Week 16 has come and gone! Only two more weeks until football completely consumes a man’s entire weekend and their girlfriend or significant other will be pissed! So get ready for that fight.

Anyways, we’ve learned quite a few things this pass weekend, from a team maybe finding their stride, to someone who is definitely getting fired, a good team getting eliminated from playoff contention, and the last spot in the AFC still being up for grabs! Continue reading “Takeaways”

NFL Head Coaching Tracker 2.0

If you remember last year, I ran a head coaching tracker, a page where fans could see daily updates about news regarding the various head coaching vacancies in the NFL. Last year saw 8 teams fire and subsequently replace their head coach. This year we have already seen two teams move on from their head coaches (Washington and Carolina), with a handful more likely to make changes.

What you’ll see now is me begin to set up what the coaching tracker will look like below, and I’ll list some names I think you’ll hear a lot about in the coming weeks; when interviews begin, this will change into a section to show you the coaches that are getting the most interviews.

Buckle up!

Note: I list someone as a candidate when another reporter does so officially, or an interview has been requested, scheduled, or taken place. Otherwise, any mentioning of a name (done so by at least one verified reporter) will mean that person is just linked to the job.

Week 16 NFL Power Rankings

Welcome back to the penultimate edition of NFL Power Rankings for 2019! We’ve almost made it to the postseason!

Since we last met, 5 more teams clinched playoff births: New England, Buffalo, Green Bay, San Francisco, and Seattle.  There are now just 4 playoff tickets left to be punched, but 9 teams are still in contention (some more than others). As you’ve seen in recent weeks, teams position in their respective conference will be listed, but I’ve noted if a team has clinched a playoff sport (* = clinched) or has been eliminated. If you see neither, that means that team could still clinch a trip to the playoffs, but has yet to do so. Good? Good.

Biggest rise: Atlanta Falcons (up 6 spots)

Biggest fall: Oakland Raiders (down 6 spots)

Week 15 NFL Power Rankings

Welcome back to NFL Power Rankings

It’s been a long and chaotic season, but there are just 3 weeks to go. Two divisions have been clinched, and three playoff spots are secured, but there is still plenty to be decided, including 17 teams fighting for the remaining 9 postseason tickets. Some like the Patriots and Packers might have an easier path than the Broncos and Bears, but there is still a ton to play for. Count seeding for those teams already in the playoffs, and things get even more interesting. It should be a fun finish.

Biggest rise: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (up 5 spots)

Biggest fall: Carolina Panthers (down 7 spots) Continue reading “Week 15 NFL Power Rankings”

What Adding Hayward Means

If you had told me prior to the beginning of the season that the Celtics would start 15-5, have a 10-game winning streak, and be a three games out of the top seed in the East, I would have thought you were insane.

Part of their success has been due to Gordon Hayward finding his old form, but he’s also been out for over 3 weeks… but he could be back soon.
