Last week: 7 (+1) Record: 5-2 San Francisco would be lower if there were more good teams this year. I don’t trust Alex Smith and apparently neither does his coaching staff right now because all he’s doing is checking down. I also don’t expect this running game to continue to average 5.9 yards per carry [...]

Last week: 11 (+1) Record: 5-2 The Vikings’ game last week was pretty boring, but since they’re playing tomorrow night in this week’s Thursday Night game, I’d like to take this opportunity to rant about Thursday Night Football. I hate it. One, it screws up my whole schedule. I like football and writing about football [...]

Last week: 10 (-4) Record: 4-3 I’m dropping Seattle from the playoffs in favor of Philadelphia this week, even though Philadelphia didn’t play. Seattle didn’t look particularly bad against San Francisco or anything, but I think Philadelphia is going to edge them out for that final NFC spot and I just changed my mind. Watching [...]

Last week: 16 (+1) Record: 3-3 Whether or not the Steelers can make the playoffs really depends on when Troy Polamalu gets back. Their win last week was impressive, until you consider that the Bengals are very good. Without him, they’re a pretty average team overall, but with him, they can definitely make the playoffs. [...]

Last week: 18 (+1) Record: 3-3 If the Colts can go into Tennessee and beat the Titans, who, by the way, have the league’s worst points differential, they’d stand at 4-3 in a horrible AFC. Their remaining schedule is as following: vs. Miami, @ Jacksonville, @ New England, vs. Buffalo, @ Detroit, vs. Tennessee, @ [...]

Last week: 18 (-2) With the trade deadline upcoming this week, the Rams have reportedly made several veterans available for trade. It makes sense that one of these would be Steven Jackson because he’s really their only veteran. He’s got the option to opt out of his contract after this season and he’s already splitting [...]

Last week: 23 (+2) Record: 3-4 I’m impressed with the way the Jets have bounced back from losing Darrelle Revis and then getting shut out at home by the 49ers. Since then, they’ve covered in 3 straight games, hanging with the Texans, blowing out the Colts, and hanging with the Patriots in New England. Antonio [...]

Last week: 24 (-4) Record: 3-4 I thoroughly enjoyed last week’s Bills/Titans game between the two worst defenses in the league. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Hasselbeck looked like franchise quarterbacks. Chris Johnson looked like it was 2009. I thought the Bills lost the game in the first half when they settled for a field goal [...]

Last week: 25 (-1) Record: 2-4 So apparently you can shove a receiver out of bounds and that’s not PI, but if he comes back in bounds and catching a game tying touchdown, that’s a penalty. I picked the Buccaneers last week, so obviously I was pissed about that. That and Vincent Jackson going for [...]
