Nfl Playoffs --- First Round Picks

Colts beat Chiefs --- the Chiefs come into this matchup an improved team from last season with a stellar pass rush, but Andrew Luck is adept at moving around in and escaping the pocket. Luck'a creativity outside the pocket and play making ability neutralizes the Kansas City pass rush and allows the Colts to sneak by with a victory....more

Does Troy Polamalu Deserve Another Pro-Bowl?

Troy Polamalu is viewed by many as an elite safety in the NFL and in some ways he is an extremely good play maker but the same instinct that makes him a great play maker also makes him susceptible to fakes, misdirections, and locking on to the quarterback. I believe these faults are consistently overlooked by NFL analyst. Here are three examples of mental lapses and over aggression by Troy Polamalu. Although these examples are only from the Patriots matchup earlier in the season they are examples of the common type of mistakes made by Polamalu on a weekly basis...more

Was Payton Manning A Good Investment?

The 2012 off-season was a bit like the hokey-pokey.  You put Manning in, you take Tebow out, you put Sanchez in and shake it all about.  You do the NFL Hokey Pokey…. Well you get the idea.  In case you missed it, the Denver Broncos, the team that drafted Tim Tebow last year, crowning him the future of the Denver franchise, negotiated to get Peyton Manning.  It was an interesting choice considering Manning sat out the entire 2011 season with a serious enough neck injury that, if reinjured, would end his career....more
