Around the NFL: Rise from the ashes?

Hold off on those Chase Claypool obits. Sean McDermott is talking as if the former Steeler might be able to salvage his career.   more »

Around the NFL: Broncos backfield

The Denver backfield looks like one of the more complicated ones for fantasy purposes. Sean Payton apparently isn't locking in on any one player as the favorite to be the best running back. And history suggests there could be multiple decent -- but not great -- choices.  more »

Trivia: May 24, 2024

What Heisman winner led his college team to a national title, then won a Super Bowl the next season in the same building? He scored touchdowns in both games. answer »

Around the NFL: Keaton Mitchell

John Harbaugh has confirmed that Keaton Mitchell won’t be ready when the season starts. But the second-year back, knock on wood, should be back at some point during the season.   more »


Around the NFL: Darius Slayton

Story out of Giants camp that veteran wideout Darius Slayton is skipping voluntary workouts. That's fine -- they're voluntary -- but I think he'd be wise to show up. If I were him, I'd be collecting the $8.15 million I'm due this season and being pretty happy about it.   more »


Trivia: May 23, 2024

Six times in NFL history quarterbacks have started at least 150 consecutive games (including the playoffs). Who’s the only quarterback who ended two of those streaks? answer »

Factoid: Kickers

There are a bunch of leagues that have dumped kickers. I’m not in that subset. While it’s a lesser position, I see it as another opportunity to find an edge. Kickers aren’t going anywhere in leagues where I’m the commissioner.   more »


Around the NFL: Kyren Williams

Participating in an experts draft a couple of weeks ago, I was feeling pretty happy about being able to select Rams running back Kyren Williams at 2.10. People seemed to be way more concerned about Blake Corum than I thought they should be. I'm not feeling quite as good today.   more »


Trivia: May 22, 2024

Jim Otto passed away on Sunday. During his career with the Oakland Raiders, he wore the distinctive “00” on his jersey. What other notable NFL player wore that number? answer »

Factoid: Quick receivers

I am a fan of sorts of the shuttle drill. It’s like the 40, only it also involved change of direction. I remember reading in a Julian Edelman book a few years ago that the Patriots are big believers in the shuttle.   more »


Around the NFL: Bryce Young

Top pick Bryce Young was a disaster as a rookie. He struggled all year, with everyone saying he was too small to be a good quarterback (and the fact that the guy drafted one pick later, C.J. Stroud, was the best first-year passer in years didn't help). But I think it's too soon to give up on him.  more »


Trivia: May 21, 2024

Tyreek Hill in Week 1 last year caught 11 passes for 215 yards and 2 TDs in Miami’s win against the Chargers. In the 32-team era, who’s the only other player who’s gone over 200 receiving yards in a Week 1 game? answer »


Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

I shouldn’t admit this, but I don’t get all that excited about the schedule release. I don’t watch it. (We already know all the opponents – the exact order of the games is secondary.) I’ve got other stuff I’m working on at this time of year.   more »


Factoid: Deuce Vaughn

There was a story over the weekend where a Cowboys beat writer speculated that Deuce Vaughn could see an increased role in the offense. The former Kansas State back was a productive runner and receiver in college. But he's pretty small, and there haven't been many running backs his size to hit.   more »


Trivia: May 20, 2024

What are the only two current divisions that have no Super Bowl history together? (That is, none of the four current teams in one of these divisions has ever played in a Super Bowl against any of the four teams in the other division). answer »
