NFL picks Week 9: Predicting Chiefs vs. Jets and all other games

Kansas City continues its climb toward the playoffs with a tilt against the feeble Jets at Arrowhead. The Kansas City Chiefs looked done in September. Entering the late stages of October, they appear anything but. After starting 0-2, the Chiefs have reeled off four wins in five games and are playing some of the best football in the NFL. Kansas City is blending excellent defense with a powerful rushing attack and complimentary passing game to dominate opponents, leaving many fans excited. This week, the Chiefs host the New York Jets. As many of you know, I'm a New Yorker and thus, have...

Ricky Williams: Dolphins quarterbacks led to retirement

Former Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams opens up about his sudden retirement in 2004 in an upcoming episode of A Football Life. The Miami Dolphins were coming off a 10-6 record in 2003 and were poised to get back to the playoffs after having missed them the previous two seasons. Miami was in the middle of a span of 11 seasons of winning football in 12 years spanning the end of the Don Shula era, the entire Jimmy Johnson era, and the start of the Dave Wannstedt period. The Dolphins were trending upwards, and it appeared a dominant defense and a power running game would carry them...

Strikes & Gutters: Week 9 Fantasy Football Advice

Failure never tasted so good... Full Disclosure: That was a rough week for my predictions. We learn from our mistakes. I know what I've learned; I am never making any predictions involving the Washington Redskins again. Except this one: they won't make the play-offs. Recapping last week's catastrophe, the Lions decided that Joique Bell can never be trusted to carry the full load, and their #2 RB Theo Riddick gained all the glory. I was right about a Lions RB having a good game, just the wrong one. Tate and McKinnon paid dividends, and Palmer was great against the Eagles. Jarvis Landry...

Sammy Watkins: NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month, October 2014

Sammy Watkins: NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month, October 2014

Sammy Watkins is a very good football player, and he had a heck of a run in October. His strong stretch of play has earned him Offensive Rookie of the Month honors. In four games played during the month of October, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins caught 21 passes for 393 yards and three touchdowns. For his efforts, he has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month. The feat includes back-to-back, 100-yard receiving performances in successive wins over the Minnesota Vikings (17-16, in which Watkins recorded the game-winning touchdown with seconds to spare) and the New York...

Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady Named AFC Offensive Player of the Month

The Patriots quarterback might not have won the weekly award, but he certainly claimed the whole month. The Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month, tying Peyton Manning for the most monthly awards in history, but you know that Brady would trade them all for another victory. Brady won the award for the month of October without having won any of the weekly prizes. Brady posted the 4th best October by a quarterback all time, which is why he probably narrowly edged out Peyton for the title (Peyton posted the 6th best October all time). Here's how the...

Dolphins film study: A look at Ryan Tannehill's interception vs Jaguars

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw an interception just as the team was getting ready to score a touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars. We take a look at the play. Late in the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Miami Dolphins appeared set to extend their 24-6 lead with another touchdown. The Dolphins had the ball on 1st-and-goal from the Jacksonville five-yard line and had been effectively moving the ball against the Jaguars' defense. The Dolphins chose to throw the ball on first down, running three routes off a play action pass. The Jaguars lined up with the...

POLL: Was Miami Dolphins Victory over Jacksonville Jaguars Encouraging or Discouraging?

POLL: Was Miami Dolphins Victory over Jacksonville Jaguars Encouraging or Discouraging?

The Miami Dolphins victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars was one of the most baffling of the season. But was the victory over the inferior Jaguars discouraging or encouraging? The Miami Dolphins beat the one-win Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville last Sunday. It was a confusing game with a confusing result and, naturally, has many confused on how to feel about it. On one hand, the Dolphins won a game that they were supposed to win against an underrated Jaguars team on the road. The team showed resilience in order to pick things up offensively after and abysmal half of football, and the...

How Would You Build the Patriots Defense?

How Would You Build the Patriots Defense?

The Patriots defense has added new faces and lost a few old ones; how should they move forward? The Patriots have lost linebacker Jerod Mayo for the season. Defensive end Chandler Jones is out for an indefinite period of time (hopefully for a couple more weeks, but who knows at this point). Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga should be out for the next few weeks, too. In response, the Patriots have made a considerable number of midseason moves. New England traded for linebackers Akeem Ayers and Jonathan Casillas, and signed defensive lineman Alan Branch. The team had a need to bolster their...

Marcus Mariota Or Jameis Winston: Who's The Better Prospect?

With Geno Smith sinking to new levels of ineptitude in his three 1st quarter interceptions against the Buffalo Bills, the question of the 2015 draft eligible quarterbacks was always likely to come up. So I've decided to post a very early look at two of college's finest QB's and what makes them tick. The word in college football is that both Mariota and Winston will leave Oregon and Florda State respectively and enter the 2015 NFL draft. Let me preface this whole article my stating categorically that there are more QB prospects worth looking at in this draft than just those two. Guys like...
