Five unsigned free agents who could help a lot of NFL teams

In a sport that has become nearly a year-round endeavor, right now is the only somewhat dead time in the National Football League. It’s a period when teams are waiting for training camp to arrive, the proverbial calm before the storm. As a result, not much player movement is happening; team-building for 2015 is already complete. Free agency and the draft are in the rearview mirror...

Do the Miami Dolphins have the worst fan base?

So my fellow Dolphins fans, apparently Emory University conducted a study and determined that based on certain metrics that we are the worst fan base in the NFL. I am not going to get into the numbers that were used like tickets prices, tickets sales and yada yada. There are so many things that make no sense in it. However, I keep hearing how bad of a fan base we are and quite frankly...

Why 2015 could be rough for Raiders tackle Donald Penn

Honestly, no one expected Donald Penn to amount to more than a transitional player, making way for a 2015 draft pick to take his starting spot. Reggie McKenzie didn’t choose a tackle with anything resembling a high pick. That should give Penn cause to believe his is the Raiders’ left tackle for the foreseeable future. As we progress toward kickoff, Carr’s blindside protector...

Before we move ahead, we need to look back and figure out what happened to the trainwreck that was the 2014 season. We can predict a little better how the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will perform next season by first analyzing why things went so horribly wrong last.

Five players the Oakland Raiders need to see more of

The Oakland Raiders are on the back end of a rebuild that began with tearing the team down to the studs. Since then, Reggie McKenzie has tried to build the team through the draft while trying to stay afloat with free agent rentals.

Well I’m sure Lovie would feel the same way some 40 years later! Lets go over the positions and compare 2014 to 2o15...

The Oakland Raiders have a number of starters who will not be returning in 2015 and who will need to be replaced. Both starting corners, for example, will be free agents who are unlikely to be brought back.
