TPF’s NFL Week 2 Rundown

In what many could consider a walk through bizarro world (any Sealab fans?), Week 2 of the NFL season was more than interesting. A slew of injuries, suspensions, and upsets made Week 2 the most intense one that I can remember since the 2006-2008 seasons. That was a time when the league felt very balanced, and the playoffs were fun. And that’s exactly what this week felt like; fun. The San Diego Chargers carved up Seattle; the Buffalo Bills started 2-0 and plenty more in this week’s rundown.…

3 must watch NFL games for Week 1

Excitement is growing for a new NFL season, and there are three games on the schedule that could be considered must watch.

Not many are looking forward to the Miami Dolphins against the New England Patriots, unless of course you’re a fan of either team, but the matchup between these two is perfect for Week 1.

What we’ve learned from NFL Preseason Week 2

Another week of football. Another week of wild speculations and crazy analysis. A few interesting matchups took place: the Tennessee Titans went toe-to-toe with the New Orleans Saints, the Detroit Lions showed they still know how to let opponents hang around, and the world finally got to sink their teeth into Manziel vs. RG3. Geez, you would have thought it was a college bowl game (that mattered) the way it was being promoted. Fret not, there is more semi-inconsequential football talk below.…

Chris Crocker and the domino effect

It was only a matter of time before an ex-member of the Bengals jumped ship to the Minnesota Vikings.  I just thought it might have been earlier in the off-season.

The signing of longtime Zimmer favorite, Chris Crocker, is a move that’s going to make waves in an already vicious training camp battle.  People that might have been considered safe just a week ago might be on the verge of packing their bags and dipping their toes in the free agent market.…
