  1. The NFL All-Bargain Team

    Bill Barnwell

    It's not very easy for an NFL team to find a bargain in free agency. The vast majority of players who would be considered bargains on NFL rosters are guys who are still on their rookie deals, players whose salaries are artificially capped by the CBA....

  2. How the Panthers Were Remade

    Bill Barnwell

    When the Panthers produced a disappointing 1-5 start to the season a year ago, Marty Hurney was the guy who paid the price. The Panthers general manager was fired after 11 seasons at the helm, a run that admittedly saw its ups and downs. During Hurne...

  3. The Panthers, Not the Refs, Beat New England

    Bill Barnwell

    The Patriots didn't lose to the Panthers last night because they got jobbed by a bad call on the final play of the game. That's wildly inaccurate. The Patriots lost because they let the game come down to one play from the 18-yard line down four point...

  6. Thank You for Not Coaching, Week 3

    Bill Barnwell

  7. Avoiding Dumb Mistakes at the NFL Draft

    Bill Barnwell

    What do smart NFL teams do in and around draft day that naive, stupid teams don't do? They draft better players, of course, but it's not that simple. They don't "want it more" and will themselves into picking better players. The dregs of the league d...

  8. Checking In on the NFL Numbers Game

    Bill Barnwell

    It's good to check in with the league's most relevant team statistics about once every four weeks. Four weeks isn't enough to dramatically shift things, but it's enough to see some change from (season) quarter to quarter and actually get a macro-leve...

  11. Giants Running in Circles With Their Backfield Spending

    Bill Barnwell

    As an organization, the Giants get a lot of things right. They have a competitive advantage when it comes to identifying and developing pass rushers and build their team around doing so. They're comfortable drafting the likes of Mathias Kiwanuka and ...

  13. Which NFL Teams Got Worse This Offseason?

    Bill Barnwell

    Yesterday, we stopped lamenting the end of the NFL's acquisition season by detailing how 10 teams had sufficiently upgraded their weakest spots in the lineup. Plaudits were handed out, compliments were given, and we even found a nice thing to say abo...
