    The AFC North, Best Division in Football? - Next Fan Up - 6/6/2015

    in Football

    PodVader talks to the SuperFans of the AFC North as they preview the Black and Blue Division.  


    Another 49er retires...No fantasy for Tony Romo...Cam Newton gets a new deal...


    How will that deal effect Joe Flacco's contract next year?  And the rest of the QB's in the North?  


    The Steelers the team to beat in the division?  If so, it's because of the offense, which is odd to say in Pittsburgh. Ravens and Bengals might have something to say about that.  If the Browns compete for the division title, it will be because of their defense. 


    What about the RBs?  The Bengals raise their hand first as the best in the division. Le'veon Bell is the best single back in the division.


    A RB is nothing without his Oline - best in Baltimore?  Starting 5 in Cleveland is pretty good if they stay healthy.  Bengals may have some shuffling.  Steelers have some continuity on their line.


    The WRs in Pittsburgh are fantastic and Antonio Brown might be the best WR in the NFL.  The Ravens have never had a true number 1 WR. Hey, why are we not talking about AJ Green with the Bengals and the rest of that WR crew?  And yes, Cleveland is last here too.


    On D, Cleveland will be tough. Bengals will be improved this year.  Ravens will be fine despite the loss of Haloti Ngata.  Steelers have a bunch of changes on D including their DCoor.  


    Schedule predictions.  


    Check out the Browns kicker, "Murder Leg".  He will help with the new longer extra point which Simon believes is a disadvantage for the all outdoor division. 


    Send in applications - especially Houston Texans, Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals fans.

  • Beyond The Bench: AFC and NFC North Previews

    in Sports

    Ryan Stern is live every Tuesday to discuss the world of sports.


    Football has been played! With a week of preseason games in the books, NFL teams are going to start to take shape. We will discuss some of the more prominent injuries that may effect the regular season for certain teams.


    Then, we will begin our AFC and NFC Northern Divisional previews. In the AFC, can the Bengals finally take the next step and win at least a playoff game? Do the Steelers have enough on the defensive side of the ball to not put all the pressure on the talented offense? Can the Ravens fly under the radar again and make another run in the playoffs? Is there a light at the end of the Cleveland tunnel?


    At 9:30, we will be joined by friend of the show, John Laub, to discuss the fantasy relevance of these two divisions. Can the Steelers have a top 3 player at all 3 major positions? Which sleepers should you be looking for? We will answer those, plus other questions.


    We will close the show with the NFC North preview. Are the Packers the only team that can win this division? Can Teddy Bridgewater be the conductor of the hype train surrounding the Vikings? Can the Lions sneak their way into the playoffs again? Are the Bears primed for another top 10 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft?


    Want to discuss any of these teams or your own team? We are taking calls tonight at 760-283-0846.

  • AFC South - NFL Preview; will Luck be on anyone's side in this division?

    in Sports

    "With the second pick in the NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans select Marcus Mariota" and "With the third pick in the NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Dante Fowler, Jr."  The AFC South proudly had the Indianapolis Colts, in the AFC Championship game.  However, they also had two teams that drafed second and third, respectively.


    The Indianapolis Colts have won back to back AFC East titles, and played in the AFC Championship.  Andrew Luck has been everything the Colts hoped for when they drafted him with the first pick.  Offensively, they can line up against defense and put up points. The finished third in passing offense, but a disappointing 22nd, in rushing.  Defensively, the ranked a modest 11th, in yards allowed.  The lack of pass rush was evident, in the AFC Championship.  Through the draft and free agency, the Colts added Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, and Phillip Dorsett.  Two areas of concern: the offensive line and defense.


    Houston finished 9-7, and made the division race interesting, at one point.  However, J.J. Watt can not do everything even though he tried.   This team is the complete opposite of the Colts.  They win with defense.  They added Vince Wolfork, and are hoping that Jadeveon Clowney can return from his knee injury, and be as good as advertised.  Adrian Foster is going to miss significant time, which will hurt an already struggling offense.  The biggest question will be quarterback play.  They traded for Ryan Mallett last year, let Ryan Fitzpatrick leave, but Brian Hoyer is listed as the starting quarterback.  There should be no concern about defense, but offensively there are huge question marks.

  • AFC West ~ NFL Preview; Can three teams make the playoffs from this division?

    in Sports

    When a coach wins four division championships; in a row, you would not think that a coaching change would take place.  John Fox led the Broncos to the Super Bowl, but could not bring the Vince Lombardi Trophy back to Denver.  John Elway decided to make a coaching change, and hired Gary Kubiak.  Peyton Manning battled injuries last season, and did not look like an elite quarterback.  The expectations are high, and it is apparent that it is Super Bowl or bust.  


    San Diego and Kansas City have been the bridesmaids, in this division.  Is this the year that they can overtake the Broncos?  The Chargers had a rotating door at running back last year so they drafted Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordan.  The Chiefs passing attack has been weak in the red zone, and getting touchdown production from their wide receivers.  In free agency, they signed Jeremy Maclin. The Oakland Raiders signed a lot of veteran free agents, on defense, in 2014.  That project failed, but they have many young pieces on offense.  


    Can this division claim the two wild card spots, in the AFC?  Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.

  • The NFL 2015 Season Preview Podcast with Greg Cosell: AFC North

    in Football

    It's time for football again, and time for Doug Farrar of Sports Illustrated and Greg Cosell of NFL Films to preview the 2015 season, division by division. We start with the AFC North, a division with all kinds of questions: Can Baltimore keep its secondary together enough to contend for a Super Bowl title? Do the Bengals have enough of a team around Andy Dalton to finally transcend Dalton's limitations? Do the Browns have any chance at the quarterback position? And can the Steelers' explosive offense do enough to get around a defense that seems to be an atypical mess these days? Greg and Doug break it down schematically as only they can.
