Patriots RB Decisions Pure Belichick

During a week in which the Patriots visited the White House to celebrate another Super Bowl win and also come to grips with the suicide death of Tight-End-Turned-Killer-Aaron-Hernandez, probably few are paying attention to what’s taking place with the New England running back corps. While the Patriots have had a great offseason, and will undoubtedly emerge as Vegas’ odds-on favorite to win yet another Lombardi Trophy, the team’s strategy at RB has been interesting, to say the least. New England signed Buffalo backup Mike Gillislee to an offer sheet and extended Super Bowl hero (he should have been the...

What do the Texans do now?

Uh oh. Things got real in Houston this week. Real crappy. One of the worst kept secrets in the league this offseason has been the Texans’ reported desire to give Tony Romo one last chance to make a Super Bowl run. But his retirement announcement Tuesday came out of the blue and the Texans’ backup plan apparently is Tom Savage. The third-year youngster has played in five games with two starts. Now, he is reportedly the starter-in-waiting for a team that has a defense with Super Bowl aspirations and offensive skill talent that went underutilized due to the ill-advised signing...

A few years ago, Colin Kaepernick was considered one of the league’s top young stars. He was leading the 49ers to a Super Bowl, and Ron Jaworski was raving about how he might be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play the game. Things have slowly unraveled since then. He remained the Niners’ starter in 2013 and 2014, but then struggled in 2015, eventually getting benched for Blaine Gabbert of all people. And then he took a knee during the national anthem and all hell broke loose. Does he deserve another shot to be an NFL starter? And...

Why can’t Adrian Peterson find a job?

We’re about three weeks into free agency, and yet Adrian Peterson hasn’t garnered so much as a whiff from any NFL team. It’s hard to believe we’re talking about the same guy who rushed for 2,000 just a few years ago. A couple of years ago he would have been the most sought-after superstar on the market, but now…crickets. Peterson is certainly the biggest name left on the market. But does he have anything left in the tank? John:  Adrian Peterson is one of the best running backs I’ve ever watched play, and he’ll surely have a spot in...

Will the NFL Work in Las Vegas?

For the third time in just over a year, an NFL team is on the move. On Monday, NFL owners gave the Oakland Raiders the green light to relocate to Las Vegas, joining the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers as recent transplants. The Raiders are expected to start playing in Sin City as soon as 2018, with a new stadium opening a couple of years after that. The Raiders have been in Oakland, Los Angeles and back to Oakland. Will Vegas finally be home, sweet home? John: Well, if the message wasn’t clear before, it sure as heck is now:...
