Continuity and consistency are two of the most valuable traits any professional organization can have, and the NFL is certainly no different.  The Green Bay Packers have exemplified these two words to a tee and then some. (more…)

I’m baaaaaack! It’s been a long time since my last post, but it’s almost Draft day! I’m trying to shift my focus into more analytical work and his piece is in that vein. I have looked into this topic a lot lately and will have more to come soon, but since we’re nearing Thursday night I’ll keep it short and hopefully more relevant to the moment. We’ll be taking a look at athleticism and how to measure and quantify its impact on a prospect’s overall potential at the next level. Hint, its really tough. And if there’s too much text, skip to the pretty pictures! (more…)

In what is likely Peyton Manning's final year, what tricks do the Broncos have up their sleeve?

The sigh of relief from John Elway’s office once Peyton Manning announced he’ll make another go of it can be heard from the Rocky Mountains all the way to the East Coast.

Elway has done a nice job of building a formidable team behind Manning to compete for championships, but that would have all been for not after three Ring-less seasons and an abysmal showing in the divisional round vs Manning’s old stomping grounds Indianapolis.

The Broncos have been active players in the Free Agency market over the last few years, and have built a championship caliber team around Manning.  To understand their offseason this year and beyond, you must understand their 2014 offseason. (more…)


Eyes on the Competition : Buffalo Bills

The hopes and dreams of the Bills rest on their new 40 million dollar man.

Few teams have reshaped their roster this off-season more than the Buffalo Bills.  It all starts at the top, as a new hard-nosed thorn in the Patriots side mentality will be in full swing as Rex Ryan is the new sheriff in Buffalo.

It now seems like forever ago, but Buffalo made one of the earliest moves of the off-season by signing the highly publicized Richie Incognito.  Incognito’s morals can be questioned, but he should help sure up an offensive line that struggled last season.  It seems even more evident today, as the Bills made the first big blockbuster trade of the off-season.  You may have heard about it.

This off-season is an anomaly.  Big time, big name players simply don’t get swapped for one another.  As far as straight up, player for player moves, I think back to the Clinton Portis – Champ Bailey swap in 2004 (feel old yet?) (more…)


Saturday Slate Week 13: Prospects to Watch

Can Brett Hundley save his draft stock with a big time performance agaisnt his cross town rivals?

Can Brett Hundley save his draft stock with a big time performance agaisnt his cross town rivals?

Will the real Brett Hundley please stand up? Week 13 is his show and there’s no bones about it. Yes, #8 Ole Miss vs Arkansas and #20 Missouri vs Tennessee will be crucial in SEC division races. #15 Arizona vs #17 Utah and Oklahoma State vs #7 Baylor will certainly be games worth paying attention too. But there’s no denying that we all will have a much clearer opinion of highly criticized UCLA QB Brett Hundley. (more…)


Saturday Slate: Week 7 College Prospects to Watch.

NCAA Football: Mississippi State at South Carolina

NEPD Staff Writer: CJ Sousa

Wow. WOW. What a weekend in college football. Week 6 saw huge upsets, thrilling conclusions to games, and with Katy Perry getting substantial ESPN TV time, everyone truly went home winners Saturday (Except you, Alabama fans). Week 7 poses some just as important big time match-ups, but first let’s recap quickly.

SEC Battle Royale: It was truly separation Saturday in the SEC. First, Mississippi State took care of Texas A&M, and in convincing fashion. MSU QB Dak Prescott looked like a Heisman contender, and even though Prescott’s counterpart Kenny Hill compiled nice stats, he didn’t play so well. His favorite receiver was MSU LB Richie Brown, who caught 3 interceptions. The prospect everyone is talking about, MSU OLB Benardrick McKinney impressed throughout. Great flow, great anticipation… I’ve officially bought into the Junior ILB/OLB’s hype. In what was one of the ugliest games you’ll ever watch, Florida remains a contender in the SEC East after outlasting Tennessee 10-9. UF DE Dante Fowler Jr. was an animal and dominated the under matched Volunteers’ line. (more…)


Saturday Slate: Week 5 College Football Prospects To Watch

Friday, September 26th, 2014

Party of one, you may be seated Mississippi State. In what is by far the best division in college football (SEC West), Mississippi State finally deserves to sit at the contenders’ table.

The Bulldogs owned week 4 by going into Death Valley and beating #8 LSU and ending their 14 game losing streak against the Tigers. MSU QB Dak Prescott threw for 268 yards and 2 touchdowns, while also beating the Tigers on the ground with 105 yards and 1 touchdown. While that upset was going on, another one was brewing.
