  1. Week 14 Wrap-up: The Breaking Point

    Bill Barnwell

    It's all over for the San Francisco 49ers. Given their tenuous position in the NFC's playoff picture heading into Sunday, losing to anybody would have been bad. Losing to the crosstown-rival Oakland Raiders was even worse. Losing to them by...

  2. Circling the Calendar: Your Guide to Cherry-Picking the Rest of t...

    Bill Barnwell

    The byes are finally over. Every NFL team has played 11 games, leaving five contests per team to go. That's 80 more NFL games over the next five weeks, likely ending with a Detroit-Green Bay game deciding the NFC North in Week 17. While th...

  3. 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...

  4. The NFL Trading Deadline: Who Is the Next Percy Harvin?

    Bill Barnwell

    One of the disappointing things about covering the NFL as opposed to one of the other major professional sports is the lack of in-season trades. Baseball, basketball, and hockey all have active trade deadlines with months of rumors leading up to a fl...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. Week 5 Picks: Award-Winning Performances

    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....

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...

  11. 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...

  12. NFL Week 3 Wrap: Stand and Deliver

    Bill Barnwell

    Selfishly, I wish that Broncos-Seahawks game had been what we saw in last year's Super Bowl. Can you imagine? Peyton Manning intercepted while driving his team down for a game-winning score, only to launch an improbable 80-yard, no-timeout drive...

  13. Darren Sproles Is the NFL’s Extra Value Meal

    Bill Barnwell

    Through two games, the league's most influential player might very well be an afterthought who was acquired during the offseason for a fifth-round pick. No, Darren Sproles won't actually win league MVP when things are all said and done. He&...

  14. NFL Week 2 Wrap: A Tale of Two Cities

    Bill Barnwell

    Week 2 showed why you shouldn't jump to conclusions after one week of football. Five teams won by 15 points or more in Week 1, and on Sunday, four of them -- the Vikings, Lions, Seahawks, and Titans -- lost their second game by an average of mor...

  15. NFL Season Predictions, Part 1: The Cellar Dwellers

    Bill Barnwell

    The rosters have been pared down to 53 men, and with thousands of words of preamble out of the way, it's time to finish up the 2014 NFL Preview. As always, during this last week of boring before the NFL season finally begins, we break up the lea...

  16. The Sound and Fury of the NFL Preseason

    Bill Barnwell

    The preseason doesn't matter. We run through the same stuff every year, only with different faces. There's the bad team that looks great in meaningless action. The reclamation project at quarterback who looks revitalized and new. The unknow...
