Factoid: Goal line passing

I like looking at passing stats at the goal line – inside the 10. That’s a measuring stick area of the field. If you put the ball in the end zone, or you don’t. And as the years go by and the attempts add up, it becomes apparent who’s good and who’s not.   more »

Around the NFL: Kevin White

We're just two weeks away from the NFL Draft, and things are heating up for the top prospects. Most notably, in the fantasy realm anyway, for West Virginia star wide receiver Kevin White.   more »

Factoid: C.J. Anderson

What are we supposed to make of C.J. Anderson? On the one hand, he’s a former undrafted free agent. He made Denver’s roster as an undrafted free agent two years ago and doesn’t have special speed or ability. But he sure was productive in the second half of last year, and he’s their clear No. 1 back heading into training camp.   more »

Ian Allan: Rookie receiver rankings

It’s early. Rankings will change based on where guys are drafted and how they’ll be used. Some of these guys will be asked to be primary-type receivers from the git-go, while others will be brought along slowly in a reserve role, running a limited route tree.   more »


Around the NFL: This Philip Rivers trade talk

Philip Rivers had had a pair of excellent, bounce-back seasons for the Chargers the last two years, and this is a team that went to the playoffs in one of them and just missed out in the season finale in the other. So why would there be all this talk about him being traded?   more »

Ian Allan: Old running backs

If I’m taking a running back in the first half of the first round, I want a guy who’s the right age. Some of these franchise-type guys are getting long in the tooth. Think Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte and Arian Foster.   more »


Factoid: Michael Crabtree / 2009 wide receivers

Michael Crabtree has signed with the Oakland Raiders, so the former first-rounder is now with his second NFL team. It's a story that's been repeated over and over again with what was a sizable 2009 class of wide receivers selected in the first round.   more »


Trivia: April 14, 2015

When Baltimore won its last Super Bowl, its starting receivers were Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. Those players are now starting for San Francisco (the team the Ravens beat). Who is the only other wide receiver in this century who has done this? That is, I'm looking for a guy who started in a Super Bowl, then later started games for the opponent from that Super Bowl. answer »

Factoid: Arian Foster

I’ve got Arian Foster’s body of work in front of me. It’s more impressive than I thought. Before today, I was figuring he’d be just a top-10 running back on my board – somebody who’d go in the first or second round, but not a player I’d particularly want. Upon closer inspection, I think he’s better than that.   more »


Factoid: First-round wide receivers

With the NFL Draft approaching, we've been taking a look over the last few weeks at how recent rookies have panned out in the NFL. First we did running backs from the first, second and third rounds; now we'll take a look at wide receivers. We're examining players drafted since 2000.   more »
