Hey welcome back freshtakers to another edition of BoSo’s NFL fresh picks. It is now Week 11 and every week is essential a one week playoff for the entire league cause no team is officially out of playoff contention but sometimes have made that climb to the playoffs a very daunting one. Last week was a tough one for me as I went 5-9 on my picks so we shall see if my crystal ball has been properly fine tuned. The Patriots and the Panthers are the only teams still unbeaten so we will see if either can have a perfect season, and will they chase a perfect season or rest key players for the playoffs. Now for the picks for week 11. Continue reading BoSo’s Week 11 NFL Fresh Picks
Hey welcome back freshtakers to another installment of the ripest fresh picks brought to you by yours truly. The season seemed like it just started yesterday, However we are already in Week 10 in the NFL. The playoff picture is starting to take shape now. The most surprising team in the NFL has to be the 6-2 Minnesota Vikings. No one would have guessed they would be neck and neck with division rivals, Green Bay at this point in the season. The Failcoons are looking like the most flawed team at 6-3 and the bye week could not have come at a better time for the Dusty Birds. Dan Quinn has shown the leadership necessary to rally the troops. Scarily enough the Falcons could easily be 2-7 so it will be interesting to see their margin of victories against under .500 teams the rest of the way. Their defense is top 5 in rushing yards allowed so that tough nose defense Quinn created in Seattle is definitely paying dividends. The Panthers, Bengals, and Patriots are the only 3 unbeatens. One team striving on defense and a multi dimensional quarterback the other having an array of talent on offense plus an underrated defense to back Uncle Tom. The Bengals are the most balanced of the unbeaten cause their offense is just as raw as their defense. Off the gridiron Greg Hardy continues to play without penalty after more evidence has surfaced about the DV (domestic violence) allegations. Players like Adrian Peterson, Josh Gordon, and Justin Blackmon definitely now seem to have leverage to appeal their sanctions with the except of AP who already completed has penalty and back to being an elite back, Without anymore delay the picks for Week 10! Continue reading BoSo’s Week 10 NFL Fresh Picks
Welcome back to another year in the NFL!!!! Football is back Alas!!! The collegiate athletes did a fine job with the opening act, now it is time for the main event to take center stage!!! In an off season that saw a lot of new faces in new places it is sure to be an exciting year with plenty of twist and turns on the field as well as off it. Week 1 highlights two rookie 1st rounders starting off their careers against one another. QB Mariota vs QB Winston in what is sure to be an exciting match-up versus two of the upcoming stars in the league. I feel Mariota is light-years better than Jameis so that is a spoiler alert for that game. Peyton Manning is more than likely about to step away from the game after this season so we can see if he can go out like his boss John Elway, who defeated my beloved Dirty Birds in Miami. How ever this story ends Mr. Manning provided us with many memories, and he has always been a model citizen for the youngsters to replicate. Without further ado the picks for Week 1 in the National Football League! Continue reading BoSo’s NFL Week 1 Fresh Picks
Ray Rice and his family have really been through the ringer this past year. Ever since TmZ news leaked the elevator scene from hell, Ray Rice and his (now) wife Janay have been scrambling trying to restore the running back’s image with the media. Easier said than done, but Ray Rice is still killing the gym, doing weightlifting, cardio,cross-fit and everything in between at BlueStreak Sports Training Center in Stamford, Connecticut.
At only 28 years old, Ray Rice still has a couple good seasons left in the tank, but will any NFL team be willing to take on the 24 hour media circus that comes with the former Baltimore star?
The newest installment of the “Call of Duty” franchise will feature Seattle Seahawk running back Marshawn Lynch. After literally taking his team 1 yard away from there 2nd straight SuperBowl, Beast Mode will take out his frustration killing virtual soldiers in Black Ops 3. This will mark the first time in history a player will appear in a non football related videogame.
“You’re shooting up everything but always fighting for a bigger picture. The whole game is Beast Mode.” – Marshawn Lynch
When asked about the nature of the his character in the game. Marshawn said, he will be playing the villain.
Hopefully this game doesn’t cause a season ending injury, like the dreaded “Madden Curse” that seems to claim a different NFL star every year.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops 3″ is set to come out on Nov. 6 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, according to the publisher Activision.
Every year there are hundreds of mock drafts that pretty much list the best player available and assign them to the next team. This mock draft will be purely based on team needs and reports on what and who they’re going after. I included trade talk because that’s also a big part of the real life magic. Continue reading Fresh Take Sports 2015 NFL Mock Draft
