Welcome to week 16, where we saw several records be broken… by kickers! There was also a 50-burger dropped in Green Bay, a real record broken in Detroit, and a heart-warming moment as the cherry on top of a wild Sunday. Let’s get to the unexpected (and expected) for week 16.

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.

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was lifted during Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals in what might have been the worst game in NFL history, or at least this week. While Greg McElroy led the Jets to a win over the Cardinals, Mark Sanchez was caught furiously scribbling on his clipboard. What could he have possibly been writing? We got a sneak peak with our spy camera.

There wasn’t outrageous debate in the upper Northwest over who should be the Seattle Seahawks’ starting quarterback in 2012.
“Russell Wilson will start against the Raiders (in the preseason finale) and will start the first week of the regular season,” Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during a conference call on Sunday. “He is so prepared, he does not seem like a first-year quarterback.”
Wilson was so prolific in every facet of his first three preseason games he did not give the third-year head coach much of a choice.

Terrell Owens finally got the tryout he’s all but been begging for since his stint with the Cincinnati Bengals ended in 2010 and he injured his anterior cruciate ligament during the ensuing offseason.
The Seattle Seahawks confirmed Sunday night that they plan to bring T.O. in for a workout Monday.

The Seahawks have three quarterbacks, and as the old saying goes, if you have three, you have none. Or something like that. I may have butchered it, but you get the idea. If you don’t have a clear starter, you don’t have any quarterbacks. Given the offseason acquisition of ex-Packers free agent Matt Flynn, the drafting of Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson, and the fact that incumbent Tarvaris Jackson hasn’t distinguished himself beyond showing toughness — it’s been a battle. With this portion of the offseason nearly over, Carroll hasn’t decided on a starter. Really, I was intrigued with how he described the competition. As our buddy Brian McIntyre told us, Carroll said, “Draft picks and money and stuff like that is […]

The Seahawks thought enough of Russell Wilson at rookie mini-camp to thrust him into competition for the starting QB job. Yes, even after signing free agent Matt Flynn earlier in the year. But as colleague Albert Breer tells us, little is settled with Seattle’s situation under center. That puts Wilson in an interesting position. Coach Pete Carroll has shown a propensity for allowing rookies (and freshman at USC) to thrive, and this could be another instance of that. He also loves open competitions. But here’s the thing about Wilson… he’s short. Oh, didn’t you hear? Really short. Like, 5-foot-11 (gasp!) I know, I know, it’s amazing they even let him play football at that height. It’s a charge that dogged […]

Happy Monday everybody. What a weekend we just had. “The Avengers” set all sorts of records, and will even get this DC-loving comic enthusiast to see a Marvel movie. Albert Pujols hit his first home run of the season. The Los Angeles Kings swept the Blues (we’re waiting for St. Louis to honor its obligation in a civic bet to send over its football team). And we got our first glimpse of some of the newest NFL stars. There is so much going on, let’s take a look at some of the top fantasy storylines.

Happy Thursday, everybody. It’s getaway day here for a certain someone who is going to take a long weekend before the draft. But I won’t be mailing it in until later today, so let’s look at some fantasy news.

Many of the people who watched QB Ryan Tannehill throw on Thursday watched Brock Osweiler have an excellent workout at Arizona State on Friday

After his performance at the Texas A&M pro day on Thursday, I think there’s a very good chance that QB Ryan Tannehill can be a top pick in the NFL Draft in April.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll strolled up to the podium, eyed a bunch of empty seats and pointed to a lonely beat writer: “You’re going to need to carry this thing.” Quick laughs from those gathered Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine, but Carroll wasn’t finished.
