Dan gets something off his chest…

New feature this week it would seem. The Sleepy Time Review would now appear to be the Sleepy Time Rant as Dan gets far too worked up about the Packers’ deficiencies, especially at that time of the morning. We’ve still got all of the weekend action broken down for you...

Predictions – Week 11

Well, this is just getting silly now, isn’t it? We looked at Week 10 and there were a lot  (a LOT) of games that we were all fairly unanimous in opinion on as to who would emerge victorious. As a result, we all nailed a big week in terms of...

Four become two…

It’s a trimmed down lineup this week as Dan and Simon hold the fort to look through the week’s news (lets be honest, it’s Le’Veon Bell) and look at the Thursday Night match up between the Packers and the Seahawks. We also revisit our Top 10 lists from pre-season and...

The Staley Swindle

The Staley Swindle In 1921, the NFL’s second season ever season saw its first ever major controversy. There were several major flaws in the early NFL, so early in fact the the NFL was still the APFA, chief among which was there was no central schedule. Teams were largely responsible...

Week 10 wonders

What a weekend that was in the NFL. Here’s my rundown on some games that caught my eye. Panthers vs Steelers: Big performance from the Steelers. This game should have been competitive but it really, really wasn’t. I fancied the Panthers in this one but after what was an impressive...

I agree. Me too! And me!!

We’re headlong in to the weekend’s action of Week 10, and there is a lot of agreement at Gents HQ this week! We have the sleepy time review of a somewhat one sided affair from Thursday, which of course we all saw coming. Honest. So who else gets the “Unanimous...

The “Lets make it up as we go along” Award goes to…

We’re back as we cross the halfway mark for the season already, and that means it’s time for some note quite so, but still too, early awards! Yes, we dish out the awards as we think they would stand as of right now as well as shoehorning in one or...

Why we should all be watching Carolina

There is a team whose offense is completely flying under the radar at the moment and it’s a great tragedy that they are. Patrick Mahomes delights us weekly with gaudy passing numbers, skilful throws and getting the best out of an outstanding cast of pass catchers. Sean McVay delights us...

Predictions – Week 10

Well, we’re heading toward the business end of the season at an alarming rate and it’s good to know we’re still capable of pulling a mediocre week out of the bank when it comes to predictions! After a sterling Week 8 from everyone, we’re back to overing around the .500...

Fritz Pollard: A True NFL Trailblazer

The NFL has a chequered history with race and in particular black players. While it didn’t go as far as other sports in America by excluding black players from playing the NFL is not without its share of shame. There were no black players in the NFL between 1933 and...
