Around the NFL: DeMarco Murray

DeMarco Murray retired late last week. There was immediately speculation that he'll sign on with some team once a starter gets hurt in the preseason, which I guess is possible. But unlike say Marshawn Lynch, who was under contract with Seattle when he retired a couple of years ago, Murray was a free agent -- no reason to retire if he actually still wants to play football. Good chance, I think, that he's done.   more »

Trivia: July 16, 2018

The Cardinals had a No. 1 overall pick start at quarterback last year (Carson Palmer) and now likely will have another No. 1 overall pick (Sam Bradford) start at least some of their games. What team in this century can top that, with two No. 1 overall pick quarterbacks starting in the same season? answer »

Factoid: Struggling Joe Flacco

The Ravens traded up to select Lamar Jackson in the first round back in April. According to reports he's been getting some work at preseason activities, mixing in with the first-team offense.

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

There are teams with easy schedules and team with hard schedules. But looking at the numbers, I notice there are a large number of teams whose schedules project to be both easy and hard at different points of the season.   more »


Factoid: Mitchell Trubisky, Part 2

I ran an item on Mitchell Trubisky the other day, showing the increase/decrease in passing yards from Year 1 to Year 2 for quarterbacks selected in the top 10. It was a response to a Kyle Long interview that Trubisky is looking more comfortable in his second year. Call this the John Evans revision.   more »

Fantasy News: Jay Gruden profile

For fantasy purposes, I consider Jay Gruden to be the more appealing of the Gruden brothers. I like the way he attacks defenses, and there are no concerns about him being away from the sideline for years.   more »


Around the NFL: Mitchell Trubisky

Gotta love Bears guard Kyle Long, and his colorful description of his second-year quarterback's growth. "My little boy is becoming a man," Long said. "They've taken the training wheels off of Mitch's little bike. " So what can be expected from Mitchell Trubisky in Year 2?  more »

Around the NFL: Go West for Ingram fill-in

Mark Ingram is suspended for the first four games of the season, and some view this as extra reason to draft Alvin Kamara; he might be extra-busy in those games. But the Saints would prefer not to overwork him, so they'll probably give plenty of work to another back. There are lots of candidates.   more »
