Interview with Arkansas Defensive Lineman Deatrich Wise Jr.

Prospect: DE – Deatrich Wise Jr., Arkansas We’d like to thank Deatrich for taking the time to answer some questions with us. MATT: To start off with, you’ve noted in the past that you’ve got the versatility and talent to play in different positions along the line of a defense. That being said, is there a certain defensive scheme at the next level that you’d be the most comfortable playing? DEATRICH: It doesn’t matter what defensive Scheme I play in.

random questions submitted by email, forum and twitter Q1:: Are there any wide receivers that are set to break out this year? (Cole in Atlanta GA) Taking a quick look around the league I see few players at wide receiver that are set to blow up. The draft could change all of that as new players will come into the position and potentially 3 quarterbacks could end up with starting gigs, changing the outlook of several receivers. Right now I’d keep an eye on Breshad Perriman, Corey Coleman and Quincy…

The Friday Sports Report – NFL Rumor Mill

The Philadelphia Eagles will look at options to move up in the first to acquire wide receiver John Ross You read that right, the Philadelphia Eagles are willing to part with picks in this draft and possibly 2018 to move up for Washington’s John Ross. The term used when describing the Eagles’ grade on Ross was ‘other worldly’. Yeah, I’m really not in agreement with this idea and if it proves to be true on the 27th I’m hoping for the fans in Philly that my assessment of Ross is…

random questions submitted by email, forum and twitter Q1:: Will Ezekiel Elliott have a second year as good as the first? (Mason in Mima FL) All the elements are there for Elliott to have some repeat success, but does history agree? When breaking down running backs with over 300 carries having repeat success, there is some inherent concern but the offensive line in Dallas is just so damn good that it’s hard to imagine a huge falloff. Dak will improve and the workload may lighten enough to see a bit…

The Friday Sports Report – 2017 NFL Draft Prospects

First Edition Quarterback As the most important position on the field starts to see its front runners emerge for the 2017 NFL Draft, it seems only fitting to point out that potential first round pick Patrick Mahomes was a player that was considered a long shot for day one at the beginning of the 2016 collegiate season. I first started suggesting Patrick as an early draft selection back near the start of October. All of the physical traits are there along with a strong competitive drive and a willingness to…

Interview with Buffalo Bills Long Snapper Reid Ferguson

MATT: Alright, Reid! We appreciate you doing this with us. It’s not very often you see an interview with a NFL team’s Long Snapper, so I’m sure plenty of people will find this interesting. Let’s go ahead and dive right into the first question. I read the story of how you and your former coach Rex Ryan got to know each other through ‘anonymity’. In it, you state that being anonymous as a long snapper is a good thing. Can you expand on that a little bit? REID: Yes, as…

MATT: Alright Ryan, we are certainly glad you could do this with us. Let’s jump right into the questions. I suppose the first question might obvious – What made you decide now was the time to retire? RYAN: The Peace and Joy in my life has grown to the point where I want to constantly enjoy it. Time with my Kids, Wife, friends and Family. I’ve gotten everything I ever wanted from the game of football, and football took everything I had. It’s time to enjoy the fruits of that…

This is the first interview that our site has done with a professional player. We are excited to share with you guys my interview with Pittsburgh Steelers Offensive Lineman Chris Hubbard. MATT: Thanks for agreeing to do this, Chris. Let’s get right into it with the first question: How big of a difference is it blocking for Le’Veon Bell in comparison to less patient Running Backs? CHRIS: I feel that Le’Veon sets up the play to where defenders don’t know where he is. MATT: That’s a good point! His hesitation…

2016 Midseason Look At The Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons have finally reached their bye week for the 2016 season, so it’s time to take a look at the current leaders of the NFC’s NASCAR division. The franchise is now in its second season under Dan Quinn’s coaching staff. The organization basically hit the reset button in 2015, shedding no fewer than 17 of its previously drafted players over the course of the year while installing new offensive and defensive schemes. The roster turnover continued as the team headed into the 2016 season, with long time Falcons…

The NFL 2016 Quarter Pole

I was in the process of gathering useless information (data, stats, records, opinions, etc.) to publish my first Power Ranking of the 2016 FL season when it dawned on me. This year, so far, has been unlike previous years in so many ways that I thought I would simply write about that useless information and allow the readers to form their Power Rankings (as if you don’t do that already). The undefeated; After week four, only three teams remain undefeated, the Vikings (4-0), the Broncos (4-0) and the Eagles (3-0)….
