Ravens Steelers TNF Thoughts

Josh Scobee was terrible on TNF

I got two young kids so I’ve turned viewing TNF, SNF, and MNF into an art form: DVR the game with +90 minutes.  This use to be +60 but I missed Jamaal Charles fumble/TD in week 2.  How the hell is 60 mins not enough?  I don’t know. Since it’s DVR’d there’s no pressure to […]

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 […]

Joe’s top 10 QB’s 09/17

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.   […]

2015 Predictions!!!!

AFC East Joe: 1. Patriots 2. Bills 3. Dolphins 4. Jets It’s the new trendy thing for pundits to predict the demise of the Patriots – and shit it will come one day – but 2015 will not be it.   I do however think the AFC East won’t be the punching bag it has been […]

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 […]

Thank You Ray Rice?!

Sarah Thomas

In a move that was as subtle as a Mike Tyson uppercut to the face (what, too soon?), the NFL went and hired its first ever full time female referee this offseason. Welcome to the league Sarah Thomas. Many media outlets and even some players have already called this move exactly what it is: an […]

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 […]
