Fantasy Update

It happens. I’m still in the dark about how the host on the NFL’s RedZone channel goes to the bathroom during eight hours of commercial free football on Sundays. One option is maybe to do what Fox announcer Joe Buck did once in 1994, pee in a trash can ... while calling the game. He recounted the story on the NFL Network’s Dave Dameshek Football Program. That was Buck’s first year in the booth for Fox. They were in Milwaukee for a Packers game there during the regular season and, as Buck described it, the first half just would not end. And his bladder wasn’t giving him any breaks....

Red Zone Play: Crisis of Identity

Red Zone Play: Crisis of Identity

Mike Bullock examines why we still don’t know what the Houston Texans are. A long time ago, I heard Brett Favre talk about winning football games. He was on the subject of how to beat an opponent and how to make adjustments to take on opposing defenses. Brett’s take on it was something I’ll paraphrase here for you: “Why would we adjust what we do based on the other team? That doesn’t make any sense. We’re going to do what we do best and dare them to stop us. We’re gonna jam it down their throats and we’re gonna win.” Now, I get that Bill Belichick’s team is the...

Brett Favre offers congratulations to Tom Brady after record-breaking win: ‘You’re the best, man’

After Sunday’s win put Tom Brady first on the list for all-time quarterback victories, Brett Favre offered a congratulatory message for the New England signal-caller.

Patriots QB Tom Brady has thrown touchdowns to a ridiculous 63 different receivers

Brady is closing in on the regular season record. When New England Patriots QB Tom Brady hit rookie WR Malcolm Mitchell for a 56-yard touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers it marked the 63rd different player to catch a touchdown from Brady in the regular season. Only journeyman QB Vinny Testaverde has thrown touchdowns to more unique receivers over the course of his career (70!). Brady ranked ahead of QB Brett Favre (61) prior to the game and broke his tie with QB Steve DeBerg (62). What makes Brady so special is the fact that he’s accomplished this feat with the same franchise,...

Brady next in 49ers’ November parade of carvers

Christian Ponder is the 49ers’ third-string quarterback, which means he runs the scout-team offense during the week and mimics the next quarterback on the schedule. Safety Antoine Bethea, 32, whose first career interception came against Brady in 2005, expects more of the same in his ninth game against the four-time Super Bowl winner. The 49ers (1-8), on pace to allow the second-most yards in NFL history, against a legend who can tie Brett Favre for the second-most total wins (199) by a quarterback with a victory Sunday. The league’s worst run defense snapped its NFL-record...

Jameis Winston: How the Bucs quarterback is imitating Brett Favre

TAMPA — Twenty-five games into his NFL career, Jameis Winston's signature play has no name. If you drew it up, merely traced the steps from snap to his 22-yard retreat into his own end zone, seeping like water through defenders, before launching a 39-yard strike to Mike Evans, it would resemble nothing in a playbook.

Mike Florio wonders if Chiefs would be interested in Tony Romo

Some interesting audio that Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison passed along on 610 Sports this week. Danny played a segment from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk who made an appearance on a Chicago radio station talking about Tony Romo’s future and where he will play next season. I hadn’t really considered the Chiefs for this and I still don’t but here’s what Florio said: “I think they try to trade him to a team, preferably in the AFC, like the Packers did with Brett Favre in 2008,” Florio said on 670 The Score. “The Jets are a candidate again, I believe. The Broncos are a...

Brett Favre on Eli Manning: “I’d take him any day of the week”

Hall of Famer lauds Giants’ QB Try to find a quarterback to compare to Eli Manning and, at least for me, the one name that always comes to mind is Hall of Famer Brett Favre. No fear. Gunslinger mentality. Lots of success. Durability. On the flip side, plenty of questionable throws, a so-so passer rating, boatloads of interceptions, heaps of criticism. So, Favre’s thoughts on Manning, expressed on his Sirius XM NFL Radio show this week, are noteworthy. “All the other records [I set], good or bad, the ones that have fallen and the ones that still stand, would not be possible if not for...

Chargers QB Philip Rivers Cost the Chargers a Shot at the Playoffs

The San Diego Chargers live and die by the arm of Philip Rivers. Today, their All Pro quarterback killed them. I want to first say that I am perhaps, one of the biggest fans of Philip Rivers. I have argued in the past that Rivers is a better quarterback than Eli Manning. But today Philip Rivers went all Brett Favre in today’s game against the Miami Dolphins. I am not talking about the good Brett Favre either. I am talking about the gunslinger that used to throw into triple coverage, or tried to force the ball into too tight of a window, or threw a pass where there were no receivers in the...
