Week 10 wonders

What a weekend that was in the NFL. Here’s my rundown on some games that caught my eye. Panthers vs Steelers: Big performance from the Steelers. This game should have been competitive but it really, really wasn’t. I fancied the Panthers in this one but after what was an impressive...

Why we should all be watching Carolina

There is a team whose offense is completely flying under the radar at the moment and it’s a great tragedy that they are. Patrick Mahomes delights us weekly with gaudy passing numbers, skilful throws and getting the best out of an outstanding cast of pass catchers. Sean McVay delights us...

Fritz Pollard: A True NFL Trailblazer

2017 Schedule: A first look

Unpopular Headlines of Every NFC Team.

Hello my name is Dan, and I’m a glutton for punishment. Okay so I’m aware that all I’m really doing here is setting myself up for a lot of internet hate, but I just can’t help myself… I’ve gotta do it. I’ve got to get these “truths” (which are entirely...
