Washington Needs To Find A Franchise Quarterback

There's a phrase in the NFL that rings especially true today, as many believe that the league stands for 'Not For Long'. On Wednesday, Washington head coach Ron Rivera announced that quarterback Kyle Allen would be the starter moving forward.

Houston Texans Have A Long Rebuild Ahead Of Them

The first domino fell on Monday as the Houston Texans relieved Bill O’Brien of duties. Following the 2013 season, in which the Texans fires Gary Kubiak as head coach, the organization brought in O’Brien as the franchise’s third head coach.

With the Texans franchise now in the market for a new head coach and general manager, expectations must be kept low as the rebuild process begins.

Flexibility Is Key To Big Ten Conference-Only Schedule

Within the past week, several conferences, including the Big Ten and Pac-12, have opted to alter their collegiate schedules. The coronavirus pandemic remains a fluid situation, so it's no surprise that the season won't be played as originally scheduled. On Friday, Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren announced that the Big Ten would play a conference-only schedule in 2020. By doing so, this will grant the conference some much-needed flexibility in scheduling should an outbreak occur. As is the case now, the league could potentially suspend play for several weeks. Should they do so, they'll still hit the same target for...

Thaddeus Moss Speaks Out About Draft, Father

The disappointment of not getting chosen during the 2020 NFL Draft is something that will stick with former LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss. Some have speculated that missing the 2018 season due to injury, coupled with a recent foot surgery, might have been why Moss’s name, despite its Hall of Fame pedigree, wasn’t among the 255 called during the draft. In a video conference on Wednesday, Moss described his experience as “a slap in the face.” He wasn’t among the record-tying 14 LSU Tigers selected during April’s draft, and noted it was particularly insulting to see “kickers and punters and...
