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.

The Niners scored late and recovered…

NFL Week 3: OBJ, Dez, Divisional Outlook

NY Giants The Giants rely far too much on Odell Beckham. The front office hasn’t done a great job of allocating talent on that side of the ball. Creating a wide receiver tandem between OBJ and Brandon Marshall sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it? IT doesn’t help the team much if it came at the expense…

Clarity At the QB Position

Cam Newton Before, during, and since Cam Newton’s MVP season, I refused to buy the hype. I’ve seen Michael Vick and a few others play the same way. I predicted RG3’s departure from the league in 5 years when he was drafted after Andrew Luck. Newton is a hero-ball player and that’s not a compliment.…
