After going 12-4 last week, things get a little tougher in week 3. One game that has my interest is Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay. Both teams are 2-0, which we expected  from the Steelers, but the Bucs are reminding many of the upstart Bucs that blossomed under Tony Dungy. A young vibrant defense and a unheralded leader in quarterback Josh Freeman has things looking up in Tampa.

Kenny McKinley was a wide receiver with the Denver Broncos on injured reserve. He may have been known only to a few outisde of Denver and his home state of South Carolina.

NFL Questions And (Maybe Some) Answers For Week 2

Posted in Blogroll, Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Donavan McNabb, Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick, Ron Glover, Vince Young on September 21st, 2010 by Ronald Glover

 

Josh Freeman

Yesterday was a pretty eventful day in the NFL, Mark Sanchez grew up in front of our eyes as the Jets put it on Brady and the Pats. Josh Freeman continues his steady progression. Michael Vick made his first start in almost four years and looked good enough to make Andy Reid’s nights a little less comfortable Meanwhile in Chocolate City Donovan McNabb had a banner day but ended up on the short end of a 30-27 shootout with Matt Schaub and the Houston Texans. Despite these goings on, I still have some questions and maybe some answers going into Week 3.

Ron Glover’s Week 2 NFL Predictions

Posted in Blogroll, NFC, NFC East, NFL, NFL Live on September 19th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

The New York Jets welcome the New England Patriots into the new and improved Meadowlands. It may be cornerback Darrelle Revis’ week to eat his words. This summer Revis referred to Pats wide receiver Randy Moss as a “slouch”. Well, Moss was kind enough to remind Revis that the “slouch” will be in town this weekend. This on the field encounter is only one battle within the war for supremacy in the AFC East.

Why Not Michael Vick?

Posted in Andy Reid, Blogroll, Kevin Kolb, Michael Vick, Mike Vick, Philadelphia Eagles on September 16th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

 Michael Vick Michael Vick #7 of the Philadelphia Eagles warms up before a game against the Green Bay Packers during the NFL season opener at Lincoln Financial Field on September 12, 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Michael Vick Project in Philadelphia has ended – The Michael Vick Experience looks like it may be up and running again (for a limited time only). Andy Reid is faced with his second biggest decision as head coach, while the Donovan McNabb trade will be questioned for the forseeable future, failure to nip this brewing quarterback controversy in the bud could cost Reid more than a few games.

Why Being a Man And a Feminist Are Impossible In Sports

Posted in Blogroll on September 15th, 2010 by Okori Wadsworth

Let’s be real about something. In a lot of ways, what the byline of this piece tells you is more about you than me. It is a considered truth that being a feminist in sports is terribly complicated. But it has never been harder than it was this past week.

Full Disclosure before I go any farther: I have never been in a locker room, and I have no desire to be. But just because of that it does not mean that I am going to stand idly by while sexual harrassment is explained away with a combination of defenses each more implausible and utterly ridiculous than the last one.

Monday Night Football Preview

Posted in Baltimore Ravens, Blogroll, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, San Diego Chargers on September 13th, 2010 by Ronald Glover

If tonight’s card were a world championship fight card tonight’s late game between the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs would be out of the way long before the main event that is the Baltimore Ravens against the New York Jets. The war of words between Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and former Ravens Defensive Coordinator Rex Ryan will be settled tonight.

I would pay an extra 20 bucks on my cable bill to hear these two miked up tonight.

I want to begin by apologizing for not finishing up the Power Rankings and offering my Week 1 predictions, I lost my stepfather last weekend and attended his homegoing in South Carolina this weekend. I was so deep in the sticks that I had no cellular or wireless service. I missed every game because I was on the road. Thanks to Okori for filling in on short notice.

NFL Week 1 Predictions From An Odd Angle.

Posted in blog roll, Blogroll, blogrolll on September 12th, 2010 by Okori Wadsworth

Let’s get this out: I don’t really watch the NFL. Like I know who people are and I know what the basic stories are. But I don’t really have the kind of knowledge I need. So I’m going to do what I do best -pick based on other reasons. Maybe I’ll pick against your team because your entire fanbase are a collection of obnoxious goons. Who can say?
