    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 14

    The NFL sucks this season. As a fan we’ve been treated as usual (New York/Philadelphia was like a Seagal movie, and I looooove Seagal), but as far as quality teams go, the talent is scarce. It’s weird that in a year the MVP award could go to a perrennial QB candidate like Peyton Manning, a […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 14

    Week 13 set us back a bit as our picks went 1-3.  The Patriots got off to a great start, but an early 14-0 lead was not enough as their late collapse would lead to a 22-21 loss.  The 49ers were equally disappointing, surrendering a late field goal to the Seahawks which would eventually be […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 13

    What happened to good old fashioned running of the football? Week 13 of the 2009 NFL season saw just a single running back receiver over 30 carries (Cedric Benson) and shockingly, utilising that talent won Cincinnati their matchup. Why do Jaksonville refuse to use MJD until the fourth? Why isn’t the hottest player in the […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 13

    Week 12 was a tough one for us as our picks went 1-2-1. The Vikings were our lone bright spot as they handed a beating to the Bears, much like we expected.  The Arizona Cardinals also looked like they would come through until Vince Young brought back some of his Rose Bowl magic to win […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 12

    Week 12 and Thanksgiving are the beginning of the end for the NFL regular season, and whilst there have been very few standout franchises in 2009 – actually there has been exactly three – there has been a whole lot of mediocrity and inconsistency which has left us with a playoff race consisting of an […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 12

    Week 11 will be forever known as the week we moved above the .500 mark, thanks to a 2-1-1 record.  Our underdog picks were perfect as the Redskins kept it close the entire game, holding the lead throughout most of it before allowing a late touchdown pass to the Cowboys.  And the Titans, as we said, […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 11

    Welcome to week 11, the last bend before the mad dash down the home straight of the NFL season, destination playoffsville, population…? Well we know who isn’t getting there (read: Browns and Lions), but with the NFC really sucking right now it’s a wide open race. On paper, with just a single game separating the […]

  • NFL: “The Vince Young-Referee High-Five Never Really Happened”

    NFL: “The Vince Young-Referee High-Five Never Really Happened”

    At the conclusion of the Monday Night Football game between the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans, cameras caught Titans quarterback Vince Young exchanging a high-five with referee Jerome Boger.  This image has since made its way around the country as NFL fans continue to question why a ref had engaged in a celebratory gesture […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 11

    Last week was not a successful one, but it was not a failure either as we maintained our .500 record by going  2-2.  The New Orleans Saints put up a disappointing effort against the St. Louis Rams, despite winning the game, and the Denver Broncos were doomed once Chris Simms was forced to come in […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 10

    Best keep a low profile if you’re an NFL calibre running back right now, because the season reaper is out and hunting for victims. First to crock himself Sunday was The Burner Turner who torched his way to 111 yards on 9 touches before a right ankle sprain forced him out of Atlanta’s faltering offense […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 10

    It took us half of the season, but I think it is safe to say we may finally have things under control after our second consecutive 3-1 week.  The Green Bay Packers were an enormous disappointment, losing the game outright to a lowly Bucs team, but not even that was enough to dampen our spirits […]

    Chad Ochocinco Creates New NFL Rules

    Chad Ochocinco has always been a source of funny quotes, great touchdown celebrations, and all-around clowning.  He also was an excellent NFL wide receiver.  Until last season that is, where he had a terrible season.  While he was moping about that, he stayed away from the spotlight much more than in prior seasons. Thankfully for […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 9

    The NFL rulebook isn’t revisionist. You can’t change it on a whim, so you may as well learn it. That would of been a novel idea for some teams in week 9, or as it’s better known ‘the week of the flag’; Sunday boasted a Falcon/Redskin melee, a Tommie Harris ejection and multiple teams penalty-ing […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 9

    Finally it happened!  We had the breakout week we were looking for as our picks were an impressive 3-1 during week 8.  Had the Cardinals not tanked against the Panthers in an unexpected turn of events, we would have made it a clean sweep, but I guess you can’t have it all.  We were, however, […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 8

    However tempting it was to copy and paste the word Favre for the next 50 words I – brace yourself mainstream press – thought that other things went on between the end of week 7 and now, the bombshell aftermath of week 8. Okay, bombshell aftermath is a little strong but there are some teams […]
