NFL: Thoughts Heading Into Week 6

Emergence of Packers RB Aaron Jones I like his decisiveness and ability to gain positive yards. He doesn’t dance around in the backfield and I think his emergence could allow Ty Montgomery to flourish in a Darren Sproles-like role when he returns. Not only Jones, but the return of Green Bay’s bookendswas huge, tackles David…

Saints Shutout Dolphins in London

London has hosted consecutive games that were dominated by one team. Last week we know what the Jaguars did to the Ravens, which was even more lob-sided, and today the Saints handled the Dolphins. To preface, I like the Dolphins when the were growing with Ryan Tannehill. I a way, without switching teams as much…

9/26/17: 3 QBs, 3 Defenders, 3 Teams

3 Unsung Quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett Last season he plays a couple of games in the absence of Tom Brady’s suspension and Jimmy Garappolo’s injury. Brissett played a game in relief, started the next 2 and went 1-1, which is what he is right now in Indianapolis. Now filling in for Andrew Luck, Brissett likely only…

9/26/17 Field Goal: 3 NFL Notes

Fitzgerald the Great I hope you’ve appreciated the career of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. The future Hall of Famer, in my opinion, continues to make an impact at age 34. In last night’s loss to Dallas, he reeled in 13 of 15 targets for 149 yards and a TD. Fitz really made some spectacular grabs…

NFL Week 2 Fallout

Eagles 61-yard FG Stuns Giants Philadelphia grinded their way to a 14-0 lead after 3 quarters. They held the ball for 40 minutes in this game. Their first touchdown was the result of an 18-play, 90-yard drive where LeGarrette Blount crossed the goal line. For a young team that saw their lead dissolve in the…

Chiefs Handle Patriots in Season Opener

New England got off to a fast start at home. Aside from Rob Gronkowski being blanketed by safety Eric Berry, the Patriots made their opening drive look like a breeze. The beneficiary of goal line work was Mike Gillislee, who punched it in LeGarrette Blount style for the 7-0 lead. First drive of the season…

NFL 8/37/17: Haden to PIT, Receiver News

When it comes to Joe Haden getting released, I think Cleveland did the Pro Bowl veteran a favor. Perhaps they should have made the move earlier in the offseason, but at least the corner joins a playoff roster with Super Bowl aspirations. The Browns could have chosen to pay him and stay the course, which…

NFL QBs in the State of Florida

From 3rd overall hometown pick to fighting for his starting role, Blake Bortles has to earn it this time around. Veteran Chad Henne is competing to be named the Jaguars’ quarterback. From what I know, Tom Coughlin doesn’t give up on talent and he does what he can to help a player get better. Doug…
