The Minnesota Vikings just three days earlier played a heck of a game […]

Diversion Over Deflation

Diversion Over Deflation

As the New England Patriots and NFL throw feces back and forth at each other, the latest being a 20,000 word rebuttal of the The Wells Report by the Patriots, the NFL’s trying to levy punishments that clearly should be meant for teams that employ the worst of the worst players or tactics to win.

Wilder Weekend Sought!

Wilder Weekend Sought!

The four Wild Card games this weekend were far from wild, and because of this the thought that the NFL has bottomed out as a league is starting to become apparent.

Today marks my first unofficial day of fall, and although autumn started a week ago, I usually tend to wait until the first of October to welcome the best season of the year. Why’s it the best season you ask, well simply put it’s the most pristine time of year. The leaves are changing, it’s getting cooler, sports and TV […]

Walkover

Walkover

Last night’s game went exactly how you’d want it to for the Bears. They didn’t play well in all phases of the game, but they beat a bad team convincingly. The Jets never want Geno Smith to have to make plays from the pocket, and it took less then a minute to figure out why. As Smith was trying to […]

Cut to the Chase

Reporting day has come and the Bears have finally taken the field in Bourbonnais for their first official practice of the season. The Bears biggest question heading into the 2014-15 campaign is the play of Jay Cutler who in the offseason signed a new 7-year deal worth $127 Million.

NFL Draft 2014

NFL Draft 2014

While sitting at my computer waiting for the draft to arrive I decided to channel surf for pre-draft coverage and started with the NFL Network.  My first stop delivered an immediate and obvious insight that startled nonetheless:  the NFL draft is huge, and college football is made huger for it. The NFL Network starting its draft programming today at Noon CDT and will be […]
