championship Game Prediction appeared first...
Florida International has hired former Illinois coach Ron Turner to take over its football program.
FIU director of sports and entertainment Pete Garcia says Turner signed a five-year contract Thursday night, with a base salary of $500,000 annually. A news conference with Turner was being scheduled for Friday afternoon.
Turner replaces Mario Cristobal, who was fired last month...
