The Alabama Crimson Tide are beginning to shape the new coaching staff under former Washington Huskies head coach Kalen DeBoer, who took the position after Nick Saban shocked the college football world by suddenly retiring last week. In a short time, DeBoer has started to assemble a staff that will face instant massive expectations to win immediately and pick up where Saban left off. So far, the former Huskies coach has solidified his two top coordinators. The biggest move was former Washington offensive coordinator Ryan Grubbs deciding to follow the Huskies head coach halfway across the country to Tuscaloosa. Grubb…

The Arizona Cardinals appear to be rebuilding both on the field and off it. In the first year under new head coach and former Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon, Arizona finished with a (4-13) record and clearly lacked significant talent on both sides of the ball. The Cardinals have committed to QB Kyler Murray long-term and while he was out for the first half of the 2023 season continuing to heal from a brutal knee injury he suffered last year, he eventually came back and it took him a while to look like his old self. While Gannon has…

The Chicago Bears have one of the biggest decisions to make in recent franchise history and it involves the future of their former first round QB, Justin Fields. With the No. 1 overall pick in April’s 2024 NFL Draft, the Bears brass can either select one of the two “can’t miss” QB prospects in Caleb Williams (USC) or Drake Maye (UNC) according to most NFL talent evaluators. Or they can leverage the No. 1 overall pick, and continue to build around Fields, who has struggled at times but appeared to take significant steps forward this season. If the Chicago Bears…

The Dallas Cowboys have a (1-3) postseason record with Mike McCarthy — and many believed Jerry Jones would make a bold decision and move on from his head coach after the embarrassing home drubbing at home agains the Packers on Sunday — but that’s not the case. Even with Bill Belichick available and rumors swirling about the friendship between the former New England Patriots coach and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, the team announced on Wednesday night they were keeping McCcarthy. It feels like the smart move as the former Packers coach has led Dallas to 3-straight (12-5) regular seasons. This…

The Indianapolis Colts put together an impressive season given their star rookie QB Anthony Richardson looked like their future franchise starter before suffering a season-ending injury in a Week 4 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. As the Colts attempt to add new pieces this offseason and plan for key free agent moves — with their own stars like Michael Pittman Jr., running back Zach Moss who carried the load for much of 2023 and backup QB Gardner Minshew who almost led Indianapolis into the playoffs — their owner will likely be dealing with more serious issues. On Jan. 9, the…

Robert Griffin III (RG3) put together one of the most memorable seasons in Washington Commanders (formerly Redskins) history in 2012. The Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor took Washington to the playoffs with a (10-6) record and hosted a home game after winning the NFC East. The game started well for Griffin, but he suffered a brutal knee injury that led to a Washington loss and was the start of the end for the former No. 1 overall pick’s NFL career. Under Mike Shanahan — who claims former owner Dan Snyder pushed to make the massive trade for Griffin — the…
