Why Andrew Luck Is The Most Untradeable Player In The NFL
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
By Jeff Fedotin, National Football Post He’s six years younger than Aaron Rodgers, as athletic as Cam Newton, much bigger than Russell Wilson and as clutch as they come. If you had to select one player to build your team around at the most important position, you would choose Andrew Luck. “He has the stuff that makes legends,” said Colts linebacker Robert Mathis. Luck is poised to leave his legacy on the game because he has all of the qualities, which would make him the No. 1 selection in this quarterback-driven league if NFL general managers held a draft. (For what it’s worth, Deion Sanders took Luck first in the 2014 Pro Bowl Draft.) Smarts The high school valedictorian earned a 3.48 GPA as an architectural design major at Stanford, but his intelligence transcends book smarts and extends to his mastery of football concepts. Former Colts offensive coordinator/interim coach Bruce Arians — who was on the Colts and Steelers offensive staffs, respectively, when Peyton Manning a ...

My Journey Down NFL Super Bowl Boulevard XLVIII - Part 1 of 6
CNN - about 3 years
You can see my entire set of photos from NFL Super Bowl 48 (XLVIII) Boulevard on my photo blog gallery Here. I had the opportunity to visit New York City’s Times Square for the NFL’s Super Bowl 48 (XLVIII) Boulevard, an amazing event for fans of professional football, sports fans in general, and anyone just looking to have a great time. There are events for both adults and children, most of which are completely free. NFL players have been signing autographs since the event began on Wednesday, January 29th, and will continue to sign through today. I’m on line for Cleveland Browns football great Jim Brown, who went on star in two of my favorite cult classic movies for the 1970s - Take A Hard Ride and Three the Hard Way - both of which he co-starred with martial artists, actors and fellow athletes Jim Kelly and Fred Williamson.

The great QB debate
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
The NFL's quarterback revolution grinds on, each episode more revealing than the last. Russell Wilson stands at the forefront just now after guiding Seattle to that astonishingly comfortable Monday night victory over New Orleans, but this is a four-pronged affair, likely to entertain fans for the next 10 years. Here's how one observer answers the question, ranking the four game-changing quarterbacks in order (no slight to Cam Newton, who debuted in 2011, the season Kaepernick essentially watched from the sideline): Without the injured and highly capable Reggie Wayne, Luck has been targeting wideouts who simply cannot catch the ball - and that, among other issues, will be the club's undoing when it really matters. The Colts' offensive line is young and weary, causing Luck to be sacked a career-high five times in Sunday's 22-14 win over Tennessee. At the onset of his career, Luck was projected as a worthy heir to Johnny Unitas, Bert Jones and Peyton Manning in Colts quarterback lor ...

Dolphins Bullying Investigation Puts GM, Coaching Jobs In Jeopardy
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Last month, Richie Incognito said severe repercussions would be warranted if the Miami Dolphins kept allowing sacks at such an alarming rate. "Everybody should be fired," he said. Nobody in Miami is talking about sacks anymore. Firings remain a distinct possibility for very different reasons. The Dolphins harassment scandal is threatening the season and job security, leaving the future of coach Joe Philbin, his assistants and general manager Jeff Ireland in doubt. Tackle Jonathan Martin alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito, who has been suspended. While Martin is scheduled to meet with an NFL special investigator late this week, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has formed two committees to study the team's locker room culture. "Changes need to be made," Ross said at a news conference Monday. "We need to examine everything internally." Someone in the organization will likely be designated the primary culprit for the scandal, and Ireland' ...

2013 Fantasy Football Trade Deadline: Eli Manning, Matt Forte Poised To Break Loose
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
By Joe Fortenbaugh, National Football Post Trade deadlines are fast approaching and for those of you who don’t rank as one of the top-3 highest scoring teams in your league, a slight roster overhaul may be in order. We recently took a look at the upcoming schedules for all 32 teams in the National Football League with an eye toward fantasy points surrendered at each position. With that information in hand, here are 18 players we’ve targeted as either buy or sell candidates. Any trade questions can be directed to my twitter account @JoeFortenbaugh. SET TO BUST LOOSE Quarterbacks Eli Manning, New York Giants: It’s been a tough year for the two-time Super Bowl winner, to say the least, as Manning currently ranks 31st in the NFL in passer rating (68.4), which is one spot above Brandon Weeden and one below Geno Smith. But the Giants come off the bye riding a two-game winning streak, are still alive in the hunt for the NFC East and have an extremely quarterback-friendly schedule on t ...

NFL Week 9: Nick Foles, Elite Quarterback? And Other Mid-Season Surprises
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The NFL crossed its midpoint with its fair share of drama. A quarterback who is not named Brady, Brees, Manning or Rodgers went full Madden to throw seven touchdowns, while elsewhere one of the league's best teams nearly lost to one of the league's worst. And the only team that remains undefeated won only two games last season (which probably has Mercury Morris and the rest of the '72 Miami Dolphins breathing a tad easier). Here are five of the top story-lines from this week's slate: 1) Luck Unstuck No quarterback has more game-winning drives in his first two seasons during the Super Bowl era than Indianapolis' Andrew Luck. That number is now 10, to be exact. After a brutal first half Sunday night in which he completed just three passes, Luck brought the Colts back to a 27-24 win in Houston by tossing three touchdown passes. And this without the league's leading third-down target, receiver Reggie Wayne, who will miss the rest of the year. Luck recently told HuffPost that he is simp ...

Colts Q&A with Scott Kacsmar + Texans notes
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
This week’s pregame Q&A is with Scott Kacsmar, an assistant editor for Football Outsiders and writes for ESPN Insider. If you enjoy in-depth writing about football, you’ve likely run across his work. He has written at places like Colts Authority, Cold, Hard Football Facts, Bleacher Report and Sports Illustrated. You can find him on Twitter FO_ScottKacsmar. Colts Q&A with Scott Kacsmar What is different/same between this Colts team and previous ones?  Like past Colts teams, this one is led by a great quarterback capable of masking the weaknesses around him. However, the difference would be that Peyton Manning’s teams knew they needed to be better at running the ball and playing defense while this Chuck Pagano/Andrew Luck team really tries to accomplish those feats. The transactions by general manager Ryan Grigson speak to this change. Not as drastic as last year, but the Colts again turned over a significant portion of the roster from 2012 with plenty of free-agent m ...

NFL Week 9 Football Picks
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The NFL Week 9 Picks will put us over the hump on the 2013 football season. So, we have eight more regular season Sundays to win our office pool. One thing I have learned is that the Seattle Seahawks have an alarmingly bad habit of winning, but not covering the spread. I want to be a Russell Wilson fan; I really do. The Seattle QB is a fellow Virginian and short person, not to mention amazingly talented and generally cool. But he's killing me! Week 8 chart-topper: Calvin Johnson's 329-yard receiving game was nothing short of historically great TV. That it was short of Willie Lee "Flipper" Anderson's 1989 336-yard record makes one wonder how incredibly good Anderson must have been to amass that many yards when DB's were actually allowed to defend a pass. Not to mention the fact that it was Jim Everett and not Matthew Stafford under center for the 1989 Rams. No offense meant to Mr. Everett but, you know... Week 8 trivia: Quick, what's the name of the Packers' punter? It's Tim Masthay. ...
