Here are the Top 15 fantasy football wide receivers for wildcard weekend. 1. A.J.

Who to root for? An unaffiliated fan declares playoff allegiances

Why not? Well, here we are again. A Jets fan with nothing to cheer for as the NFL postseason begins (well, maybe at least one thing but more on that later). Although there is much to complain about in Jetland, our non-playoff “plight” is not one deserving of remorse. Gang Green nation is only a few seasons removed from back-to-back AFC Championship game appearances. So, despite...

Reaction to another Bengals playoff loss

I tend to be the level headed Bengals fan. I see you on twitter, on almost every bad play there is the barrage of tweets calling for so and so to be fired, or so and so to be cut.

Thanks For Nothing, Bengals

Cincinnati has been in the playoffs four times in the past eight years. Why does that sound wrong? Why does that not command more respect? Possibly because each of those four times, the Bengals have swiftly exited via an unwatchable loss. The best you can say about this one is at least it wasn’t by multiple scores, which was the case with the previous three. The Texans were practically...
