This is a strange season indeed. With three weeks remaining in the regular season, only New England and Dallas were guaranteed playoff berths, and only the Patriots had locked up their division. Seattle joined that party after beating the hapless Lambs this past Thursday, but the playoff picture as a whole is still wide open. […]

This has to be one of the strangest first quarters of football in NFL history. Usually the upsets begin to subside after the first two weeks, and the teams that should win begin to find ways to do just that. And in the AFC, things are playing out pretty much as expected, for the most […]


Picking winners in the first week of an NFL season is usually about as easy as guessing how many marbles can fit into a five-gallon jug. The best you can do is offer up an educated guess and hope you’re not too far off. Well this season is no different. There were several upsets along […]


I’ve been taking the back seat for nearly a year now, listening to everyone else spout their opinions about the Arizona Cardinals, describing with passion why they didn’t think the Cardinals have been for real, boldly predicting that the Seattle Seahawks would “flip the switch” any minute now and take back the NFC West, a […]


Wow, what an off-season. I can’t remember the last time I’d seen so many players taken out of service before the season even started. And I’m only talking about the arrests and suspensions!

The Arizona sports fan, not the bandwagon fan, but the true Arizona sports fan, has always had to endure frustrations and heartbreaks. That’s nothing new. After all, there are scores of thousands of people that now reside in this great state that have moved from their beloved but unbearable home states. That’s why it is […]


I don’t know about you, but in my humble opinion, the worst time of the year for sports fans is the two weeks between the Conference Finals and the Super Bowl. Why, you may ask?  Excellent question.  Thanks for asking! The reason is we have to endure thirteen days of every reporter in the world, […]


Like most sports nuts (not just fans, but nuts), this is my favorite time of the year.  College basketball is in full swing, the NHL is just past the halfway point and that other league (the NBA?) is right behind them.  But most importantly, we’re down to the final four in the NFL. Yet, more […]
