This Sunday the 2014-15 NFL season will officially come to an end, and Wade Phillips didn’t set foot on a single sideline. Let’s make a pact to ensure that never happens again as long as he’s willing and healthy.

The Washington Redskins and their forgotten dynasty

When the word dynasty comes up in NFL circles, almost everybody thinks of the same teams. The Cleveland Browns dominated the 1950’s, followed by the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots in each subsequent decade. Somehow, the Washington Redskins from 1982-91 get forgotten. Washington, with head coach Joe Gibbs at...

Men who hit the open market are either washed up or not talented enough in most cases, with the Peyton Manning saga of 2012 being a massive outlier. This year, we see another...

Will the first-round running back return in 2015?

The state of the first-round running back is a commentary on more than just a position. It speaks to organizational philosophies and values. It shows the team-building priorities in a league increasingly driven by passing. And it reflects a hesitancy to invest heavily in a player whose football life is, at best, fleeting.
