Ten Thoughts on the NFL

The NFL is awesome because the old saying, 'On any given Sunday,' is often true. Each and every week something amazing and unexpected happens and we get to talk about it right here. 1) Pittsburgh Steelers' running back DeAngelo Williams is 32 years old and in his 10th season in the NFL. He has carried the ball over 1,500 times with almost 200 receptions, and last year he labored through an injury plagued season missing 10 games with a bad hammy, a high ankle sprain and a fractured finger. If the Steelers would have gone along with the popular opinion, they never would have offered a player...

DeAngelo Williams is the real luxury item for the Steelers in 2015

Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell is an indispensable offensive weapon that will be missed, as he sits out the rest of the year with a torn MCL. However, veteran running back DeAngelo Williams is a true luxury item and proved it again on Sunday, when he tallied 170 rushing yards, two touchdowns and a two-point conversion in Pittsburgh's 38-35 victory over the Raiders at Heinz Field. When you're on the Internet, you read a lot of weird things from people. One of those weird things was uttered by more than one person last week in the aftermath of the unfortunate season-ending MCL tear...

Between the Hashmarks: Take A Bow Mr. Williams

A lot of post-game focus deservingly goes to Antonio Brown for a record-setting game against the Oakland Raiders, but in week nine of the 2015 NFL regular season, DeAngelo Williams showed why he was a fantastic signing by the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Williams was never intended to be more than Le’Veon Bell’s substitute and then backup, according to traditional thought.  In the NFL, traditional thoughts frequently get tossed right out the window. There was no way to predict Bell would suffer the horrible injury to his knee that occurred in week eight, but football is inherently risky....

Five Good Questions with Behind the Steel Curtain: Replacing Le'Veon Bell a "multiple man" job

For this week's FGQ, I spoke with Jeff Hartman from SB Nation Steelers blog Behind the Steel Cuirtain. 1. There is little question LeVeon Bell is one of, if not the best running back in the NFL right now. Is there a big drop off from him to DeAngelo Williams? There is a big drop off in versatility, but from a production standpoint running the football it doesn't seem there is that much of a drop off. Williams rushed for over 120 yards in Week 1, and 77 yards and 3 touchdowns in Week 2 before giving the starting role back to Bell. Le'Veon Bell is the complete package at the running back...

Week 9 Fantasy Football weekend update: Injuries, cuts, trades and more injuries

Week 9 continued the decimation of top-end RBs. What has happened over the last week with injuries, cuts and trades? What does it all mean? Week 9 was especially rough on teams with injuries. Le’Veon Bell, Keenan Allen, and Steve Smith are all out for the season, and Matt Forte is looking at a long absence too. Let’s look at the injury carnage from Week 8 and what it means. Out for the season... Le’Veon Bell, RB, PIT Many of the savvy owners who drafted DeAngelo Williams to use in the first two weeks, prematurely dropped him after Bell returned from suspension – oops! It’s been...
