The Patriots' Super Bowl Success Relies On The Brady-Gronk Connection

Since Randy Moss got the Jazzy Jeff toss from the New England in the middle of the 2010 season, Patriots fans have spent offseason after offseason squawking about the team's need for a deep-threat receiver. Those people are idiots. The current Patriots do not need a deep threat, because Tom Brady sucks at the deep…

How Man-Child Tight End Rob Gronkowski Revived The Patriots' Offense

Rob Gronkowski—whose skull houses one 14-oz. official NFL "The Duke" football, and whose circulatory system is chiefly responsible for the delivery of Natural Light—has been incredible for the last few weeks. Tom Brady's missed his best receiver at full speed, and they're making up for lost time. Gronk's been the…

The Chiefs' Travis Kelce Might Be The Next Revolutionary Tight End

The best NFL offenses are lousy with new-breed tight ends—guys like Rob Gronkowski, Julius Thomas, and Jimmy Graham, the dudes who bust up defenses with an unfair blend of size, speed, and pass-catching ability. And while you can't really tell from the raw numbers, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is one of Those…

Branden Oliver Is San Diego's New, Improved Darren Sproles

The Chargers looked stacked at running back before the season started. Ryan Mathews would lead, Danny Woodhead would find some carries and work as a frequent pass-catcher, and Donald Brown would do... something—So nice to have you, Donald! By Week 5, Mathews, Woodhead, and Brown were sidelined by injury. That's fine,…

How The Cowboys Have Made The Most Out Of Ex-Bust Rolando McClain

Remember Rolando McClain? The star Alabama linebacker the Raiders took with their first pick in 2010, hailed as a surprisingly wise move by then-owner Al Davis? The guy who was, naturally, a huge bust because the Raiders can't have nice things? Well, he popped up on the Cowboys this season playing a competent middle…

DeMarco Murray Has Been The NFL's Best Running Back. Can He Keep It Up?

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is dominating the NFL right now, leading the league with 670 yards in five games, 210 more than the next guy, Le'Veon Bell. Murray got there on 130 attempts, an absurd number at this point of the season (sad-ass LeSean McCoy is in second place with 94). He's on track to pass his…

Tyron Smith Isn't A "Cowboy For Life." He Just Got Screwed.

Yesterday, Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith signed an enormous eight-year extension, valued at $110 million over 10 years. Today, Dallas is telling everyone that it guarantees Smith will be a "Cowboy for life." As we know by now, the numbers in NFL contracts are bullshit. But this is outrageous enough bullshit that…
