Puck the Fro Browl!

Posted 02-05-2023 at 10:41 AM by neugey

I don't care what bells and whistles are added, or that they throw in Peyton and Eli to try and save it. The Pro Bowl will be an unmitigated disaster, and even in it's hey-day outside of the novelty of vacationing in Hawaii it was always a joke anyway. The sport simply does not translate to exhibition play. Skills challenge - meh. It feels like a dick-measuring contest. Quit trying to put a square peg into a round hole.



If you want to take a stand for player safety,...

CFP: "Just Keep Doing What You're Doing"

Posted 12-08-2022 at 03:54 PM by neugey

I'm usually a believer that change is good, and I'll consider trying anything once. I am not a staunch traditionalist, but in this case just a person who sees how good things are at the current moment.

It seems that college football playoffs will expand to 12 teams in a few years. And it's a large misstep. Mine may not be a popular opinion, but I believe the playoff format the college football game has right at this moment is actually a great one. It's the right one to move forward...

This is the year

This is the year -


for a non-quarterback to win the NFL MVP. We're overdue and there are at least four awesome candidates who deserve consideration. In no particular order:



1) RB Derrick Henry - a very powerful runner with excellent vision. He is without peer among NFL runningbacks because of the sheer force and physical nature of his running. On almost any run, you can pencil him in for 3 yards gained because he's the ultimate fall-forward runner...

Head Coach Material

Posted 11-09-2022 at 07:44 AM by neugey

I was thinking about the reasons Dennis Allen isn't working out, and I think I've solved the puzzle. There is a formula for having a successful NFL (or even college) head coach.


If you are a defensive head coach, you need to have very special leadership abilities to earn your team's buy-in and keep it. If you are an offensive head coach that calls the plays or has a very strong influence on the offensive gameplan/playcalling, and you are adept at it, the bar seems to be lower....

NFL Offenses need to Get Retro

Posted 10-08-2022 at 09:56 AM by neugey

Following a lousy Thursday Night Football game, people are starting to wonder what's wrong with offenses in the NFL this season. Are NFL defenses truly that good?


To some extent, yes. The athleticism and range of defensive players in the NFL has never been better across the board. Quarterbacks are having a harder time than usual picking apart zone defenses. Zone coverage, especially the Tampa 2 style, has become much more effective than we've seen in a long time, possibly...
