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

NFL DFS – Championship Sunday

Joey Ricotta  January 19th, 2019

Championship Sunday. In my honest opinion, the best football day of the year. The Super Bowl is the most anticipated and obviously my favorite game of the year, but the fact that we get to enjoy the early part of the day, maybe even sleep in a little, and then get to watch two fantastic football games, that takes the cake for me.

Seahawks vs Eagles NFC Wildcard Preview

Pranav Ramasubramanian| January 5th, 2020 

The Philadelphia Eagles did it again winning four straight games when it mattered most to get themselves into the playoffs for the third straight year, while the Seattle Seahawks rode Russell Wilson and their running backs to an 11-5 record. Carson Wentz has been banged up the last two years with multiple injuries enabling Nick Foles to start in the last two years of the playoffs, but now Wentz is healthy and has a chance to prove himself on the big stage for the first time in his career. The Seahawks had a chance to win their division and set up a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, but failure to do so resulted in the five seed. The Seahawks and Eagles played each other once in the regular season resulting in a 17-9 victory. Rashaad Penny was the star of the game with 129 yards off of 14 carries with a touchdown.

NFL Playoffs: The Impact of the First Round Bye

Nickolas Loza | January 3rd, 2020 

The playoffs are a brutal time, your roster can be plagued by injuries, the players are tired, and the coaches are wary after five long months of football. A playoff bye does wonders for teams, first of all, it gives the team time to recuperate after at the very least seven straight weeks of football. It gives time for injured players to come back and it gives time to prepare and have a home playoff game in the divisional round. Most of all, it gives the players time to study film about the potential team they’ll be facing. Let’stake a look at the four teams who got a bye and why it is critical for them.

Pranav Ramasubramanian | January 30th, 2019

The championship games were great entertainment and proved to be some great fun for football fans as it is some of the last meaningful games until September. Even though the deserving teams seemed to have won what looms large is the calls that more or less decided the wins. The NFC Championship game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints was called by Bill Vinovich and his staff while the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs was called by Clete Blakeman and his staff. Let’s examine some of the crucial missed calls.

Saints vs Eagles NFC Divisional Round Preview

Dale Money | January 13th, 2019

When these two teams last faced off in New Orleans in week 11, the Philadelphia Eagles played their worst game in recent memory, getting run out of the Superdome, 48-7. We should expect the Eagles to be able to do a much better job at scoring with the New Orleans Saints this time. The Saints had a much different road to the playoffs, finishing up the regular season 13-3 and grabbing the number one seed. Philadelphia, on the other hand, had to dig themselves out of a 4-6 hole, winning five of the last six and beating the Bears in the wild-card round.

Colts vs Chiefs AFC Divisional Round Preview

John Wagner | January 12th, 2019

The NFL season is winding down and that means one thing. It’s playoff season and the AFC runs through Arrowhead, an idea that might make Chiefs fans nervous but what might make them more nervous is seeing Andrew Luck on the other sideline. I was in Indianapolis the day Andrew Luck led a massive 28-point comeback against the Chiefs whose offense and defense as a whole broke down and allowed the Colts to take advantage and lead Indy to one of the many Chiefs heartbreaks.

Colts vs Texans AFC Wildcard Preview

Dale Money | January 5th, 2019

The first game of the NFL Playoffs has the potential to be one of the best wildcard matchups this weekend. The Indianapolis Colts were only the third team in NFL history to work themselves back from a 1-5 hole and win a playoff spot. As remarkable as that feat is. You have the Houston Texans, who were the first team to survive a 0-3 start and punch their ticket.
