The Dallas Cowboys offense lines up against the New York Giants defense during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct., 19, 2014, in Arlington, Texas.

I had a bad week last week, and I’m sure you probably had a bad week last week too. It was bizarre, unexpected and, frankly, uncalled for. From where I’m sitting, I see no reason to dwell on it. Let’s press on! Cleveland vs. Atlanta – The Falcons lead their division with a  4-6 record, […]

2014 is shaping up to be a very transitional year for NFL teams and their quarterbacks. We’ve seen youthful shifts in teams such as the Vikings, Jags and Raiders, and now even more teams find themselves starting QBs that, frankly, they didn’t want to start two months ago. Zach Mettenberger gets to continue proving that […]

Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers

So, let me get this straight: The NFL, a league that suddenly prides itself on player safety, is allowing the owner (Jerry Jones) of its most popular team (The Cowboys) to publicly shame his star quarterback (Tony Romo) into playing this weekend with two fractures in his twice-surgically repaired back? Nine hours away in a […]

Last week, Questionable Calls limped into the locker room with an 8-6 record. It’s not something I’m proud of. Sure, you couldn’t even get Bill Swerski to pick Jay Cutler over Tom Brady, but Big Ben throwing for 522 yards? Colt McCoy beating the Cowboys? No one could have seen that coming. But alas, living […]

Two weeks ago when Questionable Calls debuted, I went 9-4 because I refused to count the tie between the Bengals and the Panthers. Last week I went 9-4 again, because, frankly, I forgot to throw a prediction down for Bears and the Dolphins. That omission ending up serving me well. Anyway, it’s on to a […]

Someone needs to tell Mike Nugent and the Bengals that the prediction business is tough enough; we don’t need to throw in the occasional tie just to mix things up. And seriously NFL, why is tying even an option? Just give each team a few more timeouts and put another fifteen minutes on the clock. […]

It’s hard to believe that when the dust settles on Week Six, we’ll already be a third of the way through the NFL Season. It seems like only yesterday that preseason gossip had us believing that Johnny Football might actually play this year and Blake Bortles probably wouldn’t. Through these first five weeks we’ve witnessed […]

The NFL is back and, as is the case with every new season, with an abundance of unknown variables set to play out. Teams have changed, players have aged, and new players have entered the league, once again creating a dynamic that is truly unique to the new year. NFL football, both on and off […]

Even though about 60% of the MLB season is in the books, the All-Star break represents the theoretical halfway point. Therefore, it’s a great opportunity to check-in around the league and assess our preseason predictions. Looking back, our crystal ball has not failed, as we accurately identified teams on the rise and set to disappoint […]

When we previewed the NBA Finals a few weeks back, we were too scared and uncertain to even predict a winner. The only confident prediction was a 7-game series but, in the end, the San Antonio Spurs dismantled the Miami Heat in just 5 games. What we expected to be one of the most closely-matched […]

Although the MLB season technically opened with two March contests between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks in Australia, the 2014 MLB season is now finally in full swing. This past offseason was rather eventful, as many players have new homes and many teams’ rosters have been shuffled. The Red Sox surprised everyone (outside of New England) […]
