America’s craziest game show: “Who wants to win the NFC South?”

Ed Wyatt gives us an insight into the hottest new game show in America, “Who Wants To Win the NFC South?”

About Ed Wyatt

Ed Wyatt grew up in Halfway, Maryland, following the Baltimore Colts like his football coach father. When he lost his Bert Jones #7 jersey at the Lincolnshire Elementary School playground, he should have taken it as an omen, since the Colts left Baltimore for Indianapolis. Ed has managed to avoid full time work by talking on the radio, smiling on the television and tapping on the keyboard of his computer. He won a number of local Emmy awards with the Seattle-based comedy show Almost Live! and hosted the Super Bowl live on Australian television for nine years. He is a graduate of Stanford University.

Week 11 – Atlanta @ Carolina: Cue the playoff controversy

After Atlanta’s ugly win over Carolina, Ed Wyatt writes that the 4-6 Falcons are now tied with 4-6 New Orleans atop the NFC South, a situation that may help force the NFL to change its rules about which teams host playoff games.

Week 10 – Carolina @ Philadelphia: Monday night massacre

Week 8 – Seattle @ Carolina: The Panthers crash back to Earth

James Caughlin assesses the Carolina Panthers, a team that has already lost as many games – four – as it did in the entire 2013 season.

About James Caughlin

Growing up in Brisbane Australia, James got into the NFL during the 2000 season thanks to the Madden NFL video game. His cousins told him to use the Patriots (as a prank on him) but 3 Super Bowls and multiple winning season’s later, he has had the last laugh. Now you will hear him yelling at the TV around 4am on a Monday morning watching every Patriots game live.

Week 6: Carolina @ Cincinnati – “Back… and to the left”

Some days you get the Glengarry leads and some days you…well, some days you don’t even get the steak knives. Steve Baker reports in from Ohio with his take on a great game of NFL football.

About Steve Baker

Steve Baker cashed in his horses for choppers and went tear-assing around ‘Nam, looking for the shit. He’s been known to chopper in t-bones and beer and turn the L-Z into a beach party. Steve’s the defending ‘Most Pessimistic Dallas Fan’ champion and is in the midst of a life-long campaign to one day buy the Cowboys off Jerry Jones and end the madness. He’s also chief button-pusher for the Footy Almanac Podcast, so you can blame him.

Week 3: Pitsburgh @ Carolina – A return to form

New contributor Shane K is happy to see the Steelers ditch the fancy stuff and get back to what they do best which, among other things, includes winning football games.

Week 1 – Carolina @ Tampa Bay: McCown Madness Spoils Lovie’s Homecoming

Declan Boffa isn’t quite enamored of the “new look” Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who dug a deep hole for themselves against Carolina and couldn’t quite catch the Panthers.
