The End Around: The Jaguars swung and missed, again

This offseason, like many before it, was full of hope for Jacksonville Jaguars supporters. With the addition of quarterback Trevor Lawrence and Head Coach Urban Meyer, it felt like the entire organization had received a much-needed facelift. Meyer’s catchy slogans including “+2 Mentality” and “Own It,” the team’s evolution into a players-first organization, improved strength […]

The End Around: Is it the Chargers’ time?

Sports fans, by definition, are hopeless and idealistic reactionaries. We sit glued to our seats, trying to extrapolate the bigger picture of the individual decisions, games and players that we watch. Unfortunately, I’m no different. As I sat on my couch watching the Chargers take down the Chiefs, I romanticized this Chargers victory as their […]

Off the Gridiron: Answering the biggest questions of the NFL Draft

With the No. 4 pick, the Atlanta Falcons could draft their next franchise quarterback, select "unicorn" Kyle Pitts or trade down to accumulate assets. Yes, there are clear benefits with each option, but I believe being in the position to select a franchise quarterback is too great of an opportunity to pass up. Additionally, 35-year-old Matt Ryan would be the perfect mentor and bridge to either Fields or Lance.

Off the Gridiron: Justin Fields is the No. 2 QB

NFL Network called it “the throw of the pro day season.” There was one particular throw in Zach Wilson’s pro day that stood out to NFL scouts and Twitter alike. "The throw" had the former Brigham Young quarterback in a sprint right bootleg, rolling toward the left hash and hitting receiver Aleva Hifo in-stride 60 yards downfield, as Wilson was still drifting to his left. But when former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields made a nearly identical throw in his pro day several days after Wilson, the NFL media was silent.

Off the Gridiron: Winners of free agency

The Cleveland Browns were a 14-yard run by Chad Henne and a gutsy fourth down call by Andy Reid away from having a shot at playing in the AFC championship game. The Browns are not only back, but their tenacious running game and potent play-action passing have also made them legitimate contenders in the AFC. In order to seriously challenge the Chiefs, Browns general manager Andrew Berry needed to shore up the secondary. 

Off the Gridiron: Palcic’s Revenge

It is clear that women are becoming increasingly involved in the NFL. While others have captured the national headlines recently, one very talented woman in the NFL has flown completely under the radar. On Friday, Feb. 22, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they had hired Amy Palcic to lead their public relations department.

Off the Gridiron: Hop Aboard the QB Carousel

This is a great trade for the Colts. In Wentz, they are getting a 28-year-old QB who has shown flashes of exceptionalism during his career.

Off the Gridiron: It’s time for change in the NFL

By winning the Super Bowl with this staff, the Tampa Buccaneers proved to the entire NFL world that minority coaches have a place in this league.

Off the Gridiron: Matthew Stafford to the Rams

By trading for Matthew Stafford, the Los Angeles Rams have made a major statement to the rest of the NFL: they are in it to win it. To acquire the former No. 1 pick, the Rams sent their 2022 first-round pick, 2023 first-round pick, 2021 third round pick and starting quarterback Jared Goff to the […]

Off the Gridiron: Way too early NFL playoff predictions

NFC West: San Francisco 49ers Despite their Super Bowl loss, the 49ers have the infrastructure to win the division again. Despite losing DeForest Buckner and Emmanuel Sanders, the 49ers snagged University of South Carolina defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and Arizona State University wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk in the first round, who will help the 49ers […]
