The 256-game marathon to the NFL Playoffs finally concluded last weekend with a wild, though familiar, ending in Dallas.

For most members of the Fantasy Football universe, the regular season came to an end in conjunction with the closing of Candlestick Park. The late interception return by NaVarro Bowman for a touchdown surely changed outcomes in a large number of leagues. The game-ending interception from Matt Ryan sent an unfortunate few to an untimely, [...]

Harmon’s Podcast 7.23 puts him back behind the microphone to discuss the Ryan Braun suspension and the state of Major League Baseball. Results can be achieved through better chemistry and, let’s face it, there’s a ridiculous financial incentive to discover the next great thing. But, Major League Baseball will not be deterred. The question of [...]

With training camp just days away, it’s time to roll out the first-look rankings. Adjustments will be made as we get reports out of camp and those peripheral contributors come into focus. At the top of the list, there aren’t many surprises or shuffles to ruffle any feathers. Sure, we can flip Drew Brees and [...]

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported earlier on Wednesday that the Packers signed their powerhouse tight end to a two-year deal. Finley’s deal will reportedly pay out $14-15 million, and much of it is being front-loaded. On a grand scale, it’s a huge win for Finley, who will next hit free agency at 26 years old. [...]

The 2011 NFL Draft gets underway in a mere seven hours, whetting the appetites of fans worldwide. A report released Thursday morning indicated that the league’s year — i.e., the start of business activity, including free agency – would begin on Monday following the draft weekend.

Rodgers took care of business in the Wild Card round in defeating the Eagles. He dominated the Falcons in the divisional round to set up Round III of the NFC North battle with the Bears. Rodgers passed for 366 yards with three touchdowns and added a rushing touchdown in the 48-21 blowout win over Atlanta. [...]

A tired Harmon (no, he was not out running around until late, he did the dream in a dream in a dream nonsense of “Inception”) previews tonight’s Falcons-Packers game. Is Eric Weems the wild card again? Will the Packers commit to the power running game and James Starks for the second straight week? Harmon Minute: [...]

We already know that Antonio Gates isn’t going to be cleared for the final two weeks and may not be available during the playoffs. Troy Polamalu will not be available for Thursday against Carolina, and he may not return until the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers and Adrian Peterson are back at practice. MJD missed Thursday’s workout, [...]

It’s only appropriate that my mind drifts to the famous NFL Films “The Autumn Wind” clip (see it here ) as news begins to circulate about the possibility of Mike Leach sailing his pirate ship to Maryland. That battle cry is also playing loudly as the Raiders get set for a Week 15 battle against [...]

The 2009 NFL season provided more than a few chills, spills and thrills along the way. We entered the year with grand expectations at tailback, and conventional wisdom kept the draft board running back-heavy in the opening rounds. That age-old strategy just might fall to the wayside in 2010 given the number of pass-happy attacks [...]
