  “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...
Meaningful football is back, and Tom Brady is probably training on some remote island, slow dancing under the moonlight with Giselle, while she talks to him in languages he doesn’t understand.  Would he rather be barking out audible calls of “Rita, Alpha, and Alabama” from the confines of Gillette?  Absolutely.  But Roger Goodell, Mike Kensil, and the rest of...
Let's face it — if you're not a Panthers fan, then the storyline to Super Bowl 50 is all about Peyton Manning. Winning his final game and retiring with the Lombardi trophy in his hand should silence all of his critics, even with his recent postseason letdowns. He would have a more legitimate spot in the "best QB of all time"...
It's Conference Championship Weekend, and what more could we ask for? Patriots, Broncos, Cardinals, and Panthers — they've been the 4 best teams throughout the year, no question. The ultimate gift: Brady vs Manning, the final chapter. The NFL and football fans alike deserve to see this matchup. The Cards & Panthers are loaded with stand-up guys that you...
  This weekend's playoff matchups are pretty amazing. Every game is intriguing, and every team is worthy of SBL. Sidenote: I really wish the NCAA would instill a 16-team playoff (at least 8 teams). I still can't understand why they haven't figured it out. Four teams voted into a BS bracket is not a "playoff". If human votes can eliminate...
Congratulations, Mike Procopio, on winning the VoodooBrown Office Pool for the second year in a row (comfortably). Mike posted a 162-94 record, which is better than pretty much every pundit from ESPN/Fox/CBS that put their picks on record. He's dialed in, folks — and I'm honored to have him on our team. Follow Mike and read more of his work... Twitter: @mikeprocopio Instagram:...
Remember when we literally murdered the Texans on national TV back in 2012? They were the self-proclaimed “New Kings of the AFC” and even wore those cool varsity letterman jackets into Foxboro to prove it? That is the date of death that should be carved on the Texan’s tombstone. Houston never recovered from that and probably...
“A father makes all the difference.” – Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) in ‘The Natural.’   This coming Monday would be my Dad’s 78th birthday.  It’s almost three years since he’s passed and I’m still hurting.  I hurt every day.  I miss him every day.  Time hasn’t healed jack shit and you know what?  I’m not sure it’s really supposed to. I am...
I took two weeks off from writing the power rankings and coincidentally, it resulted in two Patriots losses. One of them I saw coming, the other, not so much. Brady is still one of the front runners for the league MVP, but the supporting cast around him resemble the zombies of The Walking Dead. Carolina is...
