This Given Sunday:
It's at this time of the year that we normally begin to watch some of those pleasant surprise teams begin to fade, leaving one or two classic Cinderella stories by season's end. Most of the time, we see these late season let downs coming from miles off, but there are always a few cases that still shock and surprise us years later. That's what this list is all about. We're looking for the all-time greatest late season let downs in NFL history. Shall we begin?
5: 1998 Pittsburgh Steelers
Best Record: 7-4 | Finished: 7-9

4: 2008 New York Jets
Best Record: 8-3 | Finished: 9-7

Again it’s Aaron Rodgers vs. Brett Favre.Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel came out yesterday with an interesting piece comparing Aaron Rodgers’ current run as the Packers starting quarterback with a streak that Brett Favre put together between 1995-96.Silverstein dug into the record books to find that over the course of 16 games both quarterbacks put up numbers...
Tyler Juranovich, our resident Bears fan here at MSF, is currently writing a post entitled Jay Cutler’s Injury is the Worse Thing to Happen to Chicago Since the White Sox Won the World Series.
Since I’m the editor, I can see this, be insulted by it, and then give in to my immature side and quickly churn out a post to make what is a bad morning for he and Bears fans even worse...
I was wondering when Corso was going to go completely senile and start muttering inappropriate things on TV.
I'm just glad there WASN'T a delay:
Of course, this nearly blew up the internet to smithereens. Robert Flores may have said it best:
Lee Corso doing his best to blow up twitter. It's as if Tim Tebow won the Super Bowl. Throwing to Terrell Owens...
