If this season is proving anything, it's that nobody can figure out who is good besides the top four teams on our rankings. The Rams, Saints, Chiefs, and Patriots all have looked like conference contenders since before the season started. Yes, even yours truly had the Chiefs as a Mahomes-led dark...

We should expect it by now -- a nearly complete upheaval of the league's hierarchy from most preseason predictions. It happens like clockwork, where most "experts" -- ahem, including yours truly -- thinks they have a solid grasp on whose good and who isn't. Nobody ever really does, not in a league...

NFL training camp is here and, as I wrote yesterday , that means it’s that time of year when over-analysis runs rampant.

I’ve heard it nonstop over the past week. People telling me they hate the Patriots. They hate Tom Brady. They hate Belichick. No, actually, I’m wrong. They haven’t been telling me this over the past week. It’s been the past decade. The same tired excuses are always there. The NFL is rigged, they...

NFL instant replay is broken. The man who helped break it is still in charge, and that should scare the daylights out of every football fan.
