Confessions of a Football Junkie: Weis-guy

The theme of the weekend was questionable officiating -- the end of the USC game, the end of the Saints game, playoff baseball had it in spades. Russell looks at the way coaches deal with it. He can't help but give proper respect to Charlie Weis for the work he's doing in South Bend. Get in line, Russ, Weis is the king of Irish town.

Confessions of a Football Junkie: Jets Juice

The football viewing was a little different for Russell this weekend, as he took the opportunity to see his favorite NFL team, the Buccaneers, play in person. Along the way, he spent some quality pregame time with the Wayne Chrebet fan club, learned of the recuperative properties of Jets Juice, and ate from Big Sal's grill at a rolling Jets tailgate party. Take a trip to Gang Green country along with Confessions of a Football Junkie.

Confessions of a Football Junkie: How Much Is Too Much?

If you watched as much football as Russell Levine, you'd get annoyed at instant replay too. In this edition of Confessions, he takes the college game to task for their games which take too long, and he gives everybody the business for a weekend of replay challenges with a lower success rate than DeShaun Foster's. (Ok, that was a cheap shot -- but at whom?) Plus the usual Russell features, like the Mike Martz award and his latest BlogPoll.

Plus, the latest BlogPoll ballot.

Confessions of a Football Junkie: Road Trip Report

Russell checks in with a road-trip wrapup from his Michigan trip for the Notre Dame game. In what is surely a sign of aging, he's not all that upset. Really. Maybe the Buccaneers' Sunday effort has something to do with that.

Confessions of a Football Junkie: The Art of Being Better

Rodney Harrison, for whom Russell also has the utmost respect, is probably fuming on Monday because the pundits are spending more time talking about what the Eagles did to lose the Super Bowl than what New England did to win it. But how many times do the Patriots have to win close games before people figure out the reason: they're just better.
