The New England Patriots are currently in the middle of a rebuild under new head coach Jerod Mayo. For the first time in a long time, the Patriots will take the field in 2024 without Bill Belichick leading them and there are a lot of questions surrounding the team heading into the new season. In a shocking development, one current Patriots player recently revealed that he almost died from a mystery illness in training camp last season. The New England Patriots placed offensive tackle Calvin Anderson on the non-football sickness list prior to their 2023 training camp. At that point in their planning, it…

After taking over the Colorado Buffaloes program that had won just a single game the year before, Sanders built a new roster through the transfer portal and cranked out four wins, while his team remained competitive in a handful of its other contests. But it’s the way that “Coach Prime” is running the Colorado program that has caught so much attention. He understands the power of branding and has a camera crew capturing behind-the-scenes glimpses into the day-to-day happenings of his team in an attempt…

The San Francisco 49ers have come close to winning a Super Bowl the last two seasons and they are heading into 2024 with every intention on claiming another Lombardi Trophy. For the most part, John Lynch and the 49ers brass have been able to keep the bulk of last year’s squad in tact, minus a few additions on defense like Arik Armstead and Chase Young, who the team acquired halfway through the season via a trade with Washington. But one of the biggest storylines all offseason has centered around the San Francisco 49ers possibly trading one of their star wide…

The Dallas Cowboys were expected to have a monumental offseason with so many potentially franchise-changing moves to make. Owner Jerry Jones has made it clear the Cowboys are going “all-in” for 2024 and decided to retain Mike McCarthy for one more season to see if he can get the talented roster past the first round in the playoffs and possibly reach the Super Bowl expectations Jones expects. But instead of making any significant free agent moves to replace the talent the team lost from last year’s squad, Jones and the Cowboys brass made only a few modest moves. The most…

The New England Patriots built a dynasty in the NFL that spanned over nearly two decades, winning 6 Super Bowls Bowls, nine AFC Championship Games, and sixteen AFC East titles, earning an overall regular season record of 266–121. Tom Brady was the team’s quarterback for most of the dynasty, winning several NFL MVP honors and Super Bowl MVP awards along the way. But with the team’s success came controversy and scandal. There was “Spygate” where the New England Patriots were accused of filming their opponents practices so they would know their plays ahead of playing them in regular season games.…

The Minnesota Vikings feel like they have enough talent to compete for a Super Bowl in 2024, and now they will have a decision to make when it comes to their starting QB for the season. The Vikings traded up one spot to select Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy, No. 10 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft. The Vikings were looking for their next franchise signal caller, and the Minnesota brass was sold that McCarthy is the guy who will take the Vikings to the next level. The main question heading into the summer is when McCarthy will be ready to…

The Las Vegas Raiders are in the midst of rebuilding the team’s culture after the last decade has been filled with drama and controversy. Antonio Pierce certainly looks like the right leader to right the ship, but only time will tell. On paper, the Raiders don’t have a roster that makes anyone believe they will compete for Super Bowls anytime soon, but the fan base will have to remain patient. While most of the drama and off-the-field issues with players came before Josh McDaniels took over, there were multiple reports the former Patriots OC wasn’t liked by the players and…
