NFL Pro Bowl: NFC -1 point favorites from online sportsbooks

The NFL Pro Bowl is now officially the last football game before Super Bowl Sunday after the NFL decided to fill the void left one week before the big game. This format may not last for long as a lot of the players elected to the Pro Bowl can make the game either due to injuries or the fact that they are on one of the two teams headed to the Super Bowl. For the time being, the Pro Bowl will be played at the end of the January, but I don’t it expect it to last much longer as it just isn’t working. Continue Reading…

The 2011 NBA All-Star game is about three weeks away and will most likely be another epic event as it will be played in Los Angeles, California on the two-time defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers home floor of the Staples Center.

Along with Kobe leading the way for the Western Conference All-Stars, here is the rest of the West roster followed by the Eastern Conference All-Star starters: Continue Reading…

Jeff Fisher out as head coach of the Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans have been one of the better teams in the AFC conference for quite some time now as they always seem to have an edge on the sidelines with arguably one of the best head coaches in the game in Jeff Fisher.

Not only has Jeff Fisher been around seemingly forever in Tennessee, but he has one Super Bowl appearance, countless playoff games under his belt and is the longest tenured head coach in the NFL today. Continue Reading…

This weekend some of the best of the best in the NFL will head to Honolulu, Hawaii to take part in a head-to-head showdown between the AFC and NFC. Even though being a Pro Bowler is thought to be something the many players in the NFL are proud of to put on their resume, not many of these big name players actually make it as they are either recovering from injury or playing in the Super Bowl.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has sprained MCL

Last season the Chicago Bears were team on the verge of finally being able to turn it around as they were able to bring in a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback to run the offense after making a trade with the Denver Broncos to acquire Jay Cutler.

At first glance, this deal was immediately going to make the Chicago Bears a better football team as they hadn’t had a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback under center since the days of Mike Ditka. Even though Cutler had the potential to be one of the best QBs in this league with a cannon for a throwing arm and the ability to scramble with the best of them, the young quarterback really struggled in his first year under center in the Windy City.

Lakers dominate Jazz to quiet critics

Coming into last night’s game at Staples Center in Los Angeles, the two-time defending NBA champion Lakers were receiving a lot of critics around the league for not being the championship caliber team they used to be on the defensive end of the floor.

Lakers legend Jerry West turned out to be the most critical of his former team as he said the defending champs’ age was starting to catch up with them. With an average age of 30 and 10 players over at or over that age, the Lakers aren’t getting any younger, but if there is something that this time thrives on it is criticism like this and people doubting their ability.

Carson Palmer wants to be traded by the Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals came into this NFL regular season with high hopes of being amongst the best teams in the league once again as they had the same AFC North champion team relatively intact with a key addition in perennial Pro Bowl wide receiver Terrell Owens. Even though the Bengals were poised to make a run at the AFC North division title for a second straight year and possibly become a Super Bowl title contender in the AFC, Cincinnati just couldn’t play consistently well this season and finished the year with just four wins.

Steelers win the AFC crown again with win over the New York Jets

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been one of the most successful teams in the NFL for quite some time now, but they ever since they drafted versatile quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, this team has always had a shot at making it all the way to the Super Bowl every single season.

Coming into these NFL playoffs, the Pittsburgh Steelers had won the AFC North division title and clinched a first-round bye, but they had to face the division rival Baltimore Ravens in their first playoff game. Even though the Steelers were considered to be amongst the best teams in the league, they had their hands full against the Ravens. Continue Reading…

Green Bay Packers edge the Chicago Bears to win the NFC Championship

The Green Bay Packers came into their NFC Championship showdown with the arch rival Chicago Bears optimistic that they could beat their division rivals and finally get back to the Super Bowl. Even though the Packers had been playing like arguably the best offense in the entire playoffs and getting some good production out of their defense, the consensus was that this game would be close and most likely would come down to a game-winning field goal with time expiring.
