Dallas Cowboys 27, Green Bay Packers 16 Marion Barber is Chuck Norris with dreadlocks. The guy’s a rabid animal. And he’s nearly impossible to stop when his enormous offensive line is this dominant. Everyone was chiding Dallas’s defense. [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , ,

Patriots-Chiefs, Falcons-Lions, Ravens-Bengals, Bills-Seahawks, Saints-Bucs New England Patriots 14, Kansas City Chiefs 10 Alright, to avoid the obvious, let’s do this: second biggest story from this game? How about New England’s defense stifling the Chiefs inside the 10-yard line to end the game. Imagine how demoralizing a last-minute collapse would have been, given the first biggest story. ******* Speaking of….Tom Brady’s ACL is the most significant injury to strike the NFL in my lifetime. Thank goodness it didn’t come during the [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
Rookie running backs have a way of unexpectedly standing out in the preseason. They’re like the unknown friend of a friend who ends up being the life of the party. Half the time, the friend of a friend is intriguing only because he or she is a new face. It’s the same case with running backs. Some have just one enticing attribute––usually speed––that glistens in August around roster long-shots abbreviated playbooks. But some rookie runners show true potential. Here are three surprising running backs who have stood out thus far. [...] Continue reading → | , , ,
QB: Jay Cutler, 3rd yr, Denver Broncos One of the strongest arms in football. RB: Marshawn Lynch, 2nd yr, Buffalo Bills Rushed for over 1,100 yards as a rookie. Improved patience will translate to big things. WR: Vincent Jackson, 4th yr, San Diego Chargers Outstanding size augments his first-class athleticism. Came alive in the playoffs last year. WR: Calvin Johnson, 2nd yr, Detroit Lions Healthy, more mature, playing in a new offense. TE: Vernon Davis, 3rd yr, San Francisco 49ers Even with the Niners’ shaky QB situation, he’ll get plenty of opportunities as one of the focal points in Mike Martz’s offense. LT: D’Brickashaw Ferguson, 3rd yr, New York Jets The [...] Continue reading → | , , ,

The four NFL head coaching changes that have taken place this offseason have conjured up minimal buzz, thanks to the unusual absence of recognizable big-name hires. Tony Sparano to the Dolphins invoked the expected Sopranos jokes --- something America saw coming even weeks before the Cowboys' O-line coach officially entered the market --- as well as additional Bill Parcells chatter (apparently he's pretty good at "turnin' things around.") John Harbaugh's hiring in Baltimore will be a lot more interesting in a few years, after he's proven himself as one of the preeminent head coaches in the league. Mike Smith was hired to take over the Atlanta Falcons, and it's safe to assume that you, like the rest of us, had probably forgotten all about him until now. Then there's Jim Zorn, the [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
