2017 NFL Picks: Week 11

Two weeks in a row of decent picks so Im debating if I should keep the shorter format, but figured I would try to do a line on each game instead. Ill try to have picks up for Thanksgiving next week too even though I usually skip the Thursday games. (more…)

Thoughts on Tyrod Taylor’s Benching

In a surprising move the Bills yesterday benched starting QB Tyrod Taylor to get a look at rookie Nathan Peterman, a 5th round draft pick from Pitt. So while Im a little late to the party on this I wanted to share some thoughts anyway on the topic. (more…)

Browns Forget to Turn in Paperwork for a Trade

I wrote last week about the Cleveland Browns and their front offices approach to building the team. At the trade deadline I think this turned from a reasonable debate to a comedy. In what seemed like a desperation play the Browns agreed with division rival Cincinnati on a trade that would bring Bengals backup QB AJ McCarron to Cleveland, presumably to start. The trade package was borderline absurd based on reports- a 2nd and 3rd round draft pick for a guy who has started 3 games and has a 5th round draft pedigree. It got worse from there as the Browns apparently forgot to get the paperwork into the NFL on time to get the trade approved. The Browns went from looking bad to looking like they don’t belong in the NFL. (more…)

49ers Trade for Garoppolo

There have been rumors swirling since last year about Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo and today the rumors finally became reality with the 49ers sending a 2nd round pick to the Patriots in exchange for the young QB. The trade is a pretty big one that will have some far reaching consequences. (more…)

Seahawks Trade for Duane Brown

After years of neglecting the offensive line the Seahawks began a shift this year with a few bigger contracts and today may a really big move by trading for disgruntled Texans left tackle Duane Brown. Brown had held out for a new contract until just this week when he made his return to Houston. What was already a damaged relationship likely got much worse when the Texans owner made some statements in a meeting that insinuated that the players in the NFL were prison inmates. (more…)
