Finally, for the Foos

A small off-football topic today. I’ve been waxing poetic on the Foo Fighters on these pages (both online and in hard copy) for literally 12 years, and they have finally gotten their just due with some high-profile Grammy nominations (Album of the year) and a Grammy win for Rock album of the year.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the […]
