Truth is somewhere in between Eagles Monday night win

Is having luck how the Philadelphia Eagles pulled off a win Monday night? I’m sure there are plenty of message boards and bar-goers that think so. And there are even more that think the refs handed them the game. Honestly, the truth is somewhere in between Eagles Monday night win.

Philly played an uneventful, albeit an atrocious, first half. Nick Foles held onto the ball too long (and he had plenty of time to do so) and still missed wide-open receivers.…

Peyton still reigns, but Luck is on his way

Three early first half touchdowns by Peyton Manning to Julius Thomas put the Denver Broncos safely in the lead, but Andrew Luck continues to prove he’s never out of it. Another season, another Andrew Luck comeback. Peyton still reigns, but Luck is on his way to greatness.

Super Bowl XLIX early season prediction

The new NFL season is upon us, and every team has a clean slate. Each team is anxious to start the season in quest of taking home the Lombardi Trophy.

2014 Indianapolis Colts season win total prediction

One of the best NFL bets of the early season the 2014 Indianapolis Colts season win total is only at 9.5. Odds are they will lock up the AFC South early as Andrew Luck gets Reggie Wayne and Dwayne Allen back from injury.

I know that may not seem reassuring but as Colts fans know, last year was an atrocity.…

The next first-time Super Bowl winning QB is?

In the last ten Super Bowls, seven of those winning teams had quarterbacks who were first-time winners, including the last two seasons (Russell Wilson, Joe Flacco). If you look at the eight division winners last year, half of them have a Super Bowl winning quarterback.

There are lots of opportunities for quarterbacks to win their first title in the next couple of seasons, especially if you consider, Peyton Manning is 38, Tom Brady is 37, Drew Brees is 35, and Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning didn’t make the playoffs last season.…
