Super Bowl Quarterbacks

Yeah, yeah. I figured I, just like everybody else, would play this, “I can’t believe Arizona is in Super Bowl card,” but that’s too obvious. Furthermore, if the Cardinals offense keeps scoring like they have and they continue to get decent support from their defensive unit, Arizona is not going to be an easy win for any team they play in two weeks. It’s really pretty simple: Kurt Warner has all the experience you can ask for and his receiving corps is clearly the best in the league. These two components alone make them a legitimate threat to win the Super Bowl.

Chris Clemons Destroys Tarvais Jackson

So which is the better exclamation point? The Chris Clemons stiff-arm or the absolute burial of Tarvaris Jackson? Both helped the Philadelphia defense score a touchdown, although, the points were much more of a necessity against Minnesota than they were against Dallas. It’s hard to pick a winner because both plays are indeed memorable, but since a playoff win is more valuable than a regular season win — even if said regular season win catapulted your team to the playoffs — I think I’m picking the Jackson burial as being the most important out of the two.

Worst Team In The NFL – Week 4

Sheldon Brown

By now, it’s pretty obvious who currently has the worst team in the NFL even though there are four teams who haven’t won a game yet. While Cincinnati, Detroit and Houston aren’t very good — Houston is easily the best out of this bunch — they aren’t as bad as the St Louis Rams.

Detroit and Houston have serviceable offenses, much like the Bengals used to have. Now the Bengals are relying on an almost-respectable defense to keep their games close. The Rams have neither. They are the absolute worst in the NFL in both offense and defense, and in most cases, it’s by a wide margin.

Oh Yeah, The Pro Bowl Was Last Night

The NFL held their All-Star festivities in Honolulu yesterday and for some reason, I’m reminded of the “tree falling in the forest” metaphor. Is it still considered an NFL game if no one watches?

Viewers or no didn’t stop no-longer-a-rookie Adrian Peterson from winning MVP honors as he led the NFC to victory over the AFC by the score of 42-30. Over at Deadspin, they have a great write-up about the NFL’s answer to the NBA’s All-Star weekend, however, I don’t think the NFL manages to pull it off with the same fanfare… maybe they could have a dunk contest using the field goal uprights.
