End of Season Awards

What better day than the 23-year anniversary of the moment I fell in love with football to dish out the SPTKF8 in-season awards? With enough determination, fight, execution, and heart, you can convert any 3rd and 13 life throws your way. The SPTKF season awards have always exemplified not only the breakout seasons that show…

Championship Sunday Recap

1-1 today, 5-5 for the playoffs. Really surprised that the Niners went to a Crabtree fade route on their final play when it didn’t work in the Super Bowl. It’s not something they run routinely AT ALL and this is the second time they’ve ran it with their season on the line. If Richard Sherman’s…

Championship Sunday

NFL: AFC Wildcard Playoff-San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday Recap

0-4 Wild Card Weekend. Hey, that takes talent. D-D-D-Dalton Look-Be-Hind-You! Life was indeed like a hurricane for young Andrew Dalton Sunday afternoon, committing three of his team’s four turnovers in what was truly the only no-show of the weekend. Think about that. 8 teams on the docket this weekend and 7 of them showed up.…

Wild Card Sunday

Let’s try this again. 0-2. At least I got the O/U right on both to break you even. Chief Complaint Continuing the SPTKF tradition of predicting exactly how a game will play out and losing anyway, the Chiefs became the first team in NFL history to blow a 28 point lead in a playoff game…
