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…

What We Learned: NFL Week 10

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 NFC North Preview & Predictions

August 9, 2011 2 comments

Green Bay Packers

The defending Super Bowl champs haven’t made much noise on the free agent market but that’s because they really didn’t have to. Aaron Rodgers is a legitimate MVP candidate while Clay Matthews leads one of the NFL’s most feared defenses. With all that being said, the Packers play in a tough division, have a pretty rough schedule, and have offensive line issues. However, I still think they’ll come away with the division crown.

Key Arrivals – none really, get back Ryan Grant and Jermichael Finley from injury

Key Departures – Cullen Jenkins, Nick Barnett, Brady Poppinga, Daryn Colledge, Korey Hall, Brandon Jackson, Donald Lee

Prediction – 11-5/First in NFC North Read more…
