Embed from Getty Images Earlier this week, the NFL released its final 10 players on its #NFLTop100 list. This is a list that examines the league’s 100 best players heading into the season – as voted on by the other players. You know a list like that is going to be quarterback-heavy and saturated with skill position players. I tried to be well-rounded in my list, although I did include…

Evaluating Hall of Fame Odds for 10 Active Major League Pitchers

Embed from Getty Images This isn’t your father’s Hall of Fame. At least not for starting pitchers. There’s a good chance no pitcher will again crack the 300-win plateau, a mark that has been achieved 24 times throughout the sport’s history. Even 250 wins is a rare accomplishment at this point. The ageless Bartolo Colon leads all active pitchers with 235, CC Sabathia is next at 230, and then it’s…

Power Ranking Top 100 Players in NFL History (Part III: #10-1)

It’s no easy task to look at the National Football League’s 97-year history and select the 100 best players to ever wear a uniform. The game has evolved from a run-heavy, pass-resistant environment to one in which the modern rules cater to high-volume passing attacks. Statistics are readily available to today’s fans, but that wasn’t the case 50, 40, even 30 years ago. I can’t pretend to have watched all…

SwartzSports 2017 Mock Draft with Trades

Embed from Getty Images   Mock drafts are fun, but you know what is even more fun? A mock draft with trades. Trades happen, and to pretend that no team will trade out of its spot is irrational. That’s why I included a handful of them in here. Whether a trade involves Malcolm Butler, Jimmy Garoppolo, Richard Sherman, a potential blockbuster trade up for a quarterback, or something we’ve never…

Power Ranking 50 Best Quarterbacks in NFL History (Post-2016 Edition)

Embed from Getty Images   It’s been just a year since I ranked my 100 best quarterbacks ever, but following another Super Bowl victory for Tom Brady, it’s time to re-evaluate the all-time best. Is Brady now the best to ever play the position? Does Aaron Rodgers crack the top 10 after another stellar campaign? Where does Matt Ryan stand up against the game’s quarterbacks, present and past? Let me…
