Arizona Cardinals: Right move to sit stars

The Arizona Cardinals announced a couple of their top skill players will not play in the Hall of Fame Game On the first day of training camp practice at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, the Arizona Cardinals made a not so shocking announcement.  Quarterback Carson Palmer and receiver Larry Fitzgerald will sit out the […] Arizona Cardinals: Right move to sit stars - Raising Zona - Raising Zona - An Arizona Cardinals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Sheldon Richardson would fit nicely with Arizona Cardinals

The defensive lineman from the Big Apple would be an excellent addition to the Arizona Cardinals’ contingent of defenders At the moment, Arizona Cardinals’ general manager Steve Keim appears to be satisfied with what the club’s defensive line has to offer. It’s an area of the squad that hasn’t really been addressed (aside from the […] Sheldon Richardson would fit nicely with Arizona Cardinals - Raising Zona - Raising Zona - An Arizona Cardinals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

For Washington Redskins coaching staff, energy is the new ordinary

There’s a new norm in Ashburn. It isn’t an aura of dysfunction, or a wave of hope. It’s simply a mentality. The Washington Redskins will be an energetic bunch in 2017, win or lose. There’s no correlation between excitement and success. Bill Belichick is more than enough proof of that. But when a team starved […] For Washington Redskins coaching staff, energy is the new ordinary - Riggos Rag - Riggos Rag - A Washington Redskins Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

If you could change the outcome of one 49ers game, what would it be?

If you could change the outcome of one 49ers game, what would it be?

The Super Bowl is the big choice, but there are plenty others. The quiet of the offseason requires a little creativity amidst all the positional reviews and roster projections. Our friends at Pride of Detroit came across this great question. You can change the outcome of one sporting event during your lifetime. Which one would you choose and why?— Michael Dunlap (@DunlapSports) July 19, 2017 We can easily focus this one on the 49ers. Some will see a very clear answer, but I would argue there are a few interesting options to consider. The easy answer for a lot of people would be Super...

The Arizona Cardinals have placed C Lucas Crowley on waivers Saturday and signed rookie LB Tevin Floyd to a contract, according to Darren Urban.

49ers roster breakdowns, 90-in-90: Kapri Bibbs

49ers roster breakdowns, 90-in-90: Kapri Bibbs

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today we move on to running back Kapri Bibbs. Each year, we run a series of post called "90-in-90" here at Niners Nation. The idea is that we'll take a look at every single player on the roster, from the very bottom to the top and break them down a few different ways. This is to help give everyone a basic understanding of a roster. Of course, this roster will change, and some days we'll have more than one so it's not strictly one per day but you get the idea. Kapri Bibbs was part of a puzzling but...

Philly writer says Jerry Jones should thank Eagles’ fans for putting him in NFL Hall of Fame

Philly writer says Jerry Jones should thank Eagles’ fans for putting him in NFL Hall of Fame

Well, this is a new one, Philly writer believes that Jerry Jones should thank Eagles fans for his Hall of Fame bid? Mike Sielski of the Philadelphia Inquirer opined that Jerry Jones should thank the rabid, unrivaled, Eagles fans for him becoming the 307th member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame: “If it seemed strange and premature for Jones to be inducted into the Hall —he isn’t going anywhere, and the Cowboys have reached the playoffs just nine times since last winning the Super Bowl 21 years ago — his inclusion in this year’s class was now perfectly understandable. The disdain,...

Weekend discussion: Which NFL head coaches are on the hot seat?

Weekend discussion: Which NFL head coaches are on the hot seat?

This is the last weekend before Seahawks training camp starts, and the third-to-last weekend before Seattle’s first preseason game. If you’re like me, you’re hoping time can speed itself up. With opening night between New England and Kansas City less than 50 days away, I figured we could take a look at which head coaches around the NFL are facing the dreaded pink slip this season. As Seahawks fans, we can sit back and relax knowing that Pete Carroll won’t be at risk of getting fired any time soon. Going to two Super Bowls, winning one of them, and having five consecutive ten-win...

49ers and Seahawks working as a team in Oahu...wait, what?

49ers and Seahawks working as a team in Oahu...wait, what?

Buckner, Armstead, Harold and Blair all worked out in Hawaii with several members of their rivals defense - part three of our exclusive look into the offseason One of the grittiest rivalries in the NFL has waned a bit since it hit it’s peak, when the NFC was run by the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. Back when Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh’s disdain for each other was a headline, you couldn’t imagine the teams working out together at all, even in small groups. That clearly is not the case as several members of each team gathered together in Oahu at Hawaii Optimum...

2017 NFL preview: Will Teddy Bridgewater play in the preseason?

We’re previewing the NFL heading into training camp, moving on to the 49ers four preseason opponents. Today, we look at the Minnesota Vikings. The San Francisco 49ers are wrapping up their offseason, with training camp set to get going on Thursday, July 27. With the help of SB Nation’s other NFL sites, we have been previewing training camp for the 49ers 13 regular season opponents. You can view all of them here. Since we still have some time before the preseason gets going, I thought it would be fun to keep going and look at the other 19 NFL teams. The 49ers will play four of them in...

Panthers 2017 Schedule Preview: Weeks 8 and 16 vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We continue our schedule preview by taking a closer look at an NFC South foe: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Like every other division opponent, the Panthers square off with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers twice in the 2017 season: in Week 8 when the Panthers travel to Tampa, and in Week 16 when the Buccaneers pay a visit to Charlotte. The Week 8 matchup will be tough for Carolina since it will be their second straight road game (they face Chicago in Week 7). When considering the fatigue that will result from traveling two weeks straight and the fact that division games are always more difficult by...

Jameis Winston’s third season could look a lot like Andrew Luck’s

Jameis Winston’s third season could look a lot like Andrew Luck’s

Luck got to the conference championship game that season. Comparing Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota used to be the hot thing to do, but for some reason I haven’t seen that many direct comparisons the past year. Mike Tanier of Bleacher Report thought it was a good idea to frame his analysis that way, pitting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback against the Tennessee Titans’ signal caller. The final conclusion is that Mariota is likely to do better this year, with less production than Jameis Winston overall. But Tanier refuses to make any statements on who is actually the better...

Could Brian Hoyer ever be more than a stopgap for the 49ers?

Could Brian Hoyer ever be more than a stopgap for the 49ers?

Hoyer is the guy until he’s not the guy. How long will that be, exactly? Brian Hoyer is the starter going into the 2017-18 season for the San Francisco 49ers, but is there actually any reason to believe he will have a job past then? Hoyer, a journeymen who had his best season under Kyle Shanahan with the Cleveland Browns, has had multiple opportunities to start around the league and has only shown flashes of high-level play. Mostly, he’s struggled for consistency and has been an average to below-average starter at best. He fits the bill of a stopgap solution, and that’s what everyone...

Ravens recharged secondary & pass-rush, but offense needs to improve in 2017

The Packers’ week 11 opponents spent more resources on improving an already-solid defense than a below-average offense this spring.

NFC West preview: A closer look at the Rams recent draft picks

On Friday, I wrote a quick eval of each NFC West team’s draft hauls from 2014-2016, with the promise that I’d get more information on each of those relevant picks. So begins that three-part series. For the LA Rams, I sent over a list of names to Joe McAtee of Turf Show Times and he was kind enough to send back some quick thoughts on each of them. Hopefully this gives Seahawks fans a better idea of who to watch for — and maybe who not to — when the Rams undoubtedly frustrate the hell out of Seattle next season. These are just the players that StLA drafted from 2014 to 2016, and only...

49ers will find out Eric Reid’s value in 2017

49ers will find out Eric Reid’s value in 2017

Eric Reid has flirted with elite-level play, but he’s never quite made it over that hump. Will that differ with a position change in a contract year? Eric Reid has, thus far, been a solid draft pick for the San Francisco 49ers. He was not the safety that most 49ers wanted out of that draft, but his hard-nosed play and aggressive style immediately endeared him to a fanbase well-conditioned for that sort of thing in recent years. When concussions and other issues caused him to be somewhat less aggressive, that also vilified him for some of the fanbase. Reid isn’t the same player when...

Giants 90-Man Roster: QB Davis Webb

Giants 90-Man Roster: QB Davis Webb

Rookie likely headed for redshirt season Can third-round pick Davis Webb be the heir apparent to Eli Manning as franchise quarterback of the New York Giants? Maybe, but that is probably still a few seasons down the road — if it happens at all. What can the Giants get from the rookie now? Let’s take a closer look as we continue our player-by-player profiles of the team’s 90-man roster. 2016 Season In Review Webb succeeded 2016 first overall pick Jared Goff as quarterback at Cal, and put up big numbers. He completed 382-of-620 passes (61.6 percent) for 4.295 yards, 37 touchdowns and 12...
