Why the Denver Broncos are declining

The Denver Broncos are no longer a threat to win the AFC. By the end of next season, they might not even push for the AFC West title. Denver has won four consecutive division championships and reached the Super Bowl last year. All of those accolades came under former head coach John Fox, who was surprisingly ousted after losing in the Divisional round to the Indianapolis Colts two...

Revisiting history: Super Bowl III

In this age, we have a tendency to only remember things which happened five seconds ago. Everything is the greatest of all-time. Current scandals will tarnish legacies forever. Last night’s game was a watershed moment. In reality, most of that talk is utter nonsense. Events are blown completely out of proportion, because so many don’t understand its context within history. Only...

Ten players to watch in the 2015 Senior Bowl

While the most important part of the 2015 Seniro Bowl was the practices, the game still provides ample value for NFL teams to still watch live and request game film. Some players thrive on game day, many need to solidify a strong week, while others are at positions where game film is more important than practice reps (running backs/linebackers). Here are the ten players, by position...

Three under-the-radar Super Bowl MVP candidates

The eventual Super Bowl MVP is often easy to predict long before the game even begins. That’s because superstar players tend to do heroic things on the NFL’s grandest stage. Of the players who have received the prestigious MVP hardware, over half have been quarterbacks (26), and only nine have been defensive players. It wasn’t difficult to predict that, say, Aaron Rodgers...

Top five Super Bowl venues

Over the years, the Super Bowl has been placed all over the United States. Traditionally, the game has changed cities each year, although once that was not the case (Super Bowls II and III were both in the Orange Bowl). Until last year, the Super Bowl was always in a dome or a warm-weather city, but East Rutherford, N.J. changed all that. Super Bowl XLIX will be in both a dome and...

15 draft picks that got Seahawks and Patriots to Super Bowl

You hear it time and again. You MUST build through the draft! Free agency is the devil! And actually, that’s usually true.

Will Todd Bowles turn around the Jets?

The New York Jets have been a complete mess over the past four seasons. Under the leadership of head coach Rex Ryan, general manager John Idzik and before him, Mike Tannenbaum, the Jets became a circus. It seemed capturing the back page became more important than winning football games, and the results were brutal. It all crested last season, when New York finished last in the AFC...

This Super Bowl indicates running game regaining value?

Let’s begin by travelling back in time to 2010. It was a strange and awful period in the human existence when you may or may not have woken up feeling like P. Diddy. It was also the final year before swift rule changes that made passing in the NFL about as easy as breathing. At the time Dan Marino still held the single-season passing record of 5,084 yards, a mark that had stood...

God doesn’t care about your football team

I’ve got no issues with players thanking God after great accomplishments, particularly wins. Happens all the time and the beautiful thing about our society is that everyone has the right to believe in what they want as well as the right to share those beliefs publicly. I also have the right to shake my head in disbelief at those who suggest that the man upstairs spends his time...

Will Chip Kelly move up for quarterback Marcus Mariota?

The Philadelphia Eagles have gone 10-6 in each of Chip Kelly’s two years as head coach. In 2013, Philadelphia won the NFC East but lost to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round. In 2014, Kelly could not overcome Nick Foles’ broken collarbone, falling a win shy of the postseason. After 2013, it appeared Kelly had his quarterback in Foles. The second-year quarterback was...
