Don’t forget about Randall Cobb

Randall Cobb suffered a fractured fibula Oct. 13. He is scheduled to return in Week 15. Lost in the chatter about the world’s most famous collarbone. Forgotten after the defense allowed the Lions to convert 9 of 12 third downs and the Bears to roll up 442 total yards — with a quarterback no less.

Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers: 2013 Week 14 NFL Pick

Atlanta Falcons (3-9) at Green Bay Packers (5-6-1) There’s a pretty powerful trend that says when two teams who are about to undergo a scheduling dynamic change (from dog to favorite or favorite to dog) play each other, the dog covers more often than not. The favorite is distracted by their upcoming game as underdogs, while the underdog has no distractions coming up considering...

Jury Still Out On Flynn

After two games, I’m still not sure whether Matt Flynn should be Aaron Rodgers’ understudy next season.
