Super Bowl XLIX Is Tom Brady’s Crowning Achievement

Regardless of what happened Sunday night in Glendale, Tom Brady was going to go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game.

Bill Belichick Delivers Press Conference for the Ages

Bill Belichick has accomplished a ton throughout the course of his Hall of Fame coaching career, including 211 regular-season wins, an NFL-record 21 postseason victories and three Super Bowl titles. But on Saturday afternoon, he delivered his magnum opus.

NFL Week 13 Against The Spread Picks – Feast Mode Edition

With all the byes now complete, 80 games remain over the final five weeks of the 2014 football season. Just in time for Thanksgiving, some of the NFL biggest turkeys have brought their act to the buffet table. And then there is the curious tale of the NFC South.

NFL Against The Spread Picks Week 7: Cinderella Edition

Normally I do not cross into the baseball world while doing my weekly football piece, but I have to give props to the Kansas City Royals. I did predict them to make the playoffs (at 89-73, thank you very much), but their historic run through the postseason was even beyond my expectation.

Fantasy Football: Lingering Questions for Week 5

Four games is probably a bit too quick to judge a team, but it’s a good sample size to get an idea of how a team might be using different players this season. For some, there are lingering questions revolving around age, health and future with a team, each of which might have an effect on that player’s fantasy performance.

Let’s take a look at some of those questions out there heading into Week 5.

Kurt’s Annual NFL Prediction Spectacular

Now that fantasy drafts have been completed (I think), I can get down to prognosticating the final win-loss records for all 32 NFL teams for 2014.

People continue to warn me against posting such predictions, since it only opens one up to ridicule come December.

All of this is true. But what is the fun of not making educated guesses and a writer putting his or her rear end on the line? Weather forecasters make a living off this daily.

Against the Spread Picks, NFL Divisional Round

After a lame 1-3 showing in the opening week of the postseason, it is time to spice things up for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Along with my regular ATS pick, I will also do over-under picks for each of the four games.

Week 17 NFL Against the Spread Picks – Team MVP Edition

Week 17 will be more exciting than usual.

There are still four playoff spots up for grabs, with just one team locked into a playoff position and likely resting its regulars. The end result will be one day, 16 games, and a lot of drama.

Did Tom Brady purposely avoid shaking hands with Cam Newton?

I guess I saw the end of the game a little differently last night. I thought Tom Brady did a classless thing by avoiding shaking hands with Cam Newton after the game.

Tom Brady improves to 5-2 against Ben Roethlisberger

In an entertaining game Sunday afternoon, Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to a 55-31 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brady did it with the help of receivers Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson, and also got a boost from the return of tight end Rob Gronkowski.

David Ortiz ready to match Boston legends Tom Brady and Larry Bird

If the Boston Red Sox win the 2013 World Series, David Ortiz is almost a sure bet to be named the series’ MVP. And with good reason. So far in this year’s edition of the Fall Classic, the man known as Big Papi has 11 hits in 15 at bats for a ridiculous batting average of .733.

Ortiz has never been the World Series MVP before, but if he took home the award this season, along with bringing home his third World Series title, he’d certainly be mentioned among the all-time great athletes in Boston history.

Top 10 NFL MVP candidates heading into Week 7

Make no mistake, the NFL MVP award is Peyton Manning’s to lose. But he isn’t the only candidate out there.

New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s reaction to a game-winning touchdown pass by Tom Brady was priceless.

New York Jets vs. New England Patriots: preview of Week 2 showdown

Tom Brady versus Rex Ryan to kickoff Week 2 of the 2013 NFL season. For as typical as that will be, Bill Belichick gets to face a rookie quarterback for the second consecutive week in Geno Smith. Given the Week 1 outcomes, this AFC East showdown won’t be a blowout either way as New England underachieved […]

2013 NFL Predictions: AFC East Preview

Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Tim Tebow! Clearly the rest of the AFC East has no chance of matching the New England Patriots, right?

Not so fast.
