With 85th Academy Awards happening this weekend, some of the best “true” and fictional stories told on the silver screen from last year will be honored with miniature gold statues of a naked man. What an honor! And with the NFL offseason just starting to ramp up at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis this weekend, we thought it’d be fun to take advantage of this down time to look into the future and see what remarkable story-lines we could be in line for next season. Last season featured a number of Hollywood-worthy tales, from the Harbaugh Bowl to the rookie sensations at quarterback to Ray Lewis going out on top and on and on. Below are a few highly speculative […]

With all the money, fame and attention bestowed upon NFL players it is easy to forget that even at the Pro Bowl — where all-stars are recognized for extraordinary performance on the field — off of the field they are still a group of ordinary young men. They are sons, brothers, husbands and fathers, who laugh at and worry about the same things as the rest of us. In the short period of time since the players arrived in Hawaii on Tuesday afternoon there have been constant reminders of that for those of us working closely with them. In my last NFL.com blog, I mentioned that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who has been selected to his 12th Pro Bowl […]

The NFL has landed in Hawaii to begin final preparations for what might be the last Pro Bowl game ever played. For those of us who work it, this is our baby, and we are pulling out all the stops to give the game its best possible chance to succeed. Two critical pieces that will help determine the decision whether to continue playing the All-Star game are ticket sales, and the performance of the athletes on the field. The latter is out of our hands, but we have good reason to hope. The players fought hard to keep this game — and keep it in Hawaii — during the last round of labor negotiations, and they are well aware that […]

1. With Redskins QB Robert Griffin III’s win at Saints in Week 1 and QB Kirk Cousins’ Week 15 win at Browns, the Redskins became the first team in a non-strike season to have two different rookie quarterbacks win their first career starts in the same season, since rookies John Elway and Gary Kubiak won their starting debuts with the 1983 Broncos. ————————————————————————————————————————————– 2. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw a game-winning touchdown pass in the final two minutes of regulation or overtime three times this season, the most ever by a rookie since at least the 1970 merger. ————————————————————————————————————————————– 3. Colts QB Andrew Luck led seven game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime, which ties the highest single season […]

If you fine folks have followed along, you know I received a Festivus miracle last week when the Tennessee Titans defense scored 18 points (thank you, Mark Sanchez) to secure the win against Matt “Money” Smith. I ultimately fell short in that league (more on those circumstances in a moment). I went 2-2 on Championship Weekend, as I again took out “Money” in our NFL.com Experts League. So I’m stuck in kind of limbo, fantasy purgatory similar to the finale of “Lost.” But two championships is pretty cool. And to fight off my NFL Fantasy Live peers for the second time in three seasons is pretty cool, too. Moving on, it should be noted so many fantasy football championships were […]

If the Mayans are correct, the world will end tomorrow, and if you’ve been paying attention there have been several signs in the 2012 NFL season that the Mayans may have been right after all

Fantasy football stopped being fun for a lot of us in Week 16. Though, I’ve long contended fantasy football isn’t fun. You’re gutted when your team loses, and you’re merely relived when your team wins.
