They had it.

I keep repeating that phrase over and over again as I go over the many ways the Atlanta Falcons cost themselves their first Super Bowl Championship in franchise history. (more…)

Aaron Rodgers

There have been a lot of names thrown out regarding this seasons NFL MVP award. Ezekiel “Zeke” Elliott. David Johnson. Tom Brady. All of them have been discussed and all of that discussion had merit.

Emphasis on ‘had’.  (more…)

Ep. 13: Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings Kicker

BoS-Logo-iTunes

When talking to Minnesota Vikings Kicker Blair Walsh you get the sense of a man that is focused on what’s ahead. He’s moved past last season, and is primed for a big season for a Vikings team with high expectations. In other words, he’s got the right mindset to play what can sometimes be a very unforgiving position. Most of that is because he knows what’s important, which is a testament to his strong family and support system. Blair, statistically, is a top-5 Kicker in the National Football League since he debuted in 2012. At age 22, he was named 1st Team All-Pro in the NFL (the only rookie on the team that year) and set numerous Viking and NFL records along the way. In 2015, he made almost 97% of the Extra Points he attempted and almost 86% of the Field Goals he attempted. (more…)

Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback Carson Palmer (4,671 yards, 35 TD’s, 104.6% Rating) left a lot to be desired in getting his first career playoff victory last week against the Green Bay Packers. Things don’t get easier against the Carolina Panthers this weekend, either. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri)

NFL Playoffs 2015: NFC Divisional Round A Proving Ground For Packers, Seahawks

 

NFC Championship - San Francisco 49ers v Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson (4,024 yards, 34 TD’s, 110.1 Rating) has been nothing short of sensational in 2015; and in his last four meetings against the Panthers (including postseason) he’s posted totals of 1,028 yards, 6 TD’s, 1 INT, and a 109.8 Rating. More importantly? The Seahawks are 3-1 in those games. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)

One of the best parts about sports, for me, is the competition when something is on the line. It’s that competition when you’re so close to achieving the ultimate goal that makes everything about practicing and playing worth it. Which is why this week’s NFC Divisional match ups has me so excited for football this weekend.
