And then everyone lost their shit (Source: nfl.si.com)
In the wake of Seattle’s Monday Night shellacking of the Saints, it had become abundantly clear that Russell Wilson had grown more in his second year as a starting quarterback than RGIII, Colin Kaepernick, or maybe even Andrew Luck.
In perhaps his most memorable performance to date, Wilson went 22 for 30 for 310 yards, 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. On top of that he also ran for 47 yards and seemed in complete control of the game from start to finish. If at the end of the game the ESPN postgame crew had said, “This was a statement game for Russell” or “He has positioned himself as one of the best quarterbacks in football” I could have agreed with all of that.
Instead, they took it a bit too far. Continue reading
For much of our readership, the long weekend started and ended with football. There were important games, amazing individual performances, and in Mike Tomlin’s case one of the most bizarre head coach related incidents in years. Let’s do this, Jerk-a-holics!
Decker’s spike here was a tighter spiral than some of Alex Smith’s passes.

Good morning, internet. My apologies for missing last week, but I was a busy boy. I trust you were able to say shitty things about famous people amongst yourselves, and the void I left in your lives was not too terrifying. Let’s do this!
If the season stopped today, Aaron Rodgers would not be in the playoffs…and this guy would be.
A Word on the AFC Wildcard Picture
And the word is “gross”.
While the Kansas City Chiefs would be a very respectable wildcard selection, the second wildcard spot is…a little less glamorous. The Jets, Dolphins, Ravens, Steelers, Titans and Chargers all sport a 5-6 record. All of those teams have one thing in common: I had written all of them off at one point or another this season. But here’s the thing about sucking, it doesn’t hurt you so much if almost everyone sucks just as much as you. Continue reading

Not even gonna wear a tie to court?
There’s little doubt (unless you are in charge of Yahoo Sports’ Power Rankings, in which case you suck) that the Kansas City Chiefs belong at the top of the list of the NFL’s great teams. The only remaining undefeated team goes into this week with a 9-0 record and one of the scariest defenses in the league. They bring their unblemished record into Mile High Stadium this weekend to face the Denver Broncos, but before they do they must spend a day in our stuffy made up court room as we put them on trial. The Chiefs are accused of being a fraud, and the prosecution will try to make the case that they will lose to Denver on Sunday. Nate Raby will lead that prosecution, and Ben Van Iten will lead the defense. These are their closing statements. Continue reading
The season has a little over half left, the term “playoff picture” is starting to get busted out, and both the Jaguars and Bucs won a football game – so what have I decided to write about today?
The most uninspiring exhibition game in pro sports! It’s the Pro-Bowl!
I have actually gone out of my way to cover the Pro Bowl in year’s past, creating a drinking game for the blog and even live tweeting it on multiple occasions.
