Teddy Bridgewater to meet with the Jaguars for a second time

Among the Jaguars’ biggest needs heading into the draft is a young quarterback that can grow into the role of franchise passer. The question for the Jags is not if they’ll take a quarterback, but when. There are a number of options for Jacksonville to consider in the first round and even later in the […]


TGS 2013 NFL mock re-draft: Picks 21-32

Because hindsight makes us smartasses, here’s how the 2013 NFL draft should have gone down based on what’s happened the last 12 months. Check out the first 10 picks here and the next 10 here. 21.

Are the San Francisco 49ers in store for a blowup season?

On the surface you could look at all the recent success for the San Francisco 49ers and easily assume they’re well on their way to being perennial contenders for a long time to come. But despite their 36-11-1 record over the last three years which included a Super Bowl trip in 2012 and NFC Championship […]

NFL: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders

What’s next for Terrelle Pryor?

It’s been clear since Matt Schaub was brought on board that the Raiders would be quickly putting an end to the Terrelle Pryor era. According to Pro Football Talk, the Raiders are hoping to be able to trade Pryor before the start of the offseason program that begins next Tuesday. That’s a short timeframe to […]


Chris Johnson can’t carry anyone, let alone the New York Jets

Why would anyone be under the impression that Chris Johnson can save the New York Jets? In the four years since Johnson’s historic 2009 campaign, he’s been been ordinary. He’s averaging just 4.2 yards per attempt, which is pretty much exactly the league average. That’s one spot above Willis McGahee and one below Knowshon Moreno. […]


TGS 2013 NFL mock re-draft: Picks 11-20

Because hindsight makes us smartasses, here’s how the 2013 NFL draft should have gone down based on what’s happened the last 12 months. Check out the first 10 picks here.  11. San Diego Chargers: Tyrann Mathieu (DB, LSU) — D.J. Fluker wasn’t bad, but Mathieu is better and the Chargers badly need help in the defensive […]

Does Johnny Manziel’s Wonderlic score boost his draft stock?

Johnny Manziel may have led his draft class with a 32 out of 50 on the Wonderlic Test, but from a percentage standpoint, that’s not very impressive. Actually completing the test with a high score is, however, much more difficult than it may seem. The Wonderlic Test, in short, is a set of 50 multiple […]


TGS 2013 NFL mock re-draft: Picks 1-10

Because hindsight makes us smartasses, here’s how the 2013 NFL draft should have gone down based on what’s happened the last 12 months. 1. Kansas City Chiefs: Keenan Allen (WR, Cal) — Seriously. Eric Fisher struggled a lot. They could have kept Branden Albert, and Allen looks like he’ll be a star for a long […]


Donald Trump can save the Buffalo Bills

Toronto and Los Angeles might be more lucrative markets than Buffalo, but that’s exactly why Donald Trump might actually represent the Bills’ best chance at staying in western New York indefinitely. Now that the Bills are officially becoming a free agent franchise, many have assumed that the next owner will jump at the chance for […]

Football forever: America hooked on the NFL more than on Mark Cuban’s NBA

“The NFL Draft ratings normally do better on their second and third day than the NBA and NHL playoffs and the bigger baseball matchups of that weekend.  Remember, this is nothing more than NFL teams picking guys from college; no scores, no action, no winners or losers, but it is more popular then NBA, NHL and MLB.  Amazing!”

~ Patrick Schuster, NFL Implosion Not So Fast, Mr. Cuban,

NFL: Washington Redskins at New York Giants

Should the Giants begin looking for Eli Manning’s successor?

At 33 years old, Eli Manning is no young quarterback. He’s been an integral part of the Giants’ roster since he joined the team, and he’ll likely continue to be an integral part of the team for the next half decade or more. Still, he’s at an age where the Giants need to begin considering […]

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars

Jaguars could be the NFL’s most improved team in 2014

The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the least flashy teams in the NFL. Last season, they were never able to put the right pieces together to find success. Last year’s lack of success hasn’t tripped up the Jags so far this offseason. Jacksonville went into free agency with a pile of cash, and they haven’t […]

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Minnesota Vikings

Why Alex Mack would rather play for the Jaguars than the Browns

If reports are accurate, current Browns center Alex Mack will sign an offer sheet from the Jacksonville Jaguars by the end of this week. The Browns will then have five days to match the Jaguars’ offer, or they’ll lose their star center. That’s something Cleveland does intend to do, but that’s not what their center […]


The Saints are starting to lean defense

When you think of the Saints in the Sean Payton era, you think of Drew Brees, an explosive passing offense, points and yards. In fact, while the team won a Super Bowl in 2009 behind it’s high powered offense, it was the 2011 unit that broke the NFL record for the most yards from scrimmage […]
