  1. 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...

  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...

  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. South Alabama Breaks Out of the Lab

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  11. Cousin Sal’s Week 5 Prop Bets!

    Cousin Sal Iacono

    Hello, degenerate gamblers, and thank you, Blake Bortles! I just knew you had 0.5 INTs in you last week. In fact you shattered that over/under by throwing two picks in San Diego. I don't have to remind him. He probably knows all of this....

  12. 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 ...

  13. 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 ...

  14. 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...

  16. 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...
