Factoid: Norv Turner

The Panthers are handing over their offense to Norv Turner. They fired Mike Shula (which I had no problem with) but I wonder if Turner’s still a capable coordinator? He’s 65, and it’s possible his approach has gotten stale as the game has evolved.   more »

Andy Richardson: Thirty-two thoughts from the 2018 schedule (Part II)

The NFL released its schedule Thursday night. They're trying hard to make it a big thing, which would be easier, I think, if they didn't do it so close to the NFL Draft. In any case, I offered up tidbits on the first 16 teams yesterday, here are brief thoughts on the remaining 16.   more »

Andy Richardson: Thirty-two thoughts from the 2018 schedule (Part I)

The NFL released its schedule with much fanfare last night. We've known who everyone was going to play and where for months, but now we have the when. Not content to throw you out a dozen or so tidbits this year, I shall give you 32 -- one thought on each NFL team's schedule. First 16 teams follow; final 16 tomorrow morning.   more »

Trivia: April 20, 2018

With it being “420 Day”, who are the only five players who in this century have put together 1,000-yard seasons and also have been suspended for entire seasons for violating the league’s substance abuse policy? Looking for three running backs and two wide receivers. The more difficult wide receiver was formerly a top-10 draft pick. One of the running backs ran for over 1,000 yards as an undrafted rookie. Another spent one year on the same college team as Peyton Manning. answer »

Around the NFL: Giants axe Marshall

The Giants have released Brandon Marshall, and the only surprise is that they didn’t make the move sooner. At 34, he seems to be pretty much done at this point (I was surprised when they signed him last year).  more »

Around the NFL: First-round wide receivers

The Cowboys cut Dez Bryant, and now every mock draft is sure they'll draft a wide receiver in the first round. Calvin Ridley, Courtland Sutton (pictured) and D.J. Moore are the popular choices. And maybe they will. But the history indicates that while that player might go on to be the team's future at wide receiver, he's unlikely to put up big numbers in his first season.   more »

Trivia: April 19, 2018

Sam Bradford (assuming he's healthy) likely will start on opening day for Arizona. He's a former No. 1 overall pick, and the Cardinals began last season with Carson Palmer (also a former No. 1 pick). When was the last time this happened -- a team starting back-to-back seasons with different quarterbacks who had been chosen No. 1 overall. As with Arizona, the two quarterbacks were both originally chosen by different teams. answer »

Factoid: Cole Beasley's decline

I didn’t have a problem with the decision to cut Dez Bryant loose. I think he’s lost some speed and effectiveness. But he didn’t cause all of the stink down in Dallas. A lot of other guys on that team have struggled as well.  more »

Around the NFL: T.Y. Hilton

It was a rough year for T.Y. Hilton in 2017. With Andrew Luck on the shelf, Hilton finished with the worst numbers of his career: just 4 TDs, and his lowest number of receptions (57) and yards (966) since his rookie season. He'd gone over 1,000 yards in four straight years previously.   more »

Trivia: April 18, 2018

Who are the only three active running backs who’ve had seasons in with 50-plus catches while averaging 11-plus yards per catch? Two of three guys are pretty easy – franchise players. The third is an obscure back who’s slipped the last two years – he’s never progressed beyond being a change-of-pace and third-down back and isn’t a lock to be on a roster opening day. answer »

Around the NFL: Flacco goes camping

I’m not a big Joe Flacco fan. I have posted a couple of items in the last few months dumping on him – outlining just how bad he’s been over the last two years. But I see that he’s now intending to work with his receivers in the offseason for the first time, and that’s a step in the right direction.   more »

Around the NFL: Ameer Abdullah

There was a story over the weekend that the Lions could shop Ameer Abdullah. My knee jerk reaction was, for what, exactly? Abdullah has been in the league three years now, and he's been nothing but disappointing. A couple of flashes in the preseason, but nowhere to be found when the games start.   more »
