EndScore Report: How Good Is Eli Manning?

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NFL,

Eli Manning of the New York Giants on the same level as New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady? Umm, no.In this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris debate the worth of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Manning quickly put himself on the level of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. While Manning does own one Super Bowl title, Brady has three and is arguably the best best quarterback of his generation. Manning isn't even in the top five of NFL throwers! So, where does he belong? LISTEN to our thoughts on this!

NFLPA decertifies, NFL owners lock out players

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Editorial, Front Office, News, NFL,

DeMaurice Smith, head of NFLPAThere was only a small bit of hope that came in the form of two deadline extensions to continue to negotiate, but it wasn't enough as the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) led by DeMaurice Smith chose to decertify their union, allowing individual players to join together, not as a union, to sue the NFL owners. In turn, the NFL owners locked out their players from team facilities. No communication is allowed between players and the organization and its employees, such as coaches. Needless to say, the 2011 NFL season is now in jeopardy unless litigation can be settled quickly or somehow the two opposing sides can come to an agreement outside of court.

AP unanimously names Tom Brady NFL Most Valuable Player

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Kudos, News, NFL,

Tom Brady named AP NFL MVPNew England Patriots QB Tom Brady was the first ever unanimous choice for AP NFL MVP. He last won the MVP award in 2007, that time receiving 49 of the 50 votes with one voter voting for Brett Favre. It was a no-brainer that Brady would win the award after putting up 3900 passing yards, throwing 36 touchdowns versus a minisclue four interceptions, and a stellar 111.0 QB Rating. He led the Patriots to a 14-2 record, but were quickly ousted by the New York Jets in the AFC divisional round. While the MVP award is sweet, it's still nothing compared to what Brady and the Patriots work for - a Super Bowl trophy.

Tom Brady named AP Offensive Player of the Year

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Kudos, News, NFL,

Tom Brady named AP Offensive Player of the YearNew England Patriots QB Tom Brady was named AP's Offensive Player of the Year and there isn't much of an argument against it. Brady finished the season with 3,900 passing yards, completing 65.9% of this passes, throwing for 36 touchdowns with only four interceptions, and a 111.0 QB Rating. His touchdown-to-interception ratio of 9.0 is an NFL record. At one point, he threw 355 passes without an INT, which is an amazing feat. Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick finished second in the voting. Brady is the odds-on favorite to be named this past season's NFL MVP.

Tom Brady and New England Patriots agree to Contract Extension

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Front Office, News, NFL,

Tom Brady

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots finally agreed on a four-year extension that will pay Brady $72 million with $48.5 million guaranteed.  Considering all that he’s done for the organization, namely leading the team to three Super Bowls, it was only a matter of time before Brady re-upped with the Pats.  It would have been shocking if Brady didn’t get the opportunity with the team he’s been with his whole career since 2000.  Is Randy Moss, playing in his final year of his contract, up next to sign an extension with the Patriots?  It doesn’t seem likely.

True Predictions: Home Teams Will Rule Wild Card Weekend

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

New England Patriots Predictably, I go 3–2 in the final week of the regular season. The season mark runs to 47-36. Wild Card Weekend provides three repeat match-ups from last weekend, but I only see one coming up with the same result. The home teams will get fat on home-cooking and victories this weekend.

True Predictions: Saints, NFL Western Conferences, and Surprising Broncos

Drew Brees

Just came out of my first losing week; I went 2-3 (12-9 for the season). The Denver Broncos take the New England Patriots in OT. I guess the Broncos are for real. Kyle Orton “out-Brady’d” Tom Brady! The Miami Dolphins re-found the Wildcat and more than met the challenge of the New York Jets’ quick strike style (even with newbie Jet Braylon Edwards making a big contribution). The Baltimore Ravens’ loss to a gutsy Cincinnati Bengals shows how the two teams are going in opposite directions. The Atlanta Falcons got back on track and the Arizona Cardinals survived a late spurt from the Houston Texans.

True Predictions: Vikings, Jets, Ravens, and Sea Monsters

Brett Favre

I went 4-2 this past weekend and 7-4 for the season. The Atlanta Falcons cannot make a statement and lose to the New England Patriots. You tell me if the San Francisco 49ers last second loss to Brett Favre and Minnesota Vikings equals “ugly” as I predicted. I think it counts more as “heart-breaking.” While it was a magical NFL moment to see Favre hoist that ball and to see Greg Lewis snatch it, I am of the mind that Favre will break down at some point during the season. I will either be right on this call or we may be seeing a John-Elway-like end to his career.
