Cleveland Browns 2012 Fantasy Football Preview

Ranking 30th in the NFL at 13.6 points per game is hard to swallow, but it really shouldn’t come as much a surprise to anyone because the Cleveland Browns had the 28th youngest offense in the league. With high draft picks Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden, the Browns aren’t getting any older at key positions and that is why it could be another year to take extreme caution with Cleveland in regards to fantasy.

Here are the guys in Cleveland that you should have on your list come time to do the fantasy draft. [Read more…]

Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden could be the 4th QB off the board Thursday night. He could be the 8th signal caller off the board Friday or Saturday, or anywhere in between. He’s 29 years old which is an ancient redwood as far as NFL Draft prospects go. He’s also married to a decent looking woman.

Here are some pics of his wife Melanie Weeden.

New Year’s Resolutions for the Minnesota Vikings

A season that didn’t seem to be able to get any worse just did during the Christmas Eve game against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. Not only did the Vikings come out of the contest victorious, but franchise running back Adrian Peterson tore his ACL and MCL. Happy holidays to the purple people eaters. For those of you who are thinking that the injury isn’t a big deal because of the timing, consider the recovery. These are two severe injuries that require extensive rehabilitation. The treatment will be both physical and psychological for AP. It is not even certain if the recovery will be fully to his previous condition.

What we do know is that he is expected to make a full recovery in time for opening day 2012. He should be 100% by sometime in the early-mid preseason.

It’s that time of year where all of us vow to cut out those midnight snacks and work out more.

If I spent half as much time exercising as watching other people play sports, I’d be on a commercial for GNC. The Minnesota Vikings certainly have some resolutions that need to be adhered to in order to avoid the sub-par play fans have witnessed throughout the last two seasons.

West Coast Bias: Five Lessons From Oregon-Stanford

The Pac-12 balance of power was up for grabs on Saturday night as the Oregon Ducks and Stanford Cardinal battled in Northern California. These two top-ten teams both had aspirations to finish atop the conference, and to host the first Pac-12 Championship game in December, but it was Oregon that ended up getting the job done as they throttled Andrew Luck and Stanford 53-30. LeMichael James had a monster game for the Ducks, and Luck ended up throwing two interceptions in the defeat.

Cowboys Use Huge Second Half From Weeden to Beat Aggies

The term “tale of two halves” gets bandied about a lot in the college football world. Ranked teams don’t give enough credit to an upstart bunch from a tiny school, and then all of a sudden they find themselves down at the half and are shocked back into playing like they’re capable of.

Obviously the “upstart” tag could hardly be applied to the number 8 team in the country, but the Texas A&M Aggies came out Saturday afternoon and punched the Oklahoma State Cowboys right in the mouth. On only the fourth play from scrimmage of the game, Aggie QB Ryan Tannehill took advantage of overzealous Cowboy defensive lineman and busted a 65 yard touchdown run up the middle to give his team the early 7-0 advantage. The Aggies rode that momentum all the way through the first half, scoring another touchdown thanks to a great catch by Jeff Fuller, and at the end of 30 minutes A&M had a 20-3 lead, and “The 12th man” at Kyle Field was up for grabs. Things were looking bleak for the Cowboys, but things turned around quickly.

#12 Oklahoma State Cowboys: College Football 77 in 77

oklahoma-state-mike-gundy

One of two things usually come to mind first when you talk about Oklahoma State Cowboys football. 1.) the infamous Mike Gundy “THAT’S GARBAGE! and “I’M A MAN, I’M 40!” rant from 2007 (we know you’ve seen the parodies, but just in case you haven’t go here and here)

2.) the richest most powerful and all-seeing, all-doing alumni booster in college football in T. Boone Pickens. The stadium is not the only building on the OSU campus with his name on it.

But after the first 11 win season in school history, featuring the most explosive offense ever at Oklahoma State, the Cowboys will soon become more nationally known for their winning ways and exciting white-collar football.
