Review: Myers’ Brady vs Manning

Brady-Manning HandShake USA Today

I recently bought Gary Myers book Brady vs Manning and read it in a day.  Overall I liked it very much.  My one criticism would be that at times it felt like a centralized arena of things we already knew:  Things from the Brady 6, Belichick football life, the head to head stuff between Brady […]

In just 13 days 3 of my top 10 QB’s have died (Big Ben, Brees, Romo) and this list already needs a shake up.  Before we get to the top 10 here are some thoughts around the league… In the AFC the Patriots are looking like the heavy favorites to play in Super Bowl 50… however… if […]

My legion of facebook followers (who don’t have my posts blocked) know that I’d like to spit out a Joe’s top 10 QB’s from time to time.  The top 10 isn’t a lifetime achievement award nor is it a future projection.  It is a here and now, these guys are your top 10 QB’s.   […]

Making Some Daily Pigskin Futures

Figured what the hell, let’s take 100 bucks and make some futures bets on the 2015 NFL Season.  I wanted a wide spread and figured right here was a good forum to talk about my (likely losing) bets. Bet #1:  $1 on New York Giants to win Super Bowl.  Winning bet pays +55 I needed […]

Predicting the Surprise Teams

Time to predict who will surprise us in 2015.  Before we get to my choices let’s set expectations for what these teams tend to accomplish when they come out of no where.  Shit, let’s define come out of no where.  I’m not talking 1999 St Louis Rams who came out of no where to the […]

No Playoffs Pool

Oakland-Raiders-fans

I’m not sure about everybody else but I frankly can’t join enough football pools.  The main thing I prefer is a wide spread.  I’m in four fantasy football leagues for money and I really value that they are four very different leagues with unique rules.  You got your Dynasty leagues, redrafts, auctions, etc.  Nothing is alike and […]

Where Does Rodgers Rank?

2011-10-31-RodgersBelt

Since becoming the starting quarterback of the Packers in 2008, Aaron Rodgers has had one helluva ride.  Presently, in my opinion, he’s both the best quarterback in the league and the quarterback I’d like to have leading my team the next five or six years. Having put in seven years as a starter, it’s time to […]

Retroactively Awarding a 7th Seed

20071217_jackson_2

It is just a matter of time before the NFL adopts a 7th playoff team. I thought it would be this year but the NFL has kicked the can down the road to 2016. I don’t like the idea. I think it is perfect the way it is. However, our billionaire owners need to make […]

Can you win with a dumpster fire QB?

Matt-Cassel-Brace-Hemmelgarn-USA-TODAY-Sports

I don’t recall the site, but someone had a click baity take on the five best NFL Rosters going into 2015.   I also don’t recall the exact order of 1-4 but they were the Seahawks, Colts, Packers, and Cowboys.   I do recall #5: Buffalo Bills By no means do I think the Bills are […]
