You don’t have to tell fans that the Cowboys were a huge disappointment yet again in 2012.It’s the same old story. On paper, the Cowboys look like one of the most promising teams in the league, a team that should at least make the playoffs. The Cowboys could take the field tomorrow with a full roster. So, this off-season was about upgrades for the Cowboys and building quality depth. This off-season was about trying to get back to what made this team great. It’s about getting back to not only believing you’re the best, or saying you’re the best, but being the best. Continue reading →

The draft is a great time to build for the future. Several teams in the NFC which came close to making the playoffs last season (the Bears, Cowboys, and Giants) are hoping to make the playoffs this season. Several other teams whose 2012 seasons were a disaster (the Eagles, Cardinals, and Lions) are looking to turn things around. If there was a young player or Continue reading →
The 2013 NFL Draft is in the books and training camps are only three months away! This weekend you probably heard a lot of spin about certain draft picks and what they mean for all 32 teams. The draft took many interesting twists and turns this week, but there were at least four developments that stood out which affect both reality, and fantasy. As fantasy footballers know, fantasy football titles Continue reading →
The first round of the draft is always the most unpredictable. One week ago, no one would have believed the Dolphins would trade down to the third pick to draft a defensive end as opposed to the best offensive tackle on the board. No one would have believed that DJ Hayden would have been the first defensive back drafted. No one would have believed Continue reading →
This year’s draft will likely be the most unpredictable in history. One thing appears certain though. A large number of offensive linemen will be drafted. It is expected that four offensive tackles will be drafted within the first seven picks in the draft. One quarter of the picks will be spent on offensive linemen, tackles and guards. This could be a record! In terms of quarterbacks, at least one quarterback, maybe Continue reading →
“Taking care of business” is the name of the game in free agency and in the NFL draft. It’s a time teams evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their roster and then try to make everything better. Evaluating players isn’t easy, but neither is deciding when a need on your team should be filled and by which player. Evaluate the player, the role they will fill on the team, and then decide when to take them in the draft. It’s executing a game plan. It’s fantasy football, but in reality. Continue reading →
If you thought the number of quality free agents on defense was thin, it’s even thinner on the offensive side of the ball. Many teams should be set with free agent on offense until after the NF draft which is just days away. Also when the clock struck midnight on Friday, April 19th, restricted free agents like wide receiver Victor Cruz and running back Chris Ivory could no longer negotiate with other teams. Put another way, Continue reading →
With just under a week before the NFL draft, this is one last opportunity to look at the defensive signings to date. At this point, teams are making a few last minute signings to fortify rosters, before the draft, so teams can focus on the players they truly want to draft to fill their team’s greatest need.
