Ranking all 32 projected NFL starting quarterbacks for 2017

A lot could — and probably will — change in the NFL between now and the second week of September, when the 2017 regular season kicks off. Teams have OTA offseason workouts and minicamps. Rosters can still change with free agent signings and rookie development. But right now, there are some large and small favorites to […]

Ranking all 32 NFL teams in terms of quarterback desperation

At any given time, a significant percentage of the NFL’s 32 teams are looking to upgrade at the quarterback position. Some are hoping for saviors. And others are in search of potential successors for their current starters. Rarely is anyone completely uninterested in potentially good quarterbacks. In order to establish a gauge for which NFL teams […]

The NFL’s 8 most overrated players

It’s hard to prove that an athlete (or performer) is overrated or underrated because perception isn’t something you can totally quantify. But I do spend an unhealthy amount of time consuming NFL Twitter, reading NFL analysis and watching NFL games. I know who’s getting love and who’s getting hate. And I know that in some cases, […]

NFL offseason divisional power rankings

Now that free agency and the draft are out of the way in the NFL, we have a feel for what every team’s roster will look like in 2017. And thus, we also have a feel for which divisions will be tough and which will be weak. Here’s how we rank the eight NFL divisions entering the […]

Which NFL teams will start talking relocation now?

It’s an NFL tradition. Team dissatisfied with its stadium/fan base/market/all of the above attempts to compel local government officials to buy it a shiny new venue using public funds by threatening to leave town. Plenty of teams have had success with that strategy. It’s a big reason why Mercedes-Benz Stadium is about to open in Atlanta, why U.S. […]

The 2017 New England Patriots just might run the table

I recall sitting with a few coworkers in the newsroom at The Score Television Network in Toronto, 10 years ago this spring, and gawking at the New England Patriots depth chart online. Somebody pulled it up and called us over to his workstation in order to broadly establish his point. The Patriots didn’t look like […]

Ranking all 31 NFL stadiums by their Yelp scores

It’s May, and there isn’t a lot going on in the NFL world. The Memorial Day weekend is upon us, a holiday which isn’t typically associated with football. But a lot of NFL teams have relocated to new venues — and in some cases, new cities — of late, so let’s take an updated look […]

NFL’s soon-to-be-approved new overtime format would backfire colossally

So it looks as though NFL owners are going to approve a proposal that would reduce overtime in regular-season games from 15 to 10 minutes, which has to be the most myopic, counter-intuitive and simply illogical rule change in recent league history. The rationale behind the change is fairly obvious. But the problem is that […]

Which NFL team will finally bite on Colin Kaepernick?

Regardless of why you think Colin Kaepernick remains unemployed — and it’s becoming harder to believe that his extended experience as a free agent has everything to do with football and nothing to do with politics — we’ll probably eventually reach a point at which public pressure boils over and somebody gives in and signs […]

Is the Saints offense transitioning to run first?

Sean Payton, run the football? Crazy, right? Consider how the run/pass balance has gone since 2006 in the Sean Payton era (note: 2012 he was suspended for Bountygate): Year Run % Pass % Pass Play % Ranking 2006 43.02% 56.98% 11th 2007 36.98% 63.02% 2nd 2008 38.01% 61.99% 4th 2009 44.84% 55.16% 24th 2010 34.96% […]

Jaguars’ Doug Marrone: ‘Blake Bortles Has Improved’

Jacksonville Jaguars’ head coach Doug Marrone has a big task ahead of him coaching the team back to contention. It has been a long time since the Jaguars were viewed as a serious playoff contender, but they feel that they have a chance to make a move back into the playoff picture in the next […]

NFL Training Camp Profile: Jay Ajayi, Running Back, Miami Dolphins

Jay Ajayi came out of nowhere last season as one of the top running backs in the NFL and helped shoulder the load for the Miami Dolphins’ offense. Ryan Tannehill desperately needs Ajayi to step up again this season and Ajayi is ready to prove that last season wasn’t a fluke. Ajayi has had off-the-field […]
