2014 NFL Draft: Updated Needs for each of the league’s 32 teams

The 2014 NFL Draft is just two weeks away and teams are making their final preparations for the big day. Free agency is largely behind us and squads are basically set heading into the draft.
With that in mind, I’ve compiled the needs of each of the NFL’s 32 teams as we approach the draft.

The 10 best picks from the 2013 NFL Draft

It’s easy to look at a draft immediately after it ends and declare a “winner” and “loser” because none of those draft picks have ever played a game. Now that those players have a full season under their belts (and with the 2014 draft right around the corner), it is a much better time to look at the outgoing rookie class and try to figure out which were the best picks.

Against the Spread Picks, NFL Divisional Round

After a lame 1-3 showing in the opening week of the postseason, it is time to spice things up for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Along with my regular ATS pick, I will also do over-under picks for each of the four games.

What if the NFL went to a bowl format?

The mainstream media celebrated the end of the Bowl Championship Series after the Florida State Seminoles’ dramatic 34-31 victory over Auburn.

Dan Wetzel and Jeff Passan will finally get their wish in 2014 as college football will debut a new playoff system.

Marvin Lewis: It’s time for Cincinnati Bengals to fire longtime head coach

Other than enjoying a few visits when residing in Indianapolis, I have no allegiance to the Queen City. That said, I was a constant critic of Cincinnati’s baseball manager, who was rightly fired after another postseason choke job in October. Therefore, to be fair, I see the same things with the city’s football coach and believe Marvin Lewis should be axed after another playoff debacle Sunday.

Against the Spread Picks: NFL wild card round

It is time to pick ‘em pal! Four games, four predictions. Time to make up for an awful end of my predicting season, although I went 6-0-1 against the number in college bowl games played on Jan. 1 and 2.

2013 NFL Predictions: AFC West Preview

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos enter the 2013 NFL season as the AFC West favorites.

At the same time, this is pro football’s weakest division. Therefore, the Broncos will be expected to dominate game after game against their AFC West rivals. Because of those expectations, it’s reasonable to anticipate the rest of the division bringing their A-game when facing Manning and co.

The San Diego Chargers are reporting that Danario Alexander tore the ACL in his right knee during Tuesday’s practice and he will miss the entire 2013 season.

5 NFL teams that could surprise in 2013

In this article, we’ll look at five sub-.500 clubs from last season that could surprise us this year. By looking at strength of schedule, the number of losses in close games, the draft, as well as offseason moves and acquisitions, I’ll make my case for each of these five teams.

Manti Te’o: San Diego Chargers rookie finally talks to media

San Diego Chargers rookie linebacker Manti Te’o finally spoke to the media after mini-camp on Tuesday. The Notre Dame product had his first press conference and took questions from assembled reporters after not speaking publicly since rookie mini-camp on May 10.

San Diego Chargers Ultimate Franchise Player

The more recent installments of Ultimate Franchise Player have been getting much tougher. The San Diego Chargers may be the most daunting of all.

Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers Preview, Point Spread, and Prediction

The Chiefs and Chargers are beginning to free fall. The Chiefs have lost four in a row, while the Chargers have lost three. One team will break their streak this week, but it will not be in impressive fashion.

Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers Preview, Point Spread, and Prediction

The top two teams in the AFC West will face off on Monday Night Football to determine the top spot in the division. A win for San Diego would give them a two-game lead over Denver, while a win for Denver would tie them for first with San Diego.

I’ll do my best to recap the unprecedented carnage from Week 5 before looking ahead to tonight’s game between Peyton Manning’s Broncos and Philip Rivers’ Chargers.

After you entertain yourselves during the Baltimore-Cincinnati matchup, the last game of Week 1 will take place tonight in Oakland as the Raiders play host to the Chargers.
