There’s really not much in between for football fans in terms of the New England Patriots, but there is no denying that the defending Super Bowl champions are a well-oiled machine. The Patriots have made more noise than anyone else this offseason as a result of the “Deflategate” investigation that concluded New England quarterback Tom Brady likely...

Texans to be featured on HBO's 'Hard Knocks'

It’s official, the Houston Texans are set to be on Hard Knocks this season. The Texans were one of three finalists being considered for the show, “winning out” over the Bills and Redskins. Of the three franchises, insights into the disaster that’s been the Redskins in the Dan Snyder era might have been the most entertaining, but the Texans should turn out to be a good choice...

Can Johnny Manziel become an NFL caliber QB?

The saga of Johnny Manziel is well documented. Early in his career, everything seemed to come easy for Manziel. In the first four games of his college career, Manziel threw 10 TD with 0 INT and completed 70% of his passes. In his tenth game, he led the Texas A&M Aggies into Bryant-Denny Stadium and came out with a win against the number one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. He capped...

Michael Bennett compares Pete Carroll to Willy Wonka

Yes it sounds crazy, but Bennett meant it as a compliment…. Michael Bennett appeared in a telephone interview from his Seattle-area home on 750 The Game radio in Portland this week — and had what may be the most apt description yet of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll from one of his players. “It’s like playing for Willy Wonka,” the disruptive, and always glib, defensive end...

NFL.com puts asterisk next to Tom Brady in ranking of QBs

Tom Brady is a four time Super Bowl Champion and a three time Super Bowl MVP. His place in history has been made….or has it?

In an article published on May 19th on NFL.com, Bucky Brooks...

The Patriots have a “history of doing stuff”

At this point in the Deflategate mess pretty much all of America—no, North America—has had its voice heard. That includes MC Hammer and Donald Trump. The league meetings in San Francisco earlier this week provided a brief rest from the still relentless searing hot takes heaved through your television and computer screen. But prepare for the onslaught once more, and this latest...

Week one could feature Jameis Winston vs. Marcus Mariota

The topic has been danced around here and there, but post draft the table is now set for the possibility of the top two drafted players facing off in a week 1 season opener.

Indeed the Bucs are scheduled to host the Titans in week 1 at 4...

NFL passes rule turning XP into a 33 yard attempt

The NFL has followed up their Deflate Gate punishment of the New England Patriots by trying to put some pizzazz into extra point attempts. The NFL announced the extra point will now be kicked from the 15-yard line with two-point conversions remaining at the 2-yard line. The new rule also gives the defense the ability to score two points on returns. According to the rule change,...

Who will start at quarterback for the New York Jets?

The Jets recently added a fifth quarterback to their roster after their rookie mini camp. Despite already having four players at that position on the roster, the Jets thought enough of former BYU, Kansas and Miami quarterback Jake Heaps to have him compete with their crop of passers. This was a surprise as Heaps performed poorly for three college programs and couldn’t stick with...

Dante Fowler’s lost rookie season delays a potential slump-busting experience for the Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t been good in a long time. A lot of that can be traced back to the fact they haven’t found a reliable quarterback since the Mark Brunell days, but don’t discount the fact the Jags have for years failed to find somebody who can consistently produce as a pass-rusher. Some facts: With 196 total sacks since 2008, the Jags are the only team in football...

How do the Patriots replace Tom Brady?

Reviewing New England’s early-season options if indeed Tom Brady’s suspension holds up to start 2015: 1. Jimmy Garoppolo: This is easy. Garoppolo is already on the roster as the backup quarterback, and the Patriots used a second-round pick on the Eastern Illinois product last year for a reason. He presumably knows this offense well, and although he threw only 27 passes as a...

Jimmy Garoppolo faces a tough test in his first NFL starts

The NFL did more than drop a hammer on the New England Patriots and their quarterback Tom Brady with its Deflategate ruling. A four-game suspension of Brady along with stripped first- and fourth-round picks and a $1 million fine is the league’s attempt at an Antonio Brown dropkick. A suspension for Brady was fully expected. But the NFL’s wonky wheel of justice has now removed...
