Head of the Class

This is the official, high-profile "I taught Joe Flacco" story, with video of me accosting him on Media Day. I want to thank Colin Kaepernick's math teacher for helping out.

Mandatory Monday: Release the Hounds

This is one of those roundups of the craziness of Super Bowl week. Correction: it is MY roundup of the craziness of Super Bowl week, so it is rounder and upper than the others. Will drop an XP or two from New Orleans here this week.

Mandatory Monday: Hometown Hero

Despite the title, this is not a long "I knew Flacco when he was 15" piece; I just start with a bit about the excitement here in my corner of Camden County. Then, it is off to a frame-by-frame rundown of the Patriots during their line-up drill before halftime, and making fun of the Falcons. Enjoy!

NFL Lowdown: Divisional Playoffs

These ran long, but there are some Texans diagrams, a long look at the Seahawks' offseason in comparison to what the Falcons did in 2008, and a weird bit about the 1970s Rams, so you should like it. I am doing a Cover It Live chat over there at Sports on Earth at 2 PM Eastern on Friday and would love to see some of the old faces, so stop by!

Mandatory Monday: One More Time

Notes from my trip to Balmer to see Ray Lewis' final home game. A reminder of why option plays have limited NFL usefulness, as if we needed a reminder after watching RG3 double over. There is also a Saturday article over at Sports on Earth with a goofy Dragnet parody.

NFL Lowdown: Wild Card Weekend

Some read-option talk, a look at the weak link in the Packers offensive line, and a note about how bad Texans games look a lot like good Texans games.
