Yes, this appears...

2013 NFL Draft: Geno Smith Atop Quarterback Rankings, Hoping to Follow In Matt Ryan's Footsteps

The 2008 NFL Draft stands out from the rest of recent draft memory. With just one projected first round quarterback, viewed as a late first round value, and only a handful of “playmakers”, the draft was viewed as heavy on lineman early, both offensive and defensive. If that sounds familiar at all, it’s becomes it’s remarkably similar to this 2013 draft class. Luke...

Grading the Coaching Hires: Steve Addazio and Boston College

It was not all that long ago when Matt Ryan and Boston College were ranked second in the BCS standings, thinking about playing in a BCS Championship game. It is amazing to recall that Boston College was a top ten football program just a few seasons ago.

NFL Quarterly Awards: Matt Ryan MVP?

This NFL season has gotten off to an exciting start.  The one thing about the NFL that we all come to expect, is the fact that you can NEVER predict what will happen. Many coaches rank their team’s success based off of how they perform through each set of four games. With that being said, what I’ve done is break down the first quarter awards. We have four quarters of football...
