Comparing Howie Roseman’s drafting performance to the rest of the NFL

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ How does the Eagles’ general manager stack up against his peers? The Eagles are in a tailspin. At 3-7-1, they are poised to finish near the bottom of the NFC East, a division on pace to become the worst division in NFL history. The team is a far cry from the 2017 team, which was so deep that it won the Super Bowl despite suffering significant injuries. The precipitous slide begs the question: how in the hell did we get here? There is no shortage of blame to go around. Carson Wentz looks like a shell of his former self, playing statistically and...

Everyone wants to know what this Lions team is going to look like under interim head coach Darrell Bevell. Count me in that group as well. Will the Lions offense explode? Or will nothing change and mock draft season begin? Meanwhile in...

The Bengals are stuck with Brandon Allen

Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports By playing Allen, the Bengals have decided to run the clock out on the season. Who could have foreseen this coming? A rookie quarterback getting hit at a record rate behind an inconsistent offensive-line went down with injury. Everyone, of course. If the Bengals’ coaching staff thought Joe Burrow would survive the season, they’re even more delusional than we thought. Heading into the 2020 season, there was discussion of Cincinnati picking up a veteran to mentor Burrow and perhaps even step in when he inevitably went down. Joe...

Kellen Moore will have his hands full on Tuesday night, after a slow Thanksgiving day game

After falling to the Washington Football team in a disastrous 41-16 loss at home, the Cowboys will head to Baltimore to take on an even better defense in the Baltimore Ravens. The biggest issues with Kellen Moore’s offense isn’t the play-calling, it’s the lack of talent and depth on the offensive line due to injury, and the poor play he’s getting from his quarterback and running back.
