Offensive Player Grades at Lions

23 points on the #1 defense in the NFL isn’t that bad. They moved the ball pretty well on a number of drives, too. Still, the offense had this game handed to them on a silver platter numerous times by the defense and they couldn’t close.

The game was defined early on by a string of three and outs for both sides while the Lions struggled offensively and the Saints could only rely on Detroit penalties to gain traction. The Lions entered the game just 2 for its last 25 on third downs, and without WR Calvin Johnson...

Start ‘em and Sit ‘em, Week 7: This Week Isn’t A Brees

If you decided to buck the industry trend this year and draft a quarterback early, there's a 66 percent chance you are happy. Sure, Aaron Rodgers put up an expected dud in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks, but since then, he's been the model of consistency.  There's also a guy by the name of Peyton Manning that you may have heard of before.  Yeah, he's pretty...

NFL week 7 predictions

With 11 of the 15 home teams winning in week 5 and just 4 of the 15 winning in week 6, the NFL has reached that point in the season where deciphering the good teams and the bad ones is significantly easier–the problem comes when 2 good teams and 2 bad ones play one another. Week 7 looks relatively upset free, with most of the home teams doing the winning. Thursday, October 16th...

Bye Week Analysis: Drew Brees

There may be no team in the league who's success or failure is so closely tied to their quarterback than the New Orleans Saints. And that's a responsibility that Brees wears like a badge both on and off the field. Brees' statistics thus far are somewhat pedestrian by his standards, yet his averages appear to fall in roughly the same range as in recent years. His yards...

WATCH: Drew Brees loses it after being slammed

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is usually calm and collected on the field. But in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, after CB Captain Munnerlyn came free and sacked him late in the third quarter, he lost it. It wasn’t about the sack, though. It was about the way he finished it. Munnerlyn blitzed off the edge on the play and as he hit the QB, he grabbed and slammed...
