The NFL – “Are You Not Entertained?”

What a horrible few weeks the NFL has had. I can’t remember a time when the league has been through such a public relations nightmare and it doesn’t seem ready to end any time soon. It began, almost quietly enough, with Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy. In July, Hardy was convicted of two domestic […]

Seattle Seahawks Will Be Just Fine As They Gear Up For Super Bowl Rematch

Anyone who has followed a team over the course of an entire season knows how quickly narratives surrounding teams can fluctuate. Winning will predictably generate endless praise and adoration like it did after the Seattle Seahawks’ week one blowout of the Green Bay Packers. Losing, on the other hand, will generate all sorts of reactionary […]

Brian Hight’s Week Three NFL Picks

After an abysmal 5-11 start in week one, I bounced back slightly in week two for an 8-8 record, making my overall record for the season 13-19. My goal at this point is to get back to .500 by week four and start racking up after that. You’ll note that due to a snafu on […]

Sunday Fantasy Football Start And Sit – Week Three

RECORD LAST WEEK: 16-11-1 (Let’s face it, no one saw Adrian Peterson being arrested) OVERALL: 19-16-1 Tampa Bay at Atlanta Start: Bobby Rainey, RB, TB Doug Martin looks to be out again with a knee injury, and Rainey had a big night last week. Someone on the Tampa offense has to do something, and Rainey […]


Road Worriers – The Seattle Seahawks Have Yet To Master Away Games

Well that was a bit of a head scratcher. The defending world champion Seattle Seahawks sourly dropped a lop-sided road game in San Diego on Sunday to the tune of 30 – 21. Coming off of their season-opening thrashing of the Green Bay Packers, Seattle took their talents on the road to southern California and […]

The NFL Is In Crisis – But That’s Not What Matters

In the wake of things going from very bad to nuclear for the National Football League in the last 24 to 48 hours, with the TMZ release of the videotape of Ray Rice knocking out his wife in a casino elevator throwing the NFL’s incredible mishandling of the situation back into the national limelight, there […]

Brian Hight’s Week Two NFL Picks

Wow! Week one was brutal. My record against the spread last week was an abysmal 5-11. Of the early games on Sunday, four flipped on me in the last minutes, none more crushing than the 17 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown that put Philadelphia 17 ahead of Jacksonville with 1:23 to go in the […]

Richard Sherman

Silence Is Golden For Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman

One of the most interesting storylines from the Seattle Seahawks 36-16 Week 1 romp over the Green Bay Packers was the total lack of action for All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman. Aaron Rodgers, a perennial MVP candidate and one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, didn’t target Sherman once throughout the entire game, with Green […]

Sunday Fantasy Football Start And Sit – Week Two

RECORD LAST WEEK: 3-5 The record works like this: If a player I recommend to start scores in the Top 10 for his position for the week, I get a win. If a player I recommend sits is outside the Top 10, I get a win. I get a loss if the reverse on either […]

The game is hyped as a playoff preview, among other things. These two […]
