The MVP Elimination Game

When was the last time there was a truly wide open MVP race? Most awards are decided nearly unanimously. Peyton Manning last year, Aaron Rodgers in 2011, Tom Brady in 2010 and 2007, and so on. Occasionally, we’ll get a close race, but it’ll be between only two players, like in 2012 between Manning and Adrian Peterson, or Shaun Alexander’s win over Manning in 2005. The last...

Do the Detroit Lions have the best running back tandem in the NFL?

You may have heard recently that running backs are getting devalued in the National Football League. Considering that Maurice Jones-Drew could only get three million a year in the offseason that’s probably true, but that doesn’t necessarily make it smart. Even as teams get more and more pass heavy, the playoffs consistently prove that teams with good running games have a leg...

Upset Picks for Week 3 of the NFL Season

We didn’t necessarily perform too well with our upset picks last week, going 0-3 after a solid 3-1 performance to open the season. It didn’t help that our article was published mere hours before the Adrian Peterson news. But I digress. Week 3 offers up a nice slate of action with some division rivals going up against one another in early-season impact games. There will also be...

5 Must Watch Head-to-Head Match Ups in NFL Week 3

courtesy: Fox Sports The first two weeks of NFL action are in the books, and everything that’s happened on the field seems almost irrelevant at this point.

Let’s get that trend started now...

Winning next week will heal all wounds for the Seattle Seahawks

The 2014 Seattle Seahawks are many things. They are remarkably talented and deep; their defense continues to defy the best efforts of the league office to ensure every team in the NFL fields a 300-yard-per-week passing game. They are all but invincible at home at Fortress 12th Man.  They are also 1-1 after two weeks. The harsh reality of the NFL is this: you are only as good as...

Sunday wrap: Chargers knock the Seahawks off their pedestal

The talk was, and will be, about Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy and other unfortunate situations.

But out on the West Coast, it was about an outstanding football game played by a very good team. And that team was...

8 Injuries That Would Derail the NFL Season

There are many factors to include when looking at the most valuable players in the National Football League. For example, just because Adrian Peterson might be one of the best all-around players in the NFL, it doesn’t make him one of the most valuable. In order for that to be the case, a player must play on a contending team. At least, that’s one of the factors I take into account...
