  • Records and Milestones in the 2011 NFL Season

    The 2011 NFL season was the year of the quarterback, although kickers (Janikowski, Akers), return men (Sproles, Peterson, Cobb) and Tight Ends (Gronkowski) made an impact. Still, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Drew Brees, with Cam Newton dominating the rookie department, stood above everyone else during the regular season. The postseason was all Eli Manning.

  • Super Bowl XLVII – Super Baugh?

    Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh are the first pair of brothers to serve as NFL head coaches in the league’s history. Jim, in his debut season as an NFL head coach, led the San Francisco 49ers to a 13-3 record and needs to beat the Giants to reach the Super Bowl. John has led the Baltimore Ravens to the post season for a fourth consecutive time and his second AFC championship game.

  • Giants vs Packers – Eli Manning Feeling Like 2008 Again

    Eli Manning came through, as he has all season for the Giants, leading them to a surprising win over the Green Bay Packers, the best team in the NFL during the regular season, and the would be MVP Aaron Rodgers, stunning in Lambeau Field 37-20.

  • Saints vs 49ers – Alex Smith Rules Epic Fourth Quarter

    Alex Smith has been waiting for this moment since becoming the number one pick in the 2005 draft. From the future franchise quarterback to one who didn’t get to play a snap in 2008 and almost getting cut to the first quarterback to win a game for the 49ers in the postseason, leading them over the Saints to a 36-32 win.

  • Broncos vs Patriots – Poor Tebow and Perfect Brady

    Tom Brady hasn’t won a playoff game in quite sometime. Four years to be exact, followed by two losses on the Patriots’ first game of the postseason. The Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow weren’t about to stop the Pats from advancing to the AFC championship game, throwing for a record-tying six touchdown passes en route to a 45-10 demolition.

  • Aaron Rodgers – From Great to Legendary Quarterback

    Aaron Rodgers has won a Super Bowl and looked more than impressive during the 2011 NFL season. Until the Packers lost to the Chiefs back in week 15, he was pretty much a consensus pick for the MVP award. Drew Brees’ record breaking performances took the spotlight from then on.

  • Saints and Brees Ready to Make History

    Drew Brees throwing for 466 yards and three touchdown passes? Doesn’t surprise us. The New Orleans Saints not punting even once, going for it on every fourth down? Doesn’t surprise as well. The Saints now need to stun us by winning on the road, in the postseason, for the first time in franchise history.

  • 2012 NFL Draft Order and Beyond Andrew Luck

    Andrew Luck going to the Indianapolis Colts seems like a done deal, but there will be enough offensive talent to share in the 2012 NFL draft among the first 20 first round teams and picks we already know about.

  • Giants Enter Playoffs as NFC’s Hottest Team

    Eli Manning is a fourth quarter wiz. Victor Cruz looks like the most unstoppable wide reciever in football. The defensive line carved up the Cowboys’ Offensive Line like Turkey. The New York Giants dominated their two must win games, playoff games in fact, entering the post season hotter than any other team with a 31-14 win.

  • 2011 NFL Playoffs or Who Can Beat the Green Bay Packers?

    The Green Bay Packers might be the team with the best record in the NFL, but the New York Giants look scary heading into the NFC playoffs. In the AFC, it’ll probably be between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens after chewing up the Wild Card winners.
