2007 Subscribers take note: We posted our initial batch of offensive player rankings & projections.

I mentioned in my last post how we had one of the best NFL scouts/analysts/minds in our office on Friday. We do this each year as a prep for the magazine and the upcoming season.

So after talking to him for a day and getting more information on players, my opinions on some of them can change.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
