Former All-OVC Guard of THE Jacksonville State Gamecocks & Former All-Arena C/G of the Baltimore Brigade & Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League.

NFL Offensive Line Of The Week (W3) My NFL Offensive Line Of The Week (Week 3) is the Jacksonville Jaguars. A group that has been slowly, but surely invested in over the last 5 years is finally starting to put it together. In 2021, they were a very solid group. Ranked amongst the top ten in pressures allowed to be exact. However, with the addition of All-Pro Guard Brandon Scherff & rookie center Luke Fortner, they’ve taken the step from solid to very very good. Going into Sunday, the Chargers defensive line was figured to have the clear advantage. All-Pro…

NFL Performance Of The Week (W3) My NFL Performance Of The Week (Week3) comes from none other than Jacksonville Jaguars Quarterback Trevor Lawrence. After a less than stellar rookie campaign riddled with controversy (mostly due to every one other than him), subpar play, losing, and the occasional clear flash of the generational talent he was heralded as, you began to wonder if you’d ever see this guy realize his full potential while in Jacksonville. After hiring Doug Pedersen, drafting well & adding through free agency, the Jaguars went from a laughing stock to semi respectable. However, the success of the…

NFL PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK For week two, the NFL Performance of the Week goes to Miami Dolphins trio – Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill & Jaylen Waddle. The on field performance, which we will dive into, was undeniably incredible. However, the fact that the lofty (and to some unrealistic) expectations the trio had put in front of them are being met so soon is even more admirable. You have to throw a bone to Head Coach Mike McDaniel here as well. The 2nd half play calling was absolutely beautiful. Even still, the difficulty level of the throws and catches that…

NFL OFFENSIVE LINE OF THE WEEK The Miami Dolphins are the – NFL Offensive Line Of The Week. The Dolphins OL group has been one of the more unstable and maligned over the last 3 years of football. There’s no need to rehash all the terrible statistics & crazy metrics, but by all accounts they were a historical bad group. However, through time, free agency & a new coaching staff this group seems to be making serious strides. Other than one first half drive, where there were 3 consecutive MA’s (missed assignments) this group was a rock solid as you…

NFL OL Of The Week (Week 1) My best NFL OL of week 1 is the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs racked up nearly 500 yards of offense and scored 44 points in their season opener. 360 yards through the air on 39 attempts. 128 yards on the ground on 27 attempts. That production at this level, especially in week one, is far past anything you could’ve asked for as a coaching staff & fanbase. The most impressive part, which we will get into later, is the balance and versatility in which the hogs up front allow for the Chiefs…

2022 NFL MVP Predictions 1. Justin Herbert: In the first two years of an NFL career, no quarterback has thrown for more yards or touchdowns than Justin Herbert. In 2021, Herbert finished top three in yards, touchdowns, & QBR. He also led the Chargers to 4th in total offense. The fact that the Chargers have spent like a franchise that believes they have the best player in football says a lot. Star wide receivers Kenan Allen and Mike Williams are back. The additions of rookie offensive linemen Zion Johnson and Jamaree Salyer sored up the offensive line. Backs added include…

Webb’s 5 Touchdown Day propels Gamecocks to 2-0 For Gamecock faithful, Saturday could not have gone much better as the Jacksonville State Gamecocks defeated the Davidson Wildcats for the second time in less than two years with an impressive 35-17 victory in the 2022 home opener. In front of a crowd of nearly 18,500, the Gamecocks put on a show. First year Head Coach Rich Rodriguez’ tenure continues the momentum gained from game one. The Gamecocks, who moved to 2-0, have now defeated two 2021 playoff teams in the first two weeks of the year. Expectations have not only been…

NFL SKILL GROUP RANKINGS 2022 The NFL is loaded with talent at wide receiver and running back. Tight end is a bit more cut and dry at the very top, but still very competitive. Instead of solely doing an individual position list for those groups, I think it’s more compelling to jump into the skill groupings as a whole. In an NFL where more points are being scored than ever before, you would expect the personnel groupings to be extremely deep and versatile. You’d be correct.  Here are the NFL Skill Group Rankings 2022. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Coming off of…
