Guide To The 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft

There’s quite a load of difference as far as the hype machine goes when it comes to the NFL’s regular college eligible draft compared to the supplemental one. One is held at Radio City Music Hall and has months of hype preceding it with ESPN and NFL Network devoting what seems like 100 hours of programming to it. The other (supplemental) is held this year on a Thursday afternoon...

Shut Up, Ron Fowler 2: Troll Harder

Retro weekend.  Three out of four games against the Chicago Cubs honoring the 1984 National League Championship team.  And brown.  Lots of brown. You might think this would be a perfect time to announce that the Padres were working on new uniforms that somehow incorporate brown into the color scheme.  I mean, they’re honoring their past, right?  They wore the brown 1984 road...

Worst QB selection in Giants draft history

The New York Giants have missed a lot on quarterbacks in the NFL Draft throughout history. But among all of the quarterback they have selected since the inaugural draft in 1936, none have been worse than the selection of Duke’s Dave Brown.

So How Good Was Josh Freeman?!

Bros, so how good was that Josh Freeman on Monday night?! He balled out of his mind, didn't he? He played himself into some EXCLUSIVE company on Monday night, becoming the only quarterback since 1960 to attempt 50 pass attempts for zero touchdowns and throwing under 200 yards. SO BAD ASS. The only other ball throwing bro to do that was Dave Brown in 1995. I mean, come on! It...

New York Giants: Biggest Draft Day Regret in Franchise History

With the 2013 NFL Draft approaching, I wanted to reflect on past Giants drafts; more importantly their past 1st round selections.

Obviously, it’s so much easier to look back after the fact and...
