In Super Bowl XXXVI, a young quarterback named Tom Brady led the New England Patriots over a seemingly improbable victory over the St. Louis Rams, an opponent that was otherwise known at the time as 'The Greatest Show on Turf'. Now 17 years, the Rams, having since relocated to Los Angeles, will exact its revenge by defeating the Patriots and the league's oldest quarter (still Tom Brady) in Super Bowl LIII, according to a simulation run by Madden NFL 19. I call hogwash, but as a native (and now displaced) New Englander, I'm also incredibly biased. That aside, though, I do have cause for concern. It has nothing to do with Tom Brady's age—sorry Max Kellerman, but the cliff you speak of is... Read more...
Over the past weeks, we've seen a number of excellent deals on big screen TVs as we gear up for Super Bowl LIII, which will feature the Los Angeles Rams doing battle against the New England Patriots. The weeks leading up to the Super Bowl are perhaps your last best time to score a smoking deal on a TV until Black Friday and Cyber Monday to close out 2019. Best Buy is definitely getting into the gridiron spirit with a magnificent deal on the Hisense 55-inch 4K Roku TV (55R7E). The television has a regular MSRP of $499.99, but the retailer is currently selling it for a low $299.99. Delivery is free depending on your location (putting in my zip code in central North Carolina showed no... Read more...
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the greatest of all time (GOAT) at his position and it's not up for debate. Haters will hate and I'm fine with that. Deflategate was nothing more than a smear campaign by media outlets desperate for hits (I'm looking at you, ESPN), and a blatant power grab by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, otherwise known as Satan in New England. Pats nation will have an opportunity for revenge this Sunday and if EA's Madden NFL 17 simulation is any indication, there's going to be a lot of celebrating and partying throughout the Northeast US. After trailing 17-10 at the end of the first half, Madden NFL 17 has Brady connecting with wide receiver Julian Edelman for... Read more...
Microsoft Surface tablets have come under fire by one of the most successful head coaches in the history of the National Football League and by extension one of the most successful NFL teams, so the exposure is significant. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is done with using tablets on the sidelines. As outside observers of a sport, it's sometimes easy to dismiss the complexities surrounding the games we watch. While in all team sports, coordination between team staff is important, it's downright imperative in the game of Football and for the NFL. Depth charts, team formation photos, phone calls -- there are many bits of information can make or break a play. Football is quite... Read more...
There's little question that VR and AR technologies have the potential to make a major impact across a seemingly endless number of applications and industries. Today we're shown another example as Google and its friends at VISA and Bank Of America step up to showcase another fantastic application for the technology in the burgeoning Virtual Reality market. This time of year, Sunday is game day here in the U.S., with football fans all across the country gearing up to rally behind their teams of modern day gladiators. Constructing tactical offensive strikes with surgical precision or battering ram annihilation, and assembling demolishing defensive stands, the NFL and its armies of physical specimens...

Despite all the distractions over pigskin bladders this past week, the New England Patriots will be prepared for the staunch defense of the Seattle Seahawks and win Super Bowl XLIX, with quarterback Tom Brady earning the MVP award. So says Madden NFL 15 in an annual simulation that Electronic Arts has been doing for over a decade. It's worth bringing up that the annual Madden simulations have put together a record of 8-3 up to this point. Impressive, though not without some embarrassing misses, like predicting a Denver Broncos victory over the Seahawks last year to the tune of 31-28. Instead, things went bad for Manning and company from the very first snap, and it was the... Read more...
