Factoid: New England defense

I expect New England’s defense will take a big step back this year. Bill Belichick might be one of the best at finding at developing unheralded players, but with these recent opt outs, I think the Patriots have passed the tipping point.   more »


Around the NFL: Antonio Gibson

Now that Derrius Guice has been released and Washington's other running backs are lightly regarded veterans, it seemed time to take a closer look at rookie Antonio Gibson. No one will argue he has the most upside of the team's backs, and he's being drafted earliest -- at 5.12, if you can believe it, in one draft I heard of.   more »

Factoid: Chandler Jones

Look out, Michael Strahan. Arizona's Chandler Jones is coming for your sack record of 22.5. Jones thinks it's within reach. His numbers over the past five seasons make him the best candidate to do it.   more »

Factoid: Ryan Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill is an unusual quarterback – shockingly good last year. But in the drafts I’ve seen, it’s been a buyer’s market for him. If you want to pick him up late as a second quarterback, he’ll be there for you.  more »


Around the NFL: Washington Backfield

Washington released Derrius Guice yesterday. If you just heard the initial report you might have thought it was injury related, with his first two seasons having been basically wiped out, but in fact it was for domestic-related off-field stuff. There's a new starter now.   more »

Ian Allan: COVID-19 opt outs

The COVID opt-out period is over, with 67 players choosing not to participate in the 2020 season. Of those, I see only 11 who are considered significant players, with another 17 whose absence might be felt just a little.   more »


Around the NFL: Preston Williams

I'm a Preston Williams fan. The undrafted wideout was having a big rookie season prior to tearing his ACL last year. He's coming off that serious injury, which is a negative, but he's been cleared for football activities. Will he be ready for Week 1? That's less certain.   more »
