Making gains: The NFC

Post Free Agency and Draft, some teams have seen their roster change a little, some a lot. As a result there will be teams that improve significantly in 2017 over last year and others who may struggle to repeat their relative success. Dan has already taken a look at the...

Making gains: The AFC

With Free Agency and the Draft now in the books, some teams’ rosters are looking very different to a few months ago. With all the personnel changes (on and off the field for some teams), some will get stronger and some will fall away. Here we take a look at...

Draft Review

This year’s NFL draft brought an insane amount of depth, with potential starters being drafted as late as the 5th/6th Round and I think it’s fair to say that there’s a good chance that at least 26 teams probably had a very good draft, with the others having just a...

Sleepers in Seat…. ummm… Philadelphia

We’ve all heard about the Garretts and McCaffreys of this year’s Draft, but what about the sleepers who, based on my observation, could represent incredible value for teams in Rounds 2 to 7? Here I lay out three projections based on specific traits that I have seen on film but, despite that,...

With Free Agency well in to its second week, there have been plenty of player movements to digest and dissect. Having looked at all 16 teams in the AFC, it’s time to turn the spotlight on to the NFC and which players I think will be making an impact for...

Free Agency Difference Makers: AFC

It has been an eventful Free Agency period to start the new NFL year, and there have been some big money deals handed out (not always to players you would expect, either!) and some bargain pick-ups. Over the course of this and my next post, I’ll single out the one...

The well oiled Texans

As a Colts fan I shouldn’t really like any other rival in the division, but I do. I like the Texans defense and though I think the AFC South 2015 champions won because they had no real competition, they had the best defense and as we know from last season,...
