  5. Why Forte rivals Peterson

    KC Joyner

    Matt Forte's jack-of-all-trades skill set has led to the idea that he isn't an elite running back (he has no Pro Bowl or All-Pro nominations in his career), but a closer look at the numbers shows that he can actually go toe-to-toe with the Minnesota ...

    Rich Cimini's recent article about how Darrelle Revis shut down Reggie Wayne offers a perfect illustration for what the best cornerback in the NFL can do when assigned to take an opposing team's best receiving weapon out of the game. With that tho...

  10. Football Scientist: Ryan is right about Revis

    KC Joyner

    Rex Ryan certainly has a knack for hyperbole, but his latest comment stating that Darrelle Revis is "the best player in football" wasn't just big talk. The evidence for this can be found in the improvement in Revis' metrics over the course of the...

    KC Joyner

    One of the main problems with the Jets' passing game this year has been their inability to hit deep-out and comeback passes. According to my game tape breakdowns, Mark Sanchez has attempted to throw to receivers running these routes 31 times this yea...

    KC Joyner

    Fourth-quarter touchdown No. 3 for the Eagles was a lot like touchdown No. 2 -- it was set up by a mistake made by a Giants defender on what otherwise should have been a successful blitz. The Eagles initially got the ball on the drive down 31-24 w...
