    …A historical perspective on blown leads in NFL games One of my favorite contrarians I follow on twitter is Scott Kacsmar. He is from Indy and loves the Colts and Peyton Manning. He violently hates Tom Brady and can usually be found digging up reasons as to why Brady is not the GOAT. That point…

    931 524 Ravenous128

    (attempts to sound excited) With a wealth of prospective free agent information having been added to most draftnik websites and a smattering of mock drafts popping up, it appears the NFL offseason is officially in full swing.  Lots of formerly locked-down (in some cases legendary) players are suddenly without teams, so determining their direction right…

    It’s the postseason!!!  Yay!!! Why aren’t you celebrating?  Oh, right.  There’s no meaningful football being played. With all apologies to the XFL, American football will always be associated with the NFL and will remain embedded as such in the minds of every fan who appreciates the game being played at its highest level.  Although these…

    K1 PRESENTS: Point / Counterpoint – A SB LIV Retrospective

    960 954 chriskeal

    Well, Superbowl LIV has come and gone. What was seen by many faithful as a dynasty beginning is now in question. Adusoron is gone, perhaps for good. The 49er fan base is in disarray. Tribe might be back to his old ways, and if that is the case than truly no one is safe. Outside…

    Broken! A Steelers Postmortem

    1024 677 Ravenous128

    I didn’t choose the term “broken” lightly. To be sure, the 8-8 Steelers suffered their share of injuries during the 2019 season; none more consequential than the Week 1 loss of starting QB Ben Roethlisberger for the season, courtesy of a torn elbow on his throwing arm.  Ben’s normally prodigious elbow single-handedly deprived the Steelers…

    Befuddled! A Bengals Postmortem

    880 495 Ravenous128

    The Bengals are back, baby. No, not the Carson Palmer or Andy Dalton-led Bengals, which both managed a playoff appearance every other year and an occasional AFCN title.  No, we’re referring to the illustrious David Klingler or Akili Smith eras, which featured a bizarre willingness of the front office to embrace and stand by mediocre…
