What’s the deal with Blake Bortles?  [LINK]
Someone may have done this before but Blake Bortles always puzzles me. In 2015, he exploded and had a great year and the following year, he became the king of pick 6’s and the garbage time stats. This year he’s pretty average but that’s mainly due to the Jags feeding Fournette. Was... [Read More]

Similar to this year, the 1992 Chargers are the only team in NFL history to start 0-4 and make the playoffs.  [LINK]
As a Jaguars fan I legitimately DO NOT want to see the Chargers in the post season. Give them to Brady, anybody, but they are vastly underrated and seem like they just had a slow start. And history is on their side. They are a team I hope makes the playoffs but I would not want to face because they ... [Read More]

So have the Browns finally been eliminated from playoff contention?  [LINK]

How Did Green Bay Coaches and Managers Know Aaron Rodgers Was Good Enough to Start While Brett Favre Was Still Starting?  [LINK]
It makes sense with Dak and Brady because they backed up the starters during the regular season, but Brett was allowed to walk because Green Bay was confident he was going to be good. But how? Favre was notoriously healthy. What did they see in practice or mop up duty that allowed him to be regarded... [Read More]

They scored a TD in the fourth quarter of their game against the Chargers back on October 8 (it was an OBJ touchdown). Since then, they have played 6 games. In those 6 games, this has been their offensive output in the second half: No touchdown against Denver (2 field goals) No points against Seattl... [Read More]

What one stat can you look at (besides scoring) that can tell you who won a game with reasonable certainty?  [LINK]
For me, it has to be turnover ratio. Not only does a turnover create a non-scoring possession, it gives the other team better field position than a punt would. If turnovers are too skewed in one direction, it’s pretty clear how the game turned out. submitted by /u/PhantomBanker [link] ... [Read More]

Whicker: As Kaepernick sits, NFL deals with trouble standing  [LINK]
Here's what the NFL should have done with Colin Kaepernick. It should have signed him as a league employee. Then it should have sent him in London. Whenever two NFL teams played there, he could have been the backup quarterback for each. Or maybe if a team didn't want to bring its rancid quarterback... [Read More]
