Indianapolis Colts v New England Patriots

Divisional Saturday

Let’s rock and roll. Saints (+7.5) at Seahawks – I think all four games this weekend have more storyline than substance. There are harbingers of doom on the Seattle end of things: the fact that they have to beat a really good AND well-coached team twice in six weeks (even if both are at home),…

NFL: AFC Wildcard Playoff-San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday Recap

0-4 Wild Card Weekend. Hey, that takes talent. D-D-D-Dalton Look-Be-Hind-You! Life was indeed like a hurricane for young Andrew Dalton Sunday afternoon, committing three of his team’s four turnovers in what was truly the only no-show of the weekend. Think about that. 8 teams on the docket this weekend and 7 of them showed up.…

Wild Card Sunday

Let’s try this again. 0-2. At least I got the O/U right on both to break you even. Chief Complaint Continuing the SPTKF tradition of predicting exactly how a game will play out and losing anyway, the Chiefs became the first team in NFL history to blow a 28 point lead in a playoff game…

Wild Card Saturday

In chronological order! Chiefs (PK) at Colts – By simple track record, this game overwhelmingly favors the Colts in all the key categories that we’ve seen deep playoff teams exhibit in recent years. They have the best player on the field (Andrew Luck), they’re at home, and they trounced the Chiefs in Kansas City earlier…

Ahmad Bradshaw fell to the 7th…

Week 17

145-94-1 No social commentary fat on this steak. Just lean, mean football analysis. It’s crunch time. The SPTKF MVP Candidates (SPTKF MVPs – 2006 Drew Brees, 2007 Tom Brady, 2008 Chad Pennington, 2009 Peyton Manning, 2010 Tom Brady, 2011 Eli Manning, 2012 Adrian Peterson) Tom Brady – Bills at Patriots New England clinches a first-round…

Week 16, The Hot Seat, Third Place, Neighborhood Burglary Gone Awry, and The Texas Tornado

136-87-1. 6-10 last week. Fantasy Post-Mortem Like many people on the wrong end of the five-touchdown performance from Jamaal Charles this past Sunday, my fantasy season, which really was otherwise headed towards winning the league outright with not much opposition, experienced sudden death. A 37-point performance wouldn’t have killed you, Jamaal. Irregardlessly, my third place…
