  1. Method to the Madness: How Belichick Rules the Draft

    Bill Barnwell

    "Bill Belichick is smart, but sometimes he succeeds just by aiding other teams' efforts to be stupid." I've said that about Belichick a few times now, and while I wasn't aware of his scientific credentials at the time, he&#03...

  2. 2014 NFL Preseason Predictions Revisited

    Bill Barnwell

    With the lull between reviewing the conference championships and previewing the Super Bowl upon us, this is a good time to take a look at the season that's just finished up. I've already noted my preseason bets, and on our podcast on Friday...

    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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Absent From Class: Where Are the NFL’s 2014 Draftees?

    Bill Barnwell

    Most NFL observers say it takes a minimum of three years to judge a draft class. The 2014 draft class is miles away from proving its eventual worth under those standards, but what we can notice after five weeks is that there are all kinds of first-ro...

  11. 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 ...

    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...

  13. Need for Speed

    Bill Barnwell

    Speed kills. Al Davis might have said that about the NFL once, and it's hard to argue against him. Speed's the toughest thing to control and the most difficult skill to plan against as a defense. Think Colin Kaepernick running through the G...

  14. 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...

  16. NFL Trade Value, Part 1

    Bill Barnwell

    The 2013 NFL season reminded us that efficiency kills. On the field, despite an arm that would have been laughed out of the combine, Peyton Manning and a near-unstoppable Broncos offense set virtually every passing record by marching their way down t...
