First and 10: Sanchez, Tebow, D-Jax and more

Hope you all enjoyed a happy Mother’s Day. Now we can look forward to perhaps some news from the 8th Circuit Court about the NFL lockout at some point about. In the meantime, here are some links to get your NFL week started:

Brandt converted to the black-and-gold side

Like a hostage victim sympathizing with their captures, I have finally worn down the esteemed Gil Brandt, as he is now adorned with my Terrible Towel.

Who do you have for Super Bowl MVP?

We made it to the press box, and we are ready to start the game. But in the meantime, we kick around our picks for Super Bowl MVP. Come on in and make your own.

Welcome to Super Bowl Sunday

As Rich Eisen said this morning on NFL GameDay, today just happens to be the nicest day all week. Good omen? Let’s hope so.

Packers great Lofton ready for alumni game

Steelers and Packers, who do you got? The Steelers have won the most Super Bowl championships, but the Packers have the most NFL titles. Titletown vs. Sixburgh.

Who do you got: Bears or Packers?

The Bears and Packers have the most longest, and perhaps the most storied rivalry in the NFL. The two teams have played 181 times in the past, and will be fighting it out for a chance to play for the NFL’s ultimate honor for the first time since 1941.

Maybe football should be played outside

Maybe Dave Dameshek is right, the football gods are mocking domed stadiums.

Rodgers owners embrace team QB concept

Anybody in favor of team quarterbacks would likely get a lot of support from fantasy enthusiasts who started Packers QB Aaron Rodgers in Week 14.

Pick Six: NFL players-turned-actors

While Dave Dameshek’s column this week contained a list of the top athletes-turned-actors, here is the more “official” list of NFL players who have turned that trick.

Peterson’s ankle appears to be OK

Any concerns about the injured ankle of RB Adrian Peterson should rest easy, at least for today. Peterson has scored a pair of touchdowns as the Vikings are getting ready to run the Bills out of the Metrodome.

Nearly every Colts player questionable

The Colts could save a lot of time and effort if they just listed every notable player on their team as questionable or worse. The Colts injury report looks like the VIP list for St. Elmo Steak House in Indianapolis — WRs Austin Collie (hand), Anthony Gonzalez (knee), Mike Hart (ankle) and Joseph Addai (neck) are all questionable or worse.

QB controversy brewing in Philadelphia?

Now what is Eagles coach Andy Reid going to do? Certainly Reid can say that it is a good problem to have, rolling with a pair of capable quarterbacks. But there seems to be a controversy blooming on the horizon.

Overreaction Theater: Brees is worst in the league

Drew Brees is the worst quarterback in the league. Kyle Orton would have been a better first-round pick than Brees in my fantasy draft. Come on people, do not overreact.

Saints RB Thomas is out for Week 5

When you think of all of the great fantasy players for the Saints, where would you rank Ladell Betts and Chris Ivory? They were likely an afterthought in your drafts, unless you are playing in a ridiculously deep draft.

Rodgers spreading the love

I might have to consult Dave Dameshek on this, but Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could be a candidate for the fantasy enemies list. Which on one hand seems obscene in that he is the best fantasy quarterback in the business.
