A Requiem of the Seattle Seahawks

When the Seattle Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII, I thought we were looking at the next great dynasty. They had a VERY young team at the time. Offensively the Seahawks were led by a second-year QB in Russell Wilson, and Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch toting the rock out of the backfield. Defensively, not only was…

Man, Was I Wrong About the Eagles

There was a reason why I didn’t write a Super Bowl preview for this blog last week. I didn’t think the Philadelphia Eagles had a chance in hell in Super Bowl LII. I thought that QB Nick Foles will turn into the backup pumpkin he was when he realized he was facing the GOAT in…

2018 NFL Preview: Conference Championship

AFC Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots This game was supposed to be Steelers-Patriots, at least that’s the way Pittsburgh saw it.  Instead, the Jaguars have a chance to truly shock the world.

I’m not going to regurgitate all that Seth Wickersham wrote – and…

2018 NFL Playoff Preview: Wildcard Round

The NFL Playoffs are here!  And what better way to kick it off than a wildcard round that features the teams that are responsible for the bizarro world that was the 2017 NFL regular season. The Jacksonville Jaguars were division winners for the first time in several years.  The Los Angeles Coliseum will be hosting…
