Tonight is the NFL Draft and I am very excited. I am looking forward to seeing some of my favorite players from college move on to the next part of their careers. I am looking forward to seeing who the … Continue reading We Love a Good Quarterback Story
The NFL Draft Combine Participants list came out this morning. For the uninitiated, the Combine is where players get invited to do a series of drills to show off to the 32 NFL scouts in attendance just what they’re made of. The … Continue reading There is Only One Duck Invited to the Combine…
The New England Patriots are Superbowl 51 champions. The score is about what I imagined, but how the teams got there constituted maybe the most magnificent Super Bowl in league history, and was entirely unheralded. Man, I hate Tom Brady. Continue reading THE F**KIN PATRIOTS DID IT AGAIN
Better late than never. This is the part where I admit I was wrong about the NFC championship game. Let’s call it “Sean Spicer at a press conference after a 10 minute lecture from Steve Bannon” wrong. Green Bay isn’t … Continue reading For the 51st: Truth and Reconciliation, a take on the Super Bowl
The NFC: Green Bay @ Atlanta Once upon a time, Aaron Rodgers was just Brett Favre’s backup. He languished in the draft room, and spent a few forgettable seasons watching a legend get all the reps. Feels like an eternity … Continue reading For the 51st: Aaron’s thoughts on Conference Championship weekend
I ran out of time yesterday to fill out the second two games, so here you go: Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers Miami started the year going 1-4 with their lone win over the lowly Browns. Coincidentally, a win against the Steelers started a six game winning streak. A loss against the Ravens broke up that streak, which heralded three wins in a row leaving the Dolphins at ten wins. What’s more remarkable is that the Dolphins lost their starting quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, towards the end of the season and were still able to look competitive. Pittsburgh started the season … Continue reading It’s Still Wildcard Week!
College football is over (save for one game) and we are going headfirst into the NFL Postseason. While we have teams that have been in the driver’s seat for most of the season, there has been no shortage of excitement and weeks 16 and 17 delivered the drama all fans love to see. The Patriots were locked in to a first-round bye for a while now, but David Carr’s broken leg helped them cement homefield advantage. It was also fortuitous for the Kansas City Chiefs, as well, who were able to win the division and ensure a first-round bye as … Continue reading It’s Wildcard Week!
The playoffs are here and I am wondering who I am going to root for since this is only the third time the Colts haven’t made the playoffs since 1999 (humble boast, and also of course I’m rooting for the … Continue reading The NFL Playoffs and You..and Me Too…Mostly Me
Chip Kelly is currently in the middle of what will surely be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Down 38-7, I would suggest that Chip stop coaching the game and tell his agent to find some landing spots for … Continue reading Chip Needs to Mentally Prepare For the Inevitable
My buddy AJ made a hot take last night on the best teams who could see a coaching change this offseason. Potential NFL coaches, if you’re reading, take notice: Honorable Mention: Indianapolis I don’t think they fire Pagano but if they do this is a franchise that may become the 2010s version of the late 2000s Chargers. Fire somebody, but not Pagano. 5. Kansas City Manning and Rivers are on the way out of the division and there’s tons of talent on the roster. A new QB could give the offense a spark if the coach knows how to use … Continue reading Power Ranking Potential NFL Offseason Landing Spots
