  • Behind the Back Over the Head Touchdown Pass Actually Works

    Behind the Back Over the Head Touchdown Pass Actually Works

    The art of performing a successful trick play can come down to deception as much as any specific execution on the field.  In this case, both were crucial to the success of the play.  And what a play it was. Reminiscent of the behind the back basket scored by a minor league basketball player recently, […]

  • 2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 10

    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 […]

  • Fantasy Football: Week 11 Waiver Wire

    Fantasy Football: Week 11 Waiver Wire

    In order to be successful in your fantasy league, you will need to be on top of your waiver wire. Knowing which players are available, and of those, which have value is an important part of building a winning team as the season goes on. It can be difficult to identify such players, and that […]

  • Fantasy Football: TPS Monday Afternoon Quarterback (Week 10)

    Fantasy Football: TPS Monday Afternoon Quarterback (Week 10)

    Maybe the Colts and Saints just were not meant to lose any games this season.  That is what it is beginning to look like as we round up week ten of the 2009 NFL season.  Week after week now it seems like New Orleans will do anything it can to make their games as interesting […]

  • Jamar Wall’s Hit On Zac Robinson Was A Triple KO

    Jamar Wall’s Hit On Zac Robinson Was A Triple KO

    Oklahoma State Cowboys football games have provided their fair share of big hits thus far this year.  Unfortunately, they always seem to be on the receiving end of them. Earlier in the season it was wideout Justin Blackmon getting laid out over the middle by Georgia’s Reshad Jones.  This time it was their standout quarterback […]

  • Titans Owner Bud Adams Fires Off A Two-Fingered Celebratory Salute

    Titans Owner Bud Adams Fires Off A Two-Fingered Celebratory Salute

    In the current NFL, commissioner Roger Goodell may seem like the Czar of anti-fun, but there are still plenty of great ways for both players and fans to celebrate touchdowns and victories.  Chad Ochocinco, for example, prefers the intrusive visiting player Lambeau Leap, which is likely to be met with some unexpected gestures from angry […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 11/15/09 – Chris Johnson

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/15/09 – Chris Johnson

    After coming out of their bye week and beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-13, Titans’ running back Chris Johnson said he believed his team could run the table in their remaining ten games and turn an 0-6 start into a 10-6 finish.  Johnson had just completed a game in which he earned 228 yards on the […]

    The Dangers Of Indoor Fireworks – Patriots vs. Colts

    There were plenty of fireworks going off at Lucas Oil Stadium as the New England Patriots were in town to visit the undefeated Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night.  While the 35-34 air show put on by Tom Brady and Peyton Manning may have been great for many fantasy owners (and bad for many others), it […]

  • TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 10

    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 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 […]

    Fantasy Football: Week 10 Waiver Wire Watch

    In order to be successful in your fantasy league, you will need to be on top of your waiver wire.

  • Jared Allen Loves Mullets and Extra Mayo

    Jared Allen Loves Mullets and Extra Mayo

    Jared Allen is not the most likable guy in the NFL, but you can’t argue with the results he’s getting on the field.  As a crucial part of a great Vikings defense this season, he already has 10.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles through only 8 games and doesn’t seem to be slowing down.  So […]

  • 2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 9

    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 […]

    Bounce Pass in High School Football Game Goes For TD (Video)

    What some might consider the greatest trick play in sports history (I am one of those) occurred in a high school football game recently.  This beats out the Oil City miracle by a mile.  Brad Heap of Mountain View High throws a pass into the dirt that one hops right into the hands of wide […]
