Darrell Henderson is killing it off tackle

Todd Gurley probably had his best game of the season on Sunday and yet the results of the week and the year may only emphasize why the LA Rams had to made the difficult decision to release him in March. The most obvious and pertinent reason to the Rams though was not what Gurley’s been […]

It Doesn’t Matter Anymore Whether You Think Josh Allen Is Good

In the latest mind-boggling development of 2020, Josh Allen is decidedly good at playing quarterback. I know. I know. Walking back takes about the Bills signal-caller being bad is a social media phenomenon that is pretty stunning to witness. But after yet another outstanding performance Sunday, it’s time to face the music. Three weeks into the NFL season, […]

Man overboard! Why defenses are getting killed in man coverage

One of the most egregious and eventually most fireable offenses any coach can make is to roll headlong into a new NFL trend without the personnel to make it work. For the rare Bill Belichicks of the world who change their modus operandi from year to year (heck, from week to week and drive to drive ) […]

Best bets for Week 3 in the NFL include the Washington Football Team

High-profile injuries were the story of Week 2. The San Francisco 49ers lost Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa, Solomon Thomas, Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman to injuries of varying levels of severity. The Carolina Panthers lost running back Christian McCaffery for at least a few weeks. The New York Giants lost their star running back, Saquon […]

The Lions play more man coverage than anybody else. Why are they so bad at it?

Last season, the two teams that played the most man coverage were the Detroit Lions and the New England Patriots. Each team put man concepts on the field on 54% of their defensive snaps, per Sports Info Solutions. Not a surprise in that Lions head coach Matt Patricia used to be Bill Belichick’s defensive coordinator, […]

The 2020 Cowboys can reach the Super Bowl if they stay out of their own way

The Dak Prescott-Jerry Jones contract impasse dominated the offseason Dallas headlines, but it turned out to be irrelevant. Prescott is back (as expected) and well-compensated (as expected) thanks to the franchise tag. And with Mike McCarthy replacing Jason Garrett as head coach, CeeDee Lamb joining an already-loaded receiving corps, and Everson Griffen adding juice to the pass […]

Think Lamar Jackson Can’t Throw? These Week 1 Passing Stats Prove You Wrong

You wouldn’t think this is a controversial statement when examining his stats across the first two seasons (plus one game) of his career. But for some reason, national analysts spent all offseason claiming that Jackson still has a lot to prove when it comes to throwing the ball.  Experts asked if he could throw without the threat […]

Believe it or not, Alvin Kamara’s contract is a win for advanced metrics

If there’s a bigger divide in football today than the one between people heavily involved in the design and use of advanced metrics and people who believe against all available evidence that running backs matter as they did in previous eras, you’d have a hard time finding it. And while the absolute lockdown idea that […]

Von Miller suffers “freak” injury, could return this season

9News’ Mike Klis has confirmed that the Broncos do expect Von Miller to need surgery. He said a source at camp said Miller said something “felt something funny” in his ankle near the end of practice. He was immediately taken for an MRI. Klis said it’s likely the Broncos will lose Miller for an extended period of time. Click here to […]

Why the Bills were wise to make Tre’Davious White the NFL’s richest cornerback

Before the 2017 season, and after five years with the Bills, cornerback Stephon Gilmore signed a five-year, $65 million deal with the Patriots that has turned out to be quite a bargain in retrospect. Gilmore, the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year, is the best cornerback in the business — especially in man coverage, but […]
