It’s another rough week in Harmonville. I’ve been floating in the .500 world. This week rolled badly. Game Spread Straight Up Against The Spread Cincinnati at Miami CIN –2.5 CIN CIN Kansas City at Buffalo KC -3.5 KC KC San Diego at Washington WAS -.5 WAS WAS New Orleans at New York Jets NO -5.5 [...]
Nobody banged the drum harder and louder for rising star Dennis Pitta of the Ravens. He was a leading red zone target for Joe Flacco last year (the other, Anquan Boldin, is off to San Francisco) and caught 75 passes between the regular season and Baltimore’s charge to the Super Bowl (14 receptions, including three [...]
Consider this the teaser for the greatness to come as SwollenDome.com begins to ponder the 2013 NFL season. Below, I roll out the preliminary quarterback rankings for standard leagues. At the end of June, I will release a comprehensive fantasy football draft guide, replete with player profiles, team analysis, schedule reviews and countless performance breakdowns. [...]
I do regular radio spots in Baltimore, and we’ve long talked about Jim Johnson’s ability to close out games for the Orioles without possessing a dominant strikeout punch. Johnson’s strikeout rate has improved markedly in 2013, but his hit rate has also soared. In his past three appearances (all blown saves), the Baltimore closer has [...]
On Wednesday, Harmon joined “Zinno & Haynie” to chat about the NFL, including the latest news and notes around the league. Listen to Harmon on “Zinno & Haynie”.
Why is Jim Johnson the “Fantasy Man-Crush” of the week? OK. I suppose I could just trot out the entire Baltimore squad or give an “Attaboy!” to Buck Schowalter following his 1,000th career win. Maybe I celebrate Chris Davis for ending a terrible day at the plate (0-for-8 with five strikeouts) with a win on [...]
Looking for an answer to the uneven and stomach-turning efforts from Week 7 of the NFL season. Mike Harmon joined 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore with Bob Haynie and Rob Long. He just might have an answer or two.
Locked, loaded and ready to discuss Week 3 of the NFL and the close-out of the 2011 MLB season. Mike Harmon joins Rob Long and Bob Haynie on Baltimore’s 105.7 The Fan. Mike Harmon on The Fan 105.7 in Baltimore
For the past 7-10 days, there had trades rumors connecting Lee Evans to a number of teams. The sudden depth in the Buffalo receiving corps made Evans expendable. And frankly, it’s a fantastic thing for Evans and now for the Ravens, who dealt for the deep threat on Friday morning in exchange for a fourth-round [...]
The Ravens saw the clock expire, putting Kansas City on the clock. More to come …
At No. 25, Seattle drafted an offensive lineman, James Carpenter, out of Alabama. He stands nearly 6-foot-5 and weighs 320 pounds. He played at left tackle and has the physicality to slow down the bull rush off of the edge and the beef to get the ground game rolling. Does this mean that Matt Hasselbeck [...]
Harmon steps behind the mic to roll through a 15-minute recap of Wild Card weekend. Did your picks blow up, too? We just went through four games that gave us myriad storylines on Saturday and Sunday AND set up more than a few for the divisional round. Recaps of the game and more of the [...]
The Panthers stopped the speculation about the status of free agent-to-be DeAngelo Williams. On Wednesday, the bruised and battered Panthers placed Williams on injured reserve. Will he return? Jonathan Stewart and Tyrell Sutton did not practice Wednesday, thereby leaving Week 10 sleeper special Mike Goodson in the driver’s seat … against Haloti Ngata, Terrence Cody [...]
