BEST OF MAXIM
I have just one hope: that none of you had Doug Martin on the bench last week.
I had Martin ranked 9th, which, come to find out, was just a bit low. His 251 rushing yards and four touchdowns vaulted him to the number one spot in the running back rankings.
Fear the Muscle Hamster.
Obviously, Martin can’t duplicate his monster performance this week against San Diego, but the moral...
For those that are looking at the Atlanta Falcons as a team that is looking too far ahead towards a perfect season, fear not.

Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan threw for a season-high 411 yards and had his fifth three-touchdown game this season Sunday against the Saints.Fantasy Spin:Atlanta lost for the first time this season but Ryan turned in one of his best fantasy performances of the season. The Falcons QB has 20 touchdown passes and is averaging 307.9 yards per game through nine contests.
The '72 Dolphins. Almost the '07 Patriots. Perfection is, and will always be, a headline in the sports world, due to its rarity.For the Atlanta Falcons, currently 8-0, perfection remains an option. But nothing is guaranteed. Last season, the 13-0 Green Bay Packers got clipped by the 5-8 Kansas City Chiefs, when freshly-interim coach Romeo Crennel neutralized Aaron Rodgers...
In what has been considered to be a southern classic rivalry, the (3-5) New Orleans Saints host the (8-0) Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon, at 1 p.m. on Fox television. This matchup will be filled with a lot of emotion, due to the Saint’s bounty scandaling season while the Atlanta Falcons have truly rised up to the occasion
On the strength of MVP candidate Matt Ryan and a defense that bends but rarely breaks, the Falcons currently stand as the league's only undefeated team.
At 8-0, Atlanta will put their streak to the test against the division-rival and suddenly resurgent Saints on Sunday. If they do get their ninth victory, could the Falcons run the table all the way to 16-0?
Could this be 'The Year of the Falcons'? If Atlanta does go on to defeat Baltimore (my pre-season Super Bowl pick, just FYI) in early February and capture the Super Bowl XLVII Championship, then this game will likely be but a distant, fading memory.However, if the Falcons have become so demoralized from the 31-27 loss to the Saints, that they cannot win another game, that...
Before beginning his interview with the media on Friday, Chandler Jones had one question for reporters.
''Do I have anything on my face,'' New England's defensive end said with a grin while staring into a sea of cameras and microphones focused solely on him. ''I appreciate it, guys.''
The Patriots certainly are grateful for everything they'...
Within two days of one another the Atlanta Falcons brought in Mike Nolan to run the defense and Dirk Koetter on the offensive side. I set out to write an article on the top 10 impact players new to their respective teams this season; either via trade, free agency, or the draft. The process got old, quickly, though. The truth is, there have been many… but, my telling you that...
Patriots rookie DE Chandler Jones is leading a charmed life in New England. The young defender has been key to New England's revitalized pass rush.
