There are times in the NFL that will make a fan just sit back and shake their heads in either disgust or amazement. This past Sunday provided plenty of times for both.
Michael Vick is done for the year. The San Francisco 49ers have a QB battle going on as the playoffs near. Bob Costas is advocating gun control on a live television broadcast. What the heck is going on in the NFL?
Before last season, Vince Young called the Eagles the “Dream Team.” Now, Young isn’t even in the league anymore and the dream has turned into a nightmare.
Two coaches on the NFL hot seat will be fighting for their jobs on Monday night, but neither one of them may be safe once the season is over.
The Jets missed the playoffs in 2011 and don’t look like they are going to make it in 2012 either, as they currently sit with a 3-5 record. Now an anonymous midseason poll conducted by Sporting News says that Jets’ coach Rex Ryan is the most overrated coach in the NFL.
The second half of the 2012 NFL season is ready to begin. It is now time to see if the bizarro world of the NFL will become any clearer.

Last week couldn’t have been a fluke with the high number of picks that ended up being correct. This week looks a little more difficult, and there is a strong feeling that the win-loss record will be greater for the latter.
Coach Andy Reid of the Philadelphia Eagles has had to deal with a lot of personal and family hardship. The news released about his young son Garrett’s death just puts even more on a man and a family that has suffered enough.
Many truly thought that the name “Michael Vick” and the word “dog” would never be in the same sentence again. Little did they realize that the two would actually be under the same roof again.
