Exhibition game storylines

It is kind of hard for me to post on the blog when things are really busy because I feel all the stuff that needs to be covered is on the site, but I do have something of note today and that’s the upcoming preseason games, which will start tonight.

  • 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 […]
