I remember a time not very long ago when this game had a lot more Fantasy star power.

One of the more underrated rivalries now, not long ago before the San Francisco player exodus, NFC Championship conversation began and ended in the Pacific Northwest with these two teams. (more…)

2015 NFL Preview: NFC Division Predictions

Division and playoff predictions are tricky in the NFL.

Every week a team can look like a “team to beat” or the worst team you’ve ever seen. With the NFL only playing 16 games, one could put themselves in a situation to be roundly criticized for picking the wrong team without the benefit of hindsight.  (more…)
