Making the Leap in 2016

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles It’s time. I’m definitely more of a Bortles fan than most. People are starting to realize the amount of talent Jacksonville has brought in offensively. Entering a third season with Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, another year with Julius Thomas, adding Chris Ivory to the backfield with T.J. Yeldon, and bringing in…

AFC East Pre-Draft Glance

Buffalo Bills Rex Ryan comes into town and Percy Harvin follows him. They did lose Scott Chandler but his blocking impact is easier to replace than say, the Saints trading Jimmy Graham. There’s a new feature back in town, one that could show Fred Jackson the beginning of the end. LeSean McCoy rushed for the…

Buy or Sell: NFC Offseason Rumors

Sell: The Philadelphia Eagles are trying to trade up in the draft to select Marcus Mariota. The quarterback carousel continues for the Eagles since the departure of Donovan McNabb, a future Hall of Famer in my book. Entering the final year of his deal, Nick Foles will try to regain his impressive 2013 form after…

NFC Hash Marks: Offseason Players On the Move?

“Hash Marks” refer to covering every team. NFC EAST DAL: RB DeMarco Murray, OT Doug Free, DE Anthony Spencer, LB Bruce Carter, LB Rolando McClain We all know that Dez Bryant isn’t going anywhere, via long-term extension or the franchise tag. I like Murray’s chances to stay, via the franchise tag, if Bryant agrees to a long-term…

John Fox to the Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears found the right man when they hired Lovie Smith to become a head coach for the first time in his NFL career. Smith worked his way up on the defensive side of the ball, coaching linebackers, defensive backs, and then defensive coordinator for a couple of seasons. In Smith’s nine seasons, the Bears…

Falcons vs Bears

NFL Week 6: Bears at Falcons Should Be A Shootout

Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons I cannot wait to watch these elite receiver tandems put on a show in the A-T-L dome. Sure, the Bears need to use RB Matt Forte more. The same can be said about Falcons RB Antone Smith, who is breaking out in his contract season. Atlanta’s Matt Ryan is lethal…

NFL Standout Receivers Over 30

Receivers 30+  Reggie Wayne, 35: Wayne’s World Returning from knee injury to a team where his understudy, T.Y. Hilton, exploded in the playoffs with a 200-yard performance. Indy tried to force the ground game last season, however their strength clearly comes from Andrew Luck and his targets. Wayne is back, along with tight end Dwayne…

Receivers Passing the Torch

Chicago Bears: Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery Brandon Marshall heads into his 9th season. His history with Jay Cutler, well that rapport has translate form Denver to Chicago in the tune of 100 receptions in 2013. The duo connected for a dozen scores and nearly 1,300 yards. Marshall reached the 100-yard mark six times last season,…

NFL Draft Rumblings (Bears/Bengals/Chiefs)

Matt Forte Chicago Bears may wind up trading running back Matt Forte, they don’t see eye to eye in contract negotiations. Forte has yet to sign his franchise tag tender in hopes for a long-term deal. Cincinnati Bengals have two picks in the first round, #17 and #21. They did sign free agent running back…

Reggie Bush to Miami Dolphins

Man, I am really bummed about this trade. The New Orleans Saints traded running back (RB) Reggie Bush to the Miami Dolphins for a couple draft picks. A lot of people wanted Reggie Bush, I was hoping my Eagles had made this move instead. His hometown Chargers were also a possibility, with RB Darren Sproles…
