What does having an MVP quarterback get you? For the Saints and Packers, not much. That's the case after the Saints and Packers were both stunned over the weekend with losses to the 49ers and Giants, respectively. The season for either Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers, though, isn't yet over, as one of the two quarterbacks will almost assuredly be named league MVP during Super Bowl week. It will be a tremendous honor for whichever player receives the award, but it will no doubt be a bittersweet consolation to football's ultimate prize. In any other year, Tom Brady, a man...

Tom Brady Punt Leads To Brawl Between Broncos And Patriots (Video)

The New England Patriots had a 35-7 lead at halftime of yesterday's game against the Denver Broncos. The Patriots pulled back in the second half on the way to a 45-10 victory.

Rodgers has made fans say "Brett Who?''

Aaron Rodgers just won't do it. It didn't matter that there were at least 50 reporters and camera people jockeying for position in front of his cubicle in the Packers' locker room this past week. He refused all attempts by the public relations staff to move his weekly news conference to the spacious auditorium across the hall.

Belichick And Brady: Back In Business

After losing their past three playoff games, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady came back with a vengeance tonight. The New England Patriots completely dismantled Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos 45-10 at Gillette Stadium. The only time this game was even close was at the beginning of the second quarter, when the Broncos cut the lead to 14-7 on a Willis McGahee five-yard run following...

Giants vs Packers Rematch: Three Reasons Why the Giants Will Win in Green Bay

In this NFC Division Round game between the Giants and the Packers, the Giants are considered to be the heavy underdogs against a Packers team that went 15-1 this past season. They will face off on Sunday at 4:30 PM EST.

Packers Chick Blames Sparkles On Her Nails For Green Bay Loss

Pull yourself together, Double Chin. If anyone should be pissed that the Packers were knocked out in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, it should be this guy who spent $250 on Packers stock so I’d be legitimately on the bandwagon. You…are just ridiculous thinking that those sparkles on your nails cost the Packers a trip to the NFC Championship. (If this is fake, this is...

Tim Tebow and Tom Brady

I imagine that many people last night were checking the Bible for the appropriate Bible quote based upon the score change (guilty as charged) and I think funny enough a proper quotation was found at the end of the game. Last week Tim Tebow had 316 yards passing and everyone immediately seized on John 3:16. Last night Tebow finished with 136 yards passing and John 1:26 seems fitting...

Indianapolis Colts Making Major Changes

Just two weeks after Jim Irsay fired Bill & Chris Polian, the announcement was made today that they have also relieved head coach Jim Caldwell from his duties. Not sure if many saw this as a surprise since the Colts are coming off of a 2-14 season. Many expected there to be a lot of changes for this organization going into the 2012 season. A lot of the Colts demise happened...
