Josh Allen Should Be No. 1 Pick in NFL Draft

It’s September 8, 2018. It had been 31 years since Kentucky last beat Florida in a football game. As seen in recent rivalry matchups, the Cats jumped out to an early lead only for the Gators to come storming back. There was 3:41 left in the game, and Florida would attempt a two-point conversion to make it a 3-point Kentucky lead. Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks rolls out to the right with the tight end lined up on the same side. [...]

Browns Become Most Entertaining Team in NFL with OBJ Trade

The Browns also got Defensive Lineman Olivier Vernon in return (the original Vernon-Zeitler trade was re-worked to make the Odell trade possible). This sent obvious shockwaves through the NFL. On the fun side, this move brings two former [...]

Opinion – The Raiders Might Not Be Stupid After All

An editorial from an Oakland Raiders fan... On the Morning of March 10th, after months of my vintage Raiders gear living in an old cardboard box, I was able to put on my favorite sweatshirt without the fear of pitiful looks from passersby. It wasn’t pride that I was feeling, but the right dose of dignity that allowed me straighten my shoulders while wearing a Raiders logo. It’s no hot-take that just because Gruden brought in Antonio Brown, the Raiders [...]

NFL – The Case Against The Kyler Murray Hype

Being a Heisman Trophy winner and a quarterback has never signaled undoubted success in the NFL. In recent memory, mediocrity has been a high point for most of the recipients and the low points are very low. For every Cam Newton there's a Matt Leinart. Where Kyler Murray fits in to this equation remains to be determined, but the gravity of the situation is undeniable. Kyler Murray’s decision to turn his back on baseball and focus his sole attention on [...]

Patriots A Super Bowl Winner Even Though We All Lost

The history books will not be kind to Super Bowl LIII. Having the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history, with the record-setting moment circulating around a punt, is never a good thing. Sure, the Patriots were the Super Bowl winner, 13-3, but I wonder if it felt as good as the previous five times they hoisted the Lombardi Trophy?  The Patriots faced a well-thought out Rams defense that had a solid plan which emphasized pressure from every angle. For the [...]
