Chip Kelly’s Influence Continues To Fuel Oregon

Vernon Adams, Jr. is the first Oregon starting quarterback since Kellen Clemens to never work under Chip Kelly’s tutelage. Let that sink in. Clemens, a gutsy Ducks quarterback who played a major part in one of Oregon’s best years of the last decade in 2005, is already in his tenth NFL season. He’s been married for over a decade. He’s got two kids, and has played for five...

After the sudden offseason trade by the Rams, the quarterback position on the team has a new face bound to have some success. This new...

Jets 2nd Round Draft History Down Right Stinks

The saying goes that stars are born in the first round of the NFL Draft, but the meat and strength of a team gets drafted in rounds two and above. I'd like to add weight to that statement, pegging the second round of the draft as the most important decisions a team will make. Their ability to avoid busts and snag sleeper hits comes to a head in round two. It's no wonder the Jets...

Should the San Diego Chargers consider a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the San Diego Chargers are set at quarterback. Philip Rivers is a bona fide star, a clutch player who makes the franchise a Super Bowl contender. And with Mike McCoy as his head coach, the QB continues to improve. But behind Rivers, things are pretty thin for the Chargers. At season’s end, Kellen Clemens was listed No. 2 on San Diego’s depth chart. That’s a scary...

St. Louis Rams defense was missing in action against the Cowboys

Get out to an early lead, control the game via the run, and let the pass rush go to work. That formula led to some surprising success last season when the Rams were forced to reconsider their identity in the wake of losing quarterback Sam Bradford in Week 7 and move forward with backup Kellen Clemens. The Rams took a tough blow in losing their starting quarterback, but rallied around...

St. Louis Rams Feeling a “Sense of Urgency” After Loss to Vikings

Jeff Fisher, the ever passionate, yet stoic coach he is, will not let one performance dictate the season. Rams’ players and fans alike found this out last year, and the year before.

Just last year, the Rams came to Indianapolis, a playoff team, and spanked them 38...

San Diego Chargers roster projections revisited

As the Bolts’ Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football looms, it’s time to revisit that prediction. As you will find with any sort of prediction, there was a lot of guessing, several shots in the dark, a couple...

It’s perfectly OK if you’re still in mourning. After quarterback Sam Bradford re-tore his left ACL in the first quarter of the Rams’ preseason game against the Browns last Saturday, the promises that come with a new season, an offensive revival, and just maybe breaking that .500 win barrier look a bit flushed. However, the show must still go on in Bradford’s absence, and...

As good as the effort and intensity levels were for the Chargers last week, they were equally as bad Friday night in Seattle.
