The Awesome Boston:
A.B. Growing up as a sports fan in America, I find it impossible not to gamble on games. And while I wouldn’t bet an NHL or MLB game to save my life, something about betting on the NFL just soothes the soul. Watching Thursday night football without money on the line doesn’t interest me, unless the Patriots are playing. But put $50 on the over of a game between the Browns & Jaguars and I’m jumping around the living room & screaming at the TV like a mad man. When done responsibly, it’s good old fashioned fun (regardless of my fiance and dog looking at me like I’m possessed).
So with all of that being said, I feel like this year the NFL is killing me! Peyton Manning comes back to erase a 24 point deficit on the road against the Chargers?!? How is anyone supposed to make money on that? Not only did I lose my overall bet on the Chargers to win the game, I lost double when I added to the bet for the Chargers to continue their dominance at the half. Stupid me? I say, stupid NFL!

The Chargers were embarrassed by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos with an historic comeback after the Chargers led 24-0 at half and went on to lose 35-24. Well, apparently the embarrassment turned to anger and restlessness, which is hardly unexpected of any fanbase after a collapse like that. Chargers P.R. director Bill Johnston took to the team’s website with a post entitled...
We are nearly two weeks away from the NFL’s halfway mark.
There have already been several teams and players that have certainly turned in disappointing returns based on what we knew of them or what was expected of them.
Certain situations such as the Dallas Cowboys were not included because they are expected to let their fans down. Therefore, being a disappointment is not disappointing...
1) Peyton Manning: Manning is looking for his fifth MVP award this season, and he's off to a great start once again, despite Denver's struggles to keep pace with top-tier teams in the league. The Broncos currently rank 4th in passing yards per game, up from 31st a season ago under Tim Tebow. To cap it all off, Manning trails only Aaron Rodgers in touchdown passes at 14 this...
It's bound to happen, the naming of children after professional athletes.
Grantland writer and Red Sox enthusiast Bill Simmons just about named his child after Josh Beckett, something he said he was thankful didn't happen after this season. Plenty of other fans have cheered a hero in a moment of athletic dominance, then praised the player -- or tried to...
It’s been a long day. Sorry everything is late.
Yeah… the NHL is never coming back.
Peyton Manning can’t get on Facebook.
This is why you never bet against an SEC team. Even if they are playing an SEC team.

It's a passing league - no secret to anyone. But the Broncos may have been onto something last year. While teams shift to passing offenses, the Broncos could have doubled down on being a power run team and been competitive. Defenses are being built to stop passing attacks, not the University of Nebraska rushing attack of the 80s. While I think some team will eventually...
When you write sports at a website like WFNY for a while you get to know your own kinds of fans. As many of you know my house is divided from a football perspective because my wife grew up in Indianapolis. I spared you my wife being on the podcast, but my brother-in-law is very much a similar kind of football fan to what I think we cater to at WFNY, so I talked to him for about ten...
Good old Mike Chappell of The Indianapolis Star delves into the difficulties and benefits of entrusting the offense to a rookie quarterback.
While his completion percentage seems out of character, that's not necessarily the case. In his final two seasons at Stanford, Luck completed 70.7 and 71.3 percent of his passes. But he was a 56.3 passer in his first year as a starter...
