LAST WEEK: 6-8 SEASON: 55-36 (60%)  Def. The Seahawks are coming off a huge win against the Pats and the 49ers are coming off a really rough loss to the Giants, but San Francisco's defense is just too good to lose to Russell Wilson no matter how good the Seattle defense plays. Def. Both of these teams were big underdogs in their wins last week, but Tennessee's win could easily be attributed to all of Pittsburgh's injuries. The Bills have a lot more riding on this game and with home field advantage on their side, I think they come away with the win. Def. The Browns finally won their first game of the season, but I wouldn't predict any road wins for them just yet. I trust Andrew Luck at home, but the Colts defense needs to have a big bounce back game against another mediocre offense. Def. The Giants are rolling right now. All their players are healthy and everything is working as pla...

Russell Wilson Dazzles vs. Patriots

Seahawks rookie Russell Wilson had his best game of the season Sunday against the Patriots, throwing for 293 yards and three touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Wilson came into Sunday's matchup having thrown five interceptions in his last two games. Sunday he only committed one turnover and that came on a lost fumble. Wilson probably won't be as effective when he faces the 49ers'...

Sidney Rice Throws Mouthpiece After Russell Wilson's Poor Play

The Seattle Seahawks offense once again couldn't get off the ground and Sidney Rice didn't hold back on his frustration with quarterback Russell Wilson. In the third quarter, Rice threw his mouthpiece in disgust after Wilson tossed an interception with Seattle still in the game. (Since it won't let me put the GIF on this post, here is the link) The Seahawks only lost...

Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers: Three Bold Predictions

Before the season began this looked like it may be a Thursday night match-up that would go fairly unnoticed. Now, almost to the half-way point of the season, this contest between both 4-2 squads looks like it will have major implications.  Implications that go beyond who wins the division and who goes to the playoffs.  Rather, a match-up that may determine who the next dominant...

Thursday Night Fantasy Football Pick-Up and Start, Week 7

The Thursday Night games have been pretty boring this year, with few reasons to watch other than fantasy and gambling implications. This week might be the exception, as the Seahawks travel to face the 49ers.  Every week I'm profiling one sparsely-owned player from Thursday's game that you can (notice I'm not saying should) pick up and start. Ya know, get your...

Seahawks-49ers Live Blog, First Half

One of the best match-ups of the week on Thursday night. How nice to put that at a time when players only have three days rest. I’ve said elsewhere that it was the rampant Peter King fluffing that turned me against Russell Wilson. I know that’s not really a fair thing to hold against someone. Wilson is just being himself. If he happens to charm some reporters who skew their coverage...

2012 NFL Scouting: Week 6 in Review

We predicted that week six could hold some big surprises, and it certainly did.

Did you miss some big performances amidst all the weekend's action? Two Rookies Take Big Steps Just a couple...

Best NFL Rookies Week 6

QB: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks: Wilson added another impressive victory to his resume, as he completed a 46-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice with just 1:18 on the clock to take down Tom Brady and the Patriots. The rookie out of Wisconsin now has wins over Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers*, Tony Romo, and Cam Newton, not bad for only having played six games. Both Todd McShay and Mel...

Wilson, Jones lead RB pickups

Fantasy owners face a big challenge in Week 7 with a whopping six teams on bye (Atlanta, Denver, Kansas City, Miami, Philadelphia and San Diego). This means several owners will be scrambling to the waiver wire, and in most standard 10- or 12-team leagues owners must dig a little deeper than normal. While waiver adds are usually specific to team needs, there are a couple of running...

Seattle's surprising win over the New England Patriots left the Seahawks at 4-2 and tied with the 49ers at the top of the suddenly formidable NFC West.  Meanwhile, New England, a heavy favorite to win its tenth division title in the last 12 years, finds itself unexpectedly in a four-way tie atop the AFC East.  Here's what we learned:1.

Thursday Night Pick: Seahawks vs. 49ers

What a wild week it was in Week 6. Tons of upsets and a very good week for the dogs. I just took Ravens (-3) as my top play and missed on by a point when the Cowboys scored a touchdown in the last two minutes when the Ravens were holding an 8-point lead. The most significant upset last week was the Seahawks topping the Patriots in Seattle after scoring a TD in the last two minutes...
