Power Ranking All the NFL Head Coaches For 2016

Mike Mularkey Talk about an uninspired coaching hire. Mularkey was the Buffalo Bills head coach for two seasons, compiling a 14-18 record before he resigned from the team.

Predicting the 2016 NFL Rookies of the Year

Offensive Rookie of the Year: The Frontrunner: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys This is an easy pick. The best running back prospect in the last few years drafted to the team with the NFL's best offensive line. If Elliott doesn't win the OROY award, it will be a disappointment. Now that Darren McFadden's injury woes have resurfaced, look for Elliott to tote...

Do the Jets need to bring back Ryan Fitzpatrick?

With all of the uncertainty around the New York Jets re-signing Ryan Fitzpatrick, I pose the question, do the Jets need Fitzpatrick to be as good or better than last season?  I do not believe that they need Fitzpatrick to be competitive in the AFC this upcoming season.  The kind of year Ryan Fitzpatrick had last year is very...

The Golden Age of Running Backs Is Now…but Nobody Cares

Stop me if you've heard this one before: the running back position is being devalued in the NFL. It's a common cliché that is a direct result of another NFL cliché: it's a passing league now.

The Greatest Upsets Ever

Sports are so entertaining because anything can happen at any time. Buzzer beaters, individual heroism, record breaking moments, championship celebrations and even extreme despair. Maybe the best thing about sports, however, is that on any given day or in any given season any team can be victorious. That unpredictability leads to upsets, with some being of small proportions and some...

The movie will see a disagreement within the superhero team, The Avengers, with a war breaking out among them.

Why Kenyan Drake is the Next Lamar Miller

The running back of Miami's Past, Lamar Miller, and the running back of the future, Kenyan Drake, seem to be very similar players. Because of this, Drake will have no trouble stepping in and making Dolphins' fans forget all about their old running back, who left for the Houston Texans.

New Head Coach Checklist

The Cleveland Browns have suffered through perennial disappointment. The Miami Dolphins were a promising team heading into the 2015 season, and, once again, failed to live up to potential.
