Week two in the NFL was a bad one for injuries, as two star quarterbacks went down with long term injuries. In this article, I will describe their injuries and talk about how it will affect their respective teams.
To say the 2018 season did not end the way the New Orleans Saints wanted is an understatement. Much like 2017, one play seemed to derail the Super Bowl dreams of the Saints. Although they did get a little closer last year, making the NFC Championship, the result was nevertheless disappointing. As a Saints fan, I won’t go into what happened the past two years as it is still a little painful as I’m sure it is for my fellow WhoDats. What I will say is this: They are poised to get that ring and put Drew Brees along with Peyton Manning and John Elway as great quarterbacks going out on top.
The 2019 NFL season is almost here! Well, the preseason at least. The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is just a few days away. The regular season is a little more than five weeks away, but football is back baby! Of course, that means redraft fantasy leagues will be drafting left and right over the next month or so. With that in mind, here are my top 12 quarterbacks for the 2019 season.
Drew Brees has put together a remarkable career. After being drafted by the San Diego (Los Angeles) Chargers in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft, battling a shoulder injury, and making his way to the New Orleans Saints, Brees has done it all. Except for one thing. Winning Most Valuable Player. The Super Bowl Champion, all-pro, pro bowl winning quarterback has filled all of the boxes for the past 13 years for the Saints. Brees has already solidified himself as one of the greats and a future Hall-of-Famer, but could 2019 be the year that he finally brings home the MVP award? I looked into his 2018 film to see just how good he actually is and where he could be next season. Continue reading →
Modern Free Agency as we know it has only been around for 26 years, before Free Agency the NFL’s teams could protect their best players from free agency, basically restricting them from being actually “free”. Then in 1992, the NFLPA sued the NFL for that rule, the suit included four-time Pro Bowler Frank Minnifield, and many other marquee players. The NFLPA won the suit, thus doing away with the “restricted free agency” rule and thus changing the NFL forever. In this article, we will go over the top 5 Modern Free Agents. Thus, players like Johnny Unitas after he was cut from the Steelers and signed to the Baltimore Colts are not included. Continue reading →
We all know how the New Orleans Saints had their season come to an end. Personally, as a Saints fan, I could write a thousand-word article on how they got screwed, but that’s water under the bridge at this point. Let’s take a look at their season and what they need to do to take the next step to the big game in 2019.
The writers at TheScorecrow.com decided to get together and come up with their version of a Top 100 NFL players from the 2018 season. Each writer was invited to submit a ranked list of their top 25 NFL players. The votes were then counted using a weighted average method. This means that a 1st place vote was worth more than a 25th place vote.
Players ranked 1st on a list received 25 points, 2nd = 24 points and so on down to 1 point for a 25th place vote. Each players points were added up and then listed from least to most to generate our list of top 100 players. The top few players were fairly common on all the lists, but after that it was interesting. We hope you enjoy our rankings and would love to read your comments on our list. Special thanks to Beth Sullivan for tabulating the votes and getting this project together.
