Posted on November 26, 2019

Well, this week didn’t go as well for the fans as last week, but then again, nobody would have expected for the Washington Redskins to pull out a win over the Detroit Lions. So, we really can’t fault you on that one. This week, the fans ended up going 8-5-1, bringing their season record to 105-58-13. Now for a breakdown of each pick – bold indicates the winner of the game, italics indicate who the fans selected.

  • Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans
  • Miami Dolphins vs. Cleveland Browns
  • Detroit Lions vs. Washington Redskins
  • Oakland Raiders vs. New York Jets
  • New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears
  • Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints
  • Seattle Seahawks vs. Philadelphia Eagles
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons
  • Denver Broncos vs. Buffalo Bills
  • Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
  • Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans
  • Dallas Cowboys vs. New England Patriots
  • Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers – clearly, you fans love seeing polls end in ties
  • Baltimore Ravens vs. Los Angeles Rams

Don’t forget, fans! NFL Week 13 picks open up TOMORROW MORNING on Twitter! And now for the best part: our favorite moments from Week 12!

  • This fan sneaking a whole pumpkin pie and can of Reddi Whip into the Bears game on Sunday is hands down, the best thing we’ve seen all week. Don’t @ us – you know it’s true.
  • Players tend to get a little flashy when they arrive at the stadium prior to the game, but the Houston Texans LBs just raised the bar this week by rolling up in Mortal Kombat outfits, and it was everything we didn’t know we needed in our lives.
  • Will the NFL Officials ever stop making terrible calls and/or stop missing blatant calls? We get the feeling they’re the ones that post “New Year, New Me” every January and not change a single thing, as made evident by this bogus tripping call on the Cowboys.
  • There’s been A LOT of hype around Lamar Jackson (especially from Mark Ingram), but let’s not forget about Marcus Peters, who really didn’t want the Rams to have anything to celebrate in last night’s game.
  • Technically this didn’t happen during the Packers-49ers game, but when we first saw the below clip we were pretty impressed…

The Patriots Have Fallen

Posted on November 4, 2019

The time has finally come – the New England Patriots are no longer undefeated! Yesterday, Tom Brady and his team lost to the underrated Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. The 37-20 loss for the Patriots will likely leave their defense with nightmares for a week after they allowed themselves to be blown out at home. Who knows, maybe this reality check will serve up some humble pie for the 6-time Super Bowl Champions – and push the Ravens to taking down the only remaining undefeated team in the league: the San Francisco 49ers.

What does that mean for the rest of the season? Well, for starters – ANYTHING Is possible. Sure, the Patriots typically have the easiest schedule every year considering how awful their division is, but if the Super Bowl favorites can lose to the Ravens the same week that the Miami Dolphins finally pull out a win, the Vince Lombardi Trophy could go to anyone. Well, anyone but the Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Falcons and Cleveland Browns. We just hope the fans remember this during the inaugural season of the FCFL. Every team will have solid talent on their rosters, so everything comes down to them. Their play calling abilities will be what makes or break their team’s season. So, no matter how good one team may seem, the fans can change everything with their voting power. What else did you expect from the Fan Controlled Football League?

NFLPA Takes Over Family Feud

Posted on July 15, 2019

Summer programming isn’t always the best, but we’re thankful we have Celebrity Family Feud to keep us entertained! Last night we tuned in to watch the NFL Players’ Association take over, with one team comprised of All-Stars, and one of Hall of Fame Legends. The NFLPA grouped Cameron Heyward (Pittsburgh Steelers, DE), Bradley Chubb (Denver Broncos, LB), Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens, QB), Stephon Gilmore (New England Patriots, CB), and Michael Thomas (New Orleans Saints, WR) for their “All-Star” team. They played for the Professional Athletes Foundation.

On the opposing side, we saw five Hall of Famers – Aeneas Williams (DB), Brian Urlacher (LB), Tim Brown (WR), Dermontti Dawson (Center), and Jackie Slater (OT) – who played for the Team Gleason Foundation. We don’t want to give too much of the episode away, but if there’s anything we learned last night, it’s that the NFL Legends are the team to beat! Could that be because they are more in tune with what’s happening outside the world of football? Or maybe it’s because they have a lot of free time in their retirement to brush up on past episodes of Family Feud – we’ll let you be the judge of that 😏

We love seeing our Team Owners | Fan Captains on reality tv shows – Bobby Bones walked away from Dancing with the Stars with the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy, and Prince Royce is officially a Lip Sync Battle champion – so which show should be next? And which of our Team Owners should make their debut? Do we want to see Richard Sherman take on American Ninja Warrior? Do you think Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller could hold his own on Wheel of Fortune (with one of the puzzles being Milk Mommies, of course)? If we’re guessing at what the fans want – it’s all of the above. We think you’d love to see any of our captains on any show, whether it’s something that tests their physical abilities or the mental aptitude. Let us know who you want to see, and on what show, in the comments!
