Entering the last week of the season I'm sitting at 153-87. That's ok but not great. I'd like to be over 170 for the season, but it is what it is at this point. Let's finish strong.
With teams resting players and teams out, I'll also take a look at the postseason and offseason for the teams in addition to my picks.
Tampa Bay at Atlanta - A game where one team has everything locked up and another team is out of the playoffs is tough to pick.
The Bucs are a young team with a good core on offense. They need to bring in some more pieces on defense to keep getting better. I like where they are going.
The Falcons are headed to the playoffs and have the #1 seed. Everyone, including me, have been asking what the Falcons can do in the postseason. A running game and good defense are key to consistent play in the postseason. Turner is a little older but Rodgers adds a nice change of pace for him. This is a complete team but we all want to see them do ...

I thought guard Evan Mathis and kicker Alex Henery might have avoided the shutout... But no, not unless they get into the Pro Bowl as alternates.
It's no big whoop as far as the actual NFC vs. AFC All-Star Game in Hawaii goes. I don't even watch the game. I just watch the pregame features, maybe catch an isolated series of plays if our guys are involved.
But I can...
The rumors surrounding Chip Kelly becoming the next Eagles head coach are starting to heat up. Should Eagles fans be ecstatic about Kelly as the next Eagles head coach or should they be irate? First you have to fully understand what Kelly would bring to an NFL team.
Kelly’s offense, especially when he adapts it to the NFL, will not be so simplistic that it has to be run be...
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that an NFL source has informed him that Eagles QB Michael Vick is not willing to renegotiate his contract to remain with the team beyond the 2012 season.
It’s widely expected that the Eagles will cut Vick loose in the coming weeks, but there’s still a chance that they could approach him about possibly restructuring his current...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is not willing to renegotiate his contract, which pays him $15.5 million next season, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Friday. The Inquirer cited a "source familiar with Vick's thinking" but Vick would not publicly comment. Vick is under contract through 2015 but the team is unlikely to keep Vick for $15.5 million next...
Andy Reid has been fired by nearly everyone except the man in charge.
It's a foregone conclusion in Philadelphia and around the NFL that Reid will coach his last game with the Eagles on Sunday at the New York Giants. Fans already have a wish list for a new coach and the media has speculated for months about Reid's successor.
But owner Jeffrey Lurie has said nothing. Lurie...
NewsTags: Brandon GrahamDanny WatkinsFletcher CoxJoe BannerAccording to a person close to the Eagles, there’s a big difference between the Eagles brain trust which orchestrated the Birds 2012 draft, as compared to the group which navigated the 2010 and 2011 draft. Yes, Andy Reid was the Eagles head coach during all of those drafts...
“From each one according to his ability. To each one according to his need,” is one of the tenets of socialism. Of course, most Americans don’t know that because most Americans know nothing about socialism, and think it’s the same exact thing as Communism. You can thank Ronald Reagan and his propaganda campaigns against socialized medicine for that.
It’s amazing that so...
In the coming days it’s expected that longtime Eagles head coach Andy Reid will get the boot after completing yet another disappointing season. And one would think given all the hardships Reid has endured on and off the field (especially with his family) he (Reid) would welcome a year off to perhaps collect himself and [...]
THE ANSWER was the same from Nick Foles on Wednesday as it had been on Sunday. That was when Foles clasped his throwing hand behind his back and told reporters it was sore, but the hand had nothing to do with him bouncing a throw to a wide-open Jeremy Maclin during the final sequence of the Eagles' 27-20 loss to the visiting Washington Redskins.
"I don't think it...
It is only the matter of a few more days before the expected firing of head coach Andy Reid from the Philadelphia Eagles. Reid is currently the longest tenured head coach in the NFL, a streak which will end in about 72 hours or so. Reid will land a job with any team he wants after his release. He’s a good coach but a change is needed in Philadelphia where the organization needs...
Per a report from Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, citing the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will not be will be willing to renegotiate his contract in order to remain with the team. It may be Vick’s intention to force a release since he is due $15.5 million, a number that is highly doubtful the Eagles would pay him. Although it is unlikely any other...
The New York Giants will host the Philadelphia Eagles in what is the epitome of a "must-win" game for Big Blue.The Eagles broke their losing streak a couple of weeks ago against Tampa Bay, but have since lost two in a row dropping to a disappointing 4-11.The Giants haven't done much better these last two weeks, but they are still no doubt in Playoff contention. The...
As the Philadelphia Eagles prepare for their last game of the 2012 season, a look at headlines about their final opponent, the New York Giants. As New York no longer has a chance of winning the NFC East, playoff scenarios abound.
If the Giants defeat the Eagles on Sunday (boo!), it is p9ossible that they can still win a spot in the playoffs. But they will need a whole lot of help...
