It’s that time of the week again. Week 8 of the 2013 NFL season begins on Thursday night with a clash between the Panthers and Buccaneers. I know. It’s hard to get excited about this primetime game following the debacle that was the Giants-Vikings on Monday night. But you have Cam Newton. You have Steve [...]

Later this year, the Channel 4 news team will reassemble to bring hilarity to the big screen. Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner return for “Anchorman 2.” Expectations are obviously high, and I’ll likely be the dude first in line yelling, “That’s how I roll.” In the interim, you can whet your [...]

What happens when the owner of a team speaks out about his former quarterback’s time in town? Well, when it’s Jim Irsay being quoted about future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, people are going to sit up and take notice. They’re going to read between the lines and parse every word for a hidden meaning [...]

Week 7 kicks off Thursday night with the Cardinals hosting the Seahawks in a NFC West matchup. I’m not looking for a huge total here (Nevada has it at 40 1/2), but I do believe Seattle gets it done both SU and ATS (-4 1/2). You’re looking at a disruptive secondary making things difficult for [...]

Fantasy owners have hit the tipping point of the 2013 season. The trade winds are blowing hard, the waiver wire is churning at a rapid pace and fantasy owners are making difficult decisions about struggling stars. Add the miserable run of injuries and those pesky Bye weeks to the mix and you have a recipe [...]

The games of Week 5 brought us a fresh batch of angst, injuries and curious performances. We watched a masterpiece from Peyton Manning and Tony Romo in Dallas. Tom Brady saw his touchdown streak fall to the wayside in a weather-impacted game against the Bengals (what are they?). Of course, the Texans, Chargers and Falcons [...]

Remember, the Vikings, Steelers, Redskins and Buccaneers take their Bye this week. Last week was a mess in terms of “Straight Up” selections. As I went to click “Submit” and noticed I’d made an inordinately large number of road selections, there was a sinking feeling. That occurred well in advance of the Thursday Night Football [...]

The first four weeks of the NFL season are in the books. Some owners rolled to dramatic comebacks on the arm of Drew Brees or Jimmy Graham’s touchdown dunks. Some (maybe me) weren’t as lucky, absorbing narrow defeats with Mike Wallace’s smallish stat line and a missed 43-yard field goal from Garrett Hartley playing a [...]

I’m going against the prevailing sentiment that the arrival of “The Raider Rusher” was a bad idea. The NFL helped produce a cartoon. They wanted to bring their players and the league to children. There had to be a line of toys and elements to be sold, right? Hell, I’ve seen team-licensed ZOMBIE figures in [...]

The Chiefs took care of business in Week 3 as the defense tormented Michael Vick all night and limited DeSean Jackson’s ability to make plays downfield (three receptions for 62 yards). Still, I have to look at the other side of the game and circle a huge issue in the Kansas City offense. It’s possible [...]

I always preach patience in fantasyland. The knee-jerk reactions of fantasy owners to slow starts or muted single performances leave you with whiplash. Where possible, you keep a bench slot available to rotate out emerging players, stash a flier running back or pick up that spot-play defense. But, I’m already seeing huge churn on the [...]

It’s been a wild couple of weeks, and I’ve thankfully held my own. The record is 16-16 ATS with a 24-8 log straight up. This week, we have a number of home underdogs and point spreads on both ends of the spectrum. Anybody rolling Seattle giving nearly three touchdowns? Can Trent Richardson’s acquisition help fuel [...]

Last week, Anquan Boldin dominated the Packers and piled up targets and receptions. Boldin was virtually erased from the box score in Week 2 by Richard Sherman as the Seahawks smashed their division rival. The lasting images from the Week 2 opener between the Patriots and Jets were Tom Brady berating his receivers and Julian [...]

Chuck Pagano announced that versatile running back Vick Ballard sustained a torn right ACL and will be placed on injured reserve. Ahmad Bradshaw (eight touches for 33 yards in Week 1) and former first-round pick Donald Brown will split the workload in Ballard’s absence. Brown averaged 4.7 yards per carry in the preseason, but he’s [...]
