by Robert Ferringo - 8/17/2009
Four years ago I was writing on this very site that Dante Culpepper was the most overrated quarterback in the NFL. As you might expect, this statement was met with a waterfall of vitriol and was nearly as popular as Rick Pitino at a Birther’s rally.

NFL Handicapping: Unheralded Players
by Robert Ferringo - 8/7/2009
Brett Favre mows his lawn and it’s front-page news. Chad Johnson changes his name and he ends up just chewing up airtime. Terrell Owens doesn’t do something crazy and there are op-eds discussing his mental state. Well, Favre isn’t playing this year. Johnson is a good receiver for a team that’s won about five games per year the last two seasons. And Owens had nearly as many dropped passes (10) last year as his quarterback had touchdowns (11).

Weighing In On The Cutler-Orton Debate
by T.O. Whenham - 7/30/2009
One of the biggest debates heading into the 2009-10 NFL season is whether the Denver Broncos made the right move by trading away their Pro Bowl quarterback, Jay Cutler.
