NFL POWER RANKINGS- Week 11

Okay, we’ve got a few irons in the fire as far as articles coming at you from You’re Ducking Right. 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…

NFL POWER RANKINGS WEEK 10

After a season long run atop the leader board the Patriots of New England have been thwarted, and a nation rejoices, for now. Bill Belichick and his squad are on to the bye week before revving up for a Superbowl LII rematch with the Philadelphia Eagles. We’ll see how long this win drought lasts in Foxborough, but after the Sunday night loss against the Lamar Jackson led Ravens there were a lot of pundits running around singing Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead by the munckins of the lollipop guild. So if the Patriots have been knocked off their perch…

FIRST CRACK AT MOCKING THE 2020 NFL DRAFT

Mock us if you will, but now that we’re half way through the NFL season, and only have about a month left of college football (bowl season withstanding), we’re gonna give it the ole’ college try with our first attempt at projecting what this spring’s draft may look like. Scheduled to take place in beautiful Las Vegas between April 23-25 (come on out and experience Vegas, if you haven’t been April is a fabulous time to come out, take part in the draft festivities and get in a round or 3 of golf). Right now the Dolphins are scheduled to…

NFL WEEK 9 POWER RANKINGS

Welcome to the week 9 NFL rankings. A quick review of who is moving on up, and who is a tumbling on down as the season progresses. We’re reaching the point where a big name going on the Injured Reserve list is a weekly exercise. This week saw Broncos starter Joe Flacco and Texans superstar philanthropist JJ Watt end the year earlier than expected. Its also deep enough into the season as some teams are starting to get guys back. This Sunday could see the Patriots unveiling their 2019 first round draft pick, wide receiver N’Keal Harry, the big bodied…

2020 NFL QUARTERACK TINDER

We were inspired today by ESPN radio talk show host Will Cain (The Will Cain Show can be found on ESPN radio and is shown on ESPNews Monday through Friday from 3PM-6PM EST) and his predictive analysis of where some of these players will be when the music ends for the 2020 version of quarterback…

NFL POWER RANKINGS WEEK 8

Let me take you back, back in time. The year is 1996 (or maybe 1997, who knows, it blurs together) yours truly, the top ducker walks into history class and sees one of his classmates doing some last minute cramming. He asks her how she is, and if she is ready for that afternoon’s final exam. She proudly tells him how much she has studied and that she is prepared. She then asks how much he had studied, an idea he scoffed at. He told her that he had been in class, and thus felt prepared enough. A response that…

POCKET GUIDE NBA SEASON PREVIEW

Welcome to the next eight months of your life. The 2019-2020 NBA season is upon as. The battle for L.A. is the featured match up on night one of the NBA season, and many expect the Western Conference Finals to be the finale of the match up of superstar duos. Lebron and The Brow vs. Kawhi and Paul George. But lets slow down. That’s a late May/June event. Lets deal in the here and now for a moment. This is being billed as one of the most exciting seasons in NBA history with no overwhelming favorite, and by my count,…

NFL POWER RANKINGS WEEK 7 AND BONUS FEATURES

We’re now well into bye-week season, and the cream is starting to rise to the top. The early MVP race is shaping up nicely, especially with injuries dragging the Chief’s Patrick Mahomes back to the pack. Two teams remain undefeated, one of which is very unexpected, and two teams remain winless, neither of which is shocking. With the trade deadline a little over a week away, more than a couple teams should be embracing the Dolphins philosophy of tanking. But we’ll have a more in depth look at that later. For now, lets get to it. After 6 weeks of…

NFL POWER RANKINGS – WEEK 6

Some teams are still walking around doing their best Jay-Z impression: I got 99 problems, but a loss ain’t one. The cream is starting to rise to the top. With about a third of the season out of the way the contenders are starting to show themselves, and The Pretenders would walk 500 miles if it meant they got a sniff of the playoffs. Lets take a moment to review the current power rankings before a bonus “Top Ducks” feature ranking the top 5 quarterbacks and running backs in the game today. New England Patriots 5-0 (Previous ranking: 1) Kansas…
