  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. Week 6 Wrap-up: Heavy Is the Head

    Bill Barnwell

    The one thing you can count on from season to season in the NFL is change. Since the league moved to its eight-division format in 2002, the average season has seen just three division winners retain their titles the following season. Given the strang...

  5. Cousin Sal’s Week 6 Prop Bets!

    Cousin Sal Iacono

    Are you ready for some blowout football? It's here again. The Thursday night game. Or, as this degenerate NFL gambler likes to call it, Thump Day. Each of the four previous Thursday night affairs has been decided by 20-plus points. Seems li...

  6. 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...

  7. The Goodell Blackout

    Bryan Curtis

    For the better part of a month, sportswriters have called for Roger Goodell's resignation. Writing in The MMQB on Monday, Peter King told us that NFL owners aren't likely to deliver it, unless Adolpho Birch pulls a John Dean and spills eve...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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...

    Robert Mays

    It's hard to be a consistently good run defense in the NFL. Take ... wait for it ... the Bears, last season. In 2012, Chicago finished first in run-defense DVOA. Last season, it dropped to 32nd - from best to worst in a single seas...

    Sal Iacono

    I'm going to pretend people are still reading this weekly devastation. So far I'm down 27,500 jermajesties overall betting on this most peculiar of NFL seasons. That is not good. I've done some research and found that so...

    Andrew Sharp

    Trying to predict where things are going in the NFL after two weeks is even harder than it was to start the year. Half the teams in the league have been bipolar through two games. The Patriots, the Redskins, the Niners, everybody. The Colts...

  13. What Does It Take to Get Roger Goodell Fired?

    Andrew Sharp

    I don't know if I believe that the NFL hadn't seen the Ray Rice elevator footage before it was released by TMZ on Monday morning. It's just impossible. The NFL is the most powerful league on earth, with unlimited funds and its own secu...

    Kirk Goldsberry

    Last season, NFL quarterbacks attempted 18,104 passes. They completed just less than 60 percent of them, but that success rate depended on a number of factors, including who was throwing the ball, who was trying to catch it, and where on the field th...
