A Bunch of Stuff You Might Have Missed Because the Internet is Vast (5-9-13)

I’m always looking for ways to aggregate information for my own purposes and have generally settled on twitter lists as a way to stream football content. But it’s also impossible to keep up with how fast the content flows now, so I wrote a little code that dumps the results of tweets into a spreadsheet for me. I figured it might be good to share this information with you all since I’m taking the time to collect it anyway. I’ll try to run this feature once a day.

Asked last month who was ahead at quarterback on the Eagles depth chart, Chip Kelly said the competition was “even” between Michael Vick and Nick Foles. He even threw Dennis Dixon into the mix, and said that the former Oregon quarterback took snaps with the first team during a three-day minicamp. But Jeremy Maclin shed some more light on the battle when he was asked who he thought would ultimately be the Eagles’ starting quarterback. “Right now,…[Read more]

ESPN’s NFL Live threw out an interesting stat this afternoon (and thanks to Jayson Jenks for the heads up), ranking the teams that ran the “read option” the most last season. The read option, recall, is the play where the quarterback gets the snap and then has the option to hand it off or run with it himself (the play Oregon has made so famous at the college level, for instance). Here are the top three: 1, Washington,…[Read more]

We are in that nether region between the NFL Draft and training camps opening, so for now, we get to embrace debate on things like a poll about who is the better quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger or Joe FlaccoFlacco’s hometown paper, the Baltimore Sun, is running that right now. It’s meaningless, and the paper is sure to let you know that the results are not scientific. They are not scientific because these sports polls are rarely representative….[Read more]

Because of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, there are a lot of bridges in this area. A new one opened Thursday. This one doesn’t span water. Instead, it covers the history of an NFL franchise. That’s the picture I got as Ronde Barber posed for photos at the conclusion of his retirement news conference. There was one in particular that struck me. It came with Barber flanked by Greg Schiano and Tony Dungy on one side…[Read more]

An In-Depth Look Inside Ray Horton’s Defense

How Can the Raiders Escape Black Hole of Losing?

via CaptainComeback

This will not be news to the rabid fanbase of the Oakland Raiders: The team has not won in over a decade. The Raiders are just the ninth team since the 1970 merger to go at least 10 seasons without a winning record and without making the playoffs. Just fail to compete, baby? For a team synonymous with black holes, the Raiders have been sucked into a black hole of losing which has produced the darkest era in…[Read more]

Report: Felix Jones Visiting with the Patriots |

via NEPatriotsDraft

NEPD Staff Writer: Tony Santorsa The New England Patriots might have Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden, LeGarrette Blount and Leon Washington to make up their running back corps—but you can always improve. The way that I look at it: You can never have enough running backs. Much like baseball, in which you can never have enough pitchers, I believe that you can never have enough running backs in football. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Wednesday night that…[Read more]
