I haven’t done my NFL power ratings in a while but we’re back for week 11. The Bills were on top when I last did the ratings (week 7) and they remain on top. They’re just so highly-ranked in virtually every category. Really the only place you can knock them is in strength of schedule,… Read More NFL Week 11 Power Ratings: Bills Remain On Top
The Tennessee Titans have now won 6 straight games have have a record of 8-2, good for sole possession of first place in the AFC. In their 6-games win streak, they have beaten the Bills, the Chiefs (27-3 I’d add), the Colts, the Rams on the road in blowout fashion, and now the Saints. Much… Read More Ryan Tannehill Deserves a Lot of Credit for the Titans’ Success This Year
The NFL recap, injury report and power ratings will be back this week after a brief hiatus. It was another week of mostly blowout games, unfortunately. And guess what: not a single game went to overtime this week! I know I complained about how the NFL was almost at the point of “rigging” games with… Read More NFL Week 7 Recap: Chiefs Crushed, Bengals Blast Baltimore, Brady Schools Fields; Blowouts Galore Yet Again
I guess this means it’s all-but-official that the Bears, who have played in Soldier Field since 1971, will be getting a new home: Jarrett Payton, for those who don’t know, is the late, great Walter Payton’s son. Payton may be the greatest Bear in franchise history, and Jarrett is very well-connected to the Bears organization… Read More Bears Sign Purchase Agreement for Land for New Stadium
This will probably be my last week doing the record-based tiers given that things will start getting a lot more complicated with more games played starting soon. I know we still have Monday Night Football, but I’m going to publish this now and then update it with the Cowboys and Eagles after the game tonight.… Read More NFL Week 3 Tier List: The RAMS are the Best Team in the League
In my post about the Clay Helton firing, I wrote that USC was foolish for waiting this long to fire Clay Helton when Urban Meyer has been on the market since January of 2019. Obviously the moment he stepped down at Ohio State, he became the #1 head coaching candidate. Now he probably wanted to… Read More Is Urban Meyer Going to Take the USC Job?
The rest of the NFL better get used to this: It’s like they haven’t missed a beat since they were at LSU. Where are all the Ja’Marr Chase haters at now? My man finished with 5 receptions for 101 yards and a TD in his first real game of football since January 2020. 20.9 PPR… Read More WHERE ARE THE JA’MARR CHASE HATERS NOW?
I don’t do mock drafts, because after the top 6-7 picks it’s basically a crapshoot. Nor do I do “draft grades”, and this is because I think the idea is fundamentally stupid. You’re grading teams on their picks before their picks have even taken a snap in so much as an NFL offseason rookie minicamp?… Read More Who Had the Best Draft?
Courtesy of GhettoGronk on Instagram: Jeudy was decent as a rookie. It’s not like he had an Odell Beckham-esque rookie year, but he was solid. Ruggs on the other hand will have to improve a lot to live up to his draft spot. We get caught up in the draft hype, but a lot of… Read More Spending High Draft Picks on Wide Receivers Hasn’t Worked Out Well Lately
He seems confident: He’s putting his reputation on the line saying this. At least his reputation as a football analyst. It has almost become conventional wisdom that the 49ers are going to take Mac Jones. At this point, Mac Jones to the 49ers at #3 feels almost as etched in stone as Lawrence to the… Read More Joe Thomas Says the 49ers Will Draft Justin Fields
