Monday MELF: NFC West

Another week, another Monday MELF. Reminder, the fancy-sounding MELF acronym stands for: Married Enemies Lovers Friends And it’s all based on a game I played when I was 12. And now, the QBs of the NFC West: M: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks For one, Russell is the hugely talented leader of what just might be […]

Monday MELF: AFC North

Welcome back to FifG, laydeez.* And welcome back to Monday MELF. For those of you who don’t remember what this is, on account of the fact that I have not posted a similar column for three years, let me remind you by way of reposting the origin story, if you will: As a preteen, my […]

Jesus Leads 7-9 Team to Playoffs

How did the 7-9 Seattle Seahawks win a ticket to the playoffs? Jesus played quarterback! Ok, it’s really Charlie Whitehurst. But is it any coincidence that a previously lousy backup QB had the game of his life in the NFC West showdown against the St. Louis Rams? You be the judge.   Ok, I’d like […]

Cute Football Player of the Week: Josh Freeman

I try to be fair and impartial in these Cute Football Player selections, but sometimes you just gotta be a homer. And as far as I’m concerned, the Cute Football Player of the Year is Tampa Bay Bucs’ QB Josh Freeman. Don’t know him yet? That’s ok. The Bucs are a smallish-market team, and they […]

Cute Football Player of the Week: The Tradees

In discussing the recent Brady Quinn/Peyton Hillis trade, a Denver friend insisted that that the Broncos got the best (read: cutest) player on the field. But, um, Peyton Hillis? Anyone? So, with that in mind, I thought we should delve into a major recent trade that sent Philadelphia Eagles QB Donovan McNabb to the division-rival […]

FifG Cute Football Player of the Week: Chad Ochocinco

Ochocinco. My #2 fantasy (football) receiver. And every lady’s #1 fantasy (ahem) receiver. Now that Chad Ochocinco (nee Johnson) is not just a Cincinnati Bengal but also a Dancing Star, he’s also one of the most searched players on FifG. And why not? 1) He’s adorable. 2) He gives good twitter. 3) He’s likes to […]

Cute Football Player of the Week: Peyton Hillis

Funny fact about this week’s CFP: I was tipped off to newly-minted Cleveland Brown Peyton Hillis‘ good looks by a dude on talk radio. When I’m at work, I listen to the Tampa ESPN station online, and a couple of the gentlemen on one of the programs today were discussing just how marketable Brady Quinn […]

Brady Quinn, Former Cute Football Player of the Week, is a Bronco

Well, geez. It’s musical QBs out there! Last year, Cute Football Player Jay Cutler left Denver for Chicago. This year, Cute Football Player Brady Quinn is leaving Cleveland for Denver. And Jake Delhomme, who’s cute but not in the official FifG sense, is headed to Cleveland. Quinn and Derek Anderson faced off in a year-long […]

Does He Have a Girlfriend? Tim Tebow/American Idol Version

That’s right. Tim Tebow slash American Idol. Because rumor has it that American Idol Top 24 member Janell Wheeler is University of Florida QB Tim Tebow’s on-again off-again girlfriend. Why their relationship is so hot and cold has not been disclosed, but perhaps it can be attributed to the fact that he has his pick […]
