MVP: Peyton Manning – Denver Broncos Tom Brady, Aaron Rogers, and Adrian Peterson are all quality candidates, but Manning proved his worth this year. He came back from neck surgery and went to a new team that was treating him like a god which put a lot of pressure on him to help the Broncos have a winning season. Manning was learning a new playbook and also incorporated some of his plays into the offense and had to make sure the team got in sync. It started off a bit rocky, but Manning, the offense, and the Broncos tenacious defense have clinched the AFC West and are looking to have a first round bye in the playoffs. Not bad for a guy who is coming off an injury and started playing for a new team. Offensive Player of the Year:  Calvi...

Let me be the first one to tell you that as much as I try and keep up, I’m not usually a trendy person.  If you took a look at my CD collection, you wouldn’t notice many new artists.  In fact, me saying I have a CD collection already proves just how untrendy I am.  Get with the digital world, Sky!  Well, there are certain trends I do pay attention to and it’s how players...

Roethlisberger Apologizes for Speaking the Truth

Peyton Manning once ripped his ‘idiot kicker’ on national television and I don’t recall him apologizing to the Colts’ organization over it. He also ripped his offensive line a couple of times following tough losses and while he apologized to them privately, he did not do so publicly to them or his organization. Broncos’ legend John Elway used to tear into his receivers...

Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions: Week 16 NFL Pick

Atlanta Falcons (12-2) Detroit Lions (4-10) Normally I like going against huge line movements because I hate week to week overreactions. This line was Atlanta -1 last week and now it’s at -4.5, skipping over two key numbers of 3 and 4. At first glance, this appears warranted. The Lions got blown out by the crappy Cardinals in Arizona, losing 38-10, while the Falcons got a huge...

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer The best spies in the NFL these days aren't behind enemy lines but on the quarterback's own side of the ball. Every game, two of his interior offensive linemen are miked up for network TV, bringing the sounds of the game to millions of viewers - and future opponents - who hear the quarterback'...
