The Solis Report, Pre-Draft Special Part II: An Idiot’s Guide to the 2019 Rookie Class, 1.01-1.12

Man, I feel like one of those guys on “House Surgery” or “House Eye for the House Guy” because I look around RotoViz today and it’s unrecognizable! Have you clicked some of these links? This site is a straight up stunner. They used to say Steve Jobs’ brilliance was in showing you what you didn’t even realize you desperately needed. It almost makes me want to write in a way that is more beautiful, too. My folks tried to instill this idea that a clean room represents a clean brain, and I’d be better at homework and maybe better in…...

The Solis Report: Pre-Draft Special

These days, I’m not sleeping well. Every time I close my eyes a certain number burns bright against the red-black darkness of my inner eyelids. I wake up exhausted and drag myself as if underwater to the bathroom, little more than a spectator in my own life. Beneath the white noise of the shower, a low and sinister whisper: “32 Jokes™.” I shake my head and the thought spills out of my ears and gets lost in the thick pile fleece of the bathroom mat.

The Freedman Report Week 15: Cam Newton Wishes on a Monkey’s Paw

You’re depressed, now. Denny Carter starts making sense. And yet, shimmering in the distance: 32 jokes that never cared whether you won or lost in the first place. An article unburdened by logic, reason, or actionability. Purpose. Hope. Let’s go…....

The Freedman Report Week 6: Lamar Miller Coughs Into His Fist, Odell Beckham Jr. Jumps the Shark, and Other Tales

Man, I can’t believe the Chargers won. It’s been a non-stop celebration since last Thursday. I’m not even sure I remember any of the games except that one. But, as Maggie says, “You don’t even need to watch the games to write this column. Nothing needs to happen at all.” San Diego Chargers If this team was going to win even once more before San Diego votes on a new Charger stadium, you’d want it to be against the Denver Broncos. Denver Broncos This was an ugly, borderline humiliating loss. Everyone, and I mean everyone comes back from a fourth-quarter deficit…...
