NFL PREVIEW

Well, we’ve made it. The 2020 NFL is going to happen. Will it go the full season (my money is on yes)? Will a star by lost to Covid, whether for a full season, or a portion? How much will lack of packed stadiums play into the competition? Certainly the crowd fervor plays into home field advantage, and that will be missing. The “nightlife” factor of a city being visited is seemingly negated, but weather is still a concern. What teams will rise? What teams will disappoint? Can the old guard at Quarterback (Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger) hang…

NFL POWER RANKINGS

Welcome to your first 2021 NFL Power Rankings. We’re certainly glad we waited an extra few days as the signing of Cam Newton by the New England Patriots certainly sent shock waves through the football community. And in an effort to make this work obsolete as quickly as possible, I expect that Antonio Brown and Jadaveon Clowney will find landing spots as soon as that publish button is clicked. Even still, can’t let the fear of failure slow us down. We’ll drive forward and bring you a look into how the NFL landscape currently looks. 32. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS This ought…

WAY TO EARLY, INSANE, 2021 NFL MOCK DRAFT

We haven’t even hit training camps yet and its time to pump out our first 2021 NFL mock draft. Normally right now it’d be all about analyzing the NBA draft results and prepping for NBA free agency. Instead we’re all anxiously awaiting the return of baseball, basketball, and hockey at the end of next month, as well as watching to see how NFL training camps will open. We’re also rapidly approaching NFL Fantasy Football draft season. The season kicks off 11 weeks from yesterday, which puts the draft season 9-10 weeks away (depending on when your league drafts). That is…

PROJECTING THE PATRIOTS ROSTER

Well, it looks like we’re actually going to get baseball, basketball, and hockey back by the end of next month. Right when those seasons are ramping up to re-start, we’ll also (knock on wood), be entering into NFL training camp season. We’re just a hair over 11 weeks until the Texans get destroyed by the Chiefs on Thursday night football. In that honor, and since I’ve been meaning to post this for like 3 weeks, and in that time it seems like everyone else is posting their versions, we’re gonna go ahead and take a look at what the New…

NFL DAY 2 MOCK DRAFT- REMIX TO IGNITION EDITION

Well round one of the NFL draft was wild. It took forever for the first trade to go down, but once we got to the mid twenties it felt like every pick was on the move. You can find a running commentary of the thoughts and reactions we had as the round unfolded here: 2020 NFL DRAFT THOUGHTS AND REACTIONS – DAY ONE But now its time to turn our attention to day two of the draft. The second and third rounds will occur this evening. Each team will have 7 minutes to make their selection in round two, and…

2020 NFL DRAFT THOUGHTS AND REACTIONS – DAY ONE

Coming to you live from the living room in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Las Vegas that was tabbed to host the 2020 NFL draft, today and this weekend should have been a party unlike any the NFL has seen before. Instead we’re regulated to our homes and man caves (I wish I had a man cave) to watch the draft. League executives have rigged up make shift war rooms, zoom chats, and facetime calls to aid in their decision making process, and the commish, Roger Goodell is making pick announcements from his den. Hopefully this eliminates the usual “where the…

DEFINITIVE 2020 NFL MOCK DRAFT

We did it, we’re on the cusp of the 2020 NFL draft. All the presents are wrapped and under the tree, we’ve put cookies and whiskey out for Santa Commish. I’ve read numerous pundits and their “info”, I poured over mock drafts from others, and the ones I’ve created. I’ve played around with The Draft Network Mock Draft Tools.  All that info can be bit of an overload though, especially when about 90% of info out there is a smoke screen sent out by NFL staffers. So I blocked out all the noise, sat down, and created a 7 round…

DRAFT DAY OPTIMISM

Sometimes hope just springs eternal. Every year the cliché is tossed around in baseball’s spring training, that every team is undefeated, and for every team, THIS is going to be their year. Most NFL team’s don’t harbor that excitement around labor day. Sure, there is the adage of “any given sunday”, but nobody seriously thought the Bengals or Dolphins seriously had any chance of making real waves last season. The NFL does have it’s glass is half full season though, and that’s the NFL draft season. Every year fans and pundits pour over scouting reports, fall in love with youtube…

MJ’s TOP TWENTY TEAM MATES

With ESPN’s documentary debuting this weekend, The Last Dance will once again put the sports spotlight right on the Chicago Bulls, and their iconic franchise star, Michael Jordan. With no other sports to compete with the limelight ESPN moved up the documentary’s opening from June to April. So with the spotlight on MJ, lets take a few minutes to review the top 20 players Jordan played with over his NBA career. The key phrasing here is the best PLAYERS over his NBA career. This isn’t including playing with James Worthy and Sam Perkins at UNC, or his teammates on the…

DRAFT PREVIEW: PATRIOTS EDITION

A bit of fair warning as this is written, I’ve taken to dictating my thoughts to paper much in the same manner as Ernest Hemingway, or under the same influence that led Bill O’Brien to trade away DeAndre Hopkins, which is to say I’ve spent the better part of the day drinking. In all fairness, the content outline was completed before I sipped my first taste of bubbly this morning. The review here will be a very quick synopsis of each of the Patriots’ position groups, followed by potential draft targets for each group. A potential target on day 1…
