Cleveland Browns big Free Agency Splash – More like a ripple!

One thing that I’ve always been successfully able to manage has been having overly high expectations.  Being a life-long Browns fan, the ability to temper my exuberance on all matters football has probably kept me from being committed, or at least going into rehab. Four days ago, I was anxiously awaiting the beginning of free agency so I could watch my Browns take that big pile...

2014 Saints Position Breakdowns: Offensive Line

The offensive line in 2013 was a complete mess until late in the season. Then something weird happened. The Saints made the move to have Terron Armstead replace Charles Brown at left tackle, the team started to run the ball not only more but more effectively, and that unit ended the year on a real high note. By the end of the playoffs the line almost felt like a strength on the team...

The Saints will not draft an offensive lineman in round one

Draft analyst after draft analyst mock an offensive tackle to the New Orleans Saints with pick number 27 of the first round in the 2014 NFL Draft. I have one simple question: Why?

Terron Armstead is ready to shine in 2014

I started this year off talking about the pre-season battle to take over the gaping hole at left tackle in the wake of Jermon Bushrod’s departure to Chicago. Charles Brown eventually won the battle, but not the war. By the end of the year, Terron Armstead worked his way into the starting lineup and maintained that position until their season’s unfortunate end in Seattle. Who...

ZB Game of the Week: Saints at Panthers

Two weeks ago in New Orleans, the Saints put a whoopin’ on Carolina, ending the Panthers’ eight-game win streak.
