Useless Super Bowl Trivia

By Blaidd Drwg

Interesting but useless: The top 3 passing games by yardage in Super Bowl history all belong to Kurt Warner, with games of 414 yds (SB 34), 377 yds (SB 43) and 365 yds (SB 36). No one else has topped 360 yards in the history of the game.

Even more interesting is […]

Will … What?

by A.J. Coltrane

As I was driving home from work tonight I saw a couple in their 20’s holding up a sign. The font was very loopy and hard to read. It said:

“WILL SCREAM FOR TICKETS!!”

Like I said, it was hard to read. My first thought was that it said something else.

I […]

The Stupidity of the Pro Bowl

By Blaidd Drwg

The Pro Bowl is an idiotic game that vaguely resembles football that no one actually cares about – the players, the coaches, the fans, no one. So many players back out of the game that it is usually a bunch of marginally good players playing what amounts to pick up football.

For […]

The Road to the Super Bowl Runs Through…

By Blaidd Drwg

You hear all about home field advantage in the NFL, and there is definitely an advantage to playing at home, in the regular season. Come playoff time, momentum seems to be more important than playing in your front. I think it becomes exaggerated because the #1 and #2 seeds end up sitting […]

The NFL. What A Crapshoot.

by A.J. Coltrane

Over time I’ve decided that NFL outcomes are more random than I prefer to be involved with (read: gamble on). There are too few possessions per team, and too few scores — if the NFL awarded one point for a touchdown instead of seven a “normal” result would be something like 4 […]

Predicting the 2013 NFL Season

By Blaidd Drwg

The great thing about baseball is that you can generally use advanced metrics to make a prediction about the performance of a team in an upcoming season with reasonable accuracy. There are certainly things you can’t predict (injuries, guys significantly over/under performing, luck, etc.) but those metrics have been tested and tweaked […]

The NFL Fan Base

By Blaidd Drwg

A few weeks ago, Annie S. nephew tried to convince me that Seahawks fans are as loyal and supportive of their team as anyone else. He is young (under 25), so his memory doesn’t go too far back into history. I didn’t buy his argument.

I moved to Seattle in 2003 and […]

Happiness Is A Healthy Quarterback

by A.J. Coltrane

I’m currently in an office pool where a buddy and I each picked four NFL teams to start the year. Success is (basically) based upon total team wins. I wound up with the Buccaneers and Titans (and the Ravens and the 49ers). The Bucs are now 1-8. The Titans are 4-5. I’m […]

The Book On The Seahawks

by A.J. Coltrane

Until the Seahawks prove otherwise they’re going to get a steady diet of what they got last night. The Rams defense packed eight players “into the box”, rushed the lanes on either side of the Center, and dared the Seahawks to throw. Teams have been doing that off and on the this year and last […]

Pushing a Player into the Line

By Blaidd Drwg

If you have been hiding under a rock, the Patriots got flagged for a penalty on a FG in overtime, which ultimately lead to the Jets kicking the winning FG. The Jets tipped the refs off that the Pats were using a play which one player pushed another into the line, which […]
