Reaction to the Armstead and Buckner Deals

Day 1 of the legal tampering period was a wild ride for 49ers fans and players alike. As expected, Arik Armstead’s contract was the first domino that needed to fall before the red and gold could begin making any other moves. Armstead was willing to bend quite a bit to help the team stay competitive and took a hometown discount on a back-loaded contract over the next 6 years. Paraag Marathe and John Lynch have bought themselves two more cheap years before the cap hopefully catches up to his contract.

NY Giants Free Agency Blueprint

The NFL’s free agency period begins March 18 and tons of eyes will be turned on the NFL’s off-season proceedings in these unprecedented times due to coronavirus. Additionally, the New York Giants now have $77.8 million in cap space. With Big Blue set to be big spenders this year, combined with the history that their most recent successes this century have come from big signings in free agency in 2007, 2011 and 2016, let’s take a look at some candidates who could be on the squad in 2020.

Detroit Lions From Worst-To-First Part Two: Deep-Dive Mock Draft

In order to truly contend this year, the Lions need to draft as many impact players they can get their hands on. This means punting on potential developmental players that may have higher upside for the organization in the long run in order to acquire playmakers that can fill out the rest of the holes on the team. This is a deep-dive mock draft that gives the Lions their best shot at winning (in our opinion).

Why Tom Brady Should Sign With The Tennessee Titans

With free agency being days away, Tom Brady is the biggest name on the market. Brady, who is 42 years old, is set to make the biggest decision of the off-season. He will decide if he wants to end his career with the most prestigious organization of today, or walk away from the only team he has ever played for.

Call off the Dogs on the “Arcega-Whiteside is Bust” Campaign

When JJ Arcega Whiteside was drafted he was taken to eventually take the place of Alshon Jeffrey. He was listed as 6-2, 225 pounds and has a 80 inch wingspan. He was heralded for his ability to make tough 50/50 catches and good instincts to track passes. When injuries raided the Eagles WR group, Arcega-Whiteside had to step into a position he wasn’t even close to being prepared for, crossed trained at multiple positions under Carson Walch and as a result the comparisons of him and DK Metcalf, Terry McLaurin and even the WRs taken beforehand over him, it’s looks bad. The 22 and now 23 year old rookie struggle to find his rhythm in the offense only finishing the season with 10 catches for 169 yards and a TD. Very disappointing indeed but let’s call off the dogs and stop calling him a bust.

Roughnecks Sitting Pretty at Halfway Point of XFL Season

After five weeks in the XFL, the Houston Roughnecks are unmarked in the loss column. Lifelong fans have yet to feel the unwelcome sting of defeat as their squad continues to emerge unscathed week after week. Saturday’s game may not have been pretty, but the result has the league’s best team moving to week 6 unblemished.

How the D.C. Defenders went from a Top Tier Team to a Bottom Tier Team

2020 NFL Combine Over Reactions, Interesting Predictions & Totally Rational Suggestions

Since approximately 2011, I have religiously sat and watched the NFL Scouting Combine. Nearly every second of the constant coverage has been digested; from Bryon Jones jumping really far, CMC dominating like no-one ever has, Steve Smith, telling Tyree Jackson to stop throwing the ball so hard in the receiver drills, everyone freaking out over people running .4 of a second slower or faster, to at least one person every year getting hit in the face in the gauntlet drill.

XFL Power Rankings: Week 5

Josh Johnson and the Wildcats appeared to have all eyes in the football world on them after their drubbing of the Defenders. Unfortunately, that attention may have caused some stage fright as they lost to a lackluster Guardians offense. The offense was able to push the ball downfield, but came up short when they needed points the most. They had 4 drives in the second half that made it into their opponent’s territory and got only a single touchdown out of them.
