A Bunch of Stuff You Might Have Missed Because the Internet is Vast (5-14-13)

Tavon Austin Will Be A Top 20 WR In 2013

826_a1 Let’s get my personal biases out of the way in the very first sentence: I was raised in Pittsburgh, and my Dad went to Pitt. I was taught at a very young age that my teams – so far as college football goes – are Pitt, and the opponents of Notre Dame, Penn State, and West Virginia.

Now, I’m not going to go say I hate those schools – although frankly, there are truly detestable…[Read more]

On a list loaded with quarterbacks, Rodgers is clear No. 1 

via psmyth12 – Familiar faces: Peyton Manning, J.J. Watt, DeMarcus Ware, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. (USATSI) It’s time again for my annual list of the NFL’s Top 100 players. This is something that started out years ago with a Top 50 when few were doing such things. In the years since, there are more and more lists ranking the league’s players. But this list isn’t one that grades the players just on how they played last year,…[Read more]

Chris Ault once said Alex Smith could be ‘an excellent pistol quarterback’ 

via caplannfl – Chris Ault, the former Nevada head coach and creator of the pistol offense hired by the Chiefs as a consultant, once said Alex Smith would be a great fit for the pistol offense. Things just got interesting folks. I was doing some digging around on Chris Ault, the Chiefs new consultant, and came across a gem. Back in January, as the 49ers were making their playoff run with Colin Kaepernick (whom Ault coached at Nevada), a…[Read more]

Worst position groups in the NFL: Offense

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline said Monday morning on “NFL AM” that he was part of the best wide receiver group in the AFC East. This sounds outlandish until the moment you realize it is undeniably true. The other three teams in the division all have poor wide receiver groups. Which got me thinking: What are the worst position groups in the NFL? Since it’s a Monday in May, and my family doesn’t really enjoy my…[Read more]

A detailed look at how the New Orleans Saints scouted safety Kenny Vaccaro

New Orleans Saints college scouting director Rick Reiprish quickly got the feeling that he was looking at a “special kind of player” when he got his first in-depth look at Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro late last September. After seven more months of exhaustive research on Vaccaro and hundreds of other draft prospects, that opinion hasn’t changed. Reiprish’s visit to the University of Texas that day was just like many others that he makes across the country…[Read more]

A Metaphor for Fantasy Draft Strategy

If you grew up around the years I did, sick days home from school were filled with the ageless wonder, Bob Barker, giving away fabulous prizes to the contestant with the closest bid. As I was browsing through the completed mock drafts on fantasyfootballcalculator.com, thinking about how many different strategies of direction (going RB/RB, WR/WR, RB/WR, RB/TE…and so on) there are, my mind drifted to the game of plinko. This was everyone’s favorite game, because…[Read more]

The rise of ‘Generation Jaguar’

The Jacksonville Jaguars fan base has risen, fallen, and now risen again under “Generation Jaguar,” as the kids who were here when the team was created have now grown up. The Jacksonville Jaguars have a fan base that has been battered and bruised through the years. The latest instance revolves around everyone’s favorite third-string quarterback, Tim Tebow, who was released by the New York Jets last month. The Jaguars’ front office made it clear they were…[Read more]
