Power Ranking NFL’s 100 Greatest Running Backs of All-Time (Part I: #100-51)

May 31, 2016

Embed from Getty Images   Running back is a unique position. It’s constantly devalued in today’s NFL as the modern game is centered primarily on pass-happy offenses and high-volume numbers. But when you have a special player like Adrian Peterson – a ball-carrier who can run with the football, catch passes, and block – he’s a franchise player worth keeping around. The greatest of all-time were those who could do…


Projecting Philadelphia Phillies’ Lineup and Starting Rotation in 2019

May 30, 2016

Embed from Getty Images   For the first time in several years, there’s reason for optimism among Philadelphia Phillies fans. New general manager Matt Klentak has the team trending in a positive direction, and a plus-.500 winning percentage in mid-May is stunning, to say the least.

Handing Out MLB Awards at the Quarter Mark of the 2016 Season

May 23, 2016

It’s been an unusual first quarter of the season in baseball. We’ve had the Cubs jump out to arguably the hottest start by any team in baseball history. We’ve had the continued Mike Trout vs. Bryce Harper debate, as well as legitimate consideration that either Clayton Kershaw or Jake Arrieta is, right now, the most dominant pitcher in major league history.  Below I will take a look at the individual…


Projecting the 53-Man Roster for the 2016 Philadelphia Eagles

May 21, 2016

May 4, 2016

Embed from Getty Images Following the Philadelphia Eagles’ pre-draft trade up for North Dakota state quarterback Carson Wentz, the organization made Oregon State guard Isaac Seumalo their next pick, taking him midway through the third round.

Seumalo actually has the versatility…


Complete Philadelphia Eagles Analysis for the 2016 NFL Draft

May 1, 2016

When history looks back on the 2016 Eagles’ draft class, they’re not going to care about seven of their eight picks. They’re really not. It’s all going to come back to whether North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz was able to develop into a franchise player at the most important position in sports.  The pressure on Wentz is even more extreme than your typical number two overall selection because the…
