Week 8 Thoughts: Say Goodbye to Norv

October 30, 2012

2 Comments

This week in the NFL, teams began to really set themselves apart from the rest of the pack while for others the free fall continued. We have a contending pack of 3-4 in the AFC and legitimately 6-7 in the NFC. But before I get to anything: I hate the Patriots but during their visit […]

NFL Week 7 Thoughts: Rounding Into Form

October 23, 2012

1 Comment

This week in the NFL provided something we really hadn’t experienced to this point in the season — clarity.  We had this muddled group of “maybe contenders” — maybe they are, maybe they’re not — and we weren’t totally certain who was what. The NFC is basically four or five teams at this point. Outside […]

Week 6 NFL Thoughts: Do The Knee Jerk

October 16, 2012

Another week in the NFL done, another week with a few inexplicable results.  How the hell did the Cowboys, who managed to recover an onside kick with a timeout in its pocket and time to move the ball, manage to bullshit its way to the edge of field goal range? How some NFL coaches are […]

This week in the NFL was weird to me. It felt boring but had a handful of close games with finishes that came down to the wire. The Saints finally got in the win column on a night where Drew Brees breaks a Johnny Unitas record. The Colts rally to score a huge upset win for […]

Through the first four weeks of the NFL season, I’ve been high on a few teams only to have them rail me like it was an episode of Oz. After the first two weeks, I was convinced the 49ers were the team to beat.  Then they went into Minnesota and laid a stink bomb down. When […]

Week 3 NFL Thoughts: When the Wheels Came Off

September 25, 2012

Week 3 was really odd.  A set of overtime games highlighted by Detroit Lions backup Shaun Hill throwing two touchdown passes in the final :41 of their game against Tennessee to force overtime.  The coachless Saints dropping to 0-3. The Cardinals and Falcons just demolishing their opponents to move to 3-0. And there is of […]

Week 2  in the NFL has passed and I find myself feeling drastically different thank I did in week 1. A win from one’s favorite team would do that. Not only that but a couple of legitimately interesting storylines have emerged and yours truly is gonna break them down. Bills Turnaround? Look, I know you don’t care […]

Week 1 NFL Thoughts: Why Do I Have Expectations?

September 11, 2012

Being a sports fan is an exercise is masochism. We all whine and cry when our team sucks but enough time passes and we come back for more, leading with our chin like a punch drunk boxer. And when – SURPRISE! – our team sucks AGAIN, we piss and moan and act surprised like we […]
