It’s Wonderful NFL Life: Reasons for hope for your team

Every year many of us gather around the TV to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life,” a lovely Christmas tale where George Bailey is given a second chance on life after a visit from a guardian angel. And many of you are likely a little morose after your team has failed to reach the playoffs in 2012. Well, consider me your Clarence as I show you why there is reason for hope with your favorite team. And without further ado …

Unexpected (and expected) for Week 11: Keep smiling

Not sure what Chad Henne is smirking about here, he knows he plays for the Jaguars, right? He instantly looks like every bad guy from a movie based in college. He could easily be the president of the Alpha Betas and quarterback at Adams College if they ever want to do a remake of “Revenge of the Nerds.”

Fantasy Post Mortem: RG3 rules, Matt Ryan iced

There is a segment we run every Monday called #thathelpsnoone where we celebrate the curtain jerkers who rob precious fantasy points from the guys we actually started. And if we wanted to, we could have filled the entire hour on Monday with #thathelpsnoone and we’re not even talking about the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Post Mortem: Philip Rivers struggles again

Start Philip Rivers and all of your Chargers with confidence this week. This is a Norv Turner game where this team rallies for a somewhat meaningless win in October. These were all my rally cries prior to the Chargers game in Cleveland.

So much for that.

Unexpected (and expected): This one’s for Chuck

The NFC North is a two-team race, just as we all figured. What we didn’t figure was it would be the Chicago Bears (well, we kinda figured them) and the Minnesota Vikings (nobody saw it coming). The Bears and Vikings won in a pair of laughers, but the Packers?

Fantasy Post Mortem: Chris Johnson delivers

This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.

Reactions and reflections after a couple days spent with the Philadelphia Eagles…

The week of work and collection has come to an end, as we brace ourselves for Sunday. Wednesday, I was in Baltimore with the Ravens. Then, Thursday and Friday, I was in Philly with the Eagles. As for what I learned, you’ll see a lot of that on NFL Network’s First on the Field and GameDay Morning. But want a few quick thoughts? Let’s go… – It was a rough day for Eagles QB Michael Vick  against the Browns, one that included four interceptions. The consensus seems to be that there were mistakes he made mentally, not physically. Trusting his eyes and knowing what he’s looking at will be important as he moves forward against the active Ravens front. But Vick, who […]

McNabb on Vick: Just a bad day at the office

Donovan McNabb says the Eagles’ game plan did Michael Vick no favors in Week 1.

Recapping this road trip: The Philadelphia edition

Let me say upfront that I embrace any opportunity to travel around and see another team and learn about them and write stuff and go on TV to talk about it. It’s the job, it’s fun, and it’s all good. But when I saw Philadelphia on my docket for this week, I smiled a little more than normal. Ah, the cheeseteak. My favorite road food in an epic grudge match with etouffee of New Orleans. So, another chance to have a cheesesteak? I’ll take it. Oh, I also saw the Eagles practice (and wrote this article and said this on TV). Want some highlights of my trip to Philly? – Let’s start with the important stuff. I’ve been to Pat’s, […]

Eagles QB Michael Vick: “We’re ready to let this momentum carry over into training camp.”

The last time the Eagles headed into a training camp, the optimism was crazy. Yes, yes, you remember the Dream Team. Well, all of that is no more. Instead, what’s left is a team with really good players. But there is still optimism mixed in. I watched the Eagles go through their final workout of mini-camp, a high-tempo affair with Vick right in the center. And afterward, he told me what he thought. “We had a good camp, a good spring, and we feel good about it,” Vick told me. “Ready to let this momentum carry over into training camp. … We can relax now, enjoy the days off, and take the days as they come.“ As I said, the […]
