The Jaguars and Raiders are both horrible teams. They’ve already been eliminated from postseason contention mathematically, and it’s only Week 13. These two franchises are 2-20 combined after playing 11 games apiece. It’s a stretch to think the 2-9 Titans, Buccaneers or Jets will lose the rest and the Jags and Raiders will win two… Read More Who will have the No.1 Pick in the 2015 Draft, Jacksonville or Oakland?
Although it may seem that in recent times every post I’ve done has been about the Chargers or the Rams, maybe it’s a subconscious effort from my brain to try and write about teams before they move to Los Angeles.

Andrew Luck and Griffin, the respective No.1 and No.2 picks of the 2012 draft, have gone completely different directions. Luck is on pace to pass 40 touchdowns in only his third season, while Griffin has gone 4-14 as a… Read More Is the RGIII era in Washington over?

No matter how bad they finish, I… Read More The Worst Teams of All Time, Part 19: The 1972-1973 Chargers

Games where the quarterbacks seem to be fighting just eachother and the defense doesn’t show up, games that end up with scores like 45-42.
