Why the Titans should not trade for Philip Rivers

The San Diego Chargers and Philip Rivers might not be a hot item for much longer. There has been rampant speculation that this could be the last year of Rivers wearing the lightning bolt, fueled by the quarterback’s comments to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, stating that he has no intention of signing an extension before his contract expires after this season.

Best picks ever at every spot in first round of NFL Draft

Since the first draft in 1936, teams have selected young players coming out of college in the hopes of getting better. More times than not, though, those selections result in busts. These players are often viewed as saviors the minute they don the team’s jersey, but the reality is the odds are against them. Every once in a blue moon, though, a team hits the jackpot in an epic...

Rumor: Browns are the front-runner for HBO’s Hard Knocks

Hearing the #Browns are front-runners for next featured team on HBO Hard Knocks series. — Vic Carucci (@viccarucci) March 23, 2015 So that’s interesting. Obviously the big draw would be Johnny Manziel and the QB battle. Personally, I would love to see Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles.

The top 3 value signings of free agency

NFL teams can’t really win free agency. It’s impossible to win something that exists right now only as news that bounces across a ticker or your computer screen. None of the signings have had any influence on the winning and losing that actually matters. You know, the games. Free agency can only be won or lost in hindsight. And most often the winners aren’t those who dump money...

Are the Denver Broncos still a playoff team?

The Denver Broncos have had a turbulent offseason. After getting Peyton Manning to take a $4 million pay cut a few days prior to free agency opening, there was speculation general manager John Elway would retain a key player or two.

Quick analysis: Five receivers will go in first round

The 2015 NFL Draft is not until April 30, but the talk will begin heating up again with the bulk of free agency finished.

While free agency is fun, it is the draft where champions are built. In this year’s edition...

Philip Rivers might be playing his final year with the Chargers

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has thrown for 36.655 yards and 252 touchdowns over his 11-year career. In a day and age where having a quality quarterback is of paramount importance, it seems asinine that a team would even consider trading such a player when good years are seemingly remaining. Yet, that crazy scenario seems a possibility in San Diego, with Rivers...
