This year’s Cover Interview Revealed

In case you haven’t had a chance to check the previous post – and by the way I’m honored so many people were interested and we had almost 100 posts to it — this year’s cover story interview has been revealed: Maurice Jones-Drew.

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
