Cortez Kennedy Passes Away

Tue, 23 May 2017 13:23:14 -0400

Former defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy has died at the age of 48, per the Orlando Police Department.

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012. R.I.P.

The Panthers Have the Weapons to Conquer the NFL with Option Football

Thu, 18 May 2017 15:50:59 -0400

ESPN: Updated 2017 Team Projections

Mon, 15 May 2017 12:45:45 -0400

Here are some updated 2017 team projections on ESPN Insider. These are fairly similar to those we ran in April, because the NFL draft doesn't have as much effect as you might think on the ability to predict next season. Obviously, the draft can have a huge effect -- it just isn't a predictable one. The one thing we have found is that drafting defensive talent high is more positive for the immediate future than drafting offensive talent, which is why the Colts and Ravens are a little better in this forecast while the Chargers and Bengals drop a little.

NFL Names Alberto Riveron Head of Officiating

Wed, 10 May 2017 11:42:09 -0400

I wish I could tell you I had some kind of insightful, complicated analysis of this move, but I don't. Alberto Riveron will move from the field to the head office to replace Dean Blandino, at least partially. The league also has announced Russell Yurk will head up the league’s replay department, so he's the guy who will be in charge of the central decision-making on replay every Sunday.
