The End Around: Way too early look at the 2022 coaching carousel

It is only Week 14, but reports of Urban Meyer-created dysfunction in Jacksonville and speculation about offensive-wonderkid Joe Brady’s next destination has already begun to fuel the 2022 NFL coaching carousel. While teams will likely have household names such as Eric Bieniemy, Brian Daboll and Todd Bowles at the top of their lists, I am […]

The End Around: Sorting through the AFC

The only thing I am sure about at this point in the NFL season is that the transitive property is not applicable to the NFL. The Titans beat the Bills, Chiefs, Colts, Rams and Saints but have had gut-wrenching losses to the Jets and Texans. This epitomizes the energy of this NFL season, where no […]

The End Around: Rethinking the NFL’s approach to head coaches

As I watched the 49ers get shredded by Colt McCoy and James Conner on Sunday, it felt as if I had been watching a poorly coached team. Then I remembered that in the football community, especially on Twitter, it is a cardinal sin to criticize Kyle Shanahan: the revered offensive guru and mastermind. While Shanahan […]

The End Around: Perception vs. reality, taking stock after Week 7

The team we should take more seriously  The Colts were lost at the end of Week 3, owners of a 0–3 record and an injury-prone starting quarterback who had managed to sprain not one but both of his ankles. They  proceeded to win three of their next four, going toe-to-toe with the Ravens on the […]

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.
