Should the Seattle Seahawks consider a QB during free agency?

There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender. If they don’t, they have no chance of competing for a title. Thus, landing an elite signal caller is priority No. 1 for every team. While the best place to find one is in the draft, not every...

Should the Seattle Seahawks consider a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the Seattle Seahawks are set at quarterback. Russell Wilson is a bona fide star, a clutch player who has already won a Super Bowl and was one yard away from winning another. And he hasn’t even reached his potential yet, given that he’s still developing as a passer. But behind Wilson, things are pretty thin for the Seahawks. Tarvaris Jackson is listed No. 2 on Seattle’s...

Rams Rumors: How far off is St. Louis?

Just how far off are the St. Louis Rams from becoming a playoff team again? Despite losing their starting QB for the year and their second-string QB for most of the year, the Rams are 4-7. 4-7 may not seem like a good record, but for a team in the brutal NFC West, with a slew of injuries, that’s pretty good.

Enemy Intelligence/Previewing the Titans-Colts Matchup

This was supposed to be the first Enemy Intelligence post of the season, but I ran into a snag. The Colts in their first two games played Broncos and Eagles teams that are much better than the Titans. They got down early to the Broncos and didn’t play well late against the Eagles. Both games, which I watched both live and afterward, were hard to get a read from. The Colts then...

Where I Inappropriately Process the Adrian Peterson Debacle

Listen, this is some real bad news, OK? Probably one of my top-five all time favorite Vikings sounds like he’s got some SERIOUS mental problems. He whips kids up pretty good. I don’t know yet if it’s fair to say he “beats” kids, because that evokes imagery of closed fist punches to within an inch of a kid’s life or something. He isn’t doing that, but he’s still physically...

While that gig helps pass the time, and brings in a paycheck, the former Heisman Trophy winner still itches to get back in the game. The quarterback who electrified the league with...
