• Top 10...Bottom 5: Week Fourteen

    There are few sure things in life, but this weekend reminds us that one of those is that the New England Patriots will invariably find their place at the top of the league, as they clinched their 10th straight 10-win season. If you don't have Tom Brady in your top 5 all-time quarterback list, then you clearly don't follow the NFL. Week fourteen was a great week for the NFC East, but for the AFC North..not so much. Also, the Bengals choke, the Steelers croak, the Giants spoke, and the Cardinals were a joke. Here we go:


    1. New England-Ladies and gentlemen, if we could quiet down a little, it seems as though the folks from New England have something to say.
    2. Denver-It's a damn shame the Broncos didn't get a better QB.
    3. San Francisco-Kaepernick, Aldon Smith, Patrick Willis, Vernon Davis..this team is loaded with freaks.
    4. Houston-Defense needs to stop with their Raiders impersonation.
    5. Green Bay-They haven't looked great, but have still one 7 of 8. If they don't get Rodgers killed, they're dangerous.
    6. New York-The Giants couldn't possibly be more inconsistent, which means....well, they're destined to win the Super Bowl.
    7. Atlanta-Matt Ryan's MVP candidacy disappeared faster than Michael Turner's dinner.
    8. Washington-Washington is currently the home of the world's most scrutinized knee.
    9. Seattle-The Arizona Cardinals now have a restraining order against the Seahawks after that beating.
    10. Baltimore-If defense wins championships, the Ravens are screwed.


    Indianapolis-What's happening in Indy is simply amazing.
    Minnesota-As mentioned elsewhere on this site, Adrian Peterson deserves more MVP buzz.


    28. Buffalo-What a well-designed game plan that included a whole 7 carries for their biggest gamebreaker.
    29. Jacksonville-They forgot rule #1 of playing the Jets: Make Mark Sanchez throw and you'll win.
    30. Oakland-"The Black Hole" no longer refers to the rowdy section of fans, and refers to the franchise in general.
    31. Kansas City-Jamaal Charles must have beat his dog in a past life.
    32. Arizona-The Cardinals are to Matt Schaub's groin as the rest of the league is to Ndamukong Suh.


    Cam Newton-It's hard to hate on someone when they're doing things like that.
    Tom Brady-Surgically picked apart the Houston defense.
    Adrian Peterson-He's not human, and you won't convince me otherwise.
    Nick Foles-Great game, and more importantly, a win.


    Arizona Cardinals-There aren't enough words to describe how badly they were dominated.
    Bengals hands-The entire team was possessed by the spirit of Terrell Owens.
    Jake Locker-Made throwing errors, and mental errors that cost them the game.

      Not the Giants! Please, anyone else but the G-men against my Pats in the SB. My heart can't take it again (she says nervously before the potential preview game NE/SF on SNF).

      Part of me is scared silly by SEA, squeaking in with a WC and running the table. Yeah, AZ sucks, but I learned never to underestimate those Seachickens.

      I'm enjoying the squabble surrounding MVP & Comeback POY. As long as Peyton gets one and AP gets the other, I suspect most will be satisfied. Besides, Mr. Hubble says that awards are for people with self esteem issues. Who's Mr. Hubble?

      Thanks Vance for another great article.

      yep, Goat of the Week: 4 drops by Bengals WR's on 3rd down, including a would-be touchdown in a one point loss.

    Absolutely. That was a completely crap slide to and if I was an ump he would have been ejected for it. Go to last post

    BTW, I assume you were calling this a bush league slide back in 2012 when Matt Holiday did this.

    The point is that there are a lot of BS slides that baserunners get away for the purpose of trying to break up a double play. The purpose of Utley's slide was timed to break up a double play. ... Go to last post

    This is also my thoughts. Had he started his slide like a normal runner does and takes Tejada out, no issue at all from me. He was pretty much past the bad when he started and it was clear he wasn't... Go to last post

    This is also part of my thought. If Utley plays tonight I can all but guarantee you a brawl will ensue because: 1. He will get drilled. Absolutely no doubt and I'm not 100% sure it will be just the... Go to last post

    The issue is not takeout slides for me; the issue is where Utley began his slide. These images don't really address that. Though I have no doubt that similar things have happened before and they... Go to last post
