Random thoughts, best quotes, and more from Week 12

I didn’t think it would be possible this season for any division to sink below the depths of the dreadful AFC South, that hell hole of a football hades where teams with 2-7 records were still in contention.  The Tennessee Titans?!  Egads. But lo and behold, in the last couple of weeks, the Colts have turned things around and the incredibly bad Houston Texans have turned into the incredibly slightly above average Houston Texans.  Not only is the AFC South going to put an over .500 team in the playoffs, right now they’ve got an extra team in contention...

Who’s Got the Edge In the Super Bowl MVP Race?

Hit the title/continue reading to read more. . . Joe Flacco – Quarterbacks are always the most likely choices to win.  Why Flacco over Kaepernick as the most likely?  One, despite being underdogs, I think the Ravens are going to win the...
