Rodgers wins Player of the Week honor

GREEN BAY, Wis. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers struggled a bit in his team's 1-2 start to the season, but when he regained his 2011 form in Week 4 against the Saints, the NFL was quick to take note. On Wednesday, the league honored Rodgers, last season's MVP, as the NFC Offensive Player of the Peek. In leading the Packers to a 28-27 win at Lambeau Field, Rodgers...

Aaron Rodgers likes the idea of dressing up as a pirate

Over the weekend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was poked in the eye by Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins but ended up being okay. During his weekly radio show on ESPN 540 Wisconsin, Rodgers decided to joke about the incident and talk his love of dressing up as a pirate: You know, I have always enjoyed dressing up like a pirate, wearing an eye patch I think would be...

Tom Brady Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, Ties Peyton Manning's Record Mark

Tom Brady was Tom Brady on Sunday. That's enough to be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. Brady's big performance against the Bills on Sunday netted him the honor for the 21st time, which ties Peyton Manning's mark for the most Player of the Week awards earned by a player since the accolade was instituted in 1984. Brady was in vintage form while dominating Buffalo...

Rodgers poked in eye, Harrell fumbles in debut

GREEN BAY, Wis. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers figured that it wouldn't be a problem if he sat out for one play after getting poked in the right eye midway through the third quarter Sunday against the Saints. In Rodgers' mind, with the ball at the two yard line on first down, backup quarterback Graham Harrell should be able to successfully finish off the drive with a...

Tom Brady tells Buffalo and the haters to screw off

(via Deadspin) This was after Brady’s run into the end-zone to tie the game so we have to wonder who he was saying ” ‘eff off” to. Was it the Buffalo fans who were saying mean things about his wife and mommy? Was it the CBS and NFL crews who were questioning the Patriots and their young team? Was it Josh McDaniels who Brady got into a minor war of words with during the second...

Brees: Payton, Vitt part of team accomplishment

Drew Brees said Thursday he wasn't looking for added motivation for his 0-4 Saints team when he requested that General Manager Mickey Loomis and coaches Sean Payton and Joe Vitt be allowed to attend Sunday's game with the San Diego Chargers. Payton, Loomis and Vitt are currently suspended for their roles in the bounty scandal, but Brees asked NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell...

There Is Somthing Special About the Matt Ryan/Roddy White Combination

The Falcons moved up in the 2011 NFL Draft and traded a bunch of picks for Alabama's Julio Jones. It was a move that was done by the organization to become more "explosive". Julio is definitely an elite talent and his time will come but right now it's Roddy White that is making the difference with Matt Ryan. In his first four games, White already has two...

Vince Wilfork Believes Peyton Manning is in League With Tom Brady and Phillip Rivers as Most Competitive Quarterbacks (Video)

Peyton Manning has been known as a hard worker his entire NFL career, and Vince Wilfork understands how much work the four-time MVP puts in. Just like his own quarterback, Tom Brady. That's why Wilfork and the Patriots' defense are studying up as much as ever this week, as they prepare for Manning and the Broncos to visit Gillette Stadium on Sunday. "Once again it'...

You Make Your Own Luck: Patriots 52, Bills 28

There were time yesterday, where I felt like I had stumbled into some alternate universe.  The Patriots were trailing 21-7 in the second half to the Bills and inching dangerously close to a 1-3 record, which would have essentially put them three games behind the Bills with tie-breakers in the race for the AFC crown.  At that point, we had already witnessed a fumble by Gronkowski...

After Week 4, New England Patriots: “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.”

The New England Patriots are now 2-2 with a 52-28 blowout victory over the Buffalo Bills. But with such an uneven start to the season, Patriots fans are left scratching their heads wondering which Pats team is going to show up each week. Here is a breakdown: The Good: After their first three games, having their first losing record since 2003, the Patriots had something to prove....

NFL Best Bets: Week 5 – 2012

I’m going to admit upfront, if you’re using our picks as a basis for gambling on games so far this season, you’re making a big mistake. I’ve been a disaster and that continued into week four, as my 1-3 took me to 4-12 for the season. Tony has been better, but not good. His 3-1 brought him to 8-8 for the year. I feel a turnaround coming sometime soon here, but you’ve been...
