Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston's season-ending knee injury during his sack dance reminds me of how a lot of football players are just big kids. Big dumb kids.
Heck, Bears coach Marc Trestman is giving his students -- a.k.a. the players -- written...

Was that actually Week 8 of the NFL or were we all watching a Madden video game simulation? NFL teams scored a total of 740 points in Week 8, based on pro-football-reference.com data, the second-highest total this season after Week 3 (744).

As an NFL fan, I don't particularly trust Bill "Spygate" Belichick. As a fantasy football owner, I really don't trust Belichick.
The only statistic the New England Patriots coach cares about is the number of W's he has, and that's what he's paid for,...

I knew this was coming. I left Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson off my list of top waiver wire finds for Week 8, and I figured someone would question my sanity. Even my editor brought him up.

Seems like a fair question when you look at the body of evidence. Some examples:
•A man in a Santa suit was booed at an Eagles game in 1968, which started...

Others fawn over Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. They're all-time greats, but give me Drew Brees.
For as long as a can I remember Brees wearing black and gold, I have drafted, tried to draft, bribed or threatened bodily harm to get the Saints quarterback...

You read that headline correctly, the Seattle Seahawks traded wide receiver and kick return specialist Percy Harvin traded to the New York Jets on Friday, a stunning move that has NFL and fantasy implications.
Fantasy outlook: The Seahawks appear to...

Unlike Week 6, free-agent running backs may be hard to come by this week, depending on your fantasy football league. Most of your value will be found in wide receivers. And that's OK. That position can be just as scarce in leagues that start three...

Before our interview can begin, “Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead” costars Jocelyn DeBoer and Ingrid Haas press their heads together and grin. It’s the sort of bond that can be forged only while fighting Nazi zombies in Iceland.
