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.

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. Please, these guys just have to […]

Daily Rewind

As we look ahead to an exciting Week 13 in the NFL, here are a few more enticing features from the week that was in case you missed them.

Colin Kaepernick – The Secret Ingredient

With Colin Kaepernick continuing his ascent as the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback, we dug a little deeper and may have uncovered the secret to his success. No, it’s not his pet tortoise Sammy. It’s food. While he may not be Top Chef material just yet, it appears Kaepernick has quite the palette and has taken to Instagram to show it off. Here are some of his most recent edible conquests: ————————————————————————————————————————————– Chicken, Rice, and Green Beans Nothing too outside the ordinary here. Kaepernick is getting the essential proteins and carbs that all athletes need. Starting athletes, especially. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Fruit Salad Continuing the healthy trend, Kaepernick posted this assortment of fruits that he was consuming one afternoon. Recent reports from […]

Rhyme Time with Ray Rice – Our NFL Week 12 Nursery Rhymes

After Ray Rice dubbed his now infamous 4th-and-29-play “Hey Diddle Diddle Ray Rice Up The Middle,” we thought it’d be fun to parody some other iconic nursery rhymes to tell the best stories of Week 12. Check out the list below:

NFL fantasy football: Put your Kaepernick on?

It’s no surprise that Colin Kaepernick is the talk of the NFL on Tuesday. After all, when you carve up the league’s leading defense with 243 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns in your first-ever NFL start, you’re going to turn a few heads. But it begs the question … should you pick him up off the waiver wire? Undoubtedly, Kaepernick looked fantastic on Monday night. But Alex Smith has been pretty good all season long, completing 70 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. Therein lies the rub. Smith isn’t a fantasy monster (he ranks just 24th among QBs in 2012) but the Niners are winning with him under center. Jim Harbaugh might not hate your […]

Monday Nightmare: Vernon Davis is back for fantasy owners

Call off the search, we’ve found Vernon Davis! And it turns it, Colin Kaepernick knew where he was the entire time. Just when we were ready to write off Davis for good, he comes out with a monster performance against the Monsters of the Midway.

49ers look to trap Bears on ‘Monday Night Football’

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 […]

Data Points: Top games by rookie QBs in Week 1

With several teams seemingly uncertain about their status behind center and the fact that six quarterbacks were drafted in the first 36 picks in April — including four in the first round — we could be getting ready to see something in Week 1 that we’ve never seen before.

First and 10: Burress pays a visit

When the NFL lockout ends, Super Bowl XLII hero Plaxico Burress can begin his search for a new team in earnest. In the meantime, he’ll make an appearance Thursday at the NFL Network and NFL.com offices to talk about his new ventures with the National Urban League and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Cover Two Podcast: Rattling some feathers

NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks got some feathers rattled recently in a column he wrote suggesting that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers shouldn’t be crowned among the league’s elite quarterbacks (Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Tom Brady) yet. Some of those emotions might get stirred up again as we broached the subject in the Cover Two podcast with Brooks and NFL.com senior writer Steve Wyche.
