Team projections: Revised team projections

With the regular season now over a quarter complete, we all have a better idea of what offenses are about. (At least we think we do.) Every team has had a chance to play five games, giving people ample opportunity to set aside outlier games affected by playing against strong or weak opposition. We are all now creating firmer opinions about which offenses will finish the season with the most yards and points.  more »

Viva Murillo!: You’re NOT What Your Record Says You Are

Bill Parcells’ famous quote, “You are what your record says you are,” sums up life in the NFL perfectly. Excuses don’t matter, injuries don’t matter. Nothing matters except your record. If you’re 4-1, that’s who you are, no matter how you’ve played. Same with 1-4, or worse. James Robinson might think his 0-5 Jaguars are a “really good team" (yes, he said that) but he’s wrong. No matter how well he plays individually, the Jaguars aren’t a good team. Four of their five losses were by 10 points or more. But that doesn’t even matter. If they were all overtime defeats, they’re 0-5. They are what their record says they are. Just don’t use that philosophy with fantasy football. Because it’s a bit more complicated than that.   more »

It was a crazy morning/afternoon to be watching the Red Zone Channel, with a point in time where four different teams were lining up potential game-winning kicks.

On to the game.   more »
