2015 NFL Draft: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Plan On Selecting A Quarterback, Which Other 10 Teams Are Expected To Do So As Well?
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
Quarterback is the most important position in the NFL, and teams are always looking for the next franchise player at that position. The 2015 quarterback draft class is by no means deep but it includes two players that are considered franchise type players — Jameis Winston out of Florida State and Marcus Mariota out of Oregon. There are four other quarterbacks that are projected to be taken in the first five rounds of the draft. Despite the lack of overall depth and quality at the quarterback position, several teams will still take flyers on players who they believe they can develop into starters or top-notch backups. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to take a quarterback with the number one pick overall and Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times believes the Bucs will ultimately go with Winston. “Winston is plug-and-play. He operated in a pro-style offense. He played under center, he checks protections, reads coverage and throws with accuracy and anticipation. On the field, th ...

Crabtree Returns, 49ers Beat Rams
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
San Francisco, CA - Making the playoffs in recent years has been easy for the 49ers. But this year it's different, every game at this point of the season is a must win. San Francisco's 23-13 victory over the St.Louis Rams keeps them in the NFC Wild Card race. "Whatever position we are in for the playoffs, we are just taking it one game at a time," said Michael Crabtree. "Next on the schedule, that's how I take it." Crabtree made his long awaited debut after suffering a torn right Achilles tendon during Organized Team Activity. In his first start of the season, he did not disappoint. A 60-yard pass from Colin Kaepernick in the third quarter, tied his career long reception on 12/26/10 against the Rams. In fact, his return gave the 49ers offense more opportunities and space on the field. And Kaepernick responded well finding his receivers including Vernon Davis who felt the need to apply veridical leaps over two of his opponents. Davis' did a high hurdle over safety Rodney ...

Seahawks Top Rams 14-9: Seattle Holds Off St. Louis On 'Monday Night Football' (VIDEO)
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
ST. LOUIS -- ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks completed a lousy night for St. Louis sports fans. Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes to Golden Tate, and the Seahawks made a dramatic goal-line stand in the final minute to preserve a 14-9 victory over the Rams on Monday night — less than an hour after the Cardinals lost to the Red Sox in the World Series just up the street. The Seahawks (7-1), riding the best start in franchise history, were clinging to the lead when they were forced to punt with just over 5 minutes left in the game. They managed to pin St. Louis at its own 3-yard line, but Kellen Clemens — starting at quarterback in place of the injured Sam Bradford — calmly marched the Rams (3-5) to the Seattle 1 as time wound down. Daryl Richardson was stuffed on third down, and Clemens threw a fade pass incomplete in the corner of the end zone on fourth down as time expired. "The defense did a tremendous job, coming up with a huge stop there," Wilson said. The Seaha ...

Rams reportedly reached out to Brett Favre
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
An NFL team in desperate need of quarterback help contacted Brett Favre this week. And no, it wasn’t the Texans. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the St. Louis Rams called Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, to see if his famous 44-year-old client would be willing to make another comeback. Favre, who wasn’t played since the 2010 season, said in a radio interview this morning that he’s officially retired and has no interest in returning to the league. “It’s flattering, but you know there’s no way I’m going to that,” he said. “I had a great career. I think if anything, the last year that I played was an obvious writing on the walk, vision for you if you will,” Favre said. “It was time.” The Rams are in search of  a signal-caller after starter Sam Bradford suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in Sunday’s loss to Carolina. Bradford will miss the rest of the season. Kellen Clemens was the only other quarterback on the Rams’ roster until the team signed Brady Quinn and Austin Davis on ...

Jeff Fisher Fires Back At Former NFL QB
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
By Aaron Wilson, National Football Post In a rare reaction to critical comments from a broadcaster, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher fired back at former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar. Kosar ripped the Rams' wide receivers and backup quarterback Kellen Clemens while providing color commentary for the Cleveland Browns during a preseason game. "I guess I'm a little disappointed," Fisher said. "I feel bad for them that they had someone doing their broadcast feel the need to speak that way about players, specifically on our team and coaches for that matter. I'm just surprised that Bernie has such a lack of respect for players and this game. "To be honest with you, I lost a lot of respect for him. It's highly unlikely he knew anything about our football team, but felt the need to make those comments. I don't think they were justified." Here are a few Kosar remarks: Following an incomplete throw to rookie Tavon Austin: "I really think that he didn't overthrow him an ...

Historically Bad QB Draft Class?
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
By Jeff Fedotin, National Football Post The 2013 quarterback class has been universally panned as one of the worst of all time. From the team with the No. 1 overall pick: “There is no quarterback where personnel guys can definitely say, ‘He’s a first-round pick,’” Chiefs general manager John Dorsey told The Kansas City Star before the NFL Combine. Dorsey would later trade for Alex Smith, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2005 draft. From the team with the No. 2 overall pick: Jaguars quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo told The Florida-Times Union his quarterback, Blaine Gabbert, a guy who has been a relative bust during his two years in the NFL, would be drafted before any of the current crop. Is the 2013 quarterback draft really that much worse than previous years? One thing’s for sure — no draft will measure up to 1983, the gold standard of quarterback drafts. Six starters were drafted in the first round of that draft, and three of them — John Elway (1st overall) t ...

Chiefs Vs. Rams: The Complete Breakdown
Arrowhead Addict - over 4 years
Nothing soothes the soul quite like breaking down game tape.  And after watching that poor performance on Saturday evening by the Kansas City Chiefs by every string the team put on the field, my soul is in desperate need of soothing. As I’m sure any coach will tell you, the silver linings of butt-kickings come in the form of breaking down game tape, targeting the mistakes, and finding something to improve on. A loss can shake that into a team, so I’m not a believer that the Rams actually found any significant chinks in the Kansas City armor.  They just played a better game, which is allowed to happen. Nevertheless, after rewatching every single play of the game (and I mean every… single… play), I can conclude that the first string did not get beat as badly as we thought they did. The second string, however, did get embarrassed on both sides of the ball.  But the third string provided some face-saving int he final minutes, led by Brady Quinn on offense and Jerrell Powe on defense. ...
