  6. NFL: 2010 Chicago Bears may be more lucky than good

    KC Joyner

    K.C. Joyner looks at the 2010 Chicago Bears, who are headed toward an NFC bye. They deserve it, yes -- they've improved since 2009, but much of that improvement, on both sides of the ball, has come as a result of luck.

    KC Joyner

    Last week, KC Joyner wrote of the Detroit Lions' significant improvements. This week, he shines the light on the St. Louis Rams -- Sam Bradford has been a boon for them, but their defense (specifically Ron Bartell) and Danny Amendola (a poor man's Wes Welker to some) have also shown this team is on the verge.

    KC Joyner

    K.C. Joyner takes a look at Jay Cutler, he of the 121.8 passer rating and 2-0 Bears team. Has he finally turned the corner on his gunslinging, error-prone ways? Not quite. He's improved -- but until he faces a legit defense (i.e., the Packers on MNF), his development is a mirage.

  9. NFL: For Andy Reid, starting Michael Vick may prove costly in the...

    KC Joyner

    K.C. Joyner evaluates the Eagles' decision to start Michael Vick -- and is quite confused. Philly's mindset is normally focused on young players (Vick is the 15th-oldest QB in the league) and accurate passers (Vick has a history of INT troubles). Could this move prove costly for Andy Reid?

  10. NFL: New Orleans Saints' defense under Gregg Williams is hardly e...

    KC Joyner

    The Saints' defense looked pretty solid on their run to the Super Bowl last year, shutting down a number of legends -- Brett Favre, Peyton Manning -- in the process. KC Joyner went back and analyzed metrics, though; turns out the Saints' D is rather pedestrian at everything except generating INTs.

    KC Joyner

    KC Joyner uses his good blocking yards per attempt (GBYPA) metric to find both real-life and fantasy value among RBs. Getting the thumbs-up is Correll Buckhalter of the Broncos, while a red flag is waved in front of Cincinnati's Cedric Benson.

    KC Joyner

    The Jacksonville Jaguars finished 2009 at a 3-5 clip in their last eight games; they lost their last four in a row. A big part of that was the statistical decline of Maurice Jones-Drew, who was essentially one of the worst statistical RBs in that period. Jack Del Rio may be misusing his star.

    KC Joyner

    Chris Johnson wants to be the highest-paid RB in the NFL, but KC Joyner writes that if Johnson wants to be one of the best RBs ever, he should be more aware of how well Titans' offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger calls plays for him.

  14. NFL - Darrelle Revis, Vincent Jackson elite, not irreplaceable

    KC Joyner

    Two contract situations hovering over the OTA world right now: Darrelle Revis (Jets) and Vincent Jackson (Chargers). Both players are no doubt elite, as KC Joyner admits, but are they irreplaceable? No. In fact, Dwight Lowery and Malcolm Floyd could do their jobs.
