    Truth Will Be Revealed

    Hey, Dan. Really love your rookie rankings articles. Sorry about the whole Tress Way thing, I did not know he was not a rookie. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Before you do your next edition, could you take an extra look into the Skins vs. Giants game. I, and other fans, are very split on who won the Breeland vs. Beckham matchup. Beckham struggled early in the game vs. Breeland and, to me, 2 of the pass interference calls on Breeland were on passes that weren't even intended for Beckham. Shouldn't they have been illegal contact?

    And Breeland got another 15 yard penalty for retaliating after Beckham shoved him. At the end of the day, Beckham caught 0 of his 3 TDs on Breeland and had a good amount of passes intended for him broken up by Breeland. Most of his yards were against Biggers and some PS player who we just moved up.

    I know I may seem like a homer, but even if I am, a fan willing to come here and say Breeland got the better of a WR who had 12 REC, 145 yards and 3 TDs that game, there has to be some substance behind that, right?

    Please find out the real deal on The Panthers. This year the group is better than last years. Last year was just one of those year you HAD TO blow up the whole group and start all over again. Kelvin Benjamin is the first first round talent at WR in a long time. His size makes up for many short comings and he seems to have overcome the drops he once had in college. Keep an eye on The Panthers this year. GO PANTHERS!

    After the Browns took Texas QB Colt McCoy in the 1st round I don't think they will take another flyer from a Texas school. No Manziel to the Browns

    You guys should do a Madden style NFL fantasy draft. If every player were thrown into the draft pool, with a randomized draft order.
