Instead, it was just another week in the NFL where another unsuspecting man got hit in the face with a football. Let’s get to the unexpected (and expected) for week 15.

By: Robert Karpeles As the last few weeks of the NFL season come to an end, it’s important to keep in mind that the most exciting football hasn’t even been played yet. Yes, the best is still to come and with good games come even better storylines. You know, the one’s about the Jets sneaking in at the last second, quarterback controversies in San Francisco and the health of the quarterback in our nations’ capital. We live for football. But we also live for the great stories that stay with us after the games have been played. Here our nine things we hope for nine teams with playoff potential: Jets – Make the playoffs.

Not sure if you were paying attention, or taking an open-eyed snooze like some NFL referees, but it’s week 14 and the playoff race is heating up as more teams drop out, and one pesky team hangs on for dear life.

The San Francisco 49ers host the Chicago Bears in a highly anticipated matchup among two of the league’s best teams. Both teams are coming off of disappointing performances in their prior outing; San Francisco is coming off of a frustrating tie against St. Louis, and Chicago lost a sloppy 13-6 slugfest against Houston. With Alex Smith out, it becomes especially important that the 49ers gets their ground game on track to make things easier on second-year QB Colin Kaepernick as he makes his first NFL start. Behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter, the 49ers lead the NFL averaging 170.2 rushing yards per game on a staggering 5.61 yards per carry, and look to exploit a Bears defense that has had […]

Historically, players who are featured on the cover of the “Madden NFL” franchise experience significant drops in their offensive production.

Last night’s preseason opener for the Broncos and Bears wasn’t pretty. They rarely are, and when teams keep their starters off the field like they did, the possibility for ugliness is even more likely. Still, it was the debut of Peyton Manning in a Broncos uniform, his first chance to work with his new team in a game setting. Clearly, that was the highlight. Want to review? Let’s hit on some highlights from our trip to Chicago… – I think I’m over the jarring feeling of seeing Manning in another uniform. Took a while, but I’ve grown accustomed to it. That’s just kinda how this all is. Players change teams, with so few exceptions. That’s reality. But it was cool […]

Lance Briggs‘ new contract with the Bears includes over $8.25 million in new guarantees, and richly rewards the linebacker for his work with the team. A year after requesting a trade, and at a time when linebackers have been struggling mightily to get significant contracts on the open market, Briggs secured a strong deal from the Bears thanks to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.
