NFL Week 10 five takeaways

Here are five takeaways from Week 10 of the NFL season. 1. Did you know Brock Osweiler is 6-foot-7?  It’s amazing that it has come to this. The team with the best defense the NFL has seen in many years is now in the hands of Brock Osweiler. The Denver Broncos, at 7-2, are the […]

Week 9 NFL five takeaways

Here are five takeaways from Week 9 of the NFL season. 1. Bad break for the New England Patriots  The Patriots are going to have to pull off what they’ve been able to do in the past — get through a key injury. Journeyman running back Dion Lewis, who is out for the season with […]

NFL Week 8 five takeaways

Here are my five takeaway from Week 8 of the NFL season. 1. The story wasn’t Peyton Manning To an extent I get it — it’s Peyton Manning. But he was a supporting character in the rank of importance with the Denver Broncos win over the Green Bay Packers on “Sunday Night Football.” Anyone who […]

Five takeaways from NFL Week 7

Another NFL week in the books, another five takeaways. 1. This is everything.  No other words need to be written. Thank you very much Kirk Cousins. 2. AFC Worst  I thought the AFC West had the chance to be one of the best divisions in the NFL. In case you haven’t tuned into the first […]

How good are the New York Jets?

With the New York Jets heading into a showdown with the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon it’s a good time to ponder how good is the stepchild of the AFC East? Football Outsiders ranks the Green and White fifth by their DVOA system and put New York with an 80% chance at making the […]

NFL Week 6 five takeaways

After a one week hiatus we’re back with five takeaways. Apologize for missing Week 5. 1. Finally We finally had a Sunday of football that didn’t make me want to remove my eyeballs and throw them into the garbage. The Green Bay Packers-San Diego Chargers game was probably the best one of the season to […]

Not buying the Atlanta Falcons

A cliche used across sports is “you are what your record is.” Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple, especially in the NFL. The Atlanta Falcons are 5-0 and sit alone in first place in the NFC South. Atlanta has beaten the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans and Washington Redskins. The combined record […]

Buffalo Bills take huge hit losing Tyrod Taylor

The Buffalo Bills are off to a solid 3-2 start, but they haven’t reached this point in a way that was expected. It’s been quarterback Tyrod Taylor and Buffalo’s offense that has been the team’s top unit. And now they might be without Taylor for a decent amount of time: Tyrod Taylor could miss multiple games […]

What’s going on with the Eagles and Chip Kelly?

The Philadelphia Eagles are off to a disappointing 1-3 start in a season when expectations were high. I even picked them to win the Super Bowl (whoops). Chip Kelly, the head coach and face of the franchise, has come under fire. Kelly’s vaunted offense is ranked 27th in offensive DVOA by Football Outsiders metric — […]

NFL Week 3 five takeaways

Here five thoughts on Week 3 of the NFL season. 1. Pittsburgh Steelers lose Big Ben The Steelers are once again without their star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.  He is expected to be out four-to-six weeks. During that time Pittsburgh’s schedule looks like this: Week 4 vs. Baltimore Ravens Week 5 at San Diego Chargers Week […]

Is it time to freak out about the Seattle Seahawks?

The numbers are against the Seattle Seahawks.  According to USA Today’s For The Win blog, since the NFL has expanded to a 12-team playoff format in 1990 only 23 of 204 teams with an 0-2 start have made the postseason — that’s 11.2%. Betting against the odds is never smart, but in this case a […]

NFL Week 2 five takeaways

Here are my five takeaways from Week 2 of the NFL season: 1. Rex CRyan  Full disclosure that I’m a Jets fan (THE 2-0 NEW YORK JETS). What Rex Ryan has managed to do is almost impossible in the way I can’t stand him. I’m beyond appreciative of the 2009 and 2010 seasons when he […]

It’s complicated with the Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning is done! Peyton Manning is back! It was a roller coaster of thoughts regarding Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in their stunning 31-24 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium Thursday night. Here’s the truth with the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer — it’s a little bit both. In two games […]

Five takeaways from Week 1 of the NFL season

Week One of the NFL season is in the books.  Here are five takeaways from all of the action. 1. The Washington Redskins picked up right where they left off dropping a winnable game at home to the Miami Dolphins. They’re 5-11 at FedEx Field over the past two seasons. Washington out-gained the Dolphins by […]
