New York Giants Excited About Offensive Outlook With Healthy Weapons

New York Giants Excited About Offensive Outlook With Healthy Weapons

It wasn’t long ago that we all counted the New York Giants out of contention and we started taking Eli Manning as a joke. It was hard not to with how hard things where getting for Eli and the Giants to grasp Ben McAdoo’s offensive scheme. The loss of Cruz, the inconsistency of Eli Manning, [...]

Saints Hoping to Return to Explosive Offense with Spiller

Saints Hoping to Return to Explosive Offense with Spiller

The New Orleans Saints didn’t quite look the same last year. Sure they had the same core offensively that they have had since their championship back in 2009, but the offense ran at a much different pace. Probably the reason why, in a very uncharacteristic manor, the Saints lost their last 5 home games and [...]

Steelers Safety Troy Polamalu Retires

Steelers Safety Troy Polamalu Retires

It wasn’t that long ago where Troy Polamalu was one of the most dynamic defenders in the game. He anchored those Steelers title teams on the defensive side of the ball from the secondary but hasn’t been the same player over the past few years. At the age of 33, Troy has decided to hang [...]

Top NFL Free Agent Wide Receivers

Top NFL Free Agent Wide Receivers

Things change through the years. People get older, players slow down, and respect and loyalty dwindle as production falters. But even then, you’d think being a respectable wide receiver who has made numerous plays in your career would lead to interest from multiple teams when you hit free agency.

Will we ever take the Detroit Lions seriously again?

Will we ever take the Detroit Lions seriously again?

All Teams have up and down years. They have rebuilding periods. They have dominant periods. It’s really hard to predict where teams will end up year after year and who is truly a contender. Not all teams have Tom Brady and Peyton Manning who we can count on to be in their conference championship game [...]

Colts Pick Up Fifth Year Option on Andrew Luck

Colts Pick Up Fifth Year Option on Andrew Luck

This was an absolute no-brainer. The Indianapolis Colts have picked up the fifth year option on Andrew Luck, who initially singed a 4-year, $22 million contract after being selected first overall a few years back. In no time, Luck has taken a team from dead last to title contender. He’ll be the highest paid player [...]

Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell Suspended For First 3 Games of 2015 Season

Le’Veon Bell had an eye-opening season for the Pittsburgh Steelers and pretty much carried the offense along with Antonio Brown (and Big Ben, of course). The knee injury that ended his season looked a lot worse than it ended up being, so fans were excited that he’d be back to start next season. But not [...]

Wes Welker to Visit With the Dolphins

Wes Welker to Visit With the Dolphins

Because Wes Welker elevated to NFL prominence with the Patriots, we seem to forget that he has a career before landing in New England. He began his career with the Dolphins (after a very brief stint with San Diego) and was so successful against division-rival New England, that they traded for him in 2007 But [...]

Tony Romo Owes Duke’s Jahlil Okafor a Superbowl Win

Last year when Duke was recruiting now Duke star player Jahlil Okafor, Tony Romo bumped into Okafor at a Duke game. The soon to be #1 pick in the 2015 NBA draft was able to snap a picture of the moment and post it to instagram. It is the caption that is interesting. Apparently they [...]
