Let me start by saying I’m not a Patriots fan. I’m an Eagles fan. I’m merely an angry, bitter, disgusted Eagles fan who has tasted playoff failure for my entire life. I’ve witnessed the Eagles lose in four NFC championship games, and one Super Bowl. I was in attendance in Jacksonville during that Super Bowl XXXIX loss to the Patriots. I haven’t tasted a Super Bowl victory, and neither have any Eagles fans. Instead, I’ve had to suffer through watching the Giants win two Super Bowls in the last four years. I didn’t sign up for this.
I’ve taken a couple of days to reflect on what took place in Indianapolis on Sunday night. The more I think about it, the more I cannot believe the Patriots lost.
The more I realize how lucky the Giants got.
The more I realize how Tom Brady blew it. The Golden Boy. Continue reading

Coughlin vs. Belichick. Manning (Eli) vs. Brady. New York vs. Boston. It does not get any better than the scenario that has been set up for Super Bowl XLVI. There are millions of storylines floating around about America’s most anticipated sporting event of the year. And 99.9% of the storylines will be moot come Sunday at 6:29PM, when the ball is kicked off in the “House that Peyton Built (Lucas Oil Stadium).” Four years ago to the day, these two teams representing two of the biggest sports markets in the world met in Glendale, Arizona for rights to the Lombardi Trophy. If Sunday’s rematch can be half as good as what America was able to witness four years ago, the game will be a memorable one.
For nearly two weeks, we have been well aware of the matchup on Sunday for football’s biggest prize. And for two weeks, this game has been dissected and analyzed until I feel like there is nothing more to discuss. It gets to the point every year where it is time to just play the game. When the analysis and incite loses its luster. I feel like we have hit that point. Just like any big sporting event, this game will likely come down to one or two key plays. Four years ago, “The Catch” was the play that in essence ended Brady, Moss, and New England’s remarkable attempt at football immortality. Who will make the play this year that changes history?

It is finally the time that we have all been waiting for. And no I am not referring to “Tebow Time,” though there is a possibility of some “Tebowing.” America’s most popular sport is now down to the final 12. By Sunday night, the field will be narrowed down to eight, as teams desperately try to book a trip to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl on February 5th. What team will be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy around 10:30PM on February 5th?
I know you have all been anxiously awaiting the final “TheSportsKraze Pick’em Challenge” results. The final standings were as follows:
(TSK is the champion for a second consecutive year)
Let’s take a deeper look at the upcoming weekend.
Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans
The Word: A game of firsts. Houston is in the playoffs for the first time in franchise history and Cincinnati has not won a postseason game since January 6th, of 1991. Continue reading
