  2. The 2013 NFL Redraft

    Bill Barnwell and Robert Mays

    The 2013 NFL draft was supposed to be a mess. 2012 had Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin. 2014, even a year in advance, held Jadeveon Clowney in what was regarded as one of the deepest draft classes in league history. 2013 was the awkward year in betwee...

    Robert Mays

    The Steelers Offense When Todd Haley was building this offense over the last couple of seasons, in between intense goatee sculpting sessions, I imagine yesterday is what the Steelers had in mind. The best game of Ben Roethlisberger's car...

  4. Week 8 Picks: A Gambling Epiphany

    Bill Simmons

    The last time I wrote a Friday football column -- 35 days ago, if you're keeping score -- Washington fans thought they had upgraded from RG3 to Kirk Cousins, Bills fans were dreaming about EJ Manuel leading them to the Super Bowl, Seattle f...

  5. The Quarterback Contract Question

    Bill Barnwell

    Where does your team quarterback's come from? Most likely, he comes from your team's selection during the NFL draft. Of the league's 32 starters, three were acquired by trade (Carson Palmer, Alex Smith, and Jay Cutler), six were v...

  6. NFL Week 7 Picks: It Can Only Go Up From Here

    Bill Barnwell

    Week 7 can't be worse than Week 6. Well, it would be very difficult to be worse than Week 6. I was victimized by two of the week's three pick-sixes in the final seconds of games that turned a winning side into a loser (while also pushing th...

  7. Ranking the NFL’s Non-Playoff Teams

    Bill Barnwell

    Yesterday, I ran through the league's eight divisional leaders and tried to figure out which of them were most likely to hold on to their spots over the 11 weeks to come. Sorry for jinxing you, Colts and Patriots. Today, I'm going to run t...

  8. NFL Week 6 Picks: Question Everything

    Bill Barnwell

    I have to admit I was tempted to just make this entire Week 6 preview out of J.J. Watt GIFs from Thursday night's Texans-Colts game and call it a column. I know that he's not better at quarterback than Ryan Fitzpatrick, if only because Fitz...

    Bill Barnwell

    Today, amid the Friday NFL picks and predictions, we'll be handing out awards for the first four weeks of the season. Before we do that, let's get to a topic that is quickly becoming a widely held opinion: Thursday Night Football is a mess....

  10. Buffalo Wild Things: Why the Bills Can Win the AFC East

    Robert Mays

    There are two ways of looking at the franchise-altering choice that Bills coach Doug Marrone made earlier this week. The first is the depressing way, the "Oh, those Bills" way. Yanking quarterback EJ Manuel is, undeniably, an admi...

  11. Is This (Finally) the End of the Patriots?

    Bill Barnwell

    I don't think what happened last night is Tom Brady's fault. I'm going to tell you why, and it's going to sound like I'm making excuses, and in the long run, maybe that will end up being the case. It's entirely possible ...

  12. Week 4 Picks and Preview: It’s the Coaching, Stupid

    Bill Barnwell

    You know a good NFL quarterback when you see one, right? Sure, it might take a few hundred passes and a playoff game or two to really get a grip on how good a passer looks, but watch a guy for a few games and you shouldn't find it too difficult ...

  13. The Rise and Fall of the 2012 NFL Draft

    Bill Barnwell

    What happened to the top of the 2012 NFL draft? While the 2011 NFL draft is rapidly going down as arguably the best defensive draft in NFL history, the 2013 class was supposed to be mediocre (and it has been) because so much talent left college footb...

  14. It's Always Dangerous to Believe in the Bills

    Andrew Sharp

    This all started in July. Grantland was having its preseason football meeting, and somewhere in the middle, I blurted out, "What about the Bills this year? Maybe a sleeper team?" I don't know whether I was serious, but it was definitel...

  15. NFL Week 3: Peterson, Picks, and the All-Outrage Mailbag

    Bill Simmons

    Editor's note: We made the mistake of holding this column for one hour because we thought Roger Goodell might actually say something interesting, thoughtful or sincere in today's days-too-late press conference. I left my thoughts on my Twit...

  16. And Now We Praise Not Particularly Famous Punt Blockers

    Jason Bailey

    While the NFL's major on-field talking points have been Robert Griffin's ugly injury, the resurgent Buffalo Bills, and the installation of Darren Sproles 3.0, it's also worth paying attention to one frivolous quirk that...
