Fantasy Forecast: Week 13

Tom Brady The Colts don’t do anything particularly well on defense, so Brady is a safe bet for 300 yards and 2-3 scores. The only thing that limits his upside this week is the fact that the Colts won’t score much to force the Pats to go to the air. If I were truly desperate […]

Kickin’ It with 18 to 88

This week, instead of a formal written Q&A, Rick and Stephen took some time to have Colts blogger, Nate Dunleavy (of Bloguin’s 18 to 88) on their Blog Talk Radio show.  They discussed all the hot topics surrounding the Colts and touched on this week’s game.  Have a listen below. Listen to internet radio with […]

Week 13 NFL Pick ‘Em

Last week, I did something that I thought was impossible. Oh. And. Seven. That’s right, I went all 2008 Detroit Lions with my picks last week.  And remember, even though Rick managed to go 7-0, it’s actually much harder to whiff on every single pick.  After all, we are trying to straight-up pick the winners […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 12

After a wild Thanksgiving Weekend, we have some new faces in the Top 12 and a lot of swapping up and down near the top of the board.  This week #6 plays #8 and #7 plays #9, so the middle of the board will be the place to keep your eye on.  Also a loss […]

Opening Lines: Week 12

The Patriots opened as 20.5-point favorites as they prepare to host the Colts in Week 13. If you’re looking for a 20-point favorite, you’ll usually need to dip into the college football schedule during homecoming week. The Pats saw these sorts of lines on a regular basis in the 2007 season, but this is a […]

Week 12 Risers and Fallers: Welker and Branch a nightmare for the Dream Team

A month ago, Julian Edelman looked like a man without a job. On Sunday, he was the employee of the month. The former college quarterback who went undrafted out of Kent State has evolved into Bill Belichick’s newest version of Troy Brown. The speedy, long-haired slot receiver/punt returner has filled in for an injury-depleted secondary […]

Game Preview: Patriots @ Eagles

On Sunday, the Patriots (7-3) will try to extend their two game winning streak in the City of Brotherly Love when they face the 4-6 Philadelphia Eagles. New England is on a short week, but coming off a dominant 2nd half in a 34-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Monday night. The Patriots struggled […]

Fantasy Forecast: Week 12

Tom Brady The Eagles do a good job of limiting opposing WRs, but that is no reason to bench Brady. Expect the Pats to feature the TEs and RBs out of the backfield, allowing Brady to put up respectable numbers. Something close to 260 yards and 2-3 scores. BenJarvus Green-Ellis/Danny Woodhead/Shane Vereen/Kevin Faulk/Stevan Ridely Figuring […]

Q&A Session with Eagles Eye Blog

  Once again, it’s time for our weekly Q&A session with a blogger who covers the Patriots’ upcoming opponent.  Up this week is Thomas Jackson from Eagles Eye.  Here’s what Tom had to say about the Eagles and Pats leading up to Sunday’s game. 1. Who should be the starting QB for the Eagles? Is […]

Week 12 NFL Pick ‘Em

I’m currently 3 games over .500 in a straight-up picks game.  Pathetic, I know.  The leader is currently 25 games over .500.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.   I am in direct opposition to Stephen in 6 of 7 contests.  The sad thing is, even if I go 7-0, I would still have only cut […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 11

The quicker they rise, the quicker they fall.  The Giants, who had a meteoric rise from off the board to the #2 spot in a matter of weeks, have plummeted 8 spots following their loss to Philly.  With games looming against New Orleans and Green Bay, they may not be long for the Top 12.  […]

Opening Lines: Week 12

The Patriots opened as 4.5-point favorites as they travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in Week 12.   As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I thought it’d be an appropriate time to list all of the things I’m thankful for as a Patriots fan. I’m thankful we’re 7-3 and have a very good chance […]

Game Preview: Patriots vs. Chiefs

The New England Patriots showed the world last Sunday night why they are still the team to beat in the AFC East. Now, they have a great opportunity after their win against the Jets Sunday night to finish the year with the best record in the conference. Nobody has less than 3 losses in the […]

Week 11 NFL Pick ‘Em

Stick a fork in me.  I’m done.  Last week was my shot at redemption in this game, but I went down hard, whiffing on my Buffalo, Detroit, and Tampa picks.  Had I nailed those games, I’d have cut my deficit in half.  Still, on the flip-side, if I had gone with the crowd, I’d still […]
