This has been a rare year in which the top pick of the draft has actually been the best rookie the same year. Cam Newton is my Rookie of the Year. Here’s the rest of my 2011 NFL All-Rookie Team. Continue reading
The 49ers continue to surprise, the Lions should be grateful for the position they’re in, and there’s a shake up at the bottom of the league. Plus, when will we all (Te)bow down to the greatness of Tim Tebow? Are the Jaguars primed for a run at the division now that Matt Schaub is out for the season? Find out here! Continue reading
Did a crazy week in the NFL change the rankings?
- Green Bay Packers (4-0) – Aaron Rodgers became the first player in NFL history to pass for 400 yards, run for two touchdowns, and pass for four more. The MVP race is far and away Aaron Rodgers’ to lose…and it’s only October. The pass defense still needs help, as they allowed Kyle Orton to throw for 273 yards, three TD’s, but three INT’s, as well.

This week’s QB frenzy stems directly from that point. Teams want to win. You cannot make the postseason with a lousy QB unless that team is really good. Following this, people will move mountains for quarterbacks they even think will be good. This is why the Vikings traded for Donovan McNabb, the Cardinals traded for Kevin Kolb, the Titans signed Matt Hasselbeck and the Panthers drafted Cam Newton first overall. The NFL is unquestionably obsessed with QBs Continue reading
