The season is all over (boo-hoo!) so we take a look back at one of the great Super Bowls and then open the coffee stained envelopes to hand out the annual Gridiron Gentlemen paper plate awards.
So this is it. Week 17 already (sob) and the season is almost done. Well, aside from the best part of the season of course which is the Play Offs!
James regained his lead last week, but only just. With several picks going in different directions, it really does all come down to this.
It’s the penultimate week of the regular season so, in true Christmas Panto season style – boooooo!
Also in try Christmas Panto style – James, he’s behind you!
With their dominant defensive performance in Super Bowl 50, the Denver Broncos laid down a reliable template for success in the modern NFL.
Future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning had arguably the worst season ever for a Super Bowl winning quarterback in 2015, throwing 17 interceptions and only nine touchdowns. In fact, his play was so poor that it somehow convinced the Houston Texans that Brock Osweiler was worth big bucks in comparison.
The Broncos succeeded thanks to a defense full of superstars such as Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware, and their offense did them very few favours, relying on the odd moment of brilliance from Emmanuel Sanders or Demaryius Thomas to win games. Ring any bells?
Week 15 is upon us and we now know who will be landing on our shores for the FOUR games we have next year. Check out this week’s podcast for more news and views on that. As for the prediction league, well the net is closing in on James.
