Dan’s Top 10 Receivers Heading Into the 2015 NFL Season

Hot on the heels of quarterbacks we have the top 10 wide receivers. Before we get into my thoughts I strongly recommend going to check out Dylan’s excellent list here. Much like the QBs this list will be entirely based around opinions, with figures used to emphasise points. We’d love to hear your thoughts, so hit us up on twitter and facebook.

Dylan’s top 10 wide receivers heading into 2015/16

Like my top 10 quarterbacks list, this selection of the top 10 wide receivers heading into the new season is based on an amalgamation of factors, from statistical evidence, strength and structure of the team around them, to the defining factor; personal enjoyment and desire to watch them play the game. Although historical evidence and longevity will be considered, as with the quarterbacks list this is about who I would choose to have going forward this year. So without any further unneeded clarifications, here are my top 10 wide receivers heading ton 2015/16.

Simon’s Top Ten Quarterbacks going into the 2015 Season

Dylan and Dan have both shared their Top 10 QB lists for the coming season so, when Dan threw down the gauntlet of compiling mine, who was I to say no?

Any chance to play GM has to be grasped with both hands, right? Grasped like Mark Sanchez grasps the ball on a broken play QB keeper behind Brandon Moore. OK, maybe not quite like that, but you get the idea.

Dan’s Top Ten Quarterbacks heading into the 2015 Season

With Dylan’s list of quarterbacks going up earlier this week and with us covering it on the upcoming podcast, we thought it would be fun to add a different perspective. Much like Dylan I’ve taken into account stats but don’t believe you can tell how good a QB is just by looking at the numbers. This list is based primarily on what I’ve seen, with stats to help emphasise my points. Once again it’s worth stressing that this is just my personal opinion and we’d love to hear yours, so hit us up on twitter. If you haven’t already, go look at Dylan’s list here. Let’s get into it.

32 NFL Teams in 16 Weeks: New Orlean Saints

Last year we attempted to work our way through the league one by one, taking an in-depth look at every NFL team. We failed. We were short by about 6 teams, which has been the cause of many a restless night and nightmare for me. So now we have a chance to right some wrongs, Division by Division, starting with the NFC South, we are going to get through all 32 teams. I promise…hopefully. Anyway let’s look at the Saints.

Dylan’s top 10 quarterbacks heading into 2015/16

Opinion

In this article, I will be revealing who I have determined to be the top 10 players at the most important position in football heading into the 2015/16 season. Before we dive in, although I will freely admit to using statistics as an important factor in my judgment of a player, as we all know in sport, the numbers aren’t everything, and this list is just my personal choice based on a variety of reasons; mainly A) Who I would want leading my team, not necessarily the ‘best’ based on concrete evidence, and B) Taking into consideration the team they are playing in, who I believe will be able to perform to the highest level. It would also be wise to remember that this is not a ‘lifetime achievement award’ list, so although there will obviously be references to last season and beyond, it is predominantly about where these players are right now, and their ability to be my franchise QB in 2015. So with that in mind, and also remembering that Dan will be posting his own list imminently, ensuring that discussions/arguments will be sure to abound at Gents HQ, here are my top 10 signal callers in the NFL for 2015.

Filling in for a Great, Who Covers for Brady?

I have mixed feelings on Deflategate. Whilst I feel that the Patriots are guilty of a breach of rules, I feel the punishment is a tad harsh. That’s all you’ll get from me about this subject here. If you want to deeper opinions from the Gents, check out Simon’s post (here) and the podcast that will be up later in the week.

What I thought I’d do, would be look at the possible QBs that the Patriots could be looking at to replace Brady for the 1st 4 games of the 2015 season. Let’s start with the obvious.

Jacksonville Jaguars: 6 Reasons it’s going to be okay

 

9. This is the number of wins the Jacksonville Jaguars have had since Jack Del Rio was fired in 2011. It’s for this reason fans of London’s team (at least at the moment), might feel a little hard done by. 2007’s playoff win against the Steelers seems like a lifetime ago, with a team that has seemingly underachieved for the last 7 years. This year the mood amongst Jags fans took an unexpected blow early on, with no.3 overall pick Dante Fowler Jr suffering a season ending injury on his very first day of practice, a hit for the fans but more importantly the poor guy that’s set to miss his 1st season in the NFL (get well soon Dante). Jags fans are understandably wondering when their luck is going to change, with another season that they believe could see them having a top 5 pick again next year. So I’m here to tell you it’s not all doom and gloom in Jacksonville. This is a revolution, albeit a slow moving one. I have faith in this team Jags fans and whilst a Super bowl is probably a bit of a stretch I believe that this is a team that can progress, even if it’s just by a small amount and damn it I think they’ll look good doing it. So here Jags fans are my 6 reasons to be cheerful.
