December 22nd, 2014

-Man has it been a long time since I’ve done one of these.  Sorry about that.  I got really busy for several weeks and never got around to writing much on my blog.  A lot of happened in the sports world in the last few weeks.  Who’s ready for Bowl Season?  I can’t wait to [...]

Week 15 NFL Rookie Rankings

December 19th, 2014

First off let me apologize for not getting all the rankings out lately.  It’s been hectic with all the new products and sales going on.  I’ve been meaning to do this so many times though.  So I apologize for the delay.  With that being said, I also must admit that I’m not excited about updating [...]

The Bowman Reclamation Project

November 28th, 2014

Overview •There’s no denying that the Bowman name is losing some of its luster.  Over the last few years many of the Bowman brands have failed to live up to expectations.  This is happening for several reasons, which will be outlined below. •The idea behind this project is to change the entire way the Bowman [...]

Week 11 & 12 NFL Rookie Rankings

November 26th, 2014

Sorry for not doing a Week 11 Rankings.  It’s been pretty hectic around here.  I’ve combined Weeks 11 and 12 for this ranking.  As I’ve mentioned before, the received in this year’s class are truly remarkable.  I’m not sure when (if ever) we’ve seen as good a collective group of rookie receivers as we’re seeing [...]

Week 10 NFL Rookie Rankings

November 13th, 2014

Another week is in the books.  It was a fun week, but the rookies were not overly impressive.  We continue to see a few do well, but consistency remains a problem.  That really shouldn’t come as a huge surprise as rookies often struggle to adapt to the speed of the NFL game.  The good news [...]

November 10th, 2014

-Here’s hoping the NBA rookies can turn it on at some point.  We’ve seen a lot of lackluster performances so far.  If you can name the only rookie to score 20 points in a game so far, I’ll be amazingly impressed.  Waiting… Jabari Parker?  Nope.  Andrew Wiggins?  Nope.  Elfrid Payton?  Nope.  His name is Bojan [...]

Random Thoughts 11/7/14

November 7th, 2014

-I love the panic that is ensuing surrounding the Cavs.  I suppose everyone figured you could throw together a completely new team and a new coach and just go out and start winning.  The reality is that this is going to take time.  It’s no different than it was with the Heat.  Everyone expected the [...]

Week 9 NFL Rookie Rankings

November 5th, 2014

We’re really starting to see serious progress at the receiver position.  I’d be shocked if there aren’t 3-4 top notch receivers from this class within 2-3 years (if not sooner).  Sadly, just about all the other positions are lagging behind.  There’s still plenty of time for improvements though. #1. Johnny Manziel QB Cleveland Browns (Last [...]

Week 8 NFL Rookie Rankings

October 30th, 2014

Another week in the books and another fairly tough week for the rookies.  We continue to see a few solid performances, but certainly nothing amazing.  I would say that it’s safe to assume we don’t have a star yet from this rookie crop.  That doesn’t mean that we won’t have a star at some point.   [...]

NBA Season Preview

October 28th, 2014

The NBA season is FINALLY back.  As many of you know, I am in love with the NBA.  It’s my favorite of all the sports and I watch more of it than anything else.  I know I’m in the minority there, but I just can’t help myself.  I wanted to put together a season preview [...]
