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

Posted 12-08-2022 at 04:54 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 08:44 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 10:56 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...

The NFL Has a Sports Medicine Problem (fixed)

Posted 10-01-2022 at 11:07 AM by neugey

After seeing the Tua concussion on Thursday Night Football and listening to a lot of media members speak on the topic, it seems like there is a lot of tunnel vision right now with everyone fixated on solving concussions. It was indeed a scary injury, and I hope Tua will be okay. But due to recency bias, I feel people aren't seeing that the events of this last week are a symptom of a bigger medical problem in the NFL.

I'm not going to be afraid to take big swings in this blog, because...
