Patriots on the Charge(rs)

Wow, the Chargers really put on a master class against the Ravens, 7 defensive backs to stifle Lamar Jackson and keep the Ravens’ innovative offence in check. A bold strategy from a fine defensive mind, after all Gus Bradley is the architect of the Legion of Boom It seems on...

2017 Power Rankings: Week 12

There is about as big a difference between the AFC and the NFC that we’ve seen in recent years. The NFC is fighting it out for potential playoff spots, where as the AFC (bar a couple of obvious competitors) seems to be falling over themselves to be completely irrelevant. Let’s...

2017 Power Rankings: Week 11

Right folks, we’re 11 games in and it’s time to start taking this a little seriously. No more teams at no. 32 because they repeatedly put a QB I happen to quite like in harm’s way. Nope my no. 32 team is genuinely the team I think is the worst...

Superbowl XLIX: A look at the deciding factors & MVPs

It is rare that an event as hyped up as the Super bowl lives up to expectation. When we are left to over analyse 1 game for 2 weeks it’s understandable that the actual product we are presented with can be something of a let-down. So when we are faced...

Changing of the guard: A discussion of dynasties

One of the things I love most about sport in general, and the NFL in particular, are the narratives that drive players, coaches, franchises and the unquenchable dreams of us fans. This Sunday, when the New England Patriots take on the Seattle Seahawks at the University of Phoenix stadium, the...
