L.A. Rams CB Jalen Ramsey Miraculously Heals From “Back Injury”

It’s nothing short of a medical miracle for Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Just one day after he arrived in Los Angeles via trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Ramsey appeared on the Rams official injury report, stating that he missed the team’s practice session for “not injury related” reasons.

So that back injury which was serious enough to keep him out of three straight games while he was still with Jacksonville has apparently healed. Wow! It’s amazing- the healing powers of a trade!

Cleveland Browns Bandwagon Seems to be Emptying in a Hurry

The Cleveland Browns entered the season as one of the most talked about teams in the National Football League. A blockbuster off-season made them the league’s media darlings, with talk of the Brownies actually putting up a fight against annual juggernaut New England for AFC supremacy.

Well, five games in, it’s been way more sizzle than steak as Cleveland is just 2-3, with a season point differential of -30. Starting quarterback Baker Mayfield tried to use all publicity as bulletin board material, believing in his mind that his team was the league’s villain, due to their national trendiness.

Chicago Bears: 2019 Unfolding Just Like 2018, but Road Ahead Vastly Differs

Past results do not always predict future performances, but they do possess a lot of information worth analyzing nonetheless. History doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme, Mark Twain famously said.

The 2019 Chicago Bears, through the first five games, not only have the same record as 2018, but they have also mirrored that path to three wins and two losses. It’s something to think about this bye week, when looking head to the next game, at home against the New Orleans Saints.   [Read more…]

2020 NFL Mock Draft 9-18-19

nfl draft

We have 2020 vision, NFL Draft style, right here, right now. It’s our fourth 2020 NFL mock draft update, and the order was based on a combination of NFL.com’s power rankings plus how we see the teams finishing the season out. Team needs were sometimes, but not often taken into account, as it’s just way too early to factor in. Obviously this will be modified many times between now and 2020 NFL Draft day.

So I implore you to really not take this very seriously, and just have fun with it. Please refrain from pointless hostility and needless acrimony in the comments section. Don’t be that guy. You have too much to do in your life than to waste it on trivial online conflict like that. Enjoy!

If even a fraction of the Browns preseason hype comes to fruition, then Cleveland will rock harder than it has in quite some time. Lebron James and the 2015-16 Cavaliers finally ended the city’s long suffering championship drought, and for that they’ll always have a special place in the hearts of fans.

However, this is a Cleveland Browns town first and foremost, and nothing fires up the denizens like football. That city, state and region of the country loves the gridiron game above all other sports, and by a wide margin.
