The Future of Jim Mora

Although the “contract extension” Mora received this off-season was notable, I don’t really view it as a contract extension. It would seem that all the team did was guarantee the last two years of his contract (2007 and 2008) and added one more year to the deal. Not much of an extension despite those trying to spin it as a three-year extension. Recently I received a copy of the Scout.com’s 2006 Pro Football...

Duckett’s Future

There continues to be plenty of talk about the potential trading of T.J. Duckett. Personally, I don’t see it happening. There just really isn’t a market out there for Duckett, unless of course a starter gets injured. But then again, so many teams are liking more and more the smaller, quicker backs, that Duckett is becoming somewhat old-fashioned in the NFL. Frankly, ability aside, Duckett would start on few teams. Very few...

Pudge’s Power Rankings – June

Here are the June power rankings. You’ll notice there are some significant changes for a few teams, which is not caused really by anything they’ve done or not done in the past month in terms of personnel moves (with exception to the Steelers), but rather based on me tweaking the formulas and tinkering with the numbers a little more. Hopefully, I won’t have to do that anymore, since I’m fairly confident again...

Big Ben

For the past few days, I’ve been thinking about writing something about Roethlisberger, but it’s a subject that is a bit difficult to broach. I like Big Ben.

That fifteen...

Steve Hoffman = The Enemy?

Anybody that has visited the forums over the past two or so weeks should know that I have been recently voicing a lot of disdain for Steve Hoffman. Why? Because the man as I said it is a joke. And I’m not backing down from my assessment. They call him a kicking guru, but where are this guru’s disciples? They are missing because there are none. None of his projects in Dallas ever were able to stick in the NFL. Over 16...

The Ricky Williams Saga

Recently, there has been a bit of a buzz about Ricky Williams. Theismann called him a disgrace, a few have jumped on that bandwagon. Others have indicated that some team is going to be making a huge mistake when he is likely reinstated next year. I’m here to say, no they aren’t. Ricky is going to be a cheap running back. And the fact is that his transgressions aren’t that bad. Nobody else seems to be saying so I am....
