Patriots WR Deion Branch Talks About His Big Game Against Detroit, Tom Brady and the Jets

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

After spending the last four seasons in relative anonymity in Seattle, Deion Branch is back with the team he started with in 2002, the New England Patriots.  His years in Seattle were marred by injuries and a few coaching changes, but fortunately for him, he was able to get out ...

Rex Ryan on This Week’s Game Against New England: “It’s probably as big of a regular season game as I have been involved in”

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

When it comes to the AFC East, there is no bigger game that Patriots-Jets. This year is no exception and that’s what makes this week’s Monday night matchup between the two teams so enticing. Monday’s game against New England is just one game for the Jets, but to downplay the ...

Sean Payton Has the Saints Humming at Just the Right Time of Year

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

After a somewhat sluggish 4-3 start, the New Orleans Saints seem to be back in Super Bowl form. The Saints are now 8-3 after having ripped off four straight wins, with their latest coming on Thanksgiving Day against the Cowboys. Next up for Sean Payton's squad is a trip to ...

FSU Has Made Jumbo Strides Under Jimbo

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

A lot of Florida State fans were up in arms last season about how the school was forcing Bobby Bowden to retire, but I think their opinion has since changed.  In just his first year as head coach of the Seminoles, Jimbo Fisher has brought FSU back to prominence after ...

Roy Hibbert Is the Best Player in the NBA That Nobody is Talking About

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

If I would have wrote that the Indiana Pacers would have two less win than the Miami Heat 15 games into the season before the year started, I would have been laughed at and not too many people would have taken me seriously. However, it’s the truth. Indiana is one ...

Chicago Bears Get The Statement Victory Everyone Told Them They Didn’t Have

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

They said the Chicago Bears had a solid record but hadn't beaten anyone in getting there. And by they I mean just about everyone, including me. We've all basically been silenced. The Bears are now 8-3 and they were probably legit before. They definitely are now after jumping out to a ...

Nevada Coach Chris Ault on Boise State: “They Were Lucky” To Be In The Game

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I watch football like it's my job. Mostly because it is my job. I've seen countless games this season, whether live and in person or on TV. None of them were better than the Boise State-Nevada game on Friday. I just wish more people could have stayed up to see ...

Nothing Is Funny To Derek Anderson, But His Rant Is Funny To Just About Everyone

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Is there anything funnier than a post-game rant in the NFL? The answer is yes, a post-game rant in the NFL by a bad quarterback who just played a horrendous game on national television. So when Derek Anderson went off on Monday night, it was likely funnier than whatever joke it ...

Matt Cassel and Dwayne Bowe Continue Ridiculous Run

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Matt Cassel certainly didn't flourish in his first season in Kansas City. Considered a prize pickup after his run in place of Tom Brady with the Patriots, Cassel threw for 16 touchdowns, but matched that with 16 interceptions. He wound up with a quarterback rating under 70. This season has been ...

Darrell Bevell on the Vikings’ Mindset During Their Week 12 Win Over Washington: “I would say it was more relaxed…”

Monday, November 29th, 2010

It wasn't necessarily pretty, but the Minnesota Vikings did enough to win on Sunday in Leslie Frazier's first game as interim head coach. The Vikings defeated the Washington Redskins 17-14 thanks to a stout defensive performance, a renewed commitment to the running game, and a time-consuming game-clinching drive in the ...
