TARGET ACQUIRED – Patriot trade possibilities

Is the dynasty over? Is it time to rebuild or re-tool? Is Thomas Brady returning? Is Jarrett Stidham the true heir to slytherin? Many questions are swirling around New England like a snow squall building momentum the NFL off-season is rapidly approaching. With so many aspects to consider; coach retention or replacement, drafting, free agency, trades, player development, we’re going to break it up a little. We’ll do it Marvel style. We’ll preview some trade targets tonight, potential break out players, who may be leaving in free agency, who may be arriving, and what are some names to look for…

REGULAR SEASON FINALE NFL DRAFT PROJECTION: Including Playoff Picks

With all but one game in the books (The 49ers are taking on the depleted Seahawks in Seattle as we speak) for the 2019 season, its time for most fan bases to turn their attention to 2020. While free agency and coaching staff changes will occur before the draft takes place during the third week of April in Las Vegas, draft prognostication will become a popular past time for teams looking towards the future. With that in mind, lets take a quick peek at what the future could hold with a First Round Mock Draft. The draft slots are set…

JUST HOW FAR AWAY ARE THE NEW YORK GIANTS?

This afternoon the New York Football Giants will square up against the Pigeons of Philadelphia. The record will reflect a subpar season for New York as they enter the last contest of their season with a 4-11 record. Even with that record though they can potentially knock Philly out of the playoffs. With the season wrapping up eyes are now turning to the off-season. So the question is, exactly how far away are the Giants from being a playoff contender? The answer: Not as far away as their record would indicate. Win or lose they’ll possess a top 10 pick…

YOU’RE DUCKING RIGHT WE’VE GOT A HOLIDAY SHOPPING GUIDE

Well well well. The yule tide season is upon us. On Thursday we’ll celebrate the pilgrim’s fall harvest feast while consuming copious amounts of alcohol and football simultaneously. And then┬áBAM its shopping season! Black Friday is one of the most horrific displays of human nature that anyone could ever experience. The anger, aggression, venom, and cunning displayed by what are normally very rational, sensible people is sometimes unfathomable. In the last few years, which has seen Black Friday become an ever menacing monster, along with the emergence of Cyber Monday three days later, we’ve also seen the creation of Small…

THE CASUAL’S GUIDE TO TURKEY DAY FOOTBALL 2019

There are three big days in any die hard football fan’s year. Superbowl Sunday, self explanatory. New Year’s Day with the plethora of collegiate bowl games. And thanksgiving day. By tradition that goes back decades, the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions always host games on Thanksgiving day. In recent years the league maintained its normal schedule, allowing for a Thursday night game. That game is on a normal rotation, no traditional participant. If you’re reading this as someone who is a very casual football watcher, let us give you some pointers and things to know about the games on Thursday,…

NBA TODAY : Version 1.0

The NBA Today. The National Basketball Association doesn’t function week to week like their football brethren. As such it just doesn’t feel right to do a weekly power ranking. So instead we’ll periodically check in to rate how the squads are currently looking. No doubt it’ll be fluid as we move along. Injuries, hot streaks, and cold streaks moving teams up and down the rankings. Just like the players. Some days you’re on top of the world, like Joel Embiid. One day you’re smacking around a rival like Karl Anthony Towns. Other days you’re coming up zeroes against a rapidly…

NFL POWER RANKINGS – WEEK 13

We’ve stumbled upon the last quarter of the NFL season. The bye weeks are all done, and we’ll be treated to 16 professional gridiron match ups weekly between now and the end of the calendar year. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel as the Super Bowl is now 68 days away. For some teams that, that light is coming from a big ole train that’s about to flatten their seasons. The time tested, accurate cliche’ that defense wins championships could very well still play out as we have two historic level defenses still holding onto…

NFL POWER RANKINGS – WEEK 12

So last weekend the wife and I made the trek out to Los Angeles so we could catch the Khalil Mack @ Aaron Donald game… which is really the only way to describe it, because the Bears and the Rams are grim reminders that NFL success if fickle. Last season the Bears and Rams were considered two of the ascending franchises in the league. A couple of star laden defenses, and young, high draft pick quarterbacks, paired with a pair of “quarterback whisperer” coaches. 2019 sees these squads playing more difficult, first place schedules and each has responded with an…

NFL POWER RANKINGS- Week 11

Coupled with an weekend excursion to Los Angeles for this Sunday Night Football Aaron Donald vs. Khalil Mack match up, and this will be a quickie for you. But if we didn’t duck in real quick, how would you know who is doing well?! So without waiting any longer, lets get in and get out. New England Patriots (Last week ranked #2) New Orleans Saints (1) Green Bay Packers (5) San Francisco 49ers (3) Seattle Seahawks (7) Baltimore Ravens (6)…

NBA ALL STARS – WESTERN CONFERENCE EDITION

Well, we’re a whole 3 weeks into the NBA season, about 8% through. More than enough time to prognosticate upon who will be representing their teams in the NBA All Star game next February in Chicago. Now, not everyone will get to be an all star. Disappointing to all the participation trophy givers and receivers out there. But this is a designation that requires hard work, sacrifice, extreme skill, and a bit of luck sometimes. A quick scan of the Western Conference shows 38 names that warrant at least some level of consideration. So before we get to who makes…
