The Gents Guide to Super Bowl 50

It’s that time. The last dance, the final epic battle, the conclusion to a season’s worth of blood, sweat and… you get the idea. Anyway before we settle in for the final game of the season and we all start poring over endless videos of twenty something’s running in a straight line, let’s look at some key points that we believe will affect the Super bowl. Whilst I’ll be writing up the bulk of this piece, I’ll be using details raised by my fellow gents over the past week or so, to give you the opinions of not just me but all of the gents. In this post I’ve tried to make it enjoyable not just for our regular readers, but also for someone who only really watches the Super bowl by giving them some players/areas of the field to keep an eye on, so tell your friends! With that let’s start with the most obvious factor in this matchup.

NFC & AFC Championship Game Preview.

We have 3 meaningful games left. Take that in folks. In a months’ time we’ll be so desperate for the NFL we’ll be judging how quickly someone can run in a straight line.

Life’s been pretty hectic this week, so I’m literally finishing this up an hour before the games start. Much like last week, it’s simply a few interesting points that could be game changers in this week’s epic NFC and AFC title matchups. As always, I’d love to hear your opinion, so hit us up on twitter.

Saturday’s Divisional Match-up Preview

It’s been a while, but now that life has slowed down somewhat I thought I’d share a few thoughts on this weekend’s Divisional action, a weekend that ordinarily deals out some of the more tense match-ups and the last time we’ll have more than 2 match-ups in a weekend, so let’s savour this.

I want to make a few points on every game, some of which would be obvious, some hopefully less obvious. Let’s start with a game that might see the Pats as the underdogs… maybe.

The Final Fantasy: Week 16

Fantasy NFL

This is it the final week of Fantasy. We’re into the final championship games. We have had two matchups already, with Jordan Reed being the player to have started. This week won’t be too indepth, I think there have been too many injuries to make looking at consistency a difficult prediction tool. Generally it has been hard to predict which players are likely to do well, I have been wrong on many weeks, hence why the Gents teams generally have done poorly. Apart from in the Quidditch league in which we won the regular season and now in the Championship decider. Honest it was not a fix. I’ll announce the other winners in another post and on the podcast. The winners this week from League A and B get ready to put to pick your ultimate fantasy line up to be crowned the Gridiron Gent Superbowl Fantasy Champion.
