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 [...]

Random Thoughts 11/10/14

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 [...]

Week 7 NFL Rookie Rankings

October 22nd, 2014

It wasn’t an amazing week for rookies, but we are starting to see some of the talent shine through.  The QBs are still lagging behind, but some of the other skill position players are beginning to see more playing time.  Guys like Martavis Bryant aren’t quite ready to be on this list, but they are [...]

Week 6 NFL Rookie Rankings

October 16th, 2014

We are just about a third of the way through the season.  We’ve seen some solid performances by rookies, but still nothing amazing.  I keep waiting for one of these guys to really break out and become a star for his team.  It hasn’t happened yet, but there is still time in the season.  I [...]

Week 5 NFL Rookie Rankings

October 8th, 2014

Sorry for skipping Week 4.  Honestly, there wasn’t a ton that happened with the rookies, but I shouldn’t have missed the week.  There is still a good bit of skepticism around this rookie class.  We haven’t seen any breakout performances from the top tier players.  There have been some great games, but mostly by smaller [...]
