Why Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo should be this year’s NFL MVP

It’s no secret that I have been a Tony Romo supporter. I’ve made the case multiple times that he is much better than he’s been given credit for and absolutely one of the top ten quarterbacks in the league. But this year, I believe he has been the NFL’s best quarterback, despite the great seasons by Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. It’s why I believe he should...

The Browns quest for “the answer” at QB is the wrong one

The Cleveland Browns are constantly looking for “the answer” at quarterback, but it seems more and more that they’re asking the wrong question. The question they keep asking is how do you come up with Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers—hell, even Ben Roethlisberger or Joe Flacco? The Browns seem to operate as if they’re primary mission in life is to land some Holy...

Brady: Edelman might be Pat's Most Dependable Player

  Tom Brady can’t say enough good things about Julian Edelman. The relationship between the New England Patriots quarterback and wide receiver has only strengthened over their time together, and it’s clear Brady has unlimited trust in Edelman. Maybe that’s why it should be no surprise the Patriots struggled offensively without Edelman in the lineup Sunday before holding...

Rex Ryan: We’re The Team That Gives Tom Brady ‘The Biggest Challenge’

Rex Ryan is going out talking. Everyone assumes the New York Jets head coach will soon be the ex-head coach soon, but Ryan isn’t changing his ways before leaving. That includes dialing up a mean game plan for Tom Brady and then letting everyone know about it. Ryan and his Jets defense did a solid job Sunday in slowing down Brady, limiting the quarterback...

WATCH: New York Jets Destroy Patriots QB Tom Brady With Big Sack

The New York Jets were expected to lose to the New England Patriots Sunday and they did. They were suppose to be a push over though and they were far from being one. In what could be one of his final weeks as the head coach of the Jets Rex Ryan had his team pumped up and ready to play and they did. Geno Smith didn't suck and the defense--well, the defense was relentless in attacking...

Patriots Escape from the Meadowlands With the Victory

Going into this divisional match up, most of Patriots Nation expected a tight battle like always from the Jets. Nevertheless, I don't think most fans expected it to be as close as it was, seeing how the Patriots were trailing for a good portion of the day. The common Patriots fan will come out of this one with mostly negative thoughts, as they should because there were a lot of points...

Patriots offense is sluggish but still gets the job done

Photo by Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images) That game was ugly. There's no sugarcoating it. The Patriots played pretty well defensively, epitomizing Bill Belicheck's "Bend, Don't Break" signature and kept the Jets kicking field goals for the most part (3 FG's, 1 TD). The offense looked pretty sluggish, though. I think most of us expected the Jets to give us all we could handle early on...
