Run Out of Jet Fuel

There are many great franchises throughout the NFL. There are many perennial Superbowl contenders – Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers. All teams (even those just listed) do have their droughts, Patriots pre 2001 and the Steelers’ adventures between 1933 and 1969. However, there are some teams that make up the otherContinue reading “Run Out of Jet Fuel”

Week 3 Roundup

Superbowl Team’s Achilles Heel Currently, I am quite happy with my Superbowl picks (Chiefs and Seahawks). Both are sitting at 3-0, led by superstar QBs and top tier coaches. Both seem to be the class of their divisions and one (Seahawks) is home to the current MVP (Russell Wilson – also my MVP prediction). However,Continue reading “Week 3 Roundup”

What We’ve Learned From Week 1 & 2

The first two weeks are essentially acting as preseason. Teams are trying to integrate all their new, shiny pieces into their team whilst trying to retain an identity. This year we have seen rookies make unexpected, impressive starts as well as unfortunate injuries, a LOT of unfortunate injuries. With that, lets dive into what weContinue reading “What We’ve Learned From Week 1 & 2”

Award Predictions

Offensive Rookie of the Year Joe Burrow QB-Bengals QBs have a stranglehold on almost all awards and this is no different. He is the only rookie QB that will see enough playing time. He has enough pieces around him to make an instant impact. Runner Up: Antonio Gibson RB-Football Team. Defensive Rookie of the YearContinue reading “Award Predictions”

Final Record Predictions For All 32 Teams

These are my final record predictions for the NFL. To do this, I went through and predicted every regular season game. If I were to predict the record through how good I think each team is, then 28/32 teams would finish with a record of between 6-10 and 10-6, however, the NFL doesn’t finish likeContinue reading “Final Record Predictions For All 32 Teams”

All Things RB

One position which has decreased in value over the length of the NFL is that of running back. Whilst teams have proven that a heavy rushing attack can still work in the NFL (49ers, Patriots, Ravens and Saints) but for all 3 of those teams, the individual running back is replaceable after a few seasons,Continue reading “All Things RB”

Hyping the Right Teams (Hopefully)

Hyping the right team is always difficult. A person can be drawn in by flashy moves and forget about the unsexy parts of football that make the difference; see last years Browns for an example. Originally, I had 3 teams that I seemed to have a higher opinion of than others based on potential winContinue reading “Hyping the Right Teams (Hopefully)”

The Latest Extensions and Signings

A flurry of recent contract extensions (and a signing) has swept the NFL. These are likely to be the last big moves before roster cut downs and then the season. Let us dig into each one. George Kittle TE-SF (5 year-$75 million) Kittle did reset the TE market in the NFL albeit not to theContinue reading “The Latest Extensions and Signings”

The Implications of Covid 19 In The NFL

The opt-out deadline has come and gone in the NFL for players. 69 players opted out of the season (according to Fox) and therefore get a season salary of between $150,000 and $350,000. The $350,000 is for high risk players and the $150,000 are for “voluntary opt-outs” and is effectively an advancement on a futureContinue reading “The Implications of Covid 19 In The NFL”
