THOUGHTS ON ALL 32 TEAMS I’LL BLAME ON ALCOHOL BY OCTOBER

  The NFL provided an appetizer to the main course that is kicking off Sunday morning with the Falcons at Eagles on Thursday night. In spite of the nail biting (unless you’ve watched the Falcons before, in which case it seemed like a forgone conclusion) finish, the game was right up Pepe Le Pew’s alley. Hopefully the rest of the league can shake off the pre-season stink and put on a show resembling good football. To wet your beak a bit we’ve got some wacky, weird, worrisome, wholly unsubstantiated oddball predictions for this season, along with playoff picks. Just some…

NFL POWER RANKINGS 1.0

I HAVE THE POWER………… ….… RANKINGS Week three of the pre-season is wrapping up. Its now all about figuring out the last couple spots on the back ends of rosters, some cuts, some waiver wire movement, and keeping the stars safe between now and the start of the regular season. Before we’ve had the chance to watch a down of real football (and make no mistake, pre-season football isn’t real football. Its like calling a McDonalds hamburger a hamburger. Yes technically its a burger, but I mean, c’mon now) we’ve got to arrogantly prognosticate who the best of the best…

POTENTIAL PATRIOT TARGETS

Following the releases of Malcolm Mitchell, Kenny Britt, and Jordan Matthews, along with the abrupt retirement of Eric Decker the Patriots receiving corps depth is thinner than an anorexic model sipping on cucumber water. Left standing in the wide receiver meeting room are Julian Edelman, who is suspended for the first 4 games of the…

2018 NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ROSTER MIS-PROJECTIONS

In honor of the Taylor Swift concert tonight at Gillette, we’ve waited until today to unveil the pre-season roster projection for the New England Patriots. Why wait for Tay-Tay? Because the shelf life of this projection being accurate is about as long as a Taylor Swift relationship. There is about as good a chance of this projection being correct as there is of the Lakers winning the Larry O’Brien this year. Full honesty for  moment. When I hand wrote the projections out last night, I had Troy Niklas making the squad as a veteran blocking tight end. While working today…

THROWING DARTS BLINDFOLDED, AKA, PROJECTING THE PATRIOTS DRAFT

Welcome to another exciting edition of watch Sully make some educated guesses that make it look like he was never edumacated at all. In today’s futile gesture we’ll be reviewing the Patriots roster as currently constructed, while also taking a look at some viable draft targets in both the early and later rounds. The Patriots currently have 8 draft picks heading into next weekend. Two in the first round, two in the second, a third, two in the sixth, and a seventh rounder just for kicks. For the sake of the roster and the salary cap they could use a…

TOP DUCKER’S 2018 NFL ROUND ONE MOCK DRAFT

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale. A tale of a fateful trip. That started from this desert port aboard this tiny site. The mate was a mighty sailin’ lad. The skipper brave and sure. Five passengers set sail that day, for a three hour tour, a three hour tour. The day job started getting rough, the tiny site was tossed. If not for the courage of the fearless crew, You’re Ducking Right would be lost. You’re Ducking Right would be lost. The site set ground on the shore on this uncharted desert isle. With Top Ducker, Mrs.…

15 FANTASTICAL FANTASY FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS FOR THIS WEEKEND

I WOW, what a way to start NFL’s week 3. With a game that by all rights should have been uglier than that girl you hooked up with that one time on New Years at the Foundation Room (yeah I’m looking at you ____ ) on the schedule, the frog turned into a prince of a game. Jared Goff took steps to separate himself from the Blake Bortles dud crowd, and made the Rams feel much better about passing on Carson Wentz. It also initiated what I think is going to be a week known as the week of the…

WELL THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY

The banner had been revealed, Roger Goodell had been booed off the field, and crazy train was still echoing around Foxborough when the Patriots systematically marched down the field to take a quick 7-0 lead to open the 2017 NFL season. On the ensuing Kansas City possession, third round pick Kareem Hunt out of Toledo coughed the ball up on his first touch. Those first few minutes were the film negative of how the remaining portion of the game unfurled. The end result of which was what felt like the 2014 pounding that jumpstarted the run for the Patriots’ 4 Lombardi Trophy.…

YOUR CLIFF NOTES NFL PREVIEW

ITS HERE! Today is the day the Patriots raise their 5th banner, and Stephen Gostkowski kicks off to D’Anthony Thomas to open the 2017 NFL season (because you know the Pats will defer if they win the toss). You’ll find here a quick run down of how the season will play out. So if you plan on canceling your television services for the next 5 months, or going into a medically induced coma and wont be able to catch the games this season, you’ve come to the right place! Lets take a look at the standings in the NFC: EAST New…

Adopting a College Football Team

Football is upon us! The NFL kick off is less than a week away, but the college ranks have already stumbled to the stadium from their tailgating efforts ready to cheer on their favorite squad. In our close knit Ducking Group, there are more than a couple college football fans. ( The Duckers ) Of the seven, only ONE of them actually claim their alma mater as their go to squad. JJ reps FSU, even though he’s likely never even stepped foot on their campus. Slim Mex reps the Arizona Wildcats in spite of having played D3 ball at Lewis &…
