Podcast: Steve Sidwell, Longtime NFL Defensive Coordinator (Part 1) Jan29

Podcast: Steve Sidwell, Longtime NFL Defensive Coo...

Steve Sidwell is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. The long time NFL defensive coordinator talked to us about football and life. It was a great time. Sidwell has coached hall of fame players in New Orleans, New England, Seattle, Houston, Indianapolis and SMU. He was at SMU during the days recently documented in ESPN’s 30 for 30, Pony Excess, and discussed that era and the scandal-ridden Southwest Conference.  We also got into the Ghosts of Ole Miss (another ESPN 30 for 30 documentary) era. Steve delved into a couple TV and movie reviews including Spartacus.  We also discussed life as a coach, getting started in...

Patriots fans allegedly taunted Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith about his deceased brother. This allegation is now being used by many, as is so often the case, to paint the entire Patriots fan base as vile, ruthless creatures who care only about winning and eating newborns. Any Patriots...

Patriots-Jets: Will Pats 4th Quarter Failures Continue? Oct21

Patriots-Jets: Will Pats 4th Quarter Failures Cont...

I wrote the post below this one prior to Sunday’s shit storm in Seattle (Let’s call it the Seahawkalypse). I now think a lot of what I wrote might just be bullshit. The Seahawkalypse made me conscious of something that’s been bugging me for some time.  The Patriots have become a team that just finds ways to lose.  Examples: At Seattle – 10-14-12 – Pats lead 23-10 with 9:21 remaining… If not for Brady’s two red zone misfires earlier in the game this lead is at least 29-10.  The offense goes into the tank for the rest of the game and the defense gives up 2 TDs to lose 24-23. At Denver –...

Automated Insights: Offers CPU-Generated Fantasy F...

Thanks to a new product from Automated Insights, you can now have your fantasy mediocrity dissected by an automated process.   My team, Quick Slunts, was shredded in this Automated Insights recap.  It’s a nice gimmick.  I was amused to see my team’s poor performance analyzed by a computer program. It will be interesting to see if the technology can evolve beyond Mad Libsian statistical reports. One glaring omission from this report, for example, is my ill-fated decision to swap out my defense right before kickoff.  I dropped Seattle and their 17 fantasy points against Dallas for Cincinnati and their limp 4 point...

How do you not come out of the Patriots-Titans game in a near orgasmic state? Stevan Ridley looks like an all-pro featured back — something Tom Brady has had only once in his entire career. (See Corey Dillon 2004) When was the last time you saw the Pats close out a game like that?  In...
