I had started doing the NFC West piece in traditional fashion, with the intention of doing all four teams at once. However my writeup on the Rams was so long (as long as some of the entire other divisions combined) and contained so many controversial topics, that I felt their offseason analysis deserved it’s own […]

I hope all our followers had a nice Memorial day weekend. We’ve been enduring the post-draft hangover, where the most interesting news is typically that a draft pick has signed. However, OTA’s have just begun for most teams, so we will start to see those rumors about how much teams love their draft picks. At this […]
Next up, lets take a look at one of the most competitive divisions in the league; the NFC South.
In the Drew Brees / Sean Payton era, the New Orleans Saints have been one of the best teams in the league, winning at least 11 games in four of the past five seasons. That other season, of course, was the year Payton was suspended as punishment for “Bountygate”, where the Saints had two different […]
Sorry for the delay between posts, my sister just graduated from college and I’ve been busy with a few other things.

Calvin Johnson is perhaps the most exciting player in the game, and the cupboard of roster talent is certainly not empty. However, a 4-12 2013 meant a […]

Long-time coach Gary Kubiak was fired, and a new regime headed by Bill O’Brien was given the reins. In the draft this year they really added some power in the trenches. Plenty of ink has been spilled […]
Lettuce push onwards! Next up, the ultra competitive NFC East.
Now that the draft is behind us, I’d like to revisit each team’s plan of attack in free agency. It may be slightly unfair to praise or knock a team for certain signings, since it’s impossible to know who will be available at given draft slots, but these are the offseason challenges for each franchise; […]
When the 256th and final selection of the NFL Draft had been used, 90 of our top 100 prospects had been drafted. When life hands your blog such a set of nice, pleasing round number lemons, you make list lemonade. I’m going to talk about those ten prospects who went undrafted, discuss why we liked […]
