  2. The All–Bad Contracts Team

    Bill Barnwell

    After covering the league's most valuable contracts earlier this week, it's time to move on and pillory the worst deals in the NFL. Now, while it's easy to do this solely for the sake of ridicule, it's not my goal; I've found...

  4. NFL Trade Value, Part 1

    Bill Barnwell

  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...

    Bill Barnwell

    Although you would be forgiven for forgetting, there were actually brief moments of football that snuck between the blown calls and "bullshit" chants that seemed to dominate this past weekend of NFL action. Some of that football inspired very interes...

  12. The Curious and Dangerous World of Starting Rookie Quarterbacks

    Bill Barnwell

    The Seahawks announced on Tuesday that rookie third-rounder Russell Wilson would start their third preseason game. Wilson's been very impressive against second- and third-string defenses during the preseason, but it's certainly a surprise that he app...

  14. 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...
