Harmon returns with a pick for the opener for Week 10. It’s time for the Thursday Night Football contest between the Redskins and Vikings. The Redskins are favored by 2.5 in Minnesota. I’ll take the Washington run game (whomever carries it across the threshold) and a few key plays by Robert Griffin III to get […]

Monday’s game between the Vikings and Giants ranked among the worst that we’ve sat through in some time. Both offenses struggled markedly, and Josh Freeman’s frequent overthrowing of his receivers (16 times) became the subject of derision and scrutiny across the social media landscape and the broadcast network airing the game. I shan’t repeat some […]

The sporting world is in full effect as we roll full-steam into springtime. The first round of the NBA Playoffs are coming to an end (the Spurs and Thunder lead the parade of teams rolling into the next round), the conference finals are on the horizon in the NHL, Major League Baseball has entered its […]

After failed attempted to jumpstart the offense, the courting of Brett Favre back from Mississippi and his brief foray into comedy (you remember that press conference, don’t you?), the Vikings decided that Sunday’s 31-3 loss to the Packers was the final straw. They put Childress […]

A quick review of the overall stat lines from the NFC title game makes you scratch your head. The Saints shouldn’t have been in this game. Period. The Vikings moved the ball well. They played solid defense. In the end, the Saints won in the only statistical category that matters in the NFL universe. The […]
