Gio’s 2020 NFL Draft “My Guys” Team

Givanni Damico | April 20th, 2020

Welcome to my annual article where I pick my favorite players at each position and people hate on me for having an opinion. These aren’t my highest-graded players at each position, rather guys that I’m very high on. This will not be a full team of 22. I’ll have seven guys on offense and ten on defense. Let’s get into it.

Breaking Down the Jets’ Moves at Wide Receiver and How it Impacts the Draft?

Raul Vazquez | March 25th, 2020 

With this being the first offseason for Joe Douglas as the head man for the Jets, we are continuing to find out what his philosophy is to build a team. He has had a price in mind for free agents and has refused to go above his offer which is refreshing after Mike Maccagnan continued to throw out large contracts. We’ve also seen that Douglas has thrown a bunch of one-year deals to players to maintain cap flexibility and build the core of the franchise through the draft.

Ten XFL Players NFL Teams Should Target

Shade Piper | March 22nd, 2020

As with most sports leagues in the United States, and throughout many leagues across the world for that matter, COVID-19 has ended the inaugural season of the XFL. Because of the early end to the season, XFL players are also able to begin signing with NFL franchises sooner.

Chargers Bolting Up The Free Agency Leaderboard

Sam Schneider | March 22nd, 2020

A few weeks ago, I did a mock draft here on the Los Angeles Chargers based solely on the positional needs of the team. After several days of free agency, the Chargers instead have set themselves up to draft according to best player available due to several team-altering moves made during that time. They released two captains in Brandon Mebane and Thomas Davis, followed by placing the franchise tag on tight end Hunter Henry. Afterward, they found themselves with just over $50 million to spend in free agency before the draft, on their draft picks, and for any additional adds they need to make later this summer. Thus far, general manager Tom Telesco has delivered.

The Rams Cap Mishandling Has Come Full Circle

Mason Thompson   | March 20th, 2020

$94,000,000. That is the dead cap figure for Jared Goff this year if he were to be released. Thursday, Goff was awarded another $43,000,000 in guarantees from the Rams. This is just one of the blunders in a terrible series of mishandlings of multiple contracts. The biggest now is the Todd Gurley deal with his release Thursday afternoon. Let’s take a look at the long line of contracts handed out by General Manager, Les Snead as well as some trades that have drastically altered the Rams projections for years to come.

Las Vegas Raiders Undergoing A Defensive Makeover

Mason Thompson   | March 19th, 2020

Everyone knew that the Raiders would be active in the offseason this year. The third year of the Jon Gruden tenure, as well as the second under Mike Mayock, was a big one. The Raiders had a great draft last year but had a good amount of cap space to spend in free agency. Well, they have. The first few days of free agency have brought in veteran players to help all over the defense. Let’s take a look at each of the signings and what the new additions mean to the team.

Eagles Make Splash for Slay

Alex Kielar  | March 19th, 2020

The Philadelphia Eagles, on Thursday morning, got the help they need at the cornerback by acquiring Darius Slay from the Lions. The Eagles sent a 2020 third-round pick and a fifth-round pick to the Detroit Lions, and agreed to a three-year, $50 million extension with $30 million guaranteed. The extension makes Slay the highest-paid cornerback by annual salary in the league, his $16.7 million per year is two million ahead of Byron Jones. Jones signed with the Miami Dolphins and the Eagles turned to trading for Slay.

The Quarterback Market

Givanni Damico | March 19th, 2020

This free agency period has been… interesting, to say the absolute least. Tom Brady is unofficially a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philip Rivers and his tribe of children are Indianapolis-bound, and Teddy Bridgewater is the new starter in Carolina. So, what teams are still in the quarterback market? Who are the major players still in the market? Let’s get into it.

Denver Broncos are Sneaky Offseason Winners

Zach Gotlieb | March 19th, 2020

For Denver Broncos fans, this has been one of the most anticipated offseasons in recent memory. The sense of hope hasn’t been this high since the signing of Peyton Manning in 2012. With the hopeful quarterback of the future in Drew Lock set to endure his first full season as the starter, this was about building the team around him. This requires a plethora of needs that had to be filled.

Givanni Damico | March 17th, 2020

Overall, this has been a really exciting day for the average football fan. Let’s get into it. Continue reading

DeAndre Hopkins traded to the Cardinals!

Givanni Damico | March 16th, 2020

I was having a nice, calm day in my neighborhood. I’m taking my dog for a walk when my buddy texts me “Hopkins and a fourth to the Cardinals for David Johnson and a second!” My brain would not allow me to believe this was DeAndre Hopkins, so my first thought was actually Trey Hopkins, the Bengals’ center. My initial thoughts were that this was a massive overpay on Arizona’s end for a mediocre offensive lineman. Then I went on Twitter.

The NFL’s New CBA: What It Means and Player Reactions

Givanni Damico | March 16th, 2020

NFL players have approved the new collective bargaining agreement presented by the league. Last time a CBA was proposed, there was a lockout in July of 2011; now the NFL will have labor peace until 2030. Although the agreement was approved, the margin wasn’t very wide. The final vote was 1,019 to 959, or 51.5% to 48.5%. Five hundred players did not vote on the plan, which is extremely significant because their votes probably would have led to this CBA’s rejection. All this being said, a lot of fans probably aren’t quite sure what the agreement entails. I’ll fill you in.  Continue reading

Buffalo Bills 2019 Season Recap

Brandon Braasch | January 17th, 2020

The Buffalo Bills started their 2019 by almost making a trade that would, in theory, help out there passing attack. That trade would have been for Antonio Brown. They dodged a bullet there and saved a couple of draft picks in the process. Instead, they signed free agents John Brown and Cole Beasley. They still, however, need some receivers and I will get into that later. Continue reading

The NFL’s Veteran Quarterbacks and What’s Next for Them

Nickolas Loza | January 16th, 2020

The NFL’s most experienced quarterbacks are getting older, with that being said, the new era quarterbacks get ushered in like Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes, Houston Texans Deshaun Watson, and Baltimore Ravens Lamar Jackson. But we aren’t focused on the young guns today, we’re focused on the grizzled experienced vets who’ve been in the league for a long time, specifically any quarterback who’s older than 35. I’ll go over what the future holds for them and what could happen to them. To be covered they also have to be relevant and have the possibility to play in a big role next season. Continue reading

NFL Free Agency Preview: How it Works

Frank Dyevoich| January 15th, 2020

Now that Super Bowl LIV is only three weeks away, it is time to start looking ahead at the 2020 season. Yes, already. The first major event of the NFL offseason is free agency. The idea of free agency seems pretty simple, unsigned players can sign with new teams for more money. However, free agency is actually very complex, but fear not, that’s what I am here for.

New York Giants 2019 Season Recap

Nick Jehamy| January 12th, 2020

The Giants didn’t come into the 2019 season with playoff expectations. With how the division played out the Giants were statistically still alive through a majority of the season but there was no chance that they were pushing themselves into the playoffs even with the rest of the NFC East’s shakey play this season. The 4-12 had some highlights though. Daniel Jones started a majority of the season and quieted down many of those who questioned the Giants decision in drafting him over Dwayne Haskins last year, Saquon Barkley produced another 1,000+ yard season rushing, and the Giants come out of the season with the number four pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Cleveland Browns 2019 Season Recap

Daniel Corrigan| January 11th, 2020

With the additions of Odell Beckham Jr., Olivier Vernon, and new head coach, Freddie Kitchens, the Browns came into 2019 with high expectations. Well, everything possible went wrong. Bad playcalling, horrendous offensive-line play, and some drama inside the locker-room led to a 6-10 record and a third-place AFC finish.

New York Jets 2019 Season Recap

Josh Livi | January 10th, 2020 

The New York Jets had a pretty monster offseason. Bringing in Le’Veon Bell, C.J. Mosley, and Adam Gase. There were a lot of high hopes for gang green. It was a pretty rough beginning however as the Jets began the season 2-8 in their first 10 games. Jets lost a heart breaker to the winless 0-9 Miami Dolphins team and then lost later in the season to the 0-12 Cincinnati Bengals. Continue reading

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2019 Season Recap

Mike Fanelli | January 9th, 2020 

Entering the 2019 season the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had hopes of making the playoffs. In reality, they were never playoff contenders. The season was highlighted by three things. One, Jameis Winston because the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 30 plus touchdowns and 30 plus interceptions. Ironically, the Buccaneers’ season ended in overtime against the Atlanta Falcons on a pick-six that gave Winston his 30th interception of the season. Two, Chris Godwin‘s breakout season. Despite missing 2.5 games because of a hamstring injury, Godwin finished third in the league with 1,333 receiving yards. The duo of him and Mike Evans might be the best in the league. Three, Shaquil Barrett had a breakout season, leading the league with 19.5 sacks. Entering the season he had 14 career sacks.

Washington Redskins 2019 Season Recap

Mike Fanelli | January 2nd, 2020 

The 2019 season was one filled with frustration by the fans and a billion #FireBruceAllen replies on every tweet from the Redskins’ official twitter page. The team finished 3-13, the second-worst record in the league, only ahead of the Cincinnati Bengals. Jay Gruden was fired after the team started 0-5. The team had unrealistic expectations this season but Gruden needed to go as the team needed a major shakeup. It took until week nine for rookie Dwayne Haskins to take over as the starter at quarterback. He should have been starting the game after Gruden was fired. This season should have been about developing the future, yet it started off with expectations of competing for the playoffs.

John Supowitz| June 5th, 2019

It’s well known that the tight end position is thin. There is some valuable talent, Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Zach Ertz to name a few, but not many others you can depend on.

Although he has had personal issues and injuries when on the field, he is a reliable player at the tight end position and could help your team. Here’s a list of teams Seferian-Jenkins could have fantasy value with.

10 NFL Players Who Could Still Be On the Move This Offseason

Ethan Hewett | May 7th, 2019

With the 2019 NFL Draft now behind us, teams are now beginning to take shape and mold into what we will most likely see for the upcoming 2019-20 season. With the compensatory period coming to an end on May 8, meaning that all free agents signed after that period won’t count against compensatory picks, we could see some movement among players very soon. With several players still left on the free agency market such as Ndamukong Suh or Eric Berry, and along with trade rumors that we could possibly see come to fruition, here are ten players that we could see being picked up by a team or traded in the next month or two.

Houston Texans Season Review: The Future is Bright

Mike Fanelli | March 9th, 2019

The 2017 season was looking so bright as rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson was setting the league on fire. Then a torn ACL in practice ended his season and the Houston Texans went on to win just one of their last nine games, but with a healthy Watson, the 2018 season had high hopes. However, the season started off very ugly. The Texans started the season 0-3 including with loses to the Tennessee Titans and New York Giants. Facing the Indianapolis Colts in week four, the Texans’ season flipped 180 degrees within one snap.

Mike Fanelli | March 2nd, 2019

The 2018 season was like night and day for the Dallas Cowboys. After starting the season 3-4, the Cowboys traded for Oakland Raiders’ wide receiver Amari Cooper and the whole season turned around. With Cooper on the roster, the Cowboys won seven of their last nine games and took home the NFC East title for the second time in three years. After winning their home playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, 24-22, the Cowboys lost to the Los Angeles Rams 30-22 in the divisional round.
