Voodoo's postseason record: Against the spread: 4-4 Straight up: 6-2 Over/Under: 4-4   Mike Procopio's postseason record: Against the spread: 4-4 Straight up: 5-3 Over/Under: 4-4   Sunday January 22nd @ 3:05pm ET Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons (-4.5) Over/Under: 61 Temperature: Indoor Wind: Indoor   I've been going back & forth all week with the outcome of this game, and as much as I want to see the Packers advance to the Super...
Remember the dialogue between Rocky and Paulie getting off the plane into a snowy Siberian abyss in Rocky IV? The scene was the perfect foreshadowing for what was about to unfold during the rest of the movie. I picture Belichick and Brady strolling into meetings at Gillette every day this week listening to the “Hearts on Fire” and “Dead...
After suffering through the Wildcard Weekend games, we've been rewarded with three marquee matchups in the Divisional Round — 3 out of 4 ain't too bad. And if you play Fanduel, you might have a reason to tune in to the Houston @ New England game. Mike & I didn't kill it last week on the totals or spreads,...
Congratulations, Mike Angelina, on winning the 2016 VoodooBrown Office Pool. Mike led the pack pretty much all season and went 15-1 in Week 17 to hold off 2-time defending champ Mike Procopio's late season charge. He posted a 168-84 record, which — just like Mike Procopio last year — outperformed most ESPN/Fox/CBS contributors. Well done, Mike. Follow Mike on...
  "Breaking records is not something you expect to do.  That's a sports thing, not a comedy or writing thing." - Louis C.K.   So, Jeff sits down and says to me, "Julio Jones had a day, huh?"  Immediately, the 300 yard club came to mind.  Who are they?  How many NFL receivers have caught balls for that much yardage in a...
  “Youth is wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw   There’s a movement happening in the NFL right now.  One I’m proud to see.  For what seemed like an eternity, I have witnessed what I believed to be a near catastrophic drop in talent at the quarterback position.  Just here in Philadelphia, if you track back to the mid 1980s,...
Remember Fred Savage’s brother in “The Wizard” who would just say “California” and proceed to destroy anyone he played in video games with his eyes closed?  That is what the NFL is becoming in relation to matching coaching wits with Bill Belichick.  He is a mastermind of epic proportions.  The power move of cutting off the NFL logo on...
  “Most people don’t grow up.  Most people age.” – Maya Angelou   When a man reaches 40, he generally heads in one of two directions.  The first involving an inner dialogue about growing up, maturing which can lead to taking life too seriously.  These gentlemen represent the well adjusted, financially responsible, company leaders of the world.  The kind of guys you...
  “Good seasons start with good wins.” – Sparky Anderson   Nine days ago, the general consensus of opinion amongst the 2016 Phiadelphia Eagles fanbase was, “eh.”  Sure, the coaching staff was, for the most part, new.  Even better, the dreck personnel that the previous regime had brought in were all but expunged but there was just something missing.  The future had...
Watching the Patriots wave the middle finger at Roger Goodell will never get old.  Bill, Mr. Kraft, and Jonathan continue to run the Frank Pentangeli power play every time they are asked a question about the quarterback situation or the fines levied by the ego maniac in the corner office at 345 Park Avenue. They play dumb as a fox...
