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 [...]

In addition to celebrating the social media movie event of the summer (“Sharknado”), Nate Lundy and I actually got a chance to talk about some real gridiron action. Howard Balzer, longtime NFL scribe and commentator, joined the show to talk about player [...]

Monday was a beautiful day here “Inside The Swollen Dome.” The podcast returned after a hiatus – call it a renewal with Vol. 1, Episode 1. I recapped the weekend’s events, got a little bit into the NBA Playoffs, Derrick Rose, early baseball returns, news of the weird and a wee bit of NFL schedule [...]

What else can you say? It what appeared to be a difficult spot against the heretofore strong Minnesota run defense, rookie Doug Martin dominated. You know the reference from the title of this blog, right? Yeah, it’s yet another Harmon ode to Beverly Hills 90210. Anyway, Martin followed up LaRod Stephen-Howling’s surprise 100-yard effort in [...]

Week 17 normally translates to “operation shutdown” for many folks. The playoff field is more or less set and only a few games solve anything without a domino effect in motion. Well, Week 17 of the 2011 season certainly had its fair share of twists and turns … and “operation shutdown” for a few teams [...]

It’s been a tough season for Josh Freeman and the Buccaneers, to say the least. Raheem Morris is under fire in Tampa for the team’s quick descent to the basement of the NFC South. The team is playing before a ton of empty seats. Freeman’s turnover count has risen markedly. Now comes word from Ira [...]

Another Big 10 player joins the party with the selection of Clayborn to bolster the Tampa Bay front. The Buccaneers added Gerald McCoy last season, and he was becoming a consistent, dominating force prior to his injury. Clayborn does have the question of stamina confronting him at the next level – his shoulder strength is [...]

I was starting to formulate a theory about 20th pick for Tampa Bay, but New York stepped in to grab Prince Amukamara out of Nebraska. The New York pass defense ranked ninth against the pass, but ceded 24 passing touchdowns. Cornerback play, combined with Eli Manning’s huge interception count, contributed to much of the angst [...]

Matt Moore experienced a difficult Week 1 against the Giants. He was beaten, battered and bruised by the New York defense, committing four turnovers before departing. After several days of speculation, Moore returned to the practice field and has been cleared to start Week 2 against the Buccaneers. Moore demonstrated his ability to get the [...]

Mike Harmon had a chance to chat with Tampa Bay rookie wide receiver Mike Williams during NFL Rookie Premiere festivities in Los Angeles at the end of May. Williams has been impressive during the preseason, thrusting him up the most recent WR rankings in the fantasy football world. Williams was wrapped up in an early [...]
