In Depth 2015: Kansas City Chiefs

Injuries and a difficult schedule conspired to cause difficulty for the Kansas City Chiefs in their efforts to follow an 11-5 wild card season. But the Chiefs, despite several key losses, including veteran LB Derrick Johnson and S Eric Berry, remained competitive. Still, the team suffered some troubling losses and, at times, the offense bogged down, as Jamaal Charles would become...

2015 Underrated: Theo Riddick

I've been knocking around the idea in my head that Reggie Bush is worthy of being considered underrated going into the season, but then I get distracted. Usually from porn. And bacon. Ah yes, the story of a single man. Is this story so bad? Porn, bacon, a barren wasteland of loneliness and despair... I guess it's not so bad. And then I think, wait, I was thinking about Reggie Bush...

In Depth 2015: San Diego Chargers

The San Diego Chargers got off to a great start in 2014, but injuries contributed to a slide in the last 10 games. Now there are rumors that long-time QB Philip Rivers may be on the trading block and that the Chargers may be interested in a trade for Marcus Mariota. So is this team a few healthy pieces from being a playoff contender? Or are the Chargers about to hit a semi-rebuilding...

2015 Overrated: C.J. Spiller

One thing's for sure, the hype train has always been strong with this one. And deservedly so. A perpetual description of "incredible athlete on the brink of breaking out" was a yearly norm for C.J. Spiller. So much so, he's been heralded as such for the past 581 years. Alright, so maybe it's just four years, but still, in the NFL, that's an average career span right there. And after...

NFL Mock Draft

View image | I do believe the San Diego Chargers will trade Philip Rivers at the NFL Draft, it's just a question as to which team.  The Tennessee Titans and New York Jets need him the most at the top, but I am not sure the Jets would be willing to deal the necessary pieces, when they might be able to draft Marcus Mariota at 6.   I am also not sure I would...

In Depth 2015: Houston Texans

Injuries and inconsistent play at QB from Matt Schaub led to a 2-14 finish for the Houston Texans in 2013 that meant the end of the Gary Kubiak era and the beginning of the tenure of Bill O’Brien. And O’Brien got things turned around quickly. Improved play from the defense, including a monster season from J.J. Watt, and solid play by QB Ryan Fitzpatrick kept the team more competitive...

In Depth 2015: San Francisco 49ers

With San Francisco coming off three consecutive conference championships and a trip to the Super Bowl two seasons ago, hopes were high heading into 2014. But injuries, infighting and the regression of Colin Kaepernick took the 49ers down a peg. Now, Jim Harbaugh is coaching at the University of Michigan and Jim Tomsula is taking his place. Frank Gore is gone to Indianapolis and LBers...

2015 Way-Too-Early-Rankings, Updated

I figure with the way the offseason has progressed thus far (Chip Kelly rebuilding the Eagles with all the available free agents, plus trading for 80% of all league personnel, including the trainers), well, let's just say some things have changed. True, there are a lot of things that can change from this moment to when training camps start, but we are in the midst of Baseball starting...

In Depth 2015: Miami Dolphins

Miami was 7-5 at the three-quarters point of the 2014 season with at least an outside shot at the postseason. A promising season came to a crashing end, however, when a 1-3 finish dropped the Dolphins to 8-8 for the second consecutive season. It was the sixth straight season on the outside of the playoffs and 10th in 11 years the team has failed to win double-digit games. But the...

In Depth 2015: New Orleans Saints

A season of high expectations fell apart quickly for New Orleans in 2014. The defense gave up 424 points and the Saints lost their last five games at home to finish a deeply disappointing 7-9. Urgency reigned at the beginning of the new league year, as well. Stud tight end Jimmy Graham was sent to Seattle for Max Unger and WR Kenny Stills was sent to Miami – both deals netted picks...

In Depth 2015: Cleveland Browns

It was an up and down year for the Cleveland Browns, who used a mid-season surge to get into playoff contention before sliding to 7-9 in 2014. But for a team on its third head coach in three seasons – one that made two first-round picks, neither of whom produced in their first year – and missing its biggest weapon in Josh Gordon for most of the season, to still produce the team’s...

Mike Zimmer’s first year as head coach of the Vikings got off to a great start, as Minnesota trounced the St. Louis Rams. Then Adrian Peterson’s child abuse situation cost him the rest of his season and things started derailing a bit. Matt Cassel got hurt, thrusting Teddy Bridgewater into the starting lineup before the team really wanted him there. All things considered, an improvement...
