I have no issues with your anaysis save one: Denver will be playing against the NFCW this year, where the quality of the defenses will stifle Peyton. There is a decent chance that they will lose all 4 of those games. Should that happen, they will be lucky to win 10 games.
Nick, you mention in the article about expanded playoffs that Robert Quinn is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year. I guess I missed something, I thought that was Luke Kuechly. Also, if the Rams have the best D-Line in football, why did the Panthers record more sacks than any other team in the league, and have the 2nd ranked defense?
I am now just beginning to enjoy your columns, I do have a different perspective of the moves of the Carolina Panthers. I see the moves as being far more productive than most will realize until the season begins. Popular names & celebratory picks never win much in sports. It is the sum total of the work put in as ONE that will make the difference. You are spot on with the rest.
you don't know shit.
Hi Nick, I read your post on biographies you'd like to read. Do you have suggestions of players who have made it with the support of a low-income mother? I need these for an effort focused on building and celebrating the wisdom of poor mothers (www.poormomwisdom.com).
The idea is this: A lot of poor mothers raise strong children even in poverty. Highlighting that and investing in programs that help build that wisdom is one of the best investments we can make in the U.S economy and society. I want to include brief profiles of wise mothers and include some celebrity profiles. I remember hearing a lot of players attribute their success to struggling mothers but now can't recall them. Thanks!
Of course, if any Bleacher Report readers have suggestions, I would love to hear them!
So much for that Saints defense "falling back to earth" against the Bears. Saints have allowed only 73 points all year and 7 of those were from a pick-six.
You're Clock Watchers guide was the best thing I have ever read. I love you so much. You watch both the Office and Breaking Bad <3
You're "last minute predictions for NFL week 2" were laughably inaccurate. You weren't even close on most, and the ones you did get right did not go as you thought they would.
