Around the NFL: Antonio Gibson

There's a story out talking about Antonio Gibson. The Commanders running back, it seems, has been impressing at OTAs with his receiving ability. This is not exactly surprising, given that Gibson was a wide receiver in college, but it's something to pay particular attention to given the team's current depth chart and new offensive coordinator.   more »

Trivia: June 1, 2023

It’s looking like the Panthers could have new starters at every offensive skill position. They drafted Bryce Young and Jonathan Mingo, and they signed Miles Sanders, DJ Chark, Adam Thielen and Hayden Hurst. In this vein, in the 32-team era, what are the only two teams that have had five new skill-position players start in over half of their teams’ games? Both of these teams, like Carolina, selected a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. answer »


Ian Allan: 2023 win totals

Poking around with the betting lines and the over-under win totals, I’ve got an early favorite for the 2023 season. Arizona is listed at 5.5 wins, and that one looks awful tempting – the kind of number we should all be getting in on before the general public realizes just how bad the Cardinals are going to be (with the number dropping).   more »


Factoid: First-round wideouts

Minnesota first-rounder Jordan Addison is missing time at offseason training activities due to an undisclosed minor injury. This is not a big deal; it's still May, for a few more hours. But it seems as good a time as any to point out that a rookie impact can't be taken for granted.   more »


Trivia: May 31, 2023

What was the last NFL team to have a 1,000-yard rusher and a receiver with 1,000-plus yards, who both played their college ball at the same school? It happened in 2019. Both players were active in the NFL last year, but with different teams. answer »

Factoid: Chuba Hubbard

I like Chuba Hubbard. I think he’s one of the better insurance-policy running backs available in drafts this year.   more »

Defensive Notes: Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins defense was a disappointment in both NFL terms and in fantasy leagues a year ago. It brought in a new defense coordinator in Vic Fangio, and it also added some news players. Most notably, Jalen Ramsey.   more »


Trivia: May 30, 2023

In each of the last three years, four NFL teams have been led in rushing by running backs who played their college football at Alabama. Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, Najee Harris and Brian Robinson. (And Alabama actually gets up to 5 players in 2021 if Jalen Hurts is included.) What are the only other two schools in the 32-team era who’ve had four different running backs lead teams in rushing in the same year? answer »


Around the NFL: Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo has a foot injury that could jeopardize his ability to be ready in Week 1. He might not even be on the Las Vegas roster. Why was it, again, that the Raiders got rid of Derek Carr?   more »


Factoid: Aaron Rodgers

In general, I'm in on Aaron Rodgers this season. I think the new Jets quarterback will be playing with a chip on his shoulder, which has worked out for other older elite quarterbacks changing teams. And I think he can still play. But I'm not sure he's going to be able to do it for more than one season, and even for 2023, I can't help but wondering how much he has left.   more »


Trivia: May 29, 2023

What player was his team’s Rookie of the Year in 1968, left following that season to serve in Vietnam, and was killed in action on July 21, 1970? answer »

Factoid: Bijan Robinson

The selection of Bijan Robinson with the eighth pick of the draft surprised the heck out of me. Teams don’t like to select running backs that early, and it doesn’t seem like a position of need for the Falcons.   more »


Around the NFL: Giants wide receivers

Looking at the Giants offense, I'm perplexed as to who their top wide receiver will be. They have a lot of different guys who have done stuff in the past, and several guys who they're hoping will do stuff in the future. But hard to be confident any will do it this year.   more »


Trivia: May 28, 2023

What current team changed its name twice in 1971? This team used one name thru the 1970 season, switched to a new name in the offseason, then switched to another name a month later (which is still the franchise’s name). answer »

Factoid: Miami Dolphins

Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are quite a combo. It’s unusually for a team to have two wide receivers putting up those kind of numbers at the same time.   more »
