FOOTBALL IS BACK BABY! Well almost back. In just over seven weeks, the NFL kicks off its 100th season with a matchup between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. These next seven weeks can’t go by fast enough. However, training camp officially kicks off today for the Denver Broncos with all the other teams to start within the next or so. In the meantime, the Scorecrow family has started a mini-series with a handful of writers giving you their opinions on NFL questions; five at a time. Be sure to follow all of the writers on twitter and ask any questions you may have regarding their answers. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.

Yesterday we had the joy of having my list of top five running backs and on Monday it was the top five quarterbacks being released, which can be found below, that was just the beginning of this scouting frenzy.
The latest rankings to burn a hole in some peoples phones and twitter accounts was my lack of respect in my rankings in Jonathan Taylor and Cam Akers. In my defense, this running back class is so close grade-wise for me that one good or bad game for some guys throws the whole thing into chaos. Continue reading

All summer I have been consuming more football than Joey Chestnut with Hot Dogs on the Fourth of July. My brain has been fried at times but I can honestly say this is going to lead to so much more content for both Coast to Coast Scouting and The Scorecrow and I cannot wait.
However, enough of the sappy stuff from me lets get into the meat and potatoes. Continue reading

2018 was a surprising year for the Indianapolis Colts. With an extremely young defense, and Andrew Luck returning from a nasty shoulder injury, expectations were rather low. However, Luck made an incredible comeback. While they started the season 1-5, they came back to finish 10-6 and earned themselves a wild-card berth in the playoffs. Luck put up some impressive numbers along the way as well. Today, we dove back into the film from his 2018 campaign to see just how well he did. Along with a couple of factors that he can improve on. If he can do that, expect the Colts to once again be in playoff contention, and Luck in consideration for the Most Valuable Player in 2019. Continue reading

Nearly 100,000 people are currently waiting for a kidney transplant. In fact, more people are waiting for a match because of kidney failure than all other organs combined. On Wednesday word is spread all over social media that former NFL defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was in desperate need of a kidney due to the failure of his kidneys. He posted on Instagram that the time had come to ask for help and fans and media alike have been spreading his plea for help on social media platforms far and wide. Another NFL player who has already gone through a kidney transplant is former Bills wide receiver, Donald Jones. Jones has written a book, The Next Quarter, about his experiences before during and after the transplant. Information about obtaining the book is available at DonaldJones.info. It is a great read.

To put it mildly, it has been an underwhelming couple of years for Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson, but in 2019 he is going to remind the NFL that he can still hang with the best of them. Fantasy owners are still salivating over Robinson’s 2015 season, where he dropped 1,400 yards and 14 TDs to finish as the WR6, but he is finally going to pay-off for those who give him one last chance.
