The NFL “Goat Guide” for championship weekend

Year after year, when a team loses a big game the fans, and sometimes players, anoint a scapegoat, or more simply a goat, to carry the blame. Let’s take a look at the 2011 goats, and who might steal their crown in 2012.

Pro Bowl: The Super Bowl’s crazy cousin

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 […]

Welcome to the Monday Nightmare and this truly was the most anxiety-filled night of fantasy football I’ve ever experienced.

Fantasy football: Trade Shonn Greene now

Fanatasy Post Mortem: Jamaal Charles gives sweet relief

NFL fantasy football: Tony Romo could thrive Week 3

Can Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo have the best showing of the young season in Week 3?

With the Patriots looming, Ravens S Bernard Pollard discusses his response when fans call him “The Brady Killer”

For years, major Patriots injuries have had one constant — Bernard Pollard was either involved or had a front-row seat for them. Think about it. When Tom Brady tore his ACL, it was Pollard with the Chiefs who slammed into his left knee. When Wes Welker tore his ACL, Pollard with the Texans was inches away from drilling him. And last year, when TE Rob Gronkowski suffered a brutal high-ankle sprain leading up to the Super Bowl, it was Pollard with the Ravens who brought him down (left). Three different teams for Pollard, three different injuries to Patriots. Yikes. It’s no wonder that he’s considered one of the all-time Patriots villains by fans. There are even T-Shirts honoring, um, his […]

NFL fantasy football: Ryan Mathews’ return still uncertain

Post Mortem: Robert Griffin III as good as advertised

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.

NFL Fantasy football: Richardson has big plans

Nine really random things and whatever else is going on around the NFL…

In the newspaper world, the football coverage for Sunday’s paper is in the form of a notes package. In the internet world, we can do notes, too. I’ve been trying to come up with some kinda feature for Sunday on the blog, and I may tweak this going forward.

Willie McGinest to Wes Welker: Stop being a diva

Ex-Patriots normally don’t take too kindly to behavior that potentially detracts from team goals (see: Tedy Bruschi and Chad Ochocinco, 2011). So you can imagine what NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest thinks of Patriots WR Wes Welker‘s statement Tuesday that he’s “probably not” going to attend the team’s mandatory June 12-14 minicamp unless he receives a long-term contract.
