We’ve got some time on our hands in terms of waiting for football at the moment. What better time to take an in depth look…
This week, that means some advice on four veterans that you should be wary of in your draft. This doesn’t mean that the players listed below…
There is always a prospect that comes out of the NFL combine with some buzz, whether it be due to their fantastic measurables, an unexpected position switch…
Just because a player doesn’t excel immediately, doesn’t mean they won’t be stars. Some prospects take lots of time to develop, but we always…
What if I told you, that an NFL quarterback threw for 5,109 yards and added 33 touchdown passes. What if I also told you, that he threw the ball to the opposing team’s 30 times. What if I told you, that he would be replaced by the greatest of all time, Tom Brady.
It’s been a rocky road this last week. From losing March Madness, to the NBA, and then all spring sports, and then all sports in general. We are spiraling, but we can count on the NFL to give us something, a little nibble to keep us at bay.
As we get closer to April’s draft we must look at prospects past the first round. Xavier McKinney is where we start. Now, his stock is rising and some seeing him going as high as the middle of the 1st. It’s warranted, however I can see the Giants grabbing his services by trading back in, or the early 2nd. We’ve discussed how they can build into their young secondary, let’s take a look.
Tristan Wirfs, a 6’5 322 lbs junior out of Iowa is not the most athletic draft prospect, that’s Jedrick Wills, not the most physically gifted or pro-ready, that’s Andrew Thomas, but he’s perhaps the most technically sound offensive lineman. As mentioned in a previous article, tackle duo of Mike Remmers and Nate Solder that allowed more combined pressures than any pair in the NFL, for the Giants. Both side of the trenches need to be addressed this off season, in the draft and free agency and unless Chase Young falls (unlikely) or the Giants move up (even more unlikely, there’s early reports their moving down with a quarterback needy team), they’re better off getting value drafting offensive-line early in the draft. Let’s discuss an early riser, the Iowa product, Tristan Wirfs.
Among such teams, the Seattle Seahawks seemed to enjoy a bit of a “surprise” season, as many in the media have coined it, with many experts (and pundits alike) still viewing Seattle as being in its rebuilding years. Just don’t tell that Pete Carroll and John Schneider. The head coach and GM super-tandem have been at this for a decade now, compiling an impressive regular-season record of 100-59. What’s even more impressive is the team’s 8-4 record in the post-season in that same span, including 2 Super Bowl appearances and 1 Super Bowl win, Seattle’s first-ever NFL title. Earlier success of the team in the last decade was clearly due to one of the most imposing defenses in the history of football – the Legion of Boom.
I truly believe that this sport is like no other, and part of why I love it so much is connecting with other people about the NFL; college ball; the draft; what strategies their team might go for in the coming year; what we think about certain players and their trajectories and any other related topics that cross our minds. Basically, I love talking about the game.
From Bettis to Bell with all the Redman, Parker and DeAngelo’s in between. What is the situation in Pittsburgh with the running back position?
The Philadelphia Eagles made it to the playoff finish held together by scotch tape. However their playoff hopes ended with a Carson Wentz concussion and the 40 year old Josh McCown doing his best but still on a losing end to the Seahawks 17-9. Even with the injuries they have building blocks with Wentz, Sanders, Goedert, Dillard and steady vets such as Brooks, Johnson, Cox, Graham and Jenkins if a deal is finalized. With a long offseason ahead for Howie Roseman, he needs to make some tough decisions and try to reload for another playoff push next season. Here are my thoughts on the 16 free agents for the Eagles and whether they should stay or they should go.
At the time of the 2019 NFL Draft the `consensus feeling of Giants fans and NFL spectators was confusion, disappointment and dread with the selection of Daniel Jones at the 6th pick in the 1st round. This distaste trickled down to the rest of the draft, although most fans came to feel hope and potential for the new Giants.
Welcome to week 17 where teams give it their all one last game especially if they are eliminated from playoff contention. This game is exactly that, Colts at Jaguars. Before Andrew Luck retired this looked like the most important game of the year for both teams. In this case it has not lived up to expectations. We will being seeing a tough game out there this Sunday. I do like a few players in DFS of course, there’s always a couple plays.
Last week in the snow Aaron Rodgers and the Packers were able to do whatever they wanted on offense through the air. Rodgers had 4 TDs, 2 to Davante Adams, 1 to Allen Lazard and 1 to Mercedes Lewis (his first of the season). The one thing the Packers did not do well was with running the football. Aaron Jones had 18 yards and Jamaal Williams had 41 yards. That’s fine because they were playing a two win team but if they want to beat an elite team like the 49ers, Saints, or Seahawks they will need to be better.
Mark Ingram was the best hype man to bring in Lamar Jackson for the post game press conference right after a dominant win over the Houston Texans in week 11. With a 70% completion rate, 222 passing yards, and 4 passing touchdowns; how can you still say this guy is not the real deal behind center? With Lamar playing as amazing as he did, the big story is how the Ravens Defense is coming to life as the second half of the season is underway.
