In 1985, the Philadelphia Eagles used a second-round pick on UNLV’s Randall Cunningham. Despite signing with the USFL’s Tampa Bay Bandits that spring, Cunningham eventually landed in Philadelphia and embarked on a 16-year NFL career. With the former signal-caller turning 50 on Wednesday, we take a look at the defining moments of one of the most exciting players in NFL history. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Ready for Primetime ————————————————————————————————————————————– On Oct. 10, 1988, the Eagles were on “Monday Night Football” for the first time in seven years. Their opponent that night at the Vet were the division-rival New York Giants, a team that had won the last six meetings with Philadelphia. With the Eagles trailing by three in the second quarter, Cunningham rolled […]

The the NFL playoffs are finally here. Wild Card weekend came and passed without too much hubbub, as three of the four games didn’t quite live up to the billing. Nevertheless, there were plenty of surprises as usual, so let’s get to the unexpected (and expected) for Wild Card weekend.

The story of the 2012 season can’t be told without the dominating narrative of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson. But there came a point during the season when these guys went from “nice story,” to, “I can’t believe it, these guys can lead their team to the playoffs.”

It’s all sorts of fun to sit around and figure out who was fantasy football’s best player (Adrian Peterson) or best rookie (Robert Griffin III) and any number of other top awards. But what about some of the fringe fantasy honors that too often go overlooked? For instance, what about the biggest “Where did that come from?” performance of the year, which is a toss-up between Brian Hartline (Week 4), Shonn Greene (Week 6) and Doug Martin (Week 9). Or how can we overlook the “Too Little, Too Late” award that should go unanimously to Larry Fitzgerald for his Week 16 outing. It’s all in a season’s work in fantasy football.

2012. What can we say? The Mayans were obviously wrong. Thank goodness because the NFL experienced quite a year of amazement from the Giants improbable Super Bowl win against the New England Patriots to this season’s comebacks of Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson to the establishment of the 2012 rookie QB class of Andrew Luck, RG3 and Russell Wilson. So, relax and enjoy as our staff takes you back to the good, the bad, and the memorable of 2012.

The season may be winding down, but the hyperbole is just getting started. The much-lauded 2012 rookie class has featured the likes of such playmakers as Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson, and Doug Martin, all of whom have been fixtures in league headlines for the last 16 weeks. But what about the rest of the gang? I’m not talking about the likes of Alfred Morris or Josh Gordon, going from draft day afterthoughts to key players in their teams’ seasons. I’m talking about the other big guns, the best of the rest who stood in the spotlight on the Radio City Music Hall stage with the commish, but have somehow ended up in the shadows during the 2012 season. Well, their […]

We’re still in holiday mode, even though Santa didn’t bring our favorite team a playoff spot. However, jolly old St. Nick has been generous with a few other teams. The NFC playoff spots are still up for grabs. But even if you’ve been naughty or nice, we’re going to present you with out generous gift of content for this past week. Sunday: RG3 Zone – RG3 makes a comeback against the Eagles. It’s like he’s never left. Madden Curse Watch – Megatron transforms Jerry Rice’s all-time record. Adrian Peterson – All Day Zone – All the highlights from every game Adrian Peterson’s played in as he inches closer to breaking Eric Dickerson’s all-time season rushing record. Monday: Week 16: Curse, […]

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 […]

The holidays are a magical time of the year. Families come together, communities help the needy, and almost anything is possible. Including miracles. Several NFL teams are in need of such a miracle, whether for a playoff run or long-term future of their franchise. Here’s a run-down of which NFL teams are in need of a little magic this holiday season:
