    I look at it this way - every down will see at least 2 corners on the field... as many as half will see 3. Not true of tight ends. I'll take what we got.

    Even if you assume that Ozzie did jump us to get Maxx Williams, one aspect forgotten in all of this is the fact that Baltimore walked into this draft with significant extra ammunition in the form of...

    As distasteful as his persona is, from a talent standpoint, this is a similar scenario to what happened with Warren Sapp back in '96. He was clearly in the...

    For what it's worth, I've been running a couple of mock drafts at Fanspeak's On the Clock simulator. What I keep finding is that there is just silly depth in this draft at corner. They could grab two...

    Sounds like you could be describing Willie Gay. He's 5'10", lists at about 200#, solid cover skills based on smarts rather than over the top skills, and a PFF favorite. Similar player? If so, I'd...

    Totally agreed. Top use a baseball analogy, a pitcher who has a blazing fastball in his 20's will lose some velocity in his 30's. The guys who stick around and have the longest careers are the ones...

    One aspect I would consider in all this is the fact that Noll's record was somewhat compromised by the fact that he was performing not a rebuild, but a ground up build, of a franchise. He was 1 - 13...

    Exactly. Not a game, not a season. A seven year run of statistically impossible turnover prevention, by a franchise that has always flouted the rules. Phil Simms, who has a long career of being a...

    It's a brave new world out there... statistics don't lie. Analysis of the games we watch is reaching another level. The best run organizations in every sport are using these next level stats, and...

    The way it was put, in layman's terms, is that the disparity was significant enough that there would be a less than one in 16,000 chance of it occurring by chance. In other words, statistically...
  12. Statistics that provide an idea of length and impact of Underinflategate?

    Excellent "Moneyball" style statistical analysis that finds the real advantage to the Patriots from underinflated footballs may not have been helping Brady's throws, but in turnover margins. Turns...

    For Bonds, it was an ego thing. Bonds was a surefire HOFer and one of the best players the game had ever seen before the steroids, but his ego just couldn't take the adulation going to the guys...

    This is the M.O. of an Urban Meyer quarterback. He went undefeated with Alex Smith and Tim Tebow. The Chiefs completed how many touchdowns to receivers this year?

    Cardele's physical tools give him the potential to be Cam Newton, except more so. Cam was a guy that Urban Meyer originally recruited to Florida, but lost to a stolen laptop and a JUCO. We know how...

    In all the talk about Bruce as Coach of the Year because of all the injuries he had, especially at quarterback, I wonder if it was considered that his exit from Pittsburgh was largely due to the fact...

    Dante Fowler is a stud, make no mistake. He's an OLB in the mold of LaMarr Woodley with a far superior motor and better attitude. I'll be surprised if he gets to us at 22 because he's versatile...

    Watched FSU's CB's all year, and I'm not a fan either. Beaten way too often for allegedly elite corners. Granted, the D only had 11 sacks all year, but how would this be any different from playing on...

    Defensive talent in the 3 - 4 has become harder to come by in recent years as more teams are playing the system. Guys who used to be available later in the draft (Aaron Smith as a 4, Brett Keisel as...

    It appeared that he locked on to AB and forced the ball into double coverage once he started forward in the pocket. Martavis Bryant was trailing the play along the goal line. Had Ben seen him, it was...

    This. Amen. Bell is an amazing security blanket in the passing game, and a guy who can break down a defense's discipline. How many times have we seen this year a play where a defense gets pressure on...

    San Diego has a tiebreaker on Baltimore, but Baltimore would have to lose for that to be relevant, and a Houston/Cleveland stretch run isn't terribly imposing. The Rats likely finish out 11 - 5. My...
