Adrian Peterson may have a point…



Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson endorsed backup quarterback Matt Cassel as the permanent starter after Cassel led the team to a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

This endorsement came in an after-game interview, officially stirring a quarterback controversy in Minnesota.

Colin Kaepernick’s new nickname: “They Hate Me”



I know it’s a dated reference but I remember when former Carolina Panthers running back Rod Smart used to go by the moniker “He Hate Me.” It was a phrase he picked up from one of his teammates that basically stated that every one of his opponents hated him.

Smart really made a statement when he used this phrase on the back of his jersey during his playing time in the failed XFL football league. Others players in that league used variations of his phrase on the backs of their jerseys and one of his former teammates even named a horse they owned “She Hate Me” in reference to Smart.

Falcons Will Return to Playoffs, but That’s About It…



Sorry Atlanta Falcons fans but if you’re looking for your team to make the Super Bowl this year then I can save you 20 weeks’ worth of time right now. It won’t happen this year.

There don’t you feel better? Now you can just sit back, relax and feel all of the stress and tension ease away from your body as you come to the realization that what I’m telling you is correct.

Somewhere Wes Welker is Smiling...



Karma is a b****, and the New England Patriots might be feeling her wrath after their mistreatment of former wide receiver Wes Welker.

Welker who has been the Patriots most productive receiver over the last six seasons, was unceremoniously allowed to walk in free agency as the Patriots opted for a youth movement in their receiving corps.

Seahawks prove why competition is good



What was the biggest difference between the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Jets last year? Well the easy response is that the Seahawks made the playoffs last season and the Jets didn't.

While this is true, there was one reason above all that had the biggest affect on these teams' seasons: their offseason QB competitions.

Tebow draws little interest despite read-option trend



Maybe I'm missing something here but I don't understand why New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has drawn so little interest from teams this offseason.

Even his hometown team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, is reportedly not seeking to add him to their roster. This despite the fact that he could probably be acquired fairly cheap at this point and they don’t seem to be going very far with the quarterback they have on hand.

Will Tim Tebow reach the promised land?



It may seem a little disingenuous using a biblical reference to describe the latest situation surrounding New York Jets’ backup quarterback Tim Tebow but what would be the point in writing these things if you couldn’t have a little fun with it?

Besides, it kind of fits in a way. Especially when you consider how Tebow’s football odyssey has gone so far.

Falcons’ defense has evolved this season



While calling it “championship-caliber” may still be somewhat of a stretch, the Atlanta Falcons’ defensive unit is playing much better this year than it had the first four years of Mike Smith’s coaching tenure.

You probably couldn’t tell by looking at the statistics though. The Falcons rank 23rd defensively and have given up a lot of yards this season.

Any options left for Michael Vick?



The Philadelphia Eagles have turned the quarterback position over to rookie Nick Foles for the rest of the season which leads everyone to believe one thing: Michael Vick’s days are numbered in Philly. If that is true then we will find out soon if Vick still has a future as a starting quarterback in the NFL.

More than likely Vick will be playing for a new team by the start of next season. He has too much talent for some teams to pass up.

NFL Comeback Player of the Year race: Peyton Manning versus Adrian Peterson




When is the last time people were this divided over a Comeback Player of the Year race? Usually this is a pretty cut and simple decision but Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning and Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson have made this year’s Comeback Player of the Year award an actual race.

It’s hard to remember when two names as big as Manning and Peterson were both in the running for the award. While Manning has been having a monster year after missing all of the 2011 season, Peterson is having his best ever season statistically during a time when he should be still recovering.
