OK. So I took a hit on Thursday night with the Patriots – as many prognosticators did. So, let’s rally. Here’s my Week 1 Picks Against The Spread.
You made it. Congratulations. Our long run without regular season football and the national angst over the continued dominance of the Patriots … is over. The 2017 NFL season kicks off later tonight with Brady and Gronk and the high-octane Patriots (no Edelman or Mitchell) facing off against Alex Smith, Tyreek Hill and the Chiefs. […]

As Jason Smith and I settled in to our normal routine of vetting stories for our Monday show, we rolled through a number of audio pieces (gold, really) and kept our eyes fixed on the Rodgers-Wentz Monday Night Football battle. Rodgers made several throws that silenced, if only momentarily, all critics as the Packers stopped […]
Yes. Tom Brady returns to the field following a questionable (to my eyes, anyway) suspension. Yes, Rob Gronkowski is ready (we think) to quiet the supermarket gawkers. Week 5 of the NFL season began with the Drew Stanton-led Cardinals beating the 49ers. Following the game, details started to emerge about a possible restructuring of Colin […]
Week 4 of this NFL season brings a number of wrinkles. First, the dreaded Bye weeks begin and blow holes in our lineups. That’s right. You already need to account for the losses of Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson this week. Sure, you lose Carson Wentz and Jordan Matthews, but this would have been the […]
I’ll ponder life on a grander level here as the weekend approaches (Friday practice notes will shuffle a number of things), but I felt compelled to get rankings up quickly ahead of the Texans-Patriots battle. Jacoby Brissett is the man of the hour, and he’ll have Rob Gronkowski at the ready. Check out the early […]
It’s the beautiful time of year. College football begins in earnest this weekend, and we’re just one week away from the first of 256 regular season NFL games. OK, you can lop off the final 16 games for fantasy purposes. When we are referencing Major League Baseball, we joke about the fact that “hope springs […]
The first weekend of the NFL preseason was greeted with great passion, energy and trepidation. It didn’t matter that the top stars would play a series or two before stepping to the sidelines for the night. No, fans lined up in droves to cheer the return of football and to evaluate young talent. Rookie quarterbacks […]
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, […]
My head is spinning. I just can’t believe that Week 13 of this NFL season is already upon us. I found a cafe to work up some numbers ahead of the week and lingered as drunken revelers strolled down the street. The people-watching was absolutely fantastic. My hope had been to sleep a little later […]

The NFL kicked off the 2013 season with a high-scoring, wild affair in Denver. Peyton Manning posted a game for the ages, ripping apart a tired and over-matched Baltimore defense. The game played even for a half prior to Michael Oher’s injury, and the surgeon-like Manning went to work. Naturally, Harmon was quick to reach […]
Harmon completed a huge feat this past week, driving all around the West coast to visit training camps in San Diego, Santa Clara (49ers), Glendale and Oxnard. That’s a lot of driving, coffee and time alone on the open road. To finish up Sunday’s visit to Oxnard and the Dallas Cowboys, Harmon got a chance […]
