In my early days at NFL Films, my colleague and friend, Marc, and I used to slump in to a deep depression this time of year.  Not only was the NFL season coming to a close (though that meant more sleep for us), but we were both summer loving beach bums and now that the holidays are over and...
  "If you feel you have a gift, you can't let anyone take that dream away from you." - Darlene Love (one of my all-time favorite quotes)   In just a few months, viewers will say goodbye to the greatest late night host in television history.  David Letterman, it can be argued, has done more for the medium of television and professional...

Week 11 BLBs

Minnesota +3 @ Chicago: The Chicago Bears have reached a hilarious level of apathy that is affecting the entire city. They have been slaughtered in back to back games and seemed to go out of their way to give up over 100 points in them.  What makes it extra great, is that it’s not just that the Bears have quit...
"It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone else." - Marilyn Monroe   As a young kid, I wasn’t the most normal cat in the neighborhood. People who know me now, see me as outgoing, engaging, even somewhat boisterous.  Yet as a little guy, I always tended to keep to myself.  Few things interested me outside of watching sports,...

It wasn’t the blood bath I was hoping for, but the Colts trying to pull off the Annexation of Puerto Rico made it all worthwhile. Indianapolis showed a little bit of pride and finally dropped their nuts after being shoved into a locker in the previous billion meetings. My boys came away with a victory on...
  "You know, you're a real jerk.  You wasted 8 f'n aprons on this guy.  Gotta toughen this kid up." -Tuddy Cicero, "Goodfellas."   Without completely re-hashing all the gory details of the Ray Rice situation, news broke this past week that NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, will, in fact, take the stand in court. This is the, unquestioned, most powerful man in...
  “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” – Abraham Lincoln   Not too long ago, Cousin Nick and I strolled across the parking lot of Lincoln Financial Field during the prime Andy Reid era years.  The Phillies were on the verge of greatness, the Flyers were a contender and the Sixers were, well, they...
Does it get any better than this?  We have the two best teams in football going head to head in the most historic stadium in all the NFL, at the end of November, with two of the top quarterbacks in the league leading their respective teams.  The Patriots and Packers will meet on Sunday in Green Bay in a...
