    Running back is easily one of the strongest and deepest positions on the team, and the grades will reflect that. There are a lot of different attributes that a RB can have, and different backs have different strengths. It can be difficult to grade backs at times because of this, however the way I try to go about it is to grade them based on what they are asked to do as well as what I think they are capable of. I won’t hold a back accountable for the line getting them hit in the backfield (thus poor ypc), but I will grade them poorly for stutter stepping and not hitting a hole when they shoul…

    2016 NFL Schmo Bowl

    The Pro Bowl has come and gone and, with the Super Bowl on the horizon, there is yet an oft forgotten, penultimate contest set to determine the schmoiest of the NFL schmoes. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines a schmo (n) thusly -An ordinary person who is not interesting or unusual in any way.Incidentally, MW also adds "JERK" as a slang alternative definition. Well, while Tee and myself have painstakingly gone through and found the schmoiest of the schmoes in the NFL from this season, we took some liberties with the 'ordinary' aspect of the definition - instead opting for the sp…

    New Orleans Saints Cutting Brandon Browner: Smart Move or Not

    Due to Browner's own tweets the New Orleans Saints are apparently cutting ties with Cornerback Brandon Browner. Is this a smart move or not? First let's discuss the cap repercussions of such a move. The New Orleans Saints have 2 options in the cutting of Brandon Browner. They can make an immediate cut on February 8th, or use the June 1st cut designation. If an immediate cut/waiver is done on Monday the Saints would only save $950,000 against the cap. The good news with doing it this way would remove Browner's cap liability from next season. This could be the plan as Drew Brees' contract…

    Three and out. Savor those words. Let them sink into your brain and emboss their shape on your cortex. Three and out. The phrase describes almost perfectly the course of this, one of the epic losses in the long, tawdry history of New Orleans Saints losses. It describes the Carolina offense, which was helpless until it wasn't. It describes the Saints' offense, which needed just ten yards to seal a victory already won, and instead gained no yards at all. I wonder: does it describe the end of our season?
