Category: Draft and Free Agency

My 2017 Draft wish list

The 2017 Draft is almost upon us and, as always, there have been endless predictions as to what we’ll see and who will pick who, where. I’m not going to try and predict what is going to happen (Dan has already done an excellent job of that in his Mock...

Dan’s Mock Draft 2017

Before I start I should stress that I don’t claim to be a draftnik, although I have spent a lot of time watching a good chunk of this year’s potential draftees. So why would I spend time doing a mock draft, something that is ultimately pointless? Well the short answer...

Free Agency Difference Makers: NFC

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,...

Bucc-ing the trend: NFC South Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been on a positive trend the last couple of seasons and if they were in any other division would most likely be finishing higher up, easily coming second in many. Having spent a ferry journey talking to one Scottish Bucs fan, I know there are...

Indianapolis Colts: Betting heavy on Luck

2016 has been a strange and eventful year with interesting decisions being taken that just make you go “What? Why? Is that really a good idea?” Most recently that was the appointment of Boris Johnson as home secretary, but to Colts fans, Jim Irsay did it when he extended Grigson’s...

Saints sailing under a strong Brees

I always hope Saints fans use this joke “Knock knock” “Who’s there?” “Wendy” “Wendy who?” “Oh wendy Saints come marching on, oh when the Saints come marching on” but they probably don’t. It’s been a tough couple of seasons for Brees and crew competing in a very competitive NFC South,...

NFC South: Falcons flying high?

I start my look at the NFC South with the Atlanta Falcons, purely because my other half brought me back a Falcons cap from her trip to Atlanta for a conference (sorry Atlanta, overall she was not impressed with the city). It’s a nice cap and she liked the logo...
