Wednesday Morning QB (Championship Weekend)

The Super Bowl is almost here and the teams have been decided after an interesting championship weekend. Both games had plenty of storylines with the top ranked teams in each conference getting the chance to move to the Super Bowl. In the AFC there was a massive underdog led by the best young quarterback in the league as he tried to take on and beat a legend for the second week in a row. The NFC featured a second place team in a matchup of the tow powerhouses of the conference.

2014 NFL Preview: Road to Super Bowl XLIX

In 2013 the NFL decided to change things up from their usual location decisions and went to an open stadium in a cold weather city. It is generally not the decision to make for the league as they prefer to take weather out of the equation in the biggest game of the year. The NFL does not want to see a game come down to a gust of wind or a match where one team that is more used to the cold gets and advantage at the start of February.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 16)

There is one week left in the NFL and one week left for teams to make their last stand for the playoffs. That last stand for the playoffs would become that much more important after week 16 of the season when almost nothing was solved. Week 16 would be a week full of drama and for many teams it was a week full of ups and downs as many team believed their hopes to continue playing were dashed only to be revived moments later.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 14)

The NFL is only three weeks away from beginning the playoffs and that means the playoff picture is becoming more solid. Teams are beginning to lock up their positions in the playoffs but there is still plenty of room for the last three weeks. The NFC is the conference with the most teams already guaranteed a playoff spot. Both the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers have clinched their divisions and a playoff spot.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 5)

Week 5 in the NFL started off on a very sad note as a legend in the NFL passed away on Saturday. The longtime owner of the Oakland Raiders, Al Davis, passed away Saturday before the games leaving a massive hole in the NFL. Al Davis changed the face of the NFL and will always be remembered for his contributions to the league. Al Davis was almost always involved in football from a young age in Brooklyn.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 4)

The NFL is such an up and down league and this year the fans have seen it with so many comebacks and close games. The NFL has seen 19 games finish by three points or less which is the most in NFL history through 4 weeks. In week 4 the NFL saw another great image as there were a number of close games and a number of great comeback wins. The NFL has seen a lot of parity in the past years and it continues to arise. This week the comeback games showed this more than any others as three teams came back from big deficits while the three other teams gave up big leads.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 3)

The Rust Belt is a term that many people have heard in the U.S. and it refers to the North Eastern part of the U.S. who rely on the manufacturing industry. This term also refers to the teams in the NFL that lie in this belt. The term has become a true expression of the teams in the area that include the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, and Detroit Lions. The name rings true to the performances of these teams in the past years as all three have been at the bottom of the NFL for years including the Detroit Lions breaking the record for most losses in 2008 going 0-16. This year these Rust Belt teams are beginning to give their fans something to cheer about for once as they are looking to be strong contenders to make the playoffs.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 2)

The NFL makes a living off of the stories that they can talk about throughout the season and every season it seems like they continue to get more stories. This year seems to be a year of surprises as in week 2 in the NFL there were more surprises than week 1. The biggest surprises in the young NFL season are two teams that have come out to an undefeated start. The Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins have not been the most powerful of opponents in the last few years as they have regularly been at the bottom of the league. This year they are both out to a great start as they have both gone undefeated but have not done it easily.

Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 1)

The NFL season kicked off last weekend and many questions were answered as everyone got to see their favorite teams. The first week was the first time fans got to see their teams face off in a game that meant something. It almost didn’t happen after a long labour dispute that ended just before the preseason leaving many teams with just a month to get ready for the new season. This had its affects on some teams but there were a few teams that seemed to pick up from last year and continue to play strong. Week 1 was also a display of QBs as a rookie QB impressed while a QB that did not play got a lot of the headlines and another QB continued to make his case for being considered the best QB to ever play in the NFL.
