BILLS (+1.5) OVER Dolphins A lot of people are getting excited... Read more »

Roger Goodell Must Go

Roger Goodell Must Go
So that escalated quickly… Well, actually, I suppose not exactly. And that’s what has everybody so irate. News broke yesterday that the NFL had seen footage of the Ray Rice elevator video in April. This is two days after TMZ released the footage Monday morning of Rice assaulting his now wife, Janay (Palmer) Rice, in Atlantic... Read more »

NFL Picks: Week 1
I told you on Thursday, I’m going undefeated this year. And so far, so good. If we are the Seahawks, then Vegas is the Packers about to take the smackdown.

Ok, let’s go ahead and get this out of the way early. I’m not Nostradamus. Nor am I Miss Cleo. Hell, I’m barely any good at Price is Right. So I’m going to pick every one of the these NFL games over the next five months or so. And I’m going to act like I know... Read more »

NFL Preview: NFC West

NFL Preview: NFC West
THE JUGGERNAUT! THE CRUCIBLE! THE BEST OF THE WEST! Whatever you want to call it, this division is the best.

NFL Preview: NFC South

NFL Preview: NFC South
The NFC South has been one of the most chaotic divisions over the past few years. One minute we all think Josh Freeman is leading the Buccaneers to the promised land after a 10-6 season, the next minute, he’s traded away before embarrassing himself on Monday Night Football. One minute, Matt Ryan is one Tony... Read more »

NFL Preview: NFC North

NFL Preview: NFC North
My goodness, this is a fun division! Aaron Rodgers will be gun slinging into Lambeau Leaps to in Green Bay; Adrian Peterson will bowl through a defense inspiring Viking horn celebration sound to echo throughout the Metrodome; Megatron will leap over tall buildings to pull down a pass Stafford somehow threw like a Vortex; and...

NFL Preview: NFC East

NFL Preview: NFC East
The AFC was fun and all (you can read the division previews here for the AFC East, North, South and West), but let us not forget… they got STOMPED in the Super Bowl. The NFC holds the crown, but the Seahawks time at the top is temporary. Can a new team take the NFC throne?... Read more »

NFL Preview: AFC West

NFL Preview: AFC West
We ran through the rest of the AFC, previewing the East, North and South prior to this juggernaut out West.

    I grew up in Pittsburgh and played football for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons from 2006-2010, with one ACC Championship (thank you Reggie Ball). I'm a Steelers, Penguins, Pirates and Bulls fan. We didn't have an NBA team, so I was allowed to adopt Jordan's team. Since moving to Chicago at New Years 2012, the parties in Wrigleyville, nostalgia from Jordan's entrance music, and chills from the Hawks' national anthem all got me to adopt the Second City as my second city.
