“Offense wins games; defense wins championships.”Whether or not that’s how the phrase originally went is moot. Unless you’re the 1999 St. Louis Rams, simply outscoring the opponent with nothing but copious offensive firepower just doesn’t cut it. Many a quarterback with a 40 TD/8 INT season has been sniped in the playoff thicket by sharpshooter corners and artillery linemen.Ask Aaron Rodgers last year, he’ll tell you all about it.Grant you, of the last ten Super Bowl champions, nine of them had either a guaranteed future Hall of Famer, (The Manning Brothers, Roethlisberger, Rodgers, Brees, and Brady). In the case of Tampa Bay in 2002, they had an efficient journeyman in Brad Johnson who just didn’t make mistakes.But in just about all of those cases, those quarterbacks could rely on a defense that would not only kill the opposing quarterback, but would give up such little ground to the opponent that victory was much more assured.There are three measurements that define a quality defe...

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers should have put Sunday’s game against the Colts away at the end of the first half.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers gets annoyed when people ask him about not having many fourth quarter comeback wins on his resume. Rodgers usually points out that he’s won a lot of games in the second and third quarter, making any type of late comeback unnecessary...
Eli Manning, winner of two of Super Bowls in the last five years, including, two super bowl MVP’s and his last name is Manning. Crazy how quick times change, last year Eli Manning’s name would have never came up in a discussion of élite QB’s in the game. One “decent” year and a team that [...]
Yes, the New York Giants beat Trent Richardson and the Cleveland Browns in what turned out to be sort of a blowout yesterday, a 41-27 victory that featured great games from Ahmad Bradshaw, Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Reuben Randle. And sure, it elevates the team into a tie with the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East division lead. But let's be honest, the Giants have beaten...
Last season, the Green Bay Packers followed up their improbable Super Bowl run to close out 2010 with a 15-1 regular season record. As a team, the Packers seemed on top of the world; they were unstoppable. But with one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history, the Packers opportunistic defense has been less than desirable; an Achilles heel so to speak that cost the Packers...
Eli Manning has shown the New York Giants can score with anybody.
It's the defending Super Bowl champions' defense that is playing catch-up heading into Sunday's NFL championship rematch against the San Francisco 49ers (4-1).
Perry Fewell's unit has been very inconsistent.
Take Sunday's 41-27 win over the Cleveland Browns. The defense allowed touchdowns on...

In this blog, I will not be discussing all 32 teams and their situations. What will be discussed are several general observations that I have made over the course of the first four games. I will talk about specific players and teams, but I won't cover every one. I will even talk about how the press, especially ESPN, has handled certain matters.
There’s nothing worse than missing a game where the Green Bay Packers lose. Yes, it saves some heartache and keeps the remote control from flying across the room, but it’s disheartening to know that, when I go back and watch it, I’m only going to be disappointed. The one silver lining, however, is that the emotion has taken its course, and I can look at things a little more...
The Packers must find the quickest route to get back on their winning ways
In most any situation in life, be it a movie, fight, game, etc., there is a turning point. At five games into this season and with two tough road games coming up, the Green Bay Packers face just that. Some may say it’s too early to see it that way, but this sport is about momentum and the Pack need...
Denver Broncos (2-2) at New England Patriots (2-2)
We were without it for a year, but NFL fans will get to see Brady/Manning once again this year, their 13th meeting. What Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees have done over the past few years is very impressive, but no one compares to Brady and Manning when you look at the last 10 years or so as a whole. This is one of the greatest rivalries...
Colts Authority Daily Links
Evan Hilbert of CBSSports.com has a nice preview for this week's matchup against Green Bay. This week, like many prognosticators, he is predicting a Packers victory and notes that the Colts' defense is banged up, and, well Aaron Rodgers. The Colts also need to stop Cedric Benson:
The Colts' defense has been suspect against the run, at...
Philly Sports World Fantasy Week 5The game of the week pick I picked the Giants to roll over the Cleveland Browns, we got this right minus the first half as the Giants spotted the Browns a lead. Solid pick as the Browns remain winless and I IMPROVE to 3-2 on the season.Stud picks from week 5: Eli Manning’s three touchdown passes a solid fantasy game, if you also had Cruz you...
