The Divisional Round Preview

One step closer to the Super Bowl. This weekend we enter the Divisional Round of the playoffs, the veritable ‘quarter finals’ if you’re more used to a European view of tournaments. Four great games to look forward. Will we see some upsets? Maybe. The two No.1 seeds enter the fray this weekend with the Packers […]

Three things the Jets need to do

Ah the Jets. Can’t even lose properly to give themselves the much coveted No.1 pick in the draft. This is an organisation that seems to go out of its way to fail. Every decision they seem to make tends to be the wrong one. They’re what the Browns were for such a long time. Maybe […]

Fast approaching wildcard weekend now! We looked at the AFC schedule a couple of days back and now we’ll look at the matchups in the NFC. The Packers won the right take to the week off and will be watching to see who they’ll be taking on come the Divisional Round next week. Rams (6) […]

Watson & the Texans: What’s next?

Rumours abound yesterday kicked off by Mike Florio on ProFootball Talk that Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was considering asking for a trade. Griff touched on the subject on a post at the end of last week predicting starting quarterbacks in the AFC through 2021 and whilst we all brushed it off as ‘yeah it could […]

The starting QB’s of 2021 in the AFC West

The QB position may be about to face its biggest shake-up around the league in years, as starting veterans retire or move elsewhere, new faces are drafted in and long-serving backups finally achieve the promotion they so desire. Here is my view on the week 1 starting QBs in the AFC West in September 2021 […]

The starting QB’s of 2021 in the AFC South

Three things the Jags need to do

It’s that time of the year where the regular season is coming to an end (or is at an end by the time you read this!) and some teams are heading to the playoffs. For those that aren’t, they look to the horizon where free agency, the draft and a new season is starting to […]

A too early mock draft

I couldn’t resist getting in my own early mock draft. Sure, the order’s going to change over the next few days/weeks but it’s just good fun to start looking forward to draft season, especially if your teams regular season is already over! Just to note, this particular draft isn’t what I think will actually happen, […]

Black Monday predictions 2020

2020 has been a pretty horrendous year for most. But for some NFL head coaches, the start of 2021 won’t exactly buck the trend. The Monday following Week 17’s spate of matches is affectionately known as ‘Black Monday’ where underperforming NFL franchises make the decision as to whether to part ways with their coaching and/or […]

Why winning wasn’t the end of the world for the Jets

The Jets won’t end 2020 with a winless season. They won’t join the 2008 Lions or 2017 Browns with that title and for that I’m glad. It’s all good fun when you’re not a fan of those teams to watch and hope for the rare occurence, but for the fans, players and staff I don’t […]

All I Want for Christmas: NFC edition

This week am turning my attention to the NFC to see which each team would like Santa Claus to bring them! Dallas Cowboys This has been a very disappointing season. The Cowboys started off with so much promise with all their offensive stars and a brand new coach and it’s just been one big let […]

New coaches, new GMs and ageing quarterbacks

There’ll be two teams going into the off season with spots to fill at both GM and coach and quarterbacks who would be considered veteran. Both the Falcons and the Lions have parted ways with front office and head coaches. The Falcons have Matt Ryan (35) installed as long term quarterback, the Lions have Matthew […]

NFL and COVID inconsistencies

Right at the start, I’m going to caveat this piece by saying how generally, the NFL has done a good job in managing COVID and in getting as many games played as there has been with minimum disruptions. But I feel we’re on the precipice of scheduling and punishment chaos. Let’s look at Week 12s […]

Bill O’Brien is not a GM

Bill O’Brien has made a number of questionable trades as his time as GM in Houston. The latest may prove that he’s out of his depth!

The Super Bowl 2020 drinking game

The Super Bowl is this coming weekend, and the media will be keen to tell you that this is the biggest single event in the whole of sports. How true that is I’ll leave up them to prove, but it’s still usually an epic night with friends and family. The NFL always time it perfectly […]
