Jared Goff’s debut for Rams highlights problems in his game and offense as a whole

LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff, the number one overall pick in April over Carson Wentz and many others, made his first official start on a rainy Sunday versus the Miami Dolphins. The highly-anticipated debut was already on shaky ground as many questioned how a player taken that high couldn’t sniff the field for 10 weeks

The trickery of Doug Baldwin’s touchdown pass to Russell Wilson

The Seattle Seahawks came away with a 26-15 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in large due to their success on explosive plays offensively and defensively. This is a closer look at one of those plays and how it unfolded with a little bit of trickery and ended in Russell Wilson catching a touchdown

Breaking down CJ Prosise’s 72-yard TD vs Eagles

Early in the first quarter on the Seattle Seahawks’ second drive against the Philadelphia Eagles, rookie running back C.J. Prosise broke free for a 72-yard touchdown run. How did it happen? The Seahawks call an inside zone running play to the left on 2nd-and-2 at the their own 28-yard line: I'll be looking at CJ

Can Robert Kelley keep his job as the Redskins starting RB?

Running back Robert Kelley couldn’t do enough to get selected in the draft when he was coming out of Tulane this year, but did just enough things right to have the Washington Redskins sign him afterwards. As most undrafted free agents go, Kelley had low odds to make the final roster, and yet he did

How Doug Baldwin led the Seahawks to an upset win over the Patriots

Despite a mountain of hype that stood almost no chance of being lived up to, the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots had an epic Sunday night game that ultimately ended with the Seahawks outlasting the Patriots to win 31-24. Looking at Seattle’s offense, a major contributor that helped them in their victory was outstanding

Russell Wilson was near perfect against the Bills

After having one of the worst games of his career versus the New Orleans Saints, Russell Wilson completely redeemed himself versus the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night. Earlier this week I looked at his beautiful touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham in the second quarter, but I wanted to take an even deeper dive looking at

Russell Wilson’s perfect TD throw to Jimmy Graham

Fight past the noise of Richard Sherman, flags, and controversies with kickers’ wives and you’ll notice that incredible football that was played on Monday night. In an exciting Seattle Seahawks victory over the Buffalo Bills, Russell Wilson threw one of the most spectacular lob passes you’ll ever see, and it happened to go for a

There’s something wrong with Russell Wilson versus the Saints

After analyzing the New Orleans Saints’ “pick” plays during the fourth quarter earlier in the week, I wanted to take a deeper look at the offense to see why they were struggling to produce despite having so many offensive weapons. This game had one glaring issue to me: Russell Wilson did not play well. He

Blame both Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson for lack of production

One of the key storylines of the 2016 season is the lack of production by Jacksonville Jaguars’ wide receiver Allen Robinson. In 2015, he had a breakout year gaining 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns, all while maintaining a 9.2 yard per yard average. Fast forward to the 2016 season, Robinson has only gained 336 yards

Yes, the Saints got away with 2 illegal “pick” plays in the 4th

The Seattle Seahawks lost to the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday and on two separate occasions the Saints got away with illegal “pick” plays. Now, I normally don’t like discussing penalties, but after watching the game closely I couldn’t ignore how much these two plays impacted the overall flow of the game. Before we

How Earl Thomas’ range and intelligence leads the Seahawks

In a purely defensive battle last Sunday, Seattle Seahawks’ free safety Earl Thomas was one of the premier stars to behold. He was all over the field making plays and nearly came away with two interceptions. Versus the Arizona Cardinals, Thomas lined up as the deep free safety, but also played a fair bit of

The most casual sack of Cliff Avril’s career

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, coming off a dominant performance against the Atlanta Falcons, was no worse for the wear versus the Arizona Cardinals. He finished the game with 2.5 sacks, six quarterback hits, and two pass deflections. This was easily his best game of the season. As I was going through the game
