December 13, 2011 2 comments

AFC East

New York Jets - Resounding and much needed win against a depleted Chiefs squad as they keep their playoff hopes alive.

New England Patriots - Got all they could handle from the Redskins but Brady and Gronkowski proved to be too much in the end.

Buffalo Bills - Falling apart, crumbling, disintegrating, etc.

Miami Dolphins - Winning ways come to an end as Vick spoils the party. Read more…

What We Learned: NFL Week 13

December 7, 2011 1 comment

AFC East

New York Jets - Opened it up in the 4th quarter. Much needed victory.

New England Patriots - Had a little more trouble with the Colts than anyone expected but a win is a win and their in the driver’s seat.

Buffalo Bills - Have now lost 5 in a row since Fitzpatrick’s extension.

Miami Dolphins - Look like a buzz-saw as they have won 4 or their last 5 games.

AFC West

Denver Broncos - Tebow and the Broncos complete another second half comeback and find themselves atop the AFC West.

Kansas City Chiefs - A Hail Mary touchdown pass at the end of the first half proved to be the game winner, who would have guessed that.

Oakland Raiders - Terrible performance in Miami and lost their grasp on the division in the process.

San Diego Chargers - Finally, a win!

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens - Stop everything, they avoided a letdown!

Pittsburgh Steelers - Looking more and more like the Steelers of old as the season progresses.

Cleveland Browns - Someone needs to tell the receivers that they have to actually catch and hold onto the ball.

Cincinnati Bengals - Showed their youth and inexperience against the pride of the AFC North.

AFC South

Houston Texans - Great win against a quality opponent. Hopefully Andre Johnson isn’t hurt too seriously though.

Indianapolis Colts - Great effort down the stretch but a winless season looks to be inevitable.

Tennessee Titans - CJ finally put up back to back fantastic performances, look out for the Titans.

Jacksonville Jaguars - New coach same old result.

NFC East

New York Giants - Valiant effort but fell just short.

Dallas Cowboys - That clock mismanagement sums up the Cowboys over the past decade. Why didn’t they call a timeout after the Dez Bryant catch and why are you icing your own kicker?!

Philadelphia Eagles - The Eagles are officially done after that performance…pathetic.

Washington Redskins - Played well for 3 quarters, too bad the game lasts 4.

NFC West

San Francisco 49ers - Another dominating win against an inferior opponent, no letdowns.

St. Louis Rams - Um, yea…

Arizona Cardinals - Defense is much improved and Kolb is back. Look like a playoff team’s worst nightmare.

Seattle Seahawks - I would not want to play the Seahawks looking at the way Marshawn Lynch is playing right now, beast mode.

NFC North

Chicago Bears - First Jay Cutler, now Matt Forte. The Bears playoff chances just took a major hit.

Green Bay Packers - Barely cleared their last hurdle and should cruise to an undefeated record.

Detroit Lions - Lost 2 in a row but favorable schedule the rest of the way with the exception of the Packers.

Minnesota Vikings - Percy Harvin was sensational but Ponder made a critical mistake in crunch time.

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons - Horrible loss against a Schaub-less Texans squad. Extremely inconsistent.

New Orleans Saints - Scary, scary, scary!…at home. We’ll see what they look like outside in January.

Tampa Bay Bucs - Haven’t been winning with Freeman, definitely not going to win without him.

Carolina Panthers - Cam looks like a seasoned vet. He’s gonna be gooooood!

AFC East

New York Jets - A win is a win, but what an ugly win it was.

New England Patriots - Despite the revolving door in the secondary the defense continues to progress.

Miami Dolphins - Another close, tough loss. Read more…

What We Learned: NFL Week 11

November 24, 2011 Leave a comment

AFC East

New York Jets - Sanchez can’t complete a pass if his first option isn’t open, the defense can’t stop a quarterback who they know is going to run, and Rex Ryan is cursing at fans. Jets are in big trouble.

New England Patriots - Despite the revolving door in the secondary the defense continues to progress.

Buffalo Bills - Fitzpatrick and the Bills are 0-4 since his contract extension.

Miami Dolphins - 3 in a row. Told you the Fins weren’t as bad as their record said they were. Read more…

I’m switching up the format of “What We Learned” so I can include every single NFL team instead of just a few.

AFC East

New York Jets – Soooo, about that Rex Ryan defense…

New England Patriots – Two words, vintage Brady.

Buffalo Bills – David Nelson’s touchdown catch and celebration with his cheerleader girlfriend was by far the highlight for the Bills.

Miami Dolphins – Two in a row! I like their chances to make it 3 at home against the sputtering Bills. Read more…

2011 AFC North Preview & Predictions

August 13, 2011 7 comments

Pittsburgh Steelers

The pride of the AFC North returns basically every starter from last season. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not miss any games, unlike last year, and the Steelers’ defense is once again projected to be among the league’s best. The Steelers aren’t without issues though, as losing Flozell Adams and Max Starks from an already shaky offensive line will definitely take its toll throughout the course of the season. Overall, I think the Steelers will coast to another first place finish within the division.

Key Arrivals – John Malecki, John Gilmore

Key Departures – Flozell Adams, Max Starks, Matt Spaeth

Prediction – 12-4/First in AFC North Read more…
