Saints vs. Bills: 6 and (Stills the) 1

brees stills

I'd like to thank the New Orleans Saints for deciding not to do what I had feared, which is make me sweat it out fresh off the bye week against an inferior team like the Bills. Yes the Bills are much improved and were expected to put up a fight. But the Saints are better. Waaaay better, in fact. And they were playing at home which is also known as Sean Payton's playground. No one pushes Big Daddy around on his playground. The Saints' defense seemed very well aware of that fact from the very start. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan had his squad were fired up from the first snap. We were relentless with the pass rush, sacking quarterback Thad Lewis four times. He got picked off once … [Read more...]

Eagles Chick’s Week 3 NFL Picks

Note to Eagles fans: the Chiefs are not the Redskins or the Chargers. In fact, although it's early on, their defense is looking outstanding and continued to do so last night. It pained me to watch what they did to my Eagles in Andy Reid's epic return, but I can't say I didn't see it coming. Thanks to Reid, the Chiefs are playing smart, disciplined football on either side of the ball (kind of like the Eagles used to do in Andy's early years in Philly). So yeah, the Chiefs won. Big woop. Nothing to see here. And now...the rest of the matchups: Texans at Ravens - Both of these teams are struggling more than I expected them to so far, but I give the edge to the Texans, who are at … [Read more...]

As a reward to all you fans who faithfully support your team and spend your hard-earned money on season tickets and paraphernalia, the NFL has finally found a way to repay you for your loyalty, should your squad make it to the big game this season. They're hiking up the price of already ridiculously expensive Super Bowl tickets. Oh you reaaally shouldn't have! According to an article in the Wall St. Journal, the league is fed up with scalpers and third-party ticket websites making enormous profits off of Super Bowl ticket resales. So, instead of finding a way to stick it to the resellers, the league will instead stick it to the little guy. Here's the latest from the WSJ: According … [Read more...]

NFL Wives Club: Kristin Cavallari Debuts Fashion Line

We came to know her as "that beeyatch from Laguna Beach." Then, she evolved into "that beeyatch from The Hills." Following a few stints in bad movies and on bad TV shows, Kristin Cavallari has finally found a role we can get behind: designer of fabulous female football fan apparel. It's a venture that makes sense, given her innate fashion sense and the fact that she's literally married to the game. Cavallari is the wife of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. She recently unveiled her new line, in partnership with Junk Food Clothing, at New York Fashion Week. As for what inspired her to design female fan apparel, she says: "Football is a huge part of my life and fashion is a huge … [Read more...]

Evolution of the End Zone Dance

touchdown dance

Remember back in the day when football players could have fun after they scored a touchdown? I think they called it something like a "touchdown dance"? From T.O.'s pom-pom shake with a cheerleader to Joe Horn's "Can You Hear Me Now" moment, touchdown dances were often times the best part of the game. So leave it to Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake to pay tribute to this relic in football history with a little something they call: "The Evolution of End Zone Dancing". … [Read more...]
