Trivia: April 19, 2017

What is the only team that currently has three wide receivers who were chosen in the first round? answer »

Factoid: Cleveland Browns

I like the fit of Kenny Britt in Cleveland. Nice signing, I think. He’s an underrated player.   more »

Around the NFL: Panthers Defense

The Carolina Panthers have locked up defensive tackle Kawann Short with a long-term deal, and that's big. The franchise tag would have only kept him around for one more year, and that's assuming he signed it at all. Now one of the league's best defensive linemen isn't going anywhere.   more »

Trivia: April 18, 2017

What is the only team that doesn’t currently have on its roster any tight ends who were selected in the draft (by any team)? answer »

Factoid: New Orleans Saints

At some point the New Orleans offense will need to tail off. They traded away their best playmaker, Brandin Cooks. And Drew Brees is 38; he’s at the point of his career where he could pull a Peyton Manning – not having enough arm strength to function at that same high level.   more »

Around the NFL: Sammy Watkins

Sammy Watkins is entering his fourth season in Buffalo, and it's been an injury-prone career for him thus far. He missed three games in 2015, and eight in 2016. The team is apparently undecided as to whether it will pick up his fifth-year option. Given what he's meant to the offense when healthy, they'd be taking a big risk letting him go.   more »


Trivia: April 17, 2017

Using standard fantasy scoring (6 points for touchdowns, 1 for every 10 yards) what is the only NFL team in the last 20 years that has finished with better rushing numbers than what the Bills produced last year? answer »

Factoid: New Orleans Saints

The Saints surprised me when they signed Ted Ginn Jr. He’s 32, a one-dimensional player, and he drops a lot of balls. But Sean Payton says he thinks Ginn will fit perfectly into their offense.  more »


Around the NFL: Carlos Hyde

There's a new coaching staff in San Francisco, and that's caused some talk about the future of seemingly one of the team's few building blocks, Carlos Hyde. Although the running back has generally played well, he's missed 14 games due to injury in his first three seasons, and may not be an ideal fit for the new offensive scheme.   more »


Trivia: April 16, 2017

Terrelle Pryor last year finished with 1,007 receiving yards for a team that went just 1-15. Who are the only other two active players who’ve gone over 1,000 receiving yards for a team winning fewer than 3 games? These are both wide receivers, and they both played on the same team in the same year. answer »

Factoid: Miami Dolphins

Looking at the Dolphins, I notice that they ran a league-low 913 plays last year – 47 fewer than anyone else. Offenses like the Browns, Rams, Jets and 49ers ran more plays than Miami. Hmm.  more »


Factoid: Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson comes off a national championship, and he put up huge numbers his final two seasons at Clemson. But he also threw 30 interceptions in those years, including 17 in 2016. The kind of thing that might give teams pause when considering him in the first round.   more »


Trivia: April 15, 2017

What division has gone the longest without being won in back-to-back years by the same team? answer »

Factoid: Baltimore Ravens

It will be a committee backfield in Baltimore. They’ve got Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon coming back, and they’ve signed Danny Woodhead. (They got some other guys who could chip in at times as well).  more »


Factoid: Mike Gillislee

The Patriots added Rex Burkhead in free agency. They met with Adrian Peterson, and apparently have an offer to LeGarrette Blount. And they're still not done. They had restricted free agent backs from division rivals Miami and Buffalo in for visits: Damien Williams and Mike Gillislee.   more »
