ON THE CLOCK: Buc the Draft

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Random Thought on Bucs Draft The draft is just hours away and as Bucs GM Jason Licht said a few weeks ago, “This is the most important draft in the history of the Bucs organization.”  He’s right, this draft is important…every draft should be important, but this is an important draft because the Bucs are […]

    Black Monday is quickly approaching, this is the day we see NFL Head Coaches handed pink slips and a boot to the ass out of the organization they have presumably spent more time with than their families. But this is a business and while some owners give Coaches a long leash most have […]

Early Christmas Gift for the Browns Fans

JOSH GORDON (Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports)

What the Hell are the Browns going to do to fix what seems like a lifelong nightmare? How can they, as a franchise, make it to the promised land of the Play-offs and maybe even the Super Bowl?  They need to win more games, that’s the short and direct answer but how they go about […]

Week 11 JJ Rankings

JOSH GORDON (Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports)

First place is a bad place to be. Wait….what? That doesn’t make any sense. Well it did in Week 11. First place teams went a puzzling 2-6. The only two wins came at the expense of other first place teams, so if you take those two games out of the equation, first place teams went […]

JJ Rankings week 10

9)       Seattle (6-3)

Turnovers kill. In a season where the playing field has been so level, giving the ball away can be the equivalent of giving the game away. Just ask the Pittsburgh Steelers. Coming into Week 10, they were arguably the hottest team in football. So there is no way they should have struggled with the lowly […]

JJ Rankings WEEK 9

1)       Arizona (9-1)

No Carson Palmer? No problem. Drew Stanton completed passes to 10 different receivers, and the defense was dominant. Next week’s game in Seattle should be fun (USA TODAY Sports / Matthew Emmons)

  The NFL is a funny league. The balance of power is so uneven. For instance, in the AFC North, Baltimore is in last place with a 5-4 record. In the NFC South on the other hand, New Orleans is in first place with a 4-4 record. So while it is possible that the Ravens […]

JJ Ranks them Week 8

6)       Denver (7-3)

Peyton Manning clearly struggles against teams that can apply pressure on the quarterback without blitzing. Let’s see how he handles his next two games against Miami and KC, especially with all of the injuries the Broncos have sustained on the offensive side of the ball (photo Ron Chenoy / USA TODAY Sports)

  So this is the new NFL, huh? This is what the league mustaches want? If so, I’m not buying in. Call me old fashioned, but I actually enjoy the running game and defensive battles. Instead, we have been handed rule changes that have made it nearly impossible to play defense. The illegal contact rule […]

WEEK 7 JJ Ranks ’em

After another week in the books, the NFL continues to throw curveballs at its fans. The Seahawks seem to be falling apart, after trading Percy Harvin and falling to the Rams. The Bills pulled off a last second win, but lost their entire starting backfield. The Cowboys continued to take the league by storm. Detroit […]
