Week 4 Notes & Predictions

After this week, we will be a quarter way through the season. While teams begin their bye weeks, there is still plenty of hard-hitting action to watch. Will your team come out on top this week?

NFL Season Preview: NFC East

­The teams I pick to win these Division Predictions are the teams I feel have a better chance of making the playoffs, not the teams I personally like. That’s why it hurts me to make this year’s NFC East prediction. This will be the first season in a long time I’m unable to pick Philadelphia as an outright winner, mainly because of the uncertainty of the Kolb era.

NFL Splinters | Week 15, 2009

I Don’t Believe What I Just Saw!

I can see it now, the new NFL Network commercial. It pans to a diner and instead of Joe Montana cooking, it’s Tiki Barber. The two guys sitting at the counter are looking at the menu when they look up and say: ” So Tiki, help us out. How does crow taste? ” Enough said.. […]
