Aspiring sports writer that is letting the world know my thoughts and predictions on the NFL.

For over the last decade, we have been blessed with Super Bowls that have stayed close to the end, that is until now, as the Seahawks proved once again that "defense wins championships" and record-breaking offenses fall short, as the Broncos were decimated 43-8. So you might wonder was this the worst defeat in Super Bowl history? Well, let’s look at the past and rank the top-5 biggest losses in Super Bowl history. 5) Super Bowl XLVIII 2013 Season - Seahawks 43 Broncos 8: This game had all the ingredients to be a classic - you had Peyton Manning and Denver’s record breaking offense, going toe-to-toe, with the number one defense...

In the world of fantasy football, you can find a great quarterback like Andrew Luck, Colin Kaepernick, Matt Ryan, and many others later in the draft and still get the points you need to succeed. Still, some fantasy owners believe the key to success is to find that elite quarterback that will lead their team to a fantasy crown in the first or second round. However, a quarterback worth such a high draft choice is rare; still there are at least five worthy of this honor. 1) Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr7rCvHQiyY 38-year-old Peyton Manning must be drinking from the fountain of youth, as he gave us yet...

While most fantasy owners go after a quarterback in the earlier rounds of the draft, others like to stockpile on running backs and receivers and wait until the last few rounds to pick up their man. This is a risky move but it can pay off greatly, especially if you find the right quarterback. So it makes you wonder with most of the productive quarterbacks already scooped up who out there is worth the gamble and could possibly pay off considerably. Jake Locker, Tennessee Titans So far it seems that Jake Locker has broken mirrors and came across a black cat or two, as injuries have held him back throughout his three-year career. Since...

With the Miami Heat gearing up for their fourth straight NBA Final appearance and only four wins away from being the first team to three-peat since the Los Angeles Lakers did it from 2000-02, most would think it would be crazy if the Heat’s “Big 3” disbanded after this season. Still, what if LeBron decided to break his legacy up into three different chapters; the first as the hometown hero, then as the King of South Beach, and finally a unwritten chapter that would start next season. In addition, if you look at the Heat roster most of the formidable players playing with these three superstars are getting up there in age, with Shane...

With Darrelle Revis due a resounding $16 million for the upcoming season, new Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht and head coach Lovie Smith believe it is just too high a price to keep the three-time All-Pro cornerback and former Defensive Player of the Year. It also became even more apparent that Revis’s playing days in Tampa Bay are done when they signed cornerback Alterraun Verner to replace him. The Browns and Raiders were reportedly interested in making a trade, but Revis will not come down on his price and the chances for the Bucs to getting anything in return seem to have already passed. Therefore, with Revis refusing to take...

The NFL Combine is in the rearview mirror and free agency, only a day away, will have major implications on where this year's NFL Draft prospects end up . Now, before the free agency frenzy begins, let’s take another attempt at predicting how this year’s Draft will turn out. This mock draft only covers the first round and does include trades, because we all know there will be a few going down on draft day. So without further ado, here’s my second edition NFL mock draft for 2014.   1) Houston Texans – Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDkBsXdb9YM This year’s draft has a few...

NFL teams are using their franchise and transition tag less and less as the number of players tagged in 2012 accumulated to a total 20, but dwindled down to just eight in 2012, and now even less with only six teams using it this year. Surprisingly safety Jairus Byrd from Buffalo, left tackle Eugene Monroe out of Baltimore, and Raiders defensive end Lamar Houston were not tagged and seem on their way to free agency, if their respective teams fail to work out a deal by March 8th. Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes and Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta were able agree on contracts saving their franchises the trouble of deciding if they were...

Free Agency begins March 11, and like always, not long after that - players will be signing contracts and holding jerseys while smiling for the cameras. As of right now we still have not had one player franchised tagged and only a few have resigned or been released, so things haven’t quite developed yet. Still going by all the rumors there are some players that seem destined to play elsewhere, so let’s examine ten players that have kept the rumor mill going. 1) Greg Hardy , DE, Panthers Greg Hardy has racked up 26 sacks in the last two seasons and had a monster year plowing down quarterbacks in 2013 with a career high of 15...

The free agency frenzy is right around the corner, where teams are looking for that next player they hope can take them to the next level. Now the truth of the matter is that after all the money gets dished out and it is time for players to prove their worth, things do not go as well as expected. Nevertheless, there are those rare instances where a player does influence the team and help bring success, so let’s look back at the last decade and see which players exceeded expectations.   1) Drew Brees, Saints, 2006 httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qke24uxGmI4 In 2006 after the Chargers finally decided to move on with Phillip...

Last year during free agency we saw the Browns, Dolphins, Eagles, Colts, and Titans make big splashes with their money. Thanks to Micheal Ginnitti at http://www.spotrac.com we get the most accurate numbers on who has the most cap space this year. With this information, we see there are five teams that have over $30 million dollars in cap space. While these teams have the money to sign anybody they want, you have to take a closer look, to see where all these teams stand and what positions need attention from these franchise's this off-season, to get a better outlook on how free agency will play out this year. 1) Oakland Raiders - $63...
