Camp Preview: Washington Redskins are going big on the offensive line

With each passing day, the Redskins offseason moves sink in a little more. In all, the team did well to address their special-teams unit, make a couple splashes at receiver, tend to gaps at linebacker and in the secondary and fortify a suspect pass rush. More than anything, though, they bolstered their offensive line. After a changing of the guard from Mike Shanahan to Jay Gruden...

Saints waiting on a move from Brian de la Puente ☆

I’m surprised that Brian de la Puente has made it this far into free agency. Evidently the center has yet to receive the offer he was hoping for. The New York Giants expressed interest in de la Puente a good 20 days ago but nothing has come to fruition as of yet. Ten days ago de la Puente had a visit with the Redskins, but again no contract was finalized. Since then, the Redskins...

Best guard in Indianapolis Colts draft history

Offensive guards are significant to the Colts as of late. Why are they significant? Well, because the Colts have had a bevy of issues with the position during the Andrew Luck era. Mike McGlynn is an abysmal right guard and rookie Hugh Thornton struggled mightily in Donald Thomas’s place due to injury. Coupled with the terrible play of center Samson Satele, the innards of the Colts...

Diving into the interior hog mollies of the NFL draft

It is no secret that the Indianapolis Colts need help all across the offensive line. Keeping Andrew Luck healthy and upright is vital to the Colts success for years to come. So investing in some big boys come May is crucial. The Colts need to hit a home run somewhere in the draft with an interior lineman, even though it will not be a glamorous pick. Last May the Chicago Bears selected...

That forced the Colts to give up their game plan and put them out of their comfort zone. Since 1989, 5 teams have won a game by 25 or more despite losing the first...
